The Imposter: Why I don’t like Narendra Modi!

I never had any serious opinion about him in the past. Was no fan of his ever, but I went ahead and voted for the BJP in 2014 in the hope that something good was coming our way.

It didn’t take me too long to realize that I made a mistake. I wouldn’t say I hate him, but I just don’t like him anymore.

My grouse with Modi arises from a very basic human level of consciousness and it’s different from most of the stories you read about the economy or other communal matters.
