Comparison: Sonia Gandhi vs Narendra Modi



When the comparison lies between these two people as the Prime Ministerial Candidate, on one side we see a sharp political brain with the enormous backing from the party and on the other side we have somebody who is deemed to be the epitome of a developing Nation but lesser support from his party contemporary. Thus we have Sonia Gandhi from Congress Major UPA Govt. on one side while on the other side we have BJP’s trump card Narendra Modi. Thus let us have a small comparison between the achievements, supports, roles and attributes of these two political veterans

1.     Origin and Political backing

An Italian by birth, Sonia Gandhi have moved on to India after her marriage to former Prime Minister of India – Rajiv Gandhi. She enjoys incomparable backing from the entire UPA coalition team along with Congress and thus having is considered to have the final word in Congress. The present Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, is looked upon as the icon of a developing State/Nation. He has been recognized over China, USA and many other reputed countries for his extraordinary work for Gujarat. But the main problem with him being a Prime Ministerial candidate is the lack of proper support from both BJP and the NDA coalition. It is an open secret that the veteran BJP leader L.K Advani and Modi does not sync up together properly. Moreover, CM of Bihar Nitish Kumar have openly opposed Modi as a Prime Ministerial candidate. Modi somehow needs to gather the confidence of these two people if he really wants to grab the supreme seat. However, the only ray of hope, from support perspective, seems to be coming from BJP President Nitin Gadkari who have shown his support towards Mr. Modi.
2.     Work Done / Achievements / Activities

Sonia Gandhi’s role is more on a managerial track rather than doing the developmental work herself. Mrs. Gandhi has proved her ability in Politics during the selection of Prime Ministerial candidate during 2004 election. That decision of her to project Mr. Manmohan Singh as PM of India is considered to be one of the most vital decision to success of UPA till now. So from the point of taking diplomatic decisions, she is incomparable. When the point of Developmental works comes in Narendra Modi stands out among any number of people in India. He is known worldwide for the phenomenal work he has done for Gujarat. Agriculture, Manufacturing, IT, Tourism, Social development – infact he has worked for the development of the state in every field.
So if the point of Activities is concerned, Mr. Modi is the only choice in whole India.
3.     Support from India Against Corruption  (IAC) group.

Although IAC has not transformed into a mass group till now, still we cannot rule out their support for winning the election. From the recent activities and agitation by IAC and Baba Ramdev, it is quite clear that no member of Congress is going to get any support from this team. Although members of Team Anna like Arvind Kejriwal have already shown that they are not in sync with Modi, but others like Baba Ramdev and Modi have been seen to be in the same stage, together. So partial support to Mr. Modi is expected.
4.     Negativity

Inspite of being in India for over 3 decade and having such an upper hand in Congress, the one point that has been haunting Mrs. Gandhi to be projected as a PM candidate is that she is from a foreign country by birth. I don’t know whether there is any legal obligation for a foreign national to be the PM of India, but it is really an issue for her. It is not a hidden fact that BJP does not have a clear support from one section of the society and vice-versa. So before the elections also, this section will obviously think of their future and safety and thus the BJP will most probably lose more that 20 Crore votes without any fight at all.
Another Important fact is that although court has cleared his name from 2002 Gujarat riot case, but it does not seems to stop haunting Modi every now and then.

These are some of the points, but definitely not all. This is just a small observation from a neutral point of view and never a judgment. I would appreciate more and more views on this which will help me in clearing my personal doubts as well.
