Modi is a secessionist : Khare

Khare is pushing the limits of reasoning here. Is he suggesting that Chief Ministers of States should work for the Center? May be, because there is CONgress at the center.
He has found evidence against Modi, Mayawati and Nitish Kumar -- all non-Congress chief ministers.

Selective evidence and selective interpretation is the essence of Khare-ism.

Wonder what he has to say about Raul Maino's fight for Bundelkhand.

The Hindu : Opinion / News Analysis : The idea of India is under assault statecraft
Narendra Modi seems to have won a famous victory, touting among other slogans and sentiments something called “Gujarat asmita.” The bottom line of that victory is the success he has had in rancorously pitting “Gujarati pride” against the rest of India. Rather than regret that a dichotomy can be invented between Gujarati pride and the pan-Indian sentiments, that victory has been particularly savoured by those who have reason to disapprove of the Congress. That is the Congress’ problem and challenge. But the trouble is that Mr. Modi belongs to a party that once spoke the language of “akhand bharat” and which still takes pride in positioning itself as the only viable and robust custodian of Indian national interests. Yet the Bharatiya Janata Party’s entire national leadership found it expedient to indulge Mr. Modi in his parochial assertiveness. A separatist incision into the notion of togetherness has been celebrated as a wholesome development.

Whats their problem with regional pride?
If a cricket player plays for his state Ranaji team then they mean to say that he is a separatist looking to create an LTTE?

What is your problem with regional pride Mr.Khare ? If a person loves and respects his mother, it doesn't mean that he is going to kill all other women.
Mr. Khare in this article is obviously trying to just criticize Modi.
