New Delhi: The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath who is the Hindutva poster boy, has proved to be a failure as far as the results of Assembly elections are concerned.
In states like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana where he addressed about 75 rallies, he has proved to be inefficient in collecting Hindutva votes for the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The BJP wanted to utilise his ability to consolidate Hindu votes in favour of BJP. Leaders of the BJP say Yogi has an ability to create controversy without effort. During the poll campaign, Adityanath also delivered controversial statements in an attempt to polarise voters.
It is understood that to earn the voters through his Hindutva brand of politics the BJP had deployed Yogi Aditya Nath. He was being utilised for polarisation of Hindu voters and to get them to vote for the BJP considering the fact that the party had incumbent governments in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.
However, Sources said that these attempts at reaching out to the faithful Hindu voters and polarisation seems to have failed and there is likely to be a rethink in the party over the deployment of Yogi in future polls.
