Catch-22 situation

rss to discuss bjp agenda

THESE days, it is learnt, the RSS is a concerned organisation. First, they fought to get the power and, after achieving it, the top leadership is worried. The BJP, its political wing, is not delivering the agenda as per the desired speed. January is going to be a decisive month for the BJP. The future of two top leaders—Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley—will have to be decided. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Bhaiya ji Joshi, Dattatreya Hosabale and Krishna Gopal, have to plan the BJP’s roadmap. Earlier, other RSS stalwarts like Suresh Soni and Indresh used to advise and their inputs were considered valuable but now they have been reportedly sidelined. There are many pending agendas which have to be implemented and ministers are helpless to implement in doing so. Sources say that the top leadership of the RSS is discussing the role of the BJP leadership in managing the nation. Earlier there was a discussion that Arun Jaitley be shifted to External Affairs but with the onslaught by Arvind Kejriwal, this appears to be a remote possibility. Basically, it’s a Catch-22 situation for the BJP and the RSS. In Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s regime, there was Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Jaswant Singh who were working as a team. In Modi’s regime, there is only Modi; the word ‘team’ has disappeared. The BJP’s ‘Margdarshak Mandal’ comprising Advani and Joshi is at loggerheads with the RSS. Advani is not even on talking terms with the RSS leadership, though Joshi still has some working relationship with the RSS. Modi has his own agenda in mind and is working like a bullet train. But some voices of dissent are growing louder in the party while others are waiting for the RSS hammer to strike.
