Bengal Politics has been changed with echoes of Jai Shri Ram. A big change in the politics of Bengal, where once there were the slogans of Lal Salaam, today there echoes of Jai Shri Ram.
Whatever the outcome of the West Bengal Assembly Election 2021 assembly election, Mamata Banerjee becomes the Chief Minister for the third time or the BJP or the Left Front-Congress-ISF’s United Front gets power, the important thing among them is that the BJP of Bengal Politics has been changed.
This change can be felt in cities as well as villages with Jai Shri Ram, Bharat Mata Ki Jai, and Vande Mataram’s Jayghosh. Even before the elections, the BJP has won its ideological battle to a large extent on Bang Bhoomi.
The saffron brigade has brought them into the mainstream of identity politics in Bengal by speaking of Muslim appeasement to polarization and granting citizenship to the Matua sect that came from Bangladesh.
Hinduism has been sharpened from Jayashreeram and Bharat Mata ki Jai and Vande Mataram.
Two important issues such as appeasement and identity politics through matuas have been entrusted to the BJP by Mamata Banerjee herself, which is well known to capitalize on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
At the same time, other BJP leaders from behind the scenes have been successful in creating an atmosphere among the people by repeatedly airing issues like infiltration and smuggling of cows from WhatsApp and Facebook campaigns.
The result of this is that from tea shops to TV screens, electoral and political debate and discussion are not possible without Hindu-Muslim polarization.
This is the reason that the physical identity of the people killed in the firing of central forces in Sheetalchi became public within a few minutes.
Therefore, a BJP leader did not hesitate to say that in the manner in which the vote-robbery and attack were attempted, not four, but eight people should have been killed.
This is how electoral machines work, sometimes loudly or sometimes silently.
By 2019, when Prime Minister Modi spoke in election meetings, his slogan used to be ‘silent lotus impression’ and now saying, ‘now and again the loud lotus impression’. Its implications and ideas need to be understood.
For the first time on the same land where Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the founder of the Jana Sangh was born.
The BJP has won to a great extent in the battle of ideology and in the race for power, by unleashing Congress and leftist views and influence from Congress Only the ruling Trinamool is standing in front of the Congress.
It would be ironic to say that the leftist parties which follow the policies, ideas, and ideals imported from abroad have flourished on the soil of Bengal, but the politics of Hindutva and indigenous thinking Jana Sangh were marginalized.
The BJP is the party whose foundation was laid by Shyama Prasad Mukherjee from the Bharatiya Jana Sangh.
It is only the cycle of time that the marginalized BJP is involved in the power race of Bengal today and the leftist parties, which run on the ideas – ideals, and policies imported from abroad, are fighting for the existence.
Bengal is turning once again. This was realized only in the 2019 general election. BJP had won 18 out of the total 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state and the vote share was 42 percent.
Has it all happened suddenly? This is a question that needs to go into the flashback to find the answer.
In 2017, the BJP’s national executive meeting was held in Odisha, just 10 days after addressing it, the then BJP national president Amit Shah had reached Bengal.
That too, from where Charu Mazumdar started the armed Naxalite movement in 1967. Amit Shah arrived in the Naxalbari area of North Bengal.
From there, the BJP’s expansion drive started in the entire country including Bengal. The goal was that people from top BJP leaders to lower-level workers have to go from house to house.
