Updated: April 1, Pawar locked herself up in her room and hanged herself. as a friend, It was initially headlined,What is the BJP thinking (later changed to Coal versus Coalition as I wasnt fully confident I had the answerNational InterestIEgoogl/53xi4) As you reflect on the partys approach and performance over the past weeksparticularly during this budget sessionyou are tempted to repeat the same headline But only by replacing thinking with another verb that sort of rhymes Id rather avoid thathoweverand not only because you risk sounding like Mani Shankar Aiyarbut also because if you talk to BJP leaders individuallythey come across as articulatefocusedsorted out But thenthe question remains Why do they become such an unruly mob when a Parliament session begins And unruly not only in the sense that they disrupt Parliamentwrite off entire sessions and take pride in itbut also in not knowing what to look like: as victims of some kindor victors of another parliamentary battle where decibels triumph over numbers But unruly even for their own good It is one thing to curseabuse and haul the government over the coals and worsebut to block legislation that you fundamentally agree with Worseblock populist new billswhere you have boasted how your wonderful amendments have been accepted and which you can never afford to be seen to oppose What if the UPA were to now really promulgate the Right to Food and the new Land Acquisition Bills (with both of which this newspaper has arguments)and defy you to block them again in the monsoon session It will be impossible for the BJP to oppose thembecause they may sometimes sound silly but we do not have sufficient evidence to conclude they are suicidal Sothis is how the battle in Parliament could unfold hereon: the UPA survives the budget session that ends soonthough unproductively It will open the monsoon session in August with the two populist bills and nobody would dare bring it down until these pass And by that timeit may be too lateso they move on to the last session of a fullfive-year Parliament in winter The question againtherefore What is the BJPwell…king INTRIGUINGLYwhile the BJP central leadership has been acting like members of a furious mob with no specific leader or agendatheir state leaders are steadfastly focused on the task at hand Shivraj Singh ChouhanRaman Singh and Vasundhara Raje on winning their state electionsand Narendra Modi on repositioning himself as an all-Indianpro-growthpro-business modernistand an OBC leader These state leaders know what their objective isand how to get there But the national leadership is caught in a messy game that sports reporters often describe as a goalmouth melee Rememberwhen everybody seems to be swinging their hockey sticks in a swarm of attackers not knowing where the ball isbut hoping somehow that one of them will connect and become a goal-scoring star That analogy (and for oncea non-cricketing one) works because BJP leaders cannot be faulted for having that next-to-the-goalmouth feeling The UPA is down on its kneesthere is a new scam or crisis every day Its fighting its way out desperately from a self-inflicted three-year policy paralysis It has no major state leaders Its last remaining allies are restless and exploring left and right The obvious competence and solidity of a few of its senioras well as some youngerministers cannot make up for the basic incoherence of its cabinet and the colossal incompetence of some: the law minister being not the only examplejust the latest one If you were a senior BJP leaderyou could believe that after a decade in the oppositionyour time is now coming The problem isit hasnt come yet An election still has to be won Surelyyou can count on the UPA to lose it But that would be lazyand dangerous Becauseunlike the NDAthe UPA can lose the next election and still return to power The simple or complex arithmetic of todays national politics is that what is 140 for the Congress will be a minimum of 185 for the BJP Sothere is work to be done for the BJP THE partys leadershoweverare behaving as if that election has already been won and so infighting for the top prize has already started It is a touchingly funny spectaclewhere every senior leader wants to be loved and anointed like Atal Bihari Vajpayeebut is beginning to speak the language of Modi of 2007if not 2002 Thiswhen Modi himself is moderating his image or is at least trying to do so earnestly hoping to become more widely acceptedlike Vajpayee See some recent examples: Sushma Swaraj wanting the army to bring 10 Pakistani heads in revenge for the one they took away Rajnath Singh now demanding India send Pakistans high commissioner back because of Sarabjit Singhs unfortunate killing Thisironicallywithin 24 hours of Varun Gandhi proclaiming him the new Vajpayee He was mostly in the establishment in the years when the man in whose image he wishes to be seen held his nerve through so many provocationsincluding Kargil and the Kandahar hijack The only time he decided on such an extreme measure and that too reluctantly was after the Parliament attack But these are more impatient times This is a fascinating situation The man most distant from Vajpayee in ideology and style is trying to sound less unlike him All othersrelatively moderateare becoming shrillerangry and impossible as he used to be Maybe they are appealing first to the faithfulboth the committed voters and Nagpurand the competition for now is Modibecause they believe the leadership issue is not settled So before they can hope to be like Vajpayeethey have to look like Modiand find the approval of both the hard loyalists and the grand viziers in Nagpur When you are after the big prizeanother wasted Parliament session means nothing Furtherit doesnt help that in the party top brasswhere the president counts for very littlethe first among these equals is also a candidate for prime minister Usuallywhen a party believes power is within its graspit responds with a sense of quiet anticipation and preparation That is how the BJP was in 1996-97 When you think you are winningyou become calm and constructive Right nowthey look so bitteras if they have been denied power for the third time alreadyand unfairly so Somebody has to tell them Manmohan Singh will not resignhowsoever desperately they ask him to do so It might help if they persuaded Sonia Gandhiinsteadto ask him to do so Butseriouslyblocking so much legislation and Parliament time in anger is like taking revenge on the people of India for not voting you to power twice in succession That is hardly how you convince them to make you lucky the third time [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
