Blog: The Dementia or Disarray of the Opposition
Since the well-orchestrated departure of the mini party, the MSM from the government all eyes have been focused on the MMM. In the eyes of the leader of the MMM and his close associates and more particularly in the mind of that particular section of the press that has been longing and praying for a return of Paul Berenger to power and even prime minister, the MMM holds the joker for the next elections.
But the most amusing and ridiculous aspect of the opposition action is how to fight the next elections. In the beginning after the MSM left the government the MMM was relishing the idea of a three-cornered fight in the belief that such a strategy would secure them power. Then the flirt with the MSM started. Ti frère (Pravind Jugnauth) who had been downgraded to petit crétin as long as he was serving in the government was upgraded back to ti frére and it seemed as if the deal of an MMM/MSM alliance had been clinched. Ti frére having been strengthened by his new status felt that Johnny (Paul Berenger) who by now reverted back to the status of bosom friend could not walk alone and needed the MSM to win power. So Pravind Jugnauth, aka petit cretin and petit frère became gargantuan and exacted the post of prime minister for five years. Ambition is the driving force of petit frère/crétin and not the interest of the country. This proposal sent a cold shower down the spine of the followers of the MMM and even some of the stalwarts of that party.
Matters stood there until we heard of a remake of the MMM/MSM alliance of 2000 led by Sir Anerood Jugnauth, the incumbent President of the Republic who would share the post of prime minister with Paul Berenger. Sir Anerood Jugnauth embarked on his campaign and openly criticised ICAC the government and the institutions of the country. He held two meetings with the leader of the MMM at State House and one with Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo who served as Minister of Finance with Sir Anerood Jugnauth between 1983 and 1990 until he was booted out as by 1990 Sir Anerood Jugnauth had again fallen in love with Paul Berenger. So the scene was all set up for an MMM/MSM alliance with the exit of petit frère/cretin as leader of the MSM. In Parliament petit frère/cretin even delivered a long discourse on how presidents come back as prime ministers and that Sir Anerood Jugnauth will rise to the occasion when required. Obviously Pravind Jugnauth (petit frère/cretin) was giving himself a certificate of incompetency as leader of the MSM and as somebody unworthy of sharing the post of prime minister with Paul Berenger if ever they became allies and if ever they won the lections.
But then matters changed again. Ashit Gungah in a press interview on 28/11/11 stated that it has never been the wish of Sir Anerood Jugnauth to resign. If that is so then how will the remake of 2000 materialise? There is more. Alan Ganoo the deputy leader of the MMM has made bold to state in the media on 28/11/11 that it would be more appropriate that the grands partis s'affrontent séparément aux législatives… If that is the case then where is the remake? Where is the come back of Sir Anerood Jugnauth? Alan Ganoo was also candid to say that many followers of the MMM and many within the party are not so keen on an alliance with the MSM. What Alan Ganoo failed to precise however was which grands partis he had in mind. Did he also have in mind the MSM as a grand parti. The question is pertinent and Alan Ganoo would no doubt give us an answer soon.
All this shows either a state of dementia on the side of the opposition or indicates that they are in disarray and that the MSM that the MMM believed was the magic wand that would lead them to power is just a mirage, … maya.
