The Dangling Modifier

A yorker is launched from a Murdoch newspaper. It swings crazily and strikes two unlikely targets: Vasundhararaje and Sushma Swaraj.

Namo’s Dilemma
  Opposition Dilemma

  • To allow Sushma and Vasun­dhararaje to continue, or demand they resign
  • To step up probe by ED into IPL and Lalit Modi. Risk: More skeletons may come tumbling out
  • To check P. Chidambaram’s challenge to release India-UK correspondence
  • To defend Sushma and Vasundhararaje, especially during Bihar campaign
  • To defend probe against Robert Vadra and not begin one against Dushyant, also accused of cronyism
 
  • To get Sushma dropped from ministry, which will strengthen Modi
  • To give Sushma a lifeline by sugges­ting a SIT or JPC that will take its time
  • To risk opposition unity by making too much noise about “conflict of interest”
  • To explain the UPA government’s failure to take probe against Lalit Modi and BCCI to a logical conclusion
  • To answer charges that the UPA government did not do enough to get Lalit Modi to return to India
