Why BJP can't afford to lose Gadkari!

That Congress is digging its own grave is too apparent. That it is a party full of unbelievably corrupt is also something that is established in public perception. And that win-or-lose, Arvind Kejriwal has been the man responsible for giving the maximum dent to Congress’ image in its entire history is also established! However, what is most amusing is how, during this entire fall and fall of Congress in public perception, BJP has remained a mute spectator, gaining nothing out of the whole issue.

In fact, they have been also busy digging their own grave! Every time a state-level leader with a mass following becomes powerful in BJP and acquires a stature, the big guys in Delhi seem to be too intent to kill that rise. Look at what happened to Kalyan Singh, the low-caste leader who actually helped BJP win a majority – the first and only time – in UP. He was thrown out. Look at what happened to Uma Bharti, the lady who unseated and threw out popular Digvijay Singh from power in MP. She too was eventually thrown out. Look at how they have treated Vasundhara Raje, the lady who won them Rajasthan. She has been humiliated. Look at Yeddyurappa – conceded he has been corrupt, but he was the man who won Karnataka for the BJP... He has also been effectively thrown out. And the worst of all, look at Narendra Modi, where those are BJP leaders from Delhi who have spread rumours that he is not a fit candidate to be PM.

Strange indeed are the ways of BJP wherein Raman Singh and Shivraj Singh are the only two who seem to have understood the art of staying alive in the party by not showing their might around too much! It seems that some Delhi-based BJP leaders, who apparently can win the maximum Rajya Sabha elections, are dictating terms in the party, which – unlike the Congress – seemed to be having inner party democracy in reality. For a fact, BJP is not a mother-and-son or father-and-daughter party, where anything and everything can be manipulated. However, the Delhi-based few apparently have become masters at manipulating the Delhi-based 24x7 media – which lives on hysteria and worse – and having their way. Thus, in the middle of all the Congress-bashing – when Kejriwal was in a hurry to prove that he was not a BJP man and therefore, without finishing off his Robert Vadra issue, went looking for something against BJP – Gadkari seemed to have become the collateral damage!

It is BJP itself digging its grave….why don’t they show some unity?

Atanu said...

BJP will have to pay in the long if they don’t start identifying who are the ones among the very few right man in their party.

Don’t know how far the allegations on Nitin Gadkari by Kejriwal was true but knowing Gadkari,I really want him to be an integral part in the country’s decision making team.

Raj said...

I am a huge supporter of the BJP and want it to be in power next year….do something and get India rid of Congress.

Alok kumar said...

Now I know that BJP has several reasons on why they can’t actually lose Gadkari!

pankaj said...

Its nothing new…..politicians are corrupted and selfish.Its not surprising that they don’t support their own man.

TATAN said...

Does the media have something better to do... they always target the wrong person and telecast baseless news.

Dipti Nayak said...

As long as such selfish and corrupt people exist within the party,the country won’t progress.

Apoorv said...

Who are the ones judging Modi not fit as PM’s post?Why don’t they have a good look at themselves.

Sangeeta Raipuria said...

The least said about the media the better!!!!!

suman kumari said...

People expect us to be united.How can the rest of the country be united when there is no unity within one of the top political party itself.

Rajesh Sharma said...

Everything is going to be wasted. Be it the good and able leaders in BJP or Arvind Kejriwal’s effort.

Nutan Xalxo said...

Media in India are biased to an extent that can’t be explained….they need to understand their importance and start doing their duty honestly.

Ravi Rawat said...

Its really sad to see no unity even within the same party.

swati gogia said...

BJP simply can not afford to lose Nitin Gadkari because other than him and Narendra Modi,they don’t have much in their party.

Sushan Jain said...

Yes it true that BJP acting like an expectator watching cricket world cup..... but in this case here the contesting teams are the so call mother son duo and Mr Puppet on one side and India's very own Julian Assange a.k.a robin hood Arwind Kejriwal on the opposition side ..!!

Dipti Nayak said...

It would be interesting to see Gadkari as a candidate for the post of PM.

Sudhir Kumar said...

Yes…a pity indeed that the media ignored Robert Vadra’s case and exaggerated Gadkari’s case too much!

Surender Singh said...

Seeing the present scenario,BJP seriously cannot afford to lose Gadkari at any cost.

NP said...

Though I am a supporter of BJP I am not satisfied with their performance as an opposition.They will not get another golden opportunity to throw away the most currupted,the most ineffecient,the most non-functioning govt.If they can not do it this time,they will never get another chance.Give Mr.Narendra Modi a chance,he will do it.
