LK's the man: GVL Narasimha Rao

GVL Narasimha Rao is a psephologist and a member of the BJP National Executive. Here is his editorial page column in today's Hindustan Times. In television debates and editorial columns these days, one often comes across the theme of whether LK Advani has the best credentials to be India’s prime minister. I ask a different question: does any other leader today have better credentials than Advani to be India’s PM? I think not. Advani is a self-made man who has built the BJP into a national party and developed it into an alternate pole to the Congress in national politics. He also brought to power the first-ever, stable pan-Indian coalition, the NDA, in 1998. In terms of integrity, Advani has an unblemished record in public life. When the former PM PV Narasimha Rao falsely implicated him in the infamous Hawala episode, Advani resigned as an MP instantly and vowed not to fight any election until he was cleared of the charges. Advani’s is, perhaps, the only case in Indian politics where a leader has sacrificed his own ambition when he was ‘all-powerful’ to pave the way for anointing a charismatic Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the prime ministerial candidate. This was an act of self-abnegation much more important than Sonia Gandhi’s ‘sacrifice’ considering that she continued to wield authority while Advani allowed Vajpayee to emerge stronger than him politically. Advani’s age is held against him by his critics. But even at 81, his physical stamina, agility, alertness, attitude and discipline are noteworthy. To lead a nation of this vastness and complexity, people consider age, experience and maturity as prerequisites. Which is why age is not held against leaders like Sheila Dikshit, who at 72 continues to be the choice for Delhi’s people. Critics and rivals have made unwarranted comparisons between Advani and Vajpayee to show that the former is not as popular. But Advani is not fighting elections against Vajpayee. So why the comparison? Is anyone comparing Sonia with Indira Gandhi or Rahul with Rajiv Gandhi in terms of their popular appeal? In a recent poll in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi, Advani led in all three — by a wide margin in Madhya Pradesh (over 25 percentage points), and by a considerable margin in Rajasthan (11-15), while in Delhi, he trailed Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi (but not Sonia Gandhi) by 12 percentage points. Advani’s problem is not with the electorate, but with the media that have never understood and, therefore, judged him correctly.

shri Lal krishna advani =

shri Lal krishna advani = shri Lal bhadhur shastri.Both are great visionary earlier

In his first broadcast as Prime Minister, on 11 June 1964, Shastri stated[17]:

“ There comes a time in the life of every nation when it stands at the cross-roads of history and must choose which way to go. But for us there need be no difficulty or hesitation, no looking to right or left. Our way is straight and clear – the building up of a socialist democracy at home with freedom and prosperity for all, and the maintenance of world peace and friendship with all nations.
he commanded a great deal of respect in the Indian populace, and he used it to advantage in pushing the Green Revolution in India; which directly led to India becoming a food-surplus nation, although he did not live to see it. During the 22-day war with Pakistan, Lal Bahadur Shastri created the slogan of "Jai Jawan Jai Kisan" underlining the need to boost India's food production. Apart from emphasizing the Green Revolution, he was instrumental in promoting the White Revolution. Greatly impressed by a visit to the Kaira district in October 1964, he urged the rest of the country to learn from the successful experiment at Anand. The National Dairy Development Board was formed in 1965 during his tenure as Prime Minister.

Now Shri LK.Advani is having a vision of bringing back india's black money lying in swiss bank for nearly 40-45 yrs which will definitely revive india to the level of super power on which congress is mum giving all excuses.
He is self determined leader who announced task force to bring back the black money from swiss bank ,for real leaders post or PM post is not important but the feeling to do something good for the country & its people is very important which is 101 % is in Shri LK Advani.

Surely LK is the man of the

Surely LK is the man of the hour and there is actually no worthy alternative

it is totally right that

it is totally right that presently L.K.Advani is the only person who take BHARAT into the right direction.but only thing which is required is his commitment in framing of UNIFORM CIVIL CODE.the framers of our constitution also have stated in our constitution under article 44 under the chapter of directive principles of state policy to frame UNIFORM CIVIL CODE.UCC can solve a lot of present and future problems.
just bring this thing in the election manifesto and tell people about its mention in our costitution.

Good analysis. Advaniji may

Good analysis. Advaniji may be the best choice in terms of experience. However what is the fallback with bjp in case he fails on account of health. Why cant we have advaniji vs someone else poll in bjp similar to obama vs hillary. Let democracy and thought prevail even inside party.
