And I hate to say it todays India resembles the France of the 1780s somewhat And our numerous scandals which grow like a multi-headed hydra even as one head or the other is cut offis having an impact orders of magnitude greater than the affair of the necklace The middle classeswho are generally in favour of stability lost faith in the French monarchy The fall of the Bastille followed almost as an inexorable consequence If we are to save ourselves from the consequences of our self-inflicted indulgence in masochismwe need humility (admission of transgressions for instance)speedy resolution of issues (so that the cancers do not grow)sobriety (an understanding that fixing ones political or business opponents is less important than saving the edifice of the nation) and if we collectively

Shekhar Gupta | Published: October 1 2011 12:40 am Related News Here are the three most popular political questions these days: is UPA 2 deador not quite dead yet but gasping for breathand whether it is possible to revive it or not There isnt a fourth possibility in this equation Lets try and simplify this in Test cricket terms In May 2009UPAs second term could be seen as the beginning of a new Test match as favourites But the script has gone wrong So todayit is like it came out to batand was 82 all out It has been asked to follow onchasing a big deficit Nobody believes it will stage a stirring fightback and recoverbut thatas often happens with teams following on after a disastrous first innings collapseit would fold up quickly again Maybe for 182 this time It would be the political equivalent of a stunning innings defeat on the third day of this political Test matchor 2012the third year of this Lok Sabha So the basic reading isnot deador nearly deadbut down on its kneesfollowing onand looking hopeless A recovery is not impossible Some of the most stirring fightbacks in cricket history have come after follow-ons But team managements and captains have to do something bravely different to make that happen Likefor examplechanging the batting order Or threatening some irresponsible batsmen with the sack Is the UPA (or rather Congress) management capable of doing that On formit would not seem so Its leaderships responseeven under such extreme stresshas been utter nonchalance Its lack of conviction in its own ability is fully matched by its contempt for its opposition That is why the moment you ask its megaphones a hard questionyou are likely to be hit by something like: and what about the BJP Sodo you love Narendra Modi Andhellowho do you vote for All this will not work What may workinsteadis the political equivalent of a radical shuffling of the batting order and approach First of allthe Congress has to decide whether it wants to continue with Manmohan Singh as its prime minister If it doesntit should end his agony nowand appoint a replacement And if they dowhich I presume is the casethey should say so to their rank and fileand even more importantly to the utterly unruly Congress contingent in the Union cabinetso self-destructively unruly indeed that the only comparison you would find appropriate is the Pakistani cricket team The party leadership has to then ask all its Shoaib Akhtars (it has a bunch of them compared to Pakistans one) to fall in lineor be dropped No scuttling of cabinet proposals backed by the prime ministerand the political equivalent of capital punishment if anybody is seen undermining his authority (my conscience would not have allowed it but I was under pressure from the PMO kind of stuff) You either make sure your prime ministers writ runsor people will choose another prime minister People now have choicesand no patience And they may not share your self-serving contempt for your opposition If this firstprime ministerial question is settledyou can move on Identify islands of impatience within your top brass Tell Pranab Mukherjee that he will be nominated for Rashtrapati Bhavan next July Your basic instinct would be to make him and all other aspirants wait till the last dayuntil their nails have all disappeared in their bellies Now that luxury is not available You need your most important but lately faltering cabinet member at peace with himself Not angryimpatientfrustrated Nexttell Chidambaramwho has been keen to get back to Financeto wait just a bitthat he will move sideways into his preferred half in North Block as Pranab moves into Rashtrapati Bhavan That will settle the issue with and between these big two Who will then replace Chidambaram in Home Start nowby bringing Sheila Dikshit into the cabinet SM Krishnaone of the nicestmost gracious people youd meet in politicshas to be most respectfully offered a Raj Bhavan Sheila Dikshits induction will achieve several things Oneyou will bring an experiencedtrue-blue Uttar Pradesh politicianwith experience and thick skinin the cabinet See how skilfully she handled the CAG report on CWG compared to how many other Congressmen blundered She would be the first woman in the Cabinet Committee on Security since the passing away of Indira Gandhiand she would also be the first member from the Hindi heartland in this most powerful body in UPA 2 By next yearshe can be a deserving replacement for Chidambaram in Home Of coursethe second benefit would be the end of blood-letting between her and Ajay Makenprovided he is appointed Delhi chief minister The challenge of winning Delhi for the fourth time in 2013 will keep him busy and quiet The next steps will be the toughest because they will challenge the partys own entrenched immune system Consider this fact: six of the seven fourth-term members in this Rajya Sabha are from the Congress (The seventh is BJPs S S Ahluwalia and guess what His first two terms were courtesy the Congress) Of the third-term membersthe score is 13 out of 20 In factonly 26 out of the 153 first-time RS members now are from the Congress In the 20-member Congress Working Committee (CWC)only five including Sonia and Rahul are members of Lok Sabha What does this tell us That the party has been overwhelmed by political squatters who bring no votes or seats but are so very hot at gossipintrigue and parlour gamessabotaging their own government They have no base of their own and mostly no real talent but sycophancy So here is what to do Ask every two-term Rajya Sabha MP who has been rewarded with a cabinet positionor a place in the party hierarchyto choose a constituency now He should nurse this constituency and must contest for Lok Sabha next time roundwhether it is in 2014 or earlier That one solitary stepthe prospect of facing an electionand that too probably earlier than 2014would cool all fratricidal ardour and bring discipline back to this cabinet It is not insignificant that most of the infighting in this cabinet takes place amongst these permanent Rajya Sabha-ists with nothing to loseand they are also the most prolific and brazen at challenging the prime ministers authority and gratuitously dropping the Gandhis name Carry on from here Ask the seniormost amongst these to go and win back their states for the party Assign Digvijaya Singh to bring back Madhya Pradesh which he lost in 2003 Veerappa Moilyhelped by an able Jairam Ramesh should win back Karnatakaand Ahmed Patel should focus full-time on defeating Modi in Gujarat All three states are run by the BJPbring 83 seats to Lok Sabha and will hold the key to power in 2014 These stalwartswith their skills and experienceare needed to defeat the BJP in its strongholdsrather than to be permanent intriguersif not self-styled whistleblowers against their own government It is a lot of askyou might sayusing a cricketing metaphor But it is the only way out Otherwisean innings defeat is guaranteed
