It took almost 4 years for Indians to realize that Narendra Modi who became Prime Minister of India in 2014 has brought nationwide doom and gloom to the country.
Now there are multiple campaigns running simultaneously to get rid of Modi and his party BJP in order to restore normalcy in India.
Major political parties and politicians – including leaders from Modi’s BJP – in India have joined forces to dethrone Modi. They believe that Modi is running a secret anti-national project to completely destroy India while under his rule the country is facing the worst socio-economic crisis.
In an ongoing RMN Poll, only 18% people say they are satisfied with the work of Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi.
While Modi has completed nearly 4 years of his 5-year term as PM of India, many believe that he has brought the country on the brink of disaster.
In a new campaign launched under the hashtag #ModiMuktBharat, the political groups have decided to unite in order to free India from Modi’s grip. Opposition party Congress today joined a call given by a Hindu politician Raj Thackeray for ‘Modi Mukt Bharat’. In the past, Modi has been demanding Congress-Mukt Bharat.

Congress also has launched a Twitter poll with the question: “Do you think BJP’s alliance partners are as disappointed as the citizens are with PM Modi’s jumlas (lies)?”
Along with joining hands with other political parties, Congress president Rahul Gandhi also urged his party colleagues to put all their differences aside and work together to ensure victory for the party in the future elections.
A few days ago, Sonia Gandhi – the former Congress president and mother of present Congress chief Rahul Gandhi – said that her party is ready to have alliances with other parties to ensure that BJP is defeated in the next election (Lok Sabha election 2019) and India is restored to a democratic, inclusive, secular, tolerant, and economically progressive path.
Attacking the Modi government, Mrs. Gandhi said that in the past almost 4 years of Modi government, the institutions that are at the foundation of our democracy have come under systematic assault—Parliament itself, the judiciary, media, and civil society.
She also said that investigative agencies have been let loose against political opponents. “An all-pervasive atmosphere of fear and intimidation has been created. Liberal, secular and democratic traditions are being wantonly damaged,” Mrs. Gandhi said.
A former minister in India and rebel BJP leader Yashwant Sinha has launched a new political outfit National Forum to expose the crime and corruption in the Modi government.
Distressed politicians from BJP (including an actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha) as well as opposition parties expressed willingness to join National Forum.
Although it is positioned as a non-political group, it will campaign against Modi government with the aim to defeat Modi and his party BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
