Not Confident on ‘Modi Wave’?

Lodi-WaveWith just months to go for the assembly elections in Maharashtra, the BJP leaders seem to have no confidence on ‘Modi Wave’ which won them 23 out of 24 and to it’s alliance, 43 out of 48 Lok Sabha seats from Maharashtra. BJP leaders are openly coming up with their own strategies to make sure BJP won maximum number of seats in forthcoming elections. Here we are drafting their strategies and recent steps:

Nitin Gadkari
Gadkari-LeadUnion Minister Nitin Gadkari has asked BJP workers not to solely depend on the “Modi wave” for victory in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Maharashtra. While stressing that the “Modi wave” in the country is a fact, Mr. Gadkari, however, asked the party activists to “go back to the people at grass root level” to win their confidence and not ‘solely’ depend on it.

In public, he is not denying the wave and said, “Be confident of the Modi wave and his leadership. But do not just dream of coming to power in the state elections relying only on this factor. Work at grass root level to win the voters’ confidence.”

Although Gadkari has not said anything on the CM post, his supporters claim that he has talked about his desire to “develop Maharashtra in a big way”, a statement being read in the BJP as the Union minister’s interest in the post.

Pankaja Munde rely on ‘Sangharsh Yatra’ to vow OBC votes
Pankaja-LeadPankaja is all set to embark on a statewide tour from Thursday to drum up support for the saffron party. Pankaja’s ‘Sangharsh Yatra’ would pass through 21 districts and 79 constituencies. She will address 66 major rallies and 200 small rallies in the tour.

The party was yet to make up its mind on whether to field her for the Assembly polls or in the by-election from Beed, her father’s Lok Sabha constituency. The BJP, which has a large vote base among the OBCs, does not have a prominent backward class leader in the state after Munde died in a freak accident in Delhi in June.

Devendra Fadnavis
Devendra-LeadState BJP chief Devendra Fadnavis, who was seen as a frontrunner for the post, categorically said that the CM’s chair was still open and that its occupant would be from the Mahayuti. However, he had not revealed which party will take the CM’s post. “To attract youth the party will release the vision document and will create an app for them so that they can go through it and give their valuable feedback to the party,” said Fadnavis.

Vinod Tawde presenting himself as CM
Vinod-LeadVinod Tawde, the leader of opposition in the state Legislative Council is making different strategy and presenting himself as a CM candidate so that youth are attracted towards him and choose a young CM. He has been giving advertisements and putting up hoardings with only his image along with that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The ads do not feature the state BJP president Devendra Fadnavis or any other leader from Maharashtra. On this, source said, “Tawde is challenging Fadnavis for the chief minister’s post if the BJP gets adequate numbers in the state polls. Fadnavis, who enjoys a non-controversial image, has been careful not to be sucked into a confrontation with Tawde over the issue.”
However, Tawde does not appear to be the only one in the queue.

Gopal Shetty, MP from North Mumbai said, “Apart from being MP, we are working hard for the upcoming assembly elections. We are hoping the all the seats come to BJP Sena Alliance.”
