Firebrand Bharatiya Janata Party leader Yogi Adityanth is not like any other leader. Unlike others, he did not go to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) or become a part of Sangh Parivar. But he became a strong leader and was promoted as the Chief Minister of the most populated state Uttar Pradesh.



His flamboyant image made wonders for the saffron party to the level that it won two consecutive terms in general elections. After around 35 years a party won back-to-back polls in Uttar Pradesh. His Bulldozer politics need a special mention here. He started the idea to bulldoze the structure of people who create law and order issues.

His Bulldozer idea was spread to other Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled states. Yet again the Bulldozer politics rocked the political world. The alleged statements made by a Cabinet Minister raised many eyeballs.

Madhya Pradesh Panchayat minister Mahendra Singh Sisodia created a big controversy after a video purportedly shows him asking the opposition party leaders to join the saffron party or else Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's bulldozer will do its work.

"Listen Congress members – join the BJP. Move towards this side slowly. In 2023 too, the BJP will form a government in MP. Mama's bulldozer is ready," the Cabinet Minister is said to have said at an event.

The saffron party Bharatiya Janata Party is facing criticism that it is poaching the MLAs from other parties by using various means like unleashing the central agencies or offering big positions.

But the comments of the Cabinet Minister raised new doubt on whether the Bharatiya Janata Party is using a bulldozer to poach MLAs. The ruling party member openly warned the opposition party leaders that the bulldozer is ready if they don't join the party.

Many ask if this is the new strategy of the Bharatiya Janata Party to take MLAs from other parties to its side. Taking MLAs to its side changed the political picture in a few states. In Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and others the governments changed and the Bharatiya Janata Party rose to power. Now the Congress leaders are alleging that BJP is using bulldozers openly.
