Rahul Kumar Das for आपका Times
It has been widely speculated that Anandiben Patel, the senior most minister during Modi `s rule in Gujarat will take over as the chief minister of Gujarat. And if it happens she would be the first ever woman chief minister of Gujarat. It has been heard that most of the MLA`S in Gujarat approve of this decision.
There has been wide spread speculation about which port folio would go to whom in Modi`s government. It has been said that Rajnath Singh would get the defence ministry. Arun Jaitley might get the finance ministry. Sushma Swaraj is expected got the foreign ministry. Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar would be bestowed with the home ministry.Other senior leaders like Murli Manohar Joshi may be appointed as the speaker, Nitin Gadkhari may get Surface transport ministry. Venkaiah Naidu is expected to get the agricultural ministry and Ananth Kumar may get the parliamentary affairs ministry.Ravi Shankar Prasad may get the law ministry. Rajiv Pratab Rudy may get the Civil aviation ministry. And Shahnawaz Hussain may get the minority affairs ministry. And Yashwant Sinha may be appointed as the chairman of the planning commission.
It has been noticed that this time a large of Muslims too had voted for the BJP. In the Chandni Chowkh, BJP candidate Harsh Vardhan bagged 17,623 .In the north east Delhi constituency , BJP candidate Manoj Tiwari enjoys Muslim support as well.In West Delhi as well , Parvesh Singh Verma too won by 80,529 votes.The BJP has won a massive victory with a huge numbers of muslim votes.In this scenario it would be pretty interesting to see how the BJP delivers its commitment to people.
It was under Modi `s leader in Gujarat that 48% of the children were found to malnourished, very high women`s maternal death rate and poverty rate with 57% in the tribal areas and massive environmental degradation.According to the 2010 UNDP report Gujarat lacks in the health sector, educational system , income levels ,etc.
In my opinion if Modi has to prove his critics wrongs than he will have to focus on a broader and more holistic notion of development. Just merely working for the hig corporation and focussing on the defence would not do. He `ll have to ensure political freedom to his people and he has to ensure minimal level of education and nourishment to his people. He will have to work for the emancipation of women. Just working for his vote bank would not do and his critic would keep pointing out the same loopholes in his notion of development.
