remarked the speakerand adjourned the House The next morning when the House reassembledit was overcrowded but absolutely cool The prime minister was presentwhich was usual More noticeable was the presence of Attorney-General MC Setalvada man of enviable eloquence and mathematical logic He patiently answered all the questions raised by MPs and explained to them that compulsory deposits were not outside the purview of the Constitutionespecially because the amounts deposited would be returned with interest The irony is that the compulsory deposits scheme became operational after Desai was out of the cabinet under the Kamaraj Plan and TT Krishnamachari was finance minister It is arguable that one parliamentary debatehowever annoyingcannot possibly influence the course of history Truebut the problem is that what Desai did in Lok Sabha on that April afternoon was so horrendous and unacceptable that it crystallised the inchoate fears and apprehensions about the possible dangers of Desai

long-standing Adivasi demand for self-rule the Adivasis have had little to celebrate Related News The Jharkhand government’s order that Birsa Munda should not hereafter be represented in chains is another instance of the BJP’s unnatural obsession with history Munda who led an Adivasi rebellion against the colonial administration in the 19th century died in prison at age 25 His iconic image has been that of a youth in chains raging against all forms of exploitation and urging his people to stand up and fight It keeps alive a fiery memory and recalls the quest for freedom Birsa in chains in the context of modern Jharkhand and Adivasi iconography elsewhere is a powerful and disturbing image that is representative of a people who have been failed by independent India It is a reminder to the governing classes that the state needs to do much more for Birsa’s people who are among the country’s poorest and oppressed History and its rewriting should be the least of the Raghubar Das government’s preoccupations at this juncture Sixteen years after the Vajpayee government at the Centre took the lead to create Jharkhand in response to a long-standing Adivasi demand for self-rule the Adivasis have had little to celebrate The divide between the non-Adivasi and Adivasi populations has widened Governments in the past were mired in corruption and state-building was ignored Unregulated expansion of sectors like mining has led to land alienation and deep disquiet among Adivasis The issue of development has now joined with the matter of displacement of Adivasi populations The government’s attempts to develop the state’s immense mineral resources instead of ushering in a modern economy and society have only hardened old exploitative networks and patronage systems These are complex issues that need the attention of a caring government By seeking to invent a new narrative around Birsa Munda the Das government has brought back a paradigm that is far removed from the concerns of everyday governance Birsa of course is central to the Adivasi imagination but to be genuinely relevant he needs to be discussed in today’s social and economic context His ideal of emancipation extended beyond merely overthrowing colonial rule It encompassed the social economic and spiritual regeneration of Adivasi society In its early years the Jharkhand Movement exemplified this Birsa spirit when it campaigned against usury alcoholism and bonded labour It is the idea of Birsa Munda in chains or otherwise that the Das government must be inspired by not how his statues and pictures are crafted For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: Talking tough BJP leader Ram Madhav on Sunday asserted that days of strategic restraint are
