Modi & his prospective successors
New Delhi: India’s biggest election is going to happen next year. Lok Sabha elections are going to be held in the year 2024, in which it is believed that Narendra Modi is going to become the Prime Minister of the country for the third time without any trouble and confrontation. However, unlike the 2024 election results, there is a question in the minds of the people which is slightly different. That question is that after Narendra Modi, who is the leader within the Bharatiya Janata Party who can be a contender for the post of Prime Minister. If hearsay is to be believed, then there are two such faces within the BJP who are considered as candidates for the post of PM, but today we will tell you about those five faces who can be the contenders for the post of Prime Minister.
Nitin Gadkari, the current Road Transport and Highways Minister of India, who is associated with the soil of Nagpur, the bastion of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, is also a big name in this list. Due to his association with the principles of Savarkar and Golwalkar since his youth till today, he is considered one of the most favorite leaders of the RSS. Nitin Gadkari has always told himself to follow the principles of RSS. The whole country knows the commendable work done by Nitin Gadkari as the Minister of Road Transport and Highways.
He was the PWD minister of Maharashtra from 1995–1999 where he did many incredible things. In the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government that came in 1999, he was entrusted with the Ministry of Road Transport, after which he not only increased the road network in the country but also became the creator of the Prime Minister’s Gram Sadak Yojana. Common people still know him as a hardworking leader who has good relations with every political party. Nitin Gadkari holds the record for being the longest serving road transport minister of India. He has been handling the Ministry of Road Transport for 9 years. He had decided to follow the principles of RSS from the age of 18 and even today he is working for the country without any controversy by making his relations with every state.
The country’s Home Minister Amit Shah is probably the second most favorite name in this list by the public, that is because Amit Shah was considered the successor of Narendra Modi in Gujarat as well. From 2002 to 2012, Amit Shah also held several ministerial posts in the Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government. He is also seen as PM Modi’s strategist and a hard working general. Despite being from Gujarat, he was made in-charge of the big and important state of Uttar Pradesh in the 2014 elections, in which the BJP under his leadership won a record 73 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats. After which he also held the post of National President of BJP. He won the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Gandhinagar seat in Gujarat with a record 5.5 lakh votes. The public also considers him as Modi’s successor because only after he became the Home Minister, the most important decisions have been taken in the country such as the removal of Article 370 (Abrogation of Article 370), bringing a law against triple talaq and the Citizenship Act Amendment (CAA and To do NRC). He is seen as a quick decision maker, so he is also seen as an alternative after Modi.
Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the country’s largest state, is considered to be the top contender for the post of Prime Minister after Modi. Yogi Adityanath is also considered the choice of the public for the post of Prime Minister, for which there are many reasons. The first reason is his work as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. He has left no stone unturned to end the mafia raj in Uttar Pradesh. Every 6-8 months, he makes a list of mafias who are spreading terror in Uttar Pradesh and also gets them eliminated by giving a free hand to the police.
Before Yogi became the Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh used to be in the first place in the cases of rape of women, but now there is a decrease in heinous incidents like rape. The law system of Uttar Pradesh is now counted among the best in the country, which was once considered to be the stronghold of mafia raj and gunda raj. The second reason because of which people are seeing Yogi Adityanath as the next Prime Minister is that he is the biggest face of Hindutva. Yogi Adityanath is considered the most liked leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh after Nitin Gadkari, due to which the hardline section of the Hindu community wants to see him as the Prime Minister.
There are two more such names in the BJP, who are probably not being seen for the post of Prime Minister, but the names of these two leaders are seen emerging in tea stalls and in general conversation and it is also said that if these If leaders are given time, they can become the first choice too. The names of these two leaders are the first, the present Foreign Minister of India, S. Jaishankar (S.Jaishankar) and the other is the Chief Minister of Assam
If we talk about External Affairs Minister Jaishankar, he keeps India’s side in world class programs without any hesitation. His outspokenness and fearlessness in representing India to the public is very much appreciated.
It suits Jaishankar has worked in many countries as Foreign Secretary. He joined the Indian Foreign Service in 1977. Jaishankar has been serving India for many years. Jaishankar was one of the leaders close to former External Affairs Minister late Sushma Swaraj.
Himanta Biswa Sarma
However, at present, the Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma also comes in such leaders who may get the most important post of the country in the coming years. The politics of Himanta Biswa Sarma can be considered parallel to the politics of Narendra Modi after 2002. The way Narendra Modi took big decisions in 2002 to make Gujarat Himant is doing the same in Assam. At the national level, any North-Eastern leader would hardly have had such an influence in the states of North and West. The swift and aggressive manner in which he sarcasm and criticizes the Congress, it somewhere reminds people of the Chief Minister of 2002, Narendra Modi, and perhaps a thing also comes in his favor which has not been seen in this country till now. So it has not happened and that is that in the history of India till now no Prime Minister or President has been from the North-Eastern states.
