Dec 29: Narendra Modi versus Priyanka Gandhi - Whom will you choose? Indeed a good question, is it not? Elections are fast approaching. Nowadays it seems somewhere these two names are being heard. After spending some time, I prepared this article, placing it on the objective side.

Of late, Modi’s high altitude and jet-paced charisma seem to have been dramatically grounded by a novice, Arvind Kejriwalled AAP. Further, should Congress decide to field her in the next Lok Sabha elections, Priyanka may be able to stop AAP and Modi, a job Rahul could not accomplish. Whether Priyanka can be regarded as charismatic, whether she has mass appeal or can she be compared to Indira Gandhi - these questions will be answered if Priyanka decides to contest to put an end to all hypotheses about her.

Congress is trying hard to use the Gandhi dynasty to counter Modi'sand AAP’s charisma by renaming the Food Bill after Indira Gandhi. What made Indira Gandhi famous was she looked like someone who stood away from the syndicate, she stood for 'garibi hatao' (eliminate poverty). How far can Priyanka go with ‘garibi hatao’ slogan is a novice question. Congress could be in testing waters with the whole Priyanka Gandhi issue. They might compel her to take a plunge to save themselves from the recent assembly election debacles where Rahul Gandhi’s charisma failed miserably.

Everyone has been trying to invent news by portraying Priyanka Gandhi as the Congress trump card, although Priyanka Gandhi herself is aware that she is not the answer to Congress' current problems. Priyanka entering the fray at this point as a 'Saviour' might create huge problems leading to confusion in the minds of the people. However, should Congress decide to do it, now is the right time to use her against Modi's aggressive campaign style. Dynasty needs charisma in perpetuity to survive. Then there are other factors – will Sonia Gandhi contest these elections from Raebareilly? If she does not, who does, Rahul or Priyanka? Will one of the Gandhis opt for a southern destination? Priyanka is surely devoting much more time to a comeback after she faced a total rout of her party, zero seats in Raebareilly and two in Amethi in the 2012 UP Assembly elections.

Aam Aadmi Party’s spectacular run in Delhi has come as an interjection to the political discourse focused on Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi. ArvindKejriwal will have to walk the talk. Wisdom says he will, or at least try, to bring change as the broom that swept away the Congress and halted BJP’s march to the podium can also sweep his party away from public consciousness. While the Congress had seen the 4-0 washout coming, it is the BJP that has to be on the watch as the Narendra Modi Express speeds its way towards Delhi. Kejriwal's promise of clean politics has thrown up new paradigms that no political party, not the least the BJP, can afford to ignore. The AAP story has amply exhibited the saleability of new ideas and the willingness of the people to buy it at face value. The time is ripe for change and the public is willing to experiment. AAP picked up the wave early – Jan Lokpal movement – and has been riding on it ever since. While Modi’s promise of replicating the Gujarat model of development elsewhere in the country has brought him close to the crown in Delhi, he would have to now start talking about the aspirations of the country as a whole and his ideas to achieve them. Priyanka must stop songs of Rahul Gandhi as a ‘giver’ “We gave you food security, we gave you right to education, we gave you right to ...”, the gratuitous approach won’t work anymore. Previously Rahul had a real chance to plunge into politics but he opted to learn and study the voters with his ‘youth’ ideology while Arvind proved that much of research with the Indian voters was not required but a proven slogan like Jan Lopkpal one worked.

Priyanka Gandhi has time and again asserted that she has no inclinations towards joining active politics. But that has not stopped her growing popularity among the people and she has turned out to be a crowd puller during the party's previous election campaigns. At the moment for the voters from an individual point of view, the first front seems to be Modi, second front Arvind, and the third front, Congress, which has not yet declared Rahul but seems to be opting for Priyanka as an third front. All these years, a popular slogan in Amethi in every election has been “Amethi ka danka, bitiya Priyanka (Amethi’s pride is its daughter Priyanka). But she had let it pass smilingly. When she had said, “I have said it a thousand times that I am not interested in joining politics” in 1999, people — both Congress men and opposition leaders, and even the media — had smiled indulgently. Priyanka Gandhi cannot defy tradition. In a changed and highly-surcharged scenario, her “interest” will not matter. Not anymore. The Congress will need her in the forefront more than ever before.

Priyanka was considered a good organiser and a level-headed leader of men, besides being a formidable strategist. She is believed to be her mother’s political advisor. She had once told BBC during a campaign: “Politics is not a strong pull, the people are. And I can do things for them without being in politics.” But in 2012, the Congress won only one assembly seat in the area despite Priyanka’s target of 10 out of 10, and her days as an apolitical leader came to an end. Now in 2014, even as the Congress pins hopes on her, the rivals are busy chalking out their strategies to corner the Congress in its favourite ground. And Priyanka, naturally, is at crossroads.

