The question arises that if there is confidence in public support, why does the ruling party force action against the opposition? Why did Amit Shah ask BJP workers to woo the opposition at ‘every level’?

How confident is Prime Minister Narendra Modi about winning this general election? If we talk based on their statements, media reports and public surveys that come out daily, the answer is that ‘they are not confident but completely satisfied’. But is it true?

Even before the announcement of the election schedule, the Prime Minister spoke in very clear words that the people decided to give him the mandate for the third time. Not only this, he further said that this time the BJP will get 370 seats in the Lok Sabha compared to 303 seats in 2019 and the NDA will cross 400 seats. The media also reported that the prime minister ordered the secretaries of the central government to prepare a presentation to finalize the agenda for the first 100 days of his third term. Addressing a meeting of officers and employees on the 90th anniversary of the RBI on April 1, the Prime Minister said with a slight smile that he can relax for the next 100 days, as he is busy campaigning. ; But they don’t have time after taking the oath because they still have a lot of work to do. Bureaucrats stationed in New Delhi believe that the task force has been asked to come up with good programs that can be implemented by the next government.

Why would any leader continue to play the ‘victim card’ in the midst of such great confidence and a triumphant environment? The Prime Minister hardly misses an opportunity to complain that the opposition is united against him; that he was determined not to let them work; That conspiracies were made against his government.

The question arises as to why the ruling party confident of overwhelming popular support would resort to coercive action against the opposition in the middle of an election. Why has Union Home Minister Amit Shah asked BJP workers in Madhya Pradesh to woo opposition people at ‘all levels’? Why did the BJP include tainted leaders like businessman Janardhan Reddy who spent years in jail in the Konkani scam? All these signs are not to be trusted!

Most of the youth have been unemployed for 45 years and despite efforts to hide it, the unemployed hit the streets in the states of North India. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, well aware of the ruckus created by the Agniveer project, reluctantly assured that the project would be thoroughly reviewed after returning to power. All methods are used to divert people’s attention, like special session of Parliament, white paper of UPA government (2004-2014), notification of women’s reservation bill and CAA law . This shows the panic of the BJP.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is not a man who speaks lightly. He said with full confidence that the BJP government will go. Some people may mock him, but many people take his words seriously. He also gave a stern warning to service bureaucrats to abide by the rules and regulations and refrain from using them selectively against the opposition. He said that no one will be saved after the election.

At the ‘Save Democracy Rally’ at Ramlila Maidan on March 31, he reiterated that ‘he cannot win more than 180 seats without EVMs and match-fixing. If the BJP wins the elections by cheating and then changes the constitution, there will be riots all over the country. Remember my point, such actions are detrimental to the existence of the country.’ This angered the BJP so much that it sent a representative delegation to the Election Commission demanding strict action against Rahul. The Prime Minister also appealed to the voters to give a befitting reply to the Congress. In Uttarakhand, he accused Rahul Gandhi of threatening to set the country on fire if the BJP wins the election, saying, ‘Elect them, don’t let them stay in the field’.

For the second time in two weeks, the leaders of ‘India’ came together to show unity at the Ramlila Maidan rally. Earlier, these leaders had gathered at Mumbai’s Shivaji Park at the end of ‘Bharat Jodo Naya Yatra’ on March 17. They had gathered to protest the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by the ED at Ramlila Maidan.

Some may have been disappointed to see Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi sharing the stage with Sunita Kejriwal, as it was Arvind Kejriwal who took on the Congress and the late Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit. Although Congress president Mallikarjan Kharge and Rahul Gandhi are firm that this election is not for strength of numbers or for competition between Congress and BJP, but this is an election to save the country and the constitution. From the same episode, Derek O’Brien expressed the same sentiment by saying that ‘Trinamool Congress India was, is and will remain united’. This opposition alliance has troubled the BJP.

By breaking the ‘India’ alliance in Maharashtra and Bihar, the BJP ensured that the opposition could not contest the election as one and that the opposition parties could not use their cadre power equally against the BJP. The former media adviser of Dr. Manmohan Singh Pankaj Pachori explains why BJP wants to create a split between Congress and AAP, citing the social media reach of the parties. He said BJP has the potential to reach 13 crore Indians on social media and WhatsApp. AAP (7 crore) and Congress (5 crore) together have the potential to reach 12 crore people. Smaller parties like RJD, TMC and DMK also have a good reach, which together surpass the BJP’s reach.

The BJP is trying to make the election a contest between the ‘honest and patriotic’ ruling party against the corrupt opposition party. Arrest of Kejriwal, ED attack on opposition leaders, CBI case against Mahva Moitra and demand of Rs 3,567 crore from Congress and fine from Income Tax Department (while political parties are not’ y regarding income tax). same conspiracy.

But this strategy doesn’t seem to work as the BJP itself is giving completely opposite signals. Of course, the Prime Minister attacked corruption and vowed to eradicate corruption in his third term, but he did not entertain the idea of ​​inducting corrupt leaders into his own party. When Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was asked at a media event why the BJP was inducting tainted leaders, she said that everyone is welcome to join the BJP. The anchor asked if the leaders being investigated by CBI and ED are also welcome. So in response he nodded and said with a smile ‘everyone’s welcome’.

The Supreme Court dealt another blow to the BJP against corruption claims by declaring the electoral bond scheme unconstitutional. The Election Commission receiving a notice from the court on the petition asking to count the VVpet slips and match them with the EVM number will also put the government in trouble. Apart from this, the court’s observation that due process was not followed while appointing the election commissioners in March also embarrassed the government.

The Prime Minister whom people saw mocking and mocking in April 2024 is very different from the Prime Minister in January who did his masterstroke of awarding Bharat Ratna to Prana Pratashtha and Chaudhary Charan Singh and Karpuri Thakur at the Ram temple in Ayodhya. They don’t seem to be convinced of the reason. Now they seem bitter, accusatory and hateful which is not the quality of a confident leader to say the least!
