After winning the elections of the municipal corporations and councils including grabbing 14 mayoral seats out of total sixteen, giving two to Bahujan Samaj Party with Samajwadi Party and Congress securing a big zero in these current mayoral elections, the political morale of the saint turned politician, five term MP and the current chief minister are so high that he’d already declared the party’s victory as confirmed in the 2019 elections with prime minister Narendra Modi repeating for the second time. Political analysts say that the victory of the BJP in these local elections is primarily due to the excessive mobility, pro people actions and round the clock vigilance of the chief minister and his subordinates against the anti social and criminal elements of the state compounded with his religious and spiritual actions of celebrating the historic Deepawali while publically welcoming the cosmetic Lord Rama and Seeta in Ayodhya and assuring the people of the state on the construction of vexed Ram Temple issue, despite the matter being fully subjudiced.

In a way the prestrategic ploy of BJP and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to exploit the passions of the state electorates on majoritarianism as well as development played a crucial role in once more saffronising the entire environment of UP during this civic polls and the fact can be gauged from the reality that it won the municipal elections from religious cities like Ayodhya, Mathura, Varanasi etc with a resounding success compelling the BSP, SP and Congress reach at the brink of political disaster. The tremendously enhanced political morale of the chief minister Yogi after the saffron party’s incessant victories in the last national election winning more than 70 seats out of total eighty in the parliament from UP and thereafter badly defeating the ruling SP in the legislative elections thus coming to power with absolute majority and now winning the state’s municipal and mayoral polls with a resounding victory has led him confidently make the 2019 prediction in favour the BJP and PM Modi.

For Yogi it’s the victory of the pro people policies of prime minister Narendra Modi and for the political analysts it’s primarily the Yogi’s triumph who led no stone unturned to ensure that the staus quo of the victory is maintained. For Yogi Adityanath these results are a clear cut the indication of the unstoppable winning streak of BJP that will continue till 2019 and ensure the BJP’s re comeback at the centre with Narendra Modi as prime minister for the second succesive term.

However, there are also indications in the political circles that the way Yogi Adityanath is proving to be a charismatic leader of the BJP after Narendra Modi the time is not far that his leadership as a prominent Hindu leader within BJP is expeditiously gaining ground and achieving new heights of popularity that may perhaps be a reason of worry for those at the helm in party organisation and the union government. It therefore remains to be seen as to in what perspective the UP CM is assessed in the future, a valuable asset for the party organisation or something else. Is it true friends.

The humongous victory of the Bhartiya Janata Party in 14 out of 16 municipal mayoral elections and also the landslide victory in majority of the municipal councils under the leadership of the Uttar Pradesh Chief minister and a saffron robed saint turned politician Yogi Adityanath who represented Gorakhpur for five terms as an elected member of parliament in the Lok Sabha has made one thing unambiguos that even after the demonetisation and GST the Modi factor is still relevant in the Indian politics at grassroots of Uttar Pradesh and those at the lowest ebb of the society including the farming and trading community including the government servants and those in private jobs are happy and pleased with the leadership of Yogi Adityanath who is at the helm of the affairs in the largest state of the country for the last eighth month or so.

These election results with a resounding majority in the Ayodhya Faizabad municipal corporation also reflects clearly that the electorates are fully under the influence of saffron effect and the factor of majoriatarianism did played a pivotal role in voting in favourof BJP wedded to the cause of Ram Lala and subsequent construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya despitethe fact that the matter is still subjudiced. Though it is a known fact that the elections of municipal corporations and councils are usually fought on local issues of development but the way Uttar Pradesh Chief minister has made these elections a prestige issue and campaigned extensively through more than 136 public meetings and also assured the electorates on development plank apart from other significant issues it’s now absolutely clear that the voters at the ground level have for the second time reposed full fledged support to his leadership compounded with Modi charisma.

In a way the mandate in the UP municipal elections to BJP has been the mandate for development, law and order improvement and the dynamic and dashing leadership of PM Narendra Modi as well as the UP CM Yogi Adityanath. This victory therefore is bound to have a positive impact in the ensuing Gujarat elections going to poll on 9th and 14th December as well where the Bhartiya Janata Party has almost concentrated fully with more than fifty ministers and myriad number of national and regional leaders relentlessly campaigning to counter the ongoing influence and political jaggernaut of Nehru Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi, Patidar leader Hardik Patel, OBC and Dalit leaders Alpesh Thakur and Bhavesh Jignesh. The way the BJP has established its overwhelming majority in majority of the Uttar Pradesh Corporation and Council elections winning mayoral seats in 14 out of 16 municipal corporations and keeping the Congress at distant third with SP and BSP second and third clearly speaks of the fact that no single anti BJP opposition party can counter the latter in any election singularly till the entire opposition do not unite together forgetting their political and ideological differences.

This election result is definitely a dangerous signal for Congress and other UPA partners of the country for 2019 general elections. If the trend of pro BJP voting continues unabatedly in the same manner as are the results in the largest state of the country, UP then there is no doubt that the ruling party at the centre and Uttar Pradesh is all set to win the national elections of 2019 as well.

Keeping in view the incessant triumph of the BJP right from the elections of the various states starting from replacing Congress from its citadel in Assam to repeating in Rajasthan and Chattisgarh to badly defeating the ruling party SP and BSP from its strong political haven UP to Uttarakhand, again compelling the  Congress  to bite the dust and forming BJP governments in GOA and Manipur despite losing at the hands of its permanent bete noire Congress and finally the landslide victory in UP municipal elections it has now become absolutely clear that Narendra Modi’s streak to win has in no way lessened but has instead gained a further momentum making everyone shocked, astonished and surprised. If the victory streak still continues in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh as well where results are expected on 19th December it would almost be confirmed that 2019 will also be Modi’s way, repeating again the top slot for the second time in succession after his assuming the most important office of the the prime ministership of India, the world’s largest democracy in 2014 against all odds and heightened challenges. What’s your take on this friends?
