BJP: Worried about democracy?

The BJP Working Committee meeting in Hyderabad ended with much fanfare, but it is not yet known what the BJP governments and the party have resolved to do, but from the speeches of the leaders who attended. Some notable points have emerged. Like the call for the betterment of the weaker sections of the minorities (Pasmanda), the abolition of familyism in politics and the hope of continuing the BJP-rule for the next 25-30 years!

As far as the weaker section of the minorities i.e. Muslims is concerned, there is no doubt that 80-90 percent of their people come from such classes. All these people were first Hindus. These people are poor, working people, belong to backward castes and are mostly illiterate. This has also been a major reason for their becoming a Muslim. Even those rulers were unable to save these benevolent people of foreign rulers. Due to the partition of India in 1947, their condition became worse than before.

A handful of smart people did take advantage of their minority, but the economic, educational and caste status of most Muslims remains the same even today. The gimmicks of politics have only strengthened their separatism. If BJP pays special attention to them, then the country will be well. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has rightly said about their gratification, not their appeasement.

Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat has already said that the DNA of Hindus and Muslims of India is the same. It is a matter of satisfaction that the BJP is not giving importance to the incidents of Udaipur and Amravati, otherwise anarchy could have spread in India. This is a sign of the forward-looking leadership of the BJP. As far as familyism is concerned, I have been writing against it regularly, but the danger to democracy in the world is not only from familyism, but also from the arrogance of leaders and workers.

Did Napoleon, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao Zedong, etc., come to power because of familyism? He had kept the roots of democracy whey on his own. If the policies of the BJP-Government are not ostentatious, they can continue to rule for the next 25-30 years, but the fear is that the leaders of the BJP may not continue to become autocratic, like Indira Gandhi She was gone

There is no doubt that India’s opposition is in turmoil at the moment. It does not have any solid policy, nor does it have a leader, but it is also true that keeping the opposition alive is also very important in any democracy. To save the government from drowsy, there is always a need for an earful opposition.
