instead it learns from it and bounces back with renewed strength The pointer here is to the shock-loss in Bihar which also led to a realisation perhaps that brand Modi had been overexposed back then and that local feedback is more important The learnings from Bihar were reflected in its sweep of Assam where crucial poll decisions were left to the local leadership in the person of Himanta Biswas Sarma The same can more or less be said about the recent triumphs in the Maharashtra and Odisha local bodies polls In Maharashtra it was Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis all the way As much as all of this is true the one undeniable factor that won Uttar Pradesh for the BJP is Brand Narendra Modi As this Firstpost article shows Modi certainly passed the demonetisation test in flying colours but it would be a limiting view to attribute the scale of the UP victory to just this factor At the risk of simplification the present victory owes to an unbeatable combination of these factors: Developing a comprehensive social fabric woven with the threads of development stragetic Hindutva and a spectrum that includes non-Yadavs non-Muslims and Dalits Deftly splitting the sizeable Muslim vote bank which perhaps for the first time was undecided whether to vote for the BSP (with 97 Muslim candidates) the SP or the Congress The undiminished personal capital of Narendra Modi as an incorruptible and hardworking Prime Minister interested only in India’s development Modi’s guarded address to the nation on 31 December 2016 on the impact of demonetisation indeed held clues that it was part of his Uttar Pradesh poll strategy In retrospect his caution back then has paid handsome dividends now The manner in which the BJP exploited the combined opposition’s tried and tired narrative: of doles and caste and communal goodies Or to quote Omar Abdullah again “Criticising the PM will only take us so far The voter needs to know there is an option available to them that has a clear +ve road map” As the results show the BJP’s decisive victories both in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have severely demoralised the opposition mainly the already-moribund Congress party As I noted in my piece on the recent Maharashtra polls the “rampant and frequent desertions will only escalate in pace and numbers as it faces a very real prospect of a huge drubbing awaiting it in Uttar Pradesh” While the said drubbing has occurred the reactions from key Congress leaders are along predicted lines Sandeep Dikshit son of Sheila Dikshit the Congress party’s UP Chief Ministerial candidate remarked acidly that the “Congress treats its leaders as commodities; it’s owned by a few people” But the worse is yet to come Between now and 2019 the Congress will face six elections in a straight contest with the Narendra Modi-led BJP And Karnataka being its only biggest remaining state shows promises of being doomed with former Congress CM SM Krishna and Vokkaliga heavyweight MH Ambareesh all set to join the BJP Equally one hopes perhaps in vain that the Congress party will learn at least now to desist from disrupting the Parliament With the BJP’s former opponents like Nitish Kumar slowly and tactically allying with it there will come a time when the Congress will truly be isolated and left with zero friends There’s also the possibility that even if the Congress offers a pre-poll alliance with other “secular” parties there’ll be no takers given how everybody from the DMK to CPI(M) to SP have been singed by its lethal handshake While it’s obvious that both the Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand victories have added enormous muscle to the BJP in the Rajya Sabha and will have a decisive impact in electing the next Vice President and the President there’s another more political side to it in the near future The astute political animal that Modi is he’ll look at these wins to further consolidate his party’s near-unchallenged dominance in India’s political landscape and as a precursor to the 2019 polls for which he’ll set more audacious goals In this light it’s not far-fetched to conceive that we could witness an electoral battle on the lines of Narendra Modi vs a Unified Opposition Follow the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election Live Written by Agencies | London | Published: December 15 2009 9:18 am Related News Scotish singing sensation Susan Boyle has been holding on to the number one position the UK albums chart with her ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ for a continuous third week now The 48-year-old singerwho shot to fame with a UK talent show has beat the likes of Lady Gaga and Take That to maintain the top position with her debut releasereported Mirror online Gaga’s ‘The Fame’ is on the second position and Black Eyed Peas have come fourth on the line-up this week The ‘Poker Face’ star climbed from number 12 to number two in the Official UK Albums Chart after an appearance on ‘X Factor’ which provided a sales boostthe Official UK Charts Company confirmed Boy band Westlife has taken the seventh position on the album chartfollowed by Take That and Rod Stewart HoweverGaga has reclaimed her position at the top in the UK Singles chart with ‘Bad Romance’and R&B singer Rihanna has come third on the list with her ‘Russian Roulette’ For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSupreme Court to decide on right to privacy but much more at stake | Reuters Fwire Reuters Jul 19 2017 12:09:40 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Published Date: Jul 19 2017 12:09 PM | Updated Date: Jul 19 2017 12:09 PM Tags : and quickly, download Indian Express App More Related NewsAdelaide: Leg-spinner Adam Zampa claimed three wickets to bowl Australia to victory and avoid a Twenty20 series wipeout against Sri Lanka in Adelaide on Wednesday.
