and in the refugee colonies of west and north Delhi Then we had the defanged Muslim League rubbing shoulders with a clutch of “revolutionary’’ and socialist groups —red rags to the Congress and Jana Sangh bulls And a veritable army of colourful Independents often bankrolled by bigger parties to cut into their rivals’ votes though some of them won successive elections in their own right The point I am trying to highlight is that all sections of Delhites (leftists rightists centrists fundamentalists special- interest groups and the "plague on both your houses" variety) had a range of alternatives to choose from Old-timers recall with nostalgia how they were almost spoilt for choice What happened to all that Even as Delhi has become culturally more diverse with an explosion of life-style choices in almost every other field (Mumbaikars no longer mock it as a “glorified village” ) its political culture has seriously shrunk leaving large segments of its electorate effectively disenfranchised because of a lack of choice As the polling day draws nearer many are at their wits’ ends A lot of people notably Muslims will vote for AAP with gritted teeth because they can’t bring themselves to voting for the BJP and believe that voting for the Congress in its current state means wasting their ballot and splitting the anti-BJP vote Many say they may not vote at all or spoil their ballot This phenomenon of a shrinking political culture is unique to Delhi For in contrast there has been a vast expansion in political choices in much of the rest of the country with regional and purely local formations competing with national parties Indeed worldwide there is a growing trend towards expanding democratic alternatives Even Britain which once took pride in its two-party system has moved towards multiple choices and in the upcoming general elections in May voters will have as many as four serious contenders to pick from There is another problem with what is happening in Delhi The way its politics has fractured with the collapse first of the Left and now of the Congress has created a vacuum allowing an out-and-out populist outfit such as AAP with no clear vision no roadmap and no proper grassroots organisation to emerge as a contender for power At the other end is a party which for all its attempts to present itself as a party of development remains a deeply divisive force at its core On paper of course there are other wannabes There is the Bahajun Samaj Party struggling to mark its presence; and a rag-tag collection of regional parties such as the Samajwadi Party and the various Janata Dals contesting as a single group But their visibility is zero Hardly anyone knows that they are also in the fray Even the media doesn’t think they are worth talking about None of them has found as much as a passing mention either on television or in print Meanwhile Delhi’s voters find themselves between a rock and a hard place —being wooed by two parties none of which for different reasons inspires trust It is a measure of their fuzzy policies that the BJP has decided to not issue a full manifesto and instead make do with a “vision document’’ while AAP has simply rehashed its old catalogue of promises dressed up as a manifesto The level of public “debate” between the two main rivals has degenerated into an abusive slanging match with the BJP calling Arvind Kejriwal a ‘monkey’ and Kejriwal’s party returning the compliment with personal attacks on Kiran Bedi the BJP’s besieged chief ministerial nominee The attacks have included questioning her integrity and mocking her with schoolboyish glee for her inability to make public speeches because of a sore throat Watching how Delhites are being forced to choose between electoral variants of Tweedledum and Tweedledee and compelled to endure an increasingly coarse public discourse I should be happy that I am not part of this charade of an election And in a way I am But it also makes me sad that the political vacuum that Delhi faces is bad for democracy that master of campaigning, and many palms to faces. the women of Chaka Gopalpur, "We need to understand that the world was bipolar earlier on.
