BJP To Use 2014 Strategy for 2024 Lok Sabha Polls?

The saffron party Bharatiya Janata Party recorded a historic win in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and repeated the same in the next polls. In the second-term elections, the BJP emerged victorious despite heavy anti-sentiment due to various issues. Now the criticism towards the party has grown massively.

Using the central agencies CBI, ED, and IT to counter the opponents allegedly and toppling the governments to come to power brought big criticism. Even the friendly parties of the saffron party openly called out the leadership for the controversial decisions and schemes.

All these factors hinted that the Bharatiya Janata Party might pick a new Prime Minister's face for the next Lok Sabha polls as the opposition parties are coming together to bring down the BJP government at the center. Chief Ministers of Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and West Bengal are against BJP and they are ready to take on the saffron party.

Now Union Home Minister Amit Shah cleared the airs on the next polls. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the PM's face of the party and the BJP and Janata Dal (United) would contest the polls together. Amit Shah said this at the joint national executive meeting.

It looks like the BJP wants to use the same strategy it used for the 2014 and 2018 polls for the next polls. In both elections, the saffron party banked highly on Modi's charisma. Despite criticism, BJP made a certain vote bank and that is helping the party. Moreover, the party has no leaders who have national acceptancy like Modi.
