Attributing Congress’ poor show in Delhi Assembly polls to losing touch with common people, Rahul Gandhi accepted that the party has deeply understood this and promised to include people from the grass-root level in the party after Lok Sabha Elections. In one of the rallies in the poll period in Delhi, when Rahul reached four hour late after scheduled time and begun his speech, the crowd had started leaving the place, then Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who was sharing the dais with Rahul, was recorded on camera asking people not to leave the ground. People of Delhi has seen 15 years of Congress rule of development and also seen 49 days of “anarchist” rule where the government made false promises. They have also seen eight years of “corrupt” BJP-led MCD rule. The party, which has failed in removing corruption from a small organisation like MCD, is talking about removing corruption from the country. Rahul is maturing with time, and it is good to see his brighter side. He has come out of all inhibitions to take the lead but still he needs to learn a lot.
This time voting would be cast between rural and urban population, between traditional voters and educated voters, between Hindu and secular voters. Rahul Gandhi cannot be future Prime Minister of this country because Congress has always sidelined important, popular and fair leaders who have public following. People really respect some of the senior Congress leaders irrespective of party liking and disliking, whereas they find Modi as an alternative, now. Those who really dislike BJP are now willing to vote for the party, just because of Modi. BJP is zero without Modi and Congress is zero without the Gandhi family. They follow because of their loyalties towards that particular family. Probably, Congress is committing the biggest mistake by promoting Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate.
Rahul Gandhi is in his learning stage and he has to learn many things about politics from his Gurus, Sonia Gandhi (she walked the political path with Indira and Rajiv Gandhi) and Manmohan Singh as he claimed that he has two gurus in politics. He is saying that the most important quality in a politician is intent. If the intent is not correct then nothing can be achieved, but unfortunately none of the Congress ministers including Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi have a clear intention towards this country. Whenever Rahul reaches to deliver speeches in different states, he changes his Gurus. Sometimes he claims to follow Mahatma Gandhi and sometime he says he follows his mother and Manmohan Singh. He was in Punjab and recently he insulted Prime Minister over the ordinance aimed to protect the interests of convicted MPs and MLAs, may be this is the reason he tried making it up by parsing MMS. Mother is every child’s teacher; Sonia can be his teacher by birth but as such in Indian politics, there is nothing much that Sonia has contributed to set an example. Rahul needs to grow; he has just began to approach people by addressing masses without reading his script. Just being an angry man or using harsh terms, he cannot be proved to be an aggressive Prime Ministerial Candidate. He and his family members are being followed by secular Hindus.
Modi speaks extempore and always talks about national issues addressing the growth of his state. Most of the time, he attacks Congress for its political errors. He informs the masses keeping them ahead. Nowadays, Rahul tries to talk without paper but somewhere lacks the vocabulary to make his voice reach out to people, though Congress has a solid vote bank. Modi could win by the strong Hindu votes; Hindus can’t be vote bank but definitely are in majority. There are many published poll surveys, but these surveys do not sound relevant as Indian election process is indirect. Main stream media talk about Modi as a leading candidature of Prime ministerial job but getting taking prediction for granted would be foolishness. As we all know, BJP might be a single largest party but without alliance, it cannot form government at the centre and many alliance parties already sidelined themselves over Modi’s elevation. He might be the best choice, but BJP doesn’t have strong foothold. BJP has its grip over restricted states like Gujarat, MP, Punjab, Chhattisgarh and Bihar. It has no faithful collaborator other than Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and Akali Dal in Punjab. The fact is that, it would not be very difficult to predict Modi, besides Gandhi does not have India’s approval. Both are projected big by their keyboard samurais on social network. Moreover, there is no comparison between Modi and Gandhi. One is a seasoned politician who has seen decades here and another one is born into a political family and just took his baby steps here. Choice between these two is not much complex or even easy for common people.
Rahul was connected with Congress as he has been a part of UPA-I & II. Till today in last ten years, he failed to bring changes in the party. How he will create magic now? How can an intelligent Indian trust Congress or Rahul who in spite of being in power made only fake promises? They separated states, look at burning Andhra Pradesh. They divided society in the name of minority appeasement; recently he addressed Dalits. Every time they divide people over caste, creed, religion and state. Rahul or his Guru ‘Maiyya’ has not given any remarkable contribution towards this country. They passed many bills, but when times came for execution, then files landed in disaster. Aadhar card is one of the greatest examples. Crores of rupees were wasted on these projects. Name any one party which has done extraordinarily for this country on national and state level? The 2014 General Election is very vital for the nation.
Recently, Rahul spoke about Food Security Bill, Right to Education and Right to Information Act. But, whenever the RTI was filed against Sonia Gandhi and Robert Vadra, same Congress refused to co-operate. Taking decision and actually executing it are two different aspects. In India, many people starve even today. No food, shelter or security are provided to them. Streets are overcrowded with beggars and poor people. Women are abused, young girls are getting raped, and lots of corruption is practiced in almost every government sectors. God knows, what Congress has actually done for people than keeping the bills in files!
Rahul not only lacks experience but also promotes dynasty politics. A majority of people are looking for a clean and capable government. Narendra Modi has proved himself. Modi scores on merits, he did his best for economy, clean government and comprehensive leadership. Gandhi has one quality and that is dynasty. It is up to you people to choose your leader.
