Prime Minister in the offing?

To some, Yogi Adityanath, the single most divisive, abusive, polarising figure in UP politics, is both hero and saint; to others, the choice of the Yogi, the 44-year-old shaven-headed, saffron-clad servant of the Lord Shiva, who has been elected five times in a row to parliament and elevated to the highest political office in Uttar Pradesh, a state of 220 million people, seems ominous.

“Beware of an old man in a hurry.” People in our country in general and the leaders of the ruling BJP in particular, would be wise enough to keep this English maxim in mind. The 66-year-old Prime Minister Narendra Modi, not so old as far as politics is concerned, seems to be went into overdrive to portray himself as the ‘supreme leader’, just within two-and-a-half-years of coming into power.
