The two most charming politicians who stand out are Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Pranab Mukherjee. Manmohan Singh was a better FM than PM and, as FM, Pranab Mukherjee was conservative and retrograde. P. Chidambaram was a better United Front FM than a UPA one. I saw the best of Advaniji in the ’90s. And in the case of Mr Narendra Modi, you can’t get a more hands-on man than him.
