Even if there were no all guns blazing war of words between the political giant Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi during the no-confidence motion, their actions tried to position them as worthy contenders who could win the 2019 General Elections. Politics revolves around statements and attitudes. If our Prime Minister is known for his extensive foreign tours, Gandhi is now being widely discussed for his hugging feat in the Lok Sabha on last Friday. Confident and proud BJP members were continually criticising Rahul Gandhi for his impromptu bear hug act.
Modiji often drives every political party’s leaders crazy through his enormous political strength and the command he has over the country’s ordinary citizens. But Rahul Gandhi’s ‘spread love’ initiative makes every BJP politician wary of his simplistic moves to garner national sympathy.
Gandhi seems positive and hopeful and even stated that anyone can be PM candidature for the next general elections. Here, he was not speaking from a position of privilege but from his heart. His actions were meant to challenge the saffron party’s obvious supremacy inside the sturdy walls of the parliament.
Despite all the peculiarities and intricacies, both the leaders can sway people’s minds. If the BJP leader plans to lead with his oratory skills, the Congress president pays no heed to the ruling part’s discouragement. His political standing seems like Pakistan’s Imran Khan who was on the last brink of his political prestige but after the recent elections, will probably become the country’s Prime Minister.
Will Rahul Gandhi forge ahead like cricketer’s rise on political horizon? If the BJP has the persuasive wisdom of hearing from its parent organisation Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh, the Congress leader has the direct support of other regional parties to win in 2019.
