The sooner the party wakes up to the reality of the huge damage that Sam and his team are causing to Narendra Modiji and the party, the better it will be in salvaging the image of BJP in 2019.
Recently social media is circulating an article on TOI about how NRI Organizations such as OFBJP(Overseas Friends of BJP) are going to big way support Modi ji and what they plan to do. It is best to reserve such announcements and I was told the opposite side is taking the cue and working on it with much more zeal whether we are going to implement or not.
let our results speak and not pre-announce things. Let us not end up as buffoons, full of air and little substance who in the end delivers little that matter.
Congress NRI activity is run by Sam Pitroda based in Chicago and no one really knew until BJP lost all 3 states in Hindi belt on how deadly his efforts are. Pitroda is no stranger to Indian politics, he is the man who worked with Rajiv Gandhi and modernized telecom in India, he is close to Gandhi family and he is the guy taking Rahul Gandhi around and coaching him. He knows thick and thin of Indian politics and he can implement things with deadly precision. The way he made BJP and Modi defensive on Rafael and carefully helped Congress campaign and helped win the 3 states need attention. The efforts are described in a social media post given below. While everyone is calling Rahul a ‘pappu’, Pitroda is carefully coaching him with highly effective professionals in staged conferences to show Rahul Gandhi is no less match to Modi.
I asked Sam Pitroda about it but he was reticent other than saying that it is not true. He challenged me to read his autobiography, ‘Dreaming big‘, and I read it and he has so many accomplishments which are impressive but I also challenged him on certain things. I think he is a lost man if he thinks he can save India using destructive Congress and he is probably thinking that he will wield a lot of influence like he did with Rajiv Gandhi with Rahul and Sonia and will take the country forward.
Before we open our mouths, let our results speak and not pre-announce things. Let us not end up as buffoons, full of air and little substance who in the end delivers little that matter. Let us see how we can we make a real difference on the ground. We will never be effective if we do these things with the expectation of getting something back except for the love of the nation, love towards a mother.
What Pitroda is doing with deadly precision using a group of professionals from Chicago?
“If you are surprised at the sheer number of concerted attacks on the NDA Government in general and PM Modiji in particular, then you haven’t got a hang of how the Indian National Congress is working to besmirch the reputation of its political opponents. This method of shoot and scoot lying is something that the American electorate has got used to in their Presidential Elections. But for a nation like India, that is only known for hurling accusations at each other, this is something new.
Stories like the Rafale deal were built up by experts in the US and Europe, based on inputs from Eurofighter, the consortium that lost out to Dassault, the makers of Rafale
This method of political skullduggery stems from the presence of US experts in the war room of the Indian National Congress party in downtown Chicago. Here sits Satyanarayan Gangaram Pitroda or better known as Sam Pitroda with his team of consultants all of whom have understood the Indian political system like the back of their hand. These ‘consultants‘ are highly paid political hacks who know how to play dirty with no remorse or regret. They are akin to a highly paid group of mercenaries who are assigned to kill their target, with no questions asked. Bankrolled by Sam, who is the banker of 10 Janpath, these political assassins are looking through every move of the NDA government and then devise strategies to dirty the reputation of Modi Sarkar. If you believe that Rahul Gandhi is called Pappu for a reason, it’s deliberate to a fault. The Congress Party President is briefed by his strategy team every day and they coach him on what to say and when. Despite this level of preparedness, the blunders from the 50-year-old ‘young’ man persist, but they have covered up fast thanks to the pro-Congress media.
Their main weapon in the disinformation campaign is the Indian Media, which is forever ready to be bought over and write any trash they are asked to. A few months ago, many media moguls were invited and personally briefed by Sam and his team on how they would be compensated in millions. As you may be aware, the likes of Wire, Scroll, Quint, Print were in the past provided Rs.3.7 crores of funding by the Independent and Public Spirited Media Foundation, whose trustees include 10 Janpath acolytes like Ramachandra Guha and TN Ninan, editor of the loss-making Business Standard, which has turned anti Modi in the last three years News Channels like NDTV which are willing to sell their soul has been kept alive by mysterious advertising revenues, which is surprising for a channel that has hardly any TRP. Journalists like Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose, Shekar Gupta, Nidhi Razdan are paid their hafta based on the number of anti-Modi stories they peddle.
Stories like the Rafale deal were built up by experts in the US and Europe, based on inputs from Eurofighter, the consortium that lost out to Dassault, the makers of Rafale. A closer analysis of the chronological order of how the Rafale story was built up, shows a concerted attack from all flanks with leaks in media followed by Rahul Gandhi’s carefully scripted Press conferences and political rallies which are dutifully covered by journalists who are paid to write what Sam and his team wants. The war on Social Media is also controlled from Chicago, with Twitter and Facebook being paid millions to shadow block pro-BJP handles and even getting them banned. This could have been easily tackled by Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, but he miserably failed in taking these social media behemoths head-on. Let’s get this fact straight, Sam is a master strategist who pushes real hard, despite failing health due to three by-passes, four stents and is battling cancer.
What is surprising is that the strategists in BJP have miserably failed in reading through this shoot and scoot guerrilla attacks by Congress strategists. Either the media strategists BJP are all at sea or are totally incompetent in defending the party and the Prime Minister from this fusillade of negative news. BJP is kept relevant on Social Media by its huge army of unpaid volunteers who are doing a far better job than their official IT team in Delhi and those branched across the states. The sooner the party wakes up to the reality of the huge damage that Sam and his team are causing to Narendra Modiji and the party, the better it will be in salvaging the image of BJP in 2019.
As they say, all is fair in love and war. There are no sympathies for losers in today’s political battles and they will end up as epitaphs in tomorrow’s news. It’s time for BJP strategists to wake up and smell the coffee.
