The Italian-born Antonia Maino-led Congress is in deep distress. It appears that the Modi
wave tsunami is threatening to smash them to bits and drown the remains. (Previously I had written about the Modi juggernaut.) What are the options open to them? Here is my conjecture.
First is of course if Shri Modi were to meet with an unfortunate accident. Helicopters don’t usually drop out of the sky but in banana republics, aviation accidents are often used to settle political conflicts. Examples: Sanjay Gandhi, YSR Reddy.
Second, some disgruntled jihadis (ok, all jihadis are disgruntled) would plant a bomb at one of the many rallies. A huge boom and that would take care of Maino’s troubles.
Third, Maino makes a deal with Pakistan. For an undisclosed amount and for future concessions if the Italian-Indian Raul Vinci aka Rahul Gandhi were to become the PM, Sharif would start a minor war with India in early April. Then the appointed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would declare “Emergency” and the elections would be postponed. This will give the Italian-Indian Congress some breathing room and allow more time for scenarios 1 and 2 above.
Now you may say that all this is tin-foil hat level crazy conspiracy. I hope it is only my natural paranoia. But what if it isn’t all that crazy a scenario? How does one guard against it?
The way forward is to put this crazy conspiracy in the public domain so that it becomes common knowledge — and thus render the tactic worthless.
