Exclusive: Will Narendra Modi make hat-trick in Gujarat?

The results of Gujarat Assembly poll will create a new power equation in the BJP. If Chief Minister Narendra Modi makes hat-trick by winning assembly poll to be held on December 13 and 17, the BJP’s poster boy will project himself as the strong contender for the post of Prime Minister in the 2014 general election. Let see, if Narendra Modi is going to make hat-trick or not.

Surveys conducted on Gujarat Assembly Poll 2012

The India Today-ORG poll gave Modi an even bigger majority in 2012 than in 2007, projecting a seat count of 128 (against 117 in 2007) on a lower vote share (47 percent vs 49 percent earlier).

The CNN-IBN pre-poll opinion survey gives Modi a clear 50 percent of the vote, one percent higher than what he achieved in 2007, while the Congress saw a drop of 2 percent. The gainer is Keshubhai Patel’s Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP), which gains 3 percent.

Muslim Factor for Modi

The survey shows Muslim dislike for Modi is reducing in intensity compared to 2009, with the number of people who said they never liked him going down from 44 percent to 23 percent. The likes have gone up from 14 percent to 26 percent. These kinds of numbers indicate that Muslim wariness about Modi is down to the normal level of wariness they have towards the BJP as a party. It may no longer be the extreme antipathy they were reporting with Modi earlier.

Nothing can prevent Modi’s hat-trick in Gujarat- Thackeray

Shiv sena chief Late Bal Thackeray had said Gujarat chief minister would lead his party to a third consecutive victory in the December Assembly elections. “Modi has shown his grip on Gujarat and is going to win the polls for the third time in a row.”

“This is because of the pace of development in Gujarat in last 10 years under Modi’s leadership. It won’t be easy for anyone to stop the victory march of Modi,” he said.

“A picture is painted on TV channels that Modi is some sort of demon and that he is going to gobble up all Muslims in the country,” Thackeray said.

Modi is far ahead of anyone else in Gujarat. There is literally no competition, because in addition to the urban areas he dominates the dalit, adivasi’s and OBCs. Which makes it clear he has delivered what he promised – Inclusive growth.

Gujrat election is not a challenge anymore for modi. The real challenge now is to replicate his success formula at the national level.

  • Pradip Khimani

Modi led BJP will get a giant victory in Gujarat state as congress does not have a leader like Modi at national level too.

  • Amit Verma

No one can stop Modi to be India’s next PM. Indians love him and he is the one who can lead this country as no one did. He is the leader with utmost leadership qualities. Don’t want to see these rotten faces of UPA again, They look corrupt by their faces. In the last 8 years they have developed a thinking that they are dictator of this country, They do what they want to do. CBI has became their puppet, they use it who raises voice against them. But time is very brave and thus it has presented Modi as a rival. Kick these foreigners out of our own India and send them back where they belong to. Way to go!! We are with you.

  • Madan Meena

Indeed Modiji is gonna win in Gujrat elections and we will all like to see a very able leader operating from Delhi very soon. India needs a powerful leader to lead this country with his focus on development for all, appeasement for none.
