The Modi Movement


By B.K. Pathak

Ahmedabad, 18 December 2012

The Modi Movement

The mainstream media (MSM) seems to have an agenda-driven anxiety about who will be the Prime Ministerial candidate of the BJP in the next parliamentary elections. Although, the MSM has been asking this question for more than a couple of years, the BJP has to prepare itself for the media onslaught of these types of questions immediately after the results of Gujarat elections on December 20. While there is hardly any doubt about who will win Gujarat elections, regardless of who wins it, the MSM will try to leverage the election results to fulfill its agenda. The immediate agenda is very clear. The MSM wants to build up the perception that Mr. Narendra Modi will be the Prime Ministerial candidate for the 2014 parliamentary elections. This will help the Congress party not only in maintaining the current structure of the UPA, but may also help in making sure that the BJP’s previous alliance partners including Trinamool Congres , Biju Janta Dal, and Bahujan Samaj Party, do not rejoin BJP. More importantly, the Congress may be able to create an alliance, even loosely so, with the Janta Dal United and other NDA partners, if BJP announces Mr. Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate. It is interesting to note here that just one month before Gujarat elections, the AICC General Secretary Mr. Rahul Gandhi formed a sub-committee, under the leadership of Mr. AK Antony, to look after the pre-poll alliances!

While the short term agenda is to build a platform to strengthen the UPA and weaken the NDA, the long term agenda is to consolidate the minority vote bank through scare tactics. In 2009, the Congress party was able to consolidate this vote bank after continuous fear mongering by the MSM which used Mr. Varun Gandhi and Mr. Narendra Modi as the BJP mascots. Historically, the Congress has been successful with these tactics because the BJP’s traditional vote bank of the nationalist Indians is fragmented.

BJP’s Golden Period

The BJP has to introspect very carefully. From 1989 to 1999, BJP’s golden period, the BJP increased its own tally from around 85 to 182 and even formed the stable government in 1999. The unusual success of the BJP during this period could be attributed to two factors. First, the Ayodhya movement helped the BJP in consolidating traditionally fragmented Hindu votes during the first half of the 1990s. Although successful, the BJP could not form the government during this period because it did not have enough numbers of its own. In 1999, the BJP could form strong alliances across different political parties because of the great leadership of Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee. While the Ayodhya effect was able to consolidate Hindu vote banks, Mr. Vajpayee could consolidate traditionally anti-Congress political parties and formed a strong National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Unfortunately, in the absence of Ayodhya like movement, Vajpayee like leader, and ageing Advani, the BJP has been struggling for the last few years to position itself.

BJP’s Dilemma

When faced with the question about the Prime Ministerial candidate in 2014, the BJP seems to be in a dilemma. Should it declare the candidate? If yes, should that candidate be declared before election or after election? Who should be the candidate? Some of the BJP leaders, including Mrs. Sushma Swaraj, recently concluded that in these days of coalition based ruling, they are not in favor of declaring the Prime Ministerial candidate before election. Some others might be waiting for the results of the Gujarat elections and believe that if Mr. Modi single handedly achieves landslide victory in Gujarat, then he should be brought to the national level and eventually declared as the Prime Ministerial candidate.

Politics of Performance Vs. Politics of Promises

Should Gujarat election results matter? Regardless of the results, Mr. Modi has proved his worth with the grand scale contributions towards Gujarat’s development. Indeed, Mr. Modi is once in a lifetime leader. He has been a source of inspiration to millions of youths in India. He is the only hope that India could take a quantum jump in development. For the decades, we have been complaining about the problems related to bureaucracy, corruption, homeland security, and foreign policy. Mr. Modi is the only politician who has successfully addressed some of these issues and has clear and grand vision for India. While other politicians have won the elections based on sadak-bijli-paani based promises, Mr. Modi has won the elections based on his performance in sadak-bijli-paani.

Why Modi?

