ultimately the ground realities matter and the Congress does not have much to rejoice about on that score but much to worry about But the real warning from this ruling comes for the BJP — both as government and as party The current Union government has been sometimes hailed as being more truly federal in its dealings with the states However the experience of states like Himachal Arunachal and Uttarkhand has been in the opposite direction In Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand much trouble emanated from the office of the governor and even elsewhere Governors under this BJP government have been prone to rake in controversies So appointments of governors political expectations from the new appointees and the eagerness with which the home ministry acts on their reports are all non-federal acts of the BJP government and reflect negatively on the democratic ethos that informs the SC ruling and the prevailing interpretation of the constitution The amoral exercise of constitutional provisions by the present government reminds the student of Indian politics of the impunity with which similar actions were taken by the Centre half a century ago As this writer has argued the present dispensation resembles that period of authoritarian populism of the late Sixties and early Seventies — the memory of which the present government always employs to demean its opponent the Congress Indira Gandhi was using “garibi hatao” rhetoric to defend her contempt for constitutional morality while the present government uses the rhetoric of “sabka vikas” and “shreshth Bharat” to adopt the same cynical approach It is an ironic coincidence that the SC ruling on Arunachal came on the day the BJP launched its major offensive in the Northeast — the North East ‘Democratic’ Alliance (NEDA) Handling states of the Northeast has always been a precarious project The Congress frittered away its natural advantage by succumbing to the temptations of its local leaderships The BJP has an ultra-nationalist approach to the region and it has been actively engaged in the attempt to impose the Hindi-heartland imagination of the nation onto this region — as elsewhere too Now it has taken to the political offensive Through NEDA the party aims at consolidating its political gains from Assam The political success however might leave the region more bruised and more bewildered The BJP of course has a right to expand in the Northeast; but the delicate issues of regionalism ethnicity and a negotiated settlement of disparate claims would be ill served if the BJP steamrolls local power equations as it sought to do in Arunachal or if it bypasses local sensitivities in the region It is indeed a tough call for political parties to balance three things: Their constant search for power; responsibility to national interest; and the pious challenge of expanding democracy But leaders go down in history and parties become historic only by trying to balance their power instinct with larger constraints Even before it lost as a power machine the Congress lost historically on this particular aspect and that led to its undoing in the end It would be interesting to watch what course the BJP takes on this path The BJP sees itself as the politically ascendant force for the coming decade beyond 2019 What do developments in Arunachal and Uttarakhand indicate In both instances it came out as impatient The BJP seems to be content with formally replacing Congress if necessary through Congressmen It is willing to include Congressmen (and leaders from other parties) in its fold give them prominence tickets and ministerial berths thereby effecting the initial change of ruling parties in states This has happened in UP Maharashtra and other places too This strategy gives quick results and helps the BJP spite the Congress but this model of party building is flawed The flaw is not just that “outsiders” gain ground within the BJP — that is the party’s internal problem relating to its ideology and idea of being different In the process democratic ethos is the real casualty No wonder the party finds the court ruling “strange” The “strangeness” of the ruling lies in the fact that it upholds constitutional morality in the context of overall contempt for democratic ethos If a party that hopes to be the main national party of the next decade has a cynical approach to the democratic ethos then surely there is much to worry about notwithstanding the glimmer of hope provided by the court ruling The writer teaches political science at Savitribai Phule Pune University Pune For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by C Raja Mohan | Published: May 7 2013 12:28 am Related News Prachanda’s trilateralism signals a turn to realism by Nepal’s Maoists The proposal for trilateral cooperation between NepalIndia and China from the Maoist leaderPushpa Kumar Dahalalso known as Prachandamay have been aired at an inopportune moment last weekwhen Delhi was desperately trying to de-escalate the military stand-off with China in eastern Ladakh The prolonged incursion by the Peoples Liberation Army and the highest political intervention that was needed to resolve it have certainly renewed doubts in Delhis mind about Beijings peaceful intentions in the Great Himalayas But it is important that Prachandas initiative towards Delhi and Beijing is debated on its merits While Prachanda has been musing about the proposal for some timehis Maoist colleagueBaburam Bhattaraihad begun to articulate the idea during his recently concluded tenure as the prime minister of Nepal Media reports from Nepal say Prachanda had discussed the idea of trilateral cooperation during his visit to Beijing barely days before his just concluded trip to India Prachanda was received at the highest levels in Beijingincluding by Chinese President Xi Jinping In recent monthsChinese scholarsin track two interactionshave been suggesting that Delhi consider cooperation with Beijing in Nepal and think of joint developmental projects there Put simplyPrachanda was not shooting the breeze when he suggested triangular cooperation Whether or not the proposal takes offit represents a significant political evolution of the Maoist worldview in Nepal Maoists had long viewed with great suspicion Nepals traditional relationship with India They denounced the 1950 bilateral treaty of friendship as hegemonic and demanded that it be scrapped The Maoists made no secret of their preference for an ideological and political partnership with China It is against such a background that Prachandas argument that Nepal must have good relations with both India and China must be assessed In an interview to an Indian newspaper last monthon the eve of his visit to DelhiPrachanda had said?
