And both those victories were influenced by events Indira Gandhis assassination and the Kargil victoryrespectively that helped generate whats called a wave in favour of the incumbents The Congresss May 2009 victory was remarkable because it seemed fit to be interpreted aseven after accounting for important state-level factorsa cool and calm positive voter judgment on the incumbent A lot of things seemed right for the Congressand there was no Left Truethe magic of any verdictno matter how great the electoral story behind itnever lasts in politics But remembering May 2009 nowjust a year-and-a-half into UPA 2s five-year-termits quite shocking to realise how littleif anyof that good story survives Almost as surprising is industrys strong disaffectiona good example of which is perhaps Deepak Parekhs caution Indias private sector was among the key stakeholders that bought into that May 2009 good news story If Parekhs critique is representative of broad and deep industry disaffection with the Congressit matters a lot Frequent-phoning corporate lobbyists and frequent-fighting corporate groups and all that these headlines imply do nothing to take away from the fact that the one good story now Indias economic growth is thanks toas it has been for the past decade or sothe dynamism of private investment There are crooked capitalistssure There are crony capitalists There are perhaps cartel-forming capitalists in some sectors So catch them and bring them to justice Rich crooks from the private sector should suffer the of the law Those are not the reasons why business may be beginning to lose confidence in the Centres ability to see the big pictureto use a term Parekh used The short-term reasons for industrys apprehensive interrogation of the Congress-led governments abilities are linked to a longer-term reasonsomething that goes right back to the immediate aftermath of that remarkable May 2009 victory The Congress decided not to add to its policy conversation after it beat anti-incumbency No one expected the Congress to reduce the emphasis on government expenditure-led welfarism Whatever the economic critique of some aspects of this strategythe political imperative was well understood What was surprising to close observers of UPA 2and industry should be counted among themwas the Congresss evident reluctance to take advantage of its new political stature and add a robust recognition of the private sectors importance and imperatives to its policy conversation The political costs of doing so would have been vanishingly negligible The policy costs of not doing so started becoming apparent very soon after the verdict Barring tax reforms the direct tax code and GSTboth of which were continuation of earlier efforts the government seemed disinclined to appear as a facilitator and rule-reformer for private investment Such a roleit seemedhad been deemed politically incorrect by the Congress To take an examplelook at the energy the government expended on pushing the nuclear liability legislation It engaged in a robust debate knowing that it was broadly on the right trackand it incorporated some sensible points made by critics in and outside Parliament Obviouslynew nuclear liability rules are important and deserved government energy Obviouslytootheres the big economic dimension in this policy But it would not be unreasonable to argue that it was the broad foreign policy imperative that came from the nuclear deal India successfully negotiated under UPA 1 which explained government energy expenditure on this issue Contrast that with the anaemic or non-existent efforts to push plain vanilla economic policy issues Did the Congress test the BJPs political maturity by explicitly inviting it to support long-pending bills on insurance and banking These have become such boring topics that any mention of them produces yawns in all forums No one seriously thinks the Congress is serious about all this Or take the Congresss comfortable capitulation to allies on the land acquisition and rehabilitation issue And Jairam Ramesh would have been unlikely to have become the Jairam Ramesh we know now had he not drawn political sustenance from the governments seeming determination to not add to its policy conversation Even more remarkable is Prime Minister Manmohan Singhs failureor reluctanceto put his imprimatur on a big economic policy We dont really expect Dr Singh to excite economic policy imagination any more Thats a damning verdict on the Congress and its returned-to-power government And it was because big thinking on economics was not given political backing in UPA 2 that the first set of bigbad stories in this governments tenure has created such an apprehension about its policy drift The drift was virtually a product of a conscious political decision post the May 2009 verdict In December 2010the months-long drift plus weeks-long bad press make for an awfully unappealing combination Thereforewhen Parekh says the prime minister should get the big boys to pull in the same direction or that the big picture must be recognised and ministerial energy must be devoted to itone can easily sympathisebut one should remember that the Congress never seemed inclinedpost-victoryto see the big picture Will the government add to the policy conversation Theres plenty of time Plusa BJP thats absurdly conflating parliamentary paralysis with effective oppositional tactics actually leaves a space for the Congress to intelligently exploit The answer depends on whether the Congress absolutely believes that its political strategy cant afford to include its government clearly and consciously signalling its intention to act as a facilitator and rule-reformer for private investment It isfranklyfrightening to think that the answer may remain no for the next three-and-a-half years saubhikchakrabarti@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
