BJP Union Ministers and our Hon’ble PM Modi have been working very hard to win any elections that are announced in India. Few months back, the entire BJP team descended in the city of Hyderabad to win the local municipal elections. Union Home Minister Amit Shah vowed to erase the city’s “Nizami culture” and turn it into a “Mini Bharat”.
No one has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi for addressing poll rallies while “ignoring his responsibilities” at the Centre. India saw its economy dip by 24% last year, we are reeling under the worst recession and economic downturn with highest unemployment rate.
Only in the state of Bengal, PM Modi was scheduled to address over 20 rallies and Amit Shah 50 in the poll season. Incidentally Shah is also responsible for Disaster Management, which has been tasked with controlling corona. In the last few months, Amit Shah has been focusing on elections in the state of Assam, West Bengal, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, his main task of controlling Covid has gone for toss. Have we elected them for poll campaigns or for improving governance and state of India?
Shouldn’t the central government focus on improving Indian economy and meeting all stakeholders to see how best we can recover. Sadly, the mantra for BJP is to cling to power at all costs, this is betrayal of public vote. The SC or EC should step in to define and draw a clear boundary between party and Union ministers. Party members are free to campaign; however, the first duty of union ministers is to their department.
Whatever happens to people, PM Modi doesn’t have to worry about a national vote until 2024. Is it the arrogance of have majority in Parliament or the ruling party is blind to people’s pain and deaths.
