Given the depths to which we have permitted politics to sink our social, economic,
political and geo-political interests, India's future is at grave risk.
The long term national resources are being swindled by politicians in collusion
with some bureaucrats and industrialists. The future of Indian citizens and even
future generations are being pledged for vulgar personal gains. Instead of developing
human resources and giving it an opportunity to blossom, to build a strong, powerful
and honest India, poor people are made pawns in the dirty of game of politicking
being played by the powerful and mighty. If this is allowed to continue, the loss
to the Nation would be so high that retrieving ground would be very costly to the
Nation, besides taking decades.
Luckily, we now have General Elections due, and we have a chance to replace the
Central Government in about 7 months with a more responsive and responsible one.
Unfortunately, politics across the spectrum has sunk to such levels, that there
are not really too many good alternatives, and not many are credible in the eyes
Only a responsible and competent leader can retrieve India from the precarious situation.
And we believe, not only is NarendraModi one of the most competent such leaders,
but also he's the one who is within striking distance of becoming the PM, among
the few competent leaders.
Under Modi's leadership, Gujarat has achieved highest growth in agriculture in India,
at a time when agriculture is on the decline across India; high growth in power
generation, water conservation and industrial production; reduction in rural poverty
and corruption, to name a few... all hallmarks of good governance. Some of us believe
that, but for Modi, no other leader in NDA may provide sufficiently good governance,
Now, BJP has announced Modi as its PM candidate. Only NDA, BJP and Modi can handle
the task of making NarendraModi become the PM. Though Modi appears to be in with
a chance to becoming the PM, the challenge is so huge that the probability is not
very high. Though there's an anti-UPA wave, it appears that such votes are likely
to be split among NDA, 3rd Front, 4th Front, 5th Front, and more.
True, the situation could change substantially as elections draw closer, but the
situation could change for better or for worse. Nation building is the responsibility
of every responsible citizen, esp. at the critical situation India is currently
in. So, we, a small group of responsible citizens, want to complement the efforts
of BJP and NDA, in our own small way, to facilitate Modi become the PM, and help
save Indian from bankruptcy.
