| Published: December 13 2015 12:09 am Congress president Sonia Gandhi coming out of her residence to meet the people on her birthday in New Delhi on Wednesday (Source: PTI) Top News We do not need to be reminded that Congress politics has seen neither parivartan or vikas in 40 years but Sonia Gandhi reminded us anyway last week After returning from another mysterious medical break in a mysterious foreign country she got the news that the Delhi High Court had accepted that there was merit in the National Herald case This meant that she would have to appear with her son in court This is mandatory under the law in order to be granted exemption from future appearances and all she needed to have said was that as a law-abiding citizen she would appear when summoned She chose instead to make a political drama out of a legal matter So on national television she announced menacingly “I am Indira Gandhi’s daughter-in-law and I am not afraid of anyone” In saying this she sought to invoke memories of that long ago winter when due to the idiocy of the Janata Government the other Mrs Gandhi was arrested on charges so flimsy she became an instant heroine As a hack of a certain age I can report that I happened to be covering this event outside Tihar Jail and remember well that it became clear to us reporters that when Mrs Gandhi was led through the iron gates of Tihar she smiled because she knew as we did that this was the beginning of her political return journey Had Charan Singh who was home minister done this in collusion with her he could not have done her a bigger favour And with the benefit of hindsight and the knowledge that his brief moment as India’s prime minister became possible only because of her help who knows if there was not some kind of wicked plot The times have changed since then India has changed But Congress politics remain unchanged There is still a Mrs Gandhi in charge and she appears to believe that there will be much political mileage to be had from the National Herald case Her son and heir has already announced that he sees ‘political vendetta’ in the judge’s order and knows that this vendetta is being ordered from the Prime Minister’s Office The question nobody asked him was why the Prime Minister needs to take revenge on the leaders of a political party that has so few seats in the Lok Sabha Or for that matter on him or his Mummy The National Herald case was brought to court by Subramanian Swamy three years ago when the man in the Prime Minister’s Office was their very own Dr Manmohan Singh And it seems like a straightforward sort of case in which the Congress helped its president and vice-president buy the National Herald’s assets in a private company in which they acquired a huge majority of shares On the board of this company were appointed their close friends and associates The registered office of the company is the private home of one of these close friends So if the judge found signs of ‘criminality’ it was probably because there does seem to be something dodgy about a political party allowing its assets to be transferred to a private company In any case surely the best way to absolve the Gandhis of this new shadow of wrongdoing is for them to appear in court and state their side of the story This would indicate that they respect the independence of the Indian judicial system and believe in the rule of law And instead of slinging mud at the Prime Minister’s Office would it not be more dignified to respect the chaiwallah if only because he did win a full mandate from the people of India But this is probably at the root of the problem that the Gandhis have with the Modi government As Venkaiah Naidu said in the Lok Sabha last week they simply have not been able yet to accustom themselves to being out of power So if the National Herald case had not given them a chance to disrespect Parliament once more there would have been General V K Singh’s awful comment Or if not this then there would have been a return to the alleged corruption of the chief ministers of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan And then there is new ammunition provided by the visit to Pakistan of the Minister of External Affairs How dare she talk to Pakistan without first asking their permission The truth is that the Prime Minister may as well get used to governing with a non-functional Parliament because the Gandhis have made it clear that they will not allow it to function Let him forget about GST for the moment and make those reforms in governance and the economy that he can make outside Parliament There is much that can be done and he has not got started yet Follow the author on Twitter: @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Surjit S Bhalla | Updated: April 5 2014 8:57 am Related News There are several intertwined stories that are likely to make this Indian election the most historical ever My forecasts based on various opinion polls that have come out over the last three months are presented below But as the saying goes none of them is responsible for my errors There are five major results disguised as forecasts First that there is a Modi wave an explosion that will take the NDA comfortably above the 272 mark On its own the BJP is likely to cross 250 seats (see table for details) and the Congress with a tally of 81 will be important in no more than three major states (Assam Karnataka and Kerala) The extent of the Congress debacle can be garnered from the fact that this number is almost half the number of seats gained by the Congress in the Emergency election of 1977 (154 seats then) Result one: Is the large BJP victory the outcome of an anti-Congress sentiment or is it a pro-Modi phenomenon While it will not make any difference to the eventual result the answer to this important question is relevant for history In many ways this is a chicken or egg or batsman-bowler-pitch question In other words there is an identification problem When several influences impact the same result it is conceptually difficult to isolate the true individual contributions Only by recourse to counter-factuals can one hope to unravel the truth Let me provide one such counter Answer the following question — if Narendra Modi had not been the face of the party but LK Advani was what would be your best guess about the BJP phenomenon Would we be talking about 150 seats for the BJP just 34 seats above the 2009 level or would we be talking about as at present more than double the 2009 level Note that the economy remains the same in the two scenarios disgruntlement with the Congress remains the same and all other political parameters remain the same Whether you think there is a Modi wave or not depends on your answer to the above question Result two: The impending demise of the Left An important story being missed in the excitement about waves and tsunamis and impending change at the Centre is a result that will indicate that India has joined the late-20th-century collection of nations The Left comprising the communist parties CPI and CPM (and sympathisers like the AAP) has been an important player in most Indian elections either at the state or national level or both Until the 2009 election the lowest number of seats this “intellectually popular” party obtained was 28 in 1984; in 2009 the bloc dropped to a new low of 20 seats This bloc has operated primarily out of two areas — the east (West Bengal and Tripura) and the deep south (Kerala) The latest March 2014 CSDS opinion poll indicates an 18 percentage point (ppt) decline in vote share from 43 per cent actual vote share in 2009 The same poll has Mamata Banerjee’s party at 38 per cent (up 7 ppt) and the Congress at 14 per cent (down 2 ppt) This is likely to lead to the Left obtaining only three seats in 2014 in West Bengal down from 11 in 2009 In Kerala a knife-edge state the vote gap between the Left and the Congress-led front stays at the same 9 per cent level as in 2009 but now with a third party the BJP garnering about 11 per cent of the vote It is likely therefore that the Left’s tally will decline by one from the meagre four seats they obtained in 2009 So when you watch the returns on May 16 do not forget to note history in the making with the Left seats in the low teens if not at a single-digit level Result three: I thought this election was about growth and governance so what happened to Nitish Kumar Both the CNN-IBN and the NDTV polls are predicting a rout for Nitish with no poll willing to give him more than six seats Since 1999 Nitish and his party the JD(U) have been in an alliance with the BJP but “somehow” Nitish was convinced to break away about a year ago Some argue that it was on the basis of “principle” that Nitish made this near (political) suicidal move This does not sound plausible; a more likely explanation is that the Congress set him up as an alternative Third Front leader to combat Modi and then unceremoniously stabbed him in the back by aligning with Lalu Yadav By all accounts Nitish has delivered growth and “good governance” Whether the voter punishes Nitish for betraying the BJP or punishes the Congress for doing the dirty is something to be watched My own guess is that the polls are right Nitish obtains seven and if BJP exceeds 29 seats in Bihar it will be at the expense of Congress-RJD Result four: The impact of the Muzaffarnagar riots on voting in UP The polls suggest not much impact at least relative to the BSP Both parties are expected to win the same number of seats — around 10 to 17? it’s miles too early to say who will win the Premier League. get back to basics and start winning again, and the distribution of power and awareness among the rural populace.
