An article in a leading American newspaper claims that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the most important foreign party in the world. The Wall Street Journal, headquartered in New York City, published an editorial section by academic Walter Russell Mead, stating that the BJP is crucial to American national interests, especially in controlling China’s hegemony in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean region. Mead suggests that, like Israel’s Likud, the BJP follows traditional economic policies and firmly believes that it can lead India to become a dominant world power. As India continues to emerge as the largest economic power globally, its ruling party’s political and cultural history must be understood. However, the party’s policies have faced opposition from those who support Western culture and politics, leading to concerns that journalists and minorities are being harassed in India, and that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) enjoys close ties with the BJP. Regardless, maintaining friendly relations with the BJP and RSS has become crucial for America’s economic and political growth in the current environment.
Washington: BJP is the most important party in the world, according to an article in a leading American newspaper.
The Wall Street Journal is headquartered in New York City, USA. An article written by academic Walter Russell Mead in the editorial section of this newspaper said: From the point of view of American national interests, India’s Bharatiya Janata Party is the most important foreign party in the world.
BJP rule in 2024: BJP came to power in India in 2014. It formed the government for the 2nd time in 2019. In the coming year 2024, that party will form the government for the 3rd time.
India is emerging as the largest economic power in the world. The country is a reliable ally of the US in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean region. In the current environment, the US cannot control China’s hegemony without the support of India’s ruling party, the BJP.
Most foreigners are not fully aware of the political and cultural history of the BJP. It is important to understand that party. The BJP firmly believes that it can lead a country of over 100 crore people and make India a world power.
Like Israel’s Likud, the party follows traditional economic policies. Those who support Western culture and Western politics are strongly opposed to BJP’s policies.
Because of this, left-wing American critics are raising various questions about Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led India. They are deeply concerned that journalists and minorities are being harassed in India. They fear the close ties the RSS has with the BJP.
China’s growth has raised international tensions. In this context, America should maintain friendly relations with BJP and RSS. Economic and political relationship with India is very important for America. This requires Americans to understand the principles of the Hindu nationalist movement. Thus it is stated in it.
