    No politicians would like to lose his/her support base. And despite the massive mandate Modi is no exception. He needs to closely monitor the activities of Ministerial colleagues and bureaucrats against acts that could end up hurting majority of his die hard supporters.

    There was no suspense in the historic 2014 Lok Sabha election. Everyone knew it was Narendra Damodardas Modi of the Bharatiya Janata Party who would be the winner. Well, he did and became the Prime Minister on May 26. But then a massive mandate brings in an equal amount of expectations too. When everyone believes that they have a stake in the Modi Government, matching the huge trust of the citizens becomes all the more important. This is the biggest challenge that his Government has to confront, and that too decisively.

    Despite heading a coalition, Modi’s biggest advantage is that the BJP has the majority to run the Government alone and by itself. Thus, he can afford to be strict and a tough taskmaster – a luxury BJP’s first premier Atal Bihari Vajpayee never had owing to his party’s dependence on allies for survival.

    For a beginner, Modi’s outings abroad – Bhutan, Brazil and Nepal – have been successful. His forthcoming visit to America has been a topic of global debate.

    But the real battle awaits him on the home turf. On the matter of governance, people expect him to arrest vexing problems and issues – fast. Some of his party men, Ministerial colleagues and sundry content writers have been arguing that “it takes time”. Well, it certainly does. People know that Modi just can’t wave a magic wand for an instant solution. What they really want to see is things moving faster.

    The upcoming Assembly elections in Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Delhi, Haryana and Jharkhand – pose considerable political challenge for BJP, as the results are obviously going to be analysed in terms of a referendum on Brand Modi by critics.

    Talking of cementing a cohesive political network, Modi is greatly complimented by the amazing organisational wizard Amit Shah – the new president of the BJP. Having already proved his awesome talents in elections 2014, specially in Uttar Pradesh, it’s likely that Modi would be substantially depending on Shah’s groundwork skills to repeat an encore for his party.

    Modi and Shah make a perfect team – again an advantage Vajpayee never had during his tenure as the Prime Minister. The defeat of BJP in 2004 and 2009 Lok Sabha polls were largely due to a sedate party organisation that lacked the drive to win due to years of neglect.

    Mercifully, now the Prime Minister and the party president – both understand the importance of a robust party network and have been seemingly working in that direction. For both of them, Odisha, West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu, are some of the States that require a fresh approach and focused attention. BJP’s organisational bases are in a shambles in the entire eastern India.

    No politicians would like to lose his/her support base. And despite the massive mandate Modi is no exception. He needs to closely monitor the activities of Ministerial colleagues and bureaucrats against acts that could end up hurting majority of his die hard supporters.

    It is early. But Modi must realise that he owes his millions of silent supporters an ideal India where they can hold their head high and breathe freely. He has to deliver before 2019.

    If not golden then al least a silver future, better than of stone age.

    For now, Modi has been consolidating his hold on govt and administration. They need to be reinvented. Gone are the days when UPA ministers could ignore MMS and approach Saino. Bureaucrats are going to be much more responsible and will have to get used to taking time bound decisions. I think 3 more months will be required to achieve that minimum. Notice how NDA ministers are not making off the cuff, loose statements.
