Sam Pitroda’s Di­as­pora

Rahul turns to di­as­pora

Gfiles - - BRIC-A-BRAC -

IF the tide of pol­i­tics turns the ta­ble, will Gujarat and Gu­jaratis be again in­stru­men­tal in choos­ing the new Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia. It may not be far­fetched to say that the po­lit­i­cal sur­vival of Amit Shah and Naren­dra Modi depends on the out­come of the Gujarat assem­bly elec­tions. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi too has re­alised this fact. As per sources, Rahul has adopted a two-fold strat­egy. He has ac­ti­vated him­self in Gujarat and is also work­ing onn an­other front of Non-Res­i­dent In­di­ans, a core con­stituency of Mr Modi. The In­dian di­as­pora has all along been clam­our­ing for at­ten­tion­tion and Modi gave a voice to them even with­out vis­it­ing with a vast net­wor­ket­work of Gu­jaratis. But all Gu­jaratis or mem­bers of the In­dian di­as­pora arere not Modi sup­port­ers. Rahul has re­alised this and re­cently vis­ited the US to cul­ti­vate the at­ten­tion-seek­ing di­as­pora. Gu­jaratis across the world are very ac­tive in busi­ness and they dom­i­nate in most of the ar­eas of econ­omy in their re­spec­tive abodes. Gu­jaratis also dom­i­nate and dic­tate the pol­i­tics sit­ting across the bor­der. Most of the so­cial me­dia sup­port­ers of Modi are the mem­bers of In­dian di­as­pora. As per the plan, Rahul will tour across the world and mo­bilise the In­dian di­as­pora and ex­pose Modi and his poli­cies. Sur­pris­ingly, the Chanakya of the plan is none other than the Gu­jarati Sam Pitroda who is a men­tor of Rahul Gandhi. Sam has big­ger plans for Rahul in the days to come. Wait and watch.
