Unlike wine, politicians hardly mature with age. Shri Lal Krishna Advani is the classic example of this fact. In the past BJP had been more in news for Advani tantrums and his stupid statements to Press than for anything else. Again the BJP lady Smt Sushma Swaraj, the leader of the opposition party in the Lok Sabha was more in news for not allowing the parliament to work. As the leader of the opposition her most significant contribution to the nation was making the parliament practically lose its relevance and significance.She was directly responsible for number of non working sessions of parliament which approximately costed the tax payer 2.5 lac of rupees per session. There was nothing significant in BJP to allow the people even to consider it as the last straw for the survival of democracy.
It was under such circumstances the BJP's regional leader from Gujarat emerged on the National Political scene.With no foot prints beyond the shores of Sabarmati and Sand dunes of Kutch this man finally after a long drawn verbal spates and dirty gimmicks led by none other than the octogenarian Advani, the BJP was able to announce Shri Narendra Modi as the Party's Prime Ministerial Candidate.The credit for which should go to no other person than Shri Rajnath Singh the President of the BJP. For the first time after Atal Behari Bajpai, it was Narender Modi who became the Face of the BJP. People's endorsement of Modi as the MAN for the Prime Ministership was visible across the country.
His streak of arrogance and his meaty public addresses jelled completely with the mood of the nation so much that it sent shock waves across all the big, small and tiny political Parties . If he became a "Maut ka Saudagar" for Congress , he was seen as "Butcher of Gujarat" by the tinny TMC of Bengal. His daring to question the validity of Article 370 and terming J&K as most communal state almost sent Faraque &Omar Abdullahs the Father&Son blabbering away in desperation to cover their exposure
It is now a forgone and heartening conclusion that Shri Narendra Modi will be sworn in as the 15th Prime Minister of India. Let the octogenarian in the BJP understand that for Narendra Modi to rise up to the expectations of the people, the BJP has to stand unanimous in letter & spirit when raising the toast tomorrow!
