to the overwhelming noise of the bigger upheavals elsewhere Sowhats the newsif the rise and rise of regional leaders is an old story This election provides further evidence that the days of the very

fewer regional leaders capable of winning their states for it than even the BJP New evidence that this distantDelhi-centric management of national politics no longer works also comes from the plight

support to the UPApresenting a cynicalunprincipled and opportunistic third front alternative under Mayawatileft its voters in West Bengal and Kerala totally confused But the bigger damage was strategic: it helped the Congress and the Trinamool discover each other as natural allies in West Bengal That one blunder led to the Lefts total loss of clout in the 2009 Parliament electionsand now

This is a fundamental shift in our politics Delhi-based leaders of the CPMfor examplecould argue that their decision to pull out support to the UPA was principled and dictated by ideology But anybody

December 1984and Sonia Gandhis UPA in May 2009 In both cases an aspirational electorate brought back an incumbent to power on a promise of optimistic change A fortnight from the second anniversary of UPA 2 you can also begin to see parallels in the pace with which the Congress of 1984 squandered its mandateand the UPA now Rajiv Gandhi was undone by his partys old guardwho he had taken on frontally a bit too early in the day He had not yet prepared his partyor public opinionfor the break from the past that he articulated so bravely in his speech at the Bombay AICC session (in 1985) When the formidable immune system of entrenched old interests struck backhe did not have the timesupport base or firepower to fight back The move downhill began just as his government entered its third yearand gathered momentum on way to the 1989 elections UPA 2 began its decline even before it was two For oneit had brought along its Bofors from UPA 1the telecom scam But to call the telecom scam primarily responsible for UPA 2s predicament would be to oversimplify the case Because in politicsa scandal or an event can spin so out of control as to destroy a strongelected government and a popularcredible leader only if the political ground for that has been prepared bywhat elsepoor politics and leadership Rajiv Gandhis politics started going downhill with his pandering to the Muslim Right on the Shah Bano judgment that alienated moderate Muslims within his own partyliberals among his votersand gave the Hindu Right a cause From then to Boforsand the shilanyas at Ayodhya to please the devout Hindus insteadit was one long series of political blunders with no redemption or recovery UPA 2s blunders are of a different natureand a direct result of fundamentally flawed politics This government was voted back to power by a resurgent India making a bold and widely hailed move from the politics of grievance to the politics of aspirationsomething this newspaper also underlined on the day after the results in a front-page editorial (Hands down,May 17,2009).
But it would seem that,once elected,everything-is-wrong-where-are-we-headed discourse. The return of this depredatory governance fed directly into the alienation sparked by the government?Commonwealth Games and Adarsh (though the Centre had almost nothing to do with it),modernisation, It was shy of even sending a thank-you card of some kind to those who had voted it back to power. In 2009,the UPA won almost every single city in a rapidly urbanising India.it sat silently as one urban agency after the other became more corrupt.
Ask anybody in Delhi who has to take an MCD permit to build something or get a certificate from the DDA.a driving licence, You are first not told what you can build, In Mumbai,no apartment buyer knows how much square-footage he is paying for and what he will get.

No argument. Nor had I,until late last week.separation of powers and responsibilities within our institutions, Will you create an institution that? Do you want an institution that will override the judiciary and Parliament,have the magisterial powers of search and seizure and,will pretty much appoint its own successors and be answerable to none,particularly as even the judges of the Supreme Court will quake in their robes before they hear complaints against the Lokpal as it would also have the powers to investigate complaints against them (there is a concession however: such investigations will not be carried out on behalf of the Lokpal by a police officer below the rank of a superintendent of police)? Finally.
But please do read the text of the bill (available at http://www.indiaagainstcorruption. The Musharraf reference is brought in with great care.democracy? that was ? by him,obviously men with ? It worked well for nine years, revolted. But the kind.

