With abrogation and Ayodhya in his kitty, what next is on the cards for PM Modi?
Bengaluru: In just a matter of a few months after being sworn in for the second successive time as the prime minister, Narendra Modi has ticked two boxes of promises the BJP had made in its Lok Sabha polls manifesto.
The first, as we all know, is the abrogation of Articles 35A and 370. After years and years of pussy-footing on the issue by the Congress, the PM took the ultimate decision to rescind the two Articles, paving way for a complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of India.
Second, the Ayodhya verdict. A conundrum in the literal sense, this issue had bombarded the nation with its sensitiveness. But the BJP had promised to build the grand temple.
However, the going was certainly not smooth, considering that the matter was sub-judice and any decision on that outside the purview of the court was simply unthinkable.
Now that the court has decreed in favour of Hindus, the writing is certainly on the wall.
With two major decisions in PM’s kitty, what next are on the cards?

Well, there are several issues that need to be legislated.
One, the burning issue of Uniform Civil Code (UCC). Then comes National Register of Citizens, the scope of which may be extended to the entire nation. Third on the list is Citizens Amendment Bill (CAB).
Shreenath Sheshadri, a BJP spokesperson said, “The Modi government is executing a lot of its commitments for the massive mandate it has got from the people of India. It is doing it in different ways to fulfil the long-term aspirations of the people of this country. This would lead to administrative modifications in the country, making India strong and better.”
Modi’s resolve to take the bull by the horns only exemplifies his will to do the unthinkable.
Now, the entire nation waits with bated breath to see what the next move is!
