In an interview to Reuters,Gujarat’s CM , Narendra Modi claimed he was innocent in the Gujarat riots.To add on he said while driving if a puppy comes under the wheel, it will be painful and that even he is a human being. If something bad happens anywhere, it is natural to be sad.
Congress and other parties were quick to pick up the analogy and hit out at him for using the puppy word in the context of the riots while BJP was busy defending the statement by Modi.
Narendra Modi,the Gujarat Chief Minister, who is being accused of playing a major negative role(accused of promoting violence against minorities) in the 2002 riots of Gujarat , is looking for a makeover of his image.He has suggested several amendments in law, right from electoral laws (to boycott candidates with records of communal violence)to laws of punishment for people spreading and involving in communal violence ! How decent ! 🙂
Vijay Darda, the Congress MP, has been facing severe criticism and media attention since he praised Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi , in a religious function attended by Mr Modi and Baba Ramdev along with Mr Darda. He addressed Modi as the lion of Gujarat and a religious saint. While the media and even Modi noticed his words and also commented that he is worried about how Congress is going to react listening to this statement from its own MP praising Modi !
As expected , once the news spread like wild-fire Mr Darda was seen busy explaining and justifying his statement for Modi and that he never referred Modi as a religious saint.He gave a funny reasoning, that addressing Modi as a lion was to criticize his involvement in 2002 riots of Gujarat and also to indicate BJP (and RSS) are held hostage by Modi in Gujarat(the political parties he belongs to).
No matter whatever points of sarcasm he may come up with , it is clear that he was actually praising Modi by addressing him as the king of Gujarat as that is what we mean when we use lion and tiger words for an individual!Funny is, all political parties are so scared of losing their reputation (which either ways none have) and their vote bank that they end up mocking themselves by defending or criticizing such small incidents !
As per Nitish Kumar , NDA needs a candidate for the post of Prime Minister who has a secular thought. Obvious enough Narendra Modi the aspirant from BJP does not fall in the category and the next available option would be Nitish himself,for NDA. His achievements as a Chief Minister and a ‘secular’ stamp in political world makes him a tough contender along with Narendra Modi to be considered for the post. But as one alliance cannot be represented by two candidates chances are that NDAs old ally JD(U) may split away. On the other hand BJP has almost cleared its stand on the Prime Ministerial Candidate issue by blindly supporting Narendra Modi and indicating his preference over Nitish for the PM poll.
Yesterday, addressing a public meeting in Rajkot, Gujarat’s Chief Minister,Narendra Modi, had reportedly said that Bihar, at one point of time, was a political and spiritual leader of the country, but it slipped into socio-economical backwardness ever since the casteist leadership took to centre stage !
Today , Bihar’s Chief Minister , Nitish Kumar counter-attacked by asking people to look at the condition of their own State which was clearly meant for Mr Modi.
Both the Chief Ministers are great administrators of their states and fall under the same political alliance of NDA where Narendra Modi is a strong contender from BJP as the Prime Ministerial candidate for NDA while Nitish Kumar from JDU has also emerged as a strong contender for the post,on behalf of NDA! Nitish Kumar has a secular image compared to Modi but has yet not gained as much popularity as Modi has , throughout the nation !
Well, the tug of Cold, Word-War may be because they are competitors. 🙂
USA Congressman Joe Walsh, a right wing conservative Republican has written a letter to Ms Hillary Clinton,Secretary of State, requesting her to consider granting a diplomatic visa to Mr Modi,attracting strong reactions from the Indian American Muslim community.
