    NEW DELHI: Congress had a dig at Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi over his 'Sadbhavna' mission fast at Godhra, wondering whether it was for expiating for the 2002 communal discord in the state.

    "Modi should better clarify for which reason he had undertaken the fast at Godhra?"

    "Is he expiating for carnage in Godhra or for the fact that the functioning of the legal system came under a cloud under his regime and more than 100 cases were transferred outside Gujarat? If he maintains ambiguity, the whole nation will see it as a political drama," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.

    He said Congress felt Modi is undertaking the fast to "mislead" the people and get over the "taint" of the 2002 riots.

    "We do not expect any clarification will come from Modi as his objective is to spread ambiguity and speak in forked tongue to get political mileage. There is no sincerity behind the fast".

    Doesn't make any difference. He is what he is. Like or Dislike. Haters gonna Hate. Keep shouting for another 10 years and he will continue to move ahead with development.

    He is not going to wear Muslim topi to appease Muslims. He made sure that 120 corporators from the Muslim community elected in municipal bodies on BJP ticket in Gujarat. Just to give them proper representation. It was not compulsory for him. Still, He did. Tell me one other state that has as many elected Muslim representatives from the BJP. It's None. When he talks of development, He always refers 60 Million Gujarati and not 55 million.

    Narendra Modi’s promise of a “New India” is not a dream that needs to be told by the BJP. It is a dream already sold by Narendra Modi by development of Gujarat. Rest people of the country will decide in 2012 & 2014 respectively. :)

    even many bjp's alley does not like modi.nitish kumar will stay away from modi.if modi becomes bjp's pm candidate bjp will lose many nda alley and no new party will join in nda.i don't think mr.modi won't be bjp's pm candidate.sushma swaraj,arun jetly,nitin gadkari has greater chance to become bjp's pm candidate than modi because of qualition politics.
    Why he is suddenly doing fast and talking about religious harmony.he does not wear muslim cap agree.but why he shouting allahu akbar.does modi know what it means.its not suitable for any non muslim to say that.he knew to become a pm candidate he needs a non communal and liberal tag like atal bhiari vajpey.thats why he suddenly starts fast.why godhra
    after 10 years of riot he suddenly doing fast for religious harmony.in 2002 after riot atalji said modi fails to do raj dharma.so its not easy.

    Who told you ?? You are making own assumption based of election campaign. Since, You said. Let me reply.

    The BJP has only three NDA allies at present: Shiv Sena, Shiromani Akali Dal and Janata Dal (United). Shiv Sena and Akali Dal have cordial relations with Narendra Modi and that was established at the fast venue. I don't need to say about SS and AD.

    The JD (U)’s opposition to Narendra Modi is overstated. Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar is a shrewd politician and has strong political instincts. Nitish Kumar continued as the Railways minister in the Vajpayee government in 2002 when the communal riots followed and had not protested against Gujarat developments then.

    Nitish Kumar had once told a media acquaintance in a personal conversation, ”Who wants the BJP to get the Muslim votes for us? We want the BJP to win Hindu votes for us.” and Today he is CM with BJP support. He is not fool who is sharing 40% power with BJP if he can win on own.

    Nitish needs the BJP as much as the BJP needs the JD (U). This is amply illustrated by the combined vote share of just 39% (JD-U 22.6% plus BJP 16.5%) in last year’s Bihar assembly polls. It ihas been a trusted ally of the BJP and has immensely profited from this association.

    Post-Modi fast, Cong minority campaign

    When the hell he is shouting Allahu Akbar ? :shocked: Are you dreaming ??? Prove it, then i will reply.

    Sadbhavna Mission is to reach every 25 district of Gujarat after 10 years of development success which has been said on many times even by his critics. Now, What's wrong in that ? Every political party has right to do. There has been no communal riot there for last 10 years and all communities are living peacefully and his entire focus on development and few people still living in 2002 ?? Get over it.

    He knows what you don't understand. Any person can become P.M. who has support of 272 M.P. in Loksabha irrespective of ideology, cast, religion and region. Got the point ? if BJP will declare him P.M., BJP will win 200 seats easily and 4 parties like SS, AIADMK, AD, JD(u) and some smaller regional parties will support. It's possible.

    As far as Muslims are concerned, Muslims voted tactically and vehemently against the BJP in 1996, 1998 and 1999 when a moderate Atal Behari Vajpayee was projected as prime minister. They might do again in 2014, who knows ? and what does it make difference ?? Nothing. Everyone knows that. It's upto them to support or not.

    As far as new allies are concerned, AIADMK, MNS, RPI already reaching Modi. May be already done unofficially. AGP, TRS, BJD, INLD/HJC was with BJP few years back. May be they will back again. I don't think BJP needs more, More allies are negative for BJP collision government.

    Whether he will become PM or not. it's too early to say. I am not sure as of now. But whatever, at least he is good CM of Gujarat :) Let's give the credit when it's due.

    I am all for building bridges between communities of India so that all can have a peaceful and constructive life.

    However, irrespective of political parties, the efforts are mere charades.

    When politicians, cutting across the political spectrum, lament on TV shows that they are taken as charlatans by the Nation, they should realise that they give grounds for that belief.

    They do realize that, but that is part of the political game. They cannot get over self priorities. Who joins politics for social service?

    Mani Shankar Aiyer gives that impression that he is there for social upliftment of society at large.

    In Indian politics, every mohra is part of the game plan, even the white ones.

    Sir, Building brides is good but pillar of bridges should be based on Indian culture and tradition and not on Arabi or European. :)

    Bang on. Sadly secularist clowns and traitors don't understand this stuff because it doesn't serve their foreign ideological masters.
