The Jhagada Dals

T. H. Chowdary
back
The Janata Dal was a combination of casteist groups in more or less all the states where it functioned. Since its theology is social justice and since it is a combination of different castes, some of which are in mutual opposition, the various leaders and their followers have not been able to be together for long. They had been splintering into various Dals – Rashtriya Janata Dal, Janata Dal (United),  Janata Dal (Secular), Biju Janata Dal, Rashtriya Janata Dal,  Indian National  Lok Dal, Samajwadi Party (SP) and so on.

They are in fact Jagada (quarreling) Dals. It is aptly said that they can neither remain united for long nor can remain separated for long. It is in fulfillment of this fact that  the various Jagada Dals of the original Janata Party founded by Jayaprakash Narayan are once again trying to come together this time to fight the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). These Jagada Dals are disintegrative of Indian society and the nation. Competing with one another and with Congress and BJP in the name of secularism and social justice, they are splintering Indian society – Hindus as well as Muslims. This is promoting strife and not harmony. Intellectuals have a duty to expose the Jagada Dals as disintegrators of Indian society nation.
