Wake Up Call for BJP

Has BJP taken voters of India for granted for helping them register a historic win in the 2014 elections? If yes, then here is another wake call for the Saffron party, which has lost quite a many by-polls across the nation in the last one year and is also on the verge of completely losing its credibility in Andhra Pradesh.

On Sunday, at least 40,000 farmers Maharashtra’s Nashik district have reached Mumbai after walking for about 180 km in the blazing sun over the last five days. The farmer contingent plans to gherao the Vidhan Sabha tomorrow alleging that the ruling party, BJP, has been ignoring their demands ever since forming the govt.

The farmers began their march on Tuesday evening with about 25,000 members and their number swelled along the way and reached over 40,000 on the fifth day. It indicates that the movement is getting support of farmers across the state and becoming intense.

Political analysts say that BJP should take the growing resentment among people from Maharashtra, AP and some other parts of the country seriously and fulfill all the promises made during 2014 elections. They warn that BJP may otherwise face a shocking defeat in 2019 like Congress conceded in 2014.
