one expects useless some crazy dude like uddhav thackeray to very forcefully take up on this meme and vociferously push himself for the post.
so what's wrong with mamta begum being the deputy PM in Modi's govt.
hasn't she had already identified a new hairdo that is just right for the next parliament.
If that were to happen, it would be under new BJP dispensation without the duo from Gujarat and some more parties would queue up to support NDA. Some names floated are Gadkari, Venkaiah Naidu, Sitaraman, etc. Many regional parties are okay with Hindutva politics but are afraid of other political and governmental aspects of the duo.
I was shocked at the irony of it all and the inherent sense of entitlement that is now being pushed as a matter of right.
KCR wants to be "made", mind you, "made" the deputy PM. He neither has the ability to make it up there on his own nor would he know what to do once up there except the very obvious crony puja, dynastic advancement as well as the chance to further acquisitions from on high.
KCR was simply in the right place at the right time and he betrayed the "hand" that fed him to ditch them and go it on his own by allying with "secular" forces. The mafia was simply floored and haven't recovered to date. This was exacerbated by the jagan fiasco in AP.
I sometimes wonder who set the trap for whom and who was the actual hunter and who was the unwary prey in the entire partition of AP.
abjectly pandering to "secular" forces who believe that they have the god given right to rule in that particular geography is actively inviting the formation of another cashmere like situation in the very heart of India
if only others had followed the "political and governmental aspects of the duo" which was actually was what was required to be done when the nation was partitioned instead of what was actually done in the name of "democracy" and "safeguarding the rights of the minorities", we would not have been in this predicament today.
when the partition was done exclusively on the basis of religion, why did our great oxbridge "educated" PMs neglect the development and welfare of dominant one left behind on this side of the border. After all, wasn't this their share and wasn't it their right to be given preference in nation building, instead they went for "protection" as though for over a thousand years we were the aggressors and the "other" the oppressed victims.
Sadly, mayawati, mamta and many other regional charlatans and con artists have misread the chaiwallah meme and have arrogantly assumed that they each have the intellectual capacity in a far greater measure than Modi and its very easy to do what Modi has done. They seem to think that what has been done so far has been mere child's play, requiring no ability at all.
the regional satraps are still caught up in the vote bank trap of caste, creed, and religion whereas Modi has bypassed most of the traditional vote banks by introducing new aspirations of equality and the just distribution of resources
no "chaiwallah" today strides the international stage as Modi does. He has gone after the pakis in ways that have completely confounded them as well as cutting them off at the knees, economically speaking. The balakhot strike was the icing on the cake.
the traditional obeisance paid to embedded vote banks and the de jure pampering that these vote banks have enjoyed, at times vociferously demanded and come to expect as their right for over seven decades has not deterred Modi. One vote bank can only come at the cost to another, perhaps, more deserving group
IMHO, there is no other PM who comes even close to Modi, comparing his accomplishments to date. PVNR would be the next best.
