Let me unmask Rajiv Gandhi's communal mind-set.
Leading election in Dec 1984, he unleashed communal campaign in Print!
Created by his cousin Arun Nehru's friends in Rediffusion, the campaign depicted Sikhs as enemy, out to divide and destroy India.
This was one of that series:
Read the ad's copy that balatantly targets Sikhs:
"Why should u smile uneasily at yr next door neighbor just because he belongs to another community or speaks another language?
Why should feel uncomfortable riding in a taxi driven by a taxi driver who belongs to another state?
Rajiv Gandhi's campaign was based on negativity that aimed to create hatred against Sikhs.
Sikhs living in great fear, had the only self-defense provided to them by the constitution was Ballot. They turned out in large number to vote wherever they lived.

#LokSabhaElections2019
A personal experience from #Ernakulam
Given the long weekend here, I met my neighbours, friends, old colleagues to explain the good work of our PM & urge them to vote for BJP candidate @alphonstourism
Got some revealing patterns on how voters here think
1/
1. Church rules-The Elderly are aware of PM Modi's work & appreciative, but very few non-hindus said they'd vote for BJP.They said they have to vote as per what the Church said
2.The LDF supporters in the Community will vote for Hibi Eden since LDF nominee,P Rajeev is a Hindu
2/
On being asked why so,pat came the answer Ekm hasn't been represented by a non Christian!
I checked,only once a VV Menon in 1967,for last 52 years, only Christians have been MP fm here
So its community at the cost of party ideology & this from even educated, professionals!

1.If by some fluke I got Nobel Prize for literature, our MSM would not show a fraction of the interest in me as they do when I make a critical comment against Congress Yuvraj. Countless articles written already on just ONE tweet mocking @RahulGandhi on his promising more freebies
2. I wrote 6 more tweets explaining reason for rage behind my statement. It amounts 2 treating people of India as bhikharis incapable of earning their living--instead of providing them what they need most--world class education & well paying jobs.But none in MSM took note of them
3. Bribing voters with free mangalsutras, free TVs, cookers, dowry 4 daughters, laptops, cancellation of bank loans or monthly dole is obnoxious. Netas & Babus prefer living on freebies. Ordinary people of India prefer earning their own living rather than depend on sarkari bheekh
