Rein­vent GOP for Come­back

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page - N RA­MA­MURTHY

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.
