Rise of Amit Shah and Narendra Modi: Real talent paid well 14 July, 2014
In case you are anticipating a whole new era of politics, you are on the right track. We have all witnessed politicians becoming the leader of their squad on the basis of their last names or the number of years they have served politics, no matter they hold or do not hold the mandatory know-how of administration and delivery.
Right from electing Mr. Narendra Modi as the prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 general polls till the finalization of Mr. Amit Shah as the new BJP President, everything seems to work well in this pure anti-Congress party. Clearing all clouds and putting all arguments to rest, Mr. Shah has grabbed the honor that he very well deserves.

Until the news channels clearly announced that the BJP had solely won over 71 constituencies in the state of UP, I believe none of the political experts would have ever imagined this number. Mr. Shah, who worked in the state for just over one year prior to the polls, changed all the predictions, crossed all the boundaries, and won every heart.

Political groups with a history of many decades in the UP were sidelined to the core by this dexterous BJP leader. Who could have assumed that the BSP would just disappear from every equation? Indeed, the takeover by Mr. Shah as the BJP President promises new propositions and elevated outcomes.

The contribution of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh in mentoring and preparing leaders for tomorrow is remarkable. Associated with the RSS since his college days and ABVP in 1983, Mr. Shah must have realized the expectations of the Sangh Pariwar as well as the BJP, wherein he came into the picture in 1986.

Certainly, the leaders who have served RSS in the past have a much clearer and more progressive mindset owing to the fact that real groundwork and extensive know-how of the organizational structure teaches a lot. Those who relate themselves with the morals and views of the BJP can feel much relaxed as the new President is a graduate and a proven leader.

Now, is the coming in of Mr. Shah an alarming state for the Congress? We have heard many senior Congress leaders silently crossing the borderline and disseminating views on the failure of Mr. Rahul Gandhi in leading the party ever since he has been bestowed upon with this responsibility. BJP has sent across an exact message in the public that those who are accepted by the mass will be the ones serving them.

Promotions based on performance and not on person?s hold within the group has now become the deciding factor. And we can expect the leader who united the general public of U.P. to manage and bring together BJP leaders uncomplicatedly.

Many are alleging the decades old relationship of Mr. Modi and Mr. Shah as the prime factor for this selection. Remember, a leader is the one who can comprehend the nerves of the mass, can unite the group with nil differences, can fetch outcomes rather than just promising, and above all, has the unmatched ability to bring in all-inclusive betterment. For Mr. Shah, the challenge has just begun.

Upcoming elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, and Jharkhand are the foremost hurdles to be crossed resourcefully. Plus, BJP?s hold in the state of UP, Bihar, Gujarat, and other constituencies will not just have to be upheld, rather has to be heightened.

Lastly, with the Mr. Modi-led government at the center, which assures a thriving future and with Mr. Shah-led BJP, Indians can expect positive political restructuring, while the BJP can anticipate all new equations in states with limited presence.
