March 15, 2017: After the miraculous triumph of BJP in Uttar Pradesh, one thing is apparent – the ‘Modi effect’ is the unshakeable force in the nation. During his campaigning in the state, he voiced on the matters of grave concerns in the politically influenced state from pledging to alleviate the poor from poverty lines to coaxing a fight against corruption. The nation has now perceived what the Modi wave can do – the unprecedented victory swept away all the pre-eminent parties of the state.

Narendra Modi, today is bigger than his party and he needed no chief ministerial candidate to obtain votes from the local public. Even after having been completed three years of tenure ship nothing seems to wilt away the charisma of the Prime Minister among the local folks. This further guarantees an affirmative verdict in favor of Modi in the imminent 2019 elections. As far as the oppositions are concerned, they were neither here nor there in marking a firm ground for themselves. Congress, as a matter of fact, was pre-eminent in the state, or even for that matter has been the eternal serving party fighting since the time of independence but none of the shreds of evidence can make certain such a heightened unity in the party favor, as observed in the assembly election. Modi’s BJP took away the congress PRO Dalit constituency long back dropping congress empty handed and empty rhetoric.

The campaign for elections was commenced under the heat of demonetization and worries whether the BJP would be able to reiterate the stupendous performance in Lok sabha 2014 election where BJP and its allay Apna Dal won 73 of 80 seats. Nevertheless, Prime Minister’s ability to influence the mob is unquestionable. Also, not the forget Amit shah’s hard and detailed work to align with Modi’s vision. A cynical abuse of secularism under Akhilesh Yadav governance created discontentment among the proletariats. BJP saw this as a tactic to supersede the oppositions and engineered the master plan. BJP then distributed 35% ticket to Non-Yadav OBCs who felt alienated hitherto. The saffron surge has sprinkled to half of the 29 states of India and is indeed a new era of progressive development.

The momentous outcome of 2017 has ensured that the BJP nominee will sit in Rashtrapati Bhavan in the coming July when Pranab Mukherjee’s tenure terminates. The victories will also proliferate the BJP numbers in Rajya Sabha. The halted bills are expected to be passed out now with the majority.

The victory resonates the famous saying by Napoleon – A leader is a dealer in hope. He should not be imposed forcefully onto the masses. The poor are hoping to reap fruits from the agenda propagated by Modi in the elections campaigning. It is expected that the ‘Modi lehar’ does phenomenal changes to the poverty stricken state, a state where there is a dire need for economic development.

New Delhi, Sep 24: Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his recent ‘Mann Ki Baat’ show, memorialized ‘Khadi Movement’.  He urged the masses to promote khadi usage and take it forward as a movement. “I had earlier mentioned that Khadi was not a cloth but a movement which should be taken forward,” Modi said in the 36th edition of his monthly radio programme, “Mann Ki Baat”.

Stating that he has observed a surge in the people’s interest towards Khadi, the Prime Minister said that the sale of the fabric has also increased due to which the employment among poor people has seen a rise.

“We must work towards lighting lamps in the houses of people engaged in the Khadi industry this Diwali,” he said.

“The Khadi ashram in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi was defunct for the last 26 years, however, it has now been revived,” Modi added. (IANS)

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
