New Delhi, Aug 8 (): BJP campaign committee chief Narendra Modi is set to launch a tough and hard-hitting ‘Congress-mukt Bharat’ campaign in the month of September and is scheduled to have a darshan of Lord Krishna in Mathura, Vrindavan.
Due to his busy schedule earlier, Modi who expressed his anxiety over remaining absent for the Kumbh (Allahabad) and Ayodhya visits, has now desired to attend the BJP state working committee scheduled for next month. Party president Rajnath Singh is also scheduled to attend the state BJP meet, during which the party will likely announce its plan to seize its slide on the 80-MP strong UP.
Working hard to keep its cadres in UP in a battle-ready mode, party’s UP co-in-charge Rameshwar Chaurasia said that the discredited Congress-led UPA II government at the Centre is now set to accept defeat and grant the national political space to the Modi inspired BJP. Modi’s visit would be at a time when the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s (VHP’s) 84 kosi parikrama in Ayodhya begins from August 25 and will likely continue till September.
While the saffron crew has always maintained that Ayodhya was just the beginning, the temple movement has catapulted the BJP to power both in UP and the centre. One of the most repeatedly raised slogans of the BJP in the past has been, “Ayodhya toh jhanki hai, Kashi, Mathura baaki hai”.
The BJP is trying to signal a recovery of its Hindutva board in which it had witnessed defeat as the party toyed briefly with ‘India Shining’, a campaign which bounced back in the past and had been out of power since the campaign of “India Shining” in 2004.
Modi is likely to address and communicate with 15,000 workers of the party at the state executive meet in Vrindavan on Sep 25. Apart from predictable political tactics, the workers will also be taught booth management and other strategies for the elections, said party office bearers.
