Mr. Narendra Modi (namo) apparently lacks self-confidence.
Proof: Contesting from two Lok Sabha constituencies, VAraNAsi (kASi) and VadodAra (BarODa).
Mr. Modi has already driven out the octogenarian 1991 President, Physics Professor, Mr. Murali Manohar Joshi from VaraNasi. I pity Mr. Joshi. I compare him to Legendary Sage Agastya who was banished from Varanasi to southwards, beyond Vindhyas.
vArANasi is a great Hindu pilgrimage Centre and place of Hindu renaissance, full of sAdhus who have votes. Thus, Mr. Modi is assured of success in Varanasi. There should not have been any need for him to contest from any other Constituency, unless he is unsure of his victory. In political chronological seniority, Mr. Aravind Kejriwal is a bachcha before him. There, should not have, hence been no need for Mr. Modi to feel an uncertainity or risk, except in case of a 10% unforeseen change in the wicket and pitch.
Now, Mr. Modi contesting from Vadodara indicates that he is unsure of Varanasi. But, suppose if Mr. Narendra wins in both the Constituencies. He will have to choose one. Whom will he choose? Either way, it will be injustince to one Constituency. There will, unnecessarily be a bye-election adding avoidable costs to exchequer.
This also shows that Mr. Narendra Modi lacks a spirit of his commitment to his own party colleagues.
Proof: Suppose he contests only from one constituency. Pray not, but let us suppose that he loses it, but his BJP Party secures the magic number 272+. He can chose the Rajya Sabha route a la Mr. Manmohan Singh and become Prime Minister. Or he can allow his own colleagues like Mr. Rajnath Singh, Ms. Sushma Swaraj, Mr. Lal Krishna Advani, Mr. Murali Manohar Joshi or any other Senior BJP leader to become Prime Minister. But selfish Mr. Modi will not like allow it.
Arun Kejriwal seems more courageous. He is contesting from only one Constituency. He is taking a risk of facing a bull like Mr. Narendra Modi. Suppose he loses, and AAP wins sufficient seats to form a coalition Government, he can always take a Rajya Sabha route, or even he can allow his colleagues Mr. Sisodia, Mr. Prashant Bhushan, Mr. Yogendra Yadav or any other leader to become PM.
