Road to 2024: BJP's lessons from the Gujarat and Himachal Assembly elections are "Modi excellent, Modi plus better"

BJP is already negotiating to redraw its agenda for the coming state elections and the 2024 Lok Sabha elections . The party is also examining the Himachal results as an example of what happens when Modis enduring appeal is unable to overcome micromanagement flaws .

Political observers will extract many lessons from the Congress' modest but ephemeral victory in Himachal Pradesh in the just concluded Assembly elections.But two lessons remain internally for the BJP, which is already negotiating to redraw its agenda for the coming state elections and the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.The BJP's total reliance on Prime Minister Narendra Modis' popularity and his influence has sparked one concern among a number of senior party leaders as well as senior cadre around Gujarat.As a side-effect, the party is also examining the Himachal results as an example of what happens when Modis' enduring appeal is unable to overcome micromanagement flaws.But, one senior party official said that even though the party was close to regaining control, the PM devoted no time to chance, campaigning intensily, evoking his unbreakable emotional relationship with his native state, emphasising that his reputation was at stake as the Opposition was seeking a Many in the BJP argue that the party should not agree to a proposal it has opposed elsewhere.
