I'm not a political commentator any anything of that sort. I'm just an Indian citizen with a voter's ID card getting worried that this democracy is being turned into a farce by a very strong PR machinery trying to make an unworthy and undeserving man the Prime Minister of this country. Yes you guessed it right. I'm anti-Modi. But the worry is that I was somehow a little scared to put that across this bluntly.
Everywhere I've said a single anti-Modi statement I've been lashed out at. It starts on as a debate with someone I had no bias against and ends with me discovering an anti-Muslim fanatic with a foul heart.
So I've basically jotted down all the reasons in the world why NaMo should NOT be the prime minister of this nation and here goes. I'll try to put is as simply and as concisely as possible. Here are all the reasons I will not vote Modi. And here are all the reasons I (and a lot many others) would get nightmares in case NaMo IS elected Prime Minister.
Hindu Majoritarian Agenda: Obviously the first point. Our NaMo doesn't care much about people of different religious views. Obviously in a nation that's secular we cannot possibly be electing someone who has shown every sign of being biased throughout his political career.
Authoritarian and Selfish: Modi has displayed great capability of being shrewd. He never talks in terms of 'we'. All his achievements are in terms of 'I'. He is the man because of who a big rift is starting to appear in BJP. What is worse is his only agenda seems to be saving his vote bank. During the recent Uttarakhand disaster, I was shocked to see Modi save only Gujratis from the flooded area. The rest of India was dying, army personnel were dying but for Modi all that was important was his vote bank!
Lopsided Development in Gujrat: Everyone's going gaga over Modi's handling of Gujrat administration. The claims are that Gujrat has seen tremendous economic growth. But wasn't Gujrat always faring well economically? Specially because most Gujratis are very enterprising when it comes to business? I wonder how he would have fared if he was heading Bengal! Plus I also wonder what kind of development Gujrat has seen when the bigger part of it's population knows nothing about all the development you and I are talking about!
The Dude's 60: India really needs an young PM. I'm not asking you to vote for Rahul Gandhi. He's a nincompoop. But Modi is too old. Any nation that's doing good for itself has a youthful leader with new vision and new ideas. Modi is too old to fit into that category!
Half the Nation Might Go Mysteriously Missing Overnight: Post the fake encounters of Ishrat Jahan and Sohrabuddin Sheikh I really feel this man has the sacry power to do away with anyone any minute. This is why I said that I'm a little scared to be anti-Modi at times. He feels all Muslims are LeT associated and moreover all of them are coming to kill him! I wonder if he will do away with all of them if he's elected PM. If for nothing else then atleast to safeguard one of India's comminities I will never dare to vote for Modi. Because if I were a Muslim and I heard everyone rooting for Modi as PM, I can't even imagine what kind of panic I would be feeling right now.
