No question of rethink on Modi as PM instead in our party BJP - Grewal
Samrala - 18 November 2013
BJP Kisan Morcha National Secretary and Parbhari Himachal Pradesh Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal said that there is no question of rethink on Modi as PM instead in our party BJP. He said that Congress party dirty tricks behind statements rather Congress should clarify its candidate as PM. Grewal said that politics is not dirty but the statements of the leaders are making it. Lambasting over Congress party dirty tricks BJP in a significant statement ruled out any rethink in Gujarat CM Narendra Modi as the party PM Candidate. Talking with the media persons here today Grewal remarks in the wake of reports on two websites which claimed that illegal surveillance of a young woman had been ordered by former minister of state for home Amit Shah at the behest of his SAHEB seen as a veiled reference to Modi. Dismissing the allegations the National Secretary said there is no question in our party BJP of doing a rethink on our PM candidate even if a thousand baseless allegations of this kind are made against Narendra Modi. He said that BJP had on Friday circulated a statement issued by the father of the woman concerned that he had himself approached Modi to seek surveillance. This was because she was in Ahmedabad to tend to her ailing mother and needed to commute at odd hours. Grewal said that BJP's National President Rajnath Singh’s strong support for Modi is significant as he has backed the chief minister for the PM post in the face of opposition from party heavyweights like L K Advani, and this will help Modi against those in the party who have argued that he will be a controversial nominee. The Gujarat CM has maintained a silence on the allegations, which are bound to worsen the bad blood between Congress and the main opposition, with BJP having repeatedly accused the Centre of using CBI to target Modi. Grewal said that our party BJP had already said much earlier that we apprehend that the dirty tricks wing of Congress will make such baseless allegations against Modi as the elections draw near Instead Congress should clarify as to who is its PM candidate.

Why Congress demands for banning opinion polls ?
Ludhiana 05 November 2013 -
BJP Kisan Morcha National Secretary and Parbhari Himachal Pardesh Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal while countering the Congress demand for banning opinion polls said that the psephology is still maturing in India and some opinion polls do go wrong but it does not mean they all should be banned.
Talking with the media persons in his office here today, Grewal said that a ban on such polls cannot be considered based on who is demanding the ban.
Clearly, opinion polls are also a part of "Right to freedom of speech and expression" of Indian Constitution. Restricting them is constitutionally neither permissible nor desirable. Grewal said that the opinion polls are only opinion polls but some of them have acquired credibility and some can easily be ignored. So why ever it may be the reliability or otherwise of these polls, can they be prohibited or banned. He said that many opinion polls conducted recently show as Prime Ministerial BJP candidate Narendra Modi ahead Rahul Gandhi is widely seen as the PM probable for Congress.
Opinion polls on the ensuing Assembly elections show BJP as the clear winner in the BJP ruled states Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and the Congress ruled Rajasthan. Grewal stated that the polls can if be legitimately banned in India, the next step would be to ban political commentators from giving assessments favourable to some and adverse to some others. He said that the poll panel is best advised to keep away from this controversy and allow the market place of democracy to accept or reject the findings of opinion polls in India.
