Last week , Narendra Modi, the Gujarat CM and the prime ministerial candidate of one of the leading opposition parties in the country was in Hyderabad as part of his on-going political campaign. Strongly inspired from Obama’s style, Modiji talked about all the good things that would happen once his party came to power. From criticizing to appreciating the people for their patience and urging them to inspire the change for the upcoming elections, Modi’s speech held the audience spell bound. Whether it was the emotional connect, the charisma of the leader, the so-called success story of Gujarat or merely his orating skills, Modi had the audience asking for more.
His political campaign and its reach are growing by leaps and bounds. But, will this turn tables? This is a question that only time can answer. While Congress is a seasoned player, Modi is relatively younger. However, his body of work in Gujarat has impressed people across the country. Growing as the people’s leader, Modi has set his aspirations high. Only time will tell, if the people of the country will dampen his spirits or add fuel to his aspirations.
