THE GUJARAT VERDICT 2012
For a third time in a row, Narendra Modi with his brand of politics, has won a resounding victory in the Gujarat State elections. Though there was a sizeable section of society which was hoping for a change, their expectations have been belied with the final results.
All are painfully aware that the ground reality of Gujarat is indeed a far cry from what is being advertised. But in spite of that, the people have voted to maintain the status quo, hoping perhaps the years ahead will bring them some positive benefits.
For those involved in the struggle for truth and justice in Gujarat – their relentless efforts will undoubtedly continue – and now perhaps with renewed vigour.
