Narendra Modi vs Rahul Gandhi

Updated on September 18, 2013

With the 2014 election just around the corner, the main question going through everybody’s mind is-“Who will be the next PM?” Though both NDA and UPA are yet to declare their Prime Ministerial candidate, rarely anyone doubts the fact that it is going to be Narendra Modi vs Rahul Gandhi battle.

So, the question we may ponder upon is who is more suited for the top job. Both have their strength and weaknesses. Narendra Modi is being projected as a Hindu PM, not giving any importance to secularism while Rahul Gandhi is famously known as Mumma’s Boy.

Recently, both Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi gave a speech on different podiums on different topics at different time. Where Narendra Modi was easily able to connect to the audience, Rahul Gandhi found the going tough. So, it was no surprise that Narendra Modi won this battle of vocalism hands down. Yes, no one can deny that Narendra Modi is a great orator and is too good for Rahul Gandhi any day. He is almost blessed when it comes to his speech connecting with the people. He even has a great vision for India which is awe-inspiring. But, he also has a big, if not main, drawback. The first and foremost drawback on which his political rivals attack him every time is due to his anti-Muslim nature. Though he has repeatedly tried to change this image, he has failed big time. He even tried sharing podium with Muslim leaders but instead ended up giving his opposition a brilliant way to attack him, when he refused to wear a hat offered to him by the Muslim leader. So, the biggest hurdle that is between him and the top job is his attitude towards minority.

So, will the NaMo mantra work in 2014 if he persists with his attitude or will he change? Only time will tell.

Now, the second guest of our article is Mr.Rahul Gandhi-educated, sympathetic, “secular” and young, though one wonders if 46 years can be deemed as young! Well, post the 2009 election, when Narendra Modi was not ‘popularizing’ himself, it was Rahul Gandhi who was doing this job- be it travelling in a local train or having dinner with a dalit. Yes, the ‘gesture’ was perfectly fine in its place but still it was just a gesture. You have to feel for them through heart to connect with them. If he is a people’s messenger and has a simple living, then How can he explain celebrating his birthday abroad every year? Why has he so far dodged the questions on corruption charges imposed on his ministers? These are only few of the many questions unanswered by our “secular” leader.

Finally, to conclude, I would say that

“No Man Is Perfect”

Thus, I leave it upon you to decide who will edge the other to gain your vote. Remember every vote matters. May the best man win.
