Congress veterans seem to be working overtime to prevent the BJP from hijacking the nationalistic narrative dominating electorate's mindscapes post-Pulwama and IAF strikes in Pakistan.
A Congress Working Committee resolution recently expressed solidarity with the armed forces and accused PM Modi of exploiting national security to deflect attention from his failures on the governance front.
The Congress' plan is to pull the attention back on the BJP's "failures on jobs, agriculture, women's safety, national security and economy." Accordingly, the March 12 CWC resolution said, "The Congress party expresses its strong disappointment that the Prime Minister is cynically exploiting the issue of national security, on which we are all united, to divert attention from his colossal failures, bogus claims and persistent falsehoods."
The other Congress plank against the BJP is corruption, with the party determined to hammer Rahul Gandhi's "chowkidar chor hai" line despite BJP's massive counters. The PM recently prefixed "chowkidar" to his Twitter name so did all the Ministers.
PM even addressed watchmen across the country launching #Mai Bhi Chowkidar Twitter movement which Congress media strategists are challenging with #BJP Ke Sab Chowkidar Chor Hain hashtag.
Some anti-BJP slogans the Congress will likely to use are "Pehle lade the goron se; ab ladenge choron se"; and "Naa jawaanon ki, na kisaanon ki, BJP hai baeimanoon ki."
