While it appeared initially that Patidars' anger could harm BJP, it was Modi who changed the atmosphere in the final lap of campaigning.
Congress leaders like Anand Sharma have been posing questions based on rumours, and one should be aware about the sources trying to create unnecessary panic among bank depositors.
Modi always thinks originally, has innovative ideas and implements them suddenly. When denied a roadshow, the Prime Minister opted for an airshow to the delight of his fans and supporters.
One expects experienced administrators like Dr Singh and Hamid Ansari to avoid getting caught in such a trap, and if they do, they should admit the same.
Right from the time when Sonia Gandhi used the phrase 'maut ke saudagar' to the 'khoon ki dalali' remark by Rahul Gandhi, Modi read out names of almost all senior Congress leaders who had hurled abuses at him.
The Congress leadership did the right thing in first asking Aiyar to apologize, and later suspending him from the primary membership of the party.
The question now is under whose pressure did Kapil Sibal tell the Supreme Court that he wanted the hearing to be deferred till 2019?
Kapil Sibal's request in SC comes on the eve of polling in Gujarat, where the party is trying to prove Rahul's identity as a devout "janeu" wearing Hindu and a devotee of Lord Shiva.
Mani Shanker Aiyar has this knack of making a funny remark at the wrong time. He sought to compare Rahul's ascension with Aurangzeb.
