Modi Sarkar/Policy Initiatives and its Fallout 6/2017 (22 October 2017)

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji

Tourism Part – 1

Tourism for any country is a big industry. Generates tremendous Job opportunities, a foreign exchange earner, creates favorable image of the country to invite business ventures from abroad.
But our dilemma is Atithi Devo Bow Bow. What foreigners may make of diet advice given by India’s new tourism minister – It is generally accepted that travel broadens the mind and widens the horizons. Going by the advice to India-bound travelers from the new tourism minister KJ Alphorns, it can also induce constipation, hunger and bellyaches, among other conditions. In a moment of great insight that does justice to the portfolio he has been given the minister has suggested that since beef is becoming a no-no in modern India, foreigners could eat their fill of red meat in their home country before coming to India.
The minister further says – Because our air and water is so polluted, visitors can finish their breathing, hydration, bathing, etc before coming to India. We expect them to hold their breath while in India.
As the India’s tourism minister was not enough another controversy about TAJ MAHAL has been raised initially by cultural minister (Chaudhary of UP) about TAJ MAHAL.

Feudal Obsession :- By tilting against Taj Mahal and Mughals, BJP undermines development rhetoric of the PM After UP BJP MlA Sangeet Som bashed the Taj Mahal-the one iconic Indian monument that is recognized world wide – BJP spokes person GVL Narasimha Rao chose to stoke further controversy by describing Mughal rule as Barbaric, a period of Incomparable Intolerance. This gives an impression as the spokes person of the BJP is describing the present rule of the BJP.
One can easily say that the present govt. is not serious about Tourism. Tourists gets attracted only when the environment of the country is friendly safe, secure, and amicable. Only GOD can help this country to invite tourists.

Weakly Happenings

(a)    CM Yogi in Ayodhya. The celebrations are to be admired in Ayodhya. However what about promises of election agenda. Power, Law and Order, Women’s Safety, Pot Holes on Roads all are the same or are getting worse day by day.
(b)    PM in J&K (LOC, and IB) and at Kedarnath – it is encouraging and morale boosting for the troops. But the happenings along the LOC are on the increase. Body bags continue to be as a regular feature, when do we see any sign of reduction in such happenings. The PM also went to Kedarnath and made a tall claim of is earlier visit in 2013 as CM of Gujrat that “I would have saved the situation better”.
(c)    All these visits / statements by the CM and the PM are diversionary tactics.

 Wake up India, Stakes are high, are we the people of India Vigilant.

Modi Sarkar/Policy Initiatives and its Fallout 5/2017 (15 October- 2017)

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji
Defence Part -2

Forces seek Rs. 27 lakh crore over next 5 years for Defense Projects
High Projection comes amid face of with China, Pakistan.
Problems :
A-`India Imports 65% of its weapons and ammo, due to poor domestic defense-Industrial base.
B-  Maintenance of large armed forces pay & pensions.
C-  Arms procurements done in ad hoc manner without long-term planning.
D-  Army has critical gaps in artillery guns, infantry weapons, light helicopters, night-fighting capabilities etc.
E-   IAF dose not have enough fighters, mid-air refuellers, AWACS, drones etc.
F-   Navy grappling with lack of adequate subs, multi role captors, minesweepers, etc.        

STOP – Chest Thumping and Bragging
The PM and Amit Shah are enough to indulge in this exercise. Request Bipin Rawat (COAS) and BS Dhanoa (CAS) you don’t fall in their trap. The experts and experienced are there to make a correct evaluation of the situation and put in the media.

Weakly Happenings
(a)  Dusserah is founders day of the RSS. Sarsangh Chalak makes, say kind of a address to the nation. Besides many issues amounting to Modi Govt’s, Policy Paralysis. He mentioned “GAU RAKSHAKS” haven’t caused any harm or hut to anybody. What a big LIE. This habit of LYING appears to be in the DNA of SANGHIS.

(b)  Amit Shah is bent upon to disrupt and rupture cohesive existing social fabric of the MALYALEES. And on the other hand the President of India has admired the composite and happy driving culture of Keraliets during his first visit to the state. What a dilemma, AS would you Shut up and stop your dirty tricks. 

