Modi’s lost opportunity towards reconciliation

By Ayub Khan,

The Indian media and a section of the American media as well, have been showering fulsome praise over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s public speaking skills.

Regardless of the fan outrage it cannot be ignored that Modi has failed to inspire confidence and hope. He had no healing touch to offer. His speeches were full of clichéd and vague remarks which can muster past the copy writer’s desk but are hardly befitting a leader who has just won elections with a thumping mandate. Modi disappointed the hopeless optimists with both what was said and what was left unsaid.
