India, Nowhere Close To An "Emergency"

Advani's remarks are an unfortunate attempt to become relevant again. Politicians in Nepal similarly refuse to get the work done on federalism and the constitution because, as soon as the work is done, they are going to become irrelevant. Who in their right mind wants to become irrelevant?

People like Laloo and Mulayam rode the Mandal wave. Advani rode the Kamandal wave. Ab to Development Wave chal raha hai. Developent Wave ne Mandal aur Kamandal dono ko nigal liya hai. Modi's background makes him the ultimate Mandal, and his clear majority win makes him the ultimate Kamandal as well.

Adavani "Hindu rate of growth" jamane ke log hain. 2% aur 3% se kam chala lete the us samay mein log. When people like Nitish idolize him at a personal level, that is fine. But when they idolize him politically, main to confuse ho jata hoon. 

The BJP is a big tent. Us mein kism kism ke log hain. Kuchh log ultra conservative hain, kuchh Islamophobic log bhi hain, kuchh sexist log hain, actually dher sare sexist log hain, to tarah tarah ke log hain.

Lekin Advani aur Modi mein to Modi jyada liberal dikhte hain. Advani ne Ram Mandir ke naam par desh mein utna uthal puthal machaya tha. Bhul gaye?

Advani senior log hain. Aadar milni chahiye. There is no doubt about that. Shayad usi aadar bhav mein kami kamjori ho gayi hogi, to unhone hostile interview de dala. Ghabrane ki baat nahin hai. India is a democracy. Log to bolenge hi.

Laloo aur Advani dono ek jagah kisi mudde par aa jayenge, ye mujhe nahin maloom. Lekin aa gaye, emergency ke masale par. To wo po purani baat hai. 

India mein abhi emergency ki koi sambhavana nahin, koi gunjayas nahin. Waise Advaniji ne news mein aane ke liye kah diya.
