Last Sunday, I went to Ahmedabad from Mumbai to cast my vote in Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation election. Along with Ahmedabad, five other cities too were observing civic polls including Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, Jamnagar and Bhavnagar .. The way dissatisfaction and disappointment have been shown by BJP workers for the ticket distribution, it seemed that this election will be an uphill task for BJP as BJP had captured all six municipal corporation five years ago .. So it was predicted that anti-establishment, anti-incumbency and demotivated BJP workers may make BJP’s win very tough ..
But this guy named Narendra Modi has this uncanny knack of surprising people and crushing his opponents .. He went to public with one and only one agenda and that is the development and progressive work that he and his government are doing since last 10 years of his regime .. And he was not made disappointed again by people of Gujarat .. People of Gujarat has again shown faith in NaMo and BJP .. The results were out today and BJP has won all the six Municipal Corporations (Ahmedabad, Rajkot, vadodara, Surat, JamNagar and Bhavnagar) with thumping majority .. Urban voters of Gujarat has given clear mandate to BJP and NaMo .. Congress is stunned and crushed .. Congress has no escape route and it might have to do some rigorous soul-searching to save its very existence in Gujarat ..
Final Results of 2010 Civic Polls of Gujarat:
Ahmedabad (Total : 189)
BJP wins 149
Congress wins 37 seats
others win 3 seats
Surat (Total : 114)
BJP wins 98 seats
Congress wins 14
Others get 2
Rajkot (Total : 69)
BJP wins 58
Vadodara (Total : 75)
BJP wins 61
Jamnagar (Total : 57)
BJP wins 35
Bhavnagar (Total : 51)
BJP wins 41
Despite of the relentless attack on and slanderous campaign against Narendra Modi by electronic media, Congress and BJP-Rebels, he has always come out winner time and again .. Under his leadership, Gujarat has taken giant strides as far as development, infrastructure and progress are concerned .. He has made Gujarat one of the foremost progressive states .. Even the Planning Commission has praised the Gujarat government for the judicial way of spending the money allotted to that state .. He has created confidence in investors in various projects that Gujarat is a safe place for investment .. He has proved this definition ‘Good Governance is Bad Politics‘ wrong again and again ..
Other feathers in the cap of NaMo:
- 2002 Assembly Election (LandSlide Victory — 2/3rd Majority)
- 2005 Civic Polls (Wins all six Municipal Corporation with huge margin — 2/3rd Majority)
- 2007 Assembly Election (Thumping Win — 2/3rd Majority)
- 2008-2010 Bye Elections (Won Congress Bastion like Danta, Chotila, Kathlal etc which BJP had never won)
- 2010 Civic Polls (Results are out today and BJP wins all six corporation with 2/3rd majority)
Narendra Modi is one of the most articulate, intelligent and gifted public servants currently in office in India. Without a doubt, the credit for Gujarat’s progress and development goes to NaMo .. We Gujjus owe him a huge debt for his courage, tenacity and dedication in putting Gujarat back on its feet after earthquake and godhra-riots ..
** Take a bow LEADER **
I will conclude by mentioning the lesson that I learned by watching and analysing Narendra Modi’s life :
“IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND KEEP WORKING FOR YOUR GOALS, YOUR EFFORTS WILL REAP RICH DIVIDENDS INSPITE OF ALL THE ADVERSITIES”
