Congress MP Vijay Darda calls Narendra Modi 'Lion of Gujarat'.

NEW DELHI: In a major embarrassment for Congress, its Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Darda
on sunday praised Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, calling him a
"lion" . Vijay Darda, a Rajya Sabha MP from Maharashtra, who is also
editor-in-chief of a media house, made the remarks at an award function
in Ahmedabad, which was also attended by the chief minister.



Darda shared the dais with Modi at the function where the Congress
MP was given the Tarun Kranti award for his services rendered to the
society through the media. As people cheered the chief minister, Darda
said, "The kind of environment created over here... I know that this is
due to the roar of Gujarat's lion... Modi's commitment and dedication
towards work bears resemblance to that of a lion."



Realising
the enormity of Darda's blunder, Modi was quick to take a dig at
Congress. "It won't be surprising to read tomorrow's breaking news that
Darda has been served a show-cause notice from the party high command
for praising Modi," the chief minister said, tongue-in-cheek. The
Gujarat chief minister did not leave the opportunity to score some
political points as he targeted the Congress-led government at the
Centre for some of its policies.



"You will be shocked when you
know the type of decisions that are being taken by the central
government. Vijay Darda, a Congress leader is present over here and I
think it is right to say what I feel. They have given a slogan of Pink
Revolution and the Indian government thinks that to earn foreign
exchange...they have to export cow meat... " Pink Revolution, envisaged
on the lines of the White Revolution involving milk and milk products,
aims at enhancing the quality and investment in the meat and poultry
processing sector.



BJP's Balbir Punj added: "Darda is brave
enough to voice what most leaders feel." Darda later retracted his
statement , insisting that he was quoted out of context. "I was just
expressing my heart-felt feelings at a religious function... In our
culture, we always speak good about the host and this is a religious
function, so none of my comments should be misconstrued as political
remarks . I haven't called him a national saint.



If you would had heard my speech in the Parliament , then I had told something about Narendra Modi
that with lots of expectations, his father must have kept his name as
Narendra , so that he will follow the path of Vivekananda," he said.
Congress was guarded in its response . "Let us ascertain the facts from
the in-charge of the party affairs in the state. Only then it could be
seen what could be done," Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said.

Lion of gujarat
Vijay Darda is the latest in the growing list of Modi fans. Our own Abdullakutty said the same thing in a different language when he was a comrade. Though now he has changed his affiliation and colour of flag, I am sure he has not changed his opinion about Modi. Shahid Siddiqui, editor of Nai Duniya and disciple of Moulavi Mulayam Singhji printed Modi’s statement that he be hanged in public if he has done any wrong to Muslims in bold letters in his weekly. For this act of Siddiqui, Samajwadi Party distanced itself from him. What a joke! SP leaders should not forget that public memory is not that short. Mulayam Singhji’s bonhomie with Kalyan Singhji is still fresh in our memory. BJP should not waste time in projecting Modi as the prime ministerial candidate in the next general elections. JD(U) should be told to take it or leave it. It is a risk worth taking. Modi has shown he is an able administrator. He knows how to get things done. His style of functioning may look a bit dictatorial, but all successful leaders have that trait in them.
"You must have an iron will, if you would cross the ocean. You must be strong enough to pierce mountains."
