growth low on development What does this say about the government’s priorities No matter what the political leanings many people have come to accept the premise that Gujarat has performed a lot better than the rest of India in terms of development over the last decade People are even talking about the Gujarat model of development as something for the whole country to emulate The backwardness indices of states computed by the Raghuram Rajan Committee (set up to come up with a formula to allocate the Centre-to-states funds) seemed to place Gujarat somewhere in the middle of the pack; a total surprise given the common perception First we will take a look at Gujarat’s growth performance and then examine to what extent the growth has resulted in “development” Clearly Gujarat has done very well in terms of growth in every sector There are a few states that have done better in individual sectors but mostly they are small states like Sikkim Chhattisgarh Manipur Mizoram and Uttarakhand where a small increase ends up being a big percentage change Among the rest Gujarat is at the top in terms of growth Gujarat’s performance in agriculture is especially noteworthy Growth is a means to an end and the end is development Development means less poverty better education better healthcare and better access for more households to water and proper sanitation Development means laying the groundwork for a better tomorrow Let us first look at the main development indices Since we are concerned about the performance of Gujarat relative to that of the other 27 states we will look at Gujarat’s rank among 28 states The first thing to note is that the composite performance index computed by the Rajan committee which gives equal weight to the improvement over the last decade or so in each category of backwardness such as education health household amenities places Gujarat 14th among 28 states For more details Despite the fact that Gujarat grew faster than most other states during the decade of 2001-11 its per capita expenditure is not only not at the top of the chart but has slipped further to the 12th position Equally surprising are its ranks in one the extent of poverty and two in female literacy: they are smack in the middle of the list at 14th and 15th respectively showing no improvement by 2011-12 despite fast growth It does show some improvement in its ranking for “Infant Mortality Ratio” from 19th to 17th though the record of being in the lower half of the class is still disappointing for such a fast growing state Gujarat is known for its roads What do the data tell us about its relative performance in road-building Gujarat’s high rank in state highways in 2004-05 conforms to the common perception It is possible that its rank in state highways has slipped a little due to some of the state highways becoming designated as national highways Its ranking in smaller road network however was not that high in 2004-05 and has fallen further States like Maharashtra Haryana and West Bengal have gone past Gujarat on this score It would be good to find out if the fall in the rank in this case is also due to a significant number of small roads in Gujarat having become state highways Many have talked about reaping the dividend from the relatively young Indian population by educating them well How well does Gujarat do in schooling The Rajan committee uses “Attendance Ratios” and “Number of Primary Schools per Population of 1000” as education variables and ranks Gujarat somewhere among the bottom six states in 2004-05 and the rank slips further by 1 or 2 by 2009-10 Perhaps these are not the most appropriate variables to assess the quality of education offered Here we can hardly do better than using the learning outcomes reported by ASER for all states from 2006 to 2012 (Tripura and Sikkim were not included in ASER’s 2006 sample) (See Table 4) These numbers too are shocking for a state claiming to be number one Instead of moving up it has slipped down in an area as vital as education What about household amenities and financial inclusion Once again we see mediocre performance and further slippage in Gujarat’s ranking from 2001 to 2011 (Census years) (See Table 5) This is a perplexing picture of development Gujarat has done so much better in terms of growth and so much worse in terms of development than other states Why has the fast growth not translated into meaningful development Finally it is the grassroot-level institutions that run schools health clinics bring water and sanitation to households and bring the fruits of growth to the multitudes Could it be that the centralised model of governance that works well for big investment projects does not work as well for grassroot institutions Or is this high growth with low development model indicative of the priorities of the government of Gujarat Or is it something else altogether It would be good to know the answer The most intriguing question of all is: what sustains the belief that Gujarat is the crowning jewel of development in India Kotwal is professor of economics and Arka Roy Chaudhuri is a PhD

