ready to undertake the unfinished agenda of our Independence; ready to set new standards in public life; and ready to create a popular movement that gradually allows governments to shrink and real power to shift to the people The catalyst for this magical transformation is undoubtedly Prime Minister ModiThere is a famous Chinese proverb: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago The second best time is now” The best opportunity for total transformation came immediately after Independence 69 years ago We missed it Modi is determined that the second best time won’t be missed We missed it because we lost the transformative spirit somewhere between 1857 and 1956 In 1857 the nation witnessed a major battle against the British which was christened by Savarkar as the “First War of Independence” The battle was fought by the leaders and masses together with the objective of throwing out the British It was a battle to restore “Indianness” The provocation was the foolish British attempt to impose foreign cultural practices on Indian soldiers The year 1956 signifies how we lost that spirit of Independence In an interview to John Kenneth Galbraith Jawaharlal Nehru declared that he was the “last Englishman to rule India” We started off in 1857 to restore “Indianness” and ended up a hundred years later in the hands of Indian rulers more British than Indian Mahatma Gandhi had a vision for free India On January 27 1948 he dictated a resolution for the Congress party which read: “India has still to attain social moral and economic independence in terms of its seven hundred thousand villages as distinguished from its cities and towns The struggle for the ascendancy of civil over military power is bound to take place in India’s progress towards its democratic goal It must be kept out of unhealthy competition with political parties and communal bodies” Gandhiji wanted true and total independence to be a product of popular effort; not political action Here lies the difference between Fascist rule or Communist dictatorship and the Indian ideal From Jan Dhan to Swachh Bharat to Give Up to Demonetisation — it is the popular will at work catalysed by the government that we have experienced in the last 30 months Joe Biden former Vice President of the US had said: “No fundamental social change occurs merely because government acts It’s because civil society the conscience of a country begins to rise up and demand — demand — demand change” It is that demand that we are witnessing today This is not going to be complete without the political establishment also changing Gloria Arroyo former President of the Philippines in a scintillating address to her countrymen once said: “We have to be bold in our national ambitions First we must win the fight against poverty within the next decade Second we must improve moral standards in government and society to provide a strong foundation for good governance Third we must change the character of our politics to promote fertile ground for reforms” Modi is attempting all three The third is the most challenging to change the character of our politics The latest round of election has shown that such a change is afoot Modi has lifted it to a level where caste religion money brute force etc have become irrelevant This throws up a major challenge for the political establishment Firstly they have to read the message correctly It will be a costly mistake to misread the mandate in terms of polarisation or as a “minor setback” It is a profound and forceful message that aspirational India is awakening and it wants nothing short of a politics of accountability development and hope The time is up for the politics of caste religion inducements slogans and hollow ideologies Parties are already feeling the pressure — perform or perish Be it Winston Churchill or Mahatma Gandhi doubts were expressed about Indians’ ability to rule themselves Modi wishes to allay the fears by making people the real agents of transformation I am reminded of JP’s war cry in 1975 — “Simhasan khali karo ki janta aati hai” failed leaders should vacate the throne as the people have arrived The writer is national general secretary BJP and director India Foundation For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsChandigarh | Published: June 2 2016 12:30 pm Captain Amarinder Singh and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Related News Just six months after he termed Rahul Gandhi “inexperienced” for the post of party president Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh Wednesday did a volte-face and said the time was right for the AICC vice-president to take over the party Amarinder’s statement corroborates reports doing rounds that Rahul could be handed over the reins of the Congress soon Even as he lauded AICC president Sonia Gandhi for giving her best to the party in the last 20 years Amarinder said she should now make way for the younger generation? the price jumped to $2000.
