The meeting of the National Executive of the Bharatiya Janata Party will be held in Hyderabad from today, at which the party will brainstorm about its successes and shortcomings. Following the defeat of the Uddhav Thackeray government, there is an atmosphere of enthusiasm in the BJP to regain lost political ground in Maharashtra. After taking power at the center of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP is experimenting from time to time and after capturing North East India, it is now trying to establish its feet in South India. He is in power in Karnataka and now his eyes are on Telangana. In fact, there have been many changes in the BJP’s work style after Modi took the lead. The BJP has left its rivals far behind in power politics. The southern states of India occupy a prominent place on the BJP agenda after forming governments in several states one after the other and the party’s dream of forming a government in these states alone is very old. The BJP is now putting all its forces into Telangana, where elections are scheduled for the end of next year. His morale is high after achieving great success in the elections of the municipal megacorporation of Hyderabad.

The BJP has launched a contact campaign in all 119 constituencies of the state assembly to find out the chances of the party winning in Telangana at the executive meeting and has commissioned the task of measuring the pulse of the people. They are participating in the contact campaign in the constituencies of the assembly before the meeting and will gather information about the situation and establish direct communication with the public. In Telangana, BJP is trying to strengthen the organization again from 2020. When Union Home Secretary Amit Shah conducted a roadshow during the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections in 2020, he obtained a great public support. Not only that, the results of these elections shook the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the states. In 150 districts of the municipal corporation, TRS obtained 55, BJP 48 and the AIMIM of Asaduddin Owaisi gained 44 districts.

The BJP has decided to organize the demonstration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Hyderabad on July 3, the last day of the meeting, and with this he wants to add new dimensions to the campaign to bring the BJP to power in Telangana. It is speculated that TRS is preparing to hold early assembly elections in Telangana and the BJP wants to seize it as a better opportunity. Last time he had also tormented his rival parties by deciding to hold early assembly elections, in fact the opposition was unprepared for the election and TRS benefited.

Assembly elections are also scheduled in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh this year and the BJP’s challenge is to keep its strength there. The Congress party is continually weakening and the BJP is reaping its political benefits. Following history, regional parties were born out of the weakening of Congress and many of them have managed to maintain their influence. Now a long list of regional parties has also been made and recently the Aam Aadmi Party has emerged which is continuously expanding. After Delhi, he surprised everyone by recording a great victory in Punjab and now his eyes are set on Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

For the BJP, the Hyderabad meeting is an occasion to celebrate. The way he was successful in the recent elections to five state assemblies in four states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur reflects his fast-growing political circle. The way people trusted the dual-engine governments of Narendra Modi and Yogi Adityanath in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, seems to pave the way for the BJP to win the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. defeating his archirival Party Samajwadi in the recent by-elections in the seats of Rampur and Azamgarh Lok Sabha in Uttar Pradesh and seemed to be able to break the perception that it was difficult for him to win a constituency with a Muslim-Yadav vote. bench.

The whole world has appreciated the measures taken by the Modi government to prevent the epidemic during the Crown period. India developed the crown vaccine and strengthened the humanitarian part by supplying it to the needy countries. The truth is that this pandemic was a big challenge for the BJP and if it could not deal with it effectively, its entire organization could be in danger. Corona also damaged the economy all over the world and in this situation India could also be affected. The understanding with which the government imposed confinement and implemented the free rationing regime for the poor and transferred money directly to the accounts of the beneficiaries was not even imagined by their opponents.

Despite all these achievements of the BJP, the opposition does not want to miss any opportunity. For example, farmers besieged Delhi’s borders all year round for land reform laws and eventually the government had to withdraw it. The recently introduced Agneepath scheme for army recruitment has become a challenge for the BJP. The opposition has described the scheme as a hoax in the name of employment with young people and there have been incidents of protests and violence against it in many parts of the country, especially in northern India, which is worrying. The government is moving in the direction of implementing this scheme by eliminating the confusion of the youth. His clarifications and guarantees have stopped the protests but the opposition will leave no possibility of using it against the Modi government. It remains to be seen to what extent the opposition achieves its intentions.

The BJP has turned tribal party leader Draupadi Murmu into its presidential candidate, making the challenges facing opposition candidate and former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha extremely weak. The victory of Draupadi Murmu, who was the governor of Jharkhand, is considered safe and will benefit the BJP. Narendra Modi has begun to be included among the great leaders of the world. The BJP argues that India has benefited from its popular image. Through the Hyderabad meeting, the BJP can re-issue new guidelines to its workers for the expansion of the party.
