April 1 2015 12:00 am Related News The NDA government at the Centre seems to be struggling to ensure the smooth passage of important legislation in Parliament Recently it was forced to defer the decision to debate the amendments to the land acquisition act in the Rajya Sabha Some of the key policies of the NDA government have come as ordinances and the government seems to be on the backfoot as far as the ratification of many of these ordinances by Parliament is concerned It has faced numerous embarrassments in the Rajya Sabha including the passing of an amendment by the opposition to the motion of thanks to the president’s address What explains this Most political commentators would like us to believe that this is simply a case of the NDA not having enough numbers in the Rajya Sabha While there is some truth to this claim in our view the current gridlock in Parliament is a reflection of two inter-related yet independent trajectories dotting India’s electoral politics The first trend signals greater consolidation of political power at the state level in the last 10 years or so Ruling parties in the states now have a better chance of re-election If in the 1990s the incumbent parties had an approximately 33 per cent chance of re-election post-2003 the chances of an incumbent government returning to office increased to 50 per cent The greater probability of the incumbent party’s re-election has also led to longer terms for their chief ministers and thereby increased the political profile of these state leaders The elections to state legislative assemblies are also witnessing more decisive verdicts with the winning party/ alliance taking a relatively higher proportion of seats than in the past Analysis of election trends of the last 25 years suggests that in many states the proportion of seats won by the winning party/ alliance in the latest assembly election has been much higher compared to the average in elections held in the 1990s and early 2000s For example Uttar Pradesh saw a series of hung assemblies since 1989 until the BSP won a simple majority in 2007 In 2012 the SP returned with an even bigger mandate Similarly in Odisha Naveen Patnaik has been chief minister for the last 15 years In 2009 his party had 103 seats in the state assembly which increased to 117 seats in the 2014 election As far as incumbency status is concerned states could be broadly classified in two groups In some states like Rajasthan Karnataka UP Himachal Pradesh and Tamil Nadu the incumbent parties are continuously getting replaced and the winning party is coming to power with a bigger mandate In states like Madhya Pradesh Gujarat Chhattisgarh and Odisha the incumbents are continuously getting re-elected The second trend suggests that India is in a phase of divided government In many states different parties dominate at the national and state levels The table provides a snapshot of India’s divided polity Delhi is an extreme case which is represented by different parties in the Vidhan Sabha Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha While the BJP and the Congress hold all the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha seats from the state respectively the AAP has 67 of the 70 seats in the Vidhan Sabha In neighbouring UP the SP has a comfortable majority in the assembly; the BJP has approximately 90 per cent of the Lok Sabha seats while the SP and BSP share approximately equal space in the Rajya Sabha A similar trend could be observed in states like Jharkhand Rajasthan Maharashtra Andhra Pradesh and Telangana where parties enjoying popular support in the Vidhan Sabha and the Lok Sabha have a low presence in the Rajya Sabha On the other hand the NDA has negligible presence at all levels in West Bengal Odisha Kerala and Tamil Nadu Ironically a large proportion of the Congress MPs in the Rajya Sabha represents states where the party has a dismal presence in both the Lok Sabha and the Vidhan Sabha This phase of divided government is probably temporary and is primarily due to a time lag between the Rajya Sabha and the assembly elections But it raises two important questions concerning the idea of representation and democratic accountability First who should be held accountable for policymaking and policy implementation in a quasi-federal system with bicameral legislatures Second is a divided government a sign of healthy parliamentary democracy that creates checks and balances or a hurdle that constantly troubles the ruling coalition in formulating and implementing policies This divided mandate — popular support to different parties at the state and national levels — is not only impacting the passage of legislation in Parliament but is also likely to play a big role in the implementation of policies With a majority in the Rajya Sabha unlikely for the government in the near future Prime Minister Narendra Modi might have to make some compromises and concessions for pushing his agenda of development and governance His government will have to use some political deftness in dealing with the opposition in the Lok Sabha and seek issue-based support from other parties In the coming months we will come to know whether divided

