“MODI-(FICATION)” OF GUJARAT
Is “NM” Heading for the “Kursi” of PM?
The venue was Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad!! The date was December 26. Even as the winter chill swept through the national capital New Delhi and other parts of India, the political heat in Gujarat kept the Gujaratis quite warm. The mass-warmth was worth noticing.
And the reason for this warmth? Quite simple!! The reason was that “He” took oath for the fourth consecutive time as Chief Minister of Gujarat. As “He” was taking the oath, “His” supporters sang in unison “Aaj ka CM, 2014 ka PM!”
If the era of winning very tough electoral battles with the real-time mantra of economic growth has dawned in India, Gujarat is really its “test-case”.
Yes! The worldly wise Gujaratis have proved that they no-more would allow themselves to be sentimentally blackmailed politically by the worn-out “Bhashans” or high-sounding yet hollow speeches of the leaders of different parties and, of course, their false promises.
