Modi should have been more real on governance and policy challenges and concerns. But, no conducting rhetorics is more purposeful than anything for effectively organizing and mobilizing the mass sentiments, hearts, minds and emotions.
Aiding and assisting the leader in deflecting his constituents from believing what otherwise holds ground. Though Mr Prime Minister has vividly spoken about representing the faith and belief of 1.25 billion Indians,”Sabka Saath, Sabka Vishwaas” being his pet slogans for engaging and involving us the people as apart from “Aatma Nirbharta” guiding our guarantees to economic prowess and revivalism.
But, one thing he often misses to pinpoint is the fact that India also should take the opportunity to secure and safeguard its plurality in diversity amongst caste, community and culture as a divide would only further complex the situation and scenario as is happening now.
Ongoing farmers protest pioneering illustrates this assumption as those agitating and organizing themselves against the draconian farm law are being tested and tagged for no fault of theirs. Either they are a Khalistani or a Pakistani intentionally maligning the reputation of the country.
While those who showed up in the CAA protests were there for dismantling the democratic processes and procedures of state functioning. Thus, accordingly booked for daring the courage notables to include many prominent activists and academicians- Harsh Mander, Yogendra Yadav, Medha Patekar, Ramachandra Guha speaking truth to the power. Dissent being brutalized and blamed for whatever the country is sharply facing at this point of the hour.
Beginning with lockdowns impairing our economic growth rate, falling levels of employment, inflation etc. Still, we have chosen to hide for us watching from the sides whatever is being inflicted upon us after all we voted a majority government to power knowing very little of how it can systematically sabotage the autonomy of our democratically elected bodies and institutions. The Election Commission, judiciary and media have all become pawns of control, coercion and colonization of our reason, rationality and role as conscious and dutiful citizens of the state.
At least, Modi should have blurred the lines as he no more is an RSS Pracharak which helped in becoming Gujarat CM and later as PM in 2014. This fact should be made clear to him by his coteries shuffling and reshuffling his roles, ranks and responsibilities as a leader, guardian and spokesperson of his party and government. It would be better if PM takes his call sooner than the later as for his fading hold and authority within the party with the ascendancy of Hindutva hardliners in the party structure and organization.
Thus, shying Modi away from focusing on issues like Ram temple, abrogation of article 370 etc, it might interfere with the ideological machinery of the saffron socialists. I do not know what the bitter truth is?
