NEW DELHI: The BJP is looking forward to restore its name. The great debacle experienced in the Delhi and more so, the Bihar state election have successfully negated the integrity of the party. We can’t forget their act of defending leaders involved in controversies. This act alone has contributed to more of the embracement haunting them.
Most rural voters are no longer in support of BJP. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is determined to win back farmers trust and support. He has developed a strategy that is yet to commence. From February 18, he intends to address huge rallies focusing farmers in different locations of the states. A senior BJP leader openly said that the party is greatly focusing on farm votes. The leader added that the government has initiated strategies to boost the farmer’s activities and economy at large.
Unfortunately the party is faced with objections from their rival parties. BJP reform move on the land acquisition bill was greatly contradicted. In fact it appears like this attempt to improve the situations is disastrous and only accumulating debacle on their side. The opposition regard this bill as anti-farmer. As if that is not enough, the party is considered to belong to the rich! Clearly, the rivals won’t rest until they see to it that BJP is down on its knees.
That aside, the PM maintain his focus on upholding the party’s reputation. He intends to start rallies by visiting Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
Last week, the PM had a meeting with his team of ministers. They reviewed all policy decisions associated with farm sectors. PM Modi insisted that it was important for farmers to adhere to the new crop insurance policy. Other government’s initiatives like Krishi Vigyan Kendras and AGRI markets were also stressed.
Hopefully, farmers are going to ease their distress a little bit. Union budget have also directed its focus to them. The Prime Minister in conjunction with Finance Minister, are working on major reforms to ensure that crop insurance is also incorporated and properly taken care of in the February 29 Union Budget. In that case, all that farmers are waiting is an official announcement about the implementation of this exuberant idea.
Recently the Prime Minister has also met with leader of organizations that are greatly attached to the party. The organizations’ leaders were strongly urged to stay away from controversies. Here, controversies include the Dadri killing and the Hyderabad scholar’s suicide. The party been facing peremptory request to sack two central ministers that were accused of spearheading imposition of punishment to students by the Hyderabad University.
Furthermore, BJP leaders together with other ministers have been giving very controversial statements and comments concerning the killing of a Muslim man over an unverified beef in Haryana’s Dadri last year.
Another serious problem that pulls back BJP effort comes from the social media. PM has urged all those individuals who frequently use social media to stop spreading ideas that are against the party.
