PTI Shortly after in August that year CAG organised Manthan a youth initiative aimed at Indian colleges As a part of the event students were urged to submit presentations and ideas on what the agenda of the 2014 elections should be and what the new government should address Online submissions were invited which culminated in a grand finale in Delhi According to CAG members the initiative saw participation from 7000 colleges and managed to reach out to at least one crore students directly and at least nine crore students showed interest in the event CAG invited Narendra Modi then touted to be BJP’s PM candidate but not nominated officially yet to address the gathering in the finale of the event And that’s when CAG caught his eye "Though he was not officially the party’s PM candidate (Modi was declared BJP’s PM candidate in September 2013 following much internal conflict and drama) he was one of the front-runners As a result he was choosing his public appearances very carefully and we had to convince him to attend Manthan" said the CAG member While convincing Modi the former Gujarat CM was reportedly impressed by CAG’s social media strategies Though the representative Firstpost spoke to said that Modi was impressed with CAG’s social media reach it is evident that it was not their ‘reach’ but their ideas thatimpressed Modi A simple explanation: CAG has 11000 followers on Twitter Narendra Modi has 48 million Soon after Modi chose Indian CAG to be the ‘social mobilisation partner’ of the ‘Statue of Unity’project "That’s how we got closer to Mr Modi We were primarily responsible for spreading the word about the project and help get donors etc" says the CAG member The Statue of Unity project and the discussions around it in social media made considerable news Interestingly it was possibly during the Statue of Unity project that Modi’s team came up with the ‘Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ refrain Something that eventually made its way to the BJP’s manifesto and even the President’s address during the joint session of Parliament "We made up our minds by December 2013 we wanted to be formally a part of Mr Modi’s election campaign" he says And that’s how the stage wasset for the highlights of Modi’s campaigns – the 3D rallies the Chai Pe Charchas the 185-rally Bharat Vijay Rallies that were launched in March and saw the then PM aspirant travel indefatigably across the country never letting either himself or the BJP out of people’s minds before the polls And that’s when CAG’s number crunching talent and managerial skills came to use Of the 85 members listed under the Indian CAG website’s ‘Who are We’ section at least one third are management graduates from premier B-schools across India including IIM-A IIM-B IIM-C ISB Symbiosis etc There are engineers public policy researchers media and communication consultants among others While that’s the core team their website shows that they have more than a lakh ‘members’ and 29 city chapters "We divided ourselves up in groups for various states Then we started doing retrograde analysis of each constituency in the major states" he explains A term commonly associated with chess the Wikipedia describes retrograde analysis (commonly called retro anaylsis) thus: "In chess retrograde analysis is a computational method used to solve game positions for optimal play by working backward from known outcomes (eg checkmate) such as the construction of endgame tablebases In game theory at large this method is called backward induction For most games retrograde analysis is only feasible in late game situations of reduced complexity such as a chess position where few pieces remain in play" To simplify what they did the Indian CAG members dug up all old records of elections collected data from the ground and came up with campaign solutions – much like what consultants in corporate houses are entrusted with doing for business transactions "We based our solutions on the granularity of each polling booth which gets around 2000 votes And then through retro analysis we determined which constituencies were the ones with the most impact A blanket campaign is one thing and a constituency booth specific campaign is another Through that analytics process we figured out for the party and Modi which constituency if campaigned in will poll more votes for them" says the CAG member While it seems like a pristine professionally managed campaign that the BJP greeted the nation with it was not without its hiccups Traditional political processes when pitted against newer methods of campaigning managed to ruffle a lot of feathers BJP leaders at state-levels say sources weren’t too glad at the bunch of suit-tie professionals with no history of political engagement trying to show them how their own game is played "Yes we did face a lot of ‘we-don’t-need-this’ protests There was a definite trust issue as we were coaxing them to change make changes to traditionalpoliticking" he says However Modi reportedly issued a strong diktat to partyworkersthat CAG’s strategies have to be taken very seriously "Then when we explained with data how campaigning in one constituency as opposed to another can translate into votes they came around" he says CAG’s strategising evidently didn’t end with just the local leaders The group burnt the midnight oil to chalk out each stop that PM candidate Modi should make and at what time in the course of the campaign "We designed his campaign trail based on data from the grassroots ground reports and retro analysis on poll data We had volunteers – students professionals etc – who provided us with state specific date We also did our our data collection which included demography polling history media auditsamong other things" explains a source in India CAG For example says the source before Modi visited Amethi there were three 3D rallies in the constituency It was then decided that he will visit Amethi on the last day of campaigning before the constituency goes to polls It was also CAG’s idea to bombard Uttar Pradesh with Modi – strategically organising 3D rallies in some constituencies and having Modi address crowds in real life in others "That’s when we also came up with the ‘Modi aane wala hai’ truck" the source cites as an example Though all CAG members worked voluntarily and didn’t charge for their services the project costs were shouldered by sources close to the party "We didn’t charge anything But everything else which included equipment travel data gathering etc wasn’t being funded by us Not sure who was paying for it has to be the party and its funders" says the member unwilling to take names However it’s easy to assume that the cost of the process must have run into crores given its expanse and the sheer number of individuals and professional expertise products it banked on A CAG source says again on condition of anonymity that they aren’t sure as to ‘what place in the government’ they will be allowed to occupy now The natural question that follows is that a direct inclusion inthe government cannot happen without following procedures already laid down for government services "We are not sure if we are going to be a formal part of the government or assist the government asconsultants from outside As of now we are all exhausted and are on break" he says Do they think they’ll have a role to play in the government "Yes" replies the source Do they have an assurance from either Modi or the BJP "Not really" he adds "We could also work on project basis where we pitch projects to separate ministries and work if they get approved" he says though he is not willing to elucidate on the nature of the projects yet Will a body like the Indian CAG be Narendra Modi’s answer to a ‘Shrestha Bharat’ Watch this space for more This was mid 2013.
