BJP’s tactics to nullify opposition in parliament are really appreciative
The Modi government has achieved another major political objective besides abrogating Article 370 and 35 A and fully integrating J&K into India. In the Opposition armour, it has exposed the chinks. It showed that, for the Government's mercurial move, the Opposition was disunited, disorganized and utterly unprepared.
It succeeded in weaning away parties like BJD, AIADMK, BSP, Aam Admi Party, TRS, YSRCP and even TDP in the Rajya Sabha. The fate of opposition protest has been virtually sealed by this. Despite knowing fully well that something very big was going to happen on Monday, the Congress benches were almost empty and many MPs did not attend.
To beat the Opposition, the Government has used the surprise element. Among the members, the advance copies of the bill were not circulated. Opposition MPs were caught unawares due to this. During the passing of various bills like the UAPA bill, NIA amendment bill, and Kashmir reservation bill, the party strategists have got a grasp of the differences and ego clashes among the Opposition parties and had exploited them according to the BJP sources.
For the big day on Monday, they fine-tuned their strategy and completely floored the Opposition. This has been appreciated by many political strategists and analysts as the following tactics are used for the well-being of the people and we all know how previous governments played politics with sensitive issues like Kashmir bifurcation.
