News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThere are many ways of interpreting the Gujarat election results The important thing for BJP is not to draw the wrong conclusions from a very fractious mandate This is because Gujarat has well and truly set the pace for 2019 polls From hereon all the Assembly polls will cumulatively shape the 2019 verdict The stakes cannot be higher This is precisely why the BJP and Narendra Modi must avoid falling into the trap of populism to insure against future shocks There will be a lot of temptation for Modi to take a populist turn given the fact that Rahul Gandhi seems to have revived Congress’ fortunes somewhat riding on a deeply populist campaign that pivoted on 1980s era failed socialist politics The Congress president issued cheques that he possibly cannot encash promised sops that are a fiscal impossibility made a string of irresponsible claims and delivered platitudes characterised by ambiguity and lack of either policy direction or action plan Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Rajnath Singh Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley after Gujarat poll victory PTI Yet the fact remains that Congress has won 77 seats (80 if you add Congress-backed candidates) Its vote share rose north to 414 percent from 3893 percent in 2012 resulting in a net gain of 16 seats On the surface this suggests that at least a fair percentage of voters were swayed by his claims and platitudes Politics at the end of the day is perception not reality Modi could be justified in thinking that continuing with the reforms process would be too risky and in order to protect his flanks he may feel the urge to ratchet up government spending towards doles and entitlements And that would be a wrong conclusion with a terrible price to pay India cannot afford to return to the era of doles and entitlements that characterised the tenure of UPA 2 and brought the Indian economy to its knees Gandhi might feel enthused to carry on with his brand of politics because notwithstanding his recent gains he remains an unimaginative mediocre leader He would no doubt interpret this result as a green signal for an even more populist campaign and in Rajasthan or Madhya Pradesh next year We might see a vigorous clamour for more fiscally irresponsible demands But Modi shoud know better A cursory data analysis will reflect that despite all the barbs from Rahul Gandhi on GST voters most affected by it have stayed firmly loyal to Modi Diamond and textile traders in Surat who had declared war on BJP due to GST’s teething woes and had called a strike to express their anger rejected the Congress once more BJP swept 12 seats out of 12 among a chiefly Patidar community which indicates that Patidar leader Hardik Patel drew the crowds but failed to translate the support into votes It would also be pertinent to remember that Rahul Gandhi ran an intense campaign around Surat interacted with textile and diamond merchants and coined the infamous ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ for GST The results show that in nearly all the urban areas the BJP has registered massive wins over Congress Shailesh Gaikwad writes in Hindustan Times that in November Surat traders were up in arms against the BJP due to GST halving their incomes and forcing them to fill up complicated forms “But on Monday traders said they were satisfied with the steps taken by the government to reduce tax rates on several items and simplify filing processes in the run up to the December polls Moreover many traders were wary of deserting the BJP which they had supported for generations and voting for the Congress” Data also shows that BJP won handsomely in urban areas of Gujarat retaining more than 57 percent of the vote share and 47 seats It is in rural Gujarat where Congress performed well and made the fight a closely contested one The party won 68 seats with a vote share of 458 percent which is one percentage point lower than BJP’s in rural areas The curious thing is BJP lost 14 seats in rural Gujarat with a higher vote share than the Congress whereas the grand old party bagged 17 seats BJP’s overall vote share was up since 2012 to 499 percent – a change of 21 percent while Congress’s 433 percent vote share was a jump of 44 percent What explains the curious fact that BJP’s vote share went up from 2012 yet the party bagged 16 less seats (from 115 to 99) The answer lies in the fact that BJP’s votes were less productive and not optimally spread Where it won it won big and wastefully so Whereas Congress registered narrow wins in many rural areas This is one of the curiosities of the first-past-the-post voting system This means that BJP shouldn’t be too worried about its results because its so-called disruptive reforms were accepted by voters more so in places where its disruption was the highest Conversely BJP’s focus should be on mitigating the agrarian distress but not through doles and entitlements of the Congress model but through a more thorough implementation of the Gujarat model that as economist Arvind Panagariya reminds us resulted in “proportion of population living below the poverty line in Gujarat” falling from “325% in 2004-05 to 17% in 2011-12 The same trend with approximately similar proportionate decline was seen separately in rural and urban poverty” Modi should therefore draw the right lessons from the Gujarat results Agrarian crisis must be addressed but not at the cost of reforms Voters despite what the Congress thinks are not fools Written by Yubaraj Ghimire | Published: August 19 2014 3:37 am Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hope that Nepal’s Maoists would leave their history of violence behind and help deliver the constitution mirrors the collective wish of the Nepalese people now fading That Modi chose to mention it from the ramparts of Delhi’s Red Fort on August 15 sent a powerful message across the border Modi issued no appeal to Indian Maoists to come forward for dialogue and shun violence but he gave enough indication that the success of Nepal’s example would influence the course of Indian Maoism Indian Maoists have called their Nepalese comrades — once part of the larger campaign in South Asia under the common banner of CCOMPOSA (Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia) — “revisionists” and “betrayers” If they do come to a peace process it will be more under domestic compulsions and their own calculations than inspiration from Nepal’s Maoists But Modi’s consistency and focus on Nepal has put Nepal’s political actors in a tight spot Coinciding with the expression of Indian concern at the highest level European and other Western donors have scaled down their support to the campaign for ethnicity- and caste-based federalism That alone however does not guarantee the constitution will be delivered on time “It will not invite a political disaster if the final draft of the constitution is not ready by the January 22 deadline” said Sher Bahadur Deuba former PM and senior leader of the ruling Nepali Congress Given the speculation about the health of PM Sushil Koirala Deuba is being seen as a likely successor Thus the failure to have the draft ready by January 22 will be to his disadvantage But the prevailing uncertainty about the government’s leadership and its impact on the coalition is not the onlyfactor raising doubts aboutthe constitution During his informal chat with Nepalese politicians Modi had even suggested that they should not aim at having a complete constitution at one go His suggestion was that the constitution “can be amended and future aspirations accommodated” But it is not simply constitution-writing but institutionalising radical changes that continue to divide the political field The Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M) that led the agenda of change is the third-largest party now with less credibility and clout Supporting a parliamentary system that it fought with arms for 10 years will not only be a major loss of face for the UCPN-M but it will also pave the way for its demise as a radical communist outfit The Nepali Congress which leads the government is demoralised by the PM’s health and divided as well “We will campaign for a Hindu Rashtra Nepal” said Haribol Bhattarai a senior party leader The Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) with almost the same numbers in the cabinet as the Nepali Congress has been taking a public stance against the government “They should either behave like a government orquit” says Shekhar Koirala The problem of Nepal’s politics is the power-centric agreements among leaders and parties for the last eight years With parties divided and agreements not honoured its likely impact on the constitution is not difficult to guess