of a dialogue with "all stakeholders" evoked mixed reactions on Wednesday with opposition National Conference saying it cannot lay claim to a "single achievement" but some others terming it as "significant" All-party delegation in Kashmir PTI Immediately after the resolution was adopted at a meeting of the members of the delegation that visited the troubled state recently Jammu and Kashmir’s former chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted "I’m struggling to find a single achievement that the all party delegation can lay claim to after visiting J&K Nothing comes to mind as yet" He said if the delegation had to issue just an appeal it could have done it without visiting the Valley "If all they had to do was issue this tame & sterile appeal they could very easily have done so without wasting the time and money on a visit" Omar said after the delegation released a statement on its two-day visit to Kashmir "75 people have died 1000s of civilians & security personnel have been injured and there is no sense of urgency in getting a grip on things" he added CPM leader MY Tarigami however termed the call for holding talks with all stakeholders as "significant" "This is very significant and must be appreciated and encouraged Government must take follow up action and constitute a committee of senior parliamentarians to initiate the dialogue process with all stakeholders which includes separatists" he said adding "it brooks no delay" However he cautioned the Centre against trying to "browbeat" the separatist leadership by make statements on withdrawal of security "It does not contribute to creating a conducive atmosphere for talks" he said State Congress Chief G A Mir while appreciating the decision of the all-party delegation to hold talks with all stakeholders said besides this there was nothing for them to offer The delegation has failed in giving a concrete roadmap for ending the stalemate that has been engulfing the state for over two months

His face carried a weary look His language was combative alright but his body language didn’t quite match it His speech carried the usual barbs at opponents but it betrayed a lack of self-assuredness The sense of humour was nearly absent and whenever it came through it was forced and flat The consummate speaker used having the audience in thrall appeared to have lost the plot He looked a man overweighed by self-doubt Addressing the BJP Parliamentary Party meet Modi defended demonetisation and advocated strongly for digital transactions He said demonetisation was only the initial step to weed out black money and there is still a long way to go He dug up the past to blame the Congress for putting the interest of the party above that of the nation He blamed the Lefts for compromising with ideology He asked BJP leaders to carry his less cash message to people and even announced cash incentive for going digital For a change through all this he did not appear convincing Narendra Modi AFP Perhaps it had to with the fact that earlier he could claim popular support for his moves post-demonetisation he is not so sure With the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections not too far away party workers have been expressing apprehension over the anger among voters They can turn black money into some kind of an emotive issue but how can they make digital payments palatable to them In a country where trust in the banking system is low mobiles are still an object of curiosity for many and infrastructure for cashless transactions are woefully inadequate there is no way they can convince the rural voters about the great merits of going digital Worse the matter is so alien to their everyday lives that it won’t even register on their minds A politician with deep grassroots connect and experience Modi would not be unaware of this He would not be oblivious to the fact that demonetisation has resulted in widespread misery and it is not easy to defend it anymore The opposition for the first time seems to be with an upper hand While they can be managed in Parliament and elsewhere the unresolved cash issue would be big problem for party workers in the run-up to the assembly elections They simply cannot face people for whom the problems from demonetisation are real While this explains to some extent the lack-lustre speech from the prime minister what is baffling is his obstinate insistence on digital transaction Why cannot he go slow about it Why not create the infrastructure and awareness first before expecting people to make a transition from cash to cashless Such moves are indulgences governments with no other serious matter to take care of get involved in When all sectors of the economy are in a bad shape and need imaginative intervention it’s surprising that the government would expend so much energy on people shunning cash Some commentators have alleged that such moves are intended to distract people from serious everyday issues and the government’s failure to address them They could be right It appears the prime minister has made demonetisation an issue of personal prestige He would justify it come what may even if it means aggravating the current situation with more impractical measures Modi has a penchant for dramatic spectacular moves It adds to his aura This time he appears to have lost control of the script But he is too proud to accept it