Already, the BJP is trying hard to hit her, with such slogans like “Her charisma is fading. It will not work against Narendra Modi”. The BJP is parading one more name — cousin Varun Gandhi, son of Rajiv’s younger brother Sanjay. He may contest from Sultanpur where his father started his political career in the 1970s.The BJP’s strategy is clear: The battle against the Congress first family in the 2014 general elections will be fought on their home turf. And with all eyes on UP, it will be nastier and bloodier this time. Meanwhile, Priyanka has completed restructuring of the party in Rae Bareli and begun building the Amethi unit. And, in the process, she has managed to change the party to some extent. “Leaders are not being thrust from the top anymore,” said a party worker. So, every effort will be made to scare her away demonstrating in a unique way, members of the Bharatiya Janata Party Mahila Morcha sold onions at a stall named after Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi in Govind Nagar on Friday. The onions in the stall were sold after being weighed on a machine used to measure gold.

The demand for Priyanka is not just sycophancy but also the real politics as she could be a strong match to the BJP prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Unlike Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka comes across as very tough and no nonsense persona – similar to that of Modi. She could give competition to Modi, who has an instant connect with women and the youngsters. She is a mix of Sonia’s compromise style and Rajiv Gandhi’s no-nonsense style. Unlike Rahul, she is a good communicator and media savvy, much like Modi. However, her husband Robert Vadra’s controversy could cast a shadow on her prospects. Sources have said that the Congress is watching Modi and his impact closely and if his magic doesn’t wane, the party may be forced to unleash the Priyanka charisma.Congress looks for a savior in Priyanka, who has also asked local leaders to give input and recommend changes to fortify the party bases in the region. Based upon these inputs, a “development report” will be prepared. The leader has set a three-month deadline for the task, and is holding weekly public meetings in Delhi with party leaders from the constituency, to assess progress.

The Gandhi charisma notwithstanding, it won’t be easy for Priyanka in the badlands of Uttar Pradesh, the country’s largest state (population 200 million) and politically most crucial. The state sends 80 members of Parliament (the highest of all Indian states) to the 552-member Lok Sabha. Besides, an increasingly corruption-fatigued and vigilant Indian electorate – which doesn’t think twice before joining ranks with anti-corruption crusaders like Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev– is demanding good governance. It doesn’t care if that governance is by a Gandhi scion or a nondescript politician. “The days of political entitlement are over,” says the voters perception “Whether you’re a Gandhi or a Gupta, you have to be accountable to the people and be efficient in your work. People will not vote for you otherwise. Will the move help resuscitate the party? The jury is still out on this one. Congress members concede that the lady possesses the star quality of her late grandmother and erstwhile prime minister Indira Gandhi and may just be able to tip the scales in her party’s favor. She is the true inheritor of her grandmother’s and her father Rajiv Gandhi’s legacy.

Even her critics concede that Priyanka will make for a formidable opponent. “She has an amazing organizational prowess, is pragmatic and has a commonsensical approach to things. The Congress could certainly do with those attributes at the moment. The Grand Old Party is facing the worst crisis in its 135-year-old history. The erosion of people’s trust in the Congress-led UPA government headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is a major cause for worry. The economic crisis, numerous scandals, open corruptions and the ensuing food inflation have broken the back of the common man, ironically the Congress’ largest vote bank. In fact, growth in gross domestic product plunging to a nine-year low of about 4-5% from 9% is a direct outcome of the meltdown of political credibility.

At a public meeting during the March assembly elections in UP, Priyanka told the teeming crowds who had assembled to hear her speak that the erstwhile ruling Bahujan Samaj Party helmed by Mayawati“betrayed you in the name of caste and religion. Where is the development here?” And the crowd roared back: “Aapaao, kaamkaro (You get elected and work here)!”  The ball is now in Priyanka’s court.

 

To accept Modi as my PM:

- Should Modi be proven guilty in the court of law, he should tender a sincere and unconditional apology to Muslims for the post-Godhra riots.

- Modi should spell out a precise vision for India’s future - economic, political and social.
 
- He should be publically acceptable to at least 10 non-BJP parties that formed the NDA coalition.

- He should demonstrate his ability to build consensus - both within and outside his part.

- He should quit as Chief Minister of Gujarat after 4 to 5 months and travel across India, connecting with people.

- He should develop a better understanding of geopolitics and international relations than he has demonstrated so far.

