Modi should imagine why world evaluates him in poor light: Soz

Srinagar, May 26: Former Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Saifudin Soz Sunday said that Narendra Modi’s ascendency as Prime Minister should not be grudged, but Modi should imagine why the world sees him in poor light.
In a statement, Soz said, “Nobody can grudge Narendera Modi’s ascendency as PM of India for the second time as this position came to him through a democratic process.”
He said the fact, however, remains that the Electoral Process remained flawed primarily because the Election Commission of India remained biased in favour of the ruling class!
“PM Modi could in his own interest consider why the entire Democratic world measured India’s electoral space during the general elections 2019, as a deeply polarized process such as never seen in Independent India. Needless to mention it here that prestigious TIME magazine had described Modi as ‘India’s Divider in Chief’ and the Guardian (London) has run down Modi, among other things, for treating the minorities as ‘Second Class Citizens’!,” he said.
Former PCC president said many a constitutional experts throughout the world felt that India got deeply polarized for the first time in its long electoral process.
He said PM Modi should imagine why the entire world evaluates him in poor light.
“Then, citizens like me raise a potential question as to why PM Modi never uttered a word on the atmosphere of deep intolerance that got created during his first term as Prime Minister of India and he never uttered a word on scores of crimes of lynching and roadside killings of poor of the poorest members of a chosen minority community!,” Soz added.
Soz said alas, PM Modi’s second term also started with the lynching of a couple from a poor family of Madhya Pradesh and this time too, PM Modi has no word of remorse!
“This is a highly tragic situation for modern day India where goons called ‘cow-vigilantes’ commit these crimes without facing ‘Law of the Land’,” he said. (KNS)
