    Why China is watching Gujarat elections closely

    NEW DELHI: It appears observers in China are closely watching the Gujarat polls, because they see it as a "litmus test" of Indian voters' attitude toward Prime Minister Narendra Modi's reform agenda, reported Chinese state media.

    And why do they think Indian voters' attitude affects China?

    India's economic reforms are "an issue of deep concern to China because of its increasing economic interaction with India", said an article in the state-run Global Times. And any changes in India's economic reforms will be felt almost immediately by China, it added.

    "The outlook for India's economic reforms is deeply related to a good number of Chinese companies doing business in India such as Xiaomi and OPPO. If the BJP wins an overwhelming victory in Gujarat, the Modi administration may take more radical approaches to economic reform. China's companies will feel the changes no later than India's," said the Global Times article.

    A loss for Modi's BJP in Gujarat will be seen by China as "the biggest setback yet" for the economic reforms initiated by the government, said the article.

    "Modi's reforms have drawn fierce opposition from other parties and some economists, but those most qualified to evaluate the 'Gujarat model' are the people of Gujarat. Whatever the election result is, it will have a great impact on the public opinion environment for the implementation of the rest of Modi's reform agenda," said the article.

    What's more, if the BJP wins but loses vote share, that too is a red flag, said Global Times.

    Gujarat Assembly Election Results 2017 Live Updates: PM Modi said, "Election results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh indicate a strong support for politics of good governance and development. I salute the hardworking BJP Karyakartas in these states for their hardwork which has led to these impressive victories."

    As the BJP on Monday headed for a record sixth straight victory in Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed faith in the people of Gujarat and said the poll results indicate a strong support for good governance and development.
    “Election results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh indicate a strong support for politics of good governance and development. I salute the hardworking BJP Karyakartas in these states for their hardwork which has led to these impressive victories,” said Modi. Meanwhile, celebrations broke out at the Gujarat BJP headquarters ‘Kamalam’ in Gandhinagar on Monday as soon as the trends suggested that the ruling party was poised for a victory in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state. The BJP regained lead after initial trends showed Congress giving a tough challenge. As of now, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is leading in 53 seats, while the Congress has secured 35 seats. The BJP called the results a vote for development pushed by PM Modi, who was the tireless star campaigner in both states. The Congress took solace in the fact that it bettered its tally in Gujarat, the home turf of Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.

    The results of the bitterly fought elections in the state, where the BJP has been in power for 22 years, is a litmus test for the Opposition Congress whose electioneering was steered by party president Rahul Gandhi. The ruling BJP hopes to beat anti-incumbency and retain power for a sixth straight term.

    People of Gujarat has given excellent verdict in the State Elections. BJP got the power to rule with reduced majority. This is what I expected. I wish BJP understands the dissatisfaction of common man in the unabated inflation due to wrong fiscal policies of the Government.
    Government should not suspect all Citizens as tax evaders and increase their burden like linking Aadhaar for every act connecting with Government.

    Congress fought well and got reasonably good results. It is heartening to see Mr Rahul Gandhi accepting the verdict of the people without complaining.
    Congress should change its attitude towards ruling party and perform as a responsible opposition.
    Congratulations to BJP for retaining their hold in the home State of our PM.

    The hope behind majority placing their immense faith in you is to............


    The aspirations of the Majority – An open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah

    Dear Narendra Modi ji and Amit Shah ji:

    Many congratulations on yet another fantastic electoral performance in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. The BJP juggernaut just keeps on rolling. May it continue to do so for a long time.

    Many pundits are saying the reduced margin of victory this time in Gujarat is indicative of an undercurrent of dissatisfaction at the purely “vikas” driven governance being delivered at the center. Not being a political expert, and not knowing much about Gujarat, I will refrain from making any observations on the same. However, it is true that quite a few people like myself have observed the increased focus of BJP in this election campaign on “non-vikas” issues. So there may be a grain of truth in the observations.

    However, what is definitely true is that all of us do aspire for vikas on the non-economic front as well. After all, we are not robots or abstract entities that can survive on pure material grounds. While we do require roti-kapda-makaan, and of course roads, lighting, LPG, cars and so on, we do also aspire for a meaningful life that allows us to seek and achieve a higher pedestal as humans.
    This requires us to grow on the spiritual and philosophical front as well.

    To pursue the purpose of, and meaning in life ,  we require sustenance and growth of our culture. And to make this happen , our history, religion, education and language is important to us — so our ultimate goal of leading a life full of dharma and ultimately achieving the fourth purushartha of moksha is possible.

    We Hindus have no other place to call as our own. Bharata is our ancient land , our karma bhoomi. This is where our Gods appeared ,  this is where our rishis taught , this is where our noble kings ruled  and this is the land where our forefathers lived. We are doing our bit, in our lives, to be worthy of those glorious ancestors of ours. And of course, we do want to pass on the legacy of our culture, heritage, language and religion to our future generations.

    The founders of independent India thought it wise to leave the responsibility of ensuring the welfare of Hindus on our elected representatives. After all, we were/are the ‘majority’ in this land. It is only the minorities, they thought, that require protection — to ensure the tyranny of the majority does not deprive them of the rightly deserved rights to preserve and grow their culture and heritage.

    This translated into a number of well intentioned rights guaranteed via our Constitution, and enforced via a number of laws. This also translated into a number of institutions established for the benefits of minorities. And those rights , those laws , and those institutions   are doing the job they were always intended to do.

    On the other hand, we Hindus have been left to lurch on almost all issues since the past 7 decades. We cannot manage our own temples , run our own schools , our rituals are constantly ridiculed , our festivals are looked down upon , our customs are termed regressive  and many of our languages are under the threat of becoming extinct. The institutions are not working for us and sadly, the Courts are not listening to our woes.

    It is with this background that the nation placed its immense faith on you and the party around 4 years ago. We saw your ascendancy as the initiation of a renaissance of Hindu culture. With every new electoral success, the confidence placed in you by the nation is only increasing.

    The hope behind placing this immense faith in you was to see some of our aspirations getting translated into reality .  To see corrections made  and our rights restored. After all, that is why people bestow mandates in a democracy.

    I do not think I can paraphrase the definition of such an “arrangement” better than the great Justice H R Khanna so I will just reproduce what he said on this matter.

    “The majority in a system of adult franchise hardly needs any protection. It can look after itself and protect its interests. Any measure wanted by the majority can without much difficulty be brought on the statute book because the majority can get that done by giving such a mandate to the elected representatives”

    However, it is a no-brainer that the above model hasn’t really worked well since Independence. The contract was being honoured by only one side. The mandate never translated into measures that fulfilled the aspirations of the mandate-givers. It is with this background that 2014 happened.
    Since then, the people of this nation have been repeatedly renewing your mandate , thereby renewing their confidence in you. In a way, they are only renewing their hope that their interest will indeed be looked after.

    It has been nearly 4 years now. We haven’t given up hope. And we only hope you do not disappoint us.

    Once again  —  many congratulations!