In order to manufacture an electoral majority parties need to carefully build social coalitions The Congress has traditionally avoided shaping a social coalition that would explicitly exclude any section of persons from its ambit As such the Congress strategy came to be known as a rainbow strategy Even when it was forced to build a social coalition the Congress was more content with a “coalition of extremes” rather than a cleavage-based coalition of underprivileged sections either in caste/ community or class terms In contrast the 1990s witnessed social coalitions based on the principle of social cleavage — mainly in terms of caste In the post-1989 period Mulayam Singh Yadav has been identified with the Muslim-Yadav combination while Lalu Prasad’s success owed much to the support he mustered among the Dalits of Bihar in addition to the OBCs particularly the Yadavs and Muslims of the state Even the abortive and ill-fated SP-BSP coalition was predicated on the assumption that both these social groups had a common battle to fight The BJP took recourse to building a social coalition based on community cleavages by alleging a fundamental difference between the interests of the majority Hindu and the minority Muslim communities This definition of social division has been central to the BJP’s politics since the late 1980s In its calculations this cleavage has the potential of mobilising the majority Hindu community around issues of religious identity and a perceived threat from the minority community The main objective of the project of political Hindutva has thus been to construct a Hindu political community In the mid-1990s this project partially succeeded when the BJP started attracting votes from sections of OBC communities and to some extent from economically less well-off sections However it was very clear that this social bloc did not include Dalits After getting the support of 15 per cent of Dalits in 1999 the BJP slipped to 12 per cent in both the 2004 and 2009 elections (National Election Study 2004 and 2009 Lokniti-CSDS) While this was electorally debilitating it was also awkward because in the BJP’s understanding Dalits belong in the Hindu category Over the course of the current elections the BJP has made serious efforts to improve its performance among Dalit voters It has allied with state-level Dalit parties wherever possible (for example with the Republican Party of India (Athavale) in Maharashtra and Ram Vilas Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party in Bihar) But its efforts have been much more focused in UP It is not difficult to understand this emphasis on UP — if the BJP can breach the BSP’s social base among UP’s Dalits it would overcome a very critical stumbling block The state’s large and politically active Dalit population makes the BJP’s task very tough In the past two Lok Sabha elections its Dalit vote share in UP has hovered around a meagre 5 per cent To improve on this the BJP has resorted to a dual strategy On the ground it is reported to be spreading the word that the Congress did not do much for Dalits because of its policy of giving preference to Muslims (‘On Ambedkar day BJP says UPA favoured Muslims over Dalits’ IE April 15) This argument seeks to serve many purposes It seeks to divide the Dalit and the Muslim vote — a bloc that the BSP benefits from If successful it will ensure the division of the Dalit vote and unease among Muslims who would otherwise have voted for the BSP Given the fact that in many constituencies in UP these two communities constitute a sizeable chunk of the electorate such a division can alter outcomes Besides this line of argument ensures that Dalits even if they are disenchanted with the BSP would not vote for the Congress But beyond electoral calculations this campaign strategy serves the larger purpose of communalising Dalit voters In most parts of the country poor Dalits and Muslims share the same spaces — the poorer localities The communalisation of Dalits would therefore mean a possible confrontation whenever sectarian violence occurs This is what nearly happened during the Mumbai riots in 1993 Such communalisation helps the BJP retain its base among “affected” sections not just for one election but over a period of time Thus communalisation becomes a long-term political investment The BJP’s second ideological manoeuvre now more than three decades old was to appropriate Ambedkar’s legacy and present it as being supportive of its Hindutva This strategy has already been commented on extensively and analysed by many academics (for instance Hindutva and Dalits — Perspectives for Understanding Communal Praxis edited by Anand Teltumbde) Given the iconic status of Ambedkar among Dalits “proving” that he was favourable or sympathetic to Hindutva can easily convince them to support the Hindutva politics of today Ironically Ambedkar happens to be one of the most trenchant critics of Hindu ideology and practice But undeterred by that the BJP has been presenting Ambedkar through the prism of its Hindutva worldview Ever since the Samajik Samrasta Manch (platform for emotional integration — with Dalits) was founded in the 1980s RSS activists have busied themselves reworking the intellectual legacy of Ambedkar This ideological move was not initially matched with political penetration among Dalits But after a long time the BJP now appears poised to combine its ideological initiative with political interventions that would eventually communalise sections of Dalits The exercise to fit Ambedkar into the ideological milieu of Hindutva often takes two forms First since opposition to Muslims is sine qua non for Hindutva it is argued that Ambedkar shared Hindutva’s concerns about Muslims This despite the fact that Ambedkar warns against “the ugly spectacle of gangsterism against gangsterism” and unequivocally states that Hindu raj will “no doubt be the greatest calamity for this country” Second Hindutva suggests that converting to Buddhism is not really a fully-fledged rejection of the Hindu context For instance Savarkar the main source of the BJP’s political Hindutva somewhat disparagingly commented on Ambedkar’s conversion asserting that after all becoming Buddhist was not a great leap it was not an exit from the Hindu circle of ideas This understanding has led the BJP to argue that by not converting to Islam Ambedkar ensured “cultural continuity” with the Hindu religio-cultural ethos The BJP is playing up that assessment when as opposed to Muslims it looks on Dalits as “one of us” Thus invoking Ambedkar is aimed not only at gaining Dalit votes but at communalising Dalit-Muslim relations in the long run The writer teaches political science at the
