Did not get the responsibility for the first time but UP’s challenge is different
Dharmendra Pradhan, on his part, described the success of UP as the contribution of PM Modi’s vision, Amit Shah’s guidance, BJP President JP Nadda’s organizational skills, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s governance and efforts of party workers. Dharmendra Pradhan tweeted after the victory and wrote that the people of UP chose good governance, politics of development and women’s security over the politics of caste, religion and appeasement.
UP election was very important for BJP. Before the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, this election was special in many respects. Dharmendra Pradhan was elected as in-charge from BJP for the country’s largest political state. This responsibility was also special for him in many ways and it was not that he had been entrusted with such a responsibility for the first time. Earlier, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had served as in-charge of Tripura, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka and Bihar. He oversaw the preparations for the assembly elections for the saffron party in Uttarakhand.
What do the results of Odisha Panchayat elections say
Recently, three-tier panchayat elections were held in Odisha in the month of February. Dharmendra Pradhan was absent in Odisha during the panchayat elections as elections were held at the same time as elections were held along with four other states including UP. The BJP had to face defeat in the Panchayat elections and in terms of seats, the numbers were very less. People are also accepting this as a major reason for the party’s defeat in the Panchayat elections. Dharmendra Pradhan supervised the campaign of BJP in the 2017 Panchayat elections. The number of the saffron party in the district panchayat elections increased from 36 in 2012 to 297. Even in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the election campaign was carried forward in the state under the leadership of Dharmendra Pradhan. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had won eight out of 21 Lok Sabha seats.
In order to defeat the BJP in UP, SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav had prepared a strategy with the parties representing the caste in different parts of the state. To bring the Jat-Muslims together in the West UP, formed an alliance with the RLD, and in the East took the Subhaspa with the influence of Rajbhars. According to the region-wise caste arithmetic, parties like Apna Dal (Kamarawadi), Mahanadal were taken along. The BJP responded to this entire caste mobilization in its own way in this election.
