Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election Results 2017: With the Prime Minister Narendra Modi powered Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) set to ink one of the biggest wins ever in state elections history in the crucial state of Uttar Pradesh, maverick politician and senior party member and MP Subramanian Swamy has become the first in the party to dust out the saffron agenda on the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid issue today. What is noteworthy here is that other BJP leaders who are equally keen on Ram Mandir issue have refrained speaking up in deference to PM Modi’s development agenda that has won the party such a huge mandate in the biggest state in the country. As the counting of votes progresses at noon, the BJP is leading in a massive 309 seats with the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance in second place with 63 seats and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Pary (BSP) in third spot at 22 and this indicates that the saffron party is set to get an over 2/3rd majority.

Other BJP leaders who have commented today on the likely BJP win include the fiery party MP Yogi Adityanath and he had credited the win to PM Modi’s development agenda and nothing else. Others too had refrained from mouthing any narrow agenda. However, that did not stop Swamy from saying what was important for him. With victory certain in UP, taking to Twitter, Swamy posted this succinct message: ‘On March 21st I will go before SC and ask for early day to day hearing of the Ram Mandir case. I expect now UP govt will not oppose me.”

Clearly, he has suggested the way forward for the party over this controversial issue that has divided the Hindus and Muslims into two opposing camps for decades. Also, suggested is the fact that Swamy has not thought it expedient to give due credit to PM Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah for their immaculate startegy in winning UP from the Smajwadi Party and that too with such a huge mandate – he has stayed mum and has not commented on the BJP triumph as yet. The win has been credited to PM Modi’s highlighting and promoting the development agenda for the state and he has said that for him the only working principle is a non-discriminatory one of ‘Sabka Saath-Sabka Vikas’. PM has won people over from all castes communities and even religion (his promotion of the triple talaq issue and demanding reform in it has reportedly made young Muslim women vote for the BJP in massive numbers). PM has said he will bring peace, law and order and prosperity to UP through economic reform and he has reaped the windfall thereby caused.

Also watch: 

Swamy has instead chosen to raise an issue that can be divisive and put it on the front-burner of the saffron agenda. Should that be considered significant? The coming days and the swearing-in of a BJP government in UP will soon enough indicate the way forward for the party.

          Islam is not a religion. It is a geo politico military ideology .It has concepts of Kafir Dhimmi,Ghazwas,night raids,Women of right ,women of left hand Polygamy,Tripple utterance of talaak. muhher bride pice,4 kind of nikah,etc etc Quraan there is no place for democratic opposition to Muhammad bin Abdullah or to ideas that do not agree wih it .Abu Lahab the only man who accepted death at the hands of muslims as compared to 4 of muhammads uncles who were forced to accept islam as 100% muslims of India stan and Bangladesh.Islam is Unscientif totalarian,Must dominate Idealogy modern Times it has no place in world .Islam must reform itself.See EXMNA muslims of North America. Muslims leaving Islam ,The worst act in the mind of Allahdian muslims shoul respect l Indian and Ram,Build a temple in his birth place.It is only fair.

                  Now it is propitious time to build Ram Temple which was the pet project. Dr Swamy has taken the initiative already . Congrats!
