Gujarat Elections: Nothing to be proud of

We like it or not – at least I don’t – but Modi’s victory was inevitable and no matter how much Sonia fumes, the fact remains indelibly etched in the history of Indian politics. There can be endless debates on whether Congress made a mistake by staking an estimated 450 crore in Gujarat election campaign or not, but there can be no denying that Gujarat elections has to go the way they did. I don’t think Indian secularism is on weak knees, but something is certainly not right. Some time back I wrote a little piece on Tehelka and Modi (Modi And Tehelka – Democracy, Secularism? Excuse Me). I can only say it is not one of those times when we would be proud of Indian democracy.
