Revival of Friends of BJP

March 8th, 2010 · 19 Comments

I was part of a small team from Friends of BJP that was invited to attend the BJP National Council meet in Indore in mid-Feb. It was quite a gathering – over 5,000 people brought together from all over the country.

Among the announcements made was that of the revival of Friends of BJP.

Here is what Nitin Gadkari said in his Presidential Address: “We are also planning to revive Friends of BJP, an associate organisation of the non-member Well Wishers of the party. All patriotic citizens, especially all young professionals who look forward to BJP as an instrument of making India a resurgent republic are welcome to join this forum.”

We will be back with more details soon. My hope is that we can help bring about a change in India’s political and policy climate in the coming years.

    Rajesh,
    I was one of the individuals who wanted BJP voted back to power in 2004 because of what they achieved in their last term. And I firmly believe that BJP was pro-reforms in their term.
    But seeing what India has been able to achieve in last 6 odd years shouldn’t be undermined. Ofcourse, Congress isn’t the reformist that most urban Indians want and India has managed the growth because of sheer efficiencies of private enterprise.
    For what we have achieved in last 6 years, I don’t go all out against them. Today, I don’t see any reason why BJP should be supported – There is no great leader remaining whom we can trust to take our country forward. They don’t play the role of constructive opposition at all. They find baseless arguments in blocking/ criticizing every Congress move.
    I fail to understand what is it that you see so strongly in BJP to go & support them. I don’t to vote for a government shouts from roof-top. I want a clear plan of what they would do & who is the team that is at work. Unfortunately, I don’t see either.

    What is really needed is not revival of Friends of BJP, but revival of BJP itself. I think Congress has won a lot of erstwhile BJP supporters over the past 6 years; and BJP has lost a lot of supporters over the past 2 years. There is a critical distinction between the two, and the latter can only be addressed by the BJP leadership itself.

    Alok and Santosh,

    I think for the future of the country there should be a worthy opposition. After Nitin Gadkari became party president, I believe BJP is ready for transformation and play the role of constructive opposition till next election.

    Some things we all expected BJP would but they never did.
    1. Leadership Issue. They just dragged and dragged until every one else got fedup with them. Today they need indentification in terms of a good leader. Just one leader. A hierarchy that should be visible. In BJP that is just not there.
    2. Numbers. BJP claimed that it had lots of young people. Good. But where are they? You dont find them blogging. We need them. At least at State level, if not district level, leaders should blog. Tell us something what is happening. BJP can take a lead here, but unfortunately no.
    3. I agree they are not a good opposition. Congress is doing few things right and few things wrong. Critisize the wrong ones. Dont just talk on anything and everything.
    4. Youth Leader. Of all parties except congress that has Rahul Gandhi, no other party including BJP has anybody like him. They are doing nothing for that as well.

    I still believe in BJP, but they need to re-engineer themselves, else they will be a spent force.
