Ideological parent of Modi's party criticises poll campaign

Modi’s condemnation of the criticism for allegedly favoring India’s 200 million majority Muslims marked the election campaign. This was a radical change of pace as low voter turnout in the first stages of the process caused some to be concerned.

Modi denied saying he does n’t practice” Hindu-Muslim politics,” accusing him and the BJP of targeting Muslims to woo hardline Hindu voters.

Chandrachur Singh, who teaches politicians at Delhi’s Hindu College, said Bhagwat’s opinions were no aimed at Modi.

According to Singh, “it’s an effort to ensure that the political culture that underpins our parliamentary democracy does n’t become vitiated and that it operates on a healthy balance of ideas and perspectives.”

Bhagwat also spoke about Manipur, where at least 220 people have been killed and 60, 000 have been displaced in the last year due to fighting between the lot Meitei and minority Kuki societies over economic benefits.

Despite circling the nation holding demonstrations throughout the campaign, Modi has never traveled to the state where his group controls the local authorities. At the public vote, the BJP lost both political votes in Manipur.

” Manipur is still burning”, Bhagwat said. Who will pay attention to it, exactly? It is a responsibility to deal with it on focus”.
