Let us not be overawed by Modi's victory

सबसे खतरनाक वह चांद होता है

जो हर हत्याकांड के बाद
वीरान हुए आंगनों में चढ़ता है

पर आपकी आंखों में मिर्चों कि तरह नहीं गढ़ता

'In a democracy an electoral defeat is always a sobering moment, but it would be doubly counter-productive for the Congress and the other secular forces to feel overawed by Narendra Modi's victory.

…the Sunday win does not necessarily endow any kind of ideological legitimacy to Mr. Modi's voice nor does it provide a licence to communal forces or even political respectability to his message outside of Gujarat.'

Harish Khare, The Hindu December 24, 2007

Dear Friends,

Pasting below a break up of votes from 33 Gujarat constituencies.

While the whole media except a handful of journalists is under the spell of Modi's magic it is important to register the fact that e.g. In Gandhinagar though 81864 people voted for BJP and they won the seat, there are 78116 people who voted against BJP and Modi.

Not everyone is under his spell in Gujarat. He has won the seats and will have the whole administration in his hand to stifle any dissent but the struggle against the undemocratic, fascist regime will continue.

सबसे खतरनाक वह चांद होता है

जो हर हत्याकांड के बाद
वीरान हुए आंगनों में चढ़ता है

पर आपकी आंखों में मिर्चों कि तरह नहीं गढ़ता

  1. Not everyone is under his spell in Gujarat.Sad. Even in a mostly developed state like Guj, Modi gets only 2/3d majority.
