Counting day is one of the most important days for a political leader. It is the day of judgment, that will determine the course of action for a leader and a party for the next five years atleast.

Thus, it is natural for any leader to be active and restless as the votes are being counted. Often, leaders are glued to their screens, workers and aides are entering the room with latest trends and results.

A notable exception is Shri Narendra Modi.

Is he glued to the TV screen? No!

Is his room full of aides and supporters, bustling with latest trends and results? No!

Then what is he doing?

By all accounts, it is business as usual for him. His daily routine continues without any hitch.

On 16th May 2014, when the rest of the world was seeing the way India votes, Shri Modi, the PM candidate of the winning party and the central figure in the entire campaign was continuing with his routine. He answered the first telephone call, from Shri Rajnath Singh and then went to meet his mother and Shri Keshubhai Patel to seek their blessings.

Its been like this in 2002, 2007 and 2012 as well.

For a man who never made high office the sole aim of his life, an election result day is just like any other day. Whatever the people have in store, will be accepted with humility.

"Jaago Bharat Ke Laal" — How PM Modi motivated citizens to keep up the fight against Article 370

On 5th August 2019, in a historic move, Article 370 and Article 35 A were abrogated. This led to complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country.

The temporary Articles, which were in place for almost 70 odd years, denied rights to the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. Both these Articles were a huge hurdle in development of the region. Abrogation of these Articles fulfilled the dream of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and countless citizens.

Since the early 90s, Shri Narendra Modi had raised his voice against the Article 370 and motivated people to keep up their fight against it. He spread awareness how the Abrogation of these Articles would benefit our nation.

Bhavna Thakur, a Karyakarta from Gujarat reminisced the time when Shri Modi, during the organisational days, used to discuss about the Article 370. In a video, she said, "When Modi Ji used to take lectures during the organisational days, he would tell us a lot about the nation as well as the Article 370. He talked about the difficulties we had to face due to the Article 370 and how its abrogation will be good for the nation."

Smt. Thakur further said that to motivate all the Karyakartas, Shri Modi even used to sing a song.

"The song is in Gujarati. It goes like: Kashmir Bharat Nu Kevay, Eto Koi Thi Na Chhinvay, Jando Farki Rahio Chhe Hindustan No, Jaago Jaago Re Bharat Maa Na Laal, which means wake up all Indians, no one can take Kashmir from us. It is an integral part of our nation and will always be," recalled Bhavna Thakur.
