  • Tracking performance of Modi Sarkar - Evidence only

    Lets track the performance of Modi sarkar. Lets avoid discussions and restrict to the real actions of the government.

    The definition of 'positive' and 'negative' may differ based on our ideological preferences. So, lets track all actions - positive and negative and let people interpret as per their thought process.

          Increase in productivity by MPs is a good sign.Laws are getting passed,now look towards implementation.
          The effort toward faster trails for tainted law makers has a twin effect.Honble SC has declined to give them special trials,now problem will become bigger and tainted people will keep sitting in August bodies with confidence and say that judicial system is slow and we are innocent till proved guilty, this will bring more taint in.
          Why not deny tickets to tainted people.Everyone knows who is really guilty and proving things in a court is lengthy process and people with power and money can influence witnesses,cause documents to disappear and when no evidence is placed in the court,the accused becomes innocent,though in reality he may be guilty-only evidence has not brought out in front of court.
          Mixed signals are there but all hope that the nation will come on to the track of balanced progress.

              Pre-poll noise dies off, the BJP U-turns to follow up UPA policies

              Magazine | 4 August 2014 Arindam Mukherjee
              In early 2011, when Aadhaar was being launched in the states, then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi had refused to let the identification system roll out in his state. Gujarat had its own citizens’ documentation system, he had said. Over the next two years, the BJP spared no effort to play down the UPA government’s pet project, and never shied of taking digs at its frontman Nan­dan Nilekani. Aadhaar was an exe­rcise in futility, it had then said, and if it came to power, it would give preference to the “more logical and robust” National Pop­ulation Register (NPR).

              Two months into the national government, in a clear departure from that vocal rebuff, the BJP-led government has given a clear indication that Aadhaar will continue. Why, it is even giving the project more funds. Surprised? Actually, there are numerous issues (see graphic) where Narendra Modi’s government has reneged from the party’s old stand and election-time promises. The long list of U-turns includes issues like the N-liability bill, opening up the insurance sector, unearthing black money in Swiss banks and removing subsidy on diesel.

              Indeed, that’s why many wryly say the NDA government thus far continues to follow the policies of its predecessor, the UPA government. “There is absolutely no difference between the BJP and the Congress as far as major policy is concerned,” says CPI(M) leader Nilotpal Basu. The most blatant of the U-turns has been that on the much- debated Henderson Brooks report on the India-China war of 1962. Parts of it had been recently posted online by Australian journalist Neville Maxwell, access to which was blocked by the UPA. As late as in March, then LoP in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley had strongly argued on his blog that the report be declassified. But rec­ently, Jaitley, now defence and finance minister, stated in Parliament that the Brooks report was a top secret docu­m­ent and disclosure of any information from it would not be in the national interest. His earlier blog post sudde­nly can’t be accessed.

              Even on the black money issue, the gove­rnm­ent’s present position is a major deviation from its earlier stand. After being extremely vocal about fishing out Indians with money stashed away in Swiss bank accounts, it is now saying that there is no list of Indians with money there and has exhorted the departments concer­ned to look for black money within India instead.

              Obviously, this volte-face has irked many, especially after the strong posit­ion the BJP took on these issues. Whe­ther this was because of political com­pulsions or due to a vacuous line on policy within government is being deb­ated by exp­erts. “When in opposition, you take an ext­r­eme position without thinking about the INS and outs of an issue,” says Arun Kumar, professor of economics at Jawaharlal Nehru Univ­e­rsity, and an expert on the black economy. “This is what the BJP did—it took a position and used the public dissatisfaction against the government to their advantage,” he adds. Obviously the policy status quo from a party that came to power on a promise of total change, and achhe din, has not gone down too well with the electorate, especially moves like increasing railway fares and conti­n­uing with the monthly diesel price increase policy, both perceived as anti-common man.

              What has surprised many experts is that this comes despite the NDA’s huge mandate which can ensure a fast passage of any legislation they int­roduce. Says economist Narendar Pani, “What is surprising is the government has gone with UPA polices even when there is no compulsion to do so.” This proves, he says, that “the bulk of what they were saying was election campaign compulsions. They may not have been opp­osed to the issues at all”.

              Take, for instance, the BJP’s stated posit­ion against any further opening up of the insurance sector to foreign direct investment. Even late last year, they had reasser­ted this but the government has increased the FDI limit from 26 to 49 per cent, a move the UPA had been talking about. Or the BJP’s stated stand against FDI in multi-brand retail and its promise to reverse the UPA policy when in power. That too hasn’t happened.

              Obviously, the Congress and the UPA are pleased. Says former UPA minister Manish Tewari, “It only goes on to substantiate the fact that they were only int­erested in riding the rhetorical horse, fully knowing what the UPA did was in national interest.”

              The government’s defence obviously would be that it has been in power for just two months and that much of its policies and promises are yet to be fulfilled. That may be so. After 10 years in opposition, the party may be still sea­rc­hing for the right talent pool. But there’s no denying a tinge of disappointment that the BJP’s actions belie the huge mandate it got. For now, it looks like more old wine in a new bottle.

              ***

              Why The BJP Government Looks Like UPA-3

              GST/VAT

              Then: BJP states opposed GST on issues like revenue-sharing on petroleum and liquor; ditto for VAT
              Now: Has set a fresh, urgent deadline for GST implementation. Also supporting VAT now.
              Black money

              Then: Clamoured for making public the list of people who had stashed money in Swiss banks
              Now: Says there is no such list of people with Swiss bank accounts. To look for black money within India now.
              Opening up Insurance

              Then: Even as late as August 2013, the BJP opposed further opening up of insurance
              Now: Has approved increase in FDI in insurance from 26% to 49%
              Aadhaar

              Then: Opposed and said it was a futile exercise. Said it should be merged with NPR.
              Now: Has allowed Aadhaar to continue, is giving it more funds. Will link it to new services.
              Henderson Brooks Report

              Then: Rajya Sabha LoP Arun Jaitley made a strong pitch for declassifiying the report on the 1962 India-China war
              Now: Defence minister Jaitley says the report’s release or disclosure would not be in national interest
              Diesel Subsidy

              Then: Opposed the monthly increase in diesel prices on the grounds that it will impact Railways, farmers
              Now: Has continued the policy set by the UPA government
              Nuclear Liability Bill

              Then: Was instrumental in pushing a very high liability for N-suppliers, which nixed all progress in N-projects
              Now: Liability ‘cap’ expected to see renegotiations during Modi’s US visit in Sept. N-suppliers want a lower cap.
              FDI in Multi-Brand Retail

              Then: Strongly opposed it and said that when in power, they will reverse policy
              Now: Quiet on policy reversal though asserting its opposition. Has further opened up single brand retail.

                Yogesh,
                Some of your posts (e.g. #3) doesn't highlight an action of Modi govt and is a news about market. Lets avoid such posts and focus only on the actions of Modi govt. We can of course, continue to publish such news on other thread about Modi.

                Magadh,
                The article you cited is again an opinion rather than an action. Perhaps you can reframe your post like this:

                    Yes, its unimaginable that Shourie is ignored. He is TOO GOOD..I cannot pardon Modi for it
                    I hope that Modi make him defence minister though I would have loved to see him HM or FM.

                    In general, I am mighty disappointed with his cabinet. The only saving grace are few ministers like Gadkari (despite all the alleged muck on him, he is a doer), Dr Harshvardhan and probably Radhamohan Singh.
