Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Sunday in Thiruvananthapuram that Rahul Gandhi's decision to contest from Wayanad shows he has the confidence to win from both north and south India.
But Modi does not seem to have the courage or confidence of seeking mandate from either Kerala or Tamil Nadu. Tharoor slammed Modi and the BJP for suggesting that Gandhi chose Wayanad to run away from majority-dominated areas, saying the ruling party has repeatedly resorted to peddling bigotry.
It was dismaying that this was coming from the Prime Minister. Rahul Gandhi's decision to contest from Wayanad comes at a time of unprecedented strain on the spirit of cooperative federalism that has held the country together for long.
It is to be lamented that during his rule, Modi, by reinforcing his role as a torchbearer for the BJP's bigotry, has disregarded the position he must be a prime minister for all Indians.
So, when the option of two PM probables are available, surely Rahul Gandhi stands to be elected considering the real prime ministerial qualities that assemble in him for the best of the country.
