‘Modi Insular, Distrustful, Rules with a Small Group of Advisors’

Whistle-blower Julian Assange-founded website Wikileaks, yesterday, in a series of tweets repudiated BJP’s campaign that showed Assange endorsing Modi as an ‘incorruptible’ leader. Here’s what they tweeted:

BJP, however, downplayed the WikiLeaks tweet.”We don’t need a certificate from Wikileaks or Assange on Modiji,” BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said. 

Later in the day, Wikileaks also named BJP’s Priti Gandhi for spreading the fake endorsement for Modi.

Here’s the fake endorsement tweet:

Wikileaks also released a cable involving Michael S. Owen,Consul General, Mumbai, meeting Modi in 2006, first since the March 2005 revocation of Modi’s U.S. visa because of his alleged role in the 2002 communal violence in Gujarat.

When asked about Gujarat government’s role in the communal violence of 2002, the cable claims that Modi was visibly annoyed and replied the following:

a. the events of 2002 were an internal Gujarati matter and the U.S. had no right to interfere;

b. the U.S. is itself guilty of horrific human rights violations (he specified Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and attacks on Sikhs in the U.S. after September 11) and thus has no moral basis to speak on such matters, and;

c. Muslims are demonstrably better off in Gujarat than in any other state in India, so what is everybody griping about?

The cable also talks about Owen’s meet with former Congress party MP and former Minister of Environment Yuraj Digvijay Sinhji.

Excerpts from the cable:

Asked whether Modi could become a national leader, Sinhji (himself the scion of the princely Wankaner family and a Cambridge grad) sniffed that Modi “lacks the polish and refinement” to become a national leader.

But Sinhji raised another reason why Modi could face challenges in becoming a national leader: Modi’s reputation for being completely incorruptible is accurate, and if he were to become a national leader he would crack down on corruption throughout the BJP. There are too many BJP rank and file waiting to line their pockets once the BJP returns to power, Sinhji said, and the prospect of Modi cracking the whip on corruption is entirely unappealing to this crowd. Modi would have a hard time clearing this hurdle, according to Sinhji.

In a seperate cable, Wikileaks had said that Owen saw Modi as “an insular, distrustful person who rules with a small group of advisors.” The cable talks about Owen’s views on Modi’s national ambition, administration capabilities, business and his ideology.

Excerpts from the cable:

Views remain divided on whether Modi’s leadership style will help or harm him if he enters national politics. In public appearances, Modi can be charming and likeable.

By all accounts, however, he is an insular,distrustful person who rules with a small group of advisors. This inner circle acts as a buffer between the Chief Minister and his cabinet and party. He reigns more by fear and intimidation than by inclusiveness and consensus, and is rude, condescending and often derogatory to even high level party officials. He hoards power and often leaves his ministers in the cold when making decisions that affect their portfolios. His abrasive leadership style alienated much of the state BJP leadership in 2005. He was able to quell their subsequent rebellion by branding them as corrupt opportunists who were angry because he denied them the tools of political patronage and corruption (ref C).

    Why Narendra Modi couldn’t have chosen the most backward constituency in the group of 543. There are several available in the states of UP, MP, Bihar, Orissa and Rajasthan. He could have told the electorate: Give me five years and I will make this the best developed and model constituency in the country. Perhaps, after his impending defeat in Varanasi, Arvind Kejriwal, the new messiah, will pick up this gauntlet?

      why at all he contest at two seats?. not sure of winning at Gujarat???????????????????///////

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    Well said Wikileaks, By all accounts, however, Narendra Modi is an insular,distrustful person who rules with a small group of advisors. This inner circle acts as a buffer between the Chief Minister and his cabinet and party. He reigns more by fear and intimidation than by inclusiveness and consensus, and is rude, condescending and often derogatory to even high level party officials.

    • kvmeera

      if there is a’ Modi wave’ as BJP and large sections of media hold, then why is Modi looking for a ‘safe’ seat’ in UP. Is not his 56 inch chest (his own words) not broad enough? Modi talking about Constitution when constitutional guarantee of security of life was violated in 2002, he is having chai pe charcha on agrarian crisis when he has given away land at nominal rates to big industry in Gujarat…. the mask…

      • Fakeriwal

        Why Maino did not choose Vatican, Kejriwal Islamabad, Mulayam Medina, Karat Beijing, Nitish kumar Kandhahar? Can you answer that?

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    Ramdev is, is of course, miffed with Narendra Modi and his BJP for denying tickets to his nominees, some of them highly questionable characters! While the Modi typhoon is bound to sweep away a Nitin Gadkari here or a Sushma Swaraj (she has tweeted about her opposition to the re-entry into the BJP of BS Sriramulu, a close aide of the jailed mining baron Janardhan Reddy) there, this public posturing and dissent strikes a discordant note.

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s history suggests that he could have been more mature in dealing with his seniors and mentors like Advani and, before that, Keshubhai Patel. Joshi’s plight—at least from what has transpired so far—shows that not much has changed. But not all is lost.

