Congress lauds Narendra Modi in newspaper advertisement


Quote:
A pull-out by Congress, distributed with newspapers on the Republic Day in some parts of the state, features Modi's photograph, and describes him as 'a master organiser and astute election strategist'.
The two-page advert tries to say that Gujarat has been a progressive state from its birth, and seeks to highlight contribution of all the chief minsters of the state, including Modi.
State assembly elections are scheduled to be held in December, and campaigning has almost begun. With yesterday's pull-out, the opposition party seems to have committed a self-goal.
The advert informs the readers that 'a master organiser, his party's topmost functionary and astute election strategist Shri Narendrabhai Modi became the Chief Minister of Gujarat on October 7 2001'.

Red faced cong seeks to find the in-house culprit responsible for the gaffe



Quote:
Puts Up Poor Defence, Calls Ad Sarcastic
TIMES NEWS NETWORK


New Delhi: With the BJP gleefully pouncing upon its gaffe in putting out an advertisement praising its arch- political foe Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, a red-faced Congress scrambled to play down the matter.

MoS for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Shukla claimed on Saturday that the poster was actually a putdown directed against Modi by arguing that his performance paled before the scorecard of Gujarat CMs belonging to Congress. “It was a dig”, said Shukla endorsing the line taken by Gujarat PCC chief Arjun Modwadia that a sarcastic attack was being read as a praise.

Others in the party argued that it was only an attempt to show a non-partisan testimonial to all CMs and there were others from BJP like Keshubhai Patel and Suresh Mehta in that list. However, even as Congress leaders said the sarcasm had been missed, BJP moved in to capitalize on the issue. BJP leader Arun Jaitley rubbed it in, saying it was a good start to Gujarat poll campaign slated for December.

Congress leaders are also worried about the reaction of its “secular” rivals in UP , SP and BSP, who rarely miss an opportunity to target it for its “softness” towards the BJP.

Gujarat Congress had brought out a supplement on the occasion of the Republic Day which profiled all CMs. It also included Modi, who was called a good organizer and administrator. The advert astonished rivals and party workers alike, turning Congress into the butt of BJP jokes.

Sources said that Congress leadership was livid with the state leadership over the bungle, which has given the BJP an issue to embarrass the party in the run-up to the polls. Congress leaders said they would fix the responsibility of those who cleared the draft of the advertisement, for not blanking out Modi—the party’s principal enemy.

They didn't intend to praise Modi, but they did. Why can't they just say it was unintentional? Instead, they construct a far-fetched theory to account for what happened. I don't know who would believe that it was a dig.

Funny cartoon though.

Re: Congress lauds Narendra Modi in newspaper advertisement

Why are they tracking back In fact, as the party in the center it should have capitalized this as a record of their fair-mindedness... and shown it as an incentive to any state government in the country. You do your state good... and the center will appreciate and reward it, no matter what party has formed the government.

This is how all the Bharatiya political parties are. When shit happens, they immediately rush to make up some implausible explanations, like we see above.

Sometimes a reporter will get a neta ji's statement on tape in a moment of candor, and later they may not like that statement; so then they twist and turn that statement and try to put some bizarre spin on it.

This kind of thing is not particular to any one party; the whole crowd is like that. That's how the political culture is.
