Hopefully he’s changed since 2002.
His support has become stronger it seems, and that’s probably because Hindus see him as an opponent of Muslim terrorism.
The Special Investigation, directly monitored by the Supreme Court has found that he asked for the Army assistance within 6-8 hours after the burning of the train in Godhra and till then deployed the Police with "Shoot" orders to control mobs. Police bullets felled about 170 rioters in the first 2 days. And remember, only about 5% of the cops are armed. The rest only have a bamboo stick. This is something that the media, paid off by the Congress Party, will never report.
Modi wins on development, utter lack of personal corruption, swift decision making and his agricultural growth record. Not on any anti-Muslim sentiments as the MSM would have you believe.
And if the rest of the Country does not want him as PM, we in Gujarat will be absolutely delighted to keep him here.
Foreign diplomats have flocked to Gujarat not only for economic reasons, but also because the SIT report has exonerated him. Of course, the Japanese, Chinese and the Singaporeans had distrusted the NGOs and realised the truth long before the SIT report.
