Modi Visits BJP Veterans Advani and Joshi Ahead of Third Term Bid

Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi on Friday, marking a significant step before formally staking his claim to form the government at the Centre for a third consecutive term. These visits to the residences of the party veterans underscored Modi’s respect and acknowledgement of their foundational contributions to the BJP.

The sequence of events began soon after Modi was unanimously chosen as the leader of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) parliamentary party, the leader of the BJP parliamentary party, and the leader of the BJP in the Lok Sabha. This formalization came following the party’s impressive performance in the recent elections.

First, Modi visited L K Advani, a pivotal figure in the BJP’s history and a mentor to many within the party, including Modi himself. The meeting with Advani was not just a courtesy call but a gesture symbolizing continuity and respect for the senior leadership. Advani’s role in shaping the BJP’s ideology and direction has been profound, and this visit reiterated the ongoing relevance of his guidance.

After his visit to Advani, Modi proceeded to meet Murli Manohar Joshi, another stalwart and former president of the BJP. Joshi has been instrumental in the party’s ideological consolidation and electoral strategies over the decades. Modi’s meeting with Joshi further highlighted his recognition of the foundational work done by the veteran leaders in steering the party to its current stature.

These meetings were strategically significant as they took place just before Modi was scheduled to visit Rashtrapati Bhawan. At Rashtrapati Bhawan, Modi was to meet President Droupadi Murmu to stake his claim to form the government, backed by a solid majority in the Lok Sabha. The BJP, having secured 240 seats, along with the NDA’s total of 293 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha, stands in a strong position to form the government.

The BJP’s electoral success and the subsequent formation of the government underscore the party’s continued dominance in Indian politics. Modi’s meetings with Advani and Joshi reflect a blend of respect for the past and a strategic consolidation of support within the party as he prepares to lead the country for a third term.

These engagements also highlight the importance of unity and the acknowledgment of contributions from party veterans in the BJP’s political culture. As Modi moves forward with his leadership, these gestures towards Advani and Joshi are symbolic of a harmonious transition and respect for the legacy that has propelled the party to its current position.

In conclusion, Narendra Modi’s meetings with L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi ahead of his visit to Rashtrapati Bhawan were more than mere formalities. They were deeply symbolic acts that reinforced his commitment to the values and foundations laid by these senior leaders. As Modi prepares to embark on his third term as Prime Minister, the backing of the party veterans and the clear mandate from the electorate position him strongly to steer the country towards further development and progress.
