sidestepped questions on alleged involvement of the Sangh leaders in the Vyapam scam saying that the matter was in the “legal jurisdiction and will be decided accordingly The Sangh has nothing to do with it nor it is in our realm of things” He was speaking to the media in Vadodara where he kicked off his four-day tour of the state on Friday Bhagwat arrived in Vadodara by train and in the few hours that he spent he had tea at the Lukshmi Vilas Palace and met the royals – Rajmata Shubhanginidevi Gaekwad and scion Samarjitsinh The meeting came in the backdrop of speculation that Samarjitsinh is among the contenders for the ticket to fight the Lok Sabha bypoll to the Vadodara seat which was vacated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi Avoiding comment on the 30-day performance of the Modi government Bhagwat said “We are just like common citizens for the government and let us see how they will perform ahead” Asked about the RSS control on the government he said “In the days ahead it will be clear how much we are controlling the government if we are Look at me I am roaming free here in Vadodara Am I controlling the government” Bhagwat will also visit Garudeshwar in Narmada where he will attend the celebrations of the centenary death year of Maharashtrian spiritual leader Vasudevanand Saraswati Maharaj on Saturday Earlier Bhagwat met his friend and Vadodara president of the Sangh Vrajesh Shah an orthopaedic surgeon in the city with whom he had lunch Bhagwat said that he was in the city to “connect with good people” one of whom was his “old friend” Samarjitsinh He said that he thought it was necessary to “renew” ties with friends and decided to make a stop at the palace to meet the royal family “I am here because I have been friends with Samarjitsinh for some time When he comes to Nagpur he meets me So today I am in Vadodara and I met him I have decided to meet my friends here whenever I am in Vadodara Samarjit is already a part of our circle but I just think it is important to renew ties since we do not speak regularly” Bhagwat was here last in April 2013 when he had also met the royal family Bhagwat who was accompanied by Sangh workers proceeded in a convoy that included an ambulance from Vadodara to Rajpipla where he will spend the night at the residence of an RSS leader Ravi Deshmukh On Sunday Bhagwat will also inaugurate a Madhav Vidyapeeth — a

Published: August 28 2014 12:04 am It calls itself ‘maha’ or grand but the Nitish-Lalu tie-up was not an act of political creativity or ambition Related News The maha gathbandhan or grand alliance has hailed its own victory in Bihar and is being projected outside as the beginning of a brave new experiment of opposition unity against the BJP The tie-up between Nitish Kumar and the Lalu Prasad-Congress combine won six of the 10 bypolls bringing down the BJP tally from six to four in a state it had swept in the general elections The day after if you were Nitish Kumar you might feel a sense of vindication If you were Nitish Kumar perhaps you might also ask yourself if you had read itwrong — again If for long years Nitish was the politician who patiently waited on the sidelines for his turn on centrestage once he made his place on it he has shown a striking tendency to misread the political signs and to draw ill-judged lessons from adversity His apparently wavering conviction in his own political project seems remarkable For now it indicates thatthe maha gathbandhan in Bihar and its possible versions elsewhere could be creations of political defeatism More generally it suggests that the Nitish model in Bihar may need rescuing from Nitish Despite its imperfections the Nitish model imbues “social justice” and “secularism” with the language of “development” and “good governance” It is a significant step forward in Bihar where under Lalu politics traded in apocalyptic and pessimistic oppositions To be sure Lalu also has singular achievements of his own In a state of raging inequalities his politics and charisma almost single-handedly shifted the balance of power in favour of the historically disprivileged castes But as his success became more routinised and less reversible it became difficult to hide his failure to link “social justice” to governance As cover Lalu projected and promoted a false antagonism between the two For him even today it is a fight between “Mandal” and “Kamandal” in which both remain frozen in their 1990s versions and neither has a developmental imprint Nitish’s unlikely partnership with the BJP on the other hand helped him forge a “coalition of extremes” By bringing together the upper castes with the most backward it arguably created some of the conditions that allowed caste polarisation to recede — and governance to come into focus in Bihar In 2013 when Nitish walked out of his alliance with the NDA pointing to Narendra Modi’s imminent coronation as its prime ministerial candidate he clearly miscalculated the costs of splitting with the BJP The alienation of the upper castes meant the loss of support of the most articulate and aggressive sections of the electorate in a predominantly