You are probably aware that in India whoever does or says anything positive about Gujarat and specially Narendra Modi is hounded by the ‘secular’ Media, the Congress and Communist Parties, the politicians of Laloo and Mulayam types and off course the bogus activist bunch represented by Teesta Setalvad, Mahesh Bhatt, Swami Agnivesh, Mallika Sarabhai et al.
A developing Gujarat as endorsed by international delegates of Japan and Canada and President of the US India Business Council, Mr Ron Somers, that could be credited to the ‘Hindu Poster Boy’ Narendra Modi, is an eye -sore to a lot of Indians who love to shed crocodile tears for the poors and never fail to denounce corruption at the drop of a hat.
After industrialists like Tatas, Birlas, Mittals and Ambanis, filmstars like Preity Zinta and Amitabh Bachchan, Muslim leaders like Deoband Chief Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi, activists like Anna Hazare have earned the wrath of this self-proclaimed ‘Secular’ brigade, whose lifetime efforts are concentrated on trouncing Modi, it would be interesting to see what advices and reprimands, subtle or overt, does the cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar receive for his ‘communal act’ of helping Gujarat and its Chief Minister.
AHMEDABAD: Cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar has donated his 2003 Cricket World Cup t-shirt to Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, which would be auctioned to raise funds for the state’s ‘Save Girl Child’ programme.
The blue t-shirt, with Tendulkar’s name and number ’10’ written on it, was handed over to Modi on Thursday by Atul Bedade, former cricket player and Sachin’s close friend.
“Sachin has given his t-shirt from the 2003 World Cup to be used for charity,” Bedade said.
Sources in the chief minister’s office said that funds raised by auctioning the t-shirt would be used for the ‘Save The Girl Child’ programme.