(c)  Govt. Hospital in Kerala many could learn from - Cost effective facility gives pvt ones a run for money. BETTTER THAN THE BEST Taluk Hospital in Punalur Conducts 80,000 tests every month at rates one –fourth of a cost of a private lab.

Modi Sarkar/Policy Initiatives and its Fallout 4/2017 (8th October 2017)

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji
Defence Part -1
What Sitharaman needs to do, to reform India’s Defense Sector ?
After period of three & half years of Modi Govt., a defense minister has been installed. Hope fully for the remainder of Modi Govt., Besides acquisitions, she must reorganize the civilian – military hierarchy. A good minister is some one who sets goals, takes decisions, has sound judgment, listens, learns from experiences, and has authority within the Govt. (Though very doubtful proposition in the present dispensation).

Raffle Deal stands diluted.
IAF had projected a requirement of 126 MMRCA (4th Generation Aircraft). The process commenced in the year 2007 with RFP (Request for Proposal) floated. Six vendors responded. 3 from Europe 2 from US and 1 Russian. A very extensive assessment process was set in. The stages were A-Technical Evaluation  B- Operational Assessment (At High Altitude, Desserts High Temp., C- Temperate Climate D- Hidden Costs E- Finalization  F- Price Negotiation. After the first Five stages Raffle of French Origin was identified to be most suitable It is only during the PNC a technical hitch had arisen between HAL and OEM, witch could have been sorted out amicably. In the mean time Govt. had changed and our extra ordinary active PM took initiative to dilute the complete deal. The PM went to France and Signed a deal for 36 Aircraft at the cost 3 times of the deal of the original process. And more then three years are to lapse and there is no sign of those 36 Aircraft. Will some body raise a question to our Hon’ble PM.

Visit of Mattis the US Defence Minister to India
He primarily came to sell LOCKHEED’s defunct Aircraft F-16 to India. Along with to transfer technology and manufacturing plant. We should not forget that F-16 is a third Generation Aircraft and this was the 1st Aircraft declared unsuitable by the IAF at very initial stages.     

AWACS – (Air Bone Warning and Control System).
The system is a force multiplier. IAF acquired three such platforms mounted on IL-76 Aircraft in the year 2010. We just have only 3 of them. To day when be are talking of two front war, we need to have at least 10 to 12 of them. Just to elaborate China has 20, Pakis have 7 of them and we are sitting with 3 of them.

b)     Abe (PM fo Japan) in Ahmadabad, even NM planned a visit to a Masjid. What a master stroke just before the Gujrat elections.
c)     NM & AS stop fooling the Janta on your economic & development achievements.

Modi Bhakats are Blind folded. There thinking and intellect has been imprisoned. They are influenced only by the statements of Saffronites or the leaders of the BJP. Even the BJP MP’s have lost there voice – voice of the people are chocked.

Modi Sarkar/Policy Initiatives and its Fallout 2/2017 (17 September, 2017)

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji
Economy Part-1: GDP slumps down to 5.7 during the last quarter (April-June, 2017).  Quite worrying but not unexpected. MMS had forecasted in Parliament on debate on DEMONETIZATION, now even global Magazine FORBES has described DEMONITIZATION as a LOOT of public money.
GST:- Though a good scheme but hastily implemented has brought the commercial and business activity to a standstill.
What the Economist Say ?
Aiyar :- India’s GDP growth has fallen four quarters in a row to just 5.7% in April-June, down from 7.9% in the same quarter last year. No longer is India the world’s fastest growing major economy –it has sunk well below china’s 6.5%. Manufacturing is the worst sector, with just 1.7% growth. So much for “Make in India” or “ache din”.
R. Jagannathan :- There is an important parallel in the challenges faced  by ABV’s govt. two years before the general election and Narendra Modi’s. In both cases growth has been sluggish, though formal growth number on Modi’s watch have been higher possibly due to a change in the methodology of calculating GDP (2% higher due to this factor). It will need an economic miracle of sorts for the economy to be kicking in favor of Modi wave in 2009.

