“Neither do we pride ourselves on our successes nor do we crumble in the disappointment of losses.”
Incharge as a poll agent at Ahmedabad’s Naranpura ward the book is about the journey of a man who has risen through various ranks in party to be it’s president.
The author briefly discusses the role of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee and Deendayal Upadhyaya in the evolution of a party from Jana Sangh to present day Bharatiya Janta Party.
Only in a party which is democratic and ideologically based can a normal booth level worker be entrusted with such big responsibility. It is very much true as every stalwarts from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Amit Shah have worked their way up just by focusing on Development and Upliftment of the people.
Starting as just a party with ten members to be the world’s largest party with more than ten crore members imagine the trust people have entrusted it with. True to it the party under the leadership of Prime minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have left no stone unturned in preventing dynasticism, casteism and appeasement take over development and upliftment of all.
Only when you listen to the people would you know their problem. It is the culture of Pravaas and Samvad (tour and dialogue) that makes the party rooted.
In particular the readers will get to know more about the phase of (2014 – 2019) , how Prime minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah combine inspite of various challenges and insinuation hurled at them have literally won election be it the Loksabha or the state with sole focus on the agenda of Development and upliftment of the poor.
The party’s emphasis on technology for eg. Online membership drive, strengthening booth level workers and forming a good social media team adept with necessary skills required was interesting to read.
It was Amit Shah’s meticulous planning analysing various facts and details to come to conclusion was very notable. His love and emphasis on reading to stay relevant and upto date inspite of his hectic schedule of travelling throughout the country campaigning shows his love for what he does.
Personally, I feel, the book is very well written with available resources and is very much transparent as readers can refer to various facts, analyse it with the clear bibliophile and Video links at the end. Overall, it’s a good start.
