Modiji! Ration and speeches are not enough?

Patna: One thing is clear in the trends of the Lok Sabha elections so far that the BJP leadership took the battle of 2024 very lightly. At the time of writing the news, the NDA government has crossed the majority mark in the trends of all 543 seats. In the trends, the NDA is ahead in 270 seats. The thing to note here is that the Bharat Alliance is giving a tough fight in the trends. The Congress-led Bharat Alliance is leading in 251 seats so far. The figure of Bharat Alliance is worth noting because apart from these two alliances, other parties are also ahead in 22 seats. In such a situation, it cannot be predicted what political equations will be formed after the final results come out.

Seeing the trend, the slogan of ration and speech came into discussion

If we look at the entire phase of Lok Sabha election campaign, we will find that the NDA camp completely relied on 5 kg free ration and boastful speeches of PM Modi. Narendra Modi During the entire election campaign, he was seen raising issues in rallies ignoring the dignity of his post. PM Modi, who started the election campaign with the issue of Ram temple, kept raising issues like Mangalsutra, buffalo theft and Congress snatching the property of Hindus and distributing it to Muslims. As the election campaign reached its last stage, PM Modi did not refrain from using words like Mujra for the opposition parties in the Bihar rally.

For how many days will BJP get votes through free ration?

Throughout the election, when the vote percentage kept decreasing, many BJP leaders and workers kept hoping for free ration. BJP-supported journalists also kept saying that because of free ration, women have broken the shackles of religion and caste and have trusted PM Modi's guarantee. Especially in a state like Uttar Pradesh, BJP and NDA's allies were assuming that free ration would get a lot of votes from Dalits. They were assuming that BSP has no presence on the ground, so their voters will trust BJP for ration.

The public did not like the PM's statement

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Parliament that he alone will overpower everyone. All the BJP leaders including Prime Minister Modi kept making personal attacks on leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Tejashwi Yadav, Lalu Yadav, Akhilesh Yadav. BJP made the mistake of thinking that the way Rahul made personal attacks on PM Modi, it benefited them. When their leaders did the same thing for the opposition leaders, its effect is visible in the trends of 2024. The PM appeared to be a victim of narcissism in his speeches and interviews. When asked questions on any issue related to the public, he would answer it as if it was not an issue at all. On questions like inflation, the PM refused to accept it as an issue. When questions were asked about jobs, he called selling pakodas as employment. When asked about government jobs, he started telling PF account numbers. There were many such issues in which the PM bragged to his heart's content.

Blaming Congress for every problem

In 2014, the people of the country brought Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the centre with great expectations. The PM also showed many dreams to the people of the country. Every second or third day, he would come up with a new slogan so that people remain in the headlines. But there is a saying in villages – 'How long will we remain slaves if our stomach remains empty'. Whenever PM Modi's government was asked about any problem, it blamed Nehru and Indira for it. The limit was crossed when Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari was asked why he married twice and why he has more than two children, then Manoj Tiwari blamed the Congress government for this too. Manoj Tiwari is the same MP who was seen laughing and singing songs when common people were standing in queues during demonetisation.

I did not like foreign glitz for a long time

In almost every speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leaders, it was definitely said that India's respect has increased in foreign countries under this government. The regular meeting of G-20 in Delhi was also counted as an achievement of the Modi government. In such a situation, the question arises that how long will the people of a country where 80 crore people are expecting free ration, keep voting by looking at the foreign glamour. When the voter who was happy to see the glamour started thinking about issues like inflation and unemployment, he changed his mood. The public was forced to trust the weak opposition instead of trusting the strong ruling party. In the end, it can only be said that after this result, the entire BJP needs to introspect.
