KANPUR: By placing a Dalit candidate for the presidential elections, the ruling party has once again pushed the Bahujan Samaj Party to support its capable and trusted candidate. The political maturity of the BJP is reflective by this timely choice. The ruling party is well aware of the fact that the significance of the Dalit votes have definitely not waned altogether. The Very choice of the Dalit presidential candidate has also proved this vital point. Although the ruling party has shown its proclivity towards consensus candidate yet this idea is supposed to have somewhere spoiled in the process.
Whatever it may be, the political breeze is madly blowing in the full favour of the BJP’s way. In the last assembly elections, the AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal proved summer wind for the Punjab CM Amarinder Singh and BSP leader Mayawati was more or less established herself as a dead horse. Her party was the biggest loser in elections which had been established with the positive aim of uniting the Dalits. However, the previous polls brought one important fact and it was the wholehearted people’s support to the saffron party. The BSP’s high hopes were continuously going down and the saffron brigade was marching ahead with gainful results.
The blue brigade, one year elder to the saffron BJP, got the better of massive defeats under Modi’s accepted hands thereby challenging Kanshi Ram’s concept of trusted social engineering. The BJP has made BSP a bull in a china shop. Mayawati’s very close aides had resigned from the party. They left no stones unturned in exposing overtly or covertly inexactness which was seeped into the party. Her image would have affected by their direct hits. At least the state of Uttar Pradesh is no longer her trusted political field. The elephant seems to be gasping for air in the race for the political supremacy.
