Defaming Yogi


Recent repercussions of the Uttar Pradesh elections have made the condition of the BJP as though silence has set foot into the once cheerful party. But there lay many unanswered questions.

Trusted sources say that before the bypolls, BJPs top leadership was already tipped by an intelligence report that the political scenario may switch courts in Gorakhpur, yet neither of the BJP’s top men – Modi and Shah – bother to campaign in the region prior to the polls. In a way, they assumed that the victory or defeat in Gorakhpur lies with Yogi’s political influence and power. In any case Yogi is well renowned for his differential political tactics.

However, these days, he was conducting the honor of a disciplined soldier of the BJP. At the same time, the BJP top leadership was somehow busy favouring its low-profile chief ministers like Manohar Lal Khattar, Raghubar Das, Trivendra Rawat. There are also questions revolving around the role of the RSS in these by-elections of UP as to whether the RSS does not accept Yogi as its suitable representative. Otherwise, what was the reason that before the elections, when Dattatreya Hosabale had reached Lucknow before the by polls, he called upon the RSS cadets, in the presence of Yogi and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya, to concentrate on the preparations for the 2019 elections, more than the state by polls. In this meeting, UP BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey

and in-charge Sunil Bansal were also present.
