Urgent call from Chief of Defence
Apparently, there was an urgent call from the Chief of Defence and so, Mr. Modi, like the responsible person he is, stopped his artful description of NCP as Naturally Corrupt Party and answered his cell-phone.
He silently listened to the Defence Chief’s concerns for a whole minute and then sought to assuage them using his infinite wit, “Is route ki sabhi lainen vyast hain. Kripya kuch der baad koshish karen.” He laughed at his own joke, mumbling, “Man, I crack myself up sometimes” and then with a grave face, returned promptly to the mike to continue his Sharad Pawar bashing.
“One nation, one party”
If experts are to be believed, the only reason the BJP leader has been campaigning really hard in Maharashtra recently is for the progress of India as a nation. “One nation, one party is our motto.” Amit Shah told NTMN as he boarded his private chopper for campaigning in remote locations of the country.
After the rally, we caught up with the BJP leader, Narendra Modi, and he got candid for the first time in a very long time. He said he really enjoyed his part-time job of being the PM of India. “I feel like I’m doing a service to my country. Social service is important, but the job that pays you must come first, right?”
Development still the number one priority, in speeches and rallies
He also said that development will always be his number one priority, in rallies and speeches. He was non-committal beyond that point on the matter. When further quizzed on the need to campaign at this point, the BJP leader started throwing jargon like Gujarat and technology. So, this reporter decided to ignore the response and asked him if there was a conflict of interest in the position that he holds.
“No conflict of interest”
The BJP leader got agitated at this question and responded, “There is no conflict of interest. These are very separate things. I am the BJP leader whenever the Government does something good. The rest of the times, I am the PM of India. Simple as that. Now, let me get back to work. I am the only one who does anything around here anyway.”
