Country has gone through different phases once it came to electing it’s Prime Minister.
We, in our growing years had heard of Pt Jawarhlal Nehru as a Prime Minister who had mass appeal.
Shri Gulzari Lal Nanda took over after sudden demise of Panditji.
Subsequently, popularly elected Prime Ministers have ruled the country.
Then, came a phase, when the Indian Prime Minister had to be a compromise candidate...be it Mr Gowda,Mr Gujral.Mr V. P. Singh,or Dr Manmohan Singh.
There have been different voices in various circles about the office of the PM losing its colour and authority.We,the common men may or may not agree with it.
Now, hold your breath. If all that was not enough, one TV channel has a competitive question...GUESS YOUR NEXT PRIME MINISTER...AND WIN A CAR(t&c apply).
In a democracy can there be anything more disturbing than this?
Have come to a stage where we have to guess the name of our prospective PM by SMS or on-line?
I stood in silence for 2 mnts.
Would you too?
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW
