Why is BJP showing more kindness to minorities, understand its meaning from three cases

Before the Lok Sabha elections, BJP is trying to increase its reach among all the communities of the society. BJP is taking new steps especially to make its hold and reach among the minority community. Be it appointing a Sikh to the BJP’s top body Parliamentary Board or making four Muslims MLCs in Uttar Pradesh. The party has tried to increase its reach among the minorities.

BJP leaders appointed Tariq Mansoor, former vice-chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, as a member of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council after celebrating Easter with Christians in Kerala earlier this month. This has increased the number of Muslim MLCs to four, the highest among all parties.

In August last year, the party had inducted Iqbal Singh Lalpura, who comes from the Sikh community, into the party parliamentary party, who is relatively new compared to many leaders.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the last two national executive of the BJP, has asked party workers to reach out to minorities beyond electoral objectives. He himself has been meeting the spiritual leaders of the minorities. However, the BJP has only one Muslim MP, while there is not a single Union minister from the community.
