BJP Agenda Is Regression, Not Growth by Prabhakar Timble

BJP Agenda Is Regression, Not Growth by Prabhakar Timble

It is getting apparent and patent day by day that the ‘temple’ party which repositioned itself under the slogan of development and “sabka vikas” is moving backward and is gearing to take the Indian Hindus to the discriminatory, regressive and traditional past rather than an equitable, progressive and scientific future. The six months of political ‘parivartan’ made possible due to the pull of Hindu mobilisation by “hindutva” forces and the push provided by the emerging middle class putting the eggs of their aspirations in the Narendra Modi-led BJP incubator could end making both the social segments worse off than before.

The freedom-loving Indian Hindus and the beneficiaries of the guarantees provided by the Indian democracy could well be in the trap losing their freedom and creativity under the onslaught of the right-wing ‘hindutva’ brigade. Six months of the new dispensation have not brought new ideas on the table. On the other hand, India’s past is becoming the agenda of India’s future. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the saffronites are in a haste to convert their communal agenda into an action plan under the cover of development and nationalism
