we saw ashok malik's terrific article on how well modi has managed gujarat economically.
here's a post (thanks, narayan) about how well modi has been received by the public in, of all places, kerala.
Modi's Kerala visit a grand success
Pioneer News Service | Thiruvananthapuram
Proving the perpetrators of paranoia wrong, Kerala welcomed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday when he reached here to take part in the Hindu Maha Mela organised by the RSS as part of the MS Golwalkar Birth Centenary celebrations.
Modi's visit, which was projected by his political opponents as "intended to create fissures in the social fabric of Kerala", turned out to be one of the most well-attended public programmes the State has ever witnessed. "The credit should go to the State Police and the Home Department for ensuring that the programme takes place as per plans," said an ecstatic organiser half way through the rally.
then we turn around and see that the BJP has kicked modi out of its central committee (i saw this news item, but don't have a URL).
what is it, death wish?
modi is the one candidate they have who stands tall.
maybe the moles are active at the highest levels still. there was one guy who was an absolute mole in the top echelons of the bjp (obviously i am not going to name names) and he was a pure-bred nehruvian. don't these guys do background checks on people before they take them on board? sheesh!
