Bihar verdict a referendum on Modi: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: The BJP-led coalition’s defeat in Bihar was a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s working style, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday.

“The results are a referendum on the work and working style of Modi,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader told the media here.

He also said that the sweeping win by the ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and its allies RJD and Congress had shattered the “arrogance” and “self pride” of Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.

“The Bihar results have proved that people do not approve of the politics of hatred.

“An atmosphere of intolerance had enveloped the entire country. I am hopeful that all this will stop and the politics of affection will start.”

After congratulating his Bihar counterpart and JD-U leader Nitish Kumar on the “historic victory”, Kejriwal referred to the rising prices of food items.

“The people of this country want that Modi should stop touring foreign countries and work in India.”

Kejriwal, who has been having a running feud with the central government, had come out in support of Nitish Kumar ahead of and during the staggered Bihar election that ended on November 5.

Kejriwal, whose AAP routed the BJP in Delhi assembly elections in February, hoped the Bihar outcome would bring an end to the “illegal” and “unconstitutional” interference by the central government in Delhi.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
