No other political party can fool people like BJP.
On the contrary Congress always gets trapped in BJP’s crafty politics and can’t fight back effectively taking it to opposite camp. Things are becoming clearer now as it’s shaping up as if it was one big meticulous plan. Now the BJP has shown their cards by announcing ‘Ekta Yatra’ just before unveiling of Statue of Unity by PM Modi. This has been confirmed by Gujarat BJP’s spokesman IK Jadeja.
Sardar Patel was the architect of united India convincing all small and big states & royalties to form ‘Akhand Bharat’. But as is the saying in Gujarati “Soonth na Gangade Gandhi” are dime a dozen, there’s no dearth of Chhote Sardar or Bade Sardar in modern India cashing in Sardar’s name.
Sardar Sarovar Narmada Dam was a project entirely conceptualised by Pandit Nehru and he laid the foundation stone of the entire project. The credit first claimed for it was by Gujarat CM Chiman Patel who anointed himself as the first ‘Chhote Sardar. After him whoever occupied Gujarat’s CMO automatically assumed the title of ‘Chhote Sardar’ as if they were the ones who gifted Gujarat the Narmada dam project. This has been carried on by Narendra Modi too and is still continuing to do so.
Now a new political game has started in the name of Sardar Patel. Using the despicable rape of a girl on 29th September, a campaign against ‘Par Prantiya (migrants from outer states) was vociferously pursued driving thousands of innocent labour class people to flee for safety. The real perpetrators have been hiding behind a successful propaganda blaming Congress leader Alpesh Thakor and his Tahkor Sena. Whatever is the truth but political advantage of it is effectively harvested by BJP.
Let’s check the story behind this. Price rise index is going beyond 5.3%, Petrol-Diesel prices are racing towards century figure, Rupee is falling faster than gravity, essential commodities like milk, vegetables are sky rocketing, farmers aren’t getting MSP, land grabbing is in full swing following Bullet Train Project and Delhi Mumbai Express Highway albeit quietly (A separate story about land grabbing is coming), mob lynching, rapes, demonetisation GST woes are the burning issues staring sternly at BJP. Vikas has been buried deep, no one talks about it. So what is left to rouse passions of fire?
Sardar Patel is back in running in a state (Gujarat) that is the axis of Modi’s political existence. First a crafty plan of regionalism unveiled successfully. Now another shrewd slogan of “Ek Bharat, Shreshth Bharat” is unrolled to fool the public and pocket vote bank politics.
This is already being implemented with Dy CM going to Bombay and invited Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. CM Rupani will go to UP and invite UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Minister Saurabh Patel is to go to Bihar to invite Nitish Kumar. As planned, the ‘Ekta Yatra will be undertaken across the state dividing Gujarat in 4 zones starting from 19th October. Ekta Yatra will carry on till 29th October.
Stage is set to fool people on a grand scale. Congress will wake up when they will. Bit, people will have to wake up before that and call this pulling wool over their eyes in time.
Vikas Gando Thayo Chhe!
