Narendra Modi vs Rahul Ghandi for PM

Postby abhischekcc » 03 Jun 2010 14:36

There was a small debate on the merits and/or demerits of Narendra Modi as the PM of India, in the 'Perspectives...' thread
Suraj-ul-adminullah asked the debate closed for being OT.

So here is a new thread on the topic :D

Just to enhance participation, let's debate on the relative strengths of NM vs RG :)




These are my thoughts on the two, in bullet points:

Narendra Modi
1. Great Administrator
2. Popular with masses
3. Political organizer
4. Knows how to control subordinates
5. Has successfully contested elections despite large parts of media against him
6. Strong opinions and not afraid to express them - is his own man
7. Bachelor with no family, unlikely to leave behind a dynasty - good for democracy
8. Hardcore nationalist

Rahul Gandhi
1. Untested administrator - has not even held the post of head of a department - let alone a ministry
2. Known because of his family, not his own achievements
3. Unknown organization skills
4. Has never handled subordinates
5. His popularity is mostly due to media manipulation
6. His mother tells him what to speak - mama's boy. The few times he has spoken his mind, he has ended up with his foot in his mouth.
7. Is the product of the most venal political family in the world
8. Half foreigner, no nationalistic credentials there

But Modi is not secular onlee. Rahul baba is 450% secular onlee

Rahul baba ki Jai ho

I'm sorry Abhi-Sheikh but I don't see a bright future for this thread so despite not wanting to do an IB4TL I'm too tempted by the chance to increase my post count.

Dis-cussing politics is haraam, and praising non secular politicians like Modiji is even more haraam

IIRC our PM Sahib Shri MMS has mentioned multiple times that Rahul baba has all qualities for becoming PM(I dont know what qualities he really mean) and I have a feeling that Rahul baba will be projected as prime minister candidate in next general elections.

He is already being projected like that, but the point is is he at all capable?

You cannot compare Rahul even with his father. At least Rajiv was a licensed commercial pilot - he had the capability to become a pilot - and that is no mean feat.

But what is Rahul Gandhi's achievements that tell us he is competent (in any field)?

BJP will be hard pressed to find allies if they project Shri Modi as their PM candidate. With a burgeoning Muslim population, there are few parties who would take a hit at their sekoolar credentials by supporting 'Maut ka Saudagar' (credit to Madam Maino) for PM.

Raul Baba on the other side is young, TFTA, speaks angrezi, wimmens love him, Burkha & brigade constantly use his pictures for self pleasuring & is 400% sekoolar only. Once the race starts, you would see how the DDM would turn this into a battle of old vs young, evil communal backward thinking vs fresh secular face. The 'Baba Project' has already started, with the DDM already treating him like a King in waiting.

Abhishek, this thread will meet its death very soon! The admins will see to it.
Especially since BR admins are RAW plants :D & RAW is under the GOI

You have mentioned the negatives of RG and positives of NM.
Now do the opposite too.

The strongest and single most overpowering point against NM is that:
He is non-secular mass murderer and promoter of progrom who is a frothing nationalist belonging to a fascist war-mongering hindutva party (which in itself is a career limiting move in indian politics) .
Plus he not as cute and fair as RG, nor wears western clothes that Gen X,Y,Z can identify with, and speaks in desi language.

Why should I, who has grownup listening to indian media channels believe otherwise.
(All opinions based on learnings from Indian TV news channels)


Sarci post only. My loyalties lie with phool party

Funny you should mention old vs new, and up identifying Raul as the 'new' when he really represents the 'old'.

The local elites that exploited India under the British (and turned over hte lions share to the goras), became the new elite under the Nehru family. RG represents this old class of exploiters.

BJP (and its earlier avatars) were funded by small time traders (leading to the 'accusation' that BJP is a 'bania' party). The small time trader class is precisely the same class that was excluded out of power by the dominant elites, but at the same time had enough money (ie. was not the downtrodden mass) to fund its own political machine. These small time traders also represents Bharatiya culture, as opposed to the 'Indian' culture of the english speaking western oriented elite.

BJP's rise represents the rise of Bharat against India, and should really be looked as a class struggle.

Aditya, you have already pointed out the plus points of RG, but even you were hard pressed to come up with a serious good point. All that you mention are frivolous points in his favour.

Talking of hidden Hindutvavadis:

I was once talking to a female journalist, and I started criticising TOI editors for being frothing at the mouth journalists. She corrected me saying that most editors at TOI are pro-Hindutvavadis, but they are under tremendous pressure to 'confirm' to the anti-Hindu tirade.
