    A very good analysis by an insider...looking at the Editor's Note, it is scary that many of our bureaucrats come from JNU and DU..

    Good article. Mayawati has given statement that general elections will be held in 2013 and that she will oppose Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister in every way. If NaMo with his development agenda becomes strong at national level communal and deeply coorrupt parties like Congress with KHAP/KHAM, SP with M-Y and Mayawati with Dalit votebank politics will be out of business.

    This is beyond belief for mostly upper caste, mostly rich, mostly urban leftist mafia, congressi Rajas, mediapersons and “intellectuals”. The upper caste Muslims, the promoter of Islamism and admires of foreign Turks and Mongol overlords of India, are insecure about their power and wealth to which they have grown accustomed to while muslims masses lived in deprivity.

    Very correct.

    He has promoted a liberal and market friendly economic policies and thus increased prosperity, jobs and social mobility. The caste system is based on the two foundations-endogamy and denial of economic freedom. People are trapped in their respective professions which they have inherited by the accident of the birth. The central point in the caste system has been the denial of the economic freedom often enforced by the perpetuation of the violence. And it is on the economic freedom that all our other freedoms rest. The caste system can be broken only by providing antidote-economic liberty-to the fundamental reason that sustains it. Modi by following this policy has rattled the socialist brigade who see the lifetime of their work collapsing like a heap of card. Caste system cannot be overcome by socialism as many people falsely believe. In fact, caste system is very much like socialism as it imposes the dictate of the society on the individuals, reduces the scope of individual entrepreneurship & choice and places the society above individual. People are told what they should think rather than what they actually think. Socialism can only strengthen caste system and identities as can be seen in communist dominated states of W.B, Kerala or heartland of socialist politics i.e. U.P, Bihar etc.

    Good points.

    The media is still trying to engineer fissures. Exampli Gratia being - RSS opposes Modi, BJP central leaders do not like Modi's high handed approach, Natin Gadkari and Modi do not get on etcetra etcetra.

    I have never voted in my life. But I will this time around.

    Welcome to Election Commission of India

    Just a small example of anti-Modi muddleheads.

    They said
    He is the devil incarnate because he is a pro-Hindutva icon, 'anti-Muslim', extremist backed persona.
    They also said
    Modi can never be PM because he is strongly anti-VHP and anti-RSS and has done a lot to dismantle these organisations in Gujrat. He can never garner their support

    It doesn't need a psychiatrist to tell that these 'secular'-'experts' need the services of one.

    NAMO had stated very clearly that we need to speak with Pakistan in the language they understand. Its time we sent a message to them in their language.

    A CJI working on the orders of a UPA law minister has forced his Judges to pass this stupid order and it even shames the remarks by SC judges in Gen VK Singh case when they asked him to swim with the tide and not against it. Don't our Judges know that a change is always brought abt by those who dare to swim against the tide.

    SC has set a very dangerous precedent in this case. It substituted advice of HC for that cabinet!! It is a clear encroachment on the field of the Executive.

    Congress meeting in Jaipur to discuss Narendra Modi-India News - IBNLive Mobile
    Congress meeting in Jaipur to discuss Narendra Modi
    IBN7 | 15-Jan 15:20 PM
    New Delhi: The Narendra Modi enigma is baffling the Congress and sources say at the party's brainstorming session, which begins the Gujarat Chief Minister will be the biggest political issue. A large section of the Congress believes that Rahul Gandhi has to be made the prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls to counter Modi.
    According to the sources, the Congress meeting on January 18 and 19 will discuss Modi and ways to counter him. Congress leaders are of the view that Modi will lead in the BJP's election campaign in 2014 following his third consecutive victory in Gujarat.
    The Congress is finalising its strategy around Rahul Gandhi. A large section of the Congress believes that Rahul Gandhi counter Modi. Several leaders feel that Congress will benefit is Modi leads BJP's election campaign as the Minority votes will polarise in favour of the Congress.
    But the biggest headache for the Congress is that Modi has acquired a reputation of being development oriented leader and is seen as the top regional leader. So the meeting will also try to come up with a strategy to counter Modi.
    The party's biggest worry is that in most of the large states the party has been out of power for almost two decades. Congress has not formed government in Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal for over two decades and has been out of power in Tripura, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha for nearly 10 years. Even in Andhra Pradesh where the Congress has been very strong, the rise of Jagan Mohan Reddy has come as a huge setback.
    Between these political challenges, the atmosphere is also against the Congress due to corruption charges on UPA 2. So the Congress wants Rahul Gandhi to lead its election campaign.
    On the other hand, BJP has not yet officially taken Modi's name as its flag bearer during the 2014 polls due to its internal tug of war. But many BJP leaders admit that Modi is the strongest contender even as Congress sources say that Bihar Nitish Kumar could break the ties with the NDA if Modi is make the prime ministerial candidate.

