On December 1 2013, strongly pitching for Modi, Swaminathan S. Anklesaria Aiyar has written in Times of India, “What do they expect Modi can achieve as prime minister? Most say "Woh logon ko seedha kar dega" (he will straighten people out). This suggests a popular longing for decisive and purposeful governance, something ManmohanSingh has clearly not provided. People want a strong leader who can discipline all the rascals in politics and the bureaucracy.”
Dear Aiyar, are you blind? Can’t you see Modi’s own brigade of Rascals, like Amit Shah, Dinu Bogha Solanki, Purushottam Solanki, CR Patil, and et al?
