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.

Ujjwal K Chowdhury First on August 9 this year and now recently on November 29-30, 2018, peasant organisations held massive demonstrations in the national capital. Earlier, there was a kisan march in Mumbai as well. Issues for the farmers include waiver of loans, subsidy for crops and a mandatory procurement of crops by government, and an acceptance of the MSP-C2+50 percent equation for assessing the minimum price of crops, with C2 being the sum of paid out costs, imputed value of family labour, interest on the value of owned capital assets, rent paid for leased-in land and the rental value of owned land. Farmers’ movements across India became poignant after several instances of atrocities on them. During the last two years of the NDA regime, there have been several cases of firing on farmers: six were killed in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh; seven in Jharkhand; 13 in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu. No action has been taken against the police in any of these cases. As for relief, very little, delayed or none at all ...