    Modi’s slogan ‘development for all and appeasement of none’ is impacting Muslims : Uday Mahurkar - India Today Blogs

    Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s slogan ‘development without appeasement or discrimination’, which is an antidote to the politics of minority appeasement being practiced in the country for decades, is clearly finding robust acceptability amongst a vast section of Muslims in Gujarat. And if the same phenomenon starts having impact at the national level then Modi might emerge as one of the first politicians ever to find a solution to the politics of religious appeasement that has torn the nation’s social fabric. A close look at the voting pattern of Muslims in the recent Gujarat Assembly polls gives a big thumbs-up to Modi’s ‘politics of development for all’ and his call to free India from the clutches of vote-bank politics. An unbelievable 30 to 60 per cent Muslims voted for the BJP in as many as 22 constituencies where Muslims are in significant numbers.

    In Wagra in South Gujarat and Bhuj in Kutch, Muslim votes played a key role in the BJP victory though the Congress candidates on both the seats were Muslims. As Kamaluddin Kazi , a school van owner in Gandevi in South Gujarat, puts it: “The civic works that Muslim areas have seen in Gandevi town by the local BJP-ruled municipality are unprecedented. In fact, development is coming to us for the first time since Independence. I pray Modi becomes Prime Minister of India in 2014.” Adds Mehboobali Bavasaheb, president of the Gujarat BJP Minority Morcha, who played a stellar role in taking Modi’s message of development to the Muslims: “This election is, in a way, a turning point in the political context. Muslim support to Modi on his development plank has surpassed our best expectations.”

    Gandevi is a good example as to why Muslims are veering towards Modi. Sixty per cent of Muslims voted for BJP candidate and former minister Mangubhai Patel here on the basis of the development. Just an year ago, the Muslim Ghanchiwad area in the town used to look like a slum in monsoon as pools of stinking water bred mosquitoes on its kuchha , muddy roads. Today, it has a cement road and the streets are spic and span and lined with streetlights. The four BJP Muslim councillors in the BJP-ruled Gandevi municipality have worked wonders with the help of local BJP leaders. Says a proud Afsabanu Mujavar, one of the BJP councillors: “Today Modi and Muslims have mutual respect for each other because of his attempts to bring development to the Muslims’ doorstep. Muslims want progress and justice not appeasement.”

    Same is the feeling amongst a large number of Muslims in Palej town near Bharuch which is part of the Wagra constituency where Muslims constitute almost 50 per cent. Here the BJP’s Hindu candidate defeated the Congress’s Muslim candidate with the help of Muslim votes. In Palej town, nearly 35 per cent of local Muslims voted for the BJP on the slogan of development which is symbolised here by the revival of a closed government hospital in the form of community health centre at a cost of Rs 2.70 crore. The hospital is proving to be a boon to pregnant women. Every month about 30 deliveries take place in the town and now women in labour don’t need to travel 20 km to Bharuch for delivery.

    Said burqa-clad Bilkisbanu Patel, 25, wife of a Muslim rickshaw driver awaiting her delivery in the hospital: “This hospital is a blessing for one and and all.” The hospital building was made in 1967 but it never became operational and in due course locals started tying their cattle in it and also storing cattle feed. When Modi sent clear signals in 2007 that he meant development for Muslims too, the Palej Muslims approached local MLA Dushyant Patel who got Rs 2.70 crore sanctioned from Modi government for reviving the defunct hospital.

    When reminded that Modi didn’t give ticket to a single Muslim in the recent polls, Malang Pathan, a BJP worker in Palej, says: “Needy Muslims want development, not tickets .” Rasool Khan, a farmer, goes a step further: “The Modi Government has given us everything that we wanted, from roads and hospital to potable drinking water. Why shouldn’t we vote for Modi?”

    The tone of a significant number of Navsari Muslims is similar, thanks to the turnaround in civic amenities they have seen under the local BJP-controlled municipal body. Khatija Dabheli, 54, a housewife in the semi-slum Hidayatnagar area and wife of a taxi driver, can’t stop praising the BJP ever since the civic body made a pucca road in the locality. “Our area used to stink in monsoon due to the kuchha road. The pucca road has come as a big relief .” Yasin Chisti, 55, a former journalist is blunt when he says: “We are for Modi because we want development. Modi is straight and talks in one voice unlike other parties.”

