The BJP’s high-stakes Delhi gamble
The BJP launched PM Modi the other day into the Delhi campaign in order to resurrect its fast sinking hopes in the upcoming Delhi elections. The PM reverted back to the familiar themes that the BJP think-tank had effectively conjured up for the Lok Sabha elections to counter AAP – bhagoda, Naxalites, governance, dharna, etc.
This is an unusual step for the PM who has thusfar tried to remain above the fray, so to speak. Even when the loony fringe of the BJP has gone to town with a series of crazy proclamations, the PM has maintained a stony silence. But here he was, mudslinging in Delhi politics.
