    Dreams come true for RSS. This was the question during election 2014, why RSS and BJP are depends upon Narendra Modi, why are they going all out to make him win? The Sangh Parivar knew what Narendra Modi did to them in Gujarat. Is it willful suicide, a thought-out plan or a desperate need for power?

      It may not be to the liking of the Sangh Parivar if all authority is concentrated in one man, and the others do not flourish. They may not flourish not only because the man in question does not let them flourish, but also because people see that they do not have any authority – so they don't go to them.

        LK Advani and MM Joshi type Modi opponent may be gradually marginalised. We have already seen how Modi's right-hand man, Amit Shah, has taken over the Uttar Pradesh unit of the party. Rajnath Singh could not even get tickets for some of his candidates. This is what I call de-insutionalization of the party.

          Narendra Modi could try to replicate Gujarat model of dictatorship in governance. I don't know how much this method can be replicated in Delhi, but I don't see Narendra Modi operating through the party – where some of his rivals are still influential.

            Narendra Modi’s efforts are very similar that to what Indira hi did to the Congress.Except that by the mid-'70s Indira hi had started to woo back to the party the Congress (O) leaders who were prepared to return. But for now it's a lot like 1971 when Indira hi won by relating directly to voters.

              Narendra Modi’s style of governance is dangerous for both, the Bharatiya Janata party and the Rashtreeya Swayan Sewak Sangh, Parivar. The organisation used to be above man, now they are depending upon one man.

                When Narendra Modi says vote for me, don't think about the local candidate too much. That is also what the slogan ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’ was saying. This is populism in the true sense of the word, and it implies de-insutionalisation of the party structure.

                  Why should peasants of Gujarat turn to the Bharatiya Kisan Sabha – the farmers' wing of the RSS – after it was sidelined by Narendra Modi? In Gujarat, some of the Sangh Parivar units have declined because of this modus opeum.

                    What is the possibility of Sri Modi or his family happily keeping this sari from Nawaz Sheriff for long time?I suggest Sri Modi's mother inform Mr. Sheriff that she will wear it only when he does certain things like:- Submit o India those persons who have done crime against India and are protected by Pak.- Do not incite Muslims to do jihadi in India or Kashmir.- Withdraw ISI network from India.etc.jai sri Krishna!skanda987@gmil
