Modi, Amit Shah Win UP In Great Style, BJP Strategy Proved To Be A Superhit
ASWANI KUMAR ETURU
Lucknow: Yes, its an end of 15- year banishment for BJP in Uttar Pradesh which is clearly sweeping the State with more than 285 mark. In a triangular fight, in the biggest, most important and widely watched state of India, SP-Cong and BSP are almost rooted out by UP voters reiterating their faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
If we observe the vote pattern, UP voter favoured Modi’s aggressive postures than Akhilesh’s Vikas Mantra. It is Amit Shah, who mastered the strategy and monitored its implementation in every detail at ground level from 2014, with Parivarthan Yatras, Yuva and mahila Sammalenas, connecting youth through video conferences etc that helped the BJP to get a huge margins.
BJP was successful in balancing caste equations and schemes like demonetisation to get connected well with the people of UP which made both SP-Cong and BSP to lose abjectly. Surprisingly, this verdict crossed Ram Janna Bhoomi wave and the overwhelming victory in UP will certainly help BJP in Rajya Sabha where the ruling party did not have enough numbers so far to get important bills passed.
This is a clear mandate for Modi’s image and for a massive step he took three months ago in the name demonetisation which was lapped up even by the poor people in Poorvanchal. Now, a big question mark arises once again on the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, who held joint campaign with Akhilesh in UP elections. The Congress may bag Punjab and do well in Goa and Manipur. But ten States like Goa would not make a UP.
Akhilesh Yadav, who will submit his resignation, will continue as MLC, as he did not contest for MLA in this election. No doubt, UP, which is termed as Jewel of Crown in Indian politics, made BJP and Narendra Modi, sit on top of the hill.