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    While the Narendra Modi juggernaut rolls on and the general perception, confirmed by almost all election surveys, is that the NDA is set to unseat the UPA, unfortunately the single factor that can trip him is his own party. At first the former BJP chief Nitin Gadkari — there is no love lost between him and Modi — took the strange step of seeking Raj Thackeray’s support in Mumbai when the BJP is in alliance with Raj’s bête noire Uddhav Thackeray and the Shiv Sena.

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    The choice of Varanasi wouldn’t have raised eyebrows for a Modi who spoke incessantly about ‘Mian’ Musharraf or called an earlier chief election commissioner by his full Christian name — James Michael Lyngdoh. But the Modi we see today, and who is slowly drawing a section of Muslims and Christians to his side, speaks only the language of development. A language which says that clean, firm and effective governance will make India prosperous and improve the living conditions, employment opportunities, and so on of all Indians. After this, why Varanasi?

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    Narendra Modi’s candidature from Varanasi sends out the opposite signal. He may not raise passions on the Hindutva plank but his contesting from the abode of Lord Shiva and the city where the ghats of the Ganga are considered sacred by millions of Hindus, has a clear subtext.

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    Varanasi was not enough to galvanise the media and trigger countrywide debates on what his victory margin will be, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal has threatened to take on Modi from there. Alas, the combative Kejriwal will find that Modi is no Sheila Diskhit, Vqaranasi is not Delhi, and that too at the end of a three-term stint as Delhi chief minister. With the two principal candidates having their love-hate relationship with the media, political enthusiasts and aficionados can look forward to a media frenzy and a barrage of stories and telecasts from this holy city.

  • Chaitanya Iyer

    Political compulsions in making way for the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to contest from Varanasi, gently pushing out of the has-been leader Murli Manohar Joshi. Internal surveys by the BJP had shown that while in western UP the party was bound to do well (aided of course by the horrendous and lethargic response of Mulayam Singh’s Samajwadi Party to the communal flare-up in Muzaffarnagar), in the rather backward Poorvanchal that comprises eastern UP and adjoining parts of Bihar, the saffron flag was not flying high.

    WAKE UP NaMoOONAS!
    On 19 Feb 2014, the H’ble Supreme court threw away a petition by Loha Chor Yeddy seeking to stay the court trail against him in the illegal iron ore mining scam. Apparently Yeddy, the khakhi chaddi buddy of NaMo has been promised Koyla Mantri if he manages to get 19 seats from Karnataka. Just a few months ago the Karnataka Lokayukta caught him pants down exporting illegal iron ore to Karachi.

    The Congress is neck-deep in scams and cannot be trusted to bring about any development whatsoever. The AAP is an anarchist party,with no development agenda. It will only be like a bull in a china shop. It is BJP alone with NaMo as its PM candidate who has a vision for this country.He is honest and hard-working. He never discriminates on the basis of religion, like the so-called secularists. Therefore, his enemies are the enemies of India, because they do not want a united, peaceful and developed India. They are trying to divide the society by spreading falsehood and hatred.

    • El Calvin

      Modi is just a mass murderer , who should be in jail.

  • BMM

    No amount of praising Modi would work out for BJP. Advani would have been a better Candidate. Jai Advaniji.

  • Fakeriwal

    Assange has been threatened by the Vatican and Bible belt beasts not to reveal the secrets about Maino’s stash. No doubt he would have been again threatened. of all the people in India he has to share his secrets with a left loonie lumpen called N. Ram who is also the press Advisor of Catholic Bishop Council of India after he married a Catholic to become one. Shame on you Assange

    • El Calvin

      Lol , People like u just don’t deserve brain , such a waste of matter

      • Proud Indian

        Before you ause others of denying anything put agains Modi … just look at yourself in a mirror. You are already degrading your language as been attacked and showing your lack of knowledge by denying the facts stated above. Yes, it would have been a waste of grey matter … had you had any.

  • Rama Mohana Rao Kodali

    People are frustrated with the level of corruption, lethargy and inaction and indifference to peoples needs.And even the electorate is corrupted through irrational freebies at the time of elections. They are looking towards a leader with Sardar Patel’s orientation.

  • krishnan

    What is the credibility of the report of a US diplomat. It only means Modi is not reliable for US. US wants rulers of other countries to be its cronies. Whoever is likely to have an independent view will be demonised.

    • El Calvin

      Basically u are ready to deny anything which is put against Modi .
      I am indian and i can also clearly say that modi is just power hungry scum who is manipulating media to gain india’s favor .
      BJP is not even ready to remove corrupt from there party who have strong charges against them in courts . (as seen in yesterday’s ABP news with AMir )

  • Mondrahul

    Such a straight forward thing to know…yet the Feku bhakt are twisting and turning the truth……………..such a pathetic bunch of loosers and desperado’s……
