Dr Manmohan singh , the current prime minister of India is most probably serving his last term as prime minister. He would seek retirement in next election unless madam feels he is still needed by gandhi clan and rahul gandhi is not ready!!!!!!!
As congress’s reet sada chali aayi (not sada but after Indira) , gandhi clan has one right over post of prime minister , Rahul baba would be most likely choosen one for the post of prime minister for 2014 but 2g , cvc,adarsh,common wealth might spoil the party for congress in next election and we would be having NDA government at center. There are still three long years and none can say who would form government but let us list down people who can sit of the hot seat.
1) Rahul Gandhi :
Year before brits took over India , there was only three criterias to become surve sarva of an empire. The first criteria was ability to gain respect from army and associates. The second criteria was ability to curb rebels and third criteria was to belong to special family (heir of king). After 25 years of Independence as Indira took over the criteria number 3 became most important to become prime minister of India when congress gets majority.
Rahul baba has the most important surname of India with him. Like shashi kapoor’s famous dialogue of deewar ‘mera paas maa hai’ , rahul gandhi ke paas gandhi surname hai. Other than that he has shown will and intent. He lacks experience of governing a department , forget country but he would be persuaded by congress men to become pm in 2014.
2) Sushma Swaraj :
Currently opposition leader in loksabha , sushma is good orator , does her home work well , is fearless . She would face tussle within the party itself but can be NDA’s candidate for 2014 . Yes if and only if Mr prime minister is waiting (always) lal krishna advani allows her to be candidate. Who know’s at age of 85 our dear lal krishna bhai would want to become pm?. But for NDA to actually come to power , they need to have an impactful politics which can make people trust them. Congress doesnot win because it is best party in the world , it wins because it doesnot have competition. People are tired of corruption and scams of upa but they still trust them more than others.
3) Nitish Kumar :
I personally believe that if NDA really wants to win in 2014 , they should project nitish kumar as their candidate for prime ministerial post of 2014. He is Mr clean , efficient and has faith from all communities.
4) Narendra Modi :
His name is synonyms of controversy. He is efficient leader , is fast and can get impossible things done. He knows how to work in public-private partnership and during his term Gujarat has seen unprecedented growth. Having said that his name is associated with one of worst riots of India and he wont get much of minority votes . BJP would loose out in bihar , up and many other places if narendra modi is projected as prime minister.
5) Mayawati :
The internal survey conducted by congress for up , states that if elections are held today in up , mayawati would win more seats than she did in last election. That is behn mayawati , one may love her or hate her but no one can ignore her. She too is prime minister candidate for third front which pops up at time of elections only. Though nation in unlikely to go for third front and would settle for upa or nda , she still remains as potential candidate.
The above are most likely candidates but who should be prime minister of 2014?. Well here is list of people who must and should take charge.
1) Kiran Bedi:
No nonsense kiran bedi is actually perfect candidate for taking India forward. Having impeccable integrity , Kiran bedi has vast experience of working with the system which is corrupted , manipulative. Yet she delivered remaining in the system without compromising her integrity. Unfortunately Indian voters still vote of caste , religion basis and Kiran bedi is neither politician , nor has party . I guess we should have direct election for prime minister who in turn can choose his/her ministers from parliament.
2) Narayan Murthy :
Another man with high integrity, narayan is perfect candidate who can make India thrive economically and come out from clutches of caste , poverty.
3) Abdul Kalam :
Yes I know this is not russia . Abdul Kalam was president of India and president’s garima might come in way for him becoming prime minister. But the man who is most trusted by Indians is natural leader , not be means of his ability to talk but by means of his ability to think .
Unfortunately in India intellectuals dont win elections. They are sent to rajya sabha. Intelligence does not appeal to people as much as orators do. Caste , religion , region are background based on which elections occur. The consequence of that is the people who should become prime minister never make it into parliament and people who become prime minister have their limitations and compulsions!!!!!!
