Caste system and Indian politics.
In the history of India, a person belonging to a backward class or lower caste has never become a prime minister.
Earlier, when the BJP had to choose between two stalwarts L.K. Advani and Atal Bihari Vajpayee, preference was given to Vajpayee, as the former was not a Brahmin and belonged to a Sindhi family.
Keeping in mind the checkered political history of India, one must endorse the writer's views. It is true that chances of Modi to become the next prime minister of India are slim. -- Anees Lokhande, Alkhobar
