    I think when he talks of his development model it includes job security. His stint as Gujarat CM shows he is pro-industry. Gujarat is one of the best performers when it comes to unemployment.

    Survey says Gujarat has lowest unemployment; Narendra Modi is 'delighted'

    He hasn't shown signs of succumbing to populist policies, hopefully it will remain that way.

    Good. Youth without jobs are the root cause of too much of India's problems -

    rape and the 'marriage deficit' - how is marriage sustainable when young people do not have a secure economic future? And without marriage and/or the institutions that channel the passions of young people into a desire to better oneself and the world around them, how do you solve rape?
    general crime - how can young people feed themselves without stealing?
    political and religious extremism - young people succumb to extremist movements when they are not grounded in the reality of day-to-day work
    a simultaneously insecure and jingoistic foreign policy - jealous glances at the success of other developing countries translates into latent hostility and a sense that other countries are not 'playing fair', when the root of the issue is in poor domestic governance

    The other thing Modi has to do is provide the right jobs - those with structure, mass organization, opportunities to learn, and ones that build the national stock of capital.

    Does he have a plan to do it?

    Generally poverty as a whole and income disparity specifically. Add to that pathetic labor laws wherein an "employed" day-laborer can barely feed his family.

    I believe more crimes in India are out of greed(or drugs) than need.

    Nope. A lot of educated and employed guys turn to religious extremism in India.

    Indian foreign policy is hardly jingoistic. Hell, it is not even reasonable aggressive. What you call insecurity is actually caution, we have Pakistan as a neighbor and China has started flexing its muscles.

    Modi to prop up party for polls

    The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Prime Minister candidate Narendra Modi will be gearing up party machinery in Kerala for the Lok Sabha elections during his two-day visit to the State.

    Mr. Modi, who arrives in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday evening, will address a meeting of the office-bearers of the party at 7 p.m. and have interactions with them and others on the Lok Sabha polls.

    Party spokesperson V.V. Rajesh told The Hindu that Mr. Modi would be hearing the views of office-bearers on elections and presenting his proposals for the campaign. Ways to strengthen the party machinery for the election campaign would also be discussed.

    On Thursday, Mr. Modi is to participate in the 60th birthday celebrations of Mata Amritanandamayi at Amritapuri near Kollam. He is likely to visit the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple here and call on the royal family of Travancore.

    In April, the Gujarat Chief Minister had attended a function at Sivagiri Mutt, creating a flutter in the political sphere. It is the BJP’s strategy this time to focus on southern States to make up for deficits in the North to emerge as the largest party in Parliament. However, Kerala does not count in its electoral arithmetic unless it is able to attract some loners like P.C. Thomas (IFDP) in 2004 or win the Thiruvananthapuram seat. But for Mr. Modi, an increase in BJP’s vote share in Kerala could be termed certain level of endorsement for his brand of politics from a State dominated by minorities and leftists, and hence a victory.

    O. Rajagopal, who could win nearly 30 per cent of the votes from Thiruvananthapuram, is preparing to take on Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor, who also has expressed wish to see re-election from the constituency.

    The BJP is ahead of other parties in choosing its candidates. It has already come to an understanding on candidates for most of the 20 constituencies in the State, though formal announcement will be made only later.

    If your enemy countries speak against a particular PM candidate of your country then it means that he is the best candidate. Here Pakistan and Pakistanis are specifically speaking against Modi and it means that they are afraid of him and we should support Modi as a PM.

    Diplomats from 35 foreign missions to attend Modi's Delhi rally

    Diplomats from around 35 foreign missions are likely to attend Narendra Modi's rally in New Delhi on Sunday but the US Embassy and the British High Commission have conveyed to BJP they will not be able to honour the invite. BJP Overseas Cell Convenor Vijay Jolly said he had sent invitations to over 50 foreign missions out of which 36 have confirmed their participation. "The US Embassy has informed us that Ambassador Nancy Powell is in the Washington and she will not be able to honour the invite. British High Commissioner James Bevan is also travelling abroad. So he will not also be able to attend the rally," Goel said.

    BJP had invited the US Ambassador to Modi's rally notwithstanding the denial of visa to the Gujarat Chief Minister by the US. After Modi was anointed BJP's prime ministerial candidate on September 14, the US had said there was no change in its visa policy with regard to the BJP leader and that he was welcome to apply for the same. In 2005, the US had denied Modi a diplomatic visa and revoked his existing tourist/business visa over allegations of human rights violations during the 2002 riots in Gujarat. Britain had ended its decade-long boycott of Modi nearly a year ago but maintained that engagement with the Gujarat Chief Minister was not an endorsement of him. Jolly said invitations for the rally have been sent to embassies of various European countries, African nations and countries in the neighbourhood. He, however, said no invitation was sent to Pakistan High Commission. "I am happy about positive response to our invitation to the rally by various foreign embassies. 36 embassies have so far conveyed to us that diplomats representing their countries will attend the rally. We have invited them as Modi has a global outreach," Jolly added.

    Senior Bihar JD(U) MLA Chhedi Paswan meets Narendra Modi


    @Singh , remember I told you the day Nitish Kumar expands his cabinet he will face the music? He has not done it till now but it seems there going to be few exchanges between BJP and JDU in Bihar.

    The so called unbiased India Media showed the cold vibes between L.K Advani and Narendra Modi during Bhopal rally in slow motion, but I am not sure why they did not show what happened after Modi's speech!!

    To,
    Narendra Modi
    BJP's prime ministerial candidate

    Subject: Reservation for High IQ (Lazy) Indians.

    Mr. Narendra 'Maut-ka-sudagar' Modi,

    I would like to congratulate you on your elevation from a 'Maut ka Saudagar' to 2014 Prime Ministerial Candidate of the India's second largest political party.

    Now coming to the real deal, I demand 15% Reservation for Indians with IQ 130+ in Public Sector as a statutory objective to ensure a level playing field vis-a-vis hardworking Low IQ good for nothing Indians. The presence of 'grade' based selection system has impeded these (Lazy) High IQ Indians from getting past Low IQ Indians and i blame this for below par performance of our defence and manufacturing sector. These High IQ Indians are 'Atheists' thus can be assumed to be followers of Mimamsa and Samkhya and are technically 'Hindus' who can be groped along with other suppressed communities.

    The added value of this move would be that more hard-working low IQ individuals would be forced to find jobs in Private Sector thus contributing to Indian Economy and not being indolent in their air-conditioned PSU offices.

    You have my vote if you agree to fulfil this demand when (if ever) you become PM of India, Mr.Modi.

    Cordially,
    Apollyon (Senior Member at DFI)

    The Congress is in power for last 15 years in Delhi but I am not sure why they are doing negative campaigning (below mentioned) .

    Any way all the best to Congress and their Diggy style. I am loving it.

    This is very direct charge. With each day he is going all guns against central govt. Also there were rumours that they may "fix" him in some case.

    This man spoke at Hyderabad, Riwari, Jaipur, Bhopal, Trichy, Delhi, Mumbai, and Kerala in last 3 weeks. The audience were diverse and topics were diverse. We have very few leaders in India who can talk extempore like Mr. MODI. Many people call him Feku, but I am getting addicted to listen to him. I do not know whether he will become the next PM or not but I would always look forward to his speech.

    Just an awesome speech at IAA’s Platinum Jubilee Global Marketing Summit, Mumbai.
