Modi came to power promising to eradicate black money and corruption by putting end to a system where the ruling elites and their cronies pocketed all the wealth while people struggled for survival. With only months to go for his term, whether it was the first only posterity will tell, he has become very much part of the system he was promising to fight. Today he is steeped in all the vices that he had accused the dynastic Congress of monopolising.

The BJP has been rejected by the people of the Hindi heartland which has been the party’s bastion since its inception. In Chhattisgarh the Congress has inflicted a huge defeat on it and in Rajasthan also it has been decisively rejected. The State Assembly elections in five States have proved the innate strength of the democratic polity founded and reared by Jawaharlal Nehru. It has been conclusively proved that Indian democracy can withstand a relentless attack on its foundations for full four and a half years – and still survive and prove indestructible.
