Anupam Kher : Accidental Hero

Can Prime Minister or BJP leaders ignore the advice of the RSS? If not, then what is the locus-standi of Ram Madhav on J & K. Was he an 'expert' on J & K?...

Anupam Kher : Accidental Hero

Vidya Bhushan Rawat

The propaganda machinery of the Sangh parivar is on full swing. You are now being forced to consume loads of information about 'Accidental Prime Minister' and both the government and BJP's social media cell is on an overdrive to promote it.


I wish to add a few things in the beginning here that this is not an issue defending Dr Man Mohan Singh or Sonia Gandhi or Narendra Modi but of accountability and responsibilities of elected representatives. As a person Dr Man Mohan Singh definitely is and was far superior to Narendra Modi both in terms of knowledge and dignity, that he brought to his post. Our humbleness must not be considered as weakness and we are sure history will judge Man Mohan Singh in a much better way to his successor.


There is another issue of an over hyped actor of the Bambai cinema. Yes, I am talking about Anupam Kher who has taken it upon himself to be the 'champion' defender of this government and perhaps competing with his wife for seat in Parliament. BJP is definitely looking for more stars from the Cricket and cinema to rescue them in 2019. Many of these absolutely failed and opportunist fellows are looking for greener pasture and protect their business interests and will be happy to contest in the Lok Sabha polls. Anupam Kher nurture along with many others nurture such hope to be 'elected' representatives because they could not do much through their art except to defend the Brahmanical disorder and rigid customs. He may be hailed as a great actor by many but he remains much inferior to both Om Puri and Nasiruddin Shah, both as actor as well as persons who have taken stand on important public issues. For me except his initial 'Saaransh', there are not enough movies which are worth remembering.


Now, we come to the issue of 'Accidental Prime Minister' and questions being raised about it. The major theme of the film is that Congress President Sonia Gandhi was 'advising' Prime Minister of what to do and what not do. Now, these are laughing issues to say the least. In democracies, party is bigger than the government and party guides the government because ultimately it is the party which has to go to polls. Sonia Gandhi as a UPA chairperson was definitely entitled to write or guide to the government but it is up-to the government to agree or not agree her view point.

In democracies, you cannot hand over the council of ministers to a few selected bureaucrats. Even those in the current dispensations hail from the Sangh Parivar background. The system is called political because it is politics which guide it. Council of Ministers is actually accountable to Parliament where questions are raised and responded. And it is the party which defend the government and its actions both in parliament and in the street.


The argument that Man Mohan Singh should not have listened or surrender his position is absurd. A system cannot surrender. Yes, political leaders call the shot and this is a reality.


The problem of bureaucracy, or corporatized media in India was that it wanted to control Man Mohan Singh as it is doing with Narendra Modi. Sanjay Baru kind of persons could never have been appointed if Sonia was calling the shots on every day affair. Baru is a highly over-rated person and his book was a dishonest attempt to get favor from Narendra Modi.


When Anna Hazare launched his Lok Pal movement, we opposed the entire premise because we still feel that supremacy of the Parliament and assemblies must be restored. You cannot make Lok Pal a boss of parliament and everything. So, the issue is not merely whether Sonia was dictating or not. The clever media is making it because they never want the parties to dictate the agenda for the governments. Governments can’t be delinked from parties. Today, BJP party is dictating agenda to the government along with the business and corporate. Since the agenda is suiting the corporate hence, they are quiet otherwise they would have made noises.


You cannot suggest that once a person become prime minister or minister, he or she should leave the party or forget about them. Party is not here to make you CMs or PMs and then allow you to do what you wish to do. Party cadres can’t be allowed to be just war horses during the campaign to defend the government. A government that does not listen to the party always loses. In our societies if we allow the government and council of ministers to be just surrounded by the corporate and bureaucrats then one can never think of any pro people policies. One must not forget that Man Mohan Singh, Chidambaram, Montek Singh Ahluwalia were the favorite persons of media and corporate and Sonia Gandhi was being seen as too 'socialist' who was guided by the 'jhollawallah' economists and social activists and hence an obstacle.


These corporatized castes now enjoying their immunity in the current dispensation but they also realize that an administration that has nothing to show to the people will ultimately boomerang hence attempts are being made to change the narrative. 2019 must be the 'hisab-kitab' of Narendra Modi and BJP and not of what Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi did in 2009 as they were punished by the people. The government of the day cannot hide its failures by such diversionary tactics as the Janata knows well and will respond on time.
