In recent surveys done in urban belts of India Narendra Modi has emerged as most preferred candidate for post of Prime Minister of India. He got 39% votes among people survey. Though urban belt and especially middle class votes means little in Indian politics which sees poor and rural belt voting in huge numbers who have traditionally shown inclination towards congress.
Never the less , with most corrupted government ever in form of upa-2 governing India , people are bound to seek alternative and in form of Narendra Modi , many see a strong ,intentional leader who can take India to next level as far as economics , security , growth is concerned.
But as it is often seen , congress has been fortunate to have opposition who become over ambitious with their personal goals when they see tide turning their way. BJP seems to be no different.
Seeing cornered upa-2 , bjp is optimistic for 2014 polls. Quiet optimistic. But at same time who should be their leader is seeing lot of camps being formed inside BJP!!!!!…Seeing narendra modi rise , his rival camps are forming strategies to make sure narendra modi doesnot emerge as number 1 leader of BJP.
The mysterious poster supporting narendra modi’s rival and RSS man sanjay joshi made headlines in India. Praising sanjay joshi the poster questioned policy of BJP…
If narendra modi is facing hitch in national level , he is facing rivals in gujarat in terms of sidelined BJP leaders , ex bjp leaders and even sections in RSS.
The rival group is led by ex chief minister of gujarat Mr kesubhai patel. Narendra Modi was made chief minister of gujarat ,after kesubhai patel was asked to vacate the post by BJP highcommand way back in 2000..The rival group led by kesubhai patel includes ex chief minister suresh mehta, ex homeminister jadapia (who is not president of party he formed) and sidelined leaders of BJP. Recently the group had meeting which was attended by RSS man too!!!!!!!!!
The rival camp is planning to celebrate birthday of kesu bhai in july end in big way , where they would be inviting even congress guys . The celebration would be held under umbrella of padidar samaj . Patels form huge community in gujarat and kesubhai intends to build on community card.
Narendra Modi’s another opposition comes from activists like mukul sinha , tessta who are following court’s route to fight narendra modi. Sanjiv bhatt too can be considered in this category. This category also includes malika sarabhai (daughter of celebrated vikram sarabhai).
Another camp which is working against Narendra Modi is local media. They are smartest player in the game. Instead of attacking modi directly , they are daily coming up with news which questions administration in one way or other. For e.g. recently there was robbery in minister’s home (her personal home and not official one) , headlines read BJP Government can protect minister’s home. Another e.g. Ahmedabad is seeing major turn around in road ,bridges where in many over bridges/under bridges are coming up. As a result entire ahmedabad seems to have been dugged up. Work is pathetically slow in most places. News headlines : BJP’s raaj gives aam aadmi headache in traveling…
While its good that media highlights government’s shortcomings and it is job of media to do so , however daily one piece of news written in highly critical manner seems to be inducing something in brains of readers and considering major investment of big 3 media houses of gujarat in real estate , it smells politics in news …
It is do or die battle of modi in upcoming elections in gujarat. All political pundits predict victory of narendra modi , though most believe that his seats would get reduced. Narendra modi has dealt with media , dealt with rebels , dealt with rivals and dealt congress before too in gujarat. Everytime he has come victorious but this time he has not only to deal with all of them , he has to deal with sections of RSS in national level and sections of BJP in national level.
This battle would decide not only narendra modi’s future but also future of BJP and its positioning before elections 2014…It is do or die battle for future of modi not in guarat but in national level..
