Modi’s achievements during his two terms as Prime Minister have been many. But the focus this time will be on major issues like revocation of special status for Jammu and Kashmir, passage of Triple Talaq Bill in the parliament, laying of the foundation for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, neutralizing terrorists both within and from across the borders and the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has seized the initiative and is leading the BJP campaign from the front. With the election schedule to be announced any day now the BJP has gone into an overdrive and Modi has asked party leaders and cadres to switch into the top gear. Complacency cannot be tolerated.

Led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, top leaders of the party are already touring different states to gauge the mood of the people and create a wave in favour of the party. A strong believer in the maxim ” early bird catches the worm” the Prime Minister is leaving nothing to chance.

The results of the recently held assembly elections in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh have given the party an ideal launching pad as far as preparations for the Lok Sabha elections are concerned. These elections were widely seen as the semi-final before the big battle in 2024. The BJP came out on top.

It’s not that other parties had not prepared for the semifinals with the kind of urgency shown by the BJP. Everyone tried hard because the stakes are high for them. The BJP was always a step ahead of them. It announced its candidates much before they did and fielded even some high-profile central leaders in the state-level battlefields.

The BJP leadership did everything possible to secure an emphatic victory because a win was a must. Besides, the elections were, for all practical purposes, Modi-centric. It was Prime Minister versus the Rest. He put his reputation on the line and came up trumps.

Modi, the dynamic, forward looking and “incorruptible” leader will be the focal point of BJP’s campaign in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections as well. The party will seek to highlight the achievements of his government at the Centre and it will also take on the opposition on the issue of making personal attacks against the Prime Minister which is like running a “negative campaign” to damage his image.

His achievements on the domestic front have been manifold and to the vast majority of people in this country he remains their “Hridaya Samrat” (the man who rules their hearts) and “Vikas Purush”. And he is also the global statesman whose leadership was much talked about at the highly successful G20 summit held in New Delhi about a month ago. With India leading the G20 currently the summit and other events connected with it gave India the opportunity to set the global agenda. Modi today is easily one the tallest leaders in the world.

Modi’s achievements during his two terms as Prime Minister have been many. But the focus this time will be on major issues like revocation of special status for Jammu and Kashmir, passage of Triple Talaq Bill in the parliament, laying of the foundation for the construction of  Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, neutralizing terrorists both within and from across the borders and the Citizenship (Amendment) Act that facilitates the grant of citizenship to non-Muslims from three neighbouring Muslim majority countries (Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh) on the ground of religious persecution. The rejuvenation of the country’s economy through massive investments in infrastructure development and schemes like Swachh Bharat which is actually a motto will also be talked about by the people when they discuss the achievements of the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Swachhata (cleanliness) and Atmnirvharata (self-reliance) are articles of faith for the Prime Minister who came up with the idea and slogan of Make in India during his first term in office. The emphasis of the Prime Minister was on indigenous manufacturing of articles that the country had been importing so far. Slogans like “Swachha Bharat” and “Atmnirbhar Bharat” have inspired both young and old in the country who now firmly believe the Prime Minister when he talks about ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas.’

To add to all this the Prime Minister enjoys the image of being a bold leader who sticks to his guns when he knows that the decisions taken by him are not only right but also in the interests of the country. A shining example of this was abrogating article 370 of the Constitution to strip Jammu & Kashmir of its special status.

Now he has taken another bold step by notifying the rules for the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). All this is being appreciated by the people.