- Modi must distance himself from the opportunist leaders like Dr Subramanian Swamy who can harm the party rather than proving to be ‘an advantage ’. His recent outburst in Mangalore against Rahul Gandhi calling him ‘buddhu’ and a 'drug addict' may not go well within the party. These kinds of uncalled for talks can cause harm with straightforward voters.

- He should make every Indian citizen specially the minority more comfortable in the interest of India as a secular country. He should stop thinking that votes from the majority are alone sufficient to win the elections and for rest of them (minority) ‘I care a damn’. At the end of the end, he would be ruling India and not the majority alone.

- He givs a positive sign too, praising Rahul for Congress party.

- Should he become flexible, it's a Yes to me. If not, my vote is for NOTA (none of the above).


To accept Priyanka as my PM:

- She should be successful in at least one public role that demonstrates her ability to govern, which she seems to be lacking to the core.

- Priyanka should end her splendid isolation and interact more openly and more often with the public.

- She should build and share a concrete vision for India.

- Her stand on key economic issues is made clearer.

- She should demonstrate leadership skills within her party without gluing to her mother and party.

- She projects Rahul Gandhi as the future prime minister and projects herself as his support .

- Priyanka should tie up with Left and Right or other parties…must stay away from RJD whose leader recently was sentenced in the fodder scam.

- She should portray herself as an independent leader coming out from the mask of grandmother, mother or brother’s shadow. Priyanka can join hands with now quite popular Anna Hazare who is riding high after the passing of the historic Lokpal Bill in the Lok Sabha.

- Should she deliver appropriately, it's a Yes to me; or else my vote is for NOTA (none of the above).

    So basically Christians will not vote for Modi, a three time CM, because he is a Hindu but ready to vote for Priyanka who has zero administrative experience of any kind other than being Robber Vadra's wife for the sole reason that she is a Christian. Why? So the evangelism can continue unabated? Instead of couching your answers with all sorts of excuses why don't you all be honest for once? It is really funny, not heard of any other democratic country where majority are are ruled by minorities. Too bad though. Modi is now PM and will be for the next 10 years at least. Hopefully Sonia Gandhi will be dead by then.

    Dear Antony Dsouza.
    In your article you have mentioned/set conditions to accept Modi/Priyanka as PM in which you have said to accept modi he should
    develop a better understanding of geopolitics and international relations than he has demonstrated so far.Also you have said he should Modi should spell out a precise vision for India’s future - economic, political and social does that mean to say that Priyanka has a better understanding of geopolitics,international affairs, Vision etc. Also you have said that modi should distance from Subramanya swamy. Don't you think Congress should distance from Lalu, A.Raja and Kalmadi etc.

    We all should know how bad bloods this Nehru Dynasty has, how they were born and from which cast to whom, how many affairs etc, it makes everybody boil if we understand..the truth behind this. We all know that our gene is very important to decide your personality. You could behave exactly like your father and grandfather. Rajiv Gandhi’s father was a muslim by name Feroz Khan married the Indian prime Indira Priyadarsini, after Indira converted to Islam and the couple had assumed the surname of Gandhi, to fool the illiterate public of India, and to corner their votes. We still don’t know what religion they follow, at least like Rajiv Gandhi, we are better then him for following one religion. We don’t have a muslim father, christen wife and hindu grandfather, christen son in law (never forget Robert). They have divided India by spreading poison of religion, they tell they take care of minority and create difference among us, telling I am big and ur small, in the eyes of god everybody is equal, so why the difference. Understand friends the intention behind all their bad and criminal politics. You tell anything against them, they see to it that u r in trouble, so that u stays way. Like kejrawl, modi is not going to stop, he will attack them and will free India from cong..

    Dear Antony T D'Souza,
    Suppose you have not sinned and still go to the church asking for forgiveness for no crime of yours... what would a wise and enlightened father say?
    he would say, don't fret my child!! if you are not guilty of any crime, then there is no need for forgiveness and follow the path of truth with courage.

    That's what Narendra Modi is doing!!!

    Why should he ask for forgiveness for a crime he truly feels he did not commit?


    As for rooting for Priyanka Vadra despite Robber vadra holding illegal land deals, shady business and mysterious death of Robert vadras own parents and siblings, I am not willing to trust 5 more years to a CORRUPTED GANDHI DYNASTY.

    It's truly amazing how you still hold a negative view of namo despite him having no fir against him for corruption.

    i would also ask you to question yourself deeply whether Narendra Modi is corrupt?