    In Bhuj constituency where the BJP’s Nimaben Acharya won against Congress’s Amir Ali Lodhiya , the Muslims were impressed by the employment that Modi has brought to the distant Muslim villages on the Pakistan border in the form of tourism development. Plus, Modi has got national animal status to the famous Kutchi buffalo of Banni , thus leading to an impressive increase in its sale price.

    Interestingly, in South Gujarat at many places both the moderate Barelvis or Sufis and the orthodox Deobandis voted for the BJP. But in many places like Porbandar, the schism between the Barelvis and the Deobandis came out in the open with the former voting for BJP in hordes, drawn by Modi’s speech early this year at a Muslim function when he said: “I am a supporter of Sufism as Sufi tradition is an integral part of Indian culture.” Says Maulana Abdulsattar Hamdani, a Sufi leader of Porbandar: “Modi is the first Chief Minister to speak such words for Sufism in unequivocal terms.”

    In Porbandar, the Barelvis, who far outnumber Deobandis, played a key role in the defeat of state Congress chief Arjun Modhwadia as nearly 65 per cent of the local Muslims voted for BJP candidate Babu Bokhiriya.

    The Congress poohs poohs Modi’s claims of all-round development. Says Gyasuddin Shaikh , newly elected Congress MLA from Dariapir in Ahmedabad: “It is part of Modi’s strategy with an eye on his future goals that he keeps harping on Muslim support to him. But Muslims will never accept Modi. Those Muslims who voted for BJP this time did so on the strength of the work done by individual BJP MLAs.” However, Gujarat poll results reveal Modi is a on a stronger wicket now on the Muslim issue.

    This is true secularism. All Indians - Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Jain, etc - need equal access to facilities such as health, education, etc.

    Few years back (before 2007) media was barking like mad for Juhapura area of Ahmedabad which is largest muslim dominated area in ahmedabad or may be gujarat. They were telling there was no development in that area, no banks are opening their branch (like state govt is responsible for that). now if u pass through that area it is as good as any other area in ahmedabad. Now they have shut their mouth and not uttered 'J' word during this election.

    Undie TV running down `Vibrant Gujarat` as myth with farmer suicides (no 1 state for farmer suicides is Maharashtra) and child malnutrition.

    Is 'Vibrant Gujarat' more hype than reality?

    Rajkot lawyer nominates ‘bro’ Narendra Modi as her heir - India - DNA
    [​IMG]

    When it comes to Modi’s fan-following, there’s no end to the story of adulation for the chief minister — from being dubbed as vikaspurush to being put in the same league as Sardar Patel and Gandhiji. However, while many heap words of praises on him, this advocate in Rajkot has cemented her praise for Modi in bona fide bank documents.

    Mina Raval, 42, an advocate has nominated chief minister Narendra Modi as her legal nominee in her savings and fixed deposits she holds in a branch of a nationalised bank. Thus, if she dies accidentally, Raval wants her ‘brother’ CM to get her deposits and use it for the promotion and development of tourism and welfare of Rajkot city police!

    In the declaration for nomination form with the bank, she has mentioned Narendra Modi’s name and declared him as ‘brother’ in the column where a depositor has to declare the relationship with the nominee. It should be noted that the bank deposits are just a part of her largesse. She is also considering nominating Modi for her immovable property too. In that case, the apartment she owns at the plush Jagnath plot area of the city which runs into several lakhs of rupees too may go to her ‘brother’!

    “For me, he (Modi) is a father figure. I have very high respect and regards for him. He is the true leader, a visionary which I have dreamt of when I was in college. I want my money to be used by him if I die,” Raval told DNA.

    For the past 12 years, Raval has been practising law in civil and revenue cases in Rajkot. “I am unmarried. I want my funds to be used for the society’s good. I find only Modi to be the one who thinks about development and therefore I am nominating his name,” she explained.

    “As of now, I have nominated his name only for my movable assets with banks. I am also planning a will in the near future. I may also donate some parts of my immovable assets to the chief minister,” she said.

    According to her wishes, 75% of the funds are to be used in promotion and development of tourism in the state, while the remaining 25% are to be used for the welfare of police department in Rajkot city. “I like travelling and I think it needs further assistance. I also salute the police for their duty. I think these two areas need greater public funds,” she added.
