Rogue’s Gallery #1 – Indian National Congress


The Indian National Congress is one of two major parties in India, founded by Britisher A.O. Hume, with Dadabhai Naoroji and Dinshaw Wacha in tow in December 28, 1885. After Independence (AND Partition) in 1947, it became the dominant party in India, installing seven Congress Prime Ministers (including Jawaharlal Nehru (1947–64), and the most recent being Manmohan Singh (2004–14)). The party’s positioning is socialist, center-left in Indian politics.

The ideas behind the party included helping all who work for the national good (i.e., British good) to meet each other and to network with each other over the political operations during the year. You have to remember that this Congress party worked hand-in-hand with the Crown with the view of divine dispensation of British rule and its belief of western liberalism and justice. Today, you will see that the British was successful in building in a permanent love for the White in Congress. A great example is Sonia Gandhi and her cohort. Stay tuned for Sonia Gandhi – she will be in the Rogue’s Gallery in the future.
