Narendra Modi is public leader by his own identity and political activity. Like other leaders, he is also committed to serve the country through public mandate. He is a tested leader with party ideology not only in his home state,in national politics too. Mr. Modi has all the potentialities in leading and heading the federal government based on majority mandate through democratic and constitutional due process. The opponents may have some reservations to his leadership in the past. But that does not matter to his public acceptability. If public wants and endorses him with gross majority as the next Prime Minister, nobody or no party can resist him in getting the due position that he deserves. Mr. Modi understands his path to rise is not free from thorns, and his party is also not free from Bibhisons, yet he is hopeful, and respectful to the public good wishes. History witnessed that what mentors could not do, disciples are quite capable to do that.

LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM, YOU CANNOT CHOOSE TO IGNORE MODI.
RHETORICS APART, IF MODI CANT PULL A RABBIT OUT OF THE HAT FOR BJP IN
2014, I FEEL NO ONE CAN.HE IS THE BEST BET IF BJP HAS TO CAPITALISE ON
THE WAVE AGAINST CONGRESS IN 2014.HOWEVER, I FEEL THAT THE BIGGEST
ENEMY OF MODI IS MODI HIMSELF.HE HAS A NON-COMPROMISING AND ADAMANT
ATTITUDE ON MANY ISSUES . ALSO HE IS NOT USED TO COALITION POLITICS
AND BELIEVES IN ONE MAN SHOW AS HAS BEEN THE CASE IN GUJARAT.I
SINCERELY DOUBT WHETHER HE CAN FORGE ALLIANCES AND TAKE OTHER ALLIES
WITH HIM.BUT GIVEN HIS RECORD OF DEALING WITH POTENTIAL COMPETITORS,IT
REMAINS ANYONE'S GUESS HOW HE WILL MARCH FORWARD.THE MODI DRAMA WILL
UNFOLD AND IT WILL REALLY BE QUITE INTERESTING TO SEE THE LOK SABHA
POLLS OF 2014.HOWEVER, MODI IS AN ASTUTE POLITICIAN AND WILL
DEFINITELY HAVE A METICULOUS PLAN OF ACTION.BUT I WOULD DEFINITELY
LIKE TO GIVE HIM A CHANCE AND SEE HOW HE GOVERNS AT THE NATIONAL
LEVEL.LETS SEE HOW THINGS UNFOLD.

Modi is liked by most of the gujarathi people. His position as chief minister cannot be shaken. He will do well in gaining popularity and votes for BJP. Whether he will become next prime minister or not, nobody can predict. But one day he will certainly become prime minister.
