“In a hierarchy, every employee tends
to rise to his level of incompetence”
That principle by educationist Laurence J Peter is mostly true but also has many exceptions. Dramatic directional efforts have also resulted in greater performances by individuals taking on higher responsibilities. This is the trust that voters invested in Narendra Modi. He was voted PM based on his performances in Gujarat and also the vision he communicated well throughout many election campaigns. That he was also vilified by the Sickulars and media for being a Hindutva icon and for the 2002 riots helped him gain sympathy across India. It is many of his speeches in Gujarat (mostly made in Hindu to cater to the national audience) that made him an inevitable choice for the BJP PM candidate. It would be excessive to imagine the “development agenda” alone got NaMo the extraordinary support in LS2014. His being consistently viewed as a Hindutva icon, often referred to as the “Hindu Hriday Samrat” also played a big part. Modi also had been happy in portraying himself as such and calling himself a “Hindu Nationalist”.
On his last day in the Gujarat Assembly in May 2014 Modi was requested by his old friend Shankarsinh Vaghela, now in the Congress since long, to build the Ram Mandir. But I haven’t heard Modi mentioning the temple ever since he became PM. The last I remember him mentioning it was after the 2010 Allahabad HC verdict. Nothing after. Whenever Subramaniam Swamy raised the temple issue he was invariably snubbed. However, come UP2017 Amit Shah again grandly promises a Ram Mandir as part of the agenda. Some of the campaign promises that Modi made in his 2014 campaign speeches are:
# Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas (SSSV)
# Packing up and sending back illegal Bangladeshis
# Bringing back black money stashed abroad
# That people not only wanted corrupt thrown out but also punished. Modi promised this.
Modi has been largely successful in the SSSV agenda of his and that has earned him national and international laurels. And deservedly so. As someone who has fought the criminal media for long over their campaign of vilification of Modi through this blog-site, it does perturb me over his constant neglect of social causes and issues, especially where Hindus and Hindu issues are concerned. Politics across the world is dominated by economics, growth and employment but social issues are strongly woven into electoral outcomes. Since he became PM, Modi went across the country and the world giving great bladder-rocking speeches to large audiences. The euphoria was almost akin to Beatlemania. ModiSlaves even started calling him a Rockstar. It is what transpired in almost 3 years since he became PM that is stunning. Modi has shied away from taking any major Hindutva related decision or repealing any anti-Hindu policy.
World over Fiberals are falling and right wing is rising. There is no real right wing in India but the closest clone is BJP and Modi had acquired the reputation of a hardliner. Since Gujarat, there is nothing hardline or RW about Modi. Thus, when Donald Trump became President of the US and start taking tough, unpalatable decisions the comparison with Modi became inevitable. Let me assert – Modi is nothing like Trump. Modi is far more measured and far more sober as a politician, But it’s Modi’s unwillingness to act on his pre-election promises as against Trump where he comes a cropper. Trump got busy from day 1 implementing his agenda. With Modi many of his most ardent slaves are confused on what his agenda is. When Modi is criticized on his slowness, the ModiSlaves usually come up with silly nonsense like “You don’t know Modi – he’s a Chanakya” or “You just wait – Modi has an ace up his sleeve”. This balderdash by ModiSlaves who think they read his mind while in their toilets is even more comic.
