BJP is engaged in Operation Extermination i.e., elimination of every other political party. It is different from Operation Lotus where BJP wanted some MLAs to defect so it can form government or strengthen its government when it did not have sufficient MLAs and had to depend on allies.
In Goa, BJP had 20 MLAs. It had support of 2 MGP and three independent MLAs. That was enough in Goa Legislative Assembly which has 40 seats. Yet BJP went to poach Congress and 8 out of 11 Congress MLAs quit Congress and joined BJP on 14/9/2022. After the election they had in front of a Church and a Temple and had taken oath to remain in Congress. That meant nothing. Digambar Kamat said “I went to the Temple again and asked God what to do. God told me to do whatever is best for you.” Interesting reply.
God did not side with Digambar Kamat in Margao Municipal Council Chairperson election on 17/9/2022. His candidate Damodar Shirodkar got 10 votes and lost to independent candidate Ghanshyam Shirodkar who got 15 votes and was backed by Goa Forward Party. In secret voting, 6 BJP votes went to Ghanshyam.
In Maharashtra, BJP split Shiv Sena and formed government on 30/6/2022. That day Eknath Shinde and Devendra Fadnavis took oath as CM and Deputy CM respectively. After 40 days 18 ministers took oath; 9 each from Shinde group and BJP. Maharashtra cabinet has not reached its full strength. Uddhav Thackeray has not got permission to hold Dasara rally in Shivaji Park. BJP has declared it wants to win 45 seats out of 48 in Maharashtra in 2024 Lok Sabha election. It means MPs in Shinde group will not have BJP support. Alliance will be over.
BJP wants to topple AAP governments in Delhi and Punjab and Hemant Soren government in Jharkhand. It fights with TMC in West Bengal and TRS in Telangana. BJP celebrates 17 September as Telangana Liberation Day and TRS celebrates it as Telangana National Integration Day.
On 3/9/2022, 5 out of 6 JD(U) MLAs in Manipur joined BJP. It will not be a surprise if Bihar government led by Nitish Kumar is toppled.
No BJP minister or MLA is target of CBI, ED or ITD.
