Parrikar Must Not Only Profess But Show His Love For Goa by Jose Maria Miranda

Parrikar Must Not Only Profess But Show His Love For Goa by Jose Maria Miranda

It is really amazing how fiercely the political parties, whilst in the Opposition, attack the Government on certain issues, but when their turn comes to rule and prove their abilities in tackling the very same problems, they fail miserably and eventually toe the very same line of their predecessors. This was very much evident when Parrikar came to power in 2012 and now, more recently when Narendra Modi took charge at the Centre.

It was but natural for the BJP to capitalize on the blunders committed by the UPA, but they did it with such expertise that one needs to extol their organizational abilities. The way they projected themselves as the only possible saviour of the country, and the manner in which they carried out their campaign particularly through the electronic media, - which until today gives wide, if not live coverage, of every step Modi takes abroad – cannot but be admired, irrespective of our views about the Party. Modi now seems to be on a popularity hunt, hoping perhaps that the world will eventually acknowledge him as a leader of the stature of Gandhi or Nehru
