A quick post..Just came across this news.It is to be noted,Yashwant Sinha says “Reluctance to introspect and introspect comprehensively and openly is unacceptable to a large number of people within the party and also to many people oustside the party who supported against dynastic politics”.

The crisis in BJP deepened today with Yashwant Sinha quitting all party posts, including vice president, and hit out at the leadership demanding resignation of all office-bearers of party and Parliamentary Party owning collective responsibility for the electoral defeat.

Sinha, former external affairs Minister, raised the banner of revolt just before BJP chief Rajnath Singh addressed a press conference imposing a gag order on leaders from airing their views in public failing which he threatened disciplinary action.

The MP from Hazaribagh in Jharkhand sent a four-page letter to Rajnath Singh and other members of the party’s core group in which he said it was difficult to avoid impression that in BJP “we put a premium on failure”.

He said he was also resigning from being in-charge of Karnataka affairs and as head of the Foreign Affairs Cell of the party in response to senior leader Jaswant Singh’s suggestion at a core committee meeting that there should be collective responsibility for failure.

“Our reluctance to introspect and introspect comprehensively and openly is unacceptable to a large number of people within the party. So is the rat race for posts. If we are a party with a difference, let us set an example in abnegation,” Sinha said in the letter.

This one is shocking news for most of us, but it is well planned, it seems, after the series of events that took place,after Hafeez Sayeed’s release.

Just before our home minister’s visit to Kashmir,Senior BJP leader Arun Shourie in the Rajya Sabha has given this speech.

Some excerpts from that speech.

The BJP,accused the Centre of depending too much on the US while dealing with Pakistan in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks. “Don’t run to Mummy (the US) all the time. Pakistan is not dependent on the US, rather it is the other way round as America wants an honourable exit from the war it started in the region against terrorism and for this it needs Pakistan’s support,” BJP member Arun Shourie said in Rajya Sabha.

The situation post-Mumbai terror attacks, he said, was “treacherous and far more complex. Therefore greater effort on part of the government is required”.Arun Shourie also cautioned the government not to get involved in sending evidence about Mumbai attacks to Pakistan as “this will put it in a position of being a judge”.

Shourie said that the country needs to understand the objectives of US in the region and its compulsions. “Look at the nature of the Pakistani state. Has it changed? Look at the
objectives of the US in the region and its compulsions. This will give a realistic view,” he said.

Shourie, while quoting reports about the Prime Minister’s meeting with US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the recently held G-20 Summit in London, said that this too apparently centred around on how India can tone down the kind of reaction that emerged within the country after 26/11.

The Rajya Sabha member added that while the US is trying to restrain India from taking any aggressive stand against Pakistan, there is also a lot of pressure from Washington on New Delhi to keep peace with the neighbouring country.
