No question of deviating from Hindutva: BJP

 BJP president Rajnath Singh being gifted an idol of a goddess at the party’s state executive committee meeting in Lucknow on Sunday. PTI“There is no question of deviating from Hindutva. It does not matter if we have to sacrifice power to retain our ideology,” Singh said while speaking at the concluding session of the two-day long state executive committee meeting here.

“We are determined to follow the Hindutva agenda. Come what may, we will not leave it. We will not compromise with Hindutva, even if we have to wait for five-10 more years to assume power,” Singh said at the BJP’s Uttar Pradesh working committee meeting.

Stating that every citizen of the country was “attached” to Hindutva, he lamented that some parties viewed “Hindutva as being communal”.

Citing the example of the BSP, he said that the parties that deviate from their basic ideology are finished. “The BSP faced reverses when it moved away from bahujan to saravjan.”

“We started from the Hindutva ideology and will continue with it without any changes. We draw inspiration from Hindutva, which is not confined to any religion. It’s a medium of spreading brotherhood across the country.”

Without naming any political outfit, Singh said some parties are hell-bent on projecting Hindutva in a bad light. “The so-called intellectuals and secularists are giving a communal colour to Hindutva and are also working against the moral and traditional values of the country,” he said. “We want to make it clear that we cannot compromise with moral values that make our country popular across the globe. For the sake of preserving the country’s vaules, we can even sacrifice power.”

Singh asked the party workers not to lose heart following the party’s dismal showing in the recent Lok Sabha polls. “The country is gradually turning towards bi-polar politics, which is a good sign for the future of the BJP. In fact, the future belongs to us,” he said.
“BSP and the Samajwadi Party were losing their political relevance in Uttar Pradesh and the BJP can emerge as a viable political alternative in this situation”, he said.

The BJP president said that assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh could be held earlier than expected—possibly within one year and asked party workers to begin preparations for the same without further delay. He said that the party would analyse the reasons for this but it would not be made public.

Singh admitted that the all was not well with the party’s affairs in Uttar Pradesh and warned that unless corrective steps were taken the party could shrink further in the state.
