The Delhi assembly election has seen much excitement, By the time the test did take place on October 16, Vijay D. demanded Mayawati of the journalists present in the room,the BJP win even in Muslim-dominated areas How indeed The BJP which won 312 out of 403 seats increased its vote share this year to 397 percent from 147 percent in 2012 — a leap of 25 percentage points Even as poll pundits predicted ‘no wave’ and a tight contest BJP managed to almost repeat its 2014 Lok Sabha tally when it had bagged 73 out of 80 seats with a 427 percent vote share File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters Mere numbers won’t catch the larger picture The BJP won handsomely even in areas dominated by Muslims The party won six Muslim-dominated constituencies —Muzaffarnagar Deoband Saharanpur Bareilly Bijnor and Moradabad — defeatingthe so-called secular outfits like SP Congress andBSP Shaking her head Mayawati told reporters "Muslim votes have gone to the saffron party which is unacceptable" Herentire campaign was built around an attempt to consolidate her Dalit votebank and add Muslims to it Shewas admitting defeat but remained stoutly self-delusional even in admission "Muslims constitute 20 percent votes in the state and BJP did not give a single ticket to Muslims…but in Muslim-dominated seats too the results went in the BJP’s favour This is unpalatable" she said accusing BJP of manipulating EVMs Truth is unpalatable But this is not just a leader suffering from delusion Make no mistake this is one of the most profound moments in India’s electoral history and its rise as a young nation It is the moment when responding to the prime minister’s call the electorate is rejecting axiomatic notions about caste and community and is trying to join a larger narrative of hope We saw this in 2014 but this 2017 iteration is infinitely more important because it confirms the indomitable urge for a change within and without In his column for The Indian Express Pratap Bhanu Mehta captures it thus "It (BJP) has negated ossified logics of caste arithmetic to win over substantial numbers of OBCs and Dalits in addition to upper castes The unacknowledged social story in the BJP’s rise is its transformation of the rules of caste politics and aligning them to a larger narrative Almost no other party is able to tap into this transformative urge" It is this urge for transformative change that Modi understood and tapped in buthis rivals failed to identify Now let us look carefully at Modi’s words from Sunday evening The Prime Minister said he does not believe in electoral timelines and set 2022 as the date by which he wants to build a new India "I don’t live by election calculations My target is 2022 not 2019 2022 will mark 75 years of India’s independence We have five years to contribute to change India" Modi said during his speech before party workers and BJP parliamentary board members It sounds audacious when a politician says he doesn’t live by elections It would be easy too tempting to dismiss this statement as rhetoric Butthe Opposition and his critics have been making the same mistake so far The simple truth that eludes those still in denial about BJP and Modi’s ascendancy is this: Agendas and narratives can bring electoral dividends only up to a point in such a huge heterogeneous multi-ethnic multi-faith democracy such as ours Decisive mandates of the kind Modi-led BJP is regularly notching up would have been impossible if the electorate at large not believed him as a "change agent" Modi is perceived not just as the leader of a political party but a catalyst for change who is willing to take hard seemingly unpopular decisions He is the first leader to take banks to the unbanked make modern fuel accessible for impoverished rural women build toilets in their homes bring them within the insurance perimeter and give loans to rural youths In acolumn for The Times of India MJ Akbar writes "In 2015-16 UP alone took 3345382 loans worth Rs 12275 crores In the next year 2860243 collateral-free loans worth Rs 10755 crores were sanctioned for the state This money moreover did not go into unstable or punctured pockets; it went into bank accounts and began to prove to the poor the efficacy of a parallel programme Jan Dhan" As Modi goes about building the blocks of a nation and takes "garibi hatao" in its most literal sense Hindus and Muslims alike are believing in him For far too long the language of India’s electoral politics has been dominated by faux secularism The scale and sweep of BJP’s victory in UP shows that Muslims too now realise that Modi is at least doing something They are willing to give him a chance Muslim youth are especially not willing to be trapped into their identities or be subjected to the fear of majoritarianism that characterises our secular politics To quote Akbar again "Muslims can see for themselves that Mudra loans or insurance or LPG are as available to them as anyone else on the basis of poverty and not faith They can see now that the myths circulated about the PM in 2014 were lies designed for election" Therefore when Modi says "The poor of the nation has left the mentality of liking somebody only because he has been given something The poor wants to progress by the dint of their hard labour He says you create an opportunity for me I will work hard and grow" critics and Opposition should listen to his words carefully His speech on Sunday was also marked by an inclusive approach and a call for humility Fears have already been raised about how BJP’s UP mandate may be "dangerous" for Muslims Modi reminded karyakartas and leaders present on the