However, privately, even the greatest ModiSlaves cannot help admitting that Modi is different from the guy we knew from Gujarat or the guy from the 2014 election campaign. Some loosely suggest that he’s seeking a Nobel, which is silly. Some say he now wants to be a statesman, which Modi never will be remembered as. Some say he has just become too obsessed with his own image. In the past I have written caution-notes titled “Goody two shoes” or “Tiger light, clay feet”. I fear my worst imagination is coming true. With great power comes greater responsibility and Modi has worn that responsibility with great dignity. But with greater power or responsibility your fundamental beliefs and principles cannot be thrown to the winds. Read these words carefully:
So Congress can cater to Ramzan-based actions. Okay! Child producing centres? Okay! Hum paanch, humare pachees? Okay! And those who are multiplying population will have to learn a lesson. Ahem! So if Sakshi Maharaj talks about Muslim population explosion the BJP distances him. But that was the Modi of Gujarat in 2002. Today, Modi says 65% of our population is made of youth that are ass-ets. Population control can go to hell. Count a blessing by Mahatma Modi! Hindus are driven out of West UP or Bengal or Kerala. But hey, I am now PM so my principle beliefs can also change. In case of Modi, it doesn’t corrupt him. It makes him a bigger Nehru than Nehru was. Don’t take my word for it. None other than Modi’s photo-op seeking Lutyens Dalal wrote “Modi is our most Nehruvian PM since Nehru”. Holy cow! CHACHA RETURNS!
Shekhar “Wheeler Dealer” Gupta may have blabbered in routine Lutyens tongue but I am now seriously thinking that Modi wants to be remembered the way Fiberals cherish Nehru. The desire to be accepted by the worst scumbags in Lutyens, Commie media or across the world seems to drive Modi. It is here that Trump has come across as a maverick politician willing and daring to break shackles and Modi is failing. It is easy to puff up your chest in Hindu-dominated Gujarat and dare to tell the truth about worthless Madrassas (And Shiva only knows what they teach – I don’t):
Now that you have the power why are these useless Madrassas still being doled out to eternity? Why not demand they get to mainstream education? It’s worse when many of them disrespect our country, our Constitution and even our national anthem. You don’t have to be a Hindutva icon to demand Muslims commit their allegiance to this country. That’s what Trump did. And Trump did not seek Muslims to become Christians either. He just seeks commitment to America. But what does our Chacha blabber? He goes on to say “Islam is a religion of peace”. In 2001 Modi was the first to accept the term “Islamic terror” in an NDTV show with Rajdeep Sardesai. And now? Why such hypocrisy? You qualify to be Chacha! You have fallen to the deception while Trump had the marbles to take a call on Muslim terror threat like no world leader ever did. India has been the worst victim of Islamic terror. Nobody even sought Hindutva from you. They only sought a level-playing field for all Indians.
Kejri, Pappu, Nobrain, Lechury all rush to Hyderabad or Dadri to lament over a lynching or the cowardly suicide by Vemula. Over the fake Christians under attack campaign you set up a Christian helpline. But unending murders of Hindus, destruction of their temples and homes, wiping out towns of Hindu existence doesn’t bother you. But you weep in a function over a coward called Vemula. Birthdays, anniversaries, anthems for T-20 or sports – everything gets Modi’s attention EXCEPT Hindus being slaughtered. Hindu Hriday Samrat, please explain this:
While the Opposition rushed to every spot to create a “Hindu intolerance” nonsense, Modi just watched in utter wimpishness the slaughter of Hindus. Your duffer Venkiah Naidu blabbers about some Bhansali attack without knowing facts. Modi is more bothered about how Hindu-haters view him than how Hindus love him. What gives? Not one tweet or condemnation from Modi over the Kerala or Bengal killings or riots. And yet another one:
The comparison with Trump happens because he is clear about his conviction and intent on issues he promised action. Chacha Modi has lost his way in trying to be Goody Two Shoes. And the ModiSlaves keep on defending his slumber and failure. Modi could have visited families of Hindus killed in Kerala or Bengal and made a strong speech. Commie Pigs in these states cannot stop the PM’s visit as they stop others. Modi himself has experience of ABV and Prez Kalam visiting during 2002. What stops you? Do you care? Your visit and strong statements could have made a difference. You chose to keep counseling students of which there is no real need when there are million other psychologists and counselors doing the job. What’s worse? You have never been a parent nor attempted a competitive exam to be offering such counseling. Take good note of that.
As a staunch supporter I am truly disappointed at your stupid priorities. And I feel like Chacha Nehru has truly returned. I am not finished.
