Boradly, the noble *Sadbhavana Mission* was undertaken by Shri. Narendra Modi with the predominant intention to explain to the Nation not just his innocence on the baseless accusations hurled at him alleging his direct involvement in the 2002 Gujarat communal violence, but his resilience and determination to take the State he was entrusted with the governance of, to a elevated status that merits nothing short of jealousy!
Yes, the Sadbhavana Mission was a huge success in every which way one can conceive it to be. That it followed a Supreme Court judgment that amply justified the blind lady with balance in hand, the allegorical representation symbolizing impartial justice, was not only significant but a slap to the various others, both political or otherwise, who cried blood of Mr. Modi.
Appealing to personal considerations and political adversities rather than to logic or reason, Debators, Main Stream Media, Political Enemies, Religious Groups, hitherto unheard of NGOs, so on and so forth came out in a vehement ad hominem attach against him. Baseless as they were, it was propagated relentlessly and repeatedly, implicitly emphasizing his guilt for a communal violence that was a natural outcome, a spontaneous response to a crime committed by burning innocent Hindu Karsevaks travelling by train in Godhra.
When the entire world cried foul, blamed him guilty and unceremoniously crucified him based on mere assumptions, raked TRPs and hostile lies, he remained calm and composed, without animus or malevolence, without rancor or acrimony and focused only on ‘Progress, Development & Welfare’ of the State. He promulgated his State to become a mascot of Agricultural revolution, Industrial Revolution, Corporate Revolution and Tourism Revolution. He projected his State, as he fondly called it, as an example of how the Nation should have progressed rather than the other way around. He translated his vision and thoughts literally by personally reaching out to the people of his State in a remarkable and informal manner. He abstained himself from the hues & cries of national politics with grit and patience. He remained a sepoy of the people, regardless of caste or creed, and ensured their safety, security and well being.
Mr.Modi also maintained that his State remained protected from religious strife and ensured that the integrity of the State is strictly based on its spiritual culture rather than on the sickly clichéd ‘secular’ culture the pseudos yell about. All the nasty insults and humiliations he has been subjected to till date stands vindicated by the Supreme Court judgement. His Sadbhavana Mission has driven the final nail into the Congress and other abrasive opponent’s coffin.
Congress, continuing piling their insurmountable follies, commits yet another one in the name of a nondescript Shanker Singh Vaghela attempting to APE the very theme Mr. Modi chose with the mocking result of not only their very own Main Stream Media ignoring him but also someone failing to offer him a sip of water at the end of the 3 day humiliation! Alas, if only Congress had some semblance of dignity in them. Let me conclude by not wasting time on Congress follies, a common factor for them, in this precious space.
Yes, it is impossible to unseat Mr. Modi in Gujarat in the coming years. His soaring popularity augmented by good impartial governance will see no serious adversaries emerging there in the near future. In fact, he has established himself as the next in line to the throne in Delhi, if a BJP victory crops up in the next general election. The ground work for that seems to be taking place with the withdrawal of Shri. Advani from Prime Ministership. Though some of the allies, in the name of petty vote bank politics, might take reservation to Mr. Modi’s candidacy, some diligent maneuvering from BJP think tanks can sort it out. If BJP can ensure their individual seats in Lok Sabha increase at least to 180 from the present 115, no ally will pose a serious threat to Mr. Modi’s Prime Ministership. Some anxious days are ahead for BJP beginning with 2012 UP and Gujarat elections. A redefinition of the Indian Political History is definitely in the making if the presence of Mr.Modi emerges in the National scenario. It is worthy of watch indeed.
I conclude by attributing this appropriate quote from Edmund Burke to Mr. Narendra Modi. **A disposition to preserve, and an ability to improve, taken together, would be my standard of a Statesman!**
