BJP cadres in NaMo-PM chant, top leaders cautious

LK Advani -- the man who built BJP -- before ending his political career may spoil the party in Delhi

bjpGujarat Chief Minister ’s national ambition dangles between many ifs and buts. Political pundits believe that if there is one leader who could stand in the way of Modi’s projection as the prime ministerial candidate for 2016, it is Lal Krishna Advani, who remains a strong contender for the Prime Minister’s post in the party.  Once a mentor, Advani’s relationship with Modi has soured so much that reports of the older leader contemplating a shift out of Gujarat for the 2016 Lok Sabha elections — the 85-year-old leader is the Gandhinagar MP.  And to a large extent, Advani’s fall is linked to the rise of Modi.
Advani feared he would be marginalised from the Bharatiya Janata Party’s () policy and decision-making structures and processes once Modi is projected as the National Democratic Alliance's () PM-in waiting. As the Modi juggernaut moves on, it’s becoming clear that the dust it kicks up may engulf Advani. For cadres, Advani is as much a part of history as the tumultuous developments of the early nineties. Experts are view that in politics every leader has his time and Modi’s time has arrived.
Last week Advani made an ‘unsuccessful’ attempt to counter Modi’s clout. He overtly made a comparison between two party chief ministers that ended up projecting Madhya Pradesh leader  as worthier than Modi. The comparison between Chouhan and his Gujarat counterpart has re-energised Modi’s loyalists enough to demand an early resolution of the leadership issue. 

Maharajganj Lok Sabha bypolls verdict pushed him closer to the wall. The Bihar unit of the BJP has virtually demanded that Nitish Kumar should relinquish his reservations about Modi. The grassroots workers of the saffron party are unanimous on one thing:  if the BJP (NDA) projects Modi as prime ministerial candidate, the move will certainly catapult the party to power.
On May 6, BJP national general secretary Rajiv Pratap sent a clear signal that Modi is a bigger vote-catcher than Nitish. Rudy said that the Janata Dal (United) needs Modi as much as the BJP does. The senior BJP leader went on to add that the JD (U) leadership can take the opinion of its party workers on the issue.
The bypolls results of Gujarat, Bihar and West Bengal have one thing common. In none of these three states is Congress even remotely a contender.  Looking at the map of India, it is tough to locate a single major state where the Congress can say with confidence that it is certain to do well in 2016.
