Mr. Narendra Modi, can you really become the Prime Minister of India ?

September 18, 2011

Finally BJP seems to have recognized the fact that Mr. L.K.Advani is now a spent force and they need to project somebody as Prime Minister candidate before the next election.

If one looks at the list of probable candidates, it is no surprise that it had to be Narendra Modi.  The other hopefuls have not done anything worthwhile other than “dancing in Raj Ghat” or making “foot in the mouth” comments or “walking out of the parliament”.

Today, BJP doesn’t even exist in North East, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. For BJP to come to power in the centre, it has to be through NDA route and can’t be on its own. Hence, they have to depend mainly on Nitish Kumar, Chandra Babu Naidu, Prakash Singh Badal, Balasaheb Thackeray and the fickle ‘amma’ Jayalalitha.

Out of the above, Nitish himself is a PM candidate. Post Telengana battle, Chandra Babu Naidu is insignificant and is more of a liability. Shiv Sena is no more a threat to anybody since there is a fight among the family members themselves. While Mr. Badal can contribute a little, no body can foresee what Amma does. She has never behaved consistently and banking on her is like predicting the Indian victory in one day cricket match. She is like our Salman Khan. ‘She doesn’t listen to herself’.

The only advantage that NDA has today is that there is lot of anger against congress because of various corruption cases. But, two years is too long in politics and if by chance Lokpal bill is passed, people will forget the corruption issue soon. It is also very difficult to control the BJP chief ministers (in 5 states) from putting their hand in the till.

So, what is the probability of Mr. Modi becoming the PM of india. In my opinion it is as probable as india retaining number 1 position again in cricket.
