Why Narendra Modi has emerged a strong leader!

Posted by: Parmanand Pandey, General Secretary IPC (Advocate, Supreme Court)

Going by the enthusiasm of the people and the overwhelming response that Mr. Narendra Modi is getting across the country one can safely conclude that he is destined to be coronated as the next Prime Minister of India. There are quite a large number of people, who dislike Narendra Modi to the extent to hating him. Their hatred is so deep and diabolic that they cannot be convinced with any amount of logic or reasoning. Modi bashers say that he has become popular because he is being projected by some important corporate houses of the country with the help of paid media and because of the support of a cadre based organisation like the RSS. They also say that Narendra Modi is a rabid communal person and he has polarised the people of the country based on the religion, which will be detrimental of the polity of the country in the days to come.

However, they conveniently ignore and forget the fact that Narendra Modi has become immensely popular in the country not only because of the reasons being given by his adversaries but there are many more factors which has been responsible to make him what he is. Is it not a fact that most of the political parties, particularly the Congress Party, have not been indulging in the appeasement of the Muslims and treating them as vote bank? Is it not true that Congress Party and many of its allies have not perpetuated the caste politics and the cult of dynastic politics? Can anybody deny that there has been a backbreaking rise in the prices during the regime of Dr. Man Mohan Singh, which is run by the remote control of Ms Sonia Gandhi? Is it not a fact that many swindles, scandals and cases of corruption have not eaten the country to hollow during the last ten years of Congress Government?

It is a known fact, that the foreign policy of this country has no say in the comity of the nations. India is no longer respected as the strong and powerful country in the world. Even the smaller countries do not bother much about India. The relationship with the neighboring countries like; Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Maldives has touched to its nadir. Pakistan, although a failed state and a bankrupt country, has never been friendly with India, yet it is poking its nose in the internal affairs of the country. Terrorist activities in India often take place with assistance and complicity of Pakistan. Many modules of terrorists have sprung up across India with the monetary support of Pakistan. Pakistan also works as the conduit between the Indian terrorists and terrorism exporting countries like Saudi Arabia.

These weaknesses of the Government and the Administration have left the people with no choice but to go to Mr. Narendra Modi, who has emerged as one of the strongest leaders the country has seen after independence. While all political parties are bending over backwards to  appease the minorities but here is a person who says that he will not succumb to any pressure and will remain upright to every citizen of the country regardless of caste, creed or religion without any fear or favor of anybody. That is what India needs at this time.

The political terra firma has almost become barren and that is the reason that Modi haters take the shelter behind the Gujarat riots of 2002. They shamelessly use the snoop gate or, the estranged relationship with wife against him. The fact is that in both cases the complaints have not come from the side of those who have supposedly suffered. The woman of the snoop gate has not said against Narendra Modi. His wife Yashoda Ben, who was married to him in the childhood, has no regrets for not being with Narendra Modi. She has herself said that she prays to God that he becomes the Prime Minister and serve the country in the best possible manner.  All the political adversaries of Narendra Modi have been side lined whether they are the leaders of the BJP like; L.K. Advani, Sushma Sauraj, Murli Manohar Joshi or Yashwant Singh. His opponents in the Congress Party like; Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi or Dig- Vijay Singh find themselves completely disillusioned. Man Mohan, the Prime Minister, is completely out of scene. Mulayam Singh, Mayawati, Jayalaitha, Mamta Bengerjee and Nitish Kumar have hardly any role to play.

 Arvind Kejriwal could have certainly changed the political discourse of the country if he had not been in the tearing hurry of becoming the Prime Minster of the country. In his impatience to get the power he even jettisoned his guru and mentor Anna Hazare. Anna Hazare must be credited to have changed the thought -process of the most of the people of particularly of the youngsters of the country. He was the harbinger of the hope for the young generation, which has been crumbling under the burden of corruption and unemployment. Nevertheless, this man Arvind Kejriwal drifted from path as shown by Anna Hazare. People believed him for some time but now he stands exposed. That is the reason that Mr. Arvind Kejriwal and his party has been dumped on the way side by the people of the country.

The type of response and support, which Mr. Narendra Modi received in Varanasi when he had gone to file his nomination paper, was unprecedented And that is why, we find a ray of hope and wish Narendra Modi gets absolute majority in Lok Sabha to bring about the changes that he has envisioned. May God help our country and us!

    I won’t tell you anything new, but this is the same with everything in life.
    You’d think past showes us at least anything, but alas.
    Disagree if you will but the world changes, and none of us have no control over it.
    For instance, If only Barack had any balls to put Putin to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome world war.
    Great post, thanks!

    Yes, Sarah. The world is changing and none of us have any control over it. Past indeed shows us something: it was full of conflicts and wars; even religious wars! Should it happen once again in future? Certainly, no. But can it happen again in future? Please do not give the answer but find out the cause; if you find the cause still existing, the answer is there. As the proverb goes, clapping is done by two hands: war and conflicts (and include the pace also) always need two sides. Please, do not bring Hitler in the Indian context and answer any of the facts mentioned in this post is INCORRECT. Modi says, he is Hindu; perhaps you may agree Hinduism has been the most tolerant in attitude in so far as religions go. Of course, there are a few rabids there also but they do not get the approval from the general Hindu mass. Modi never ever said that he is out to kill those who disagree with him. But if he says he wants to firmly crush corruption, violence and wants to put India on the fast growth road with determination, what wrong do you find with it? Thanks for your valuable caution about India.

    Dear Sarah,
    Saw your comment.
    While I appreciate your concern against the probable rise of dictatorship, I do not find any reason that the Indian system will allow anybody to become dictator. The roots of the rule of law- represented by the Judiciary, Parliament and Executive- have got well entrenched. They are autonomous but interdependent to each other but no branch can usurp or encroach upon the rights of the other.
    The comparison of Barack Obama with that of Narendra Modi is odious. However, I agree with you that neither any country nor any individual should have the concentration of powers.
