Hardly within a day of its wining the elections BJP has revealed its true colors and the wide gap between its precept and practice. In his victory speech at the BJP headquarters, Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked loudly about running the country’s institutions democratically. When prime minister referred power as an opportunity to serve the people and BJP’s victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand to a new democratic change in Indian politics than why his party is not bowing before the people’s verdict by allowing the Congress to form government both in Manipur and Goa. BJP is clearly bulldozing the people’ verdict in a most undemocratic manner.
Congress emerged as the single largest party with 17 seats in the 40-member Goa assembly but BJP which failed to cross the half-way mark in the assembly elections getting only 13 seats has managed to get the support of Goa Forward MLA Vijai Sardesai known as “fixer” in politics three MLAs of Mahaeashtrawadi Gomantak Party and two independents to form a government with 21 MLAs apparently with money power. Sardesai support for BJP looks strange when he used to question the credentials of Parrikar as Goa chief minister and later as Defence minister.
In Manipur where again Congress is the largest single party with 28 legislatures as against the BJP’s 21 in the 60 member assembly . The invitation to BJP to form the government is apparently because of Najma Heptullah being chosen as Governor by the Modi himself.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is talking all about benefiting the poor people and the lower middle class of the country but on the contrary a whopping 322 of the 403 new lawmakers elected to the Uttar Pradesh assembly are crorepattis and obviously belonged to BJP. Seventy-nine percentage of newly elected BJP MLAs are crorepattis headed by BJP’s Ajay Pratap Singh .
As BJP got a massive mandate with 312 seats in the UP assembly elections as many as 143 have criminal cases ,including of murder .
Surprisingly Modi’s party is employing the beaten ways of getting power by poaching the leaders of other parties like BSP, Congress and Samajwadi party than how can he claim that the party will function for the interests of the poor and lower middle class and it has revealed no such culture so far that it will serve the people.
His victory speech lacks to deliver any direction and shows that he is at sea about the parameters that he seeks to achieve.
