The one whom Rajiv Gandhi had not even awarded ticket to contest elections that person P.V.Narasimha Rao became India’s Prime Minister. Lots of shadow boxing was going for prime minister’s race specially amongst Sharad Pawar, Rajesh Pilot, Pranab Mukherjee, Madhavrao Scindia, Arjun Singh etc. Most enthusiastic amongst all of these was Sharad Pawar. But he was put down by an argument that he speaks only two languages Marathi and Hindi while P.V.Narasimha was made Prime Minister as he spoke seven languages. After this Sharad Pawar began taking English language tuitions from two teachers and he filled up the deficit of English language. Today Sharad Pawar speaks in English even in Maharastra. Actually there is no need to speak English in Maharastra.
Deve Gowda did not speak any other language other than his own, even then he became Prime Minister! If one language cannot be spoken then translator can be arranged. There is no difficulty in this. Then the question remains as to why Eurasian Brahmins did not allow Sharad Pawar to become Prime Minister? Its answer is Sharad Pawar is not ‘pant’. He is a Shudra according to the Varna system. Even today to satisfy Marathas who are denied reservation expresses the hope of himself becoming Prime Minister. But now everyone understood his political game.
This P.V.Narasinha Rao took the oath of office of Prime Minister on 21st June 1991 which is a death anniversary of Dr.Keshav Baliram Hedgewar (perhaps he must have taken the oath of completing the incomplete task of Hedgewar). He took oath on the death anniversary of RSS founder Dr.Keshav Baliram Hedgewar and completed his unfinished task by demolishing Babri masjid on 6th December 1992. To demolish masjid P.V.Narasimha Rao organized special free trains via railway minister C.K.Jaffer Shariff.
