Inevitability of Modi

The article by Shiv Visvanathan, “The inevitability of Narendra Modi” (Jan.5), reflects the concerns of many of us. Jawaharlal Nehru and Patel were genuine democrats and statesmen. In spite of his efforts to emulate Nehru, Mr. Modi’s new mask cannot hide his past. His silence on the acts of the right wing exposes his hidden agenda. As far as governance is concerned, the massive publicity indicates an attempt to hide a perceptible lack of achievements worth talking about. The demystification of Mr. Modi should happen through genuine, fearless criticism and through public discourses and one hopes that the Opposition soon recovers its voice to be able to emerge soon and deflate Mr. Modi’s artificially built image. All this must happen soon.
