TDN World Desk: Second term for Modi as Prime Minister of India is ensured. His political party Bharatiya Janata party is all set to sweep a landslide victory. BJP alliance party NDA is likely to bag above 300 seats.
Assured of victory Modi tweets on Thursday, says ” together we will build a strong and inclusive India”.
Modi wrote in his tweeter thread, ”
“Together we grow. Together we prosper. Together we will build a strong and inclusive India.”
He also reminds of the 2014 election slogan sabka sath sabka Vikas ( development for all).
Using hash he wrote “Vijayi Bharat”.
Leaders from various states like Mamta Banerjee, Mehbooba Mufti congratulated the winner BJP. Shah Faesal congratulates Modi at the same time expressed half-hearted concern for Kashmir.
But while Modi expressed an idea of includsive India, a broader section of Indian fears Modi to returning in power. Minority Muslims and lower castes Hindus are mainly pertained to this section.
For the last five years, during Modi’s last tenure as Prime Minister, India saw the othering of Muslims and atrocities on Daltis and Adivasis.
On Thursday, a day when India celebrates the victory of Modi, an international media expressed the same concern in an article featuring
” India’s minorities fear return of Modi”.
For instances, the news story take notes of the murder of Rakbar Khan in the hands of cow vigilants. Besides mob lynching, caste oppression the article shades concern over Modi’s hinduata Nationalism agenda.
During election campaign BJP chief Amit Shah termed the Muslims as “termite”. Even just one day before election result is out, on Tuesday report surfaced where Muslims in Uttar Pradesh state revealed that they will have to leave their village if Modi comes in power for the second. The communal harmony that was there had already been disturbed. Hindu Muslim children now hesitate to play together. Few days before the first phase election begins a elderly man namely Shaukat Ali was forced to eat pork meat. No statement of condemnation did come from the leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party.
Hence, when Narendra Modi tweets of an “inclusive India” before him assuming for the second term in office as PM, the minorities and lower castes people have enough reason to fear.
