Ahmedabad, Aug 28: Amidst growing tensions of the approaching 2014 polls, Modi's calm demeanour gets calmer. When politicians do their best to lash others of the opposition, he remains focused and quiet. His only motto-Delhi and the party's mission to reach 272 plus for the elections.
It's not a bed of roses
Politics is not a bed of roses, especially for those who have been in the centre of controversies for years long. But the leader makes his place in the hearts and minds of people step-by-step.
And his baby steps begin with Jaipur this September on the 10th. Here he will address a gathering at the end of the Vasundhara Raje undertaken 'Suraaj Sankalp Yatra'. This will be followed by a rally at Rewari in Haryana on September 15 and the 'Hunkar' rally in Patna at the Gandhi Maidan on October 27.
Rajnath Singh's continuous claims that he is a popular leader might be considered bragging by many. But, a visit to the Hyderabad congregation on August 11 actually proves his charisma.
Given the popularity he earned there, the party has decided to arrange more rallies in the South. Precisely why, the Gujarat CM is likely to address a youth conference in Tamil Nadu on September 26. Though the venue and the time has not yet been confirms, one can already feel the electrified vibes emanating from among the youth.
Uttar Pradesh, which hosts the biggest number of Lok Sabha seats, will see Modi after October 31 only. Bihar, too, is on the cards though Chief Minister Nitish KUmar tried his best to keep him out of the state. Bihar is of special interest for the party because it has 40 seats in the Lok Sabha and its bitter fight with the former ally JD (U).
Rajnath said "the party will leave no stone unturned to improve its seats tally in Bihar and UP", underlining how important the two heartland states were for the party.
A poll-bound rally in Madhya Pradesh has also been scheduled. "No date for has been finalised as yet, but Modi's rally is definitely happening in the state," said Kailash Vijayvargiya, senior BJP leader in MP.
Any stones left unturned?
Absolutely not, the leader known for his acumen in developing Gujarat from the scrap, making it one of the most progressive industrial hubs, has not forgotten the farmers. With his Vibrant Gujarat Global Agriculture Summit in Gandhinagar between September 9 and 11, his charisma is likely to attract 3,000 farmers from different parts of the country.
Coming September 17, on Modi's Birthday, the party is planning a mass connect program to be launched on this day. "At least one lakh people will directly connect with Modiji through the social media," said a member of the social media cell. The party has also called for a united youth cell, which includes all units-SC, ST, OBC, kisans and other minorities.
The party's youth brigade is likely to begin a Jan Sampark Yatra on September 11, concluding on September 25. The main idea of the 'morcha' is to spread awareness on Swami Vivekananda and Sardar Patel, who have been considered the guiding force of Modi's campaign.
The party's decision to be 'devisive' and not 'decisive' is proved best by Modi's efforts to make space for himself in every inch of the country. No false promises, no high claims, he just shows results-in a united Gujarat.
