Political untouchability cannot sustain long, it changes. Modi may be pariah today, loathed by all, and by his own BJP.
His brilliance in Gujarat is nothing for outsiders. But those wanting change, could root for Modi. Nobody should underestimate, if people want change.
Can CongressStranglehold over India change? NehruAndIndira were v.strong: Yet people gave defeat to Indira only once, then she came back again.
People gave Rajiv 400plus MPs, after Indira wasKilled: No opposition. All were eating out of his hands. But in 2years, Rajiv in deep trouble: BOFORS. Then PVN Rao saved S0nia.
Then BJP became main opposition, with Vajpayee 4 PM. Nobody believed that. People loved Vajpayee, right deep, from within, their hearts.
ThisUPA is theWorst since 1947, getting Worse by the hour. No one got BigIdeas except Modi. So, mostBJP leaders are deep into the sabotageMODIgame.
Unseen hand plays a role. Residual doubts were in people's minds about GujaratRiots, but no longer, as you cant influence Indians forever with just one story. Indian voters employ their own mind, when discussing and voting.
With media hellBent on demonizingModi, it could boomerang. Gujarat uninterruptedly elected Modi for 12 years, he did wonders there, so why not try Modi, and not Manmohan?
Voter experimentation never ends. Beware that. Never write anybody off in politics.
