Why BJP MP’s are failing PM Modi

Modi_MP.jpgTime and again Modi has asked his MP’s to spend time in their constituency when Parliament is not in session. He has asked them to spread the message of the good work Govt. is doing. PM has again asked his MP’s to spread the details of the poor people’s budget. But…there is a BIG but.

MP’s are failing PM Modi. They fail to spread the message. It’s not difficult to understand given that most MP’s didn’t get elected due to own merit. They won on the back of Modi wave. Same people would have lost terribly had they run on Congress ticket in 2014.

If you do a dissection of 282 of them, you will find not many commands that much public following. In fact, I would doubt if many people would voluntarily attend a public gathering called by their MP. I admit I haven’t studied them all. But in the sample I took, the rot was evident.

More so in UP, where people elected Modi with historical majority. Mind you, people here don’t differentiate much between general and state election. For them they have elected Modi, exasperated by SP rule. And they didn’t see the Acche Din.

I don’t want to be too hard on the MP’s here. They fear being asked about Acche Din (at micro level) if they go to the people. Most MP’s are just enjoying the perks while it lasts. I think Modi understands too some extent that his MP’s are not the foot soldiers he can reply on. He knows he needs to go to the public on his own. Mann ki Baat is a good way to do that. There is a need for more such out of the box thinking.
