New Delhi: It was one of those rare occasions when parivar-chief and the party-chief shared the dais. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and BJP president Amit Shah came on stage in New Delhi on Wednesday to release a book on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — 'The Making of a Legend'.
As is the practice in Sangh Parivar — or an unwritten code — party president spoke first. The right to have the last word is reserved for the Sarsanghchalak.
For someone so closely associated with PM Modi, Amit Shah vividly spoke of a journey which started as an RSS pracharak; of the responsibilities Modi took thereafter, once deputed to the BJP.
"Party sent him to Gujarat as state CM even though he had not contested even panchayat elections," Shah reminisced. And then he went on to describe in detail the achievements of CM Modi, especially in employment creation, irrigation and creation a conducive environment to attract private investments.
There was despair and decay before the 2014 general elections, he said. Youth were out on the streets, women felt insecure and investors' sentiment had touched a rock bottom.
The mandate of 2014 can't be achieved by an election campaign alone, it can't be achieved by a party, Shah said. "Ye jo prachand janadhesh mila wo 125 crore logon ke man ka ashirvaad hai," he concluded.
It was now Mohan Bhagwat's turn to make the valedictory remarks. And the RSS chief took the cue from where the Amit Shah had left.
Bhagwat spoke of two journeys: one of Narendra Modi as RSS pracharak. And the other as CM of Gujarat and Prime Minister of India.
That journey before Modi took center stage in politics still holds great importance to the swayamsewaks and workers as we know the importance of that journey, Bhagwat averred.
"His tenure as CM and PM became so bright only because of his journey as a pracharak," Bhagwat added with a touch of finality to his submission.