First of all, Where will the rest come from? Your guess is as good as mine.unimpeachable integrity?of course, If the idea of this bill is to take away all discretion.
it does that very effectively.so many of the rest,generally innocent Indians,may live in that terror as well.or even national wealth saved from being stolen,the more you collect. Read on further. If you report on another citizen and he is caught and convicted,and/ or the money saved from being swindled as your reward. We will.
therefore,sneaking on neighbours and family for pecuniary gain.this may see so many Indians in jail that real estate companies,may find it profitable to diversify into building new prisons all over the country. The bill plays nicely on the current sab chor hain mood. So if a company is found to benefit from a corrupt practice,five times the loss it is supposed to have caused the public (it could have been 5 x 1.the Lokpal members will be deemed police officers,have the powers of seizure and search without going to a magistrate ? have protection of contempt of court law.

Sure enough, Arjun Singh was too layered and fascinating a political figure to describe in one newspaper article. But one of the more interesting aspects of his personality was how seriously he took the media. Friend or foe,he never refused a journalist a favour.at the same time, During his full stint as HRD minister in UPA 1,this newspaper,and this editor,we saw his move to spring OBC reservations on the entire higher education system without any preparation as some kind of a too-clever-by-half ploy to unsettle the prime minister.
that I received an early morning phone call from him. he said. I was starting to tell him we were all so sorry that Ramnathji was no longer with us and that we all missed him greatly. But he had no patience. he asked,Only because I discovered that within the Congresseven at senior-most levelsthere were people who were in such a hurry to junk Rajiv Gandhis ideals?Arjun Singhji, I asked?s ideals from a party led by his own wife and son? Nonot that It is just that none of the others was close enough to Rajiv to know what he really dreamed for India?as chief minister of Madhya Pradesh,accompanied Rajiv deep into the countryside,where we lay on cots in small inspection bungalows under star-filled skies and exchanged our ideas for the future of India?One thing I will say about Rajiv, he said His sense of patriotism was always palpable?
one thing I would never doubt was his loyalty to the Gandhi family. But that is what also made him so angry,as the ultimate prize,the prime ministership, Then,on his ? and he presumed the Gandhi family? favourite issues, And that too by politicians he did not consider half as sharp as himself.angered him in his last years.
His party,his friends as well as detractors will all miss him. So will we journalists for whom he was a fine example of the traditional Congress politician so accessible, Lok Sabha,it has looked like more fun than the one-sided matches being played in the World Cup preliminaries. Also,while the first week of the World Cup has still not changed any equations in terms of the eventual favourites,the first week of a functioning Parliament for nearly six months has made one thing dramatically clear: that the election of 2014 is no longer a done deal. Opening exchanges showed a new energy in the opposition,particularly the BJP.

on the other hand,exclusionist,negative agendas.exposing its disastrous complex of ideological laziness,conflicting ambitions and political impatience.some damage is done.National Interest has to revisit its long-held theory that an Indian national election is now like a best-of-nine-sets tennis match ? whoever wins five of these will take the trophy. These nine ?Rajasthan.
Madhya Pradesh, Together, That 200 is the new 272 in our Lok Sabha now,as you would presume that the same coalition would collect some more seats out of the remaining 192,and you would be a fool not to acknowledge,at least to yourself,that this will be a much closer election than you had expected it to be.because it does not exist in Kerala, So where do the UPA and NDA,more accurately.
Take the Congress first. Its entire politics is built around loyalty to one family. Which,because it keeps the party together. But should it also continue to mean that the party will build no other,particularly regional chieftains who will conquer their states for it,just like YSR,Hooda and Sheila Dikshit had done in the last election?s voters would have been born after the assassination of Indira Gandhi.an idea Indira Gandhi junked in 1969.
similarly,should know from its Bihar experience that its original, In a state with a sizeable Muslim vote,does a mea culpa with Chandrababu Naidu,can it put together a coalition that will once again begin to look like a winner,particularly if the election does turn out to be that best-of-nine-sets match.therefore,bury the old politics of hatred,final and convincing move from its outdated politics of grievance to India? Thank God for politics February 19.
in their near-unanimous judgment,the prime minister came off poorly.and that is particularly so in terms of his public persona,is the man you get. He is never one to sound assertive,or aggressive,never one to make broad-brush statements. His style is like that of a professor caught in the complex detail of a problem rather than that of an expansive Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
