    Narendra Modi is a giant balloon bound to burst soon, Jairam Ramesh says

    Congress has been gearing to face Narendra Modi as its principal challenger. However, the party is divided over whether to acknowledge him upfront as this allows the Gujarat CM to occupy a centrestage. Congress strategist and rural development minister Jairam Ramesh tells Subodh Ghilidiyal how Congress is preparing to counter BJP and Modi in 2014 elections.

    How do you think the Congress is placed for 2014 elections?

    We are optimistic. We have a good performance track record. We face challenges but we are confident we will overcome them. It is now becoming increasingly clear that we are facing RSS and not BJP, and RSS should give up the pretence of being a cultural organization and reveal its true political colours.

    We are conscious that a very deliberate attempt is being made to polarize the 2014 elections under Narendra Modi. Governance is a mukhota, the real underlying strategy seems to be of polarization, and our differences with Modi are stark. He represents an ideology, a philosophy of governance that is at variance with what Congress stands for.

    But it is said Congress would prefer polarization to divert focus from UPA's governance?

    It is clear that Modi works for polarization. His true colours have been revealed. I would like the debate to be on governance, issues of empowerment and inclusiveness. That is what the country needs. But his policy is of polarization. He wants to polarize and create an atmosphere of fear: the language he uses, the underlying strategy in UP, the language used by his Goebels ( Amit Shah) in UP is very clear. It will be a stark choice.

    But Modi has presented himself as a development person.

    If Modi wants governance as an issue, we will debate on it. If he wants polariazation, we will debate on secularism. His governance record is not as it is made out to be. Anybody will tell you whether it was in 1970, 1980, 1990 or 2000, much before the advent of Modi, Gujarat has been among the top 2-3 states of the country in terms of economic development. Look at the data of these early years in terms of industrialisation, entrepreneurship. So the model Modi talks about is figment of his own fevered imagination. The development is because of the nature of Gujarati society.

    In 1991, I did a paper that I presented before vice-president KR Narayanan, where I compared Gujarat model and Kerala model. I said Kerala growth record is not as spectacular as as Gujarat but its social welfare achievements are far better than Gujarat, that there are pockets of Gujarat where human development indicators are very poor. It is a fact. So, the model that Modi is flaunting is no model. Gujarat has benefited from overall growth India has witnessed. Even before Modi came on the scene, Gujarat was on the top of the scene. So, there should be a debate on development. Gujarat has a poor record on human development indicators.

    **********************************************

    1. Who is polarising Indian society?

    2. Ramesh's claim that the UPA has a good performance record. How far is that true?

    3. Ramesh claims that it is not the BJP that the Congress is contesting and instead it is the RSS. Is that correct or is it to scare people off?

    4. Would the Congress prefer polarization to divert focus from UPA's governance?

    5. How far is Ramesh right that it was in 1970, 1980, 1990 or 2000, much before the advent of Modi, Gujarat has been among the top 2-3 states of the country in terms of economic development.?

    Earlier When Jairam termed NAMO as challenge then his party colleague Satyavrat Chaturvedi had advised him, “If Jairam feels Modi is a threat and a challenge, he should resign from the Congress and join the BJP in Gujarat.".

    UPA government performance is pitiable, be it in tackling corruption, higher consumer price index, dealing with internal security situation etc. And they know it very well.

    Technically, UPA will definitely adore situation of polarization to divert public focus from governance to consolidate the minority vote bank as well as certain Hindu cast vote bank. According to Congress calculations, there are a total of 128 Lok Sabha seats where Muslims account for more than 20 percent of the vote. UP leads with 23 such constituencies, Maharashtra 20, Bihar 16, Karnataka 6, Jharkhand 4, MP 4, Kerala and Jammu and Kashmir 6 each, Assam and Andhra Pradesh 5 and West Bengal three. It is calculated that the Modi factor would prompt a direct assault on the BJP in favor of the Congress. In addition, there are 95 such constituencies where the Muslim-backward vote can be a winning combination. However regional political parties are not behind wooing the Muslim vote bank but more or less those parties are ally of congress like SP, BSP, RLD, RJD etc. Latest political development also shows that JD (u) itching close to congress.

    Regarding Gujarat development, there is no doubt that great deal of credit for the progress of Gujarat must go to the strong work ethic and business acumen of the Gujarati people. However I would definitely like to give the credit to DR kurien for his white revolution in Gujarat earlier as in every home of every village you will one high yielding Milch cow or buffalo, and every village had a highly efficient milk collection centre. Gujarat’s white revolution has provided a reliable and valuable 2nd source of income for every rural household and a source of independent income and empowerment for women.

    After that , credit is also due to Narendra bhai under him there has been good progress in infrastructure , energy security , new SEZ and GIDC (for Small scale and medium scale business development) ,Novel irrigation technology for agriculture , rural empowerment etc. I support NAMO as he is putting the more emphasize here on renewable energy sector like Solar energy , bio diesel etc which are necessary in order to achieve the energy security which has always cascading effect on india's economy

    Look at these congis :rofl: each and every top congi is busy spewing hatred of Modi at every chance they get. Not a single one of them seem to have an ounce of character strength. And these people are running the country. If he wants talk about a giant balloon, just look at Rahul Gandhi.

    A great word from former chief minister of Andhrapradesh N.T.Ramarao "if people talks about you,you have something special in you"

    the more they speak of modi the more they are making themselves a fool.

    1.isn't it true that congress govt is polarized to Sonia gandhi or may be rahul gandhi?

    2.good performance in acting and corruption-an unbeatable track record of scams,first time sitting central ministers getting arrested what else not.UPA is a trend setter

    3.had rss ever come into direct polls congress will definitely sht in their pants as all hindu voters will tilt towards rss may not be today but later.

    4.they will use all possible ways of diversion of general public

    5.it could be true that gujrat is ahead of many states in above periods,but it is only modi who increased gujrats economy by his sheer will.

    which state in the country made every major European nation and America to send special envoys with business interests even after naming modi persona non grata.even us is struggling to improving ties with gujarat

    what ever modi might be as a person,he is a very good administrator ,sincere and disciplined.even USA diplomat acknowledged this in their cables.he has every possible character to become PM of india

    though of topic i want to quote a Muslim story

    once a very rich man is going on the streets in month of Ramadan for offering money to beggars( as its a custom to donate in Ramadan)
    after that he goes to cleric and starts boasting that he is the purest Muslim,has not spoken a lie all through Ramadan,donated to poor,prayed five times daily to god and all else,and asks the cleric to say who is the best Muslim

    the cleric says "the beggar outside the mosque is"

    shocked by the clerics answers the person demand an explanation

    the cleric says "you fast only in the period of Ramadan,but this man fasts always shares what he has with other beggars,you pray only five times a day only in Ramadan but the prays god always for what he has most importantly you said you have not lied in all Ramadan but this man has not lied in all his life.what has he got to lie no family no friends no relations there is no need for him to lie"

    true a person like modi with no family no relations has nothing to hide or lie for like congress royal family
