” Professor Mahapatra said. 25 MSc, I have already finished shooting for The Xpose in January. it is quite clear that crucial mistakes were made..” Chidambaram said at the discussion to launch a book by Indian Express’s editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta So what was so special about those two years For one it marked the peak of the Lokpal movement though Chidambaram doesn’t dare take its name Chidambaram has said the government failed to communicate efficiently PTI image “It is quite clear that the critical years were 2010 and 2011…Whatever will happen on 16th of May I think will be the direct product of those critical years – 2010 and 2011 Looking back it is quite clear that opportunities were missed it is quite clear that crucial mistakes were made and looking back it is quite clear that even the principal opposition party did not see the opportunity in 2010 or 2011 Those were the critical years” he said For the finance minister the fundamental change in the country was that it had become an “aspirational society” from a “petitioning society” That’s a pretty big admission coming from a party that has built its entire brand around a dynastic sense of noblesse oblige Chidambaram’s statement may be the first acknowledgement by him that the Congress completely lost the plot when it came to handling scandals like the 2G and Commonwealth scams and the resultant movement for a Lokpal Bill headed by Anna Hazare Arvind Kejriwal by forming his own party after the movement may have attempted to make the most of it but as Chidambaram said it will be only known on 16 May whether he did it well enough to make a mark But if it was just about scams why are former UPA allies like DMK whose minister was implicated in the 2G scam hoping to do well in this election Is it deeper than just the Lokpal movement Chidambaram will not place the blame at his doorstep but it isn’t just the scams that are likely to cost the UPA dearly The UPA’s handling of the economy which saw growth plummet from never before seen highs is as antagonising to the ‘aspirational’ India that had emerged during the period of high growth It’s also the biggest poll plank for the BJP and its prime ministerial candidate But blaming 2010-11 as the years of change Chidambaram may have also laid the blame for this on his predecessor Pranab Mukherjee when he hints at the cupidity of UPA 2’s single-minded focus on rural populist schemes like NREGA: “That treating the people of India as petitioners we should give up…Nobody is any longer resigned to their fate” he said Chidambaram also pointed out that UPA-2 should have drawn lessons from the fact that it was not the poorer constituencies but the more affluent constituencies that voted it back to power in 2009 What makes Chidambaram’s remarks all the more striking is the contrast it offers to Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh’s blunt statement to Firstpost: “There should be no doubt about Congress party’s left-of-the-centre positioningThis should be very clear” Turns out it isn’t all that clear at all By: Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published: March 15 2017 3:36 am Top News A CLASH between two

the lack of evident anti- or pro-incumbencydevelopment politics may be the gamechanger As Madhya Pradesh goes to the polls todaythe election has familiar contours Unlike many of its neighboursMP is largely a two-party state Until the last decadethe Congress was the dominant partyretaining power since MPs formation in 1956apart from two brief interruptions 1977-79 (Janata Party) and 1990-92 (BJP) The steady weakening of the Congresss grip led to a two-party systemwith the BJP gaining momentum from the 1990s Since thenthe state has remained stubbornly bipolareven though the BSP has been trying to make inroads In the assembly polls of 2008the BJP had retained 143 seats with 376 per cent of the vote The Congress improved on its 2003 tally of 38going up to 71 seats with 324 per cent of the vote Though the BSP secured its best performance with 89 per cent of the votethat translated to only seven seats Another important player in this election was the Uma Bharti-led BJSHwhich secured 47 per cent of the vote and five seats Bhartis entry into the BJP fold before the election could have changed results further in the BJPs favour The MP assembly has reserved 35 seats for SCs and 47 for STs In 2008the BJP got 25 SC and 28 ST seats It is also important that not a single seat reserved for SCs went to the BSP Thereforethe binary format of political competition continueswith high entry-level barriers for others While the BJP is contesting with Shivraj Singh Chouhans as its facethe Congress has not projected anyone Despite ruling MP for much longerthe Congress has found it difficult to combat Chouhans leadership and style of functioningwhich helped the BJP override anti-incumbency in 2008 The scenario in 2013 is not that differentthough there appear to be strong anti-incumbency sentiments against individual MLAs and ministers The Congress leadership does not appear as united as it should be It has witnessed factionalism and infighting Many of the national stalwarts who have represented MP in the past have led separate factions within the state partycreating a quota system At presentthe Congresss state unit seems concentrated around three major power centres Digvijaya SinghKamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia Despite party leaders appearing together at all the big rallies in the last couple of monthsthey have not been unable to resolve or set aside their differences for the campaign Scindias elevation to campaign chief has energised the party rank and filebut as in the pastthere is more than one aspirant for the party ticket from each constituency Rahul Gandhion his visit to Mohankheda in Aprilcategorically stated that factionalism was a major problem He also said that tickets would be finalised long before the electionbut that did not happen On the other side is the BJPwhich having completed its second consecutive termhas also seen occasional factionalism rising to the surface Chouhan initiated the campaign with a Jan Aashirvad Yatratrying to convince people that his record as chief minister merited another term in office He is also banking on the popularity of his schemes for girlswomen and the weaker sections of society Early campaigning suggested that there was no wave against or in favour of either party Neither strong anti-incumbencynor pro-incumbency sentiment was visibleespecially as the Congresss campaign
