Ranchi: Jharkhand’s opposition parties on Saturday mocked Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s comment that the state was developing and said the remark was made keeping in mind the upcoming Bihar assembly polls.

Modi, while launching the Pradhan Mantri MUDRA (Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency) programme in Jharkhand’s Dumka city and also addressing a rally in Bihar’s Banka district on Friday, said:

“Jharkhand is developing after the BJP government was formed.”

Modi is master of branding. He is branding Jharkhand to win Bihar poll. Modi should spell out single achievement of Raghubar Das in any field like road, power and health sector which has helped the people of the state,” Alok Dubey, Jharkhand Congress general secretary, said.

Dubey said: “In the last nine months, the power situation has worsened. The state capital Ranchi witnesses 10 to 12 hours of power cuts. A power cut also happened a few days ago when the chief minister held a meeting in the secretariat to discuss the power scenario in the state.”

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) also questioned the prime minister’s remark. “Modi is master of packaging and branding stale things. Modi should look into Ranchi-Jamshedpur national highway which has turned into a death trap,” Kunal Sarangi, JMM legislator from Bahragora, said.

“The prime minister should also look into the Bahargora National Highway 33, connecting Jharkhand to Odisha and West Bengal. This highway witnessed traffic dislocation for a record 220 hours last month.”

Sarangi said: “We want to know from the prime minister about the parameters on the basis of which Jharkhand stood third in World Bank ratings for the most investor-friendly state.”

“Reliance withdrew from Hazaribagh’s 4,000 megawatt power plant. Not a single industry is established. Where are the facts and figures that prove the claim that Jharkhand is developing. It is still working on the 2014-15 policy of providing drinking water and repairing tubewells. More than half of the state is facing drought and the state government is doing nothing to help the farmers.”

A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor.

Many will not disagree that the PM Modi is fairly unpopular among a certain popular elite within the country. However, he has earned an immeasurable number of admirers outside the country. The fact why he is an eyesore for certain groups of people and celebrities while they are bowled over and ever supportive of specific dull-witted and inexperienced leaders is something very weird and contrasting. This phenomenon defies the long-held assumption that “education” makes one rational and free from the psychological shortfall. Nevertheless, PM Modi is least bothered what his smart detractors think and do against him.  He hardly wishes evil upon anyone. He has multiple of reasons to stay buoyed and cheery. The flood of praises coming from outside the country has always swelled PM Modi’s chest. Therefore, even in the foreign soil he goes, without a hitch, shouting at full throttle —‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.  

Truly, it’s totally wrong to ignore many achievements associated with PM Modi. Yes, he has been chosen to be honored with the highest civilian award – Order of Zayed by the UAE government.  Not just that, the countries like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Palestine also have come forward to honor the Indian PM with their respective highest awards. A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor. His unfaltering dedication and devotion to execute formulated policies and planes have yielded positive results, though some section of powerful people try to undermine and demean them all.

Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly.

What is most attractive in PM Modi is that he is smartly clever to strike the personal kinship with any individual foreign leaders and diplomats. Yes, due to his personal touch and warmth, the Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly. Of course, this is doubtlessly praiseworthy. Yes, good truths should be not suppressed and falsehood should not be exaggerated.

However, a very strange vibe is noticed in the country. It is nothing but an unenthusiastic silence maintained by the popular media when Modi receives some accolades and appreciation. Many choose not to mention it at all, not even as news-item. This all makes everything all the more conspicuous. Well, this, in fact, only prompts the swarm of netizens to be more active in social media, their battlefields. They are seen furiously vocal. The ranting, raving, and name-calling against the backdrop of the importance given to a certain class of leaders make the situation less pleasant and logical. Not just that people in the social media are quick to throw up contrasting examples citing how media goes gaga over a “less intelligent lot” while keeping deafening silence over things that bring glory and fame to the nation. This is doubtlessly a bizarre development. This way the detractors or opponents always run the risk of losing their own integrity.

A business done by sacrificing integrity ends up in disaster. Opposition to ideas and political parties is always welcome, which is democratic, but the biased attitude against the “truth” and positivity can only dilute the sanctity of the enterprise and professionalism. As concerned citizens, should we not first want that the light of glory and joy dispel the gloom of darkness and despair in the country? Let’s not waste our precious life by struggling to call the untruth as truth and vice versa. This exercise only contributes to polluting our mindset and the country becomes less peaceful and more vulnerable.
