Default India's Prime Minister in 2014 - Narendra Modi

Who'll be our Next PM, Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi?

If Modi becomes our next PM, will he be able to do a Gujarat to whole India?
(Forget Godhra, the development & Progress of Gujarat under N.Modi is tremendous)

US Congress Report Says

As the debate on potential prime ministerial contenders for the 2014 elections picks up in India, a US Congressional report says it might just turn out to be a direct contest between controversial Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

A latest report on India by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), a bipartisan and independent research wing of the US Congress, finds Modi a strong prime ministerial candidate for the opposition BJP in 2014, while at the same time discussing the prospect of the Congress putting up Rahul Gandhi for the position.

However, the report which gives a detailed account of international political dimensions of India, does not clearly state it would be a Modi vs Gandhi affair in 2014.


US Congressional report says India might be looking at a Rahul vs Modi affair in 2014 polls.
"The 2009 polls may have represented a coming out party of sorts for the younger Gandhi, who many expect to be put forward as Congress' prime ministerial candidate in scheduled 2014 elections," said the report dated September 1, which was made public yesterday by the Federation of American Scientists.

CRS reports are meant for consumption of US lawmakers and are generally not available in the public domain.

However, many a times due to efforts of certain think-tanks and non-governmental organisations, these are made available in the public domain.

"Yet this heir-apparent remains dogged by questions about his abilities to lead the party, given a mixed record as an election strategist, uneasy style in public appearances, and reputation for gaffes," the CRS said.

Party chief and UPA chair, Sonia Gandhi is seen to wield considerable influence over the coalition's policy making process, it said.

"Her foreign origins have presented an obstacle and likely was a major factor in her surprising 2004 decision to decline the prime ministership," the report said, adding that Rahul is widely seen as the most likely heir to Congress leadership.

On the BJP's front, on the other hand, Modi is among the party's likely candidates for the prime ministership, the report said.

"At present, the BJP president is Nitin Gadkari, a former Maharashtran official known for his avid support of privatisation. Although still in some disorder in 2011, there are signs that the BJP has made changes necessary to be a formidable challenger in scheduled 2014 polls," it said.

"These include a more effective branding of the party as one focused on development and good governance rather than emotive, Hindutva-related issues, and Gadkari's success at quelling intra-party dissidence and, by some accounts, showing superior strategising and organising skills as compared to his predecessors," the report said.

"Yet among the party's likely candidates for the prime ministership in future elections is Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who has overseen impressive development successes in his state, but who is also dogged by controversy over his alleged complicity in lethal anti-Muslim rioting there in 2002," it said.

At the same time CRS brings to the notice of lawmakers that Modi has in the past been denied a US visa under an American law barring entry for foreign government officials found to be complicit in severe violations of religious freedom.

I don't see.....Rahul Ghandi has even potential to be a Chief minster. All he has is his political background nothing else. He has nothing of his own.

I think Narendra Modi is far better than rahul gandhi. Modi is seen as a strict straight guy and appear to hav strong will power to make decisions. Aaj manmohan is seen with weak will power. Rahul was good earlier bt ab vo bhi neta ban gaya hai. i voted for congress but next time nahi.

N I think if modi comes Pakistan se toh hisab kitab kar hi dega vo..

If BJP comes in power.. Modi/Nitish may get good position in cabinet.. but LK Advani could be future PM...

Lots of senior leaders in Cogress also waiting to become PM... RG may not be suitable due to lack of experience in politics

Rahul Gandhi is still a fresher or a newbie . Was been born with a silver spoon . He has been constantly shielded by the Congress coterie and has chosen ( maybe, intentionally ) not to air his opinions on few/many very critical issues . Could be too immature for that post .

Modi after Gujarat riots is a big NO NO, though he seems to have worked wonders for this state & it seems to be set for an exponential growth .
