It is very much disquieting and distressing to see the way in which the Chief Minster of Maharastra Mr Ashok Chavan has misbehaved with Amitabh. He went to the extent of saying that he would not have attended the inaugural function for the second phase of Varli- Bandra sea link. This is exceedinly ridiculus and rubish. Mr Narendra Modi can not be equated to Gujarat just because He is the Chief minister of Gujarat. This equation reminds me of , ” Indira is India” slogan coined by a foolish Congress President Mr Barua. If Mr Modi is equal to Gujarat, then The Prime Minister should not invite Him even for the conference of Chief minister. Modi the individual can be a controvertial figure and He has every rightto be so. Having said that Amitabh Bachchan has accepted to be the Brand Ambassador ( Tourism) for Gujarat which happens to bea state within Indian Union. Tomorrow somebody else can become Chief minster of Gujarat in some Chief Ministers comes and go but Gujarat remains. The under the shadow of Sonia Gandhi has every right to nurture the prejudices against Modi, that is perfectly all right in a Democracy. It is a truism that Modi the individual is different from Modi The Chief Minister because Chief Ministership is the constitutional institution.
