Intellectuals Speaketh : If not Modi, then Who?
Amartya Sen and Amitav Ghosh, two intellectuals say, Narendra Modi is not a good PM material.
But I wonder about their honesty? Are they honest in saying this or it is their political propaganda for Congress? Because they are not saying… Rahul Gandhi would be the worst PM material? By not saying this, are they saying Rahul is a good PM candidate for India.??? Then, they should also say who the right choice is for PM?
Bong Intellectuals Anti-Modi?
And why is Amartya Sen making an outrageous comment that Muslims are rightly feeling fear about Narendra Modi becoming PM ? Is he not over reacting and not being fair in making such statements when in reality Muslims feel otherwise in Gujarat Or is he trying to be politically correct? His comments every time are only about Modi and never about Rahul or Sonia Gandhi who two were messing up the governance with their remote -controlled roles. Whatever, they both are not voting for Modi or BJP. So what? How does that matter? It is their view, their choice. Why should they try to influence others with their one sided, biased opinions?
And Amitav Ghosh had earlier declared that if Modi becomes PM of India, he will leave the country. He is most welcome to leave India. Because, if BJP comes to power, Modi will become PM of India, and that means, people of India have voted BJP and Narendra Modi as their choice to lead India. If these two intellectuals do not respect our constitution, our electoral Democracy, and the mandate given by the people of India… they should leave this country and stay wherever they wish to, but should not insult the intelligence of the Indian electorate.
Personal Judgement or being Politically Biased?
By condemning Modi openly, and by scaring the Muslims in India, they have already insulted the electorate of Gujarat who has voted Narendra Modi in power four times. Gujarat state is still in one piece under Modi`s government for the last 15 plus years and Muslims of Gujarat have not migrated to any other state because they are persecuted in Gujarat. Have they? Are there any media reports suggesting mass exodus from Gujarat by Muslims on account of persecution? These intellectuals must know what they are talking? This sounds like a loose talk without any sound rational basis. They are not only irrational in their personal judgments’ but they are making politically motivated comments.
This I am saying with responsibility because both these intellectuals have not uttered a word about the last ten years of corrupt governance by the Congress led UPA government in power.??? They have not publicly commented on Congress Scams, poor and corrupt governance, wrong policies, policy paralysis, failure on the economic front, Rupee losing its value, high prices, lack of good infrastructure, failure in providing better health facilities, educational opportunities, 24 hrs power and drinking water? National security issues, Failure of Congress government in fighting the war with Terrorists ?
Amartya sen says Modi is nt d perfect material for PM while Rakhi Sawant,s view is opposite.

Have these two gentlemen said a word about non performing Congress government for the last decade? NO. They have not. Whereas, Narendra Modi is a democratically elected Chief minister four times by people of Gujarat. How can they offend Gujarat ? And not question Congress about their failures?This shows their political dishonesty and political loyalty to congress. If they want to leave India for the wrong reasons, it is their choice. But let them not play their politics with Indians We, the citizens know what we want from our elected government and who we want to govern.
Opinion: Jagdish Bhagwati and Amartya Sen contribute valuable insights on Modi – http://t.co/bUzRXzvn6I

This advice by these two intellectuals with all due respect was uncalled for. As if Indians do not have brains. They don’t need to be advised by Amartya Sen, Amitav Ghosh, and the corrupt political class who are looting this country.
