Now that I have got your attention with the fancy title, let me tell you the reason behind the post!! Actually, there are 2 reasons; First reason is to show how perfect Modi is when it comes to marketing. Second reason is to show his witty he is when it comes to political criticism!!
Following is the series of events about the Gujarat Tourism ad. Just look at the incidents;
- 12 January, 2015 – Gujarat Tourism launched a their ad on Youtube. Amitabh Bachchan campaigned for Wild Ass of Gujarat in the ad. He invited people to visit Little Rann of Kutch to see the Ghudkhur. I recommend you spending few minutes for the ad below.
- 21 February, 2017 – Akhilesh Yadav advised Amitabh Bachchan not to promote donkey’s of Gujarat. Akhilesh was indirectly referring to PM Modi. The statement was made during the assembly elections of Uttar Pradesh.
- 23 February. 2017 – Modi responded, “The people of the country are the bosses. I work tirelessly for them and will continue to do so. I take inspiration from the donkey because I work for people day and night.”
First of all, thanks to Mr. Akhilesh Yadav for promoting the ad! I got to see the ad because of you. Its beautiful. Thanks to the makers for such a creative shoot. Gujarat tourism campaign was initiated by PM Modi when he was chief Minister of the state. Using donkeys to promote tourism is anomalous. Only Modi can do this!! He is master of marketing, isn’t he?
Now come to the Akhilesh’s statement and Modi’s humorous reply. Modi has witty heart when it comes to reciprocating criticism. He has shown his wittiness many times during his speeches in Loksabha and Rajyasabha. One such example is the comment ‘Raincoat during bath’ on former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh.
This is the reason why I adore Mr. Modi. This recent donkey remarks made me curious about the Wild Ass Sanctuary in Gujarat. Now, I am planning to visit Little Rann of Kutch to see Indian Wild ass aka GhudKhur.
Do you know?