While I believe that Mr. Modi will get historical victory in Gujarat, regardless of the results, without any inhibitions and at the time of its own choice, the BJP must declare Mr. Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate. Doing so will undoubtedly take BJP back into its golden era. Just like the Ayodhya movement helped consolidating Hindu votes, Mr. Modi, as the Prime Ministerial candidate will help in consolidating the nationalist development based votes. In this sense, Mr. Modi is BJP’s Ram Mandir for the 2014 elections. The BJP does not have Mr. Vajpayee who could help in forming an alliance with the other parties, but Modi movement will work as good as , if not better than, the Ayodhya movement in consolidating the nationalist votes. Moreover, the nation needs Mr. Modi and not Mr. Vajpayee today. The Vajpayee-era NDA included pseudo-secularist parties like Lok Janshakti Party and DMK which diluted BJP’s image, message, and functioning. The nation also does not need Agra Summits, Sada-e-Sarhad, or visits to Minar-e-Pakistan. The nation deserves a nationalist party with a clear majority and the leader with the full commitment who can make tough decisions.

The Modi Movement

The BJP must declare Mr. Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate for the 2014 parliamentary elections. Let the MSM and the Congress play games and get the prize catch of Mr. Nitish Kumar. Removal of such pseudo-secular weeds from the BJP will result in the purest form of the BJP. It will be blessing in disguise for the BJP. With the Modi movement consolidating all the nationalist votes, the BJP will barely need to convince any alliance partners. Mr. Modi will be able to take BJP’s electoral seats beyond 200 and various political parties will come seeking their place in the NDA. Just like their other tactics, the MSM’s agenda of alienating the BJP will fall flat. If the BJP declares Mr. Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate and he does not get elected, historians will attribute this misfortune to the bad choice made by the people. If the BJP does not declare Mr. Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate, such misfortune will be attributed to the BJP.

My humble request to the BJP is to please fulfill the wish of the MSM and declare Mr. Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate to initiate the Modimovement.

    World from My mouth. Solute!. He will surely turn the dream of country in reality. No one can stop him now except himself.

  2. BRAHMPUTTRA says:

    I agree. But, still it is not time to declare him PM candidate. Let Modi go full blast in Gujarat and lay his infrastructure of party cadre all over the nation, at least in Maharashtra, Rajsthan, MP, Bihar, Zarkhand, HP, UP at the same level as Gujarat is. Now is the time where people will listen to him.

    Modi needs to define nationalism and Bharat ki Asmita and pull the entire nation just as Chankya did it more than 2000 years ago. Let this lion roar and kick all anti nationalist foe out of country.

    • KANT says:

      @ My friend, I agree with you 100 %……PEOPLE without NATIONAL PRIDE will become slaves…
      THIS is strategy of CONGRESS party with ENGLISH MEDIA…..

      BECAUSE of so many so called smart LITERATE IDIOTS, We have foreign born woman ruling nation….I hate that so much that I have no words to describe that….

      MR. MODIJI has given some hope for that we have tremendous power in the nation to become SUPER POWER….. MOST people do not know the HISTORY of NEHRU family and I will just say we got FOOLED for last 60 plus years….. JAY HIND….

  3. PA says:

    Before 2014 elections, Modi will be moved to Delhi. Saurabh Patel or Anandi Patel will be next CM ( as you can see these two were only ministers given safe seats. Rest of Cabinet fighting on own.). Amit shah cannot get over legal trouble in one year. Modi will leave Gujarat making sure his successor follows his tune and does not goof up on Modi agenda. He will watch over his kingdom from far away.
    As to Nitish of Bihar, he will have to save his government or Call lalu & Sonia for help. If Congress ship is sinking, Nitin will have no choice.
    Biju Patnaik of Odisha Joined BJP before and will not hesitate again if he sees laddu in his hand. Mamata of W. Bengal is at odds with Congress now and had joined BJP before. She is a political actress. She picks up best suitable scripts, roles and heros.
    Lalita of Tamilnadu can be a sure bet with Modi.
    Before all these, BJP needs to build the base. There are 200 seats that BJP does not have the base (though Congress is in same boat). So these local satraps will be waiting & watching which way the water is flowing. For thousands of years, India was ever divided by local kingdoms. English knew this and used it for own advantage. Now it is up to Modi. Indians also follow charismatic leader in hordes. Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Indira are recent examples.

