| Published: May 14 2016 12:02 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi (File Photo) Related News As the Narendra Modi government completes two years in a few days’ time it could well be asked: Has it been two years since the BJP stopped campaigning and started governing — really It’s not a rhetorical question Take a look at the images of the last few days in the run-up to the two-year anniversary The prime minister deep in the heat and grime of assembly poll battle comparing Kerala to Somalia provoking a reaction much like the one he did last year in Bihar where his barb about Nitish Kumar’s DNA lent ballast to an entire campaign from the other side Bihari vs Bahari The NDA government forced to retreat by the Supreme Court and the floor test in Uttarakhand where it has been accused of trying to topple yet another government in an Opposition-ruled state The Modi government on the offensive against the Congress in Parliament over the controversial AgustaWestland helicopter deal armed with rhetoric but without the homework to match the shouting These images are eloquent They speak of a government at the Centre that is yet to pronounce the battle over and call an end to the hostilities Two years later it’s still 2014 To an extent the crowded election calendar in this country demands a constant battle-readiness from parties And a healthy antagonism between government and opposition is a feature of a robust democracy But the BJP’s unending bellicosity is about more than just that As the party that rules the Centre it needs to draw crucial distinctions Even as it faces off with the Congress and other Opposition parties in state assembly arenas it must at the same time engage them in a conversation in Parliament to push its own agenda especially in the Rajya Sabha where it lacks a majority In the last two years however there is little evidence of attempted political outreach and even less of a follow-through By all accounts the BJP appears to be allowing its slogan of “Congress-mukt Bharat” to get the better of its dialogue with other parties and its own judgement and even push it onto constitutionally slippery ground as in Uttarakhand It is true that Prime Minister Modi shoulders the burden of being his party’s lead campaigner But both he and his party must be mindful of the fact that his no-holds-barred immersion in the heated poll battle also singes his office — the PM must in all circumstances be a figure larger than the leader of his own party and he must be seen to be so too The BJP must ask itself why two years into government it looks angry and resentful — a polariser and a settler of old scores rather than the party elected with a large mandate to break with the past and build anew For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

change in leadership in the Congress and the Samajwadi Party in the context of the Uttar Pradesh assembly pollsa similarthough less obviousmetamorphosis has taken place in the BJP as well Fifty-four-year-old BJP president Nitin Gadkari took control of the campaign and entrusted the nitty-gritty of the election strategy to the rehabilitated RSS pracharak Sanjay Joshi The partys central leadership in Delhi was out of the loop The choice of candidates for some 272 assembly seats was made not on the basis of recommendations from local satrapssuch as Murli Manohar JoshiKalraj Mishra and Rajnath Singhbut on an internal assessment of the winnability of contenders for the party ticket A Gadkari aide who is barely 30 was entrusted with the selection of candidates for each seat on the basis of his data on caste and other local factors Equally significant was the fact that the big names of the BJP central leadership were largely missing from the campaign trail Narendra Modis absence raised eyebrows He had absented himself because of his old quarrel with Sanjay Joshi Even BJP patriarch LK Advaniwho is accustomed to being acknowledged as a star attractionwas not very visible Advani seemed peeved that there was no great demand from the local units for his presence A fiery orator like Sushma Swaraj was showcased only fleetingly Uma Bharti was projected as the partys prospective chief minister by the Delhi mediabut the reality on the ground in UP was quite different EventuallyBharti failed to deliver as many seats to the BJP from Bundelkhand as it had hoped It is reflective of the low-key BJP campaign in UP that the biggest crowd-puller at party rallies was a man who is not even officially in the partyBabu Singh Kushwaha The discredited former BSP leader was much in demand since he pulled in the crowds; his OBC followers believed that he had been unfairly targeted Clearlythe low-keylocalised campaign in this UP election worked no better for the party than its earliermore aggressive national strategy in 2007 The party won almost the same number of seats as the last time The only comfort the BJP can take from the outcome is that it won the bronze medalgetting a slightly higher tally than the Congresswhich had hyped its hopes because of Rahul Gandhis intensive campaignwith over 150 rallies across the state On Tuesdaythe BJP lost much of its initial euphoria when early counting trends did not match the final results Howeverthe BJP can take heart from the humiliating defeat of the Congress in UP despite the all-out effort made by Gandhi At the same timeit must introspect whyunlike the SPit failed to harness the anti-Mayawati mood to its own advantage In UPthere was largely a polarisation of the electorate between the SP and the BSP and the two national parties played only a bit role The UP results are not a happy one for the BJPbut it has much to celebrate elsewherewhere it proved the pollsters wrong In Punjabthe BJP has a propaganda edge even if it has returned to power riding on the shoulders of the Akali Dalwith its own strike rate less than that of its ally In UttarakhandBC Khanduri put up a sterling fighteven though months earlier the state had been written off for the BJPowing to the misgovernance and corruption of former CM Ramesh Pokhriyal In GoaBJPs Manohar Parrikar profited from the disillusionment with the scandal-scarred Congress government Howeverthe BJPs gung-ho calculations that a poor showing by the Congress in this round of assembly polls would lead to early general elections may be off the mark Self-serving UPA allies and supporters may have no long-term interest in backing a falling starbut the endgame is still a long way off With the SP set to form the government in UP on its own steamthe Congress has avoided the Hobsons choice of whether or not it should extend support to Mulayam Singh Yadavs partyan issue which has been discussed ad nauseum over the last few days If Mamata Banerjee were to pull out of UPA 2the BSPnow in a much-chastened mood after its defeatcould be viewed as a possible lifeline by the UPA The more immediate impact of the assembly elections is likely to be on the presidential election in July when the UPA will no longer be in a position to gets its own candidate elected and will per force have to settle for a compromise choice [email protected] For
