There was always the growing clamour within the BJP for his elevation but there were silent whispers against his nomination too. While the more vocal group had wanted Modi to be the Prime Ministerial nominee of the BJP, the other faction always thought that such a 'controversial' figure will only make it difficult for the party to bring in new allies. But on Friday when BJP leaders took the firm decision of anointing Modi, the stage was set for a grand showdown between the BJP, its allies and the UPA. Will Modi be able to guide the party to a victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls or will he end up dividing and polarising the electorate? Will Modi harp on the agenda of development or would he fall back upon the issues of Hindutva and identity politics? Join us for a Big Fight with Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi of the Congress, Devang Nanavati of the BJP, Pawan Verma of JD(U), Mohd Adeeb, the independent Rajya Sabha member, who persuaded 64 other MPs to write to the US government requesting them not to grant Narendra Modi a visa, Modi supporter and Social Media Activist Vikas Pandey, and journalists Shoma Chaudhury, Ashok Malik and Arun Anand.
