By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore : To me once Modiji became prime minister of India he should stop electioneering and he should Act full time as Prime Minister and not as BJP leader .To me once an MP become Prime Minister of India after his election he severs his umbilical cord with his party and become administrative head of Union Government. Modi failed to deliver 'Achhe din” to all Indian Citizens and take off with 282 BJP MPs or 336 NDA MPs in about 9 months from the day election results were announced and he became Prime Minister of India. 'Achhe din” are forcibly being bestowed to industrialist lobby by changing land acquisition Act and others through ordinance route .Modi should priorities 'Achhe din” to common man first . Union Government is different and parliament functions are different and Party politics is different. Prime Minister of India is public servant and he has to function under the constitution of India and secretarial manual .All PMs once elected are MPs for all their constituency and not who voted for them .The country has a stable mandate after a long time, BJP must not blow it election of states and union territories .Let me forewarn and caution all parties: this is not going to be pretty politics once the government is formed .After the Delhi wipe out and loss, there are plenty of articles on what BJP did wrong or what the prime Minister did wrong . While that has been well understood, it is important to note what it will take now to get out of this mess in short term and long term. BJP should prepare a list of 282 or 336 or 543 action points (each one for MP constituency) if BJP wants to remain the dominant political party in India. After a long time, India had a stable mandate at the top and BJP should not under estimate it. .If BJP blows this opportunity it will set India back by a decade. So, here goes .Realise the Delhi election loss was a pure, unmitigated disaster. It has ended the halo around Modi, or the Modi wave. It has also shown the top leadership has no clue about the feelings of people on the street or their own party workers. It also casts doubt on Modi's actual execution ability. To me once he became prime minister of India he should stop electioneering and he should Act full time as Prime Minister and not as BJP leader .To me once an MP become Prime Minister of India after his election he severs his umbilical cord with his party and become administrative head of Union Government. Union Government is different and parliament functions are different and Party politics is different.Transform India first and India first and Do not sanction billion dollar loan for Adani by SBI to manufacture coal in Australia. First make India manufacture and then think of other countriesThe PM, with all due respect, is floating too high as per several press reports. He needs to come back to earth .BJP should stop ballooning Modiji .Let BJP stop presenting an image of a global statesman. Reportedly Modi have won an anti-incumbency election when reportedly Congress was weak, by increasing BJP's vote share by a few percentage points. BJP Don't just get claps from NRIs. If they love modi so much, ask them to pay . If one lakh NRIs commit to paying BJP $1,000 a year, that is a hundred million dollars of clean money annually. Use that to clean up BJP's funding. When are BJP is going to do that anyway? Get the Lokpal to the nation . Have a good, independent CBI and CVC office. Clean up corruption systemically . Don't say if Modi is there, nobody can be corrupt.What if Modi isn't there tomorrow?.Don't bully the media or juniors in the party . Inspire respect, not fear and give respect and take respect .Don't be dictator and be moderator . Don't kill talent in the party and country because it could be a threat to you one day . It's not in BJP's DNA to be a one-man party ..Shut up regressive Hindutva fanat ics. They talk. You ignore. They are your supporters. You have to tell them loud and clear this is not OK.The young generation doesn't find it cool to support a leader who doesn't believe in a free and equal society. Modiji should stop proxy statements of few hate mongers who are given free paasage in party and government.Send some of your old-fashioned partymen Universities in India to learn about gender issues and minority rights and constitution and civil and criminal law . Then they will stop issuing wrong statements otherwise send them behind bars under various section of IPC.They will make you and BJP and NDA sink otherwise.
Recently one writer reportedly has advised modi "Don't be overconfident in your speeches. Keep a circle of critics around you, not just those who keep singing `Modiji is awesome'. Everything you utter in public must be pre-checked. If you did that, the Naxal and Bazaru comments would have been edited out. A PM cannot be a rabble rouser.Dress down. Charisma comes from integrity , competence and compassion.Not from expensive clothes.Stay connected to and do something visible for the youth. They screamed for you in the Lok Sabha election, filled their twitter and FB walls in your praise.What have you done for them? You went to SRCC to give a speech before election.Have you visited any college after that?Why not? Is Fiji more important (sorry again Fiji)?.The party president may be really clever. But sometimes it isn't about who is most clever but who genuinely cares. Chess moves don't win elections all the time. A connect with people does. The party president, given his perceived persona (which may be at variance with who he really is), doesn't inspire confidence. You standing next to him is Amitabh Bachchan standing next to Amar Singh. Did it help Mr Bachchan?Don't talk down to people. Talk to people. Don't address people if you never want to take questions. Don't give monologues on radio. It reminds one of Indira Gandhi and North Korea. It's not cool. Do you really think a kid in Delhi University will tell his friends, hey , can't miss that Mann Ki Baat on radio?Open more colleges. Open up tourism.Reduce taxes on high employment sectors. Give tax breaks for companies that move headquarters to smaller cities. Do anything to take skills and jobs to the interiors. Fix the primary schools. They have to teach well. Half our school kids can't read properly .The cities need extensions with very low cost housing solutions, with good water, electricity and transport infrastructure. That is the only way the urban poor can live a life with dignity . Give them dignity . They didn't vote for you in Delhi, remember? Win them back.Be real. Have work life balance. Why can't the PM catch a movie sometimes?Or eat chaat in Delhi somewhere? A humanised PM works better than a glorified PM.No statues, please. School or statue?Hospital or statue? No need to explain further.No personal attacks on opponents no matter how punchy the joke or the temptation to say it. Again, run it past those critical advisers first.No hanging out with rich industrialists. Of course, you may need to officially. But that doesn't have to be a media event. Hang out with the billion people, not billionaires.Ultimately , all of the above comes down to the party listening and acting according to the wishes of the people. "
