every time a prosecutor goes on leave,s classic Do Beegha Zameen. Deceit is a poison in its vein? Perhaps it is a sign of how accustomed we have become to poison in our institutions that the mere discovery of poison begets more of it The latest allegations against Amit Shah in the wake of the Cobrapost tapes certainly suggest this Let us at once acknowledge that the factsas we know themmay be incompletethat the parties which engaged in the expose may be motivated But the conduct of the BJP suggests that the crisis we face is not just about how we determine guilt or innocence It is far worse The BJP does not even seem to try and understand the relevant moral distinctions And in the process it is also displaying colossal political myopia The issue is grave A state government subjects a young woman to extraordinaryinvasive and meticulous surveillance of a kind that should make partisans for liberty shudder The Gujarat government seems to take an unusual interest in this case; Amit Shahs personal monitoring is of the order you would expect for a major national security threat And the surveillance seems to have been done at someones behest Perhaps there is a plausible explanation for all this But the BJPs responserather than clarifying mattershas exemplified the rot in the system at multiple levels It has personified every fault of the Congressand then some Firstthere is the bizarre confusion of the personal and the politicalas if the state was someones personal fiefdom If indeed there were good reasons to engage in the surveillancethe government of Gujarat could have simply explained its position It could have argued that it was done in accordance with all existing proceduresand after passing all the checks and balances required for such surveillance under current laws Instead of the government answering the caseas it should havethe party did And in its defence it produced a letter written by the father saying that the girl in question needed security of some sortand condemned the use of the issue by vested interests In a waythis confirmed the revelations rather than contested them Even assuming the sincerity of the letterthe issue of law and principles is not settled The nature of the surveillancethe agencies conducting it and the nature of the information being sought seem so wildly disproportionate to the purported request And the surrounding conversation makes the issue murkyto say the least But more importantlyif there was indeed good reasonit still needed to go through the proper process of authorisation Those processes are the only thin safeguards that supposedly distinguish us from a Stasi-style regime And the governmentnot the partyneeds to defend it on those grounds The second line of attack was so silly that you almost think the Gujarat government is being set up by the party This was the argument that no one else has a locus standiif the girl or her family is not complaining This is morally otiose If there is a violation of settled procedurea violation of fundamental rightsor an abuse of state powerit becomes a matter of public concern and principle There is also the morally troubling issue that the womans agency seems to be so totally sidelined in all of this Even without revealing identitiesit should have been simple to establish that she felt threatened or that there was some reason why she made the request Then there is Narendra Modis responseor rather lack of it In case he has forgottenhe was and still is chief minister of Gujarat A question is being addressed to him in that capacity Insteadhe and his defenders have done everything they accuse the Congress of Firstallege a conspiracy Then impugn the motives of those who bring the message Allege personal targeting Then argue that the matter is sub judice And then the head of government refuses to give a straightdefensible answer What exactly did he know about the alleged misdemeanour in his government Then use every trick but totally miss the point And finallytotal blindness to the political context of this debate If the yardstick of what counts as an acceptable answer is taken from this case then the BJP needs to shut up about almost every charge of corruption it is hurling at the Congress Institutions and leaders have lost credibilitybecause instead of displaying integrity and the straightforward exercise of public reasonthey have been hiding behind a combination of arcane legal evasionsilence and mendacity In this casethe BJP has repeated the same thing But the fallout from this is disturbing in other ways It is a measure of the Congresss decimation of institutional credibility that the BJP manages to portray what the Gujarat government did as normal In Indiathere is way too little outrage at the ease with which states violate privacy rights Not one party is serious about forward-looking reform in this area But in this casethere are questions about the CBI Why does it not seem to file appropriate charges Why does it seem to conveniently leak information The Congress is bad defence does not exonerate the BJP; being equally bad is not good enough for our times But it does show the extent to which all matters of principle are now compromised by partisan warfare There are two other issues Franklyand this is political analysisnot normative judgementthe Congress is so compromised in institutional morality that if it now uses any means other than an electoral contest to defeat Modiit will generate polarisation and resentment of the kind we cannot even imagine We may all talk about the rule of lawbut the parts of the state that can give credible meaning to that phrase are few and far between So it is no wonder that both political parties can claim any demand that they properly explain themselves as a ruse to victimise them Congress has done it in corruption cases; the BJP is doing it in this case Modi also needs to understand that in a contest with unappealing choices he may yet do well But winning an election is not the same thing as having a wider moral legitimacy that allows you to govern well India has an inordinate capacity to forgive sinners But usuallythe sinners have to demonstrate that they have turned a new leaf AlasModis conduct in this case is far from reassuring The

