With an ex­haust­ing poll cam­paign com­ing to an end and re­sults be­ing de­clared on Fri­day, Aam Aadmi Party (AAM) ide­o­logue Yo­gen­dra Ya­dav spoke to Ri­tika Cho­pra about his ex­pec­ta­tions and what he thinks of BJP’s prime min­is­te­rial can­di­date Naren­dra Modi. Edited ex­cerpts: not medi­ocre, prod­uct was sold was ab­so­lutely bril­liant. And I say this with­out any moral ap­proval of what hap­pened. It was ide­o­log­i­cal spin-doc­tor­ing which pre­sented Modi as a re­former even though he had no track record of it. He has a track record of be­ing pro-busi­ness, but that is com­pletely dif­fer­ent from eco­nomic re­form. There was a lot of white­wash­ing of Mr Modi’s track record vis a vis mi­nori­ties. With it went the be­low-the-belt cam­paign – made-up ru­mours and lies spread on so­cial me­dia. This was part of the ‘sell Modi’ strat­egy, which has worked.
