The Congress has also taken note of the fact that the two BJP CMs in the election going states of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan had been in the centre of two high profile scams—Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the Vyappam case and Vasundhara Raje in the Lalit Modi scandal—but the party had not given in to public censure and asked for their resignations. And with time, the allegations have lost steam and are not major issues in the coming elections either. Compare this to the Congress when it immediately asked for Ashok Chavan’s resignation as Maharashtra CM in the Adarsh case (though he has since been given some relief by the High Court in December 2017). Now the Congress feels that it was wrong to take the moral high ground and demand resignations until the charges have been cleared. Instead, it should have taken the BJP way and let the accused continue in office till the charges have been proved.
