complaining When the only icons it cares about are all in one family In this season of competitive absurdity it is tough to say which one is more ridiculous The Congress claim that the legacy of Sardar Patel is too holy to be exploited for electoral purposesor the BJPs literal giganticism in building a statue of the Iron Man inwhat elseironand almost two and a half times the size of the Statue of Liberty One thinghoweveris common between them Both have locked horns on the legacies of the past instead of a promise of the futureeven as the 2014 campaign is just beginning The Congress are pastmasters at exploiting the residual trustaffection and nostalgia that vast numbers of Indians have for the past generations of their leaders If anythingunder Sonia Gandhi they had done a bit of a course correction They talked of the present and the future and won two elections But Sonia has now yielded the leadership to Rahul He is bringing the party back to the basics It is invoking memories of and loyalties to the leaders of its earlier generations But with one important qualification: the only leaders they invoke are direct members of the Dynasty motherfathergrandmothergreat grandfathereven great great grandfather (Motilal Nehru) This leads to three obvious questions Onehow wise is it to hark back to a distant past when you have been the incumbent for a decade How prudent is it to leap backwards in time almost two decades (the last time the dynasty directly won power was in December 1984under Rajiv) This is a digressionbut even hereit is significant how little you hear of Rajiv Gandhi in this campaign The backward leapthereforeis almost a quarter century The party has a real brains trust: in its in-house Kautilyas as well as in its high-powered computers So it must have thought this strategy through carefully Butfor a simple analyst and also ultimately a voter like this writerit is difficult to understand the party going around the country reminding people of how awful their fate iswhen the same party has ruled themdirectly or indirectlyfor almost 56 years out of 67 To return to our basic argumenthere is question number two: it may be useful to take your voters back to your partys great leaders of the past But why confine yourself only to the members of one family And thirdif you dump all the othersincluding Patelhow can you object to another party invoking his name instead Giants of history cant be trademarked Why is this some kind of partisan political exploitation of a great leader of the pastbut using Nehru and Indiras name is fine Over the past two decadesthe Congress has worked systematically to rewrite history as if the only leaders who mattered in its ownand Indiaspast were the Nehru-Gandhis Nothing would have embarrassed Nehru more Whatever his differences with his contemporariesPatelNetaji and evenat a stretchAmbedkarhe had kept it within entirely democratic and liberal parametersgiving them all space and respect In the post-1980s Indiathis has changed Almost no new landmark has been named by a Congress government after a leader other than from the dynasty Hyderabads new cricket stadium and Mumbais new sea link have both been named after Rajiv Gandhimissing an opportunity to honour some other greats from these states We know nobody in Congress would name anything after Narasimha Rao But why not honour the memory of another figure from Andhra Pradeshyour own Channa Reddy or even NTR after alleven his daughter (Purandeswari) is a member of your coalition and a Central minister This when both the airports in Hyderabadold and neware named after Rajiv Gandhi as well (only the domestic part of the old airport was named after NTR under the NDAwhen Chandrababu Naidu was chief minister) And in Mumbaiwhy miss the chance of underlining the fact that Sardar Patel was yours too and naming the sea link after him instead Or even Ambedkar wholike NTRwas not from the Congressbut has a legacy everybody competes for Or YB Chavanarguably the greatest Maratha leader on the national stage ever Babu Jagjivan Ram was the Congress partys last great Dalit leader We know that he had a bitter parting after the Emergencybut the party hasnt had a Dalit leader of that stature before or after His daughter is the Lok Sabha speaker and is sometimes even mentioned among possible prime ministerial nominees in the capitals frequent whispers But you will never hear a Congress leader today remembering Babujiforget seeking votes in his name So can you complain tomorrow if the BJP does so The BJPs problem is simplerand more genuine It has an insufficiently long past and an inadequate political history to find leaders from its own pantheon Shyama Prasad MookerjeeDeendayal Upadhyaya were very important leaders but very few outside the small circle of the saffron faithful know anything about them And its two most important and if you may be forgiven for using that expressioniconic leadersVajpayee and Advaniare still around The partythereforehas a real problem It is fine if it goes into the really distant past Then it has Lord RamKrishnaShiva and thenrelatively more recentRana Pratap and Chhatrapati Shivaji The Congress doesnt even complainbut the voters want some more contemporary names That is why the BJP has no choice but to borrow and steal from the Congress It could arguehoweverthat historyand its greatscannot be divided on partisan basis Alsothat it is not borrowing or stealing but only honouring those the Congress has forgotten Sardar Patel was only the first Congress great to be adopted by the RSS and Jana Sanghwhich had built an entire conspiratorial demonology around Nehru As his principled rival in his party and governmentPatel was chosen as a naturalposthumous defector by the Sangh ideologues Lal Bahadur Shastri was the second He paid rich compliments to the RSS during the 1965 war and was immediately hailed as a favoured nationalistwhile Nehru was sent no thank-you card for doing even more during the 1962 war Go to YouTube and watch the speeches of Baba RamdevAnna Hazare and then the footage of RSS rallies and exhibitions Shastri has pride of place therein voice and posters Will you also now accuse the BJP of exploiting a truly great Indian like Shastri for partisan politics Particularly when you had dumped him long ago The Sangh Parivar has indeed been unabashed in stealing some of its rivals legacy The hailing of Indira Gandhi as Durga was clever and I have sometimes thought that I may just live long enough to see her also installed in the RSS iconography If our politics follows the same patternwith the Congress purging all but the Dynasty from its memory and the BJP happy to borrowyou might even see a similar floor-crossing for Manmohan Singh in decades to come And why not Narasimha Rao as well Although the Congress would then saywe always told you so sg@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News