  4. Indian says:

    How naive is it to think that the country will change because of one individual.

    A country changes not when somebody becomes the PM, or the CM. But when people change.

    With the existing BJP’s political culture we cannot expect much even if Modi becomes the PM.

    This is evident from this fact- we are talking about BJP “declaring” somebody as the PM candidate, but not being elected through a primary. And the so called leader capable of changing the country is at the mercy of BJP leadership to be chosen as the PM candidate.

    • Ram says:

      Before Modi can be declared PM candidate, he should be made the president of BJP. Modi is a great leader with excellent organizational and administrative ability which BJP needs for a long time. After his success in Gujarat, lower level party cadres are looking at him to take the lead. Charging him the reins of party along with the responsibility of 2014 LS elections, will further increase the morale of party workers. Modi is also a great strategist as far as elections are concerned, that combined with entire party cadres falling behind him will have the desired effect.

      Many experienced BJP leaders will be miffed at the rise of Modi but they will have no option but to fall back in line given the pressure from lower cadres. If this does not happens, then BJP will be doing a great disservice to organization and, more importantly, to the nation.

      Declaring him as PM candidate will be counter productive unless he has full control of party. Declaring Modi as PM candidate may even work for the advantage of Modi’s detractors in the party as they will blame him for defeat in 2014 elections and hence will kill the momentum he has gained in past decade. And if he fails 2014 (which he likely will unless made president of BJP) there will be no room for him in Gujarat politics as well.

    • Jadu says:

      Yes it is as naive as to think one person gave us independence. As you yourself said that country can not be changed by one person unless all the people change. Do you see there are some persons in reality in past, present and future, who can change people, who can influence people’s lives? Modi is one such person.

  5. Dharmesh says:

    This is one of the best analysis I have read in recent past after Ravinar the mediacrooks.
    Well as everything well said I hope morons at helm of BJP read this and act accordingly.
    Fact of the matter for todays BJP is, take Narendra Modi out of it and it is same as congress (as said by Ravinar)

  6. KSV SUBRAMANIAN says:

    The Modi Magic works well. There is no doubt about it. It is high time to dissolve NDA and BJP charter its own course. The secularists have no compunction in having an alliance with the likes of Muslim League and Kerala Congress, MIM etc., etc., and still call BJP communal. So be it. We have enough of this communal, divisive party who masquerade as secular

    Nationalists Indians were on a long wait for a true leader. They have found The Leader in Shri Modi. No appeasement. No bowing down to rank communalists. No vote bank politics. No free entry to aliens like Bangladeshis and Pakistanis in India by playing vote bank politics. No minority, majority but only Indians first and Indians last. Only aim is welfare of all people irrespective of caste, creed or religion. That is what we want. We don’t want distribution of poverty. We don’t want any one stashing away our wealth in Swiss banks by corrupt means. We want development and prosperity for all.

    Shri Modiji has shown the way. Let BJP declare Shri Modiji as the Prime Ministerial Candidate for a better future for India and its citizens.

  7. Svusa says:

    Japanbhai,

    Nice write up, I agree that nation doesn’t have another leader like Modi. At the same time, other national BJP leaders wouldn’t accept Modi as PM of India. Modi can polarize voters and even if development politics works congress will not miss chance to bring back 2002 riots. This can deflect failures of congress in last 5 years.

    Over all, just like Sardar Patel was most able to lead nation, Modi will go in history as best leader of morden India.

  8. Pankaj Shah says:

    Very True, If BJP wants to survive then they should declare Modi as Prime Ministerial candidate or otherwise BJP is a dead party and may be regional party in some states. Today’s youth needs results and not just promises like BJP did during Ram Janmabhoomi movement. They should have given up the government for Ram Janamabhoomi but greed for power did not allow them to come to power the second time. It is a time for realisation and declaring Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate.

