Gujarat Elections 2022 | Modi’s Next Masterstroke? | Akash Banerjee
Finally, the election commission announced the
Gujarat election dates today. Some parties say that the EC's disengagement poll announcement for Himachal,
Gujarat gave the BJP an edge. Even if we put this angle of disengagement aside, it would be difficult for any party to challenge
Gujarat. That's what we are going to talk about in this episode... coup in
Gujarat SUBSCRIBE AND PRESS THE BELL ICON Voting on December 1 and 5 in
Gujarat and result on December 8 Who will win? The BJP has been in power in
Gujarat for 27 years... that is a long time and it will not be easy to reverse this trend.
Opposition to office and desire for change are common in a democracy, but in
Gujarat the scene looks completely different BJP believes its performance in
election will improve In 2017 election, Congress gave its best in 32 years securing 77 seats Cabinet ministers and top leaders had to campaign in
Gujarat and then This time it will be a trilateral contest in
Gujarat It is being said that Congress may not be able to turn favorable atmosphere into votes. Many have resigned from Congress and joined the AAP. Many claim that AAP is the biggest challenge for the BJP in
Gujarat, while Congress maintains that its control is solid.
Congress highlighted its Rajasthan model in
Gujarat while AAP promotes its Delhi BJP model has something both Congress and AAP lack The Center for the Study of Developing Societies conducted a survey in
Gujarat... Concerned by 2/3 said price gouging and unemployment (51% of voters said price gouging is the key issue) Price gouging is a big problem in
Gujarat 70% said financial problem is his main concern is not religious but financial issues A smart political party will make him raise this issue publicly which is a concern for BJP CSDS surveys in Goa, Punjab, UP and Uttarakhand show that price gouging was not the main concern of BJP The people desire for change in power is strong as there are other issues in
Gujarat such as: However 50% said Hindutva will be a major issue…here comes the coup..
Demean key issues like unemployment, price gouging and replace them with a sense of pride,
Gujarat model etc. It has been done before Congress failed to expose the
Gujarat model in 30 years... while people across the country still believe in the
Gujarat model BJP is aware that data and rankings will not change the outcome of the
elections... the focus will be on the feeling of pride, respect, etc. Whether visible or not, Hindutva is widely read in
Gujarat Not to forget 2
Modi masterpieces executed in the last 20 years The BJP also claims to have Muslim support in
Gujarat Maybe that is why the BJP won all 26
Gujarat seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha election the change in leadership tells people that the party is serious about governance in the state..at least they are testing the face of CM or not, it doesn't matter for the BJP How far can you reach the AAP in
They did not win Punjab on the first try Although Congress opted for a low profile campaign in
Gujarat, AAP is highly visible in the public eye People seeking change are supporting AAP which is what happened in Punjab In the
Modi language, Kejriwal has opened Revdi post in
Gujarat Now Amit Shah was seen inaugurating a school in
Gujarat.. however, AAP silence on some issues, opportunistic politics and BJP copying cannot be ignored . I don't know about the ideology of Congress, but people have definitely left the party in numbers. Congress has not been able to expound the
Gujarat model, and is now busy with the emerging AAP Congress called AAP 'BJP's B-team', so why not focus on the A-team?
It is true that AAP will secure more traditional votes in Congress. It is also true that Congress needs to get serious instead of just attacking AAP/BJP... people want to see their vision. Negative campaigning can backfire…remember Chowkidar chor hai? The Rajasthan model has positively helped the lower middle class and the poor... how will Congress successfully communicate this? Free generic drugs provided by 15,000 drug hubs by the Rajasthan government Will the people of
Gujarat be impressed with the Rajasthan model or the Delhi model? Or will BJP work its magic once again in the state? As of today, the BJP has the upper hand, but in politics, 1 month is a long time.
It is possible that the AAP and/or Congress make a quick change and the result of December 8 may surprise everyone. I was excited when the news of the election date broke. So, a little rundown of what you can expect. If you'd like more in-depth coverage, let me know in the comments. Please like and share this video too SUBSCRIBE AND PRESS THE BELL ICON
