The ‘my 1.25 billion Indians’ phrase of Narendra Modi is somehow challenged in all the instances. The most recent was the anti-Muslim words of VHP leader, Pravin Togadia, though not a direct face of the BJP.
The BJP, which until recently was recognized as the political group advocating the construction of Ram Temple, has now fetched massive support on entirely distinctive lines. Development, prosperity of all, and betterment of the backwards are the standpoints which have encouraged the mass to extend incredible faith to the BJP. Declaration of Narendra Modi as the prime ministerial candidate a few months ago was a measure to gain acceptance among the youth as well as the communities that did not yet link themselves with the BJP. This measure has definitely boosted the reputation of the party; however bottlenecks are many.
It is a known fact that a predictable win makes the winning squad overoptimistic and mistakes tend to happen. Same seems to be the case with the BJP leaders. Instead of upholding the trust that the general public has extended, a few leaders are making every attempt to brighten their individual political career by resting on the shoulder of Narendra Modi. And, it is unhappy to witness that the party has not inflicted any sturdy measures to curb this practice. The general public including communities that for the very first time looked to favor the BJP isn’t viewing this as a pleasing thought. Instead, the hard work of past many months is on stake.
To make good what has recently dented party’s repute, the senior leaders have to take charge and reflect willingness to curtail such instances. Plus, proactive measures should be resorted to so as to prevent any such deliberate occurrences in the future. Those not a part of the BJP; however are the advocates of strict Hindu nationalism, should not be allowed to harm party’s standing.
The nation looks forward to being governed by a leader who has so far promised dignity and prosperity of the society at large. In Modi's endeavor to uplift the economy and the living standards, he must be accompanied with unbiased and capable leaders. Surely, the BJP would deliver what all is promised in the party manifesto post win; a definite restraint on unjustifiable words of party leader too is the need of the hour.
