Modi Mania- Is BJP Planning to Rule India for Next 15 Years?

Modi and his team has hijacked three noted figures of Indian National Congress.They started with Mahatma Gandhi by starting Swatch Bharat Abhiyan from beginning till now,then started building Sardar Patel's tallest statue in world which he inaugurated on 31st October, 2018 and before that they fulfilled Neta ji Subhash Chandra Bose's dream by hoisting tricolor at Red Fort on the 75th anniversary day of Azad Hind Fauz,an Indian Contingent of which seed was sworn in by some other person than Neta Ji but he took the charge of it later.

The strategic designer and advisers of PM Modi are not only thoughtful but courageous to take risks in the way that it hits bulls eye and coverts it in winning votes. BJP in last one year has started showing its tough nationalist face after realizing that it has angered larger Muslim community on Triple Talaq and Mob Lynching issue.There is a cadre with in BJP which does not want to see even liberal Muslims getting close to BJP. The revival of Ram Mandir issue,Hyperbolic celebrations of Hindu festivals,RSS taking front seat in decision making and many other such issues indicates that BJP wants to return on tough Hindu Nationalist stand to garner and keep its large upper class vote bank intact which came out in large numbers to vote for BJP in 2014. BJP also realize that it may lose grip on vote bank of Muslims,Yadav and SC/ST and its only upper class which will come to rescue it how ever not much has been done for upper class rather most of Modi government's scheme are designed to fulfill wishes SC/ST,Poor,Downtrodden,Low Income Grades,Women and Rural India as is reflected in below table.

So, if we study 100 top schemes of Modi Government his vision of Sabka Saath,Sabka Vikas is well taken care off then what is the need of returning to Nationalist face of BJP with RSS in backdrop. All is well honorable Prime Minister but a section of experts believe that Modi and his advisers and his friend cum political strength Amit Shah is not only aiming at 2019 but beyond that and unlike Congress want to nourish the roots of BJP in such a way that by 2024 it becomes a strong tree for next 10 years.

Clearly on one side BJP's practical vision carries everyone along it but theoretically they want to show a tough Nationalist face with revival of issues such as Ram Mandir,Stand on international borders,giving remote to RSS on certain issues so the upper class vote bank also remain intact. This is such a clever dual policy that will keep BJP on a comfortable winning majority in 2019 and a full proof concrete plinth for years beyond 2019 .And there is a vision,labor,experience and strong will power of half a decade behind it.

Now let us see what Modi government and his ministers have given to nation in last four years and that is enough to prove my points.
