The country will be at a loss if Modi does not choose to rise above ideological differences
The last general elections broke all caste barriers and people overwhelmingly voted for Narendra Modi and his candidates. There were two remarkable things, among others, that Modi said in his victory speech that struck me. First, he pointed out that only two “castes" will remain in the country, the poor and those contributing to alleviating poverty. While national security played a key part of the winning narrative, economic security and freedoms must be the new mantra of the government in office.
