BJP's win in UP Civic Elections will be turning point in Indian Political History. The BJP won eight of the 12 mayoral seats and the number of BJP corporators also went up from 237 to 324. This election was note worth for several reasons. First of all, this the first election after several years in which RSS has actively helped BJP. In fact, RSS pracharak Ram Lal Agrawal was loaned to the BJP to supervise the party’s election management in Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal.
Now it has been proved beyond doubt that BJP's political survival is closely linked to they following the Diktats of RSS and remaining within the boundaries of Ideology.
On the other side, Hindus in UP has every reason to Alarmed. In February this year, minister for haj and minorities welfare Yaqoob Qureshi shocked the world when he offered a Rs 510-million bounty to anyone who would kill the Danish cartoonists who drew images of the Prophet. His wife was put up as the SP's mayoral candidate in Meerut—a seat held by the party. She lost to the BJP. Then it was Azam Khan, the other big Muslim in Mulayam's set-up. He declared on July 17 this year that western UP be made into a Muslim Pradesh. There were also reports of eggs and meat being consumed at the holy ghat of Har ki Pauri in Haridwar during roza-iftar organised by SP.
This election also spelled bad news for Rahul Gandhi who had personally led Congress in the Civic Election. Rahul was expecting to lead congresss party in UP during the coming UP Assembly elections
On hindsight, it seems that BJP losing the General Elections was the best thing which could have happened to Hinduvta Movement
