Thumbs up Advantage Modi!

Before he won the Gujarat elections in Dec 2012 (and for much time after that), my knowledge of Narendra Modi was mostly nothing beyond he being a BJP politician and Gujarat CM for the 3rd term. Yes, I had knowledge about train burning at Godhra and the riots which followed.

But in the last few months, this guy has really impressed me. And apparently taken the nation by storm too. Never has one person impressed me so much in such a short span of time.

The way he is touring India and holding rallies in different cities every day (literally), I am amazed at his mental & physical energy levels at the age of 63.

Certain quotes and comments he made were 'original' for me i.e. I had not heard of that version earlier (I consider myself to be one of the most updated guys in such things).

Please list some quotes/comments/actions/etc by him which you liked. Or any factors which place NaMo into an advantageous position vis-a-vis others.

Re: Advantage Modi!

First one was when he made front-page news for his speech at SRCC(Delhi) in Feb 2013. His 'third point of view' was novel.

Re: Advantage Modi!

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance" was said following Chinese incursions. Rarely does a politician remind us of something good or novel. I was glad to see hear this meaningful quote from Namo. Cant imagine a Lalu or a Mullayam saying something like this.

yes. It is not difficult to see through the bol-bachchan of politicians. The more they speak the more BS they deliver. But Namo is speaking quite a lot with quite a lot of clarity. Thats different.

When Modi created an opportunity from embarassment:

Re: Advantage Modi!

Modi's speech at Delhi rally was also good.He inspite of being a critic of UPA govt strongly condemned Nawaz Sharif for his remarks against Manmohan Singh.
He here proved that Indian politicians may have differences of opinion but will respond collectively to abuses by people across the border.

Do we still have to wait to hear from Rahul Gandhi condemning the Nawaz Sharif attack on the PM ?

Re: Advantage Modi!

His speech at Delhi
"Nawaz Sharif, ye aapki kaun si aukat hai which allowed you call Singh dehati aurat (how did Nawaz muster the courage to say this). There cannot be a bigger insult of India and its prime minister. This nation of 1.25 billion will not tolerate its prime minister's insult," Modi thundered, egged on by the rambunctious crowd.


PM humiliated at home so insulted abroad: Narendra Modi


NEW DELHI: BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday seized upon Rahul Gandhi's public denunciation of PM Manmohan Singh and his government and said that it had encouraged Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif to make purportedly derisive comments about Singh.

At a well-attended rally here, the Gujarat chief minister brought up Sharif's purported remark likening Singh to a "village woman", and said this was unacceptable. "Nawaz Sharif, ye aapki kaun si aukat hai which allowed you call Singh dehati aurat (how did Nawaz muster the courage to say this). There cannot be a bigger insult of India and its prime minister. This nation of 1.25 billion will not tolerate its prime minister's insult," Modi thundered, egged on by the rambunctious crowd.

Stating that Singh was a "sardar but not asardar" (impactful), Modi said Sharif was emboldened to pass snide remarks about the PM because he was facing attacks from his own party, referring to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi dismissing an ordinance passed by the government as nonsense.

"In crude language, I just want to say that Congress vice-president ne pagdi uchaal di hai (Singh has been humiliated by)," Modi said.

While he played the statesman recently at Rewari, a dusty Haryana neck of the woods, on Sunday Modi chose to showcase his transformation into a dyed-in-the-wool nationalist. The barely 80-odd km distance between Rewari and Rohini, where he addressed yet another sea of humanity, was not a deterrent.

It seemed Modi was carrying out a course correction after he was seen as being soft on Pakistan in Rewari. He also spoke about getting back PoK from under Pakistan's control.

Many will find it amusing that while Modi chose to be soft on Pakistan in Rewari, a rally organized for former Army men, here he actually said that Singh's authority had been undermined at a time when he needed to ask Pakistan to free PoK from under its control. He said the widows of slain soldiers wanted Singh to bring back the remains of beheaded soldiers.

As he engaged the crowds, who forced him to stop several times with chants of "Modi Modi", the Gujarat CM tried to show himself as above partisan politics by asking people to raise their voice in support of the PM ahead of his crucial meeting with Sharif. He said despite his differences with Singh, he would not tolerate any insult to the PM from abroad.

He said the country needed to decide whether the writ of the Constitution or shahzade, a term he used repeatedly to describe Rahul, was going to prevail. Going by the way Rahul is behaving, he said, "pariwarshahi (family) is smothering lokshahi (democracy)".

Modi sought to rub it in further when he recalled Singh's earlier statement that he was willing to work under Rahul. "I now want to ask the other Congress stalwarts if they want to follow the Constitution or shahzade," he said.

Moving on to his favoured corruption theme against the government, Modi said the country was suffering because of the series of scams on the UPA's watch. "This government is mired in corruption. Instead of finding solutions to problems, it has stopped functioning. This government is paralyzed. The UPA government is immersed in Gandhi-bhakti. The Gandhi-bhakti refers to currency notes which they are collecting in tonnes," he said.

He went on, "There are governments within governments... maa ki sarkar, bete ki sarkar... damaad ki sarkar... coalition partners ki sarkar."

'PM marketed poverty in US'

However, Modi received almost maniacal response when he came down on the PM for describing India as a poor country before US President Barack Obama. He accused the PM of glorifying and selling India's poverty. "He met Obama and said 'Obama ji, I have come from India... garib desh ka PM hoon'. Instead of grovelling like that, why couldn't the PM just say that I have come from a country where 65% of the people are below 35 years of age? Matha sharam se jhuk jata hai (I'm forced to hang my head in shame)," Modi said.

"You behaved just like those filmmakers who sell India's poverty in the West to win awards," he said. Taking it further, he sought to know from the PM if he was actually referring to India's actual poverty, as seen on the streets, or poverty as a state of mind. "Because as per the shahzade's definition, poverty is a state of mind," he said, in yet another jibe at Rahul.

Modi said the BJP had made its position amply clear about the ordinance on convicted politicians sent by the Congress to President Pranab Mukherjee.

Modi seemed overwhelmed in the end as he complimented his party and ordinary workers for making his rise possible. Modi seemed to have a lump in his throat as he paused, wiped the sweat (some said tears) off his face and said he was just an ordinary guy who used to serve tea in trains. "Nath (owner) nahi, das (servant) hoon. Look into my past and trust my work," he said, signing off with frenzied cries of Vande Mataram.

Re: Advantage Modi!

On a topic related to PSUs going kapoot, NaMo said "It is not Government's business to do business".

That was bingo. The Govt is not there to compete and beat others commercially. It is there to create a conducive environment, to facilitate businesses to grow, ensure fair competition etc. You cant be the creator of the game and compete in it. You cant have the cake and eat it too.

I think everyone knows this but it had to be NaMo to put it in words.

I wish he becomes PM, not because I expect him to perform miracles, it is not possible with Indians, "Jab har aera gaira PM banne ki soch rakhta hai, toh modi toh sabse better hai "

Re: Advantage Modi!

Being a Gujju is an advantage for NaMo. He is neither a northie nor a southie nor some other thie.

That is playing a positive role in increasing his acceptability pan India.

He went the extra mile and started his speech in Marathi in Mumbai, Telugu in AP etc.

I did not hear his recent speech in TN (Trichy). But as per the news, the crowd was something witnessed by AIADMK and DMK only.

Watch him wishing Onam in Malyalam to Keralites:
