Modi’s coronation, Opposition’s ammunition

Posted by Shreyans Jain Tuesday, 17 September 2013 0 comments

Amidst the news of strained relationship between the ‘loh purush’ (iron man) and the ‘vikas purush’ (development icon), the news of the latter’s coronation as the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate has brought about a sense of euphoria among his supporters and followers. New water replacing old water is the rule of the nature and the same applies to an organisation as well. It is the duty of veteran party leaders to guide and encourage seemingly ‘youngsters’ to ensure that the organisation survives forever. For his opponents, he may be the poster boy of the Hindutva forces, but for the youth he symbolises a new ray of hope that has the potential to bring about a radical change in the social and economic scenario of the nation. An efficient administrator, an effective orator and an assertive minister, he is a decent blend of qualities that people look for in their representative. 

At this juncture when the economy is facing a slowdown, the current account deficit is burgeoning, the currency is weakening, the foreign exchange reserves are depleting, there is an urgent need for an administrator who can crack the whip on those accomplice of this malaise. In the last decade, there has been unprecedented spurt in scams and crime. From irregularities in coal block allocation to the losses incurred in the auction of 2G spectrum, from financial mismanagement in the VVIP helicopter deal to the Adarsh and CWG scam and squandering away of taxpayer’s money, there is a race among the unscrupulous politicians to rob the country of its resources and siphon off as much booty as possible before the noose is tightened on their neck. This had led to widespread resentment and anger in the public. Shoddy investigations of scams and scandals have made a mockery of our criminal justice system and have only added salt in the wounds of the beleaguered people. Blaming poor for their poverty by calling poverty a state of mind and depriving them of their due share by manipulating the poverty figures, the present dispensation has failed to bridge the divide between the haves and the have-nots. The only thing it has done to assuage the belligerent citizens is increase the ambit of reservation – to admissions, to jobs and to promotions.


There is a need to rise above cheap practices to intended gain political mileage. Equally important is to break the chain of dynastic politics that is deepening its roots in various states. Instead of chanting the ‘polarising figure’ phrase and questioning his secular credentials, those living in glass houses better be wary of throwing stones at others. We need a leader who has the ability to unite and take people along with him while ascending the growth ladder. We need a leader who is neither derisive nor divisive but one who can strengthen the social fabric of the nation. Narendra Modi is certainly a good choice.
