In the wake of senior BJP leaders breaking silence on the Bihar poll debacle by directly putting blame on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah, BJP leaders in Kashi have taken it upon themselves to dispel any notion of dissent brewing within the party leadership, while also claiming that the SP and the Congress are “creating propaganda against the BJP after the Bihar results”.

In a meeting called by Kashi chief Laxman Acharya (who is also an MLC) in the prime minister’s constituency Varanasi on Friday, leaders put on a brave face by claiming that “workers’ faith in Modi and Shah still exists”.

“Morale of the workers has not declined after Bihar results and party will form government in UP under the leadership of the PM and Amit Shah,” said Acharya who pointed out to the gathering at the meeting that it was “the collective leadership of Modi and Shah that the BJP formed a government in states like Kashmir, something unimaginable before”. He, however, did not explain the reason for discussing the matter at the meeting, which, he said, was called to “review the party’s other programmes”.

The welcome that the PM received from his British counterpart David Cameron and his meeting with Queen Elizabeth II in the UK was also highlighted by Acharya during the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the party district offices in Bhadohi and Allahabad on Saturday.

BJP Kashi region media in-charge Sanjay Bhardwaj said the statement issued Friday highlighted that the Congress and SP leaders were “misguiding the public”. “Sending out the message was necessary to clear negative thoughts among party workers after the Bihar results.”
