Gujarat election results 2012: Narendra Modi baiters bite the dust

Ahmedabad: As Narendra Modi stamped his authority over Gujarat on Thursday with a third consecutive win in the Assembly Elections, those opposing his impending prime ministerial bid now have foot in their mouth.

The BJP appeared set to return to power with a landslide – over 120 of the total 182 seats.

If this turns out to be the final result, then the BJP would have even bettered its 2007 tally.

Prior to the counting day, many within the BJP had said that only a better tally than 2007 elections would add strength to Modi’s PM bid. They had stressed that even if Modi wins but the victory margin is lower than the last time, his bid would then suffer a setback.

However, Modi has silenced all his critics. Even though many BJP leaders have sought to describe the Gujarat win as a modest one and a collective victory, including Rajiv Pratap Rudy, none can dispute the fact that if not for Modi, the win would not have been a landslide.

And there are many within the BJP who have openly endorsed Modi for PM, including Smriti Irani.

From today onwards, it would be difficult for the top BJP leadership to ignore Modi’s candidature for the PM’s post any further.

Also, in Gujarat, all his baiters, including Keshubhai Patel, IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt’s wife Shweta Bhatt, Arjun Modhwadia and Dr Kanubhai Kalsaria, have in some way or the other bitten dust.

While former BJP leader and state CM Keshubhai Patel’s GPP has managed to win only two seats, state Congress chief Modhwadia has lost election. Shweta Bhatt, who fought election on a Congress ticket, and BJP rebel Dr Kanubhai Kalsaria too have met the same fate.

The people of India were unfortunate for not having the First Iron Man of India (Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel) as a Prime Minister. Atleast now we have a chance of electing the SECOND IRON MAN OF INDIA Shri Narendra Modi as our Prime Minister. We should elect him as our next PM

This country now desperately needs person like Swami Vivekananda to stand upright and fight against evil forces in the society. Mr Narendra Modi is the one who follows the path of Swami Vivekananda. His Tweet ``No need of looking behind, FORWARD! We want infinite energy, infinite courage, infinite patience`` amply proves this. He should be our next Prime Minister.

Congrats for a third time land slide victory. I wont call it as victory of Hindutva as many people have commented. Coz` Mr. Modi did not seek this third time mandate on Hindutva mantra, but he called for supporting him for continuing with the growth and development of Gujrat which has been embarked on by him. While the Indian GDP grows at a snails pace under the so called Great economists Mr Singh and Mr PC, Gujarat has been achieving a GDP rate of more than 10% for the last 4 or 5 years. We are eagerly awaiting Mr Modi to be named as PM candidate of BJP.
