Amit Shah Believes Coalition Era Might Be Coming To a Close
The second most popular politician in the BJP ranks and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah has attributed to the huge success of the BJP party in the Assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra to the popularity of Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India. Shah considers Modi to be on the top of the list of the most popular leaders of the country post-independence.
Everyone is aware of the huge influence that Amit Shah had in the BJP winning the Lok Sabha Elections in 2014. There are no doubts about his contribution towards the performance of BJP in Maharashtra and Haryana. He, like Modi, had campaigned length and breadth of Maharashtra to garner votes for the party.
Shah has said that he has fought elections like this always and attributes the victory of BJP in Maharashtra and Haryana to the efforts and canvassing of Modi. He said that the BJP was not in favor of breaking the alliance with Shiv Sena, but they wanted to contest in 127 seats and BJP did not take a liking to this offer. This is why they snapped ties with Sena and decided to go alone in the Maharashtra assembly elections.
Shah says that BJP and Prime Minister Modi believes in the politics of performance and this is the reason why BJP is winning in new states and regions where they have not shown good performance for so many years. He owes the recent poll results to Prime Minister’s unparalleled popularity, policies of the NDA government, fall of Congress reputation and the fanaticism and zest of BJP workers.
Shah deeply believes that the era of coalition might be coming to an end as India lacked an undisputed leader so far. Now, with the popularity of Narendra Modi scaling even greater heights, coalition politics might not be the way to move forward in Indian politics. Amit Shah also feels that there is no harm in having coalitions that is based on ideologies.
With Haryana under its belt and failing to get a majority by a few seats, the BJP is now looking forward to conquer newer frontiers like Bengal which is soon going to have Assembly elections.
