I ran the risk of opening a pandora’s box if I posted this on Facebook (with random ‘friends’ starting discussions on my timeline) so I decided to post my views here. This post is for me to walk down the memory lane by reading it in the future rather than start a fight here. Plus, it’s been a notoriously long time since I posted anything here.

Modi was unanimously elected the Prime Minister in May 2014 when BJP won the elections with an overwhelming majority. With over an year of the government being in power, issues are being raised about the growing intolerance. There are two things I would like to point out.

(1) Everything Modi and the BJP does is being scrutinized. You either love Modi or hate him; there isn’t a middle ground. Why didn’t people focus on the Congress and it’s wrongdoings? Incidents like the Dadri lynching are outrageous and bring shame to my country but they haven’t cropped up only after the BJP rose to power, they only became more visible. The problem with Indian secularism is that it works only in favour of minorities. The fact that media is no longer unbiased in it’s reporting and goes only for sensationalism doesn’t help either.

(2) As citizens with the power of (just) “one” vote, if good governance is our objective, we should vote for the party with ‘lesser evil’. That automatically gives the onus on politicians to perform. If BJP doesn’t live up to it’s standards, vote it out! If it does improve my country, re-elect Modi. With a highly active and involved ministry, I think (hope) Modi’s cabinet gets another chance. After all, don’t we all want the Uniform Civil Code re-implemented, as was promised in the BJP manifesto?
