Can the BJP look beyond Mr. Modi & Amit Shah?With the recent Karnataka elections, although not in power yet, the BJP can claim a moral victory. It managed to upset the in power Congress party. Had they made the strategic pre-poll pact with JD(S), the BJP by now would have had the swearing in of it's CM candidate.
One cannot undermine the influence of the charismatic presence and oratory skills of the PM Mr.Modi and its effect on the Karnataka results. Similarly, we cannot ignore the organizational skills of Mr.Amit Shah.
All this is fine for BJP on its way to a Congress mukth Bharat in 2019. But logically, the influence of PM on the voters is slowly going to wane or come down. The duo can't always deliver success.
So, Can the BJP look beyond the duo of Mr.Modi and Mr.Amit Shah? Even if it can, can it afford it?
