Senior BJP leader and Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, while moving the political resolution at the party National Executive on Sunday, described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “God’s gift for India” and a “messiah of poor” who “inherited challenges in each and every sector”, but was “steering clear of them”.

Naidu’s remarks, however, were not part of the political resolution that was adopted at the National Executive, and released late evening. Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said earlier that he did not hear Naidu’s speech.

A note released by Naidu’s office highlighted the points on the political resolution he moved: “Narendra Modi is ‘Modifier of Developing India’.  “He is decisive leader, Nationalist politician and provides progressive governance. “India is recognised and respected as the most favoured destination for investment.

“Modi is a god’s gift for India. He is the messiah of the poor. He inherited challenges in each and every sector. He is steering clear of them. “Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi made it to Time Magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in 2015 and now this year 30.”

Naidu also mentioned that Modi has over 18 million Twitter followers and 32 million Facebook likes, and that his “popularity has risen to the new level. His wax statue now will be unveiled in London’s Madame Tussauds museum”.
The political resolution adopted by the meet focused on the government’s initiatives for various sections of society, and its attempts to reach out to people at the grassroots. At a time when the government has been criticised for its handling of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula’s suicide, the economic resolution — though it did not mention Vemula — harped on the government’s initiatives for Dalit entrepreneurs.

“Our government is making efforts to promote Dalit entrepreneurs and raise them as an institution… Stand Up India, Make in India should be linked to the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and women. Each bank branch will have to adopt an entrepreneur from either of these sections who will have to be a job creator,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who briefed reporters on the political and economic resolutions, said.

The party also highlighted the government’s efforts to build memorials to Babasaheb Ambedkar in Maharashtra and London, where he stayed for some time. The National Executive discussed the party’s strategy in the five states going to polls to elect new assemblies. “We will improve our position in all the five states. We will try to increase our voteshare in Bengal,” Jaitley said. He took a dig at the Congress, saying it had “lowered its political ambitions”, and was “quite contended with the role of a tail ender in alliances — be it in Bihar or West Bengal”.

On the NDA government, Jaitley said: “There was a time when the country was being governed without any sense of direction. There was uncertainty and lack of purpose. Now we have a government with a determined leadership, nationalist policies and progressive governance.”

    Oh come on. I generally support the BJP but they need to watch out - this is a bit much. Let psycophancy be the hallmark of the Congress party.

          Most of the Congress leaders are God's curse to India. They do not know anything other than corruption and more corruption.

            This is the plain truth. I am glad Indians are beginning to understand and appreciate it.

              PM Modi is Swami Vivekananda in politics. A normal human being simply can not survive so much abuse and attacks and machinations to bring him down, at every stage of his life. This is precisely the reason hard working people, those who came to know, see a reflection of themselves in PM Modi. It's a battle between good and evil - a real theme of much adored Durga PUJA, which happen to represent aspirations of people in Bengal!