  9. HP says:

    well said at large… BJP as party should stand at the expectation of the people, which arose in 1980s but went into drain due to non-focused and compromising attitude of BJP leaders since mid 1990s… Ayodhya meant Mandir, which meant Bharatiya identity, true secularism which is Hindutva or being Hindu itself. Otherwise, who is Hindu? Vaisnav or Shaiv or Jain or Sikh or Buddhist, etc. who was called Hindu? why should some of these sects/communities/castes only retain a title given by outsiders to all people living in the subcontinent? In true scenario, whoever has roots in Bharat or say India, any sect, even Parsi (present) and also converted muslims/christians are Hindus. Why to break society by wrong notions developed by pseudo-liberal/seculars?

    BJP should come clean and must also be ready for certain initial losses, but if it stands on its ideology and delivers at State level, Gujarat or Karnataka or MP or ?Himachal? etc., BJP can create history by crossing two-third majority on its own.

    Modi, if retains his so-called authoritarian or non-compromising attitude, and hammers the development agenda at national level, no one can stop him in “long run” (condition apply -> “NO” to Vajpayee’s compromising policy).

  10. Dent says:

    Anandiben is better in organization and saurabh patel is MBA graduate from US who is better with administration.

    Vijay rupani,vajubhai and many other will continue as organizational cedre i think.

    Amit shah will move with modi since he is exceptionally gifted strategist as modi. They both can lure mulayam in UP with atleast getting 10-15 seat and that is great.

    Mamta is going to join but BJP will not need her. Since BJP will have wide option of BJD,Jaylalitha, jagmohan reddy(andhra),akali dal.

    Namo has never accepted defeat in life and i am sure he will set very high target to achive full majority. The higher the target the higher the seat he can get(like in gujarat he set 150 and get 125).

  11. NANU NMEHTA says:

    Last night i saw the debate by that NDTV BITCH BARKHA TO repeatedly trying to provoke communal card to malign narendrabhai.Suketu Mehta just imported from abrod was so foolish to play her card along with other so called secular idiots.Otherday also i saw one such RASCAL HEMANT SHAH,DARSHINI MAHADEVIA again playing the same communal card .NDTV/TIMESNOW are 2 channels constantly propagating anti Narendra messges.

  12. Indi says:

    “A bird in hand, worth two on trees”. A bird in hand here is Gujarat. If Mr. Modi has to ever move to National Politics as PM candidate, he should be pretty sure of his party leaders’ support. Since he would face many challenges from outside his party and if the same thing happens from inside can spoil both the game.

  13. Vishal says:

    Congress walo , ‘Ghar nu Ghar’ Scheme me se kuch ghar apne liye rakh lena , 20Dec ko chupne ke liye jagah kam padegi tumhe.

    Hira ba , tamaro su putra 100% CM and 2014 ma PM banse .

    Jay Garvi Gujarat

  14. Kes says:

    I hope BJP wins in Gujarat, but Modi does not become CM.

    He should immediately move to the Center and take charge of 2014 preparations so that people like us in other states can have him as PM in 2014.

  15. Freedune says:

    It is quite possible that the Congress will start a ‘Build Ram Temple / Vacate Kashi-Mathura’ movement covertly by bribing some VHP leaders soon. The idea would be to create a difficult situation for the BJP – if it takes a pro-hardcore Hindutva stage, media can cry blue murder and consolidate minority votes in opposition to it, and if it takes a soft approach, VHP can be used to stir up passions at the same time as calling BJP/Modi power hungry hypocrites.

    Let us watch the developments.

  16. Amit Karia says:

    Comment from rediff

    Why Modi is different from Shiela Dixit or Nitish kumar or for that matter Mr Patnaik? This is always cited by these self styled social activists, psephologists and what not? They must be given the answer that Modi wins despite hatreed narrative ebing given by these people 24 by 7 for 10 long years. Other leaders do not have to go through that. And that is what makes him stand apart.

