Congress schemes, to no avail

Comments 0
SummaryIts defeat must be read as a vote against Rahul Gandhi’s legislation-based approach to governance.

to such a failure is to tar others with the same brush, and it is not particularly difficult to exchange corruption charges in today’s political environment. But what the people have voted against is not corruption alone, but also the idea that a centralised group in Delhi can determine what the people should consider to be their rights, and then enforce them. The voters have told Rahul Gandhi in the strongest possible terms that if he really believes in the rights-based approach, he should at least let the people decide what their rights should be.
