What is the famous 'Kamaraj Plan' of politics? On the lines of which Mamta can get the resignation of the entire cabinet
All is not well within the Trinamool Congress led by Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Mamata Banerjee is one of the few current Indian politicians who have grown up in a very middle-class family and grew up in grassroots movements. When Banerjee left the Congress and formed the Trinamool Congress, some of her close allies were also involved. Partha Chatterjee was one of Banerjee's most trusted warlords from the beginning. Mamta Banerjee calls only a few leaders by her name, Chatterjee was one such leader whom Mamta used to call "da", abbreviated to Dada (elder brother). But now Banerjee is in a difficult position. His party is in trouble over the alleged corruption case. The news is coming that after Parth, other TMC leaders are also under the scanner of central agencies. In such a situation, now the biggest question is what will Mamta Banerjee do?
According to political experts, Mamta Banerjee can get the resignation of the entire cabinet along the lines of the Kamaraj plan. However, these are still unconfirmed reports quoting media sources. But it is being argued that ministers who have doubts or even small allegations of corruption. They can be blamed. There is also a possibility that the entire cabinet may resign on its own. Then Mamta should form the cabinet afresh.
What was the Kamaraj plan of Congress?
The general election of the year 1962 in which the Congress once again achieved historic success and the reins of the country were once again in the hands of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. But after some time there was a war between India and China. India had lost a lot in this war that lasted for a month. 1383 soldiers of the Indian Army were martyred. 1696 The soldiers were not traced and four thousand soldiers had to face the torture of becoming prisoners of war. The popularity of Pandit Nehru and the Congress party declined significantly and the result was that the Congress, which recorded a historic 62 in 62, lost 3 Lok Sabha by-elections a year later. Kamaraj did that which is difficult to even think about today. Kamaraj himself had resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu state and after his resignation six Union Ministers and Chief Ministers of several states had to leave the chair and work in the party. This plan to leave the post and work at the party is called '
The aim was to remove the greed for power.
The objective of the Kamaraj Plan was primarily to remove the greed for power from within the minds of the people of the Congress Party and in its place to inculcate a dedicated attachment to the objectives and policies of the organization. Nehru liked this suggestion of his. Nehru asked to send the proposal of this plan to the working committee. The CWC passed this resolution and as soon as it came into force, 6 Chief Ministers and 6 Union Ministers had to resign. Under the Maraj plan, 6 union ministers also had to resign, including veteran names like Lal Bahadur Shastri, Morarji Desai, and Babu Jagjivan Ram. A few days later, Kamaraj was elected the President of the Indian National Congress on 9 October 1963.
