What Narendra Modi does on counting day

Published By : Admin | September 16, 2016 | 23:58 IST

Counting day is one of the most important days for a political leader. It is the day of judgment, that will determine the course of action for a leader and a party for the next five years atleast.

Thus, it is natural for any leader to be active and restless as the votes are being counted. Often, leaders are glued to their screens, workers and aides are entering the room with latest trends and results.

A notable exception is Shri Narendra Modi.

Is he glued to the TV screen? No!

Is his room full of aides and supporters, bustling with latest trends and results? No!

Then what is he doing?

By all accounts, it is business as usual for him. His daily routine continues without any hitch.

On 16th May 2014, when the rest of the world was seeing the way India votes, Shri Modi, the PM candidate of the winning party and the central figure in the entire campaign was continuing with his routine. He answered the first telephone call, from Shri Rajnath Singh and then went to meet his mother and Shri Keshubhai Patel to seek their blessings.

Its been like this in 2002, 2007 and 2012 as well.

For a man who never made high office the sole aim of his life, an election result day is just like any other day. Whatever the people have in store, will be accepted with humility.
