Narendra Modi should never be sent on any foreign trip because with his naivety he is giving a bad name to India.
By Rakesh Raman
The jet-setting Prime Minister (PM) of India, Narendra Modi, is so fond of traveling abroad that in the past over five years since he became the PM, Modi has aimlessly visited more than 50 countries. Today (October 29), he is vising the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for seeking investment – which is a trade subject on which Modi has no knowledge.
He is wasting public money worth millions of dollars (or crores of rupees) on his foreign tours that are nothing more than the fun trips of a simpleton who is desperately trying to find an identity on foreign soils.
Obviously, people of India including the opposition parties are perturbed over Modi’s excessive foreign excursions because there is no Return on Investment (RoI) analysis available on his travel expenses. Reports suggest that Modi has spent more than Rs. 2000 crore on his useless foreign tours.
It is largely believed that Modi goes to foreign countries frequently as a marketing agent of his corporate friends. For example, it is alleged that the decision to purchase 36 Rafale aircraft from Dassault Aviation was taken arbitrarily by Modi when he was touring France. It is said that the Rafale deal aims to give undue monetary benefit to one of Modi’s corporate friends.
But is Modi a suitable person to represent India in other parts of the world? No; because Modi is perhaps the most naïve and illiterate PM that India has ever seen. He can’t utter even a single word about any modern subject. His level of knowledge is not more than that of a bumpkin.
There is a huge controversy in India about the educational qualifications of Modi. Almost all people in India and abroad know that Modi is not an educated man and cannot talk on any intellectual subject.
Recently, this bitter reality was reiterated by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi when he questioned Modi’s educational qualification. He said that no one knows if Modi had ever attended a university.
Also, a political outfit Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) headed by Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal says that the academic degrees being shown by Modi to prove his literacy level are fake. AAP’s allegations against Modi carry weight.
Picture this: Even when Modi reads the speeches written for him by others, it’s difficult to make heads or tails of his meaningless utterances as he is almost uneducated and speaks in broken English language. Recently, West Bengal Chief Minister (CM) Mamata Banerjee said that Modi can’t speak a line in English properly and needs constant help from a teleprompter.
The illiteracy of Modi can also be calculated from the fact that in more than five years of his tenure as PM, he held only one press conference which was so weird that Modi did not respond to even a single question and kept sitting like a statue.
If Modi is so illiterate and can’t speak properly, why is he going abroad so frequently as the PM of India? And what does he say to foreign leaders when he does not have knowledge of any subject?
In fact, Modi should never be sent on any foreign trip because with his naivety he is giving a bad name to India. And no wise person would attend his events in India or abroad.
If foreign corporate leaders or politicians are making a beeline for Modi, they see a foolish buyer in him. As the PM of India, he is squandering public money worth billions of dollars to buy foreign products and services which are not required at all in India.
Modi is spending public money lavishly just to gain some cheap publicity for himself on foreign lands because as an illiterate, Modi is suffering from inferiority complex.
If Modi is so bad in his conduct, how did he become the PM? Actually, he wins the elections by exploiting the religious sentiment of Hindu voters (almost 80% of people in India are Hindus).
Modi, who was an accused in the Gujarat riots of 2002 in which nearly 2,000 Muslims were murdered, won the Lok Sabha election on the promise that he will make India a Hindu Rashtra (a nation only for Hindus).
Most Hindu voters bit the bait and voted for Modi as a religious demagogue rather than a wise leader. The dilemma began for Indian people as soon as Modi became the Prime Minister in 2014 because he is not trained to manage any field that requires professional competence.
In the 2002 Gujarat riots, while about 2,000 Muslims were killed, there were incidents of rape, robbery, and widespread destruction of property affecting Muslims.
It was alleged that the killings were executed at the behest of Modi who was then the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Although Indian courts have almost exonerated Modi in this case, most Muslims in India still believe that Modi was responsible for Gujarat massacre. The less said about the Indian courts, the better.
According to Human Rights Watch, the attacks against Muslims in Gujarat were actively supported by state government officials and the police. Police told Muslims, “We don’t have any orders to save you.”
As a result, the U.S. administration denied visa to Modi in view of the allegations of human rights violations against him in the 2002 incidents of riots and carnage. But now as he has become the PM of India, Modi is visiting the U.S. frequently because now he enjoys political immunity.
Deformed Democracy Under Modi
Modi is not the true leader who should represent India in global forums. It is largely believed that Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) win the elections deceptively by tampering with the electronic voting machines (EVMs). And where they cannot manipulate EVMs, they hoodwink the voters with false promises and dirty tricks.
Under Modi government, the already deformed democracy in the country has become a plutocracy or perhaps kleptocracy (the rule by thieves) controlled by the corporate bigwigs who hobnob with Modi.
The democracy in its current form is promoting only incompetence, and incompetent people like Modi become the rulers of highly competent and educated people who are being treated like slaves. This is the main reason that India continues to exist as an underdeveloped country.
While people of India have been suffering for the past seven decades under the rules of all political parties, there is an immediate need for a countrywide movement aimed to usher in a new competence-based political model.

The main objective of the new model is to allow only domain experts to handle different fields of governance, and uneducated people like Modi should not be allowed to even contest the elections. Meanwhile, the global leaders must neglect Modi who has brought disaster for India.
