latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Suhas Palshikar | Updated: October 1 2014 1:03 pm Related News The after-effects of the Modi tremors have now begun to be felt — not so much in governance or development as in the field of political competition The 25-year-old alliance between the BJP and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra has been abandoned The immediate provocation came from the Shiv Sena though the BJP had been keenly driving the Sena to the brink In the run-up to the parliamentary elections the BJP had surreptitiously tried to undercut the Sena by talking to its rival the MNS Later the Sena was not happy with the portfolio it got in the Union cabinet Finally the two partners have decided to test their strength independently This has allowed the Congress and the NCP to break their uncomfortable coalition of 15 years The “free-for-all” season has commenced in Maharashtra Following the 1999 split in the Congress the assembly election that year saw multi-cornered contests But the two Congress parties quickly came together to form government and contested subsequent elections as a coalition This gave the state’s politics an artificial bipolarity With the breakup of both coalitions the political field has suddenly opened up to the possibility of several future combinations of the four main players and the many smaller parties which so far had to be content with manoeuvring within the framework of the two competing coalitions The past 25 years in Maharashtra had stunted competitive politics and imposed unnatural constraints on the players The two main coalitions were awkward combines at best The BJP-Sena duo adopted the garb of Hindutva as a convenient justification for coming together Equally conveniently the Congress-NCP combine justified the alliance in the name of secularism and development However the real driver of both coalitions was the fact that in the past few elections no party had been in a position to win a majority This had been the case since the 1990 assembly elections when the Congress could not win a clear majority But soon after they were formed the coalitions became uncomfortable burdens for the partners When the Shiv Sena and the BJP entered into the alliance both had a limited reach in the state They had to first ease out the dilapidated Janata Dal and occupy the oppositional space This was at a time that the BJP had no friends in national politics Its Maharashtra coalition was its first experiment of entering into an alliance adopting a secondary role vis-à-vis a state party that was locally opposed to the Congress Since 1990 the non-Congress opposition space in the state had been occupied by this alliance The “Maharashtra model” was later replicated in a number of states such as Andhra Pradesh Odisha West Bengal and Bihar Thus the NDA was born But by 2004 the utility of the BJP-Sena coalition had been exhausted The Shiv Sena could not help the BJP much in the 2004 and 2009 parliamentary elections and lost its value for the BJP The split in the Sena also forced the BJP into a rethink about its ties Long ago in 2003 the BJP had raised the slogan “shatpratishat BJP (100 per cent BJP)” in the state But after some muscle flexing it retreated and the coalition was saved As a result of the alliance the BJP could not expand in many parts such as the Mumbai-Thane belt and the Konkan and Marathwada regions By 2004 complementarity exhausted the continuation of the alliance meant that both partners had to compromise their expansion plans and remain limited forces in state politics Despite the popular goodwill for it the BJP-Sena combine consistently failed to make an impression as an opposition and thus contributed to the victory of the Congress-NCP coalition The story of the Congress-NCP alliance is even more interesting In 1999 Sharad Pawar left the Congress for a second time to form a different party — in 1978 he had helped form the Congress (S) and now he formed the NCP In October 1999 despite the NDA’s victory at the Centre the BJP-Sena did not win a majority in the state The two Congress parties came together because staying out of power for another five years would have been impossible for their followers who look upon politics exclusively in terms of patronage and governmental power to accept The Congress and the NCP stayed together because the BJP-Sena alliance left them without much choice But their style of politics patronage networks and social bases were mostly common A coalition meant that they both had to curtail their ambition and share the political space Neither partner brought any additional voters to the alliance that the other could not Therefore the coalition was marked by deep dissention acrimony and mutual distrust During the 25 years of coalition politics each social section got fragmented between two often three parties Each region of the state threw up a different pattern of competition — Congress vs BJP in Vidarbha Congress vs Shiv Sena in Marathwada NCP vs Congress in western Maharashtra Shiv Sena vs NCP in Konkan and north Maharashtra and so on This period witnessed the rise of smaller parties which had support bases in just a couple of districts or sometimes in one particular caste community (as is the case with the Rashtriya Samaj Party) Ironic as it may seem the politics of coalitions was a life-saver for the Congress in Maharashtra But along with the NCP it let the opportunity slip — both parties failed the governance test and also refused to use the chance to build their party organisations With the breakdown of neat bipolarity Maharashtra politics is now poised to enter the next phase of a post-Congress polity which is characterised by the corrosion of pre-existing social bases rise of single-leader parties absence of a clear agenda accompanied by a proliferation of parties and false promises made by the new alternatives For the time being Maharashtra is going to be an arena of intrigue uncertainty and intense competition expressed through unprecedented indiscipline and “partylessness” Localism of an extreme nature will mark the elections and post-election considerations The long years of coalitions not only stunted the potential and aspirations of parties but they also camouflaged the fragmentation of their social bases and their inadequacies Therefore the coming assembly election will be yet another step towards the dismantling of existing patterns before new ones emerge in politics and in social support bases While the field of competition opens up instead of policy issues and day-to-day concerns dominating electoral politics it will be overshadowed in the short run by personal fiefdoms and considerations of immediate gain The writer teaches

20000 times smaller than a strand of human hair This scientific advance — reported in the journal Nano Letters — may significantly aid our understanding of natural and human designed nanotechnologies by enabling measuring of temperature at a nanoscale Read More ? Over 60 years ago researchers discovered that the DNA molecules that encode our genetic information can unfold when heated “In recent years biochemists also discovered that biomolecules such as proteins or RNA — a molecule similar to DNA — are employed as nanothermometers in living organisms and report temperature variation by folding or unfolding” said senior author Alexis Vallee-Belisle from University of Montreal in Canada “Inspired by those natural nanothermometers — which are typically 20000 times smaller than human hair — we have created various DNA structures that can fold and unfold at specifically defined temperatures” Vallee-Belisle said One of the main advantages of using DNA to engineer molecular thermometers is that DNA chemistry is relatively simple and programmable The researchers believe that these nanoscale thermometers open many exciting avenues in the emerging field of nanotechnology and may even help us to better understand molecular biology “There are still many unanswered questions in biology” Vallee-Belisle said “For example we know that the temperature inside the human body is maintained at 37 ° Celsius but we have no idea whether there is a large temperature variation at the nanoscale inside each individual cell” Vallee-Belisle pointed out For news updates follow us on Facebook Twitter Google+ & Instagram For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsJammu:Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti said on Friday she was proud of India’s decision to vote in the UN against the US recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel "Very proud to see that India joined over 100 countries at the UN to vote against recognising Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel This vote further reaffirms our stand and support to Palestine" Mufti said in a statement on Twitter Very proud to see that India joined over 100 countries at the UN to vote against recognising Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel This vote further reaffirms our stand & support to Palestine — Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) December 22 2017 Jammu and Kashmir India’s only Muslim majority state has always reacted emotionally to Israel-Palestine conflict in the past Bhubaneswar:Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu is scheduled to undertake a two-day tour of Odisha from 10 November said commissioner of police YB Khurania As per the schedule Naidu will arrive on 10 November evening and will stay in Raj Bhavan Khurania said On 11 November the vice-president will attend KIIT University convocation and return to Delhi on that day A high-level meeting attended by chief secretary and DGP RP Sharma held discussion on the arrangements to be made for the vice-president’s visit Khurania among others also attended the meeting "Security to the vice-president will be provided as per the Blue Book" Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi saidGodrej Factory junction and Mankhurd Bridge are among 50 accident prone stretches identified for this scheme,s flat at the Samarth Angan in Lokhandwala under the name of a German woman.
