From last several days we are witnessing an enormous variety of essays and articles written against BJP’s big shot Narendra Modi and one in every of the forerunner for PM’s race(may be leading one). Writers are busy in making portraits of this mass leader in their own way and the problem is that most of the people are trying to make people think as that suits them. He is one man who has now risen above all leaders in his line by the virtues of his administrative skills and mass leadership. I don’t think anybody has doubt that he is miles better than our current PM in all told terms.
Some writers have problems with the comments made by Modi on Gujarat’s development. But the truth is he never claimed that he had made everything perfect in Gujarat and he never claimed that this happening owes to him solely. But however he claims that it’s happening apace within the BJP’s operating amount, governance is way improved in his tenure and I think he is right additionally. He won state election with flying colours consecutively third time. We never witnessed any case where he promised TV’s, Mixers, Laptops etc. to voters in election but we have witnessed such guarantees in almost all latest state elections.
Even when Modi delivered lecture in SRCC last month, individuals were so captivated with their set of minds that they were solely looking at the few students who were shouting against him outside the SRCC campus but they were so blind to saw the massive variety of people who were cheering for him. People should understand one thing that while delivering his lecture in SRCC, he was live on all national 24 news channels however it had been a standard occasion for a CM of a state coming to metropolis and delivering a standard lecture. What made these TV channels to point out the continuing lecture everywhere in India, I suppose viewers. On that day most of the facebook statuses were also pointing towards that lecture. Being in one of the most prestigious institute of India, I even have witnessed plenty of dialogue occurring on this subject round the field among several brightest students. In my observation the most important power of Modi’s influence is the mouth promotional material done by the individuals. I even have seen that most of the issues in the country got solved virtually by just protruding him the next Prime Minister of India.
It is the impression of his personality only, that even people sitting on quasi-judicial and statutory posts are also coming forward to produce political advices. That is a different story that individuals whereas creating comments on HDI forgot to mention similar things about alternative state governments and additionally concerning centre. They forgot to require reference from Sachar Committee report on minorities to possess a glance at conditions of Minorities in West Bengal, where Congress, TMC and Left front is a lot active than BJP. Affirmative it’s true that in some places conditions of minorities don’t seem to be good and that is not a good news. Steps should be taken for their upliftment beause it is a serious concern.
I think writers for the sake of writing keep on telling that Muslims are not voting for Modi in Gujarat. And they don’t even desire to trust Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind general secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani . To one of the private news channels Mr. Madani revealed1 “In Gujarat, Jamiat workers on the ground have told me that in several assembly segments, Muslims voted for Modi. There is a perceptible change and circumstances are different now”. He also added, “Some Muslims have indeed voted for Modi primarily for two reasons â€” fear and that the alternative is not good enough either.” I think while making comment these wannabe secular (wannabe secular people are more dangerous than non-secular people) people should additionally browse the complete interview.
In a recent article Rohit Pradhan writes, “India can survive poor governance for the next few years but what it cannot survive is the further estrangement of its Muslim minority “. Well, in my opinion India can not survive for a single day in such condition. I do not understand what’s the premise of his study and analysis that created him to assume that if Modi is going to be the PM a war between Hindu’s and Muslim’s will break. Author has created associate illusion so fabulously that he additionally forecasted the longer term. But it didn’t happen in last five years in Gujarat, everything is fine there. But yes he is right in one front that we have witnessed poor governance in last five years in central government. Better governance is a must for the country in current situation; we cannot collaborate with such loots and scams anymore. No need to mention the magnitude of scams, as I believe recently ‘scam’ is the most detected word in India.
I remember all leading dailies like The New York Times, Washington Post, Time, The Telegraph and Pakistan papers wrote on Gujarat polls and Modi2. The “charismatic leader” was described as the “frontrunner” for the prime ministerial post. “The polarising figure inched closer to becoming the leading political challenger to India’s dominant Gandhi family,” as noted by the New York Times. The opposition parties (including Congress) got so high when they saw Modi on the cover page of time magazine with title ‘Modi means Business’ (march 26 issue,2012)2. But he was there because of his achievements in good governance.3 4
We are therefore so uninterested in the spat, overblown politicians and their greedy associates, the large family line rulers, the private corporation of politics and also the scams and schemes managed by them. Individuals of debatable backgrounds are projected as celebrities and people with dubious motives are lauded as activists. Separatists of all kinds, who brazenly preach and expand sedition get away with open threats and also get rewarded with free coverage of their freedom of expression.
But we do have to make a decision and as a fact this is the best option we have in present situation. Narendra Modi is BJP’s superstar and his name itself would be half the battle won. There are many other things also for instance, the magnitude of voices asking Modi be crowned prime minister is mounting high. Modi has so far maintained a dead silence on the subject. But I believe each action of his indicates that he’s manoeuvring himself to some extent wherever ignoring him for the task would be terribly difficult.
In my knowledge conclusion is that Modi’s governance is better than UPA’s governance – because in all the areas Modi easily outplays UPA which has more power than him and overall Moditva undoubtedly outplays the UPA government.
