Congress just passed a law with Parliament out of session gutting the anti-corruption tools we all fought for, allowing criminals to stay in office through their appeals -- all to save one powerful MP convicted of fraud. It’s insane, and it’s a stain on the history of this country.
This is the same party that marched with Gandhi and Nehru -- that India’s poor, election after election, vote for with hope. This is the party that is supposed to offer a future for India as a united country, without religious divisions, without internal violence.
But a few crooked MPs don’t own Congress. We do. This is our party, and whether we vote for them or for the BJP, they represent all of India and are only as powerful as we make them. It’s time to take Congress back.
Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will ask Sonia Gandhi and her ministers whether they support fast track courts for MPs, making sure that long appeals don’t mean Indians are stuck with criminal politicians for years. This smart move can fix the damage their new law does, and save the party from their corruption stained reputation so close to the election. But it’s going to take all of us, coming together, to take Congress back and make it see sense. Send a message to stand up for our future together.
