I was a staunch Modi hater. I remembers reading news papers during Gujarat riots and giving up reading them as I felt depressed.
But something changed during last few months, most of my friends are strong Modi supporters. They convinced me that most things I have read about Modi, even during the riots time is creation of main stream media and Modi is actually innocent, true nationalist.
Then again I read today one of Modi's 2002 speech and I am back to the square one.http://www.cjponline.org/hatespmodi/CM%20SPEECH-BECHARJI[TEXT%7D.pdf
I do not believe Modi is a good Prime ministerial candidate. If he became Prime minister, it will divide India. I also doubt how genuine Modi's development claims are, he has a great PR department, run by mckinsey consultants. I did not find a good unbiased article comparing Gujarat development vs rest of India's development.
Obviously congress is worse and should not be given another chance but that does not mean Modi should become Prime minister. I hope Aam Aadami Party wins significant number of seats in next Loksabha election and give a good third alternative.
