    Why close aides of Rahul Gandhi deserting him ?

    This is the time for Congress to make its house straight and dwell with all the basic problems and strengthen the grass root level in the run up to Big elections queued up. But over the past few years the Congress has been loosing important leaders to BJP and thus making it inconsequential in the country. The latest being the Rahul close aide Jatin Prasada joining BJP giving a shock to the Congress leader and his party. Congress need to conduct organizational election and gain the lost public connect so that it can withstand the onslaught of BJP challenge.

    It is not a new thing if jatin prasad has joined bjp I don't see anything shocking in it because opportunist leaders change their party for their bright future. Politics is a dirty game. Nobody can be trusted in politics except a few leaders.
    Congress party is undergoing very bad patches. But good or bad time does not stay for ever. Today it is the good time of bjp we don't know how long it will continue but one day it will lose this game of power. If congress will replace bjp I can't say. It may be any other party or alliance of parties.
    Rahul Gandhi is not a favourite leader of the author. But famous political analysts who have been expelled from main stream media now are active on social media have good opinion about his foresight.
    In Rajasthan Sachin pilot has dispute with C.M. and Punjab congress party is facing disputes between Sidhu and C.M. According to some political analysts and youtube channels bjp is also facing internal disputes between the centre and U.P. Some problems are raising hood in Karnataka, West Bengal and M.P.

    Leaving of Jitendra Prasad at the present moment is not a healthy culture since his exit from the Congress and joining again BJP would be remembered by the people. Politics was a constructive tool in the past and the leaders of all parties were conscious of their images. Some of the leaders like Lal Bahadur Sastri, Shyama Pada Mukherjee, Rajiv Gandhi were the best examples of maintaining high stature during their times. Unfortunately these are things of the past and present politics has taken an ugly shape.
    This is the time when we must have the strong opposition to guide the present government for better governance and this can be achieved by a disciplined opposition party. Now is the time to take stock of the position from the opposition.

    This is time for Congress to make its house orderly, Good leader should lead the party with the support of some good leaders from the party. There were very good leaders in Congress who worked for the Nation and the party. But slowly many people went away from the party for various reasons. It is time for the party to bring all the good leaders to the front and make all-out efforts to win on their own. They should not join hands with some other parties who wanted power for their parties also. We have seen how all other parties came together to defeat this party in the past. This party should get back that glory.
    There should be deliberations among the important leaders of the party in a closed-door meeting and a soul search should be done. They should understand what are the points making their party distant from the voters. They should take corrective steps.

    The leadership crisis in the Congress party is going on for a certain period. The party is unable to win elections on its own and that is creating trouble for many leaders. Everyone in politics nowadays looks for a better opportunity and when they get that they jump to the other side. Introspection among the party higher-ups is a must otherwise, this trend will continue. If an individual/certain group manage the control of anything even after failures then the command must be given to some other person or groups. Otherwise, it is quite difficult for any political party to remain intact.

    Jitin Prasada's exit from the Congress party, due to his so-called difference of opinion with the leadership, need not be given much importance. As a young leader, he had a close connection with Rahul Gandhi and could gain his confidence but he himself could not produce any positive results for the party when he was given charge of the elections in UP and West Bengal and thus failed to prove his mettle when it came to organising and leading. He is not someone who has a large public following and his bidding goodbye to a party that has nurtured him and also his father will not create any ripples in the party.

    But we need to discuss his joining the BJP more constructively. He must have smelt better prospects for him and must be looking forward to the UP elections that are around the corner. As per reliable reports, BJP has already spread its nets to woo shaky leaders from other parties to strengthen its hold in states that are going for election and Jitin has taken the bait.

    The poor performance of the BJP in the recent local body elections in UP has set the BJP think tanks scratching their brains and they have apparently concluded that the higher castes in the state have distanced themselves from the party since Yoginath, a member of the Thakur community, has taken charge as the CM of the state. They calculated the move and must have used their usual tactics of luring with money/ power/ position to trap this Brahmin from the other side. The fact being that BJP has never been kind to people who defected from other parties and joined them will be realized by Jitin sooner or later.

    I hope good sense will prevail over the Congress to close the doors permanently for all those who leave the party in search of greener pastures.

    Congress party is going through a difficult phase and it is becoming more difficult for it to survive what to say of bringing the past glory back. There are umpteen reasons for that but the problem is generally attributed to the high command or the party leadership and slowly the old stalwarts also start leaving the party one by one and that would eventually make the party weaker.

    Jatin Prasada leaving Congress and joining BJP is indeed a big setback for Congress. Many leaders of the Congress party have joined the BJP in the recent past and it only means that they are feeling more secure in their political future in the other party. It is very important here that Congress takes some big and bold steps to strengthen its political position, only then the honor of the party can remain. Whether the anti-defection law is working in this case or not but at least Congress should be more aware and do not allow leaders to change parties in this way.

    This would not be easy to predict the consequences.

    We evident of many of the TMC leaders joining BJP before WB election and although the BJP did perform well but could not be able to win the majority to form the government. But then political chemistry in WB with that of other states for example UP is different.

    Congress has lost its relevance except few states and till the leadership evident of some changes we do not see its revival instinct. But then the different states are emerging of its own faces and the challenges would be only those like in the WB, Delhi and UP.

    Shifting stance of Jatin Prasada for joining BJP will have little relevance in changing vote share but for Jatin Prasada himself could prove a better prospective.

    After reading thorough the above posts, I am wondering why Congress Party still remains a good option for governance including Raga as a good leader for PM candidate while they are criticizing everything of BJP.

    However, let it be I will go with mine.

    Any gum or adhesive has a maximum limit. In due course even the most strong bond also may give away.

    From the days of 'selfless service'we are moving day by day towards the situation of 'Isme mujhe kya milta hai" . What is it for me in this. So people flock to the places where they expect to get very good benefits. In the same way they start leaving when they find that they don't get much from there.

    Congress was a very strong party with money and political power when they were the ruling party at centre and most states. Even a chota leader would have command and money at his beck and call. But by and by Congress started losing its rule . After Rahul's coming the party is continuously facing defeats and losses. He himself has become middle aged now from a vibrant youth to whom people wee keeping expectations.

    Now, most politicians have come to the realisation that Congress may not be able to resurrect and definitely not under Rahul. So they have to safeguard themselves and seek greener pastures.
    That is just happening. Today it is Jatin Prasad, tomorrow it may be someone else.

    This is not restricted to Congress.It can happen to other parties also, if they do't give benefits to their leaders and workers.

    When the leadership is not working with determination the party ranks are bound to shift.

    Mohan, can we apply the same logic in the case of members of the BJP who are leaving the party? For example, in West Bengal and Lakshadweep now. Yes, lack of proper leadership can be one reason but it is never the only reason.
