Both the highway and the railway line are under the control of central government, and the lone railway line since 10 July, snaking queue.In the hour it took to access the cash I asked my fellow travelers two simple questions: How difficult is it to cope with the crisis Will you vote for Modi again Although I don’t have empirical data to back me up I estimated that nearly 95 percent of those awaiting their turn atperhaps the only working ATM that December night in Ramnagar answered: "Very very difficult" and "yes we will vote for Modi again" This apparent contradiction was repeated over and over again during my trip The forest officials who took us on a guided tour in the park the cap and gloves selling youth near the national park gates the kind gentleman who drove us to Delhi the ‘Santa hat’ seller at Rajiv Chowk the autorickshaw driver on the streets of the capital — most of these hardworking everyday gladiators who complained bitterly about their daily hardships announced resolutely that they would vote for Modi—in fact it seemed their hardship was directly proportional to the belief that the prime minister had initiated a "purification" ritual and it was their sacred duty to support him and build a cleaner India Personal hardships didn’t matter they were busy contributing towards the nation-building process My experience was not unlike the one Radhika Iyengar shares in Indian Express She writes: "Recently my domestic help candidly informed me how demonetisation has plummeted her further into poverty She was scrounging for money and was taking leave to return to her village where marriages had been broken jobs had been lost and people had died When I asked her whether this would stop her from voting for Modi in the next elections she said it would not ‘This move of his is a strong step which will really remove black money’ she told me with uncanny confidence She really believed in Modi" Call it a morality play a wily political plot or a mad gamble it was evident that the public trusted Modi In our analyses we tend to underestimate the power of faith The electorate’s confidence in Modi — even after such a disruptive move — bordered almost on the religious If anything the boldness of the decision seemed to have reinforced their belief Not surprisingly Modi’s political rivals and the cognoscenti completely missed the point TV debates raged on the "foolishness" of the move Economists said it was meaningless if not counterproductive Critics predicted that Modi would pay dearly for his hubris The Opposition saw the misery and tried to exploit it but like the one-eyed king they failed to note the groundswell of support and paid a heavy political price Three years into his tenure as the prime minister Modi’s biggest achievement has been this: He has been able to restore the electorate’s trust in the government It is easy to miss the significance of this triumph And yet this is a tectonic change that promises to entirely transform the paradigm of communication between the government and the electorate If the holder of India’s most powerful public office is able to convince people that he is incorruptible cares for them and means to build the nation then the leader is allowed a surprising amount of leeway for mistakes which is otherwise denied to most politicians This is exactly why Modi could pull off such a stunningly disruptive move and yet retain high approval ratings And this also what the Opposition failed to see To a certain extent Modi was dealt a kind hand He occupied the chair left vacant by Manmohan Singh who presided over one of the most scam-tainted regimes in the history of Indian politics The electorate was exposed to corruption in high office for so long that an inverted morality became the new paradigm Voters took corruption as the norm and developed a deep-rooted cynicism in the political class The roots of this cynicism lie in the failed socialist project and crony capitalism during the decades that followed Independence Under UPA the cloud grew darker So while it would be pertinent to say that Modi benefited from the low burden of expectations he also needed to turn around the cynicism to make an impact And given that most of Modi’s moves were transformative and participative in nature many of these bold steps couldn’t have been carried out had the electorate suffered from a trust deficit To that respect Modi has performed a near impossible task Now the stage is set for him to build on this partnership of trust between the government and the people strange as it may sound.
