In the wake of recent victories in the states of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is placing a renewed emphasis on the empowerment of women and youth. Prime Minister Modi, addressing party members at the BJP national headquarters earlier on December 4, asserted that the key to electoral success lies in empowering ‘nari shakti’ (women power) and ‘yuva shakti’ (youth power).

Promptly following this declaration, the BJP Yuva Morcha and BJP Mahila Morcha convened in Dimapur, Nagaland, amid the vibrant Hornbill Festival. The BJP Mahila Morcha National President, Vanathi Srinivasan, wasted no time in holding a press conference today in Dimapur, where she targeted the Congress and the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA alliance). Srinivasan discussed the “secret fortune” of Congress RS MP Dheeraj Sahu, recovered by the Income Tax department, criticizing the opposition’s silence on the matter and defending Prime Minister Modi’s demonetization.

The BJP’s intensified focus on women and youth empowerment aligns with the party’s belief that these demographics are central to the nation’s development. A two-day ‘Northeast Mahila Morcha Zonal Meet’ held at Hotel Saramati, Dimapur, further exemplified this commitment.

Prime Minister Modi, during the same speech, highlighted the significance of the recent election results, asserting that ‘Nari Shakti’ has not only become a pillar of strength for the BJP but has also taken on the role of “blessing” the party.

Raju Bista, MP Darjeeling (LS) and National Spokesperson and General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, reinforced this focus on youth empowerment. He conducted a meeting with BJYM Nagaland State Executive Committee Members in Dimapur, emphasizing that under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, Northeastern youths feel connected to the mainstream for the first time, actively participating in shaping a strong, developed, peaceful, and prosperous New India.

Bista, joined by Hinoka Chophy, President Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha Nagaland, Arvind Damani, NEC Member, BJYM, and other Nagaland State BJYM Office Bearers, discussed various issues pertaining to strengthening the organization.

It is noteworthy that while Nagaland is under the governance of NDPP-BJP, the NDPP holds a strong position with 25 seats, while the BJP has only 12. Despite the BJP’s success in establishing a “Congress-free” presence in the Northeast, regional parties have consistently presented a challenge. As the 2024 Lok Sabha elections draw near, the BJP is actively working to strengthen its foothold, building on the momentum gained from recent state election triumphs.
