Journey to Change The Nation

"The first Indian from the south of the Vindhyas to ever preside over the Dilli darbar was P V Narasimha Rao. Technically, it was C Rajagopalachari, as the first Indian to be governor-general. But CR’s post was titular. 

Narendra Modi is different. He fulfils all the qualifications of being an outsider, except that he speaks chaste Hindi. The business and military elite love him, but the cultural elite do not and the political elite remain wary. If he succeeds in winning power this year, he could well alter the nature of the Dilli darbar. That is what unnerves so many darbaris." More here.
