BJP’s Prime Ministerial Candidate Modi “kills” BJP’s Founding Father Shyama Prasad Mukherjee in 1930

The Prime Ministerial candidate of BJP, Narendra Modi, exhibited his stupendous knowledge of history once again while speaking in the inauguration of a Hospital in Balasinor, Gujarat on 10th November, 2013. He vociferously blamed Congress for not bringing the asthi of the freedom fighter Shyama Prasad Mukherjee who Modi claimed had died in Geneva in 1930!

He informed the audience that Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, a great son of Gujarat had built India house in London. He also claimed that Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was in regular dialogue with Vivekananda and Dayanand Saraswati etc etc. Mukherjee was born in 1901 whereas Vivekananda died in 1902. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee must indeed be a great scholar to engage in a dialogue with Vivekanda at the age of just one year. Finally, as is his penchant to take credits, Modi said it was his good fortune to be able to bring back the ashthi (ashes) of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee from Geneva in 2003!

Imagine the next potential Prime Minister of our country totally ignorant about the founder of his own parent organisation Bharatiya Jan Sangh Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee who had died in Kashmir in 1953! Modi “kills” him in Geneva in 1930 and reduces Mukherjee to ashes much before Jan Sangh was born. The most ludicrous aspect of Modi’s declaration was that he was in fact criticizing Manmohan Singh’s speech in Chhattisgarh and blaming Congress for distorting history and geography!

To correct the history – It was Shyamji Krishna Varma from Kutchh Mandvi, Gujarat, who had gone to London and with some in 1902 developed the India house which became the living space for many Indian freedom fighters. Shyamji had died in Geneva in 1930 and his ashes were handed over to Modi in 2003. But to invoke this incident incorrectly in Balsinor, Gujarat, is indeed hilarious.

Many would say that we are nit-picking on Modi for such bloopers. But how long can such illiteracy be permitted to be exposed to the world? Very recently, Modi in Patna went on to bring Alexander to Bihar and got him defeated by Biharis though Alexander never cross the Ganges. He also put Taxila in Bihar though it is in Pakistan. Imagine what his last declaration could have done if he was actually the Prime Minister. A war would have broken out between India and Pakistan for taking away Taxila from Pakistan!

In the same meeting at Balasinor, Modi made many more bloopers but one more instance would suffice. He blamed the Congress for awarding the Bharat Ratna to Vallabhbhai Patel after it was awarded to Rajiv Gandhi. This is not true. Both Rajiv and Sardar had been conferred with the Bharat Ratna in 1991. Both were conferred posthumously.

Why doesn’t Modi make a grievance that no Government till date has conferred Bharat Ratna to Mahatma Gandhi, the tallest freedom fighter Gujarat has given birth to? If Modi can remember Sardar Patel, why does he forget Gandhiji?

You people such a cheap people waiting for something to go do not have spine to discuss on all the other things which the nation is facing and you so called qualified pseudos discussing only those things by twisting the facts… You do nat have to give full information and then criticize but providing partial info…What about your comment on ISI remark and Bangalore as a state?

It is really shame for congress and other people!!!.. They as do not have much to speak against him they are just picking slip of tongue of others.Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was just misquoted in place of Shyamaji Krishna Varma…It is also an opportunity to let the people of India know another great Patriot of India who wanted his ASTHI to be taken in Free India.. Lets salut Shyamaji Krishna Varma.. If he could see the freedom..

Why can’t people get a simple logic? The UPA with all its flaws, corruption, scams etc. is still better than NDA. If congress could not control inflation, it certainly does not mean that BJP could have done a better job. In all probabilities, they would have fared worse.

Do we expect an uneducated feku chaiwala to do a better job than a highly educated Dr. Manmohan Singh who has degrees in economics from Oxford and Cambridge universities?

The current government is the best government. We must accept this fact rather than routing for an alternative government headed by some mindless bluffmaster.

It seems that Saffronites have fallen in trap of UPA by selecting Mr. Modi as prime ministerial candidate. Otherwise they had better options with them.

Jairaj Menon
Though it may seem that Modi has made an impression even among some sections of the rural population as Mr.Mohammad Ghazali Khan suggests but there is a perceptible drop of the Modi curve. In some mainstream newspapers he has slipped to the inside pages, he appears on the front pages only for his bloopers! His speeches are very negative and aggressive in nature apart from being factually incorrect on many counts, such speeches have a shock affect which can be effective if elections are round the corner but the effect does not last when the elections are still some 7… Read more »

it appears to be a leader we deserve. in a rough estimate about 35-40 % of gujus (including those who are from other states but resident here) endorse his and his party line ideology. this percentage is enough in india to win a election and run the government (more than often it means please the powerful and middle class).

It looks like that they don’t have better options. Although there are men like Advani, who can read and write, or women like Sushma Swaraj, who can speak, the chose the semi literate! The reason is: He can teach a better lesson to the minorities.

Is BJP/RSS such a ridiculous discredited party/organization to have found only a illiterate JOKER like Modi as PM junk material to shame the civilized cultured India before the world Nations.? !!!


My Dear Mr. Mukul Sinhaji

Why you are wasting your time and energy on NaMo, BJP Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014? How he can remember all the history with out his advisors?

Please search Google “DR Goyal RSS” His interview is published in on look.

You will know real history of RSS and particularly about Mr. L.K.Advani his journey from Karachi in 1947. Why you are forgetting that LKA is the guru of NaMo from 1990 till 2013?
