[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]T[/dropcap]he landslide victory in the Hindi heartland of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand has made Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s position in the Indian politics much stronger. Add to that the collapse of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) dreams in Punjab and he can derive satisfaction of having had a good day at the office. Frankly no one expected 312 seats for BJP alone out of the 403 seats in UP and 57 out of 70 seats of Uttarakhand. Same is the case of the impressive performance by Congress under Captain Amarinder Singh bagging 77 of 117 seats in Punjab.
It appears as though a majority of Muslim women voted for BJP for its promise to stop the barbaric Triple Talaq system practised in the religion.
Manipur BJP maybe able to form a government with the help of allies and Goa slipped from BJP due to the recent rebellion and exit of some Right Wingers. The Paid News syndrome of certain sections of media tried its best to show that Uttar Pradesh will give Akhilesh another term. Though such narratives changed after the second round of polls, every media house blindly ignored the Congress party led by Amarinder and did fake coverage of Kejriwal’s AAP victory in Punjab. Was this due to the heavy advertisements pumped to media houses by Delhi Government including allegedly personal bribes to some media stars? At this rate, media will end up writing its own epitaph.
Expecting victory in Punjab, Kejriwal had decorated his official house in Delhi and all such decorations were removed by 10AM, after seeing the results. Every media person was unkind to Captain Amarinder Singh who was the former Chief Minister of the State. Indian media owes an answer for ignoring Amarinder Singh in their election coverage. It is a known thing that AAP was having wild plans if they get power in Punjab to misuse the state police and register cases in Punjab against Modi and BJP President Amit Shah. Kejriwal’s lust for getting power to control a Police force has taken a body blow and it is time he faced up to some of his own misadventures.
Mayawati has cursed Electronic Voting Machines and wondered how BJP won Muslim dominated areas. It is not difficult to see that BJP’s open challenge on Triple Talaq has yielded good dividends. It appears as though a majority of Muslim women voted for BJP for its promise to stop the barbaric Triple Talaq system practised in the religion.
This massive victory must liberate Modi from the clutches of Lutyens’ Delhi, which has been advising or putting hurdles on him for the past 30 months. He must take a call on construction of Ram Mandir and make it a reality before the next Lok Sabha election. This is the least he can do for a nation which remembers the Yug-Purush of the Treta Yuga (Lord Rama) for having ruled in a fair and just manner. He must act against the corrupt including in the National Herald case involving Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and Aircel-Maxis scam involving the former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and Robert Vadra’s land scams. Modi should show his mettle and avoid the Lutyens’ deal makers. This massive verdict is a golden opportunity for him to act. Will he?
