the BSP has not put up a candidate and the AIMIM withdrew even before the nominations started The constituency falls in the urban part of the district Hence the dynamics are different from those of the rural constituencies where the riots mainly took place A constituency visit showed that while the communal issue is important caste and political economy are also crucial factors in the election Apart from the BJP all parties both in their posters and rallies are appealing for votes on the plank of development Muslims constitute roughly over a third of the electorate followed by Banias and Brahmins The other significant castes are Pal Jat Thakur and Tyagi There is also a large number of Dalits The dominant perception in the constituency is that the main contest is between the SP and the BJP with Ajit Singh’s RLD trying to play spoiler for the saffron party The desperation of the BJP to win is evident from its attempts to stoke the existing communal divide It has invoked “the embers that spread” from the violence of 2013 that “made Narendra Modi the prime minister” and brought in leaders to campaign such as Sanjeev Baliyan Hukum Singh Suresh Rana and Sangeet Som all of whom were named in cases related to the Muzaffarnagar riots and some Central ministers The BJP’s posters ask for votes for saving the honour of “bahu-beti” and there have been threats of holding a panchayat over two cases of “rape” in the region However some local workers of the BJP are not happy; they feel that the riots destroyed farming business small industry and Hindu-Muslim relations Moreover the fact that the candidates of both the BJP and SP are Banias — the latter is the son of the late MLA Chitranjan Swaroop — has split the community vote between the two parties Equally important members of the business community seem somewhat disillusioned with PM Narendra Modi and feel achhe din have not come They point to the lawlessness prevailing under the SP but also blame the BJP for making false promises and not doing anything for local business resulting in the “slump in the market” Mayawati is remembered for maintaining strict law and order and many would have preferred the absent BSP Thus apart from caste solidarity economic concerns and law and order seem to be important concerns in shaping the voting decisions of the trading community While the upper castes are supportive of the BJP a survey of the Jat colonies in the city indicates that a substantial number could move towards the RLD They feel neglected and want to send a message to the BJP that they should not be taken for granted But there are two more important reasons that suggest that socio-economic concerns rather than Hindutva are shaping their voting preferences There is a desire to revive the RLD under their “own” leader Jayant Chaudhary son of Ajit Singh and bring the once-powerful farmer community which has become marginalised back into politics rather than support a party in which they could never occupy important positions Second most feel that under Modi both kisan and kashtkar are suffering which indicates their unhappiness that the Central government is paying little attention to agriculture At the same time the RLD has fielded a candidate from the Pal community which is generally perceived as being pro-BJP This has divided the Pals and it is expected that their support would be equally split between the BJP and RLD something that has worried local BJP leaders In the absence of the BSP the Dalit vote remains fluid and the community is being wooed by all parties But they do not seem to be keen to support the SP Muslims are not keen to support the Peace Party despite it fielding a Qureshi a section that constitutes the majority among Muslims here and raising the issue of Muslim backwardness Nor do they seem inclined towards the Congress whose candidate Salman Sayeed was accused of inciting communal passions during the riots A majority of Muslims who constitute the biggest single voting bloc in the assembly constituency appeared to prefer the SP which would ensure security from communal forces and were not concerned about the caste/ community of the candidate The BJP is hoping that the Muslim vote will split between the Congress and SP — it remains to be seen if this happens but it does not seem likely The withdrawal of Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM candidate signifies the marginal position of Muslim parties in communally charged areas where the issue of insecurity combines with development The campaign on the ground provides a number of significant insights: That there are strategic limits to communally charged Hindutva politics without development which explains the desperation of the BJP; that Muslims prefer a party that provides security which might help the SP retain the seat Equally important is the new electoral equation among the Jats which is significantly different from that during the communally charged atmosphere of 2014 due to the re-emergence of their economic and political interests The RLD’s focus on kisan and kashtkar hints at an attempt to create a broader caste alliance of the Jats with other OBC and Dalit castes significant in light of the attempt by the JD(U) to form a grand alliance in UP In sum the bypoll result may create fresh equations of importance for the 2017 elections The writer is retired professor Centre for Political Studies (CPS) JNU Delhi Co-written by Sajjan Kumar PhD scholar at CPS For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Updated: February 25 2015 5:15 am Rahul’s inner circle seemed full of people who were so concerned about expiating their guilt at being privileged that they refused to see the ways in which India was changing Related News Deep metaphysical truths about politics often emerge in a hyper-politicised state like Bihar I remember a conversation with a group of Nitish Kumar supporters who were upset when he broke his alliance with the BJP One interlocutor said “Inka gunah hai ke yeh paristhiti mein aur apne mein bhed nahin kar pa rahe hain (his besetting sin is that he cannot distinguish between his circumstances and himself)” Politicians are vulnerable when they are unable to distinguish what is due to circumstances and what is due to them Instead of seeing how objective reality impinges on them