Congress has had a decisive victory……Dr Manmohan Singh as Prime Minister again…which is a good thing….!!I personally think Dr Manmohan Singh would be a better prime minster than LK Advani…..
I was just thinking who would be potential good Prime Minister for the country…the names that are throw up in the news channels
Rahul Ghandi….maybe not…..cause I don’t think he has done much of actual work ( but then I guess no politicians actually do any work!) so that should really not be a deterrent!
However I personally think Rahul will not become a prime minister…cause his family is afraid….every one in the Gandhi family who has become a prime minster has been assassinated….Rajiv….Indra….so I think his family would be scared to let up go there and take up the top post…
Narendra Modi….well the question does not arise since the BJP has lost so badly this time but again this post is not about exploring who would be a good prime ministerial candidate for this term as that looks pretty much decided and Dr Manmohan Singh is going to have the top job unless something goes grossly wrong..this post is about looking at politicians in general and saying who I would like to see as the Prime – Minster of my country
I personally feel that Narendra Modi has proved to be a good administrator in Gujarat….and if he is given the top post in India…he would do a wonderful job and reduce bureaucracy and lead the country to greater heights….but he has made a mistake…..the Gujarat riots and the anti Muslim sentiment was a mistake which is going to cost him the top job in the future even though he may be the most capable candidate. India stands for secularism….and we can’t have our Prime- Minister who does not stand for that
P Chidambaram– Well at least I have not heard of people/press talking about Mr P- Chidambaram as a potential Prime- Minister and I wonder why!? I think he would be very effective on the top job. He has proved himself as the Finance Minster and now he has also proved himself as the Home Minister. He has a clean image…he is highly educated…he is charismatic… he is poised…(the poise really showed when the shoe was thrown at him …he handled the situation beautifully) he can take tough calls which may not be popular but required (sending IPL out of India was a tough call to take and he did it despite all the pressure). He has all the positive qualities that Dr Manmohan Singh stands for( clean, educated, intelligent)….and also over comes the negative traits of Dr Manmohan Singh (I somehow cannot see people calling Chidambaram a puppet of a weak Prime- Minister..he has a persona which is exactly opposite of week!)
I think congress/press should start looking at Mr Chidambaram for the top post someday.