    At present scenario:-

    1. Modi is good but non-secular and dangerous with feku ideas and promises without offering a definite plan for the development of India. He has a bad tendency of temper (walks out from interviews) arguments and criticism against Nehru family. It will not work. Gujrat is a rich state having crowds of successful business people, Mode can’t take full credit for Gujrat development. Villages are still underdeveloped. Rich became rich and poor became poorer.
    2. Rahul is a failure without any vision for the county. He is still after the youth idea and youth can’t lead him to victory. It is too late. He never grew in the past 10 years.
    3. Priyanka baby only resembles to Grand Mother. Not capable.
    4. Aravind surely good but lacks experience for the Nationwide politics.
    ABOVE 4 GOES UNDER NOTA
    5. Good to give chance to a Third Party but leader is not known no unity between them.

    This is the fate of Indian voters yet they fight after wrong leaders.

    Both BJP and Congress are corrupt parties like others.There are no non corrupt political party in India.Question is who is more corrupt and less corrupt and so people have to make a choice in exercising their franchise.Raising 'communal bogey' by accusing each other is only a way to appease other religious groups.Every party including AAP is harping on appeasing various religious groups knowingly or unknowingly in bigger or small ways.This is the truth.If somebody appeases one region others will form seperate group on communal lines and there is no other alternative.This has exactly happened in this country since years and trensd is going in a going way.Latest trend is to appease verious religions. Various govt policies are in Karnataks Shaady bhagya,darshana bhagya are few to cite.
    Taking into all these factors I feel that BJP is the only alternative for present rulers.One can expect good governance from BJP provided Modi take the lead the next general election.Whatever various people/polictical groups accusing him on various issues is only an attempt to garner votes/appease minority people,nothing else.BJP should take extreme caution while ing candidates in the next election.As far as Karnataka is concerned it a big task to the BJP hicammand as to whom to give tickets as corruption has engulfed in a massive scale in every aspect during their last ruling.100% MLAs/ministers in their time were corrupt.Its a big storey.Many people want to support Modiji but the mute question is how?Should one should support DVS,Ashoka,Hapalla,Renuka,Nalin,
    Naidu,Eash,Ravi etc., who is known corrupts among similar lots.
    Should we support Modiji in Karnataka through voting corrupts?

    No hope from Priyanka because it will be more of same. Her popularity, and consequent style of congress functionaries means that she will stay aloof and let the usual suspects rule. She certainly does not represent change.

    According to me the candidates of political parties should stop opposition party candidates during their speeches and only concentrate on what they can do for the country and people. One cannot become better by blaming others. They should gain respect by their deeds. I dont think there is a single candidate in Indian politics who never blames others and concentrate in their work except Anil Kumar in Movie "NAYAK".

But Modi talk, gave, give a speech which made no sense or doesn't make any sense, he doesn't speak anything for the betterment of the people or for the country he never speak how is he going to bring up our country, how is he going to improve the condition of our poor people.

Everyone of us know, If got elected, as per their way of life, like Yeddy blindly grab every money openly to fill each politicians kazana. They're open corruption will be more than 80 fold than congress govt. Moreover they will divide Indin between race and creed, minority and majority. Indian voters are not blind but intelligent even if Priyanka is a novice who will be supported by left, right, rjd, AAP, independent parties, Anna support to keep the communal forces at BAY. Therefore, for another 4 years no power no money for MODI or BJP and RSS party.

    Neither of them should be elected as PM. There are many reasons which I am not interested to specify. Both congress which considers it to be a party of 125 years and BJP a party of 30 yrs old, today are saying that we should learn from Aam Aadmi party. Hence the politicians of both parties should take training from Aam Aadmi party to run a clean government. I would prefer a Aam Aadmi as a PM (not one like Manmohan Singh) and there are credible people.

    Dear Mr. Anthony T. D'Souza, it looks like you are a strong Congress supporter, it should be Mr.Rahul Gandhi Vs Mrs.Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, not Mr.Modi Vs Mrs Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

    We had enough of this Gandhi family, just look at the corruption, scams and bad governance of this Congress led UPA, Mr. Modi is far better than these useless leaders who are living in late Mrs Indira Gandhi (Grand Mother) and late Mr. Rajeev Gandhi's (father) shadow. Late Mrs Indira Gandhi & Late Mr.Rajeev Gandhi were good leaders who worked sincerely and honestly for the people & tried to do their best. Mrs Priyanka Gandhi Vadra did intensive campaigning in UP (Uthar Pradesh) assembly poll, her magic never worked, her party lost badly and came distant 4th and lost deposits in most of the constituencies. How can her charisma work in upcoming lok sabha poll, it is gone conclusion, writing is on the wall nice & clear, congress led UPA won't come to power in 2014.
    We had voted for Congress in the recent Karnataka assembly election, as we were fed up with BJP's corruption & bad governance, as we had no other option then, now we have a clear option in AAP (Aam admi party) thank god for that, we have received the same feedback from all the relatives, friends & well wishes to live in India especially in coastal Karnataka, that they will surely vote for AAP in Lok Sabha poll & not congress.
    Enough is enough of this filthy, useless, scam filled corrupt Congress led UPA. Time for change.

