Did Rajiv Gandhi predict it right?Rajiv foresaw the collapse of congress way back in 1987. He was dismissive of Political leaders either. In conversation with Gorbachev the then president of soviet he clearly explains how congress will fall. The reasons he gave are
1. Congress is lacking ideological intellects and everything is moving around him/ Gandhi family. He severely criticised the popularity around him.
2. The intellectual core of congress has moved to the right wing parties.
But he was not concerned about fall of congress but the rise of immoral politics. He goes on.
3. The future political generation concerns itself all about capturing power and nothing more.
He specifically gave a hint to soviet leader about how India- soviet relations will be. He says " In international arena ideologies will not matter in future and alignments will be purely based on self interest of nations. ". Micheal Gorbachev after hearing patiently just said "true indeed".
Exactly 30 years later India is now aligning with U.S.
Indian political scenario has become as what he has predicted.
How do you rate Rajive gandhi's vision.Has his prophecy come true? What are its implications?
