Bric a Brac : Haryana election under Khattar’s leadership

Detractors baffled by events

haryana-khattar-election
MANOHAR Lal Khattar’s government in Haryana celebrated 1,000 days of the BJP rule recently. It’s a big achievement for both the Chief Minister and party. The latter earlier played a supporting role–akin to be being a political crutch–to other parties. This time it formed the government not only on its own, but with complete control. Politics being politics, some of Khattar’s colleagues are amused with the functioning of the first-time CM. There are several state politicians who are working hard, and behind the scenes to dislodge him. One daring minister even approached Prime Minister Narendra Modi and explained that the Khattar regime was not performing as per the people’s expectations. The minister informed the Prime Minister that the way it was being run, the day was not far away when the BJP would be back to zero in the state. The PM apparently wasn’t amused to hear the report. He retorted that when he became Chief Minister of Gujarat for the first time, his detractors too made similar comments. But he went on to successfully rule the state for 12 years. He informed the minister that Khattar would, like him, learn the subtle and complex art of governance and complete his full term. To clear any ambiguities, Modi said, “Khattar and I have lived together in the same room. I know him well”. The PM knows how to endorse and communicate his ideas to the party’s cadre. When he toured Haryana, party president Amit Shah recently announced that the BJP would contest the 2019 assembly elections under the leadership of Manohar Lal Khattar. The detractors clearly have to find other ways to dislodge the CM.
