doctors to cultural workers,representative? Perhapsthe gameplan is to shape different holographic images out of one Modi Each state will have a different Modi a backward state will get the vikas purushthe more urbanised states will get a rashtra purush or lauh purushkey states of the north and westmore prone to Hindutvawill get the Hanuman of Lord Ram While this strategy relies on the fact of state specificity and the need for a variegated strategy of campaign and electoral messagingwhether that will bring new votes to the BJP is a big question Modi must be aware of this predicament His supporters and he probably hope that as a demagogic leaderhe may succeed in swaying public sentiment on the basis of generalities and differential appeals In this task of image buildinghe would of course be aided most competently by the TRP-thirsty electronic mediaeager to telecast his speeches live or most extensively Yetthere is a possibilityand a strong onethat Modis BJP may not actually get enough votes across sections and states to win a sizeable parliamentary presence matching the Congresss 2009 presence Thereforethe third arrow to Modis bow is directed less at voters and more at non-Congress parties A mere tactical appeal to these parties to join hands with the BJP may not work SoModi employs the language of Congress-mukt rajneeti politics free of the Congress Apart from the very evocative imagery that can appeal to traditional non-Congress voters from the middle classesthis theme is actually aimed at non-Congress elements across the political spectrum By positioning himself as the leader bent on cleansing the system of the virus of the Congress (including a leader of foreign origin)Modi expects that his less-than-acceptable credentials on secularism will be ignored by parties when they do business after the elections This theme is thus Modis insurance policy for handling the compulsions of post-election coalition Just as Modis past (of letting the driver crush the puppy) comes in handy for the Congress in blackmailing self-proclaimed secular parties into a possible alignmentModis Congress-mukt rajneeti coaxes the habitual anti-Congressism out of quite a few political actors Veteran socialists and social justice supporters found virtue in the BJP during the mid-1990s because they were anxious to keep the Congress away from powerand Modi expects to forge a post-election alliance on that basis yet again In a post-Congress polityit is not certain that this appeal can be a very strong basis for forging a new NDA But before that happensModis BJP will have to pass the electoral test and win enough seats to negotiate with others The trouble is that voters are likely to be much more discerning than Modi expects them to be As suchan empty language of development and the potently emotive language of Hindutva will have limited appeal It is not yet clear if Modi will be able to mobilise sections beyond the middle classesnew sections of voters that the BJP has not tapped yet DalitsMuslimslower OBCs and the poor more generally If he does thathis chances of winning a handsome victory will be more realistic Or else the BJP would have made a risky gamble The writer
