    It will be very good for India if he does, chances are less however thanks to our illiterate voters and even worse pseudo-intellectuals. I say pseudo-intellectuals and not pseudo-seculars because these men and women are just parroting what is fashionable among liberals in the West. I wish they would emulate the good qualities of liberal West as well. I dont blame our voters who vote based on caste and religion as they do not know better and most of them are dirt poor but the limousine liberals and fully purchased stooges of Congress will not allow NaMo anywhere near Delhi I believe.

    Not in a country where politicians appeal to religion, sect, caste, sub caste etc.

    But Modi as PM will powe India to 21st century.

    He needs to stay in Gujarat for atleast 5-7 years as some projects which he has initiated are very much ambitious and if he exits Gujarat, I don't think these beurocrafts will complete them under some another person's rule.He took those projects directly under his eyes. Kalpasar is one of them.

    I find Kalpasar very much needed project for central gujarat and saurashtra.GIFT is always welcomed.I was in Pune yesterday and my friend there told me that most of the companies will open their offices there and TCS will boost IT sector.Infosys needs 70acres land just beside TCS but it was only 50 acres.So its project is delayed.I guess it would find the land in very short time and Gandhinagar will be an IT hub in future.

    Since Gujarat is a semi-arid state it has a competitive advantage in terms of industries as non-agricultural land is easily available.
