After JD(U) its Shiv Sena which wants BJP to declare the NDA candidate for Prime Minister’s job ! While Sena has no complains with Modi and 2002 riots where they say that none could avoid those riots , it wants Sushma Swaraj to be the candidate and not Narendra Modi (sounds like the present Sena supremo is in a dilemma) !! ;)
All in all, looks like BJP is in a bigger fix! Nitish Kumar, the Bihar CM wants a secular candidate (without naming himself :D )and prefers supporting L.K.Advani as the candidate (whose involvement in Ayodhya Movement has been pardoned by Nitish, I suppose :) ) while Sena declared its choice already.
Lets see if the NaMo mantra will cross the major barriers of objecting allies or not !!
If Congress sources are to be believed, Dr Manmohan Singh may become the party’s choice for the prime minister’s post for a possible third term if Rahul Gandhi continues to insist on staying behind and strengthening the party rather than opting as the face for UPA Prime Ministerial Candidate for 2014 General Elections !
Well, sounds like a fairy tale.As if Rahul Gandhi does not know that if, at all, UPA gets a third chance to serve the nation, it would surely be his last opportunity to take the driving seat and probably make things happen for Congress. In the opposition,the Cold War between Bihar’s CM, Nitish Kumar, and Gujarat’s CM, Narendra Modi, may take a bigger shape if Modi is selected as the prime ministerial candidate for NDA.
Congress indicates , Manmohan may serve third term if UPA wins , while Rahul is not being kept totally away from the gossip on the topic.On the other side, BJP is also yet to clear its stands on whether Modi is the prime ministerial candidate for NDA or not. To add on, Mulayam Singh’s re-indication of formation of a Third-Front by the year end, is adding on to the confusion.
It all looked like,Rahul Vs Modi,till 2012 but now things are getting blur. No matter what the combination may come out as, one thing is assured,with Modi proving to be the most suitable Prime Ministerial candidate amongst any names we take throughout the country , it would never be easy for Rahul Gandhi to get the seat without proving his worth,ever.
Coming April 9, Gujarat’s CM, Narendra Modi is scheduled to address industrialists in Kolkata and his party had planned a reception that evening for him at the city’s famous Netaji Indoor Stadium, which can seat over 10,000 people.While the stadium initially told it was free suddenly backed-off siting preoccupation by a private party,leaving BJP party workers helpless. The state President of BJP,Rahul Sinha,wrote to the Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee , who said she could not help .
Is this a beginning of tussle between two aggressive leaders and Chief Ministers of India ?
BJP won 47 out of 75 seats in municipal corporation elections. BJP aka Narendra Modi ,in Gujarat,with 24 Muslim candidates who all won it for the party, clearly indicate that even the minorities understand development would mean nothing but supporting Narendra Modi. Difficult to analyse if the Muslims of the state have actually forgiven Chief Minister Modi for the 2002 riots or it is just that they do not have any option but BJP if they seek to progress . With Congress which had won town elections for decades ended up winning none, the message seems clear.
Gujarat Chief Minister will visit Allahabad to take a holy dip at the Maha Kumbh Mela on Feb 12 .
Congress has declared that Rahul Gandhi Vs Narendra Modi in 2014 General Elections is a ‘media joke‘ and that they have democratic procedure of electing a Prime Ministerial Candidate on behalf of the party . Well, Modi’s is yet another victory in Gujarat and Congress’ failure in Uttar Pradesh Elections where the campaign was led by Rahul Gandhi is self-explaining as to why Congress has no face to show Rahul Gandhi as competitor against Narendra Modi for prime ministerial post.
