People are talking about the new animated video uploaded by the BJP which talks about how Prime Minister Modi has tolerated all insults and has marched ahead in his political journey from being the chief minister of Gujarat in 2007 to twice being the Prime Minister of India. Mujhe chalte jana hai is a video aimed at impressing voters before the 2024 elections although it does not mention the elections even once. People say that the very fact that the lead song is the Kishore Kumar-sung hit from the film Parichay shows that the BJP wants to say that PM Modi's journey has not ended and he will lead the party to another win in 2024.
People say that the video rightly shows all the insults heaped on Modi by a host of Congress leaders starting from the "maut ka saudagar" barb by Sonia Gandhi to "chowkidar chor hai" by Rahul Gandhi and the recent "sau sir wala ravaan" by Mallikarjun Kharge, not to forget the "neech" slur by Mani Shankar Aiyar. People are of the opinion that these insults have not been liked by a majority of people and have contributed to the rising popularity of PM Modi. The video also highlights the various schemes of the Modi government like Swach Bharat, Ujjwala, PM Kisan and others and the work done in managing the Covid situation.
But people also warn that the BJP must not go overboard and learn the right lessons from the failed "India Shining" campaign in 2004 which could not help the party win the elections despite the good work done under Atal Behari Vajpayee. People say that although Modi is immensely popular and India might achieve the target of being a $5 trillion economy (as shown in the video) by 2025-26, the party must highlight its achievement and not harp on the $5 trillion target.
