Among the most important aspects to study are the trajectories of populism in South Asia and a general background to the contemporary or current history of populism in South Asia. Manish Jha argued that one of the important insights of populism is that there is a rejection of the intermediary between the people and the constituent institutions. She mentioned the cases in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as examples where the critical study of the practice of populism can be studied.

This would involve taking into account all the points discussed in the session, one of which would be the different scales of the different movements. One has to look at a series of variables, since one of the most important aspects of populism is its heterogeneity. If you look at the policy structure of the right, you see that it is open.

The final session of the day involved a discussion on possible publication modes on populism.

As a result, understanding the processes underlying populist transformations is not fully understood, at least in the case of India. To grasp the genesis and trajectory of the contours of populism in the Hindi heartland, it is wise to limit one's involvement within a specific time frame. In other words, out of the total population of 25.5 million, there were 12.19 million poor people in the state (Chhattisgarh: Economic and Human Development Indicators, UNDP).

Next year, with the introduction of the Chhattisgarh Public Distribution System (Control) Order, 2004, Raman Singh started the radical reform of the state's PDS. Governor's residency by the enfantly terrible Aravind Kejriwal in June 2018 along with some of his colleagues from the AAP government.

Public Lecture I & II

The term has been around for 150 years, but now we have to ask who is NOT a populist.” He suggested that there is “something wrong with the definition [populism], or something wrong with the idea of ​​populism as prescribed for people.” While pure theory has not attracted CRG to a great extent, funding constraints forced us to focus on a one-day conference.” He had two introductory points on the theme of research that was to be discussed at the conference that would follow the public talks. He said it is quite possible that the populist way of doing politics was something that the history of capitalism does not show.” He spoke of Lenin's agrarian populism in Russia and Jackson's agrarian populism in the US.

Ahsan argued that Maulana Bhashani's political career, one that spanned three decades during the formation of the state of Bangladesh, was particularly "marked for many flip-flops". However, the Maulana remained the populist figure of Bangla politics throughout his eclectic political campaigns. In the early 1950s, during the formation of the Awami Muslim League party in East Pakistan, Maulana was its first president. In 1957, he "took a left turn" and criticized the party for its affiliation with Western capitalism.

How can Netaji's attitude to Germany and Japan be reconciled with his Indian nationalism?" Similarly, in the populist politics of the Awami League,. He was previously at the University of Leiden and a HGIS Fellow of the Royal Tropical Institute, Amsterdam. While the “RSS [presents] cultural populism, the BJP proposes economic and social welfare programs aimed, on paper, at the poorest.

They are from the history traditions of India." It is equivalent to telling "satyanarayan katha and Bhagwata Puran." He defined the katha as an essential part of village life in India. They create a condition where resistance dies, it is immersed in Hindutva politics." He argued that "all icons who become sources of inspiration for the opposition" are being systematically appropriated by the RSS. "Appropriation is the only way populism works. Narayan's lectures – stories and anecdotes – show how the BJP/RSS is able to appropriate culture and why the other political parties lose out in the process." He considered the future of democracies in a populist world.


Rajat Roy gave an overview of the project Populism and Populist Politics in South Asia &. There is a deeper gulf between the expert knowledge of the economists and the interests and popular beliefs of the people. The concept of the "elite" versus the "people" is inherently an amalgamation of Western philosophy with the concept of representative democracy.

Chattopadhyay was of the view that the idea and operation of populism is both embedded in the fabric of representative democracy, more realistically, it is in its permanent shadow and it also feeds on the broken promises of representative democracy. Chattopadhyay was of the view that it is wrong to say that representative democracy has completely failed, and that the populists have taken over the elite. Instead, the reality of the situation is that the people who took over are part of the political elite.

The learned speaker believes that those in power cannot tolerate NGOs as they question the morality of the government, which is a bane of the government's attempt to maintain a moral monopoly on the people. He also echoed Anirban Chattopadhyay's reference to the government's monopolization of the moralistic state of the population, particularly in the Indian context. He made a relevant proposal to the audience about the means of finding a counter-strategy through the construction of an alternative "people".

The next part of the event was a Q&A session, during which some analytical and highly topical questions were asked by the audience. He wondered how economists would connect with radical democracy if the presentations of the evening's two speakers were connected. Another member of the audience asked Anirban Chattopadhyay if the alternative politics he was advising the public could be achieved without taking power.

The Conference

Participants and other audience hearing the conference Samir K Das, Manish K Jha, Harendar Singh and Nasreen.


Indrani Talukdar, JNU: In the Name of "The People": Cultivating Identity and the Peasant in Assam. It is thus difficult conceptually to separate the images that mark the organizational patterns of mobilization of the former leftist regime and the incumbent TMC government in the state. He further argued that the red films and the left-wing filmmakers undertake the construction of a new "left popular" in the state, which contributes to the notion of a new "people".

It has been mentioned in the 'PunjabVillage Common Land Act, 1961' of the state that one-third of the Panchayat land would be sanctioned to the scheduled caste population of the village throughout. There was no power cut in the Yogi regime and the people were happy about this. Rashad argued that the resurgence of the NDA in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections underscores the evolving political mindset of the majority in India.

Sudeep noted a common thread in both documents, that of unfolding capitalism and the role of motivations and aspirations to overcome or construct boundaries. In the third presentation, he asked when populist parties question the centralization of power. Abhishek Bhattacharya asked in the context of the third presentation how Maoist mobilization can be seen and what would be the connotation of people and participation.

Sudeep Basu raised questions about the participatory potential of populism in the context of the third presentation. On the one hand, it has carved a distinct political narrative in the field of its regional policy. He concluded that Laclau is ill-suited to the ever-changing circumstances and contexts of populism.

In other words, out of the total population of 25.5 million, there were 12.19 million poor people in the state. Because of the weakness in the implementation of the populist agenda, the popular elites became richer and the Hinduvta forces of populism successfully mobilized Adivasis and caste groups who are 'becoming Adivasis'.