    Both are bad choices. One is a mass murderer and the other one is accommodating a looter. May be Mr. Kajeriwal is a better choice, provided the evil politicians allow him to survive and ute his future plans.

    i went through the article slowly and completely, it sounds good and no strings attached to it. Facts are kept well on the table including NOTA that makes article is very much objective one and not titled towards any party. Let Modi respect the minority and so the minority will lay their hope in him for to become a Greater PM. He should take all citizens all along with him. If he divides the house, house will divide him too. Unity starts in the Family one should learn from it

    Rahul is better than Priyanka in terms of oratory capability...and that alone is not enough. True Indian spirit and sincerity is required...which is now missing in the Gandhi family...They are in to all sorts of scams. In Mantralay in Mumbai some time ago there was fire and Aadarsh files got burnt...Any enquiry....?No..No..nothing...All of them have immunity inside Manthralay.Congress did not bother to find out...
    Now we need Priyanka.....for What?

    Our political parties are more concerned about focusing their PM candidate based on their charm and charisma. Little do they give attention to the clean image of their candidate. No doubt Modi could be an excellent PM, better ruler and I strongly believe that India would progress better under him. To deal with Pakistan, we need a PM like him. However, his hands are full of bloodstains, so how can one expect him to be the PM of such a great nation like ours? Likewise, Priyanka has charm but no experience in politics. Her husband is accused in corruption. In my opinion, both are not fitting the PM slot.

    Congress and their supporter are smelling defeat in 2014. And I am sure that the author is a hard core supporter of Congress and even he doesn’t have any hopes with the present leadership of Congress. As he bringing Mrs. Priyanka Vadra in the picture is consoling him because for him it’s very difficult to even imagine Mr. Modi as PM. Don’t know what people are going to do after 2014 when Mr. Modi becomes PM.

    - She should be acceptable by Hindus who are majority in India but still having a feel of a minority because of Congress's Fake Secularism.

    - She should sack all corrupt leaders like Chidu, MMS, Diggy, Kalmadi and send her husband to jail first.

So far she did nothing wrong in Politics but she has been brought up in Bofors Corrupt Money Only. Moreover she is herself upset with her husband due to his illegal business activities. So, she has to clean her own house first and then she can represent Congress Party. Rather she can think to join “AAP” so that it will give more self respects in Indian Politics

    How late Indira Gandhi shot into fame because of her determination and for Gandhi fly politics is in their blood (except Rahul.)

    If we elect Priyanka Vadra as PM, we will give a chance to the rise of Mr. Ten Percent in India (Robert Vadra) same as in the case of Mr. Asif Ali Zadari during Benazir Bhutto's tenure in Pakistan.

    Priyanka where were you so far? Rahul has already done the damage to the party.

    How you can influence the public only time will tell. For the time being you need to grow up in the political arena. You have your grandma's charisma and that my play important role in your political career in the future.

    Flavian Sir,

    There are N number of look alike of Amitabh Bachan, still nobody can beat him in acting.

    Same way, Priyanka has got the charisma of Indira Gandhi, but zero in politics and not interested to join politics as well.

    Barbie Doll Priyanka Vadhra is no match for Modi.
    Just to fool gullible people she is still using her maiden surname Gandhi.

    My choice is MODI,

    Rahul is better than Priyanka in my opinion. She is equally corrupted as her husband Robert Vadhra.

    The source of corruption is in the human mind. Until the minds are cleansed there is no resolution to this problem.

    The corrupt mentality leads to the actions of corruptions in all walks of life of all family members.

    Whoever the PM, previous records proved that only one person (PM)cannot run the country. Voters should do a study on the party before voting. Now all concentration of voters on Aravind Kejariwal of Aam Aadmi party who will surely take the advantage of the situation and act as per his promises. He has already shown it by riding a metro on the first day as CM. As promised if he do a discounted electricity tariff to people of Delhi then he will be a instant hero. He has surely become a challenge for Congress and BJP.

    To accept Priyanka as PM candidate from Congress - she has to apologise for Sikh massacre & hundred of communal riots which took the lives of Hindus,Muslims & others in Congress ruled states...Priyanka has a clean image because she didn't took any political post so far..you just compare even Rahul with MODI, since he never played any role in Govt..Better compare sonia, Diggy, chidu so on.
