BJP believes it’s ‘ab ki baar...’

Good days in Haryana are bound to come if the people of the State vote BJP to power in the ensuing State polls, as they have done in the Lok Sabha elections, says the Head of BJP Gurgaon, Tejpal Tanwar. He is a veteran of many battles and has seen the fluctuating fortunes of the Party in a State where local political parties have mainly held sway. Though Congress has managed to out-manoeuvre the INLD, BJP and other smaller parties for a long time, strong anti-incumbency against the Hooda government may ensure that the BJP this time becomes the frontrunner for power in this still extensively rural State. While caste, and community loyalties will continue to play an important role, Tanwar strongly believes that people will give his Party a chance because they now want a party that will bring development and growth. Till now Haryana has been dominated by powerful clans who have strong pocket boroughs, and once elevated to power they indulge in parochial development restricted to their areas. Tanwar asserts that under the BJP the era of the ‘CM City’ will be brought to an end, and the entire State will get equal attention - particularly the backward areas of Haryana. The victory of BJP in the Gurgaon Lok Sabha election, he says, is a clear message that Modi's charisma and the strong locals roots of Rao Inderjit Singh are a winning combination. "In Haryana we have a strong team, a good organisation and committed workers," says Tanwar. He believes that the Party should project a right leader for the post of Chief Minister, and thereafter fight the election with full force. He adds that coalitions have not really worked, and this time the BJP should fight the battle alone and possibly project Rao Inderjit Singh as the candidate for Haryana CM. Though the decision in this regard has to be taken by the Parliamentary Board, a choice of Rao Inderjit would almost assure the BJP of 30 seats. "In case there has to be a coalition, it should be based on performance and not on any emotional reasons," asserts Tanwar. He also opines that whatever is decided by the Party and the leaders, and workers will abide by that as loyal soldiers. Referring to the earlier apprehensions among BJP workers on the entry of the Gurgaon MP and his supporters (from the Congress), Tanwar says it is just that anyone who enters the Party has to follow the organisation’s rules and regulations. The loyal party workers will always be specially appreciated and respected. "After winning at the Centre, the next target is Chandigarh, as winning power in the State is the only way we can end the prolonged discrimination with this area (South Haryana)," asserts Tanwar. Referring to the politics of polarisation in Mewat, Tanwar says that the Congress is responsible for practising ‘minority politics’, and this is also the reason why it has alienated a huge section of population. Appreciating the role played by the RSS in the recent Lok Sabha polls, Tanwar says that they helped greatly in providing a support system to the BJP, especially for co-ordination and monitoring. What should give heart to Gurgaonites is Tanwar’s assurance that all those builders who have not delivered as per their plans will be taken to task, the farmers who have not been paid their due compensation will get justice, and forcible land acquisition will be stopped.
