Modi vs Yogi: Can RSS' Hindutva blurr the clash?

The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) high-level meeting is taking place in the capital and all eyes are on the outcome of the meeting. This meeting can determine not only the political destiny of Uttar Pradesh, but also the political destiny of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

On the surface, the purpose of the meeting was to discuss plans to prepare for the next state elections in March 2022. However, if insiders are to be believed, the main agenda of the meeting is the current crisis due to confrontation. ongoing between Adityanath and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The violent tempers between the two leaders were mainly due to Modi's nominee entering Adyanat's cabinet. It is understood that the prime minister resolutely refused to comply with the prime minister's wishes and let the former Gujarat cadre IAS official Arvind Kumar Sharma serve as the senior deputy minister.

About five months ago, when Sharma was transferred from Ahmedabad to Lucknow and was nominated as a member of the State Legislative Council (MLC), Adityanath had no problems. But when it came to letting him take the top cabinet post, the prime minister was wary and disgusted with him. Adyanat reportedly began to believe that Sharma had been sent to Lucknow to check.

It is widely speculated that Sharma will replace one of the two existing deputy top ministers: Dinesh Sharma or Keshav Prasad Maurya. It is believed that Mauria may be transferred to the position of president of the National Party organization, and he also made this accusation before the 2017 state elections. The powerful leader of the OBC, Maurya, who has always considered himself a candidate for the position of Chief Minister, you have shown your reluctance. In the end, he is said to have agreed to accept the post of party secretary, provided he was outside of his currentduties as deputy prime minister.

This led the party bosses to suggest that the two Sharmas should replace each other. However, Adityanath is said to have opposed the inclusion of the bureaucratic MLC transformed into the post of senior deputy minister.

This was followed by the sudden arrival of Dattatreya Hosabale, Deputy Director of RSS National, who in addition to meeting with Adityanath, also carried out long-term work to obtain feedback from various members of the UP Council of Ministers and many MLAs. . According to the grapevine, most of the people who met with Hosabal expressed their discontent with the Chief Minister. Some of them even expressed their annoyance in black and white, and unceremoniously asserted Adityanath's "ignorance".

Some ministers have expressed reservations about their so-called "bureaucratic-driven" deficiencies in COVID-19 management, reiterating how people are dying due to shortages of oxygen and medicines other than the lack of beds in hospitals. They believe that this is what caused the bodies to be dumped on rivers or banks in many parts of the state.

Hosabale is second only to Mohan Bhagwat in the RSS hierarchy and is known for being close to Modi, returning to Delhi after spending three days in Lucknow. Then BJP (organization) country secretary B.L. Santhosh and the party's UP manager Radha Mohan Singh repeated almost the same exercise as Hosabale.

After Santosh and Singh returned from the zero point in Lucknow, the RSS meeting in Delhi began on June 3. In fact, everyone is absolutely confidential about what happened behind closed doors in the capital. Senior leaders of the organization described these deliberations as "routine" pre-election matters. On the other hand, the rumors aremainly due to the party and RSS bigwigs answering calls about Adityanath's future.

His saffron robe and sharp words made him a great icon of Hinduism. He has always been the party's star contender in every corner of the country, be it in the constituencies of Kerala, Gujarat, the Northeast or West Bengal, even if his campaign results appear to be suboptimal. It is for this reason that so many efforts have been made to persuade and convince him to make the wishes of Modi come true, who is also the torchbearer of Hinduism. Modi may not put on the saffron, but his appeal as a Hindu leader is huge, especially after his success at Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, the downplay of Article 370, and other RSS issues (such as Instant After the criminal conviction of Triple Talak )

In fact, analysts at the BJP-Sangh relationship said the dispute between Adityanath and Modi could have easily been avoided. If Adityanath can handle Arvind Sharma's situation smarter without making too much noise, then the whole problem won't snowball. Even his kind people think he could have avoided becoming a matter of prestige, which amounts to challenging the authority of an all-powerful prime minister.

Insiders recalled how Kalyan Singh, then UP's chief minister, had a similar misfortune. However, his defiance of then-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee (Atal Bihari Vajpayee) cost him a heavyprice. A stage emerged when Kalyan Singh's survival instinct forced him even to come to terms with his main political opponent, Murayan Singh Yadav. After being politically forgotten for a few years, he finally had to beg to rejoin the BJP, and Modi subsequently supported him as governor of Rajasthan, thus ending his political career.

Time will tell what the future holds in store for Yogi Adityanath
