Whether as prime minister or as the leader of opposition in ParliamentModi will no doubt move from Gujarat politics to national politics But regardless of which role the BJP plays after the electionsof ruling party or of oppositionit will need a clear and well-articulated economic philosophy In the two terms of UPA ruleIndia has seen more entitlement programmes and a bigger shift towards a welfare state than ever before Although when the NDA was in government the BJP focused on public goods such as building highwayswhen in oppositionit failed to oppose policies that were against its politics Indeedit opposed some of the very initiatives that it had taken when in governmentsimply because it was now an opposition party The GSTwhich the NDA had proposed as a reform that would give India a single marketwas opposed by the BJP It also failed to support the pension reforms bill that it had proposed to give India a defined contribution schemereplacing the defined benefits scheme of the Congress era Not only did the BJP fail to support the reforms it had proposed when in powerit also failed to oppose largescale entitlement schemes like the NREGA when they were introduced by the UPA While the role of the NAC as an extra-constitutional body was attacked by BJP leaders in their speecheswhen it came to its stance in Parliamentthe party seemed to lack any economic philosophy Not just thatwhen it has discussed the NREGA in Parliament or state assembliesit has supported the policiesdemanding better implementation For examplethe BJPs concern has been that the full amount of money allocated under NREGA has not been spent Was the party going along with the Congresss entitlement programmes because it actually believed in them Was it not opposing them believing that opposing such entitlements would make it lose popular support In other wordswas silence a populist strategy to avoid a negative impact Or did the BJP believe that supporting them would somehow translate into votes for its governments in states which implemented them well In this waythe Centre would spend the moneyand the BJP government at the state level would benefit The food security bill is the latest entitlement programme proposed by the Congress Even though it is seen as a vote-fetching flagship programme of the Congress for the 2014 general electionthe BJP agreed to support the billthough it has disagreements on small issues in it This lack of opposition to legislations promising entitlements has characterised both terms of the BJP as an opposition party Modis recent speeches suggest that he believes in small government and does not support such entitlements With Modi as leaderwill the BJPs policies change It is likely that the BJP will still shy away from articulating its economic philosophy It may take the easier way out by fighting the 2014 election on the plank of Modis governance in Gujarat Howeveronce Modi moves to the Centrethe 2020 election cannot be fought on the Gujarat governance platform Even a mid-term election will be hard to fight on the basis of a chief ministers performance in the past The policies of the Congress have given us a crash in GDP growth If Modi believes in growthhe will inevitably have to question these policies and not just their implementation So if Modi is playing for the long runseeing his appointment as poll chief of the BJP as his entry into national politicshe may take the option of defining an economic philosophy that distinguishes the BJP from what he calls the crumb throwing Congress He may choose to offer an economic vision different from the muddled philosophy the BJP displayed as an opposition party in the last two Lok Sabha terms His leadership of the poll strategy offers him his first opportunity to do so The first impact of such a decision should be seen on the BJPs position on the food security billwhich appears likely to be introduced in the monsoon session While Modi may or may not become PMthere can be no doubt that he willfrom now onplay a role in national politics If the NDA does not win the electionthe BJP could again become the opposition partyand Modi the leader of opposition in Parliament Some element of the support Modi receives from corporate India is based on the belief that he will be able to offer India what he has been able to offer Gujarata focus on infrastructure and a functioning government that provides investment opportunities At the same timean element of the disillusionment of industry with the Advani-led BJP stems from its its failure to play the role of a responsible opposition party The disenchantment of industry with the Congress is ultimately about bad delivery on GDP growth Whether as ruling party or as oppositionthe BJP will need to shift gears to think more carefully about being a part of the Indian growth storyand not just mindlessly block legislation or the functioning of Parliament If the BJP continues to misbehavethen industry will also get disenchanted with it If Modi fails to lead his party to victory in 2014and becomes leader of the opposition in Parliamenthe will get the opportunity to play the role of a responsible opposition and change the image of the BJP as a disruptive party His time in Parliament will also offer Modi a chance to distinguish the BJPs ideology from the entitlement-based ideology of the Congress The crucial question is whether this is the right time Is the BJP ready for a new economic philosophy Governance issues and easier issues like FDI in retailwhere the BJP already opposes the Congressmay be much discussed in debates on the BJPs manifesto But the first test of Modinomics will be the BJPs position on the food security bill That would be the beginning of the end of the BJPs muddled era The

Lodha in his report suggesting reforms for the BCCI recommended that ministers and government servants be kept out of the administration of the sports body Former minister Veerappa Moily had earlier
