As it completes three years in powerthe United Progressive Alliance (UPA) 2 in generaland the Congress in particularshows many symptoms of CWD While there is no treatment available for CWD-affected animals as the disease is both progressive and fatalthere is still hope for the UPA and the Congress The Congressnow in government at the Centre continually for eight yearshas equalled the time it was out of office between 1996-2004 It must undoubtedly take the biggest share of the blame for the current state of ennui In 2004the Congress was sprightly and quick-wittedenabling it to pull off an incredible victory The aam aadmi campaignthe urgency to build alliances and bridges in different statesthe willingness to talksacrifice and make concessionsas well as the ability to see the larger picturewere all crucial to the success of UPA 1 By this stageUPA 1 had ticked most boxes Working around the National Common Minimum Programme (NCMP)it enunciated a series of policies and programmes that not only made it visible on the groundbut also gave the impression of a working government In the name of the aam aadmi and inclusive developmentthe government reached out to different groupssections and regions The National Rural Employment Guarantee SchemeRight to Information ActBharat Nirman ProgrammeJawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Missioncooked mid-day meal

sharp contrastit is more or less a death march Missing is the sense of urgencythe desire to inspire and pleasemake a differenceto reach out and consolidate Displaying a clear lack of unity of purpose and a marked preference for muddling throughthe alliance either waits for things to happen or reacts impulsively without necessary consideration The NCMP today seems to be history only to be dusted and remembered annually The governance deficit,policy paralysis,deep freeze and so on often used to highlight the poor status of decision-making is a result of the preference to drift in the wind Consequentlythe areas crying for attention increase day by dayfurther piling on the pressure At the same timethe display of hyper-excitability and nervousness at regular intervals has further reduced its credibility Baba Ramdevs arrestthe reaction to the Anna Hazare agitation and the Telengana movementand more recently the announcement to stop distribution of NCERT textbooks of political sciencewere all knee-jerk reactions The now dangerous to democracy textbooks were prepared based on the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005which had been approved by the Central Advisory Board of Educationthe highest advisory body to advise Central and state governments on education in the country FurtherUPA 1 itself had flagged the formulation of the NCF 2005 as one of its major achievements SimilarlyRamdevAnna and Telangana were first given a long handle and by the time reason came to the forefrontthe horses had bolted To attribute non-performance to negative opposition and coalition compulsions is blatant falsehood The Congress in 2009 had much more room for manoeuvre as compared to 2004 Firstits main challengerthe BJPwas returned to Parliament in a weakened position Moreoverit was also struggling with a leadership transition issue Secondthe Leftwhich often pretended to be the main opposition party though it was with the UPAwas decimated Its diminishing hold in West Bengal and Kerala only added to the Congress advantage Thirdno coalition-maker in the past was spoilt for choice like the Congress in 2009 While previous coalition-makers begged for letters of supportparties unilaterally offered to support the UPA Even one-time alliesdespite being left outcontinued to support the UPA The alliance definitely had the numbersand to blame the opposition for everything is trying to be too clever by half Similarlythe claim of coalition compulsions holds no water If UPA 1 could deliverdespite being a more fractious coalitionwhat is stopping a more cohesive arrangement from moving forward The primary reason is the undoing of the coalition learning curve and the failure to institutionalise a meaningful coordination mechanism Despite a greater diversity of partiesthe BJP was able to manage the NDA because of multiple coordination mechanisms UPA 1 itself pulled through fairly well because of the elaborate coordination setup in place The Lokpal Billrailway budgetNational Counter Terrorism CentreCentral Sales Tax compensationTeesta river water-sharingforeign direct investment in retail and so onare some examples of not being able to carry the allies It is clearly the absence of a functioning coordinating mechanism that makes us hear the death rattle so often Coordination mechanisms in the past have not only tackled unpredictabilitybut have also acted as bringing-together institutions By serving as rules for interaction and as a safety valvemanagement mechanisms help engage with uncertaintyposturing and disagreementenabling partners to reach compromises away from the public glare At the same timethey have helped build and consolidate relationships by enlarging the arena of commonality Most importantlythey have made partners feel that they are important and participating members of the coalition Unless the Congress is willing to ignite the spirit and passion which catapulted it to power eight years agoit should be prepared to sit and
