Union min­is­ter NITIN GAD­KARI warned the politi­cians who in­vei­gle peo­ple into vot­ing for them by spin­ning tales of a glo­ri­ous, if il­lu­sory, fu­ture, to watch out. Those same vot­ers, he said, will turn ag­gres­sive when those prom­ises prove false. Surely he couldn’t mean Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi. After all, Gad­kari is ru­moured to be the RSS’s pref­er­ence for the top job, should the BJP’s ma­jor­ity drop in the gen­eral elec­tion. Or, as the BJP in­sists, could he have been re­fer­ring only to the Congress and Rahul Gandhi, with whom Gad­kari was seen en­grossed in a con­ver­sa­tion at the Repub­lic Day pa­rade? Re­cently, Gad­kari called on the BJP’s lead­er­ship to face the flaws ex­posed by the de­feats in a se­ries of assem­bly elec­tions. He also spoke ad­mir­ingly of Jawa­har­lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. Bona fide ev­i­dence, in the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cli­mate, of con­spir­acy!
