The surprising and shocking results of the Gorakhpur and Phulpur parliament byelections have shaken the ruling BJP in the state as well as at the centre right from inside. It’s indeed a huge setback for the ruling BJP. This victory for the Bahujan Samajwadi Party backed SP candidates in both these seats considered to be the traditional strongholds of the saffron party earlier held for almost three decades by the UP CM Yogi Adityanath and the former state president and the present Deputy CM Maurya is an unambiguous indication that the saffron party’s popularity and the charisma of PM Modi and UP CM Yogi is on the downward slide with majority of the electorates, particularly those hailing from the minority sections, backward and down trodden classes, especially dalits are no more under the influence of saffronisation nor believing in their rhetorics of so called development and ache din repeatedly and forcefully being fed into their ears.

What seems to be the major worrisome factor for the BJP high Command after these two defeats is the fact that both these parliamentary constituencies were Saffron’s strongholds for several years and Yogi Adiyanath as well as Maurya are the incumbent CM and deputy CM of the largest state, which won 73 parliamentary seats and 325 assemblies in UP respectively during the previous national and state elections.

At the time when prime minister Narendra Modi’s charisma is at the peak compounded with Amit Shah’s outstanding organisational election winning skills, having incessantly won 21 states since 2014 putting Congress, BSP and SP including the left to immense quandry and of no where, these shameful defeats have made one thing absolutely crystal clear that all is not well for the ruling BJP lead NDA and in particular prime minister Modi.

While on the one hand the extremely popular saffron clad seer turned chief minister Yogi Adityanath is becoming more and more popular and people friendly by his, “eradicate criminalism and criminals,” from the crime infested state of UP, including making the government extremely people friendly by announcing several developmental projects and eradicating corruption, on the other hand his party’s two candidates’ loose badly against their immediate political rivals hailing from a party which was just a year ago uprooted from power in the state at the hustings.

Such downsliding trends definitely send a very wrong signal across the country for a party which is ruling at the centre as well as in 21 states of the country. In Bihar as well, out of the two results one of Jehanabad and Babua seat and the party(BJP) could make only in one seat whereas the RJD of Lalu Prasad Yadav retained its Jehanabad seat with a good margin THUS GIVING A STRAIGHT JOLT TO BJP- JDU ALLAINCE.

What makes the situation even more worse is the fact that the percentage of voting in both the parliamentary constituencies was below 40 to 45% and still the BJP lost whereas in usual cases lower percentage polling in considered to be favourable to the ruling party. This ambiguously speaks of the fact that majority of the Hindu voters have not come out for polls, clearly indicating that they were unhappy and disillusioned with the performance of the ruling party at the centre as well as the state.

However, the results also speak of the dooms day ahead for the Congress party, whose both the candidates in the Gorakhpur and Phulpur constituency even lost their security deposits similar to their zero performance in the recently concluded Tripura and Nagaland elections.

Conclusively, we can say that the results of these two byelections have made one thing absolutely unambiguous and transparent that unity of the non BJP opposition with SP and BSP as main and essential partners can put a strong and sizeable dent to the image, popularity and charisma of Narendra Modi at the national level as the minorities, dalits, backwards and the people of the backward strata of the society seem to have been totally disillusioned with them due to increasing unemployment, deteriorating agrarian sector, appaling condition of farmers and agricultural sector, sky rocketting prise rise of essential commodities, widening of gab between the haves and have nots and degenerating living standards of the rural and suburban populace of the country.

In short its the real time for full soul searching for both the BJP led NDA as well as the entire non BJP opposition of the country. What do you say friends?



The long pending issue of declaring Gairsain as the permanent capital of Uttarakhand has gained tremendous momentum with people of the state, especially the various anti BJP and anti Congress socio political organisations of the seventeen year old state witnessing series of demonstrations, hunger strikes and dharnas all over the state.

The current capital of Uttarakhand, Dehradun today witnessed a massive demonstration and a vociferous march with anti BJP government slogans from Gandhi Maidaan till Ghanta Ghar. The extremely furious pro Gairsain capital processionists holding playcardsand banners in their hands raising slogans deploring the government of the day and demanding declaration as the permanent capital of Uttarakhand converged at Ghanta ghar warning the BJP ruled state and central government for being prepared for the sevete and serious consequences in case they dose not declare Gairsain as the capital of Uttarakhand instead of Dehradun.

Extremely angered and annoyed all the processionists wanted Gairsain as capital at all costs who feel completely ditched by the both the Congress as well as the BJP governments who’d ruled this Himalayan state for the last seventeen and a half year but always betrayed the people despite promising the issue in their pre election menifestoes. The chief minister of the state was in Delhi a day ago to meet the central leaders and discuss this issue which has become the subject of tension for the current state government.

The demand for Gairsain which was being feebly raised earlier gained momentum recently from Rudraprayag and Gairsain the sparks of which later on engulfed the entire state. The young journalist Mohit Dimri and others has played a key role to gave it a special momentum and energy by holding protest meetings and demonstrations in Rudra prayag and the adjoining areas including mobilising the media, print, electronic and social networking sites.

Even the once defunct regional political party, the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal has became too active and is organising sit ins at district and block headquarters alongwith the general masses and the social organisations.

Today’s massive rally in Dehradun from Gandhi Maidaan to Ghanta ghar and burning of CM’s effigy has proved beyond doubt that the sparks of Gairsain issue has now assumed the shape of a widespread fire and the demand, if not met or fulfilled at the earliest mayresult in one more statewide massive movement against the present BJP government of Trivendra Singh Rawat.

The victory of Dalbir Bhandari for the prestigious post of the justice of the International Court of Justice in Hague by securing a resounding two thirds majority in the UN general assembly as well as the UN Security Council, compelling the British Member to withdraw from the race is a victory of the Indian diplomacy and as such the external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and the prime minister of the country Narendra Modi as thiswould be the first time that the important member of the UN Security Council Britain will not represent its nominee in the international judicial body.

Indian nominee Dalvir Bhandari has won for the second time after having been elected earlier in the year 2012. Election as the jurist in this international body is significant from the point of view of Indian citizen Kulbhushan Jadhav’s arrest and his subsequent capital sentence on the false, fabricated and concocted charges of espionage. Jadhav was sentence to death by the Pakistan’s military court but his sentence has for the time being with held by the International Court of Justice after India took this sensitive matter to the world body. Therefore from the point of view of India’s international prestige as well as to safeguard Kulbhushan Jadhav from.the death gallows election of Dalvir Bhandari in this world body as a judge was a great inevitability and India finally made it.

The external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and the MEA has contributed tremendously in canvassing support for Bhandari. It is learnt that the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj had personally contacted her counterparts in sixty countries of the world and our ambassadors and High Commisioners deployed in various countries convinced their conter parts to vote for the Indian candidate and it ultimately paid. However, on the contrary Pakistan which is neither in UNSC nor has its candidate as a contestent took hell of an interest to ensure that Dalveer Bhandari is defeated. Sources say that Pakistan tried to use the Islamic card by approaching the Islamic country representatatives to lobby against theI dian contestent but failed badly as members of UN representing the Organisation of Islamic Countries gave a huge rebuff to Pakistan and majorly voted for Bhandari.

Conclusively, this victory of Indian nominee for the significant post of justice in the ICJ has elevated the image and prestige of India in the global scenerio as an emerging world leader and is in a way a huge slap 9n.the face of China and Pakistan who.always creaye deliberate and pre strategic hurdles on India’s way, come what may.It’s in a way a personal victory of Prime minister of India, Narendra Modi as well who’d been too mobile visiting several countries of the world trying to enhance India’s name and prestige.
