Prime Minister Narendra Modi has trounced a motley group of splintered Opposition or whatever in the name of Opposition. Entire nation rose to vote for development and prosperity alone in unison. I behold mainly two pillars of the grand victory on a solid foundation laid down by the greatest visionary of 19th century, Dr. KB Hedgewar in 1925 itself.
I must first address the issue as to why I address Dr. Hedgewar as the greatest visionary of 19th century. Concept of Hindu unity never existed anywhere in the country, anywhere in Sanatana scriptures or in Hindu-intellectualism of any variety anytime in past to the best of my knowledge. Hindus continued to be traumatised for centuries first by invaders then by our own people influenced by variety of ideologies smuggled into the country by invaders. As a young Congressman, Dr. Hedgewar was deeply disturbed to observe that nobody, absolutely nobody had even an inkling of inclination to worry about security of Hindus while they all rushed whenever non-Hindus were in slightest of trouble. He had lot of hopes from Congress in this regard which dashed soon and Dr. Hedgewar walked out of Congress in disgust. He resolved to constitute an organisation to address the issue in terms of human resource development, to raise a well-knit, well-organised vibrant community of Hindus imbued with Sanatana values and nationalism bang at the grass-root level. The organisation of RSS was founded in 1925 though it consumed almost 80 years to attain the critical mass, become a mighty voice to reckon with. Five generations of RSS have been cremated into ashes before a sense of Hindu-unity/nationalism could be seeded into Hindu minds.
Meanwhile Congress continued with their anti-Hindu/anti-national policies behind the subterfuge of secularism/unity in diversity/inclusivity concurrently plundering national wealth and stashing all that abroad.
Owing to human awakening activities of RSS, masses all over the nation started realising how were they being hoodwinked and fleeced hitherto on all fronts and they must gear up to reverse their destiny. This realisation is best exemplified by Smriti Irani who unravelled utter lack of development in VIP constituencies like Amethi lorded over by Nehru-Gandhi-Vadra Dynasty for decades. The exposure turned out to be so pathetic, so humiliating that it stunned the nation. Suddenly, the expose assumed national dimensions and people in the country realised, entire country was shabbily treated like Amethi / Raebareli for seven decades post 1947. Serial exposes climaxed by Smriti Irani in Amethi constitute one of the two important pillars of the historic mandate.
When Narendra Modi appeared on nation’s political horizon as Chief Minister of Gujarat and details of his outstanding performance began diffusing all around, people started yearning for replication of all that at national level. Overcoming all odds and entry-barriers raised by the malevolent contriving Opposition, he gathered absolute majority in Lok Sabha-2014 elections, after an interregnum of three decades for a political party. With the absolute majority so attained in Parliament, Narendra Modi went on a massive spree of development schemes to deliver social equity right in hands and palms of those who deserved it in every nook and corner of the nation irrespective of distance from New Delhi, entirely devoid of middlemen. In fact, he had transcended ‘Khan Market Gang’ and ‘Lutyens Looters’ right when he was Gujarat Chief Minister itself. Opposition consistently believed, the mandate was a fluke and persisted in raising high octane hue and cry on flimsy issues in the fond hope of voters pressing Congress button in EVMs unable to see the right button thick in dust kicked up like Lok Sabha-2004 elections. They failed to read between lines of PM Modi’s statements, “65% population of the country is below 35 years of age”, insinuating at the urgency of paradigm shift in national perspectives.
Opposition refused to heed to it, persisted with the adherence to the same old ‘Garibi Hatao’ mind-set and landed with disastrous electoral defeat. Unfortunately for them, Lok Sabha-2019 mandate turned out to be so decisive that they are now stunned and shaken to the core worried about their existence. It is this, thunderous nature of mandate that established beyond an iota of doubt, social equity was indeed delivered in right palms, crores of citizens started dreaming of prosperity, development as the sole objective of politics and politics with impeccable integrity is indeed, possible and attainable.
With those historic developments in the background, massive mandate of Lok Sabha-2019 was certainly inevitable. When social equity and development are genuinely assured, vices like Naxalism/Marxism/anti-nationalism gradually fade away into oblivion. This election is not only a harbinger of prosperity for all but also evolutionary transition into a new Bharata altogether whose forehead is smeared with sandalwood while head raised high in self-esteem, a redefined nation that blends Vedic wisdom with Robotics, ancient art and culture with newer horizons, every citizen as an embodiment of a composite nation, justice for all and appeasement for none.
For the Opposition, they do not appear to be talented enough to evolve loaded with a very heavy baggage of evil deeds. Nation now requires a sparkling bright brand new Opposition, possibly genuinely centrist in ideological disposition endowed with impeccable nationalism and unimpeachable integrity. That will be a watershed development in Bharatiya politics.
This mandate has already determined course of events for the nation for next five decades or so.
