The sharp shooters of RSS / BJP juggernaut are losing their marbles
Never ever a political party had appeared such helpless as the BJP appears to be in this critical phase during the general election 2019. Literally, devoid of any tangible point to score, it has fallen upon the old worn out formula of majority appeasement. It is in doldrums.

The entire team of RSS / BJP seems to have realised that NaMo is no longer a brand that could bring the same dividend that he did in 2014. Never ever a minority was ever threatened in any democratic country indirectly as it is happening in the social secular democratic republic of India today by the party that is ruling in most of the states and at the centre. 

Love Jihad, Ghar Vapsi, Gau Raksha, Vande Matram, Ram Mandir and the Frankenstein of Pakistan are no longer the bets that are reassuring the return of power to Saffron Brigade. Sentimental issues sound boisterous but promised jobs, elimination of corruption, black money, rising prices and achche din are the big questions that are calling for substantial response. Emotions can't fill the empty stomach. Sentiments can't be the substitute to fly the stranded planes of Jet Airways. What is going to happen to 20,000 jobs of the now defunct airlines? 

Dislocation and unemployment are the real issues. Suicides of farmers are bitter truths. Failed enterprises of small business after the note-bandi, killing of innocent Indians in the name of eating choices, are the cardinal sins of public welfare that looks straight into the eyes of comity of nations. The grievances of poor can't be silenced in the name of pseudo-nationalism and faux patriotism. 

No one in the team of bhakts is discussing on TV channels or print media about the latest report prepared by Azim Premji University and it is high time when we hear the name calling of Azim Premji ? the greatest philanthropist India has ever produced as anti-national. 

According to this study, at least 50 lakh Indian men lost their jobs between 2016 and 2018. The report is titled 'State of Working India' has been prepared by the university's Centre for Sustainable Employment. It states that the overall loss of jobs in this period could be much more because the present study focuses only on job loss among Indian men. The report says that the data shows that decline in labour force participation "coincides with the demonetisation of high value currency notes in November 2016". However, the authors have said that they cannot "ascribe any causal link [between demonetisation and decline in labour force participation] based only on these trends". 

It said that a further breakdown of the job loss data shows that men with varying educational qualifications were affected differently in this period. The report says that men with lower education levels were more affected than their counterparts who had a diploma or degree. This was true for both rural and urban areas. The report says there has been no recovery ever since the decline started in September-December 2016. "Whether or not this decline was caused by demonetisation, it is definitely a cause for concern and calls for urgent policy intervention." 

Demonetization failure, GST fiasco, no progress on Namami Ganga, hundred smart cities, disappearance of several Modis with Banks Loans and Rafael Drama are the sharp barbs that are causing the pain to the psyche of nation. 

Problems of Kashmir and a surgical strike at terror camps in Pakistan had given some respite to the exhausted planners of RSS strategists. However, the trump card of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur that had a basis of 'double or quits' from the beginning seems to have boomeranged as the overconfident and overenthusiastic accused-on-bail-on-health grounds Sadhvi tried to punch above the weight. She has literally abused and cursed the efficient, brave and honest police officer who is the Ashok Chakra medalist and martyred-for-nation ? the late Hemant Karkare. 

Now, the loud mouth saffron candidate from Bhopal has pushed the RSS brigade into a catch?22 situation. The cunning and shrewd politicians of RSS / BSP are caught in the cleft stick. They can't call a Martyr as Desh Drohi; they can't curse a great dead officer like the Sadhvi Thakur did; they can't withdraw the candidature of Sadhvi. In search of convincing middle ground that could be the saving grace, they are now saying that what Sadhvi has said was her personal opinion and she has apologised. It is skating on the thin ice. 

A study had already revealed that Sadhvi Pragya was not tortured in prsion as she claimed. The BJP has no answer for the observation that why no action was taken against those officers who were beating the Sadhvi while in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and at the Centre, the BJP was ruling for the long time??? 

The situation is clear as a bright day. The coming days are not expected to bring the days of glory for the Saffron Brigade, and in frustration the RSS / BJP strategist are indulging in all sorts of vibes.  It seems more like a wild goose chase. Only the public would know on 23th May 2019. Let us keep our fingers crossed! Jai Hind!
