Parliamentwill decide the fate of the government in New Delhi and more particularly that of the Congress party which leads the national ruling coalition Behind the frantic campaigning of young politicians like Rahul Gandhi of the national Congress and Akhilesh Yadav of the regional Samajwadi Partyis a story about a state emerging from a black hole of economic and social inequity after decades The outcome of the elections in UPcome March 6has implications beyond India A win for the Congress or the SP will boost similar dynastic inclinations among leaders and ruling parties in PakistanSri Lanka and Bangladesh A defeat can cleanse the neighbourhood of an entrenched feudal habitlower the barriers to entry in politics and encourage the rise of grassrootsrepresentative leaders In the last four yearsUP a state long written-off as ungovernable and undevelopable has been growing at 7 per cent on average It isfor the first time in decadeson a par with Indias national growth and if the next government pushes actively for growthit could outpace the country Part of this remarkable progress is the massive number of poverty alleviation schemes being deployed by both the state and Delhi Billions have been invested over the last five years In this regardUP is a giant welfare lab But in Indian termsit is also a rare success becauseeven with leakages to corrupt politiciansenough spending has actually made it to the ground to benefit the worst-off Simultaneous with the poverty programmes is the infusion of pride for the Dalit the community lowest on the Indian caste hierarchy for centuries by Mayawatithe chief minister of the state and a Dalit herself Her ascent was accompanied by expenditure on a vast variety of public projects most significantly the Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Gomti Park in Lucknowa magnificent 107-acre public space with statues of Dalit icons like Ambedkarwho co-wrote the ConstitutionLord Buddhawhom the Dalits worship and statues of herself It is transforming Lucknow from a decaying city of Nawabs into a resurgent metro On the groundMayawati has ensured that her constituency gets most benefits and they have pulled along much of UPs poor There are schoolseven some collegeshospitals and small businesses in the smallestmost dishevelled of villages There are fewer straw huts and more cemented homes a development that is changing the very structure of rural society Every family has children in school and many youtheven those from the most deprived communitieshave college degrees Now they want more They want professional colleges like engineering and medicinesanitation24-hour electricitygood infrastructure And they want jobs closer to homeunlike their parents and grandparents who toiled in Delhi or Mumbai to escape impoverishment Mayawatis biggest challenge is creating those jobs They wont come from Indias state sectornotoriously inefficient and captive to political patronage Private industry had long left UPfed up with the crime and massive corruption of successive governments Is this up-from-the-bottom Dalit leader capable of bringing in confident investment One way could be to galvanise UPs agricultural potential The population of this fertile statethrough which the Ganges river flowshas embedded farming skills It could be a hub for rural innovationproviding meaningful work to millions of underemployed peasants while freeing up the educated young for skilled jobs in agriculture-related industry Imagine a market the size of Brazil all within India Mayawati is a risk-taker Her actions so far have broken down the old social order by pulling the lower castes out of their accustomed place at the bottom an example for nearby Nepal and Pakistan where the still-entrenched caste system keeps society feudal and poor Some might say Mayawati has a bit of US President Obama in her She didnt get to Harvardbut like himshe too is from an unprivileged background Like himshe has sought change through education and

anti-competitive manner” “RJIL has already extended the media to the other operators’ premises at its own cost However the other operators instead of augmenting the point of interconnections (PoIs)

three-year-old granddaughter was also beaten up when goons raided his residence late in the night and thrashed the members of his family Why To keep them from voting the morning after For a moment though forget the political affiliation of the henchmen or the victim The incident is a chilling reminder of two axiomatic truths in West Bengal One violence is the norm not aberration during polls Two since violence replaces ideas and ideologies as the key to power the ruling party uses every trick in the book to perpetrate it A strange perversion takes place in the order of polity Lawkeepers are blamed for trying to maintain law and order and creating an atmosphere of safety for voters to cast their ballots Goons in tow party leaders take umbrage at not being allowed to break the rule Adult suffrage is the cornerstone of democracy But only when it is free and fair If the rules