“Let us not be complacent since the BJP is in power in 18 states, has over 400 MPs, and over 1,300 MLAs are thinking that victory of the BJP in any election is a foregone conclusion. Irrespective of electoral victory, we should work for people round-the-clock,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing party workers in May last year. The BJP has won people’s hearts because it follows Modi’s mantra. Political circles are debating over how long the BJP is going to rule the nation.
At the national executive meeting of BJP held in July 2022, Union Home Minister Amit Shah predicted that the party would continue in power for another 40-50 years, with India eventually leading the world and becoming Vishwa Guru.
There is a close link between the political action plan of the BJP and its ideology. The BJP is committed to making the nation a world leader and eradicating corruption, anarchy, family rule and fissiparous forces to bring back the past glory of Indian culture. The party wants to provide clean and transparent administration. It puts the welfare of the country above all considerations.
Whether it is an election to a small corporation or Assembly constituency or Lok Sabha constituency, the BJP fights the election using all its resources. Sometimes, it may not be possible to win the election; still, it wins a suitable place in the hearts and minds of people.
Modi, who had begun his political journey from local body elections and Assembly elections, went on to strengthen the BJP in Gujarat. Subsequently, he took responsibility for expanding BJP all over the country. He groomed the BJP as the largest party in world with 18 crore workers.
“Whether it is West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh or Telangana, every election and every voter is important for BJP. Our objective is to win the election and serve people,” says senior party leader and Union Minister Bhupendra Yadav.
During former PM Atal Behari Vajpayee’s regime, India had achieved success in many spheres of activity. However, complacency and lethargy set in later. Under the leadership of Modi, everyone has become active once again –right from an ordinary party worker to the party president. That is BJP’s work culture.
Everyone’s duties are clearly laid down. Party leaders know that if voters did not cast their vote for the BJP despite having a good team and good ideology, all efforts would go waste. In the organizational structure of the BJP, booth level management gets top priority.
The Congress is not able to understand why people are rejecting it. The grand old party’s losing streak is continuing despite Bharat Jodo Yatra undertaken by Rahul Gandhi.
The BJP always goes with a strong strategy to win the seats it had previously lost. It undertakes a scientific study on why most people did not vote for it. It assesses whether government schemes are working at the ground level and holds reviews with party leaders and people. This explains why BJP is holding its National Executive meeting in Delhi within six months of holding the same in Hyderabad. The BJP won in five states out of seven that went to polls in 2022: Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Gujarat, Manipur and Goa. Its target in 2023 is to win in nine states, including Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, and Chhattisgarh.
By the time of the 2024 General Elections, crucial changes are likely to take place in India. Central Vista, which is regarded as the identity of the country and its self-reliance, will become operational that year. The construction of Ram Mandir, regarded as a symbol of the glory of the country’s culture and spirituality, will be completed by January 2024. India is heading the G-20 nations of which the USA, China, Russia, France, Germany, the UK are members.
At a time when several countries are reeling under the impact of economic recession, the Indian economy has shown signs of recovery compared to the economies of the USA and China. There is no doubt that India will soon become world leader. Discussion about BJP is under way in every state because people have realised the impact of welfare and developmental schemes in their lives. Any political analyst would say for sure that the BJP is going to win the Assembly elections to be held in 2023 and the General Election to be held in 2024. People are aware of the deterioration in standards of opposition parties as well as the anarchic and corrupt administration in the states in which they are in power.
Among opposition leaders, none can be seen anywhere near Modi, who has emerged as the nucleus of national politics. Earlier, political analysts used to say that a particular party would win the elections because there is no alternative (TINA – there is no alternative — factor). Now they say there is only Timo (There is Modi only), according to a commentary by a political analyst. Still, every leader and every activist of the Modi-led BJP will work hard round the clock to win the hearts of people.
