[ad_1]

It is clearly visible that the Congress, which has been continuously losing elections to the BJP, has now made a plan to defeat the BJP by playing on its Hindutva pitch and this year’s assembly elections to be held in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh is a part of the Congress’s strategy. Can be considered as a test case.

Undivided Madhya Pradesh is generally considered to be the Hindutva laboratory of the BJP. But now the Congress is trying to make Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh carved out of it a laboratory of its soft Hindutva. Bhupesh Baghel, who became the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh with the blessings of the Gandhi family after the Congress won the assembly elections in 2018, realized very soon that if Chhattisgarh has to run the government smoothly, it will have to follow the path of Hindutva and after that people saw How Baghel started snatching issues related to Hindutva from the state BJP one by one.

For the assembly elections to be held in Chhattisgarh in 2023, there is a competition between the BJP and the Congress to do Hindutva politics. This time both the parties are campaigning by making Hindutva an issue. There is a competition between both the parties as to which party comes forward in the politics of Hindutva. From the Gobar Yojana, to the Ram Van Gaman Circuit, Ramayana competition, Hanuman Chalisa recitation and the Godhan Nyaya Yojana, the Congress government in Chhattisgarh is trying hard and relentlessly to woo the Hindu voters of the state by making announcements and projects.

Kamal Nath, who won the elections in Madhya Pradesh in 2018 and became the Chief Minister with the blessings of the Gandhi family, was soon removed from the chair by the BJP with the help of Jyotiraditya Scindia’s rebellion and made his Shivraj Singh Chouhan the Chief Minister of the state again. The touring duo of Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh soon realized the importance of Hindutva politics and after that Congress decided to follow Hindutva politics in Madhya Pradesh as well. Only after this, Kamal Nath, who is currently seen as the biggest and only contender for the post of Chief Minister in Congress, started publicly sharing his worship pictures, merged Bajrang Sena with Congress and the most important thing is that farmers, unemployed Kamal Nath, who surrounded the Shivraj government on all issues including strikes and tribals, is trying to give a special message to the Hindu voters by raising the issue of Giri Dev idols in Ujjain’s Mahakal very loudly and prominently.

Even Priyanka Gandhi, who reached Madhya Pradesh to launch her election campaign in the state, made her intentions completely clear by first worshiping Maa Narmada and performing aarti. Priyanka Gandhi accused the BJP government of several scams, including Vyapam scam, teacher recruitment scam, police recruitment scam, mining scam and e-tender, and went so far as to say that the BJP government has done the work of Maa Narmada and Mahadev in scams. Didn’t even leave the Mahakal corridor.

It is clearly visible that the Congress, which has been continuously losing elections to the BJP, has now made a plan to defeat the BJP by playing on its Hindutva pitch and this year’s assembly elections to be held in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh is a part of the Congress’s strategy. Can be considered as a test case. If this strategy of Congress is successful in these two states, then in the coming days we will see that even in the Lok Sabha elections, Congress will once again be seen trying to return to its old era of soft Hindutva, because one of the leaders in Congress The larger group believes that if the Congress is seen defeating the BJP on the strength of Hindu votes, then the minority voters, especially the Muslim voters, will also return to the Congress fold and if this happens, the seats of the Congress will increase not only in the Lok Sabha but also in the opposition parties. The acceptability of Congress especially Rahul Gandhi will also increase.
