After Delhi elections, BJP stands divided on strategy for 2021 state polls.
BJP's defeat in Delhi elections, clearly indicates how the issues of CAA, NRC and NPR have backfired.
BJP has been justifying the divisive law amidst the country wide protests.
The party painted the Delhi polls with communal colours and badly failed.
Most of the campaign hovered around CAA and NRC, Shaheen Bagh being the focal point.
Delhi rejected the BJP hence confirming people's displeasure for the divisive agenda.
After the Delhi defeat party is in dilemma over CAA-NRC.
BJP poll managers are wondering if the party should push its aggresive strategy on CAA and NRC...... or mellow it down and lace it up with alternare policies of governance.
BJP leaders are in two minds about its strategy for 2021 assembly polls in West Bengal.
Just like West Bengal where the party won 18 out of 42 seats in 2019.....it had won all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi.
But within a few months, the results are completely opposite in Assembly polls in Delhi.
Party is worried and is thinking of a new strategy.
BJP leaders now believe that their campaign should not only highlight implementation of CAA and NRC.
They now want to stress on alternate and better policies of governance.
With the TMC opposing CAA-NRC tooth and nail, and the BJP has been pressing for its implementation.
West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh stands with a different view
"If you want to counter a party like the TMC, you have to keep up the tempo and your aggressive strategy. "
Ghosh believes ,"If we change our strategy it will be considered that we are retreating."
BJP has faced six consecutive defeats in state elections in last two years.
There are differences and dilemma in the party over CAA.
The divisive law seems to have divided the party itself in opinions.
