To me a leader who gives top priority for job creation is the one who is needed for India at this juncture. And job creation cannot take place when all development plans of the government are marred by delayed decisions and lack of appropriate laws. I had written about this in a blog earlier. Narendra Modi seems to understand this well. Besides, he is bold and brave to speak and act!
Narendra Modi is well experienced and with little family encumbrances that would deter or deviate him in serving his nation. The chances that he would be interested in making money for himself is also very remote. He now knows the complex nature of the people of India. Incidentally I remember something a metropolitan bishop of an influential Christian church of Kerala told me personally a couple of years ago-Narendra Modi was the first and only Chief Minister who had shown the courage to extent courtesy to this bishop to welcome him as a state guest in Gujarat! Apparently, Mr Modi is not a hardened minority antagonist as some people believe that he is!
The outgoing PM of India, Dr Man Mohan Singh, has commented about the negative roles of the watch dog agencies in pulling down developmental activities. But I think it is not proper for a PM to comment like that. It is the prime duty of the leader of the government to make laws accordingly. He should not weep about laws and rules that got created during his time or earlier. Of course, he cannot make any appropriate laws that he might desire when he is not the person in real command! Perhaps that was what happened in his case! The Man Mohan Singh regime is a typical case which proves the ineffectiveness of highly qualified persons as top leaders in India! Aristocrats of India are handicapped in understanding the people of India of the present times even while they might have been a be a bit successful in dividing the people by exploiting their weaknesses for many years in the past!
While I was typing this blog, I stopped for a while to watch Amir Khan's Satyameva Jayate TV episode-5. I do support the issue that he has dealt in this program. It is high time that Indian voters use their franchises properly to discourage known criminals to get elected as peoples' representatives.
But at the same time we need to be practical. Let not our votes go as wastes to make a fragmented outcome with no party getting the decisive majority. A fragmented peoples' choice is the best scenario for many of those corrupt politicians who are waiting to pounce upon India to make their kill. Let us not make such a thing happen!
It is for all of us in this country to decide now!
