Description

The book evolves a new and lucid approach to the ideology of the Congress, which has been presented as a theory of political thought, Congressism.

While there are numerous books on the history of the Indian National Congress, there is virtually no work on its ideology. A need for clear ideological elucidation has been accentuated due to the attempts by non-Congress political formations at redefining and obfuscating the tenets that the Congress has stood for. Deliberately, Secularism has been redefined as pseudo-secularism and any conception of a Welfare State or demands for poverty alleviation are dismissed as Marxism.

The book counters the attempts to dismiss the Congress as having no ideology and contends that those who do so are influenced from fear of exposure of the hollowness of their own ideologies.
