Modi’s speech laid bare his conceit, lack of etiquette – Dileep Padgaonkar

The one who takes the cake for violating every norm, convention and etiquette that public figures are expected to respect on Independence Day is Narendra Modi. He had the gall to announce that the nation should decide whose address was more effective: his own in Bhuj or the Prime Minister’s address from the ramparts of the Red Fort. It does not appear to have occurred to him that he is one among more than a score of chief ministers to speak to citizens. Such is his conceit that he placed himself on par with the executive head of the republic and challenged him to debate his own achievements in Gujarat with the achievements of Dr Manmohan Singh’s government.
