Who is Modi?


The line from the Guardian/BBC axis is that Narendra Modi is a dangerous blood-thirsty right-wing nationalist, a sectarian Hindu who oversaw the massacre of Muslims in his home state of Gujurat. For added measure he was associated with the RSS, a uniformed Hindu-fascist organisation. Despite all this disapproval from the left-wing media establishment he has just won more votes in a free election than anyone on the planet…

The reality is he has risen from being a lower caste, poor chai-wallah, a boy selling tea at a train station, to successfully running Gujarat – a state with a population of 60 million – which has outperformed the rest of chronically corrupt India on all economic indicators. The Indian supreme court found there was no evidence that Modi allowed or even encouraged the mob violence in 2002 in Gujarat that led to some thousand deaths. The RSS is closer to Baden Powell’s boy scouts than Hitler’s brownshirts. Modi is a vegetarian, technocrat who believes that India’s Hindus and India’s Hindu culture should command more respect. In that it is fair to say he is a conservative nationalist.

The born-to-rule Congress Party has been swept from power, the once great idealistic party of Gandhi that brought Fabian socialism to India had degenerated into an arrogant, corrupt, nepotistic kleptocracy. Modi offers his fellow members of India’s lower castes the prospect of social mobility, competent government and a high growth economy based on free market reforms, accelerated privatisations and technological progress. Modi’s campaign emphasises optimistically that India can become the largest market in the world and in a way reminiscent of Ronald Reagan, Modi promises to make India proud of its future. His campaign anthem commercial rocks too:

India has won! भारत की विजय। अच्छे दिन आने वाले हैं।

    Well done India. It is time to turn away from that socialist nonsense and join the modern world. Socialism rewards failure and punishes success. India deserves better and now it has the opportunity to become the nation it should be.

    He is killing muslims, hope he has more results, no matter what, as long as he is killing muslims nothing wrong with him, maybe send some of his chaps to the U.K.

    The Growler says:

    Nige unfortunately not, it would be virtually be imposible in the UK (though it is a change from Eton College) little Johnny Major was about he nearest we got, the elite of the UK think they have right to rule, admittedly they are in the main intelligent but very often that does not alkways equate to commonsense. A lot of politicos are in politics not for the puiblic good, but for what they can get out of the system. Nigel Farrage is doing well because he is not one of the LibLab Cons if he does not deliver he will vanish, if he delivers the LibLab Cons can just pack up and go home.

    Well said the Sikh says:

    yesterday Labour rolled out it’s minority charter. compulsory minorities on company boards, the police, judges, that sort of usual thing.

    So Sky news decided to run with it and invited a Sikh business man on expecting him to fully back up Labour’s new cunning plan. He was having none of it, he only hires the best person for the job, it is insulting to employ someone because of their race and he finds business life in Britain an environment where the most ablest succeed as it should be.

    Big fail for Labour and sky. Massive plaudits for the Sikh community in Britain.

    You just know when the BBC strongly disapproves of the winning party and candidate? Oh yes, the BBC toady show twerps and website pimping the tried and tested smear accusation they use against everyone they hate.

    “highly divisive”

    No matter how big the winning margin is, people they dont like are always “divisive” but politicians and political parties they do approve of are always “unifying” no matter how small the margin of victory is.

    Its just another clear example of BBC bias and how it is arrogant enough to believe it can pick and choose who they support and who they dont.

    I was born in India and have lived in the UK for 48 years. My impression is that corruption is ingrained in the Indian political and economic system. So, I expect Mr. Modi to have some skeletons in his cupboard, but he seems the least worst option. Gujarat State is flourishing and that, in no small way, is due to Mr. Modi. If he can avoid being beguiled by the trappings of power, he could be a good Prime Minister.

    I don t venture beyond Bognor tbese days .

    I am not prepared to cavort through “security ” taking off my shoes , belt , braces ,false teeth , pacemaker , wartime piece of shrapnel and then shuffling through to the bleep machine shoeless and with one hand holding up my trousers while the other seeks balance and simultaneously squinting sideways at the hand luggage containing my life documents dissapearing under a conveyor belt housing only to be told by the security officer to look straight at him and not worry about my bag (perhaps he thinks I am smuggling dismonds in my eyeballs ) !

    Only to find the machine …stlll bleeps … and I have to be body searched and try again , at which second attempt it miraculously lets me through with explanation being that sometimes it ” …plays up Sir …”

    By which time my hand case has dissapeared and I am officially a semi naked stateless person !! With the one consolation being to having to look forward to repeating the excercise on the return leg !

    No thanks , fish snd chips and a Rossi s ice cream on Bognor Beach for ne .. no hassle and no passport ….yet !!
