Prime Minister Narendra Modi is an intelligent man. Or so, the country believes. His is a great orator who loves to see the public swing to his moves and talk. But, as a public personality, you are also likely to make a few mistakes when you are being watched round-the-clock.
Recently, when the Prime Minister was addressing BJP party workers in Andhra Pradesh through a video conference, he fired a slew of arrows towards TDP Chief N. Chandrababu Naidu for making way for his son, Nara Lokesh. "The CM is so fixated with the rise of his son that he doesn't realise how his politics and corruption can lead to sunset to the state. The Alliance of Opposition Parties is an arrangement of family-ruled parties," Modi said, in response to a BJP karyakarta's question.
However, one does not fail to notice how Modi cleverly left out YSR Congress Chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy who is the son of former CM of AP, Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy. Even Jaganmohan Reddy stepped into politics after his father, which makes his political entry too a dynasty driven one. In Telangana too, KCR and his family have been ruling the roost. Netizens and people who have observed this reasoning of Modi have been questioning about why Modi was selective in his criticism of dynastic politics, while the same is being repeated in Telangana too.
While it is not about criticising the TDP or YSRCP or TRS or any other party, a Prime Minister making such comments about one particular party reflects badly on his position as the Prime Representative of this country. Will the PM please take note?
