RSS Crutches for Modi’s Gujarat!


It seems the RashtriyaSwayamsevak Sangh (RSS)has decided to put its entire might behind the faltering might of Modi in the Gujarat state polls.

And that is largely due to the three Young Turks of Gujarat politics, Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakore and Jignesh Mevani, who are rocking the boats of Modi’s so-called Gujarat Model. Though the BJP mandarins are selling lemons of a ‘clean sweep’ by them in the coming polls, the fact remains that the Congress in the past few weeks has started a solid march back into the state. And the survey agencies that were a few weeks ago predicting a 12 per cent set behind for Congress vis-à-vis the BJP, are now giving the BJP a slim 6 per cent advantage. It may be recalled that of the three youthful anti-BJP leaders, Hardik Patel represents the highly aggrieved Patidar (Patel) community, while Alpesh Thakore (who has now joined the Congress) leads the OBC community and Jignesh Mevani is the leader of the Dalit community. History stands evidence to the fact that in Gujarat so far, elections have been lost or won only on two issues: caste and religion. We are well aware of Amit Shah’s past credentials in ‘social engineering’ of caste alchemy. However, the mother body RSS feels strongly that it will be the Hindutva card that will sell this time in Gujarat. It is reliably learnt that the RSS has asked 12 different allied organisations to unify the Hindu votes according to their castes and communities working in Gujarat.
