from the Caribbean were narrated indulgently all these years In how all the bling and partytalk and flamboyance sat so easily with pacy bowling and imperious batting that became central to conversations on West Indian cricket And sunny beaches and rum and women got seamlesslyhyphenated to paint a supposedly idyllic picture Till TV presenter Mel McLaughlin used whatever was left of her poise to definitively say “I am not blushing” to Chris Gayle who appeared to be propositioning the female journalist during a sideline interview of the Big Bash League the image of a cricketer going about this flirty gig was hardly ever frowned upon Not that the cricketer’s apology carried even a semblance of comprehension that he had said something inappropriate “If she felt bad I am sorry” can hardly count as remorse But even factoring in Gayle’s personality that’s stopped raising eyebrows this was a line brazenly crossed on air Yet Gayle’s remark was even described as “smooth” by the broadcaster before it was pulled down on Twitter There were jokes on the stunt even before Gayle cracked an off-colour one of his own — that he was merely joking As apologies go it was lame But it is because of the complicity of cricket’s fans and commentators in turning a blind eye to known offenders that it has taken years for someone to draw the line and call an international star out on his insolence The acceptance of “flamboyance” among international cricketers is so commonplace that the description of “boring” has come to be stinging The Jamaican’s lifestyle is the crux of the image he’s built himself over the years While it would be nobody’s business to call him out on what he does off the field standing by the dugout while a match is on and attempting a not-particularly clever line with a woman journalist is not civil or classy any place any day For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Updated: August 10 2017

Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Praveen Chakravarty | Updated: October 8 2014 8:40 am Amit Shah has been the recipient of unsolicited and incessant sermonising from pundits of civil society about the reasons for the BJP’s lacklustre performance in the recent by-elections Related News Alteration in the electoral landscape had a larger impact on BJP’s UP bypoll performance than its Hindutva campaign Over the last few weeks the newly anointed BJP president Amit Shah has been the recipient of unsolicited and incessant sermonising from pundits of civil society about the reasons for the BJP’s lacklustre performance in the recent by-elections There is unprecedented unanimity among political observers that the BJP’s straying from the theme of development in the Lok Sabha elections to a theme of communal division in the bypolls was the primary cause for the party’s losses The insinuation is that divisive attempts cloaked in the creative terminology of “love jihad” were unilaterally rejected by voters Were these defeats for the BJP a vote against the Modi government or the rejection of a perceived change in electoral strategy as is the popular narrative An analysis of the assembly data segment-wise of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls which the Election Commission made available recently reveals that the distortion in the electoral landscape caused by the coming together of all major opposition parties for the by-elections is more explanatory of the BJP’s reversal of fortune in 11 constituencies in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar than any other conjecture — whether development or identity In other words had the opposition parties in UP and Bihar allied or abstained (as the BSP did) in the Lok Sabha elections the BJP could have lost eight of these 11 assembly segments That is the bypoll outcomes would not have been deemed a loss now Perhaps that explains the nonchalance of Amit Shah the “man of the match” of the Lok Sabha polls regarding criticism of his electoral strategy for the bypolls In the 53 assembly segments across 12 states (excluding Sikkim and Tripura) where by-elections were held recently the BJP which had won 44 for the Lok Sabha won just 22 in the bypolls suffering a reversal in 22 The BJP’s overall voteshare in these constituencies dropped from 50 per cent in the Lok Sabha elections to 44 per cent in the bypolls Eleven of these 22 reversals were in the two states of UP and Bihar Nonplussed at this dramatic change in fortune in such a short timespan most observers have sought to rationalise these losses with ideological narratives However it is important to recall that the voter’s choice of candidates in these two states altered significantly from the Lok Sabha polls to the bypolls In UP the BSP decided not to contest In Bihar the Congress and RJD joined hands with the incumbent JD(U) against the BJP Counterfactual analysis is never a precise science Nevertheless it is pertinent to ask: Would the BJP have won these segments in the Lok Sabha elections had these parties joined hands and the BSP did not contest If it wouldn’t have won them the narrative explaining the recent bypoll losses in these constituencies is moot In the 11 assembly segments in UP where by-elections were held recently 355 lakh voters (15 per cent) had defied the “Modi wave” and voted for the BSP in the Lok Sabha elections In the by-elections with no BSP candidate these voters seemed to have logically shifted loyalty to the other regional party — the SP A simple addition of the SP and BSP votes in the Lok Sabha elections reveals that this combination had a higher voteshare than the BJP in four of these 11 constituencies implying that the BJP could have potentially lost these four seats anyway in the Lok Sabha polls Moreover in three of these four constituencies the BJP’s voteshare remained constant or marginally lower in the by-elections compared to the Lok Sabha elections lending further credence to the argument that the mere combination of SP and BSP votes had a larger role in the BJP’s losses The table details each of the seven segments in UP that the BJP won in the Lok Sabha polls but lost in the by-elections For sure in the Charkhari and Hamirpur assembly segments the BJP’s voteshare collapsed significantly from 45 per cent to 21 per cent suggesting larger reasons for the party’s defeat than mere arithmetic In Rohaniya which is part of the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency — where Narendra Modi won and Arvind Kejriwal came second with more votes than the Congress SP and BSP combined — the BJP and AAP did not contest the bypolls Hence the loss in Rohaniya is again more due to a significant change in the ballot than anything else Overall it is clear from assembly-wise analysis in UP that alteration in the electoral landscape had a larger impact on the BJP’s losses in five of seven constituencies than any significant discontent among voters over “love jihad” the Modi government or otherwise In Bihar as the table shows the BJP lost six assembly segments in the by-elections that they had won for the Lok Sabha Similar to UP the combination of the Congress RJD and JD(U) for the bypolls had an impact on four of these six losses for the BJP The combined voteshare of these parties in the Lok Sabha elections was higher than the BJP’s in four of six segments indicating that they could have won these seats as a combined force in the Lok Sabha polls Thus it is evident that a mere combination of the Congress RJD and JD(U) would have had a greater impact on the BJP’s winnability in four of the six assembly segments The changed political equations explain the BJP’s losses in UP and Bihar but not in Gujarat Rajasthan and Uttarakhand This analysis merely presents an alternative hypothesis to the prevailing notion that the BJP’s losses in UP and Bihar were due to some sudden voter discontent with the BJP Cognitive dissonance a desire to seek consistency between one’s own belief and reality often plagues our political commentary today In the world of the 24×7 news cycle the temptation to hastily paint narratives and capsule down complex electoral outcomes to a catchy headline is too hard to resist for most Reams of booth-level voter data made available by our indefatigable EC make it possible to analyse and glean from them stories of
