RSS working full throttle in Delhi to sail BJP through

New Delhi: With BJP president Manoj Tiwari proving to be ineffective to garner support of people as expected in Delhi, the RSS was asked around six months back to pitch in to work on the ground not only to tell people about the BJP but also assess who are the likely winnable candidates in a particular constituency in Delhi. Several surveys were conducted by the BJP but report from the RSS appears to be the real parameter.

 

The BJP is very particular about ticket distribution and push and pull will not work with Union minister Prakash Javadekar around as party in-charge of Delhi. The report of the RSS on every seat is going to be crucial in ticket distribution.

 

Caste, region and other considerations are being looked upon that could be some of the reasons for anyone to vote for any particular party. The BJP is still in double mind if it should go for chief ministerial candidate or not but ticket distribution is very crucial. With AAP already ahead of its rivals, the BJP will give three seats to SAD in Sikh dominated areas.

 

Since no other elections are around so RSS workers from other states will be brought in to campaign for the party besides chief ministers of all BJP-rules states, artists and Union ministers. The PM may address three and Amit Shah may address 7 rallies in Delhi.

CAA imbrioglio: Has crack started emerging in NDA?


Some voices of rethink on CAA have started enamating from the ruling NDA, Bihar CM’s statement on discussing it in state Assembly after supporting in Parliament, SAD demanding Muslims to be included in it and LJP too padelling similar opinion but softly. Apparently they want to keep their Muslim voters intact as managing Hindu votes is the responsibility of the BJP for alliance largly.

Kerala has already passed a resolution against CAA in its Assembly, Nitish too wants to discuss it in the house if everyone agrees of which the BJP may and may not agree. However, this will help the BJP speak its mind to reach out to people, some feel. The most important thing that even if the bill is passed against CAA in Assembly after it was cleared by Parliament, it does not have any constitutional validity. So is it just a posturing or more?

Though the Congress and RJD claim lion share of Muslim votes in Bihar but Nitish does not want to loose out whatever he gets when he says there should be a special discussion on CAA in the Bihar Assembly. The JD (U) is baffled with the attack of the RJD and the Congress. JD (U) vice president Prashant Kishor is campaigning against it right from the day one. So something is being discussed in the party. Meanwhile Nitish was more emphatic when he said that there was “no question” or need to implement NRC in Bihar.

Prashant Kishor, tweeted: “…would like to reassure to all – CAA-NRC will not be implemented in Bihar.” Prashant Kishor posted several tweets critical of party boss and even offered his resignation from JD (U). Another ally of the BJP, the Akali Dal, wants Muslims to be included in CAA. Has Nitish become too dependent on him or Kishor following dictate of his boss?

Has the BJP conceded to more minister demand with 3 state ministers for JD(U)?

By IndianMandarins 02 Jan 2020

It seems that stand taken by Janata Dal (United) vice president Prashant Kishor has been able to pay some dividend to his party with three berth likely for in the Modi government when reshuffle in the government takes place. Interestingly it is a win-win situation for everyone – JD (U) and the BJP -- if one dissects the entire matter.


The JD (U) was averse to the symbolic representation in the Union cabinet so it did not join the Modi ministry. It supported the CAA but got it opposed by Kishor who took a notch further demanding more seats for JD(U) in the forthcoming Assembly elections that the BJP rejected outrightly. The JDU is trying to assert itself in view of Shiv Sena parting ways.


The BJP apparently appears to have agreed making three junior ministers in the council but there is no role of the junior minister in the Modi council of ministers. Cabinet minister still has some say in the government. So they will be there just for counting it seems. If Nitish is playing his card so is Amit Shah, if Kishor is playing chanakya for Nitish, Shah himself is in the game.


Expansion in the ministry is expected after Union budget is introduced in Parliament and Delhi Assembly elections are over but both the parties are playing their cards very utmost dexterity. However, despite bickering among leaders from both the parties, top leaders brushed aside differences between the alliance.


Bihar Assembly elections are very crucial not only for the BJP but also for JD(U), so they will not take any chance in the situation where an aggressive RJD and hope of revival of Congress in thing at least for party workers.

BJP to train its MPs on public speaking, ideology in a two day camp

By IndianMandarins 02 Aug 2019

New Delhi: To tell its lawmakers how to behave, the ruling party at the Centre -- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- has planned a two-day training camp in the Balayogi Auditorium in New Delhi on August 3-4, 2019. Every member of Parliament of the BJP from both the houses will have to compulsory show up at the event to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with many other senior leaders.

