Reinvent GOP for Comeback
Apropos ‘Congress Needs Reform at All Levels’ (ET, May 20), the party is ailing due to three factors: patronage, class attitude and dynasty. The CWC meet was a scripted drama as everyone acted to keep her position safe in the party. The thinking in the Congress that just like in 1977, 1992 and 2004, the party will bounce back under the “dynasty” is wrong. The party must restore inner-party democracy and encourage mass leaders from the gram panchayat level. Unless the party reinvents itself, it will be difficult for it to come back against a rejuvenated BJP under the dynamic leadership of Narendra Modi.
