BJPs double jeopardy: RSS lambasts it for not towing aggressive Hinduvta line

Just a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was decimated in the just concluded Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, there is another bad news for the party. This time from its ideological parent organization Rashtriya Swayemsevak Sangh (RSS) which has lambasted the party for not towing the aggressive Hinduvta plank during its poll campaign.

New Delhi, May 12 : Just a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was decimated in the just concluded Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, there is another bad news for the party. This time from its ideological parent organization Rashtriya Swayemsevak Sangh (RSS) which has lambasted the party for not towing the 'aggressive' Hinduvta plank during its poll campaign.

In its mouthpiece 'Organiser', RSS has blamed the 'half-hearted' approach of the BJP leaders to pursue a tough Hinduvta line for the poll debacle that saw the party barely managing to secure 50 assembly seats out of the total 402 seats; the party's lowest tally since 1991.

"Issues like building a Ram Temple was in the background. An aggressive Hindutva approach would have ensured greater success. But the party was extremely restrained," the article stated.

However, the RSS has refrained from castigating both-BJP president Rajnath Singh and party's chief ministerial candidate for the State Kalyan Singh Kalvi- but has in fact praised them.

RSS' main antagonism mainly is focused on some State leaders for not taking adequate cooperation form RSS cadres in the State to spread the 'aggressive Hinduvta' ideology and some national leaders who have stated that Hinduvta has not been party's agenda in the election.

The article blames the party for failing to understand Bahujan Samaj Party's (BSP) Hindu social engineering that led Mayawati to secure a simple majority in the State for the first time in the last 14 years, ending the coalition era.

The RSS has praised the BSP for crafting a unique social engineering in the Hindu society by taking away large chunks of upper-caste votes and also roping in some section of Other Backward Castes (OBCs) and non-Jatav Dalit support.

"Of course, she did not play the Hindu card. But like Indira Gandhi, on an altogether different format in the eighties, Mayawati subtly advanced a soft Hindutva line," the article stated.
