NEW DELHI: Despite the favourable momentum gained by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Hindi heartland and beyond, following the consecration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged his Cabinet Ministers not to become complacent and to exert their best efforts for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

According to a report by Hindustan Times, PM Modi has cautioned his ministers against being swayed by armchair political analysis, emphasising that nothing is certain until the results are in. He reminded them of the elections in 2004, where the BJP leadership became complacent in the final stretch, leading to the Congress under Sonia Gandhi forming a government with a UPA alliance.

On Sunday, the Prime Minister addressed a gathering in Assam’s Guwahati after inaugurating and laying the foundation stone of projects worth Rs 11,599 crore. He remarked that the BJP government at the Centre is moving towards making the electricity bill of the households in the country zero, further strengthening his party’s position in the north-eastern states where the saffron party has already emerged as a big force.

While some BJP members have expressed confidence in achieving an unprecedented victory in 2024, Modi and his Home Minister Amit Shah have been focused on strategic alliances and meticulous planning. They have formed alliances with JD(U) in Bihar and established positive relations with BJD in Odisha, recognising the importance of coalition-building in securing electoral success.

Despite the Modi government’s accomplishments in areas such as economic growth and international diplomacy, the BJP recognises the importance of grassroots organising to ensure voter turnout. The opposition, though fragmented, is mobilising against the BJP, aiming to oust them from power.

Modi-Shah duo have directed party leaders to highlight the government’s achievements and connect with voters across demographics, from first-time voters to undecided voters.
