Wall Street Journal's opinion piece says BJP is world's most important political party|Oneindia News

According to an opinion piece by the author Walter Russell Mead that has been published in the Wall Street Journal, the BJP is the world's most important party…and it may also be the least understood.

The Wall Street Journal piece read and I quote “"India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is, from the standpoint of American national interests, the most important foreign political party in the world.

It may also be the least understood”.

The BJP, after successive victories in 2014, and 2019 is also headed for a repeat victory in 2024, the publication stated, adding that, India is emerging both as a leading economic power and, along with Japan, as the linchpin of American strategy in the Indo-Pacific.

It added that for the forseeable future, the BJP will be calling shots in the country ..and without whose efforts American efforts to balance rising Chinese powers are likely to fall short.

The author..Russell Mead believes that BJP is poorly understood because it grew out of a political and cultural history unfamiliar to most non-Indians.

The BJP's electoral dominance reflects the success of a once obscure and marginal social movement of national renewal based on efforts by generations of social thinkers and activists to chart a distinctively 'Hindu path' to modernization.

The author further mentions and I quote again “"Like the Muslim Brotherhood, the BJP rejects many ideas and priorities of Western liberalism even as it embraces key features of modernity.

Like the Chinese Communist Party, the BJP hopes to lead a nation with more than a billion people to become a global superpower.

Like the Likud Party in Israel, the BJP combines a basically pro-market economic stance with populist rhetoric and traditionalist values, even as it channels the anger of those who've felt excluded and despised by a cosmopolitan, Western-focused cultural and political elite”.
