Sakshi Maharaj, Sadhvi Pragya, Giriraj, Adityanath
Among many types of controversies, like false controversies, speculative controversies, intentional controversies etc, a new narrative has emerged, which is 'manufactured controversies'. Indeed it is shameful that controversies can be 'Manufactured'. In other words 'Implanted'.
Let us take these 4 BJP MPs in particular. 3 from UP and 1 from Bihar. All from the North and one belt.
Why shud their statements help to sway voters in Delhi, AP, Kerala or TN?
2ndly, if one carefully notices, with the exception of Adityanath & the Sadhvi, the remaining two were approached by Media for particular bytes on specific situations.
For example, very recently, Sakshi Maharaj was approached by a TimesNow reporter after Azzam Khan's famous speech after the Paris attacks. These r men of God. As usual Sakshi spoke his mind, and the same was displayed on Breaking News on TimesNow.
I ask the Media, why go to Sakshi or Sadhvi or Giriraj or Adityanath for their bytes?? Unless u have some ulterior motive. If u have the guts, go to Jaitley, go to Rudy, go to Smriti, go to Ananth Kumar, go to Ms.Lekhi, etc.
Why do u go to these men/women of God, who are from basically rustic and meagre backgrounds and who know nothing else but to speak their minds?
These r not people who r politically correct. And, they can never be politically correct. They have won their elections (some for their 1st time), and dont mind not winning again, or not standing again, if party decides so. Their strengths r their local people who have elected them for the love of them and the unselfish services they dish out as holy people, thro their ashrams and other seva samitis.
The Media will not go to Jaitley, Lekhi, Smriti, Rudy etc, since, none of them will give them a byte which will make breaking news and help the media sway electorates in other states due to their reach.
If u see particularly in the case of Giriraj and Sakhsi, all their so called controversial bytes have been given when reporters have gone and prodded them with stupid questions.
If one compares their views and let us say with mine or many educated like me, my/our views r far more extreme then these 4, based on facts ofcourse. But, having the advantage of being educated, we camouflage our views with our language and presentation.
But unfortunately, these simple, rustic and meagre 4 do not have that advantage and have become the Media's favorite hot spot for Breaking News Bytes.
The knowledge levels of these 4 r restricted max only to their districts and the wrongs which they see happening in their district. Or perhaps a bit more. Whereas our knowledge on the injustice is Global. Which makes our views more extreme in comparison to that of those 4.
And, it pains to see some in this forum criticizing those 4 as 'some from BJP too are involved in mindless statements'.
I appeal and request the BJP to request these 4 to stop giving bytes to any News Channel which approaches them. Pro or Anti-BJP channel.
Stop these 4 from issuing any byte, repeat, any byte till the UP Elections. Believe me, UP will fall in the kitty of BJP. more
