NaMo Tales – III
If you are successful and meet NaMo, don’t expect idle chit-chat or expect him to be impressed by your wealth. Some of India’s hotshot brokers found this out when they met him a month before national polls. At the meeting held in NaMo’s Ahmedabad office, the brokers wanted to talk big—stocks, markets and foreign inflows. He wanted to talk small—what are you doing development-wise, he apparently asked the market kings. So, one of them said he’s working for Indians who are persecuted in Pakistan, another said he was building inexpensive homes. NaMo, ET was told, offered land for the scheme, provided it benefitted tribals. Not quite the high jinks conversation the hotshot brokers had expected.
