Ruminations: Time for a Congress-led movement 15.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
To rise from the ashes of 2014, India’s Grand Old Party needs to build a movement on a people-centered issue Starting with a near-clean slate after the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, this week’s state assembly election results are like a second coming for the Congress party. A combination of factors helped the party to succeed in the ruthless politics of the Hindi heartland – fatigue with long BJP rule in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the incompetence in Rajasthan, farm distress, unemployment, and the fallout from demonetisation and GST. The issues were pretty straightforward which the BJP tried to complicate with attacks on the Nehru-Gandhis on the lines that have been repeated routinely since 2014, a vituperative agenda of communal divisivess with crass generalisation symptomatic of majoritarian politics and an encouragement to abusive trolls by not shutting them up.

Before December 11, Rahul Gandhi was treading on the road to become one of the most unsuccesful politicians. The joke was that every time he spoke, BJP strengthens it’s vote bank. He was seen as the BJP’s most effective campaigner. It has been exactly one year since he became president of the Congress party and judging by his performance one can safely say that he has got under the skin of the BJP which always treated him as a nincompoop usually found in every Indian neighbourhood. Finance minister Arun Jaitley called him clown prince. When asked to react to a Rahul Gandhi charge during the run up to the ...

Disequilibrium: Achilles syndrome 15.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
An analysis of the BJP versus Congress vote share in the Hindi heartland reveals that Modimania is far from being history even though it is a perceptual setback seen against the backdrop of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Equally, the polls have shown the emergence of Rahul Gandhi as a leader, the man who took the knocks and the Pappu remarks in his stride to deliver on the day. The question is, leading up to the next general elections, will it be Modi or Rahul who will be able to expose th An analysis of the BJP versus Congress vote share in the Hindi heartland reveals that Modimania is far from being history even though it is a perceptual setback seen against the backdrop of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
