India's BJP to fight election banking on Nationalism, IAF strikes
NEW DELHI - India's BJP to fight election banking on Nationalism and IAF strikes, it has been revealed.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to tweak its strategy to bank on 'Rashtravad' (nationalism) as its biggest electoral plank.
Following the Pulwama attack and retaliatory air strikes by the Indian Air Force (IAF) on camps in Pakistan, the party will also tweak its punch line to highlight the muscular approach adopted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the fight against Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.
BJP sources say the current election slogan of '*naamumkin bhi ab mumkin hai*' (the impossible is possible now) will be changed to '*Modi hai to mumkin hai*' (It's possible because of Modi) once the Election Commission of India declared the dates for the election to the 17th Lok Sabha.
*Rasthravad *(nationalism) will be the main theme of the party's election campaign as it firms up its strategy with an eye on repeating its stupendous victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha election and returning to power for the second consecutive term.
The party will play up the IAF airstrikes on Jaish-e-Mohammad camps in Pakistan to corner its opponents on nationalism.
