Narendra Modi‘s Gujarat sent Qutubuddin Ansari to West Bengal. How ironic that Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee should return the favour with the Tata Nano.
How ironic that BJP ruled Gujarat should quietly trump BJP-ruled Karnataka in the race for the plant while B.S. Yediyurappa and team (and Y.S. Rajashekar Reddy and Vilas Rao Deshmukh) were running all over the place.
And how ironic that the plant which ran into trouble over 400 acres of agricultural land in Singur should now be located on 1,000 acres of land donated by the Anand agricultural university in Sanand.
And how might it further add to the halo around Modi’s “leadership”?