Punam Raut helped India post 281 for three in 50 overs against England (Reuters Photo) Related News It was still 15 days into the new year fresh still with the new vows and beginnings when Smriti Mandhana’s world turned upside down She was just a month into her maiden Women’s Big Bash League stint still getting used to a new culture and teammates when she slipped and tore her ACL while bowling something she rarely does The torn ACL was to keep her out of the game for six months but more than the physical agony of the injury it was the mental angst of missing the World Cup scheduled in late June that tore her spirit But she was unwilling to leave anything to fate She determined herself to work as hard as she could on regaining optimal fitness in time for the World Cup an event she had dreamt of playing all her life Not that she hurried through the rehab but she ensured her overall fitness didn’t flag and that she was mentally in the loop careful to not drift away from the game This meant expending every ounce of her energy at the National Cricket Academy resisting even the weekend recess and brief holidays back home She worked like a focused maniac with a single-minded resolve to play the World Cup Some of her teammates swear they had hardly seen the characteristically laid back 20-year-old from Sangli look as overwrought as she was during the lengthy rehab Then her toil nearly went futile When the selectors sat to pick the 15-member squad there was an air of apprehension surrounding her fitness as she hadn’t played a single competitive match post rehab Taking someone who hasn’t proved match-fitness is risk-fraught But then her credentials were too glittering to ignore A breezy half-century in India’s Test win over England after eight years a nearly-run-a-ball ODI hundred in Australia and her risk-free stroke-play made her a compelling choice Three fleeting practice games and she suddenly found herself facing England’s skiddy new-ball operator Katherine Brunt in picturesque blustery Derby Inside her mind it must have been an emotional whirl After all she’s just 20 at the biggest stage of her nascent career finding her feet back into competitive cricket after a terrible injury It was a dream come true but it could so easily turn nightmarish if she didn’t perform A bad outing could batter her mentally even if it might not jeopardise her tournament But the first stroke that whooshed off her blade must have swat aside the grains of self-doubt that she might have harboured The marginally short-pitched delivered was pristinely smeared through the square-leg fence for a one-bounce four It was a release shot in every sense banishing her fears and doubts She bounced off this pent-up nervous energy slamming Brunt for four more boundaries three of them in succession in the next over Thus she eased India to a furious start the sort of high-impetus starts that can define a tournament These five boundaries summed up the essence of her game Two of them were powerful instinctive pulls-the sort of power she generates seems at odds with her lithe frame The three off-side strokes were an antithesis to her leg-side game Those were fluid cultured strokes-one a gentle tap behind point another a melting slice on the back-foot and the third a gorgeous back foot drive As her innings strummed along the happy paradox of her stroke-play only accentuated The brace of sixes she clubbed were akin to husky chops with a bludgeon while the drives and flicks were like the brushstrokes of an inspired artist Pity that her 72-ball knock ended just 10 runs away from what could have been a spectacular hundred Pitier that it ended with an ungainly leg-side swipe In Mandhana’s edge-of-the-seat knock was lost the efficient sheet-anchoring of Punam Raut (86 off 134) and the late dazzle of the seen-it-all Mithali Raj (71 off 73) Nonetheless these were bulky blocks that bricked India’s impressive monument of 281 runs Panic-stricken England Accomplishing the second highest run-chase in women’s cricket was always going to be a tedious task even though the hosts were armed with experienced campaigners and powerful hitters For the sheer scoreboard pressure is enough to suffocate and induce panic And panic they did at crucial points of the match The top-order perished manufacturing shots while the middle-order ran themselves out sparking memories of the contest between the two sides in the T20 World Cup last year A similar run-out spree by the England middle-order almost gifted India the match which England eventually won by two wickets chasing a meagre 90 There was no jail-break this time around – as three of them including top-scorer Fran Wilson contrived to run themselves out in the space of three overs Wilson who smacked 81 off 75 balls was the hosts’ last flickering hope and with her departure India’s victory was virtually guaranteed India eventually won by 35 runs but not before Mandhana endured another injury scare She pulled her hamstring while fielding but in the post-match presentation she revealed the injury wasn’t serious “I think I’ll be okay for the next match” she said So would hope her teammates Brief Scores: India 281 for 3 (Smriti Mandhana 90 Punam Raut 86 Mithali Raj 71 off 73) beat England 246 in 473 overs (Fran Wilson 81 Heather Knight 46; Deepti Sharma 3/47) For all the latest
