Nadda directed the executive meeting to ensure that the BJP won all nine states in 2023.

Monday, the national president of the BJP, J. P. Nadda, instructed his leaders to leave no stone unturned to ensure that the party wins all nine upcoming Assembly elections this year, which are a precursor to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In three of the nine states, the BJP is in charge: Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, and Tripura. In Nagaland and Meghalaya, it is part of the ruling coalition.

“He urged the party to be fully committed to ensuring that the BJP wins all nine states this year in preparation for 2024,” There should be no state loss. “Party members must tighten their belts, and the party must not be vanquished,” said BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, quoting Nadda’s comments at the two-day national executive conference, which began on Monday in New Delhi.

Nadda stated that the party cadres and state units would have to emulate Gujarat, where the BJP recently won an “extraordinary and historic” Assembly election. “The Prime Minister had led the election from the front, while the state unit, with all of its officials and employees, worked at the booth level… “The hard labour and booth-level work must be replicated,” Prasad remarked, referencing Nadda’s exhortation to party workers.

Nadda stated, in reference to the debacle in Himachal Pradesh, that the party as an organisation had misread the depth of the anti-incumbency factor and was unable to restrain it, according to sources. A source reported that Nadda stated that rebels ignored the party’s interests.

“He [Nadda] said we had to break the cycle (of the BJP and the Congress alternating terms in power), but we couldn’t. Himachal Pradesh was lost by a margin of less than one per cent. Approximately 37,000 votes separate the Congress and the BJP in Himachal Pradesh. It is a question of happiness, but we must correct ourselves,” Prasad told reporters.

The BJP, which had made significant election wins but lost most of its historical alliances, asserted that it had not abandoned any of its old allies. When asked if the BJP would re-align with its former allies in order to achieve state victories, Prasad responded, “The BJP has not abandoned any of its allies.” We were abandoned by the Shiromani Akali Dal and Nitish Kumar (of JD-U). The public will teach a lesson to those who shifted political allegiances for better pastures.” The veiled reference was to Kumar, who, according to BJP leaders, is now attempting to become the opposition party’s prime ministerial candidate.

Later this year, the BJP is preparing for elections in the crucial states of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Karnataka, where it anticipates a straight contest with the main opposition Congress. In the election-bound state of Telangana, the BJP has been keen to appear as an alternative to the Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS).
