"In politics, the cult of personality hurts the party," Ramachandra Guha, a well-known Indian historian, environmentalist, and writer, said at the 6th edition of KLF.
Guha resonated with various reasons for the personality cult of Narendra Modi. He considered Modi`s capacity for hard work, his devotion to politics, and his brilliant oratory some of the reasons that made Modi a personality cult. Modi`s personality cult has ramifications for the country`s various institutions, including the party, press, and judiciary. He also added that the abdication of sports players and film stars is another aspect of cult personality. "India, a partially democratic country, is now changing like Russia," he emphasized.
Guha also mentioned the development of a personality cult before Modi and considered Indira Gandhi to possess a strong personality cult. Guha is of the opinion that Narendra Modi and Indira Gandhi are on steroids.
