And we thought that a new BJP President will come to fill the biggest void created by ‘The Hulk’ (Gadkari) but so called hardliners like RSS always have their way in Country Politics. As always RSS pushed The Hulk’s name and BJP had to comply. Anyway BJP was short of options, as they have been from last 8 Years. Speaking about The Hulk, he is not a routine vociferous fellow who bashes everything which comes from opposition. He has a keen shrewdness and has been in politics since 1976, when we all were in our nappies. The Hulk was an early starter; at the age of 21 he started his political career from ABVP, which has recently lost elections in DU.
Once Hulk joined the main foray there was no turning back. He actively participated in all kinds of roles given to him with time, be it ABVP Secretary, Cabinet Minister in PWD or Presiding the BJP Maharashtra State unit at the age of 47. If you look closely at the career path of ‘The Hulk’ then you cannot dismiss the fact that he has been a climber. In spite of his size he moved forward in leadership. There must be something in him that compelled both BJP and RSS to make amendment to party’s constitution, and to reelect him as Party President.
Since The Hulk is already christened as President of diminishing BJP, his principal agenda should be, to spearhead the campaign against Congress. Pardon me if am wrong, as I am not that upbeat on politics, but I have not watched anyone being smashed by The Hulk. Blame it on his astuteness or inertia, but am not able to get the hidden agenda, or the meticulous plan, which Hulk has envisioned for upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.
Over the eight year period of Congress rule never, yes NEVER, BJP was able to oust Congress in anything. A nation which strives on issues, scams are true fodder for an opposition to disintegrate the ruling party. Speak about the CWG, 2G, Coalgate etc, in everything BJP has missed chances to uproot the current government. It clearly shows that there are gaps in higher leadership. I would have expected ‘The Hulk’ to actively participate in such uprooting, and to give a clear set of instruction to his party members. Leave about opposing the current Government ‘The Hulk’ has not even taken credit for the BJP governance. People don’t know the total number of states where BJP is ruling. Leave Gujrat state, everyone knows what Gujrat is, because of Charismatic personality of Modi and his active participation in media. Just for the sake of readers I will put it here, that BJP is ruling in six states and shares power in four other states.
The previous defeat in Lok Sabha can be blamed to Rajnath Singh and Lal Krishna Advani, but the 2014 defeat will be christened solely to ‘The Hulk’. Only once BJP has shown some true mettle, and that was when they disrupted the current monsoon session of the parliament because of coal-gate. Then also they were criticized both by pro BJP and non-BJP people for wastage of tax payer’s exchequer. Understanding the pulse and catching the nerve of people is what ‘Hulk’, and his party has to understand. Show some resilience and mark my words you will be back in the Game.
In my previous blog I have mentioned, that in 2008 polls it was not Congress win but lack of stability which pushed Congress back in the driving seat. Kejriwal has mentioned it multiple times that BJP is ‘B’ Team of Congress. Tell me Mr. Hulk if there is already an A Team then why people will go for B Team. People are desperately waiting for that time when BJP used to be the main opposition. 2014 is upfront and India desperately needs an opposition. Not only an opposition but a dignified opposition, that speaks sense, and corners the archaic Gandhian Government. Just wishing if only ‘The Hulk’ could muster all his anger and channelize it in to the dying veins of the organization called BJP.
And yes my wife just told me that 'The Hulk' sued Congress’s Alsatian (Digvijay Singh) for some remark of his. Well, that means he takes the Alsatian seriously. Sad.
