Why all this hype over Modi?

Saturday, October 06, 2012
Press and electronic media seem to have been obsessed with Narendra Modi. They seem to be deriving pleasure by setting Modi against Sonia and Rahul.

Really speaking the comparison is not at all correct. Sonia and Rahul are not an intelligent politicians. Even they know about it. That may be the main reason as to why Sonia declined to become the Prime Minister when opportunity was knocking at her door. The credit should go to her that she had given one of the best Prime Ministers in Manmohan Singh but alas!, he let her down thoroughly. It is a different matter. But they are acting as a glue for Congressmen. People should recognise this point.

Narendra Modi has not created any record by winning elections in Gujrat for three terms. India was ruled by Congress for more than 50 years out of 65 years. Communists ruled West Bengal for more than 35 years. Jyoti Basu alone ruled for 28 years. No body is prepared to talk about poor Sheela Dixit who won the Capital for three consecutive terms. Lalu Yadav ruled Bihar for 15 years continuously.

The dates for the Gujarat Assembly election to be held on December 13 and 17 have been announced by the Election Commission with counting on December 20.

The time has come for the people of Gujarat to teach its corrupt and scam-tainted Chief Minister Narendra Modi a very strong lesson, who boasts about the state economy and the development by misleading the people. The economy is in shambles and mess with more than 50 per cent population of the state living below the poverty line and struggling for survival. His dictatorial attitude has seen communal riots in 2002 in which many innocent people of the minority community had been butchered, are being deprived of basic facilities till today and are asking for justice. I strongly feel that with various scams under Narendra Modi, he has no business to attack Congress Party and its President Sonia Gandhi about the expenditure of foreign tour for her treatment which shows that he is attacking personally and diverting the attention of the people from his total failure in every sector in the state and has turned the once prosperous and developing Gujarat into a backward state. By further supporting Modi, the people of Gujarat will be fully responsible for the downfall of the state.