  17. Raghu says:

    I completely agree with the post. Contrary to public perception Mr.Modi at the helm will attract fringe parties towards NDA. Shri Modi’s concentration on development has surely struck a strong chord with the youth. For eg, in Tamilnadu BJP has no base and but Shri Modi has a gr8 following.

  18. vivek iyer says:

    more media and congress play the communal card more i will benefit modiji ..BJP just has to regains some lost ground in UP and thats it and it can only do so if Modiji is projected because in UP thhere is a hindu polarization but no leader o encash it secondly Modiji has a very good personal rapport with Jaya and Naveen patnaik both AIADMK and BJD have been out of power from the center for atleast a decade now and they need better support to work for their respective states .AIADMK and BJD in total will get atleast 40-45 seats so there goes nitish kumar in the dust bin …if we cross 180 our government will form under modiji . JDU will fall in line automatically after the results .

  19. nikhil says:

    yes..you are saying is 100% right.but BJP has no power to declare PM candidate of BJP,,
    It is power in hand with RSS…if RSS want Narendra Modi to became PM then and then only it is possible. so first requite to RSS..because BJP high commend has no power to do so…only and only RSS can do this..
    but i think RSS not want to Namrendra Modi to be PM..
    they want complete control on BJP ,and also on Narendra Modi..and Modi never let them to do on him..

  20. BAPTY.S says:

    SHRI JAPAN BHAI GOOD ARICE BY SHRI PATHAK. MY COMMENTS AS FOLLOWS.MANY NICE COMMENTS MADE ABOVE.
    1.RSS OR 135 YR OLD CONGRESS OR THE NEW EMERGENT & YOUNGEST BJP OR ANY OTHER REGIONAL PARTIES, “NONE HAVE THE ALTERNATIVE TO SHRI NARENDRA DAMODARDASS MODIJI” YES HE BELONGS TO RSS, THE SANGH & OFCOURSE THE BJP.I FEEL GOD HAS SENT HIM TO US (INDIANS) THRU 6 CR GUJARATIS.,TO SAVE OUR BHARAT .
    2.HE IS THE ONLY TRUE DESH BAKHT, A VISIONARY WHO LOVES HIS DHARTI CALLED BHARAT & ITS PEOPLE. “THE INCORRUPTIBLE MODIJI”.
    3.RSS, BJP HQ DELHI ETC ARE ALL SECONDARY.PRIMARY RESPONSIBILTY OF 1.35 BIILION INDIANS IS TO SAFE GUARD MOTHER INDIA BY ELECTING ,THE MOST HONEST, DEVOTED DESH BAKHT, WHO CAN DELIVER WHAT THE NATION WANTS.
    4.IT IS NONE ELSE BUT THE ONE & ONLY SHRI MODIJI.
    ENDLESS & MEANINGLESS TV DEBATES BY “SO CALLED HALF BAKED POLITICAL PANDITS, BOTH HE & SHE, SITTING AROUND IN TV STUDIOS MAKING VERY STUPID MEANINGLES COMMENTS,AIDED BY EX PSEPHOLOGISTS, WHO HAVE SUDDENLY BECOME POLITICIANS WHO THINK & IMAGINE THEY ARE VERY ARTICULATE ON COMMENTING ABOUT GUJARAT & SHRI MODIJI.
    5.YOU CAN SEE IN THEIR FACES AND TALK THEY ARE SO UPSET & HAVE TO GULP THEIR HATE WORDS AGAINST MODIJI WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN SPITTING FOR 10 YRS OR MORE.
    6. THERE IS ORGANISED PLANNING AS WHY SHRI MODIJI IS NOT MATURE ENOUGH LIKE A ATALJI, OR ACCEPTABLE TO SO CALLED MINORITIES, & TO ALLIES PARTNERS, & HOW INDIA IS DIFF FROM GUJARAT, ETC ETC. THESE ARE SUSTAINED CAMPAIGNS IMAGINING INDIAN MASSES ARE FOOLS, BUT ENGLISH SCHOOLS EDUCATED SUCH PANDITS FRONM BIG CITIES THINK THEY ARE THE ONES WHO KNOW WHO SHLD BE PM, WHCIH PARTY SHLD RULE INDIA, ETC ETC.
    7 FOR THEM ,A MMS, SONIA, OR RAHUL OR VADRA IS OK AS P.M , BUT NOT SHRI MODIJI. DR SWAPAN DASGUPTA SPEAKS VERY WELL DEFENDING SHRI MODIJI.

