    Would prefer Sushma as PM rather than Modi, says Digvijaya

    New Delhi: In unexpected comments, Congress leader Digvijay Singh, a known Narendra Modi baiter,today said the Gujarat CM was moving away from his "fanatic" ideology and that "even a chaiwallah can become the Prime Minister", which were promptly welcomed by BJP as praise for its PM candidate. Singh said that he "welcomes that Modi is gradually distancing from his fanatic ideology and gravitating towards the ideology of Atal Bihari Vajpayee" and "it should be welcomed if Sangh and the BJP...are coming close to the ideology of Congress and (Jawaharlal) Nehru." He, however, added that "Modi will not be acceptable to people of India" and he would prefer Sushma Swaraj to him "if god forbid BJP comes to power".

    Responding to criticism that Congress is fine with the party being in the hands of a family and some special people calling the shots but does not like common workers rising as in the BJP, Singh said it was not true. He said in a democracy "if a shepherd from Kerala can become President so also a tea-vendor (chaiwallah) can become Prime Minister", remarks which were seen as a reference to Modi's humble origins. BJP leader Smriti Irani latched on to the comments saying "we had not thought that Digvijay Singh will say that even a chaiwallah can become Prime Minister...I am happy that Modi ji is being praised so much by Digvijay Singh ji." At this, Singh said, "Nobody is untouchable in democracy irrespective of the family he is born in, whether it is poor or rich." The Congress leader at the same time said that Modi is "not a factor" for Congress and that while Vajpayee and Sushma Swaraj can be acceptable "Modi will not be acceptable to people of India" as the country's basic temperament is one that favours communal harmony. He was speaking at the 'Agenda Aaj Tak 2013; -- a two-day conclave of India Today Group that began here yesterday. He also rubbished the exit poll results of assembly elections in the five states and refused to accept it as some sort of a semi final for the next Lok Sabha elections.

    One does not understand why the issue of a person who used to sell tea should be an issue for the post of becoming a PM or for that matter holding any elected political office.

    Digvijay Singh calls himself a Raja. If indeed he is one as he claims, then his ancestors were despots who tortured the people and lived off their hard work and gave them only poverty and sorrow. Hardly a man fit to be a CM that he was.

    Likewise, the Scindias. And to top it all, these Maharajas and so called Rajas were all bootlickers of the British.

    Hardly the type who can then talk of nationalism or eve governance.

    If one heard last night's BIG FIGHT, just hear Mani Shankar Aiyer, who bootlicked shamelessly the youngster Rahul Gandhi.

    Check from 24:44



    So, sycophancy is OK to become a PM/Minsiter!

    Sushma Swaraj though a great orator was not much of a success as CM of Delhi. OTOH Modi is known to be a great administrator as well as a leader who leads by example and who has been re-elected thrice in a row as Gujarat CM for good reason by the wise voters of that state !

    No marks for guessing why Diggi Raja and many others would prefer anyone other than Narendra Modi as PM of India !

    But is it fair to denigrate anyone because he sold tea at railway stations?

    I remain marvelled that a seller can have such insight and acumen to govern.

    Making such classicist statements in a poor country like India? :facepalm: Mani Shankar Aiyer is an idiot and a repulsive human being.

    Re: Those born in high families consider insult to fight polls vs chai

    Mani Shankar was a son of a chartered accountant.

    His schooling in Doon School was also 'negotiated'.

    Aiyar's mother had to negotiate with Doon to allow him to continue his studies with reduced fees and in return she taught at the school.

    Therefore, is he a 'handout', panhandling case who has pretension to high born?

    And he has kept that mode of being accepted by society by cringing & extracting favours of those in power. Left IFS to be a politician by oiling schoolmate Rajiv Gandhi and then when he was rejected by the people, having lost the election, oiled, squirmed and kowtowed his way through the backdoor to the Rajya Sabha as a nominated member of 'eminence'.

    Congress being Congress, eminence for Aiyer was his filthy tongue!

    Water finds its own course!

    Was kicked out as a Minister and went out of circulation even in the Congress.

    But squirmed and oiled his way to get some pat from Rahul to then do what he is best at being - a guttersnipe!

    The media noticed that there was a political content in the New Delhi rally but they are totally ignoring the vision Modi has put forth. Times Now is questioning Piyush Goyal on why the vision is not there, why NAREGA is not referred to, whether BJP will keep it to shelve it.

    More than half the time the Chaiwala was speaking about socio-economic vision but for the Media only NAREGA is vision. The Infrastructure, Family values, Youth bulge, Agricultural planning are all time pass.

    If a chaiwala can do that and the Ivy league wala can manage only a NAREGA, then there is hardly any choice there.


    The Ivy League wins.:rolleyes:

    :lol: Dogvijay, how about deciding on a PM candidate for your own party? and then perhaps offer advice to other parties.

    Aiyer is a burned out commie who jumped onto secular wagon when things started to go bad for communism.

    Mani Shankar Aiyar's remark about "chaiwalla" indicates growing frustration and despair. He should respect dignity of labor and dignity of human beings.
    He simply has BAD attitude.

    Re: Those born in high families consider insult to fight polls vs chai

    It's horrible to see a senior Congress Leader making such low level shallow comments against a 3 time PM of Gujrat who WOULD be a PM soon.

    And he even refuses in a a fit of rage that he would not apologize for his comment which shows he is a dalla and knows he has nothing to fight against MODI and accepted defeat.

    I now really HOPE MODI wins and keep Mani Shankar as his chaiwala.

    Before anyone makes a self-goal beating congrassis with a stick for the comments, the comment "born in high families vs chaiwala" was made by modi, not doggy raja.