The BJP leaders are of the view that this is an attempt of the saffron outfit to train and sensitise all its 381 members of Parliament on the issues related to parliamentary practice, debates, party ideology, public speech, handling media and even the internal issues of the party.

The meeting is important because of the fact that training session would give clarity to the BJP MPs on ideological issues which is important for the BJP. They will also be told not to speak out of turn and on such subjects that they are not well equipped with. The meeting will not only attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on both days but he is likely to speak at the event as well.

Sources in the BJP said that the meeting will also be addressed by speakers not only from the BJP but outside the party as well on specialized subjects. Besides the PM and Union Home minister Amit Shah, there is a possibility that party general secretary and in-charge of BJP training cell Muralidhar Rao might also address it. All the MPs have been asked to attend this meeting without a miss. Actually the BJP wants to pull string on some of motor mouths in the party by telling them how to speak saving the party from any unnecessary controversy and embarrassment due to some of its own leaders.

Sources further informed that this is a hectic meeting that would start at 9 am and would finish at 9 pm. MPs will get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the venue itself. Training cell of the BJP has major role to play in it as it is continuously doing the same but at smaller level. It will take up many issues including etiquette and how to deal with media which is a major concern of the party.

Sources are not ready to divulge any further detail about the programme but the purpose of the entire exercise is to ensure that certain basic things are required for a MP, minister and people having organizational responsibilities.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too keeps on doing such training camps for its workers but this would be the first such event when all BJP MPs will be participating in such a mega event that is dubbed as (Abhyas Varg).

Denting the govt’s image: B L Santosh asked to rein in motor mouths

By IndianMandarins 23 Jul 2019

Bhopal Lok Sabha Member of Parliament Pragya Singh Thakur has the habit of courting controversy even the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had expressed his anger and warned her for her statement calling Nathuram Godse a patriot. But this time round her statement saying that she is not here to get drains of the city cleaned has also not gone down well and she got a proper dressing-down from the newly appointed national general secretary (organisation) of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) B L Santosh.

Not only Prime Minister Narendra Modi but party president Amit Shah is unhappy with such occurrings. Shah clearly instructed Santosh to deal with such kind of motor mouths in the party as sometimes it requires lots of human energy of the party in defending these issues without any benefit to anyone rather denting the image of the party and the government. The party wants to give message to others also by taking Pragya Singh Thakur to the task. Moreover, the political purpose of bringing her to party is over as the party just wanted to give a message that it is against the narrative of saffron terrorism. So that message is very well sent across and there is no utility of her if she goes on like this.

Party insiders informed that when Pragya Singh Thakur tried to explain her case to Santosh that why did she make such a statement but she was even more severely reprimanded by being told that now she represents people of Bhopal and holds constitutional obligation. So every word from people’s representative should be spoken very cautiously.

Sources said that actually such statements are casting shadow on the image of   the government also making the PM jittery. Santosh has been clearly instructed to rein in such leaders. There are a few more who will be told to remain cautious while speaking in public.

RSS short-listing 1000 young pracharaks: Reshuffle of 'Prant-paracharaks' likely

By IndianMandarins 19 Jul 2019

New Delhi: In its attempt to make generation shift, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is looking for around 1000 young pracharaks to work for the organization across the country. The organization has not only sought names but also started working on them.

 

Sources said that certain conditions have been laid for these pracharaks like they should be between 30 and 40 years of age and must be dynamic in every sense. Besides these 1000 pracharaks, the RSS is also planning to replace some of its state organizing secretaries and 'Prant-pracharak' to make working of the organization even better.

 

Sources said that the RSS wants such 'Prant-pracharak' to the service who are able to move swiftly as the responsibility requires more dynamism. Some of the RSS leaders at the top are physically unfit to take up the responsibility. The RSS has taken back Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary (organizations) Ram Lal in the outreach department of the organization.

 

There are many regions in the country where the RSS feels that there are immense possibilities of its expansion and not only possibility but also the need to reach out to people of the area. So all these decisions were taken in its recent meeting in Vijayawada and the organization started working in the same directions.

 

If sources are to be believed then the organization has already working on the name and some names have already reached. They will be scrutinized and then these selected pracharaks will be sent to particular areas where the RSS wants to send them.
