What does the land slide victory of BJP in 4/5 states mean?

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), in the centre has won in four out of five states namely, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa. Arwind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has won in the state of Punjab. AAP is fairly a new regional political party which has won only in Delhi and has no influence in other states, unlike Congress or BJP.

UP’s outcome is astounding and its impact on national politics is intense enough to change strategies for the upcoming 2024 Loksabha polls.

Communal politics is gaining centre stage, taking the place of welfare state. A severely backward state which struggled so much during the last regime has brought back the same regime despite receiving backlashes and setbacks during the Covid pandemic, and brutalities caused by the ruling BJP in various events, only reiterates the fact that communal politics is gaining prominence rather than growth politics. Illiteracy coupled with hate politics against minorities breeds Governments with ‘Hindurashtra’ goals. It is crystal clear where the victory of BJP is taking us in the future. The only other national party which has presence all over India, the Congress is letting victory slip through its hands by sheer strategical errors and underestimating its rivals.

Brand Modi has reigned and proved its saleability. Akhilesh Yadav Government showed good progress in terms of growth and employment whereas Yogi’s Government has a reverse trend of 2% growth as compared to 7% in Akhilesh’s. This is alarming how the majority mentality against muslims has taken over other sensible issues that affect everyday life in electoral preference.

It is now upto the opposition parties to scramble and create strategies for the upcoming 2024 parliamentary elections. It is a forerunner for the opposition to reflect on their own shortcomings and try their best.

I love news and entertainment and I like to share my views with people. This is for the English speaking Tamil natives, who can neither read nor write Tamil. Don’t think they grew up outside India, the sad truth is, people who live in Tamilnadu itself don’t know Tamil, which is not the case in other states. This is the reason I decided to write in English. so instead of ranting off about the status of Tamil, let me get into the news that was last week.
