Everything is not going as smooth for BJP and Modi in 2018 as the ruling party was expecting. While PM Modi was busy talking to Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu in Ahmedabad, Congress gave BJP the jolt of a lifetime. Congress announced that BJP’s and Congress star campaigner Rahul Gandhi won’t be campaigning for Congress in upcoming Rajasthan assembly election.
Soon after the announcement, BJP president Amit Shah chaired a high level meeting in Delhi party office. If sources to be believed, the meeting was all about Rajasthan assembly election strategy and the party is going to change is strategy entirely.
Faking News reporter tried to talk to BJP leaders and managed to speak to Amit Shah who said, “Rahul Ji has been a star performer for us in many elections be it Lok Sabha elections 2014 or UP Assembly elections 2017 every time he campaigned for Congress we got tons and tons of votes. Since I am busy with Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland elections, Yogi with Bengaluru and Mota bhai with his national duty, we left Rajasthan elections to Rahul Gandhi. But Congress gave us a spin by not letting him campaign in the Rajasthan elections. We will bounce back surely and look for some other strategy.”
Close aids of BJP are saying that BJP may back a Mani Shankar Aiyyer and Congress social media team to win Rajasthan elections. Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha said, “Party is preparing Rahul ji for 2019 elections. As we all know his new Hindu Avtaar is being loved by many. Rahul Ji went to Haridwar to learn Shastra, Ved, Shlokas and has completely transformed himself into an ideal Hindu man. We never thought that we will be able to give BJP a headache but we gave them in disguise by sending Rahul ji to Haridwar. This is Rahul Ji’s moral victory.”
Congress is banking upon the likes of Jignesh Mevani, Umar Khalid and some local leaders to campaign against BJP in Rajasthan. Big days ahead for both BJP and Congress as the road to 2019 elections is not as good as roads in MP. Let’s see who wins the Rajasthan election which will be held later this year.