rural state where political mobilisation of the most backward groups is still halting and incomplete It came at an already precarious time for the Nitish regime After its spectacular first-term achievements — in building roads restoring law and order and implementing innovative schemes such as cycles for schoolgirls — the Nitish government was slowing down In part it was because a resurgent state was becoming increasingly extractive and corrupt as it spread into new corners Short cuts taken in the first term had returned to haunt And popular aspirations sparked by his early achievements were overtaking his government’s second tenure Then in 2014 when he fought on his own Nitish underestimated the Modi wave and overread his own rout In his own mind Nitish fought Modi in the Lok Sabha polls and lost ignominiously This triggered his resignation as chief minister and later pushed him into the alliance with Lalu But voters in the parliamentary polls may not have punished Nitish at all By all accounts they voted to oust the Congress and to bring change of which Modi became the mascot Travelling in Bihar ahead of the recent bypolls it seemed evident that across castes and classes voters agreed on one thing: the Lok Sabha polls were no referendum on Nitish And that for the assembly polls he would not only resume his place at the centre of the field but also have less to worry about than was suggested by his own panicked reaction to the Lok Sabha defeat In fact a burgeoning constituency is visible in Bihar across the faultlines for the Nitish model But this constituency is still fragile It could be alienated by the regressive alliance he has now struck with Lalu It calls itself “maha” or grand but the tie-up was not an act of political creativity or ambition It wasn’t born of the risk-taking or leap of imagination that marks out the good politicians or the brave ones It is certainly not the much-awaited emergence of a wider coalition for social justice seeking a broader platform by linking itself with an agenda of governance One of the theories doingthe rounds in Patna ahead of the bypolls best sums up theend-of-the-roadism that shores up this grand alliance: Nitish-Lalu would not be able to weather the good times it said Their alliance would snap if it did well and only hold up if it didn’t Because if it did well Nitish might be encouraged to believe in himself again and walk out of Lalu’s embrace After all how long could he take the not-so-good-natured bada bhai-chhota bhai (older brother-younger brother) joshing and the sidelining of his own political vocabulary by Lalu’s unreformed bluster For someone whose government is said to have been in a fine agony over whether its one-year report card should say “Nyaya ke saath Vikas” justice with development or “Vikas ke saath Nyaya” throwing in his lot with the Lalu worldview must hurt For the Nitish camp the maha gathbandhan was a no-alternatives strategy But for Nitish there was an option though admittedly a tougher one He could have stayed his course and grappled with the turbulence that had overtaken the Nitish model Essentially that would have meant facing up to a contradiction and a dilemma grown sharper after his split with the BJP The contradiction arises from the Nitish government’s efforts to open up the rural power structures through positive discrimination at the bottom even as upper castes have continued to dominate institutions of the state at the highest echelons Reservations of mukhiya posts for backward castes in panchayats for instance are slowly upending caste hierarchies And the dilemma is this: while the political gains for him remain scattered and incompletely mobilised the upper caste backlash against him is coherent and powerful To work his way out of the dilemma and the contradiction however Nitish would need a mediating institution a go-between to help pull together all parts of his politics and government What he really needs is a party that mobilises support and also plays a placating tempering and cushioning role The JD(U) is unequal to that task For that of course Nitish must own up to his share of the blame To take his political experiment forward he concentrated exclusively on instruments of the state He came down on party networks of corruption and patronage But at the same time by overly relying on the bureaucracy he starved the organisation of influence or participation in decision-making As a result JD(U) workers did not develop stakes in the Nitish project And now having helped hollow out his party and confronted by a BJP machine that fights a Lok Sabha election armed with the preparation of a panchayat poll Nitish has joined hands with Lalu But what of the growing Nitish constituency Could it have given him the breathing space he required to begin rebuilding his party Could a direct connect with the people even have stood in for the missing party The most tantalising question now will be whether and to what extent Nitish can remain open to those possibilities as he sits on the maha gathbandhan stage next to Lalu [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
