By picking up Raina, BJP signals aggressive posturing

By appointing firebrand BJP MLA Ravinder Raina as State Chief, the BJP high command has sent out a clear message to the party rank and file to go aggressive and propagate different schemes announced by the Centre for the welfare of the people to galvanise support ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha and Assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir.
Another high point that tilted balance in favour of Ravinder Raina is his capacity to take on the alliance partner and other mainstream politicians head on with his aggressive oratorical skills. He is sharp in his views and never loses focus from the core BJP agenda.
Ravinder Raina commands support of RSS top brass in the State, as he has worked closely as ‘Pracharak’ for a long period before formerly joining BJP and becoming MLA for the first time from Nowshera.
The shift in the strategy was necessitated in the wake of growing disenchantment among the local population against the existing BJP leadership.
Several senior party leaders were also in the race for the top slot but the party high command preferred young leader over seniors.
Just as party leadership decided to reshuffle the Council of Ministers, the same way the BJP attempted to infuse new lease of life by bringing in youthful leadership to the fore-front.
Since Raina is known for speaking eloquently and propagating party agenda emphatically, he has been projected by the party as the youth leader, who has excellent track record of organisational skills. His stint as ‘pracharak’ is also going to be of great help to him. He can easily connect with young workers of the party and in the coming days when Ravinder Raina will start covering the remote areas of the State, he would be able to enroll more and more youth in the party-fold.