of the game are cynically subverted question must be raised whether merely holding elections is proof enough of a functional democracy Representational image PTI To be fair to the ruling Trinamool Congress party it did not pioneer the state’s culture of violence during polls The Left Front now at the receiving end of own medicine had for decades perfected the art Its armies of local toughs henchmen and cadres would go about threatening voters eliminating them if necessary and rig polls with such élan that a term called ‘scientific rigging’ was added to Bengal’s voting lexicon If anything the job has become tougher for the party in power There is the omnipresent media with a battery of reporters and video journalists The Election Commission is armed to the teeth via a constitutional statute and has shown that it is ready to bare fangs In fact so tight was the vigil on Monday during Phase 4 of the Assembly elections that many TMC leaders were extremely peeved with the EC for "acting as CPIM agents and creating terror" That doesn’t mean that the ruling party was found wanting in effort Hoodlums allegedly associated with Trinamool Congress threatened the family members of CPIM polling agent Tito Samajpati on Sunday night in Barendra Nagar area of Halishahar a constituency in North 24 Parganas which went to vote on Monday The family’s mistake was to dial the number of local CPM candidate Rabindranath Mukherjee who alerted the cops A team of local police and central forces arrived to meet the family No sooner did they leave however goons returned this time allegedly armed with revolvers They barged into the rooms beat up the unwell Samajpati his daughter Debashree and also didn’t spare the little Sayantika who took some blows on her tender arms The toddler’s feed was kicked around and the rooms ransacked Debashree’s 16-year-old son and husband were thrashed too Bijpur MLA Subhrangshu Roy son of TMC heavyweight Mukul Roy whose name has been linked to the Narada sting was quick to deny his party’s involvement “What has happened is extremely unfortunate and despicable I condemn it No link has yet been established between the attackers and TMC Police are conducting an inquiry We too are looking into the incident at the party level Anyone found guilty must face strict punishment“ Roy was quoted as saying in Times of India If the attack was aimed at intimidating the voters and sending a message then the goons failed in their task as the spirited Debashree under the supervision of an EC team who took suo motu cognisance of the incident took the baby in the crook of her arms on Monday and exercised her democratic right The question though is this In Monday’s fourth phase voting was held across 49 seats involving 108 crore voters in about 12500 polling stations Is it possible for the EC to keep a close eye over every booth in every constituency "No" says Tanmay Bhattacharya The CPIM candidate from Dum Dum north bled from deep cuts in his hand when alleged TMC goons threw stones at his car smashing the windshield and injuring him "The EC and central forces have done a commendable job But it is not possible for them to scan all lanes and bylanes of every ward The goons play hide and seek with security personnel They lie low when a vehicle passes and spring a mischief the moment law enforcers are out of sight" Bhattcharya was quoted as saying in TV channels on Monday The question therefore is one of intent The EC and its army of 90000 forces (including state police) performed a mini miracle on Monday They chased away outsiders lathicharged on troublemakers clamped down on illegal assembly tried to remove false voting and generally kept the local toughs and goons on their toes Central forces scanned media vehicles ambulances and even police vans A total of 229 arrests were made on Monday alone out of which 207 were preventive The police too marked a dramatic improvement in their performance a far cry from 2015 when they stayed as mute spectators and gangs took control of civic body polls Faced with such pro-activeness from security personnel TMC were thoroughly disgruntled led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee "The EC is preventing people from voting by clamping Section 144 This is uncalled for Has a curfew been imposed Our flags party offices have been demolished by central forces Why just stop at 6 phases why not hold voting over 294 phases in 294 seats" the TMC supremo said at a rally in Patuli on Monday evening Taking a cue from her TMC ministers fired salvo after salvo against the EC Outgoing finance minister Amit Mitra agriculture minister Purnendu Basu and marketing minister Arup Ray complained that due to the "terror" launched by central forces "people were not allowed to vote freely and fairly" Basu even went on to say that this was an "undeclared emergency" Bucking the usual trend in polls in Bengal there was no miraculous spike in voting percentage in the late hours of Monday the most telling indication that "ghosts" were not able to haunt the polling booths Undeclared
