The Bharatiya Janata Party will take the SC’s Rafale verdict to the last person in the country using its efficient grassroots communication structure
New Delhi: An elated Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is ready to paint not just the town but the country red with the Supreme Court verdict on the Rafale deal that debunked on Friday Congress’s allegations of wrongdoing and favouritism towards Anil Ambani, whose firm was chosen as one of the offset partners among 100 others by original manufacturer Dassault Aviation.
The SC verdict has soured the Congress’s electoral victories in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh while the BJP launched a major offensive against the grand old party and its chief Rahul Gandhi. Beginning with a powerful presser by BJP chief Amit Shah, who asked Gandhi to apologise to the nation for his ‘politics of lies’, the BJP followed it up by similar media briefings by defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman and finance minister Arun Jaitley.
But, the real media blitz is yet to come. The party had, by the time of filing of this report, decided further that similar press conferences would be held in all state capitals by the senior state leadership.
The party is in the process of finalising an elaborate plan to decide the best modus operandi to take the message to the masses down to the village and taluka levels using its communication machinery, including social media and IT assets.
“Lies do not have feet and so they can’t stand for long. Rahul Gandhi’s incessant lies have finally crumbled on the altar of justice in the Supreme Court. We Indians believe in ‘Satyamev Jayate’, that truth always triumphs and that is what has haoppened,” said Amit Malviya, BJP’s national head of IT and social media.
According to highly placed sources, the party would use the day to draw a detailed blueprint of its media campaign across the country. The plan would be finalised by late evening after a meeting of party functionaries and the high command.