    IN MY VIEW A SUSTAINED CAMPAIGN ,THAT MODIJI & MODIJI ALONE SHLD & CAN BE INDIAS P.M SHLD BE STARTED.LET THERE BE MANY OPEN DEBATES, NO PROBLEM. THE 6 CR GUJARATIS INCLUDING MANY MANY YOUNG MUSLIMS HAVE ALL ENDORSED MODIJI WITH DOUBLE VIGOUR.THIS JUST NEEDS TO SPREAD TO MAJOR STATES IN INDIA. I AM VERY CONFIDENT MODIJI IS FULLY ACCEPTABLE ALREADY IN WHOLE OF WESTERN INDIA.( FOUR STATES). HE WILL BE WELL ACCEPTED IN U.P & BIHAR,CHATTISGARGH, JAHARKHAND WHICH HE KNOWS WELL.

    MAAMATAJI CAN EASILY BE BROUGHT AROUND, SHRI NAVEEN BJD WILL JOIN IN. ASSAM WILL NEED SOME COAXING. THAT LEAVES SOUTH. I FEEL WITH PEOPLE LIKE NIRMALA SEETHARAMAN, VENKAIAH NAIDU, GVL RAO, ETC SHRI MODIJI CAN LEARN SOME TAMIL & TELUGU. TO ADDRESS THE PUBLIC.

    MY FRIENDS SORRY FOR LONG COMMENTS. MORE AS WE GO ON.

    I AWAIT THE DAY SHRI NAMOJI WILL BE TAKING OATH AS P.M OF INDIA. JAY JAY BHARAT MATA, GARVI GUJ. JAY JAY SHRI NAMOJI, THANK YOU.

    i,think this is one of the best artical.now this is not the time to think hindutva,ram-mandir,aliance,etc.
    if you see the analysis of gujarat voteing,he got the maximum votes acroos the party,caste,creed,religion and fundamentalism.
    if you see the voteing,he got the maximum votes across the age-bar.youth,women and educated love him.his hang out,3-d techanology,his website,twitter and so,many latest info.tech.maximum usage made him not only in india but in the world as stallwarts.
    millions of young and other people follow him everyday on his site.whereever you go,
    all the young has full faith in modiji.
    no,matter whatever msm,does the trick,no,matter the sallow politicians and party play the dirty games,one thing sure that now people as a whole wants some one who can lead the country with vision,development,desh-bhakti and strong handed.
    nation needs the leader who understands of each regions in and out.so,i,agree with this fantastic editorial and wish that bjp declares modiji as soon as possible.
    as we see in parst and recent voteing,we can tell easily that people showed tremondous
    maturity in voteing.once the youth will come out bravely and openly in the favor of modiji and will,there is no any other source who can stop his climbing-up journey.once the wind will start in the favor of him,automatically other will sit in that boat.one thing they have to make sure with the calculation,that modi’s magic can bring 190 to 200 seats on his own marrit.

    i,am pretty sure will happen.i,told long time ago when people were not able to think,
    “MODIJI IS KUDARAT NIRMAN TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY,NO,BODY IS GOING TO STOP,NO,MATTER HOW THE OTHERS MAKE EVRY STONE UNTURNED TO STOP.MAA AMBA NA ASIRVAD THI SARJAYEL SGAKTI-SHALI,BAHRAT NO BHAGYA VIDHATA CHHE.”as it is said in editorial if we will miss this than it is misfortune of the nation,not modiji.

