    Ahmedabad:Narendra Modi's party may not be sure of whether to pick him as its prime ministerial candidate, but the Gujarat Chief Minister is depositing a series of endorsements for their consideration. He was re-elected in December for his fourth consecutive term as chief minister; the European Union confirmed last week that it has ended the boycott that began after the Gujarat riots of 2002; and today, the BJP swept local elections held on Sunday, winning 47 of 75 municipal corporations across the state.

    Headlining today's victory is the Salaya municipality in the Jamnagar district of Saurashtra, where 90 per cent of the population is Muslim. For the 27 seats at stake, the BJP put up 24 Muslim candidates, who were all successful. The Congress, which has won the town elections for decades, did not win a single seat.

    In the state elections in December, Mr Modi had not fielded a single Muslim candidate, allowing the Congress to question his secularism. The BJP had countered that candidates were picked on the basis of whether they were likely to deliver constituencies.

    In recent speeches, Mr Modi has attributed his popularity to what he calls "P2G2" -pro-people good governance. Today's results prove that theory, his party said. "It's a reply to those who have been targeting the chief minister. It's not about religion or caste, it's about good governance. The people of Salaya have voted for good governance,'' commented BJP spokesman Jagdish Bhavsar.

    The area has seen huge investment for a new power project and the modernization and expansion of its port in partnership with the Essar group.

    Now Congress might call these BJP candidates as traitors to their religion and people.
    Its strange on one hand Congress say that everyone is innocent until proven guilty (read Kalmadi, Raja and more than half of Congress leaders) but yet on other hand they leave no stone unturned to brand Modi as a communal figure.

    From example of Gujarat, the religion which was supposed to be "most scarred by Godhra incident " has already moved on past the incident and more towards better governance and better opportunities in growing state. With all the opportunities coming to Gujarat, every person living in Gujarat wants to have his market share for the development and that is positive, but on other hand, other provinces are just plain stagnant, in few years we might have mosquitoes in our state parliaments due to stagnation.

    And it is uncanny, that NAMO has no teachers background and still can deliver speeches without reading, and also indulges in Internet based interaction with people not only of other provinces but other countries. But on other hand, our well educated, ex-professor of delhi unversity teaching Economics (??) and then Governor of RBI and then Finance minister and then Prime minister does not seem to speak anything. Rather he looks like a typical backbencher who really cannot understand what is happening in class during Economics lecture. And every speech that he gives, he does read it, thus the speech is not coming from his belief but from what has been written for him.

    It was during the State Elections in Gujarat, that our "glorious " prime minister said in his speech in Gujarat that Gujarat is not safe.. and strangely Gujarat has not seen major violence or incidents in past many years. But on other hand, it is after the speech of our PM there have been regular incidents of Rape and attempted rape in Delhi inspite of it having more number of security persons per person. And worse, yesterday a cop was beaten up when he tried to help a girl who was being molested. MMS. first try and see what burns below your a$$ before you try to read a speech that declares someones house is burning.. and yes, the smoke that you see in Gujarat is because THE GLASSES THAT YOU ARE WEARING ARE FOGGY AND YOU HAVE NOT CLEANED THEM FOR A DECADE. OR MAYBE YOU HAVE AN EYE PROBLEM. GET WELL SOON MMS.

    Most of the progress in Gujarat is due to its Chief minister's vision and the support of the people from Gujarat both within the state and outside the state who believe in the vision of the Chief minister.

    Gujarat has done it with NO HELP WHATSOEVER FROM YOUR PATHETIC NON FUNCTIONING AND CORRUPT GOVERNMENT.

    By the Way, Gujarat is moving the way China started 20 years ago, with building of good lines of communication (roads and highway) that made products and services move fast and thus help the people to do more business. While the rest of India is exactly where it was just a few years after independence.

    No doubts. Except that you cannot even remotely show that your assertions have an iota of truth.

    That is the hallmark of sickulars.
