Shah wrote in the book “Modi @ 20 Dreams Meet Delivery”, published by Rupa Publications and will be launched on May 11, saying that such “easy and insincere production of national leaders” was shown as it was after Modi led BJP to his biggest Lok Sabha victory in 2014 before repeating the feat by a bigger margin in 2019.
Shah, who has been the prime minister’s secretary for more than three decades, wrote that the best teacher for leaders is “to travel to ordinary places, meet ordinary families, share ordinary experiences and do all this in the usual way.
“Narendra Modi has done so with more frequency and perseverance than any politician in the last 75 years,” he said, adding that before the 2014 and 2019 elections, “there was no hope for a mandate; and no commission that was simply a reward for proven success. ”
He noted that no party had gained a majority in Lok Sabha from 1984 to 2014, saying that parties and prime ministers had gained a majority between 1952 and 1984 on the basis of the Goodwill Movement’s goodwill, family heritage, anger against incumbent President (1977). a mix of fear and sympathy (1984) with atonement, class prejudice, the activation of the voting bank and empty slogans such as ‘Garibi Hatao’ from 1971.
Everyone now acknowledges that opinion polls in 2014 marked the most decisive change in the history of Indian politics, Shah wrote.
Seeing Modi’s appeal as a major factor in the BJP’s victory in the state polls, including the recent phase of five parliamentary elections, he said the prime minister embraced state campaigns, issues and sayings.
“He’s not just a supplement, or a mascot, flown in for a few events and meetings. He adds to the deep understanding of local government and concerns that BJP units and leaders bring to the table. This is very different from what is intended. National leaders of others “They are flying guests with no sense of reality,” said the interior minister.
Modi then has the “precious gift” of personal connection to each state and region, he added, noting that one must go back to the years before 2001 to understand it and his “tireless Bharat Yatra in that period with a watchful eye, listening. ear and open mind. “” This tapasya was his university in real life.
The Prime Minister’s experience is his intellectual foundation, which gives him an enormous understanding of the country as a national leader from below, rather than from above and below, forced from above and a Delhi-centric, national leader, Shah said.
Modi’s actions as prime minister to distribute cooking cylinders among households and build toilets as part of the Swachh Bharat mission stemmed from this understanding, he added.
His full involvement in the party and his commitment to its growth have not diminished only since he took over as chief executive officer, Shah said, adding that he had not sacrificed party interests for tactical gain in government but in fact regarded them as cohabiting.
It was Modi who advised him to use technology and launch a BJP membership campaign on the basis of an unanswered phone call, Shah said, referring to the prime minister’s proposals when he, as party chairman at the time, approached him about the 2015 exercise.
Modi’s immediate response was that if the party did so in an old-fashioned way, it would serve no purpose as it would “easily and lazily” register more and more members from areas where it was already strong, Shah said.
The idea of a missed call was part of a strategy to reach silent BJP supporters who were attracted to the party but did not know how to physically communicate with its members and sign up, he said.
“In terms of membership, the BJP campaign made it the largest party in any democracy. It encouraged our expansion into areas and communities that had hitherto been more difficult to reach,” he wrote.
The Minister of the Interior concluded his chapter “Democracy, delivery and the politics of hope” in the book with a statement that Modi was far from finished. “The decade has just begun. “Watch where it takes Narendra Modi, where Modi takes BJP, and where BJP and Modi take India,” he said.
‘Modi @ 20’ is a collection edited and compiled by the BlueKraft Digital Foundation, and is a compilation of the author’s chapters by renowned intellectuals and domain experts, Rupa Publications has said, adding that it seeks a final and comprehensive exploration of Gujarat’s fundamental transformation. and India over the last 20 years due to the “unique Modi governance model”.
