As Ram Mandir puts Back-Burner on "Vikas," the Yogi brand takes the 2019 Spotlight


Lucknow: Within 20 days – from Dussehr until recently – Ram mandir push dominated the political discourse with the leaders of the BJP, and RSS expressed concern over the construction of the Ayodhya Temple.

According to the diversion, the "Yogi brand" is also in the focus, since it is increasingly being held on the Hindutva agenda before the 2019 general elections.

All this began with the leader of Mohan Bhagwat RSS requesting the BJP to call for a law to build the temple in Dussehra's speech.
The question that needs to be answered is Ram Mandir, and it will not be Vikas's 2019 RSS Agenda.

It seems that BJP quickly re-emphasizes the disputed and controversial issue of Ram Church. And more than any other leader, this Yogi Adityanath, who became the expression of this shift in political discourse.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was often welcomed as a "Vikash Purush" as an admirer, did not listen to the temple question, Yogi Adityanath UP Prime Minister, who seems to take on the support of a strong political line in the Temple of Ram Temple in Ayodhha.

The question, then, is whether it is a matter of BJP-RSS or a political nature of UP CM, known for the Hindu Agenda at the end of the nineties, from Lok Sabha to Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.

Most BJP leaders refuse to talk about a very emotional and volatile topic, but political observers point to some interesting facts. One is that UP CM did not run away from the hardcore Hindutva image.

Secondly, despite the fact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not visit Ayodhha again, the Yogi Prime Minister offered him twice, twice but twice to offer the great Ram Lalla Temple at the venue.

Thirdly, unlike the Prime Minister, Yogi is a singer in the Ram Templar question. It meant that he said, "Bhagwan Ram himself will decide the date of the church's construction." Another time he said, "There is a Ram cemetery, there is a Ram temple, and there will be a great Ram temple of Ayodhya".

When questioned, UP or elsewhere Yogi sings on the subject and never emphasizes that the Ram Templar theme is close to its heart and wants it to be built as early as possible.

There is a great expectation of Yogi's next move when he visits Ayodhya again in Diwali.

"Yogi ji is not just a CM, but a saint, so in any case, something big will be in his mind." Let's wait for Diwali, "said Mahendra Nath Pandey, president of UP BJP.

According to sources close to the Prime Minister, the UP CM in Ayodhya can be the basis for a large Ram statue if everything goes well. Perhaps a statue that is anywhere between 150-200 m high.

It should be noted, however, that the UP government or its leader plays no role in any possible movement before the church. The Ram church's statute or legal route is located only in the Center. Yogi played a clear leadership in soliciting the affair and thus the hard lines within the BJP and Sangh parivars.

With the 2019 build, this is the "Brand Yogi" that is being exploited by the extension of parivar and BJP. This was on display when Yog was selected to accompany Chhattisgarh CM Raman singh, while the latter marked the mark.

At a larger political level, we can say that as the Modi government and the BJP are increasingly attacking the opposition, particularly between Congress and Rahul Gandhi, this deliberate shift moves towards the Ram temple question.

As the allegations of Vikas and good governance seem to revive following rumors and allegations about the Rafale business as CBI and RBI fight against government, will Ram Mandir and Hindutva become the converter?

If Ram Mandir is the most important agenda, then it is more important to rely on the Yogi brand on the cards. Although the internal dynamics of BJP and Sangh are worth paying attention to.
