Dr. Swamy on the premiership of Modi

New Delhi, 07 April, (

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramaniam Swamy said here on Saturday that the country had accepted, whether one likes it or not, that Narendra Modi would be India’s next Prime Minister.

He cited an English magazine as expressing the opinion that the people of India had decided to make Mr. Modi the next Prime Minister but in the magazine’s opinion, Mr. Modi should not be the Prime Minister.

“Why this reluctance?” Dr. Swamy asked and answered the question by claiming that the arrival of Mr. Modi as Prime Minister would make India intellectually free of the West. Dependence on foreign ideologies, including India’s dependence on the Soviet model of development, had proved disastrous for the country, he said at a function organised in Tripunithura.

In the meantime, Dr. Swamy took strong exception to an editorial by ‘The Economist’ magazine against Narendra Modi and asked “How does a foreign magazine decide upon our internal affairs?”

Furthermore, Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday formed a “Strategic Action Committee for 2014 Lok Sabha Election” with Subramanian Swamy as chairperson.

The new committee, which has been appointed by party president Rajnath Singh, has R .S. Goswami as secretary and journalist M.J. Akbar, former RAW chief Sanjeev Tripathi and Lt. Gen. Surendra Pratap Tanwar as members.

“The Committee comprises eminent names, these people are not just experts in their own fields, but can contribute by giving valuable inputs to party on a variety of issues that are linked to elections. They will join forces with the party to help with the mission 272+,” said a senior BJP functionary.