occasion that "governments are formed by majority but run with consensus" and that it is "also for those who voted for it and also those who did not For those who walked along with us and those who faced us" Using the banyan tree as a metaphor the prime minister said when a tree is endowed with fruits of victory it must bend more with humility Modi is speaking in a new political language for a new India Unfortunately the Opposition is still stuck in the trappings of past New Delhi: The belief that China is emerging as a new global hegemon and the world is hurtling towards Chinese unipolarity is misplaced as it lacks the wherewithal of the US which remains a pre-eminent power says former foreign secretary Shyam Saran File image of Shyam Saran Reuters According to Saran whose new book "How India Sees The World — Kautilya to the 21st Century" was launched on Wednesday night by former prime minister Manmohan Singh longstanding narratives of China as a pre-eminent Asian and global power and its projection at the centre of global trade through history are mostly "contrived" and "imagined" "It is interesting how successful China has been in convincing the world that a China-centric world is inevitable Many people say it is better to acknowledge it rather than trying to confront it because it is not worth trying to confront it" Saran told former National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon during a discussion on the book He said this notion had gained credence due to "manufactured" history of Chinese dominance over the centuries Saran rejected outright the possibility of a hegemonic world order saying challenges like climate change and international terrorism were global in nature and required "collaborative responses" "Hegemonic world order is simply not possible" he said adding that there was no one dominant power but a cluster of major powers in the current world order "If there is an inevitability it is the inevitability of a multipolar world order" he said at the event The 71-year-old former diplomat argues in the book published by Juggernaut Books that such narratives are useful in mobilising national pride and in creating a "sense of awe" among the countries of Asia and beyond "The US remains a pre-eminent power against any metric of economic and military might Its status as the chief source of technological innovation and creativity remains undiminished" Saran writes "We are in reality neither in a China-centric Asia nor in a world destined to become China-centric" he adds While China’s presence in Central Asia has been expanding its military capabilities on both the western as well as on the eastern flanks of Asia are nowhere near that of the US which continues to be the "most formidable" military power in Asia he notes "Chinese economy is slowing down.A simple linear projection of China’s current growth rate into the future may not be realistic China remains a brittle polity and the rising insecurity within its political leadership sits uneasily with overweening arrogance of power "Its historical insularity is at odds with the cosmopolitanism that the densely interconnected contemporary world demands of any aspiring global power" Saran affirms The 292-page book which has a foreword by Manmohan Singh is a riveting account of critical events and shifts in Indian foreign policy in the post-Independence period including the landmark India-US nuclear deal With a strong focus on China the book which is part memoir and part thesis on India’s international relations also has a section dedicated to the country’s complex and troubled ties with Pakistan and Nepal The book has four sections each representing a seminal theme It takes the reader behind the closed doors of the most nail-biting negotiations and top-level interactions — from Barack Obama stopping by a tense developing-country strategy meeting at the Copenhagen climate change summit to the private celebratory dinner thrown by George W Bush for Manmohan Singh on the success of the nuclear deal "I believe the India-US nuclear deal was significant precisely because it expanded India’s foreign policy options.The deal is an example of how India enhanced its energy security and expanded its strategic space" Saran observes Noting that India-Pakistan relations remain a "prisoner of partition" Saran asserts that Pakistan has nurtured its quest for parity with India through its large and powerful army and now through an expanding nuclear arsenal He argues that Pakistan’s willingness to become a client-state of the US and now of China arises from its obsession with constraining India "There is a fond belief in Pakistan that China’s proposed $46 billion investment in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and in Gwadar port on the Balochistan coast will be a game changer for Pakistan and buttress its ambitions to become equal to India" Saran writes The book is also an attempt to trigger greater interest in China which Saran says is a "fascinating" country but remains poorly understood in India "This lack of familiarity can be costly when it comes to safeguarding India’s interests.Without an understanding of China’s worldview and how it influences the country’s association with other nations it would be difficult for India to confront the China challenge" Saran warns had issued a letter dated 2/7/1977 addressed to Maneka Gandhi in which she was asked to surrender her passport under section 10(3)(c ) of the Passport Act in public interest within seven days from the date of receipt of the letter. download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: October 3, With
