In today's Hindustan Times there is an article on P14 by Karan Thapar titled Neither Modi Nor Rahul Should Be PM. The article says that both these gentlemen Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi don't deserve to be the Prime Monister of India. And the basis for both rejections is just one incidence each. Narendra Modi is being rejected because he reacted hurriedly to the Pakistani journalist's tweet remarking Indian Prime Minister as Village Woman. Rajiv Gandhi has been rejected on the basis of his outburst on Prime Minister regarding Ordinance Bill.
Mr Karan Thapar, I have been watching your programs since my childhood and really admired the way you used to interview politicians with crunching and grinding teeth and fully blown nostrils. These styles
used to fulfill the requirement of comedy shows those days that were not there. Now tell me how just on these just two silly mistakes made by the two gentlemen one each, how justified is it to reject them for the prime ministerial candidature. What it means that if any of the politician or even a non politician scores good marks in your one activity task by not getting prompted by a tweet without verifying it or blasting openly on any of the Ordinance Bills being undertaken by Manmohan Singh, he or she will become eligible to be the next Prime Minister of India?
One more thing comes into my mind that we can carry out this assessment now onward on daily basis. Everyday we assess Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi on their previous day's activities and declare if they are eligible to be the Prime Minister on the basis of that day's score. And the cumulative score will decide their candidature at the end.
We will name this assessment as KTA - Karan Thapar Assessment. Wondering what will happen if Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi tie in heir scores - Will both become Prime Minister?
I have a request to you Mr Thapar. Since you are a very senior journalist and media celebrity, please don't write such lengthy articles in Hindustan Times or elsewhere just to fill the space without keeping in mind your reputation and earlier achievements. Even these type of articles where you assess the two gentlemen for Prime Ministerial candidature - assess them on more grounded parameters like their achievements, contribution to country's progress, connect factor with public and many more that I can suggest you.
