General Elections 2014 connote just one personality 'Narendra Modi'
25 April, 2014
Either you are with him or you are against him. And when you are against him, you are not sure of being with whom. It was stunning to watch the gigantic crowd that matched every step with the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP prior to his filing the nomination from the holy city of Banaras. And the enthusiasm- you can recall that if you watched the news headlines on 24th April 2014.
massive support can neither be bought nor could it be gathered by
selling unrealistic dreams. Packed roads, people filled with delight,
and a truly ordinary, however talented person was the center of
attraction. And what for? Definitely, to bring in those changes that
we have been looking forward to since past many decades. Those
changes which we have been promised at numerous times however have
never been delivered.
could have ever thought of such a political milieu when a person with
nil political family background would be the only talked about
subject matter. The BJP, which has rested on the shoulders of this
skilled leader to fetch the requisite numbers, has surely outshined
every other political party, national or regional.
the others, they have disremembered development, education, poverty,
unemployment, and corruption. They are just warning people to stop
this person from being the controller of the state alleging that his
stepping in would be destructive. A CM of a small state, with limited
resources to realize his political ambitions has proven the fact that
actual and honest deliveries are awarded and cheered too.
do you expect from your leader? Definite plan of action with feasible
visionary capabilities? He has it. One who can stand tough in adverse
circumstances rather than resorting to walkout? He owns that
attitude. Someone who possesses global recognition to make a sturdy
impact? Yes, he has that. Proven track record with key successes?
Modi owns that too. One who can make people listen, make opponents
realize, and make the society prosper? He has demonstrated this in
Gujarat and can be expected to do the same nationwide.
we afford a leader with unproven track record, or one who carries the
last name of past influential politicians? The state calls for
instant and deep-rooted reforms that in turn call for hands that have
experienced the heat of fire and brain that has dealt with such state
of affairs. The ultimate decision-maker is the general public. Post
viewing the deliveries of many political leaders, who promised
economic betterment of some however could not deliver for anyone,
trusting them is absurdity.
communities with the deceptive after-effects of Modi’s win is what
almost every other political group has resorted to for fetching
support. In none of his speeches could we hear any motivation to any
particular caste/ religion to vote in favour. He talks about tomorrow
with structured game plan and prosperity of all beyond discrimination
in the name of religion/ status. Surely, this politician is capable
of something that makes every other politician think of stopping him.
who have the power to elect the administrator, too have the authority
to pull down those who fail to deliver. Hence, politicians rather
than befooling must realize the real supremacy of voters who in turn
must deliver prudent and knowledgeable verdict.
