Opinion: BJP Makes Its 2024 Plan Clear – Modi, Modi, Modi


Share post:

The hashtag says #ModiOnceAgain. The video has Prime Minister Narendra Modi, 72, striding in direction of the digital camera; he’s heard quoting well-known Urdu poet Nafas Ambalvi “Usse guma hai ki meri udaan kuch kum hai, mujhe yakeen hai ki yeh aasman kuch kam hai” (tough translation: a lot stays to be completed, our potential is limitless).

Color me not stunned because the BJP launches its marketing campaign for a historic third time period on the centre with Modi because the background and foreground. The BJP is just not talked about, neither is any minister regardless of the 56-second-long advert specializing in infrastructure improve of highways, roads, railways and metros.

Modi in his handle on the BJP’s nationwide government this week (delegates had cell telephones confiscated exterior the venue) mentioned that the social gathering has 400 days to showcase the “historic work” of his authorities en path to successful one other time period which might catapult the BJP to historic heights. Clearly, Modi is now fascinated about legacy and his place in his historical past alongside bête noire Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, who dominated for 3 phrases on the centre.

For this column, I spoke to 4 senior leaders from the BJP to get perspective on election preps. Three had an an identical line: that Modi has by no means misplaced any election he contested beginning in 2001 from Gujarat which he ruled for 4 phrases.

The massive battle for 2024 goes to be probably the most Presidential contest so far as the BJP is worried, and the nationwide government formally acknowledged Modi’s position because the BJP’s election-winning totem.

J P Nadda, the BJP President has received his time period prolonged until 2024 – this was reported solely final September by me in an String Reveals column – made no bones about Modi being the match-winner. Nadda highlighted that 9 elections are due earlier than 2024 and the BJP has the political urge for food to win all of them. He additionally made it some extent to point that with “private assaults” on the PM, the Opposition has acknowledged that he’s the important thing to the BJP’s success.

Up to now we now have seen numerous political avatars of Modi – the Hindu “Hridaya Samrat”, the “growth man” and this time round, the Modi iteration is reportedly going to be a “international statesman” who the world acknowledges as an efficient chief (consider his remarks on “this not being an period of conflict” within the context of Russia-Ukraine and the way they have been repeated by a number of world leaders), A BJP minister informed me, “The Opposition retains mocking us, saying that the presidency of the G20 is a routine affair the place it’s held by each member in flip. What they do not perceive is that we now have spun it as an enormous deal.”

In step with the worldwide statesman template, Modi additionally known as out unnamed folks (learn Narottam Mishra, MP, minister) who’ve made “attention-seeking statements” on movies (learn Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’) and have subsequently diluted the BJP’s deal with its “good work”.

The BJP has reportedly commissioned an intensive survey for the upcoming Karnataka election and solely three leaders together with Amit Shah and JP Nadda are aware about the outcomes. Modi had Karnataka on his thoughts when he had a really public chat with former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa on the sidelines of the large BJP assembly in Delhi.

Yediyurappa, who has been on an prolonged sulk, requested him to inaugurate an airport in Shivamogga, BSY’s stomping floor. An assurance has additionally been prolonged that son B Y Vijayendra will get a put up if the social gathering wins the state, one thing that had been agitating BSY for some time. So whereas Basavaraj Bommai will stay the Chief Minister, he just about despatched out an SOS to Modi throughout his presentation on Karnataka preps, asking the PM to make pit stops within the state repeatedly.

A really well-funded BJP has the successful “hawa” and “mahaul” (PR, tendencies) however has to crack the formulation for successful over the South, one thing Modi emphasised. Anticipate extra full-page ads, movies, jingles and even drones added on to the BJP election arsenal. Anticipate full Modi saturation as he’s the medium and the message for 2024.
