He is now No.2 just second to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His position as the senior most one after the Prime Minister is laudable as all through his political career his has all along been a position not only above board but full of chaste credentials in many ways. Thrice a cabinet rank minister in the central government preceded by his stint as a Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh (India) with a shining image, he played most vital a role in projecting Narendra Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate as from BJP when he was its President. At one stage he came out with a blank no even to BJP’s founder veteran when the latter was opposed to Modi’s candidature as PM. Himself holding the portfolio of the Home Minister in the Centre he is now the one to preside over the Cabinet meetings in the absence of the Prime Minister like he is already doing when Modi is away on a visit to Japan for 5 days. There was much of a controversy on his son’s alleged involvement in some scandal when he declared without mincing his words to quit his post even if there is a slightest possible substance in any charge against him or any member of his family. On work footing he keeps himself harnessed to the task indefatigably with full commitment to it. For Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh, India), his parliamentary constituency, he recently appointed an ex IAS officer to exclusively look after the work of renovation of the city and also develop it in full measure to achieve a global status for it. If all the political heavy weights follow his pattern none can stop India shining more and more on the world map.