Weekly Happenings

a)     Rahul in US – His interaction and extempore speaking was highly commendable and appreciated. Rather one can easily say this was his one of the best performances. The way Smriti Irani reacted reflected her personal hatred and dislike for RG. She is a defeated and rejected politician. And proved incompetent minister shifted from time to time. Fortunately she has the blessing of the top leadership of the BJP- NM & AS.
b)     ABE in Ahemdabad – very timely election propaganda launched by NM. What a road show of 8km. and other arrangements. All at the govt. expense. Well-done Modi Ji.
c)     All economic indicators GDP Industrial growth retail inflation are indicators of down ward trends. AS is one bragging in “Kolkata” ECONOMY HAS DONE WONDERS. Amit Shah Ji – Kuch to Sharam Karo.

Modi Sarkar/Policy Initiatives and its Fallout 1/2017 (10 Sep. - 2017)

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji
Foreign Policy - Foreign Policy is defined and formulated “In the best interest of the Country. Priority wise “Good neighborly relations” – always remains on top of any country. You started well when you invited all Head’s of States of SAARC countries on 26 May, 2014. But you fell apart within three months when you met the same people at Katmandu you were not ready to see I to I with your counter part from PAK, What to say a shake hand. Finely Nepalis P.M. succeeded in avoiding awkward situation. (In brief foreign relation in our context are to be Immediate neighbors – West Asia – Look East – and then hop across to Europe in the West - & towards east to Australia and Japan and Others).

Similarly you accorded an unique reception and welcome to XI JINPING. Within no time you reached a situation that you wanted to go to war with XI on DEKOLAM.

Why ? : You ascended on Delhi throne, making false promises, and offering expectations where the opportunities did not exist. In a nutshell a “Bundle of lies”. Same things you said while addressing the Indian Diaspora on foreign lands. You thought you have achieved STARDOM and now you are a GLOBAL LEADER. Respected Sir the objective has to be the world should recognize these attributes – as Nehru and Indra were recognized as world leader on the merits time tested. Quality required are HONESTY – Not only of SCAMS, which you and your leader brag about. Honesty has to be of words, promises and hopes. Then comes MODESTY which you and your leaders lack. HUMILITY – Not seen. Last comes CONECTIVITY is limited only to you, your colleagues are Darbari and Sycophants.  

BRICS – 2017 : Resolving the DEKOLAM issue it was identified – DISPUTES – DISSCUSS – DESOLVE – DEMONSTRATE and go head. For a change Modi Ji you displayed farsighted and maturity. If you have the right vision do apply the same with Pakis and you would see the difference in Neighborliness. Terrorism is disrupting economy, Unrest, poor law and order in secure environment lack of confidence – economic activity in the valley has taken the back seat. We need urgent initiatives in the valley to bring the normalcy as soon as possible.
Weekly Happenings
a)     Reinstating Col. Prohit is a step towards saffronization of the Armed Forces
b)     Killing of Gauri Lankesh is a step towards silencing the voice of dissent

Hon’ble PM of India Shri Modi Ji    
Modi Ji   
Your 2014 campaign started with ‘ACCHE DIN’. Followed with Swach Bharat, from Yojna Ayog to Niti Ayog, Make in India (Not new, started in 60’s with MIG series of Air Craft production), Skill India, Startup India, Rozgar.

Gujrat Model :
Gujrat is just 1/20th of India. You polarized the people and petrified a certain community by crating a division and fear psychosis. Now you have crated and environment of captive thinking, Captive Culture, Captive Media, Captive Judiciary, Captive RBI, Dictated eating habits. Nearly Driving Janta what to see and How to react.

Recent Happenings :
a)     When the State gives in to cults, Strong and timely action could have stopped  the Dra violence.
b)     Under the shadow of blind faith – just 24 hours before the happenings in Haryana the state education minister Ramvilas Sharma stated ‘CRPC 144 dose not apply to followers of Dera. They are the guest of the state it is our bounden duty to provide them with Food and Water. These people are peace loving and can not damage even a leaf.’
c)     It’s not easy to do business in India: Niti-IDFC survey States.
d)     The slowing of employment opportunity is a big challenge.
