For BJP, road to 2019 will not be easy
The BJP may face a number of difficulties after losing three parliamentary seats in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. To begin with, the Narendra Modi and Amit Shah team will have to plug organizational loopholes in these two states
The message from the Uttar Pradesh and Bihar byelections is clear for the party in power— the road to 2019 will be much more difficult to negotiate than 2014. The party’s helmsmen will also have to introspect on this question: Do their chaal and charitra (functioning and character) need to change? Could it be that the morale of party workers and newfound supporters have been dented?
