The Fad­ing Aura of the Helms­man

Tehelka - - 20 - BAL GOVIND,

Naren­dra Modi’s aura is bound to di­min­ish con­sid­er­ing that he has been at the helm of Gu­jarat for more than a decade. How­ever, what mat­ters at the end of the day is who will tri­umph in the Assem­bly poll, and it will be Modi, de­spite his old col­league Keshub­hai Pa­tel float­ing his own out­fit.

PAINT­ING MODI

Re­fer to ‘The Iron Man Be­gins To Rust’ by Rana Ayyub, 10 Novem­ber. Thank you for your won­der­ful ar­ti­cle on Naren­dra Modi. But I beg to dif­fer with you on your con­stant cri­tique of him. Moral­ity and neu­tral­ity de­mand that you also speak out against the anti-Sikh ri­ot­ers sup­ported by the Congress.

VENKATESH KU­MAR NA, ON EMAIL I have lost count of the num­ber of ar­ti­cles on Modi pub­lished in TE­HELKA in the past few months. Ir­re­spec­tive of whether you write good or bad about him, the pho­to­graphs still give him all the pub­lic­ity he could have hoped for. The world knows of his mis­deeds and his cul­pa­bil­ity in the reck­less slaugh­ter of the Mus­lims in Gu­jarat. So please let him be con­demned. I feel bad to see Gopalkr­ishna Gandhi in the same edition. His pic­ture on the cover would have been more ap­pro­pri­ate.
