Despite opposition to the policies and programmes of the Centre, why it is that it is able to score the support of the people?
Is it just because people prefer Modi for his charismatic appeal and leadership by disapproving Rahul Gandhi? Partially, it can be said so but fundamentally this may not form the part of the answer which we look to address. Hindutva has become the leading light behind the politics, polemics and propaganda of Modi’s personalized politics. But how does it come to the rescue of Modi whenever he faces a challenge?
Well, it does for its uniqueness connecting and conducting the beliefs and views of the ordinary masses and individuals. If not, then why in their criticism of Modi do they harbour adoration for Hindutva? During the CAA/NRC protests, agitations spread across the capital. The RSS turned out to be successful in organizing and mobilizing those who weren’t sure of their position and sides. Ram Mandir, 370 are but some issues resonating in the minds and hearts of the common and ordinary masses.
