Modi’s visit to SRCC has been organized by BJP as an attempt to display his popularity among the youth, his pro-development administration, tech-savvy approach and the ability to take quick decisions.
Reportedly, Modi has not yet made any concrete plans to visit Kumbh and Allahabad on February 7; however, if he does, it will be for strictly religious reasons. According to local BJP leaders in Allahabad, Modi is ‘very likely’ to visit Kumbh on February 7th. The dates coincide with Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s core committee meet.
“Let the BJP decide and evolve consensus on his name in the NDA,” a Congress official said.
It is evident that BJP chief ministers in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka do not fully count on Modi’s charisma to win elections. Moreover, his potential to attract votes in West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh is also very doubtful.
