Mahatma Gandhi Community Forum

Joining the Indian National Congress Party

Last fortnight, I formally joined the Indian National Congress party along with my supporters in front of the Member of the Council, Mettur Township and the congress party functionaries. Collectively, we pledged to strengthen the party and Dr. Manmohan Singh's government at the centre and actively campaign for the success of the pary under the leadership of Sonia Gandhiji and the Leader of the Youth wing Rahul Gandhiji. This would bring a better orientation of the politics surrounding me for many years and will be a better way to serve the nation.

Hitherto, I am working and communicating with my friends belonging to other parties also. Now on, I would like my thoughts and work to focus on the INC party activities and policies and continue to function as I did before informally.

Whenever find time and appropriate, I would continue to contribute at GandhiTopia and meet you with my writings and comments.

Thank you all
Regards with love and peace!

Dear DD,

I am back here for sometime to spend with Gandhitoipia friends.

Your words are truly said in the common spheres of public arena. My journey to be Gandhi was well initiated with the political will in the beginning itself and Indian politics, as you believe, seems not to be a refuge even for a scoundrel nowadays....

But, for me, it is another milestone in my political journey and I do not know where the journey ends, or , where I would be.

Positive thinking, Optimistic approach and the sheer will of Gandhian spirit are the only investments I have with me.

Thanks for the wishes.

it is reassuring to know that you are firm in your commitment to Gandhi. I earnestly wish you all the best. The politics is known as last refuge of scoundrels. But that is because,good people do not stand up to the pressures of politics. In the Indian context, Gandhians adopted non-political course of action. This left an open ground for all others who even hate Gandhi. With your entry, let us hope something positive happens in indian politics.
By the way, your frinds on Gandhitopia will miss you. especially, I am thankful to you for your comment on my discussion 'Am I a Gandhian?'. you said there can be a Gandhian doctor, a Gandhian Engineer etc. Very thoughtful concept that expands Gandhian philosophy in the practical sense. I am happy that now there is a Gandhian politician, a rarity these days!

Yes, GB, I sincerely thank you for your simple, yet, thoughtful comment. I took the decision as I have to face the challenges even today. But, Whether I could succeed I do not know. I surely would follow the path of Mahatma to the best of my efforts and make a difference that I can.

BB I wish you well in your new path.
A pledge is a SACRED oath and as a politician you will be challenged many times just as Gandhi was challenged.
