# More than 27 percent ministers in the Union Cabinet

The Modi government gave justice and respect to the backward classes by including 27 ministers from backward castes in its cabinet, more than 35 percent.

It is not that the Modi government has worked only for the backward. He also worked for Dalits, Adivasis and Pasmanda Muslims. In the Modi era, the country got a Dalit President and another tribal President. Pasmanda Muslims also took advantage of various government schemes. This government also gave 10 percent reservation for the upper castes. Despite this, the political challenge of Modi One and Modi Two governments has not diminished. His government was uprooted from one state after another. Except Jammu and Kashmir and Northeast.

This is because the one who unites nationalism and Hindutva by making a common civil code, he got only lollipops, but when BJP also got infected by the caste disease of reservation and promotion of Congress and regional parties and headlines like Muslim appeasement of Modi and Bhagwat Due to statements and silence of BJP-RSS leaders on harassment of certain Hindu activists or due to their administrative compulsions, when “committed Hindu activists” started running on neutral gear, the BJP itself which started giving slogans of party with difference started getting weak. In view of the strong political messages that have come from Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh first, and now from Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka, if the BJP does not warn, then its political struggle in 2024 will increase, not decrease.

If the BJP is a party with a difference, it should first of all make a sincere effort to remove those mischievous provisions of the Indian Constitution, which have been promoting the divide and rule principles of the British mentality. The concept of reservation and minority is just an example. There are many other things which New India does not need. She will remain in central power for 10 years, but when she could not establish public opinion towards the lofty public concerns of nationalism and Hindutva, could not show foresight to identify the constitutional evils weakening it and amend it, then she would be in power. What difference does it make whether or not. That’s why there is still 8 months time, BJP should frame a new constitution according to the dreams of New India, otherwise it and its issues will once again glorify the dustbin of history. Because Rahul Gandhi has once again started chanting secularism, due to which it was once termed as a political untouchable party.
