Operation NaMo: Narendra Modi’s micro-management ferries 15,000 pilgrims to safety

published on June 23, 2013

Narendra Modi’s presence in Uttarakhand has no doubt left opposition parties jittery. But adding to their night mare is the fact that the democratically elected leader of Gujarat reached the flood ravaged Uttarakhand and did not restrict himself to just an aerial supervision. Before he flew back to his home state, Modi ferried to safety 15000 pilgrims stranded there. At a time when state governments like the UDF Government in Kerala is under flak for allegedly neglecting the plight of stranded Sivagiri pilgrims at Kedarnath, Modi’s swift action has left many awe-struck.

In what is likely to have left the allegedly inefficient administrative management of Uttarakhand gaping, Narendra Modi and his team swung into action to ferry stranded pilgrims pilgrims to safer places.

Having reached Uttarakhand on Friday evening, Modi is said to have had an extensive meeting with his team late into the night, chalking out an efficient plan of action to save the distraught Gujaratis, some of whom had pleaded to him personally for help. The meeting which lasted till 1.00 am comprised of five IAS, one IPS, one IFS and two GAS (Gujarat Administrative Service) officers. Two DSPs and five police inspectors were also part of Modi’s delegation.

80 Toyota Innovas were pressed into service, which saw the pilgrims taken to safer places. Four Boeings were also arranged for emergency. Adding to this were 25 luxury buses that carried other pilgrims to Delhi.

All this, supervised personally by two of the senior-most IAS officers of Gujarat, one officer stationed in Delhi and the other in Uttarakhand.

Modi not only meet his Uttarakhand counterpart, but also proposed a complete “rebuild of the Kedarnath temple using the latest technology available that no natural calamity would ever shake it again.” Sources state that Bahuguna has swept the matter under the carpet.

Yet another instance of Modi magic, it speaks volumes on his trademark style of micro-management. His supporters affirm that this is the need of the hour for the nation.

All that the apparently sore Congress could mutter was, “See, that’s what we mean. His model works only for Gujaratis.”