    Modi will be declared as PM candidate on 12th January 2012 – on the 150th anniversary of

  23. pravendra patel says:

    Modi has karishma and energy level which bring people to election booth. bjp does not need help from outside. If he can made possible 70% voting in gujarat. He will brings all youths of india to bring on election booth make 70% voting in entire india possible. Until now only minority, poor peoples voting in election, but majority working class, middle class does not have time or interest in voting because they knew why vast my important time for voting. Thus more percentage of voting help modi and as well as india. the next election should be fight with internet and cellphone to charge young indian.

    bjp has weakness that is UP, bihar, w.bangal, andhra,maharastra and tamilnadu these state send majority mp’s to the delhi and bjp is very weak in almost above state. bjp must focus in UP, bihar and maharastra and gain maximum MP’s.

  24. gujjubhai says:

    Where is Gadkari hiding. We heard about all major BJP political leaders coming into picture of Gujarat elections as if he is not at all interested in the Gujarat Elections which is major state of BJP. I really believe Gadkari is the main reason BJP is falling apart. If we have Modi or Sushma Swaraj as head then it could be different Scenario. Sushma Swaraj is the best bet I believe to keep so called “Secular” alliance. Also, she can influence women sections (poor class from rest of the country) which are now influenced by Sonia. Moreover, she is very effective orator. I think Sonia V/S Sushma. If BJP come to Power then Sushma PM and Modi Home Minister or Finance as who can have better finance knowledge than Gujarati!!

    • Dharmesh says:

      Idiots like Motu have done unrepairable damage to BJP by Moronically appearing
      For interviews befor IBN and NDTV. And MSM (read congress) have made maximum out of those
      Interviews. He was not able to consolidate even single thing in his 2 years as Pres. Apathy is, he is still
      continuing. First thing BJP should do is, sack Gadakri, get Smriti Irani or Ravishankar Prasad
      As Pres

  25. Eternal says:

    While lot of us have absolute faith in Modi’s ability to deliver results, there are still valid questions raised regarding his performance. No matter how you cut the data, growth in Gujarat’s GDP is not very different from that of comparable states like Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. Hence, Modi bashers question how can one claim Modi is best performer when economic growth indicators under his regime are not very different from other states. Further, many other states have done better than Gujarat in terms of reducing infant mortality and increasing literacy. Despite being Modi fan, I must admit these are valid questions.

    I believe that in past 10 years Modi has spent lot of resources and efforts on building high quality roads, building port infrastructure and get enough electricity. With Maruti and Ford starting their operations in next couple of years, the real growth is yet to come. While Gujarat did grow prior to Modi, that growth was with lack of vision. Chemical industries mainly resulted in industrialization of Gujarat but at the same time made Gujarat cities one of the most polluted cities of India. On the contrary, Modi has focused on auto industry which is much better than chemical industry.

    However, there are many areas where Modi has barely scratched the surface. For example, traffic management in Gujarat is not better than any other major city of India. Despite all the development, you cann’t compare Ahmedabad with cities of many other developing countries. You still find potholes, dogs, cows, garbage and encroachment on Ahmedabad roads. I strongly believe that Modi will be able to turn face of Gujarat in next 5 years, but in past 10 years, at least statistically speaking, his performance is only comparable to states like Maha and TN. So it is difficult to argue and convince entire India to vote purely on his merits.

    My suggestion to BJP for upcoming elections is to project Modi as one of the PM candidates. If BJP loses election, anti Modi media won’t be able to put entire blame on Modi. Also, BJP will realize that they will need to do something drastic next time to win the elections (which will mean announce Modi as PM candidate). If BJP wins, depending upon margin of win, they can give very important post to Modi and let him prove his credentials to entire country which will set stage for his candidature for PM post in future.

    Of course my suggestion does mean Modi and us Indians will have to wait little longer, but this will at least ensure that when Modi gets elected it will be with heavy majority and hence no reliance on coalition partners.