they begin to think reality is an extension of their will In Nitish’s case the specific charge at the time was that he had begun to believe whatever good was happening in Bihar was due entirely to him He forgot the circumstances that allowed him a modicum of success Nitish’s first term was unusual because after decades caste polarisation had been taken off the explicit agenda His government had a wide social coalition of the top and the bottom One of the conditions of effective governance is to have a wide social coalition behind you or else some social force or the other will devour the best administrative acumen This is a deep truth A subsidiary point was that Nitish had picked all the low-hanging governance fruits The tougher decisions that Bihar needs to take on topics as diverse as land and education will require even more broad-based support The wicked challenges now facing Bihar need even broader social negotiations Bihar had precariously created the possibility of such a moment Will any political party be able to recreate it But this piece of wisdom is also relevant to the BJP and the Congress It is hard to know what the inner tensions and pressures on a politician are But Rahul Gandhi’s spectacular downfall post 2009 is a classic case of confusing circumstances with one’s own ego Much changed after 2009 The Congress forgot that in 2009 the Opposition was still weak; it was still reaping the dividends of growth; it got some benefit from standing behind Manmohan Singh who had not yet lost his sheen In fact in 2009 the Congress took some risks by going it alone in UP; Rahul got credit for that But after that it has been a free fall for which Rahul is at least as centrally responsible Three big changes were evident somewhere in the middle of the UPA’s second term First as a public persona Rahul came across as increasingly narcissistic He seemed to be increasingly closed to political realities and everything from the government to the party became an extension of his pet obsessions His narcissism was evident in the way he humiliated the prime minister by tearing up his government’s ordinance in public But the second persona he projected was victimhood Faced with scandal after scandal the standard narrative put out was that Rahul wanted to change the party and fix corruption while the old guard was hemming him in He was trying to build a virtuous party while corrupt government was another matter Nothing could be farther from the truth And in any case politics of victimhood may allow you to hold on to a sense of injured virtue but it does little to convince voters His sole political card seemed to be his own self-fulfilling belief in his good intentions; circumstances be damned The third change was more sociological The Congress pulled off the spectacular feat of being both crony capitalist and anti-business at the same time His close circle forgot that urban India was a crucial element in their 2004 victory In fact Rahul’s inner circle seemed full of people who were so concerned about expiating their guilt at being privileged that they refused to see the ways in which India was changing In some ways they forgot that just as India cannot be governed with communal polarisation it cannot be governed with class polarisation: it needs its entrepreneurs as much as its workers its farmers as much as its urban middle class This just is a sociological reality: polarisation is a pathway to paralysis Last month we saw a hint of Narendra Modi being beset by a similar confusion: his persona occluded reality Hopefully he can pull back But there is a deeper structural challenge faced by the government The BJP risks being trapped by a double cynicism Its support of the original land acquisition bill was ill considered But promulgating an ordinance in haste has cast a shadow over the BJP’s intentions It has also been put in an awkward situation where even if it makes the right changes it will be seen as a climb down It has unnecessarily given the Opposition an issue The land act needed changes But what the NDA’s ordinance proposed was a lot of subterfuge — it reeked of the same casualness that had destroyed the UPA’s credibility But just as the Congress was blindsided by who its imagined constituency was the BJP was blindsided by the thought that it needed to send swift signals to investors Not a bad thought But the government forgot that in the final analysis it will be judged by its ability to manage social contradictions: it needed to do the political hard work of building a broad social coalition Now every NGO and Opposition party is jumping on the resistance to the land acquisition bill Two dialectics are possible: the rough and tumble of opposition could produce a better bill But what is equally likely is that the government loses face and destroys its political capital It would be better off making sensible compromises that can square a triangle as it were We need a bill that can do three things: withstand legal scrutiny allow industrialisation but genuinely protect farmers and affected parties But the larger issue is this: is there a developmental model possible that can have a broad social coalition behind it Each class potentially has a veto power if mobilised sufficiently What will be the social contract that overcomes this polarisation Perhaps this is better resolved at the level of the states But the land conflict will be the test of what artful politics looks like Both the BJP and the AAP will have to be careful not to overplay their hand A precondition of governance is recognising that your own virtue and dogma are no substitutes for cross-class negotiations Many a leader has forgotten that The irony of politics is that it is often easier to take leave of your senses than it is to take a leave of absence The writer is president Centre for Policy Research Delhi and a contributing editor for ‘The Indian Express’ [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by The Indian Express | Published: August 29 2013 4:15 am Related News Both Sangh Parivar weeklies highlight the sinking feeling generated by the weakening rupee Articles by the same author in both talk about indiscriminate foreign investment and the spurt in gold imports necessitated by the assessment of the UPAs scamsters of gold as the safest bet.
