While the entire India including congress and its allies know who is the probable NDA candidate for the Prime Ministerial Candidature ,Uddhav Thackeray, the Shiv Sena head, prefers stating there are many probably candidates to select from and time will let all know who that candidate would be standing for NDA.
Why is he ignorant about the NaMo mantra ? Is it because Narendra Modi is close to Raj Thackeray , the MNS Supremo or he wishes to keep people guessing till the last. After all , it is a known fact , that NDA cannot even dream of its governance if Modi is not shown the candidate for PM’s post. And the stance of BJP is quite clear in this respect.In Mumbai , BJP put up posters portraying Narendra Modi as the Hindu Nationalist- a statement given by Modi about himself a few days back.
Its all in the game called politics.After breaking up all ties of 17 long years with NDA ,Nitish Kumar and his JD(U) team has received praises from our Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh and has been awarded with an imaginary ‘secular leader’ title,all of a sudden. In response,Nitish Kumar,Chief Minister,Bihar said he is at ‘peace of mind’ being termed a secular leader by the PM himself.
All political break-up and fresh love in the air. 😀 😀
All in all, Nitish Kumar has managed to drop himself and his party in a secular land 😀 . How safe , only 2014 knows it better!! 🙂
All the drama prior to 2014 General Elections. JD(u) may soon call off its political alliance with BJP after Modi has been made the Head Of the Election Committee,following which Advani resigned and now is being pleased by partymen. NDA weakening may surely give an edge to Congress to think for yet another term in 2014 and may raise the possibility of a different political equation altogether.
As of now, while Narendra Modi can expect things happening his way,it is also true that people who are anti-Modi in NDA and BJP itself,are preferring sidelining as per their vested interests.
* to all the regular visitors and blogger friends – my internet continues to play tricks. This post if published in another 5 minutes will cross the mark of 45 minutes ( the highest time it took for me , so far, to publish my posts within the last few days). I request your continued co-operation.
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 😀 )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 !! 🙂
BJP the major opposition party is struggling for a leader with L.K Advani, Narendra Modi and Nitin Gadkari being three bosses running in their own directions and to add on NDA ally party JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar is also hopeful of being the candidate and he has been constantly discouraging Narendra Modi’s candidature ! It looks like a rat race so far !
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.
