Ram Madhav: The man who scripted BJP’s historic win in Assam
Though BJP leaders were hopeful about pulling off their maiden victory in Assam, the extent of it has left even the most optimistic of them pleasantly surprised, so to say.
And the man of the moment, clearly, is Ram Madhav, party general secretary, who carefully scripted the BJP’s spectacular win in the north-east state.
“There was a curiosity about Assam elections across the country. The result is very significant and it is a clear message for the whole country and it has come at the right moment,” he said, soon after the results were declared.
The historic win in Assam marked the culmination of two years of groundwork that comprised artful negotiations and stitching up of difficult alliances by Madhav.
Coming from erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, Madhav has shown that he can adapt with ease to varying cultures like those of J&K and Assam, grasp the nuances and work with them, or around them as the need be.
