3 Years of Modi Sarkar - A Review
Honorable Shri Modi Ji, PM of India
As a matter of your election campaign and initiatives you indicated various programs. They are (A) Swach Bharat (B) Make in India (C) Skill India (D) Standup India (E) Digital India (F) Cash less India (G) Foreign Investment. I intend making small comments on some of these.
(A) Swach Bharat :- An excellent initiative. There are two indicators of any developed country, discipline (vuq”kklu) and cleanliness. No initiative of this nature can be stand alone. Society can be disciplined if the population is under control – and the youth of the country can be kept engage in constructive activities. Can we think of National Population Policy ?
(B) Make in India :- Make in India has fallen far short of expectations. A trending social media hashtag alone will not generate jobs. Only a major boost to the manufacturing sector will. Make in India is not a new concept. This was started in the early sixties when MIG 21 aircraft were acquired from erstwhile Soviet Union. The founder of this concept was Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru the first PM of India. You just celebrated 70 yrs India Russia friendship in St Peters Berg with Putin. But we the people of India are quite sure you would not have made any reference to Nehru. The great visionary and creator of modern India.
(C) Skill India:- Centre fails in skill test. Concerned govt appointed panel says skill development program has failed in deciding role of different stakeholders.
(D) Foreign Investment:- Remittance to India slump by $6.2 bn, govt urged to take steps. The World Bank said last month that remittances - money citizens send back home from working abroad – fell for the second successive year, with India recording the biggest dip.
(E) Jobs Creations :- You promised during election campaigns to create nearly 20 millions jobs ( 2 crores) annually. But the situation is
(a). Create jobs, the rest will fall in place of the million people added to India’s workforce every month, only 0.01 % actually find work. – Says Harsh Mander.
(b). Executives search firm head hunters India said the job cuts in IT sector would be between 1.75 lakh and 2 lakh annually for the next three years.
(C). Protectionism could take us to a ‘jobless’ India. According to the World Bank, 69 % of our existing jobs will be threatened by automation in the near future.
We find no response from the ruling party on these policy dictates on such very important issues.
We have to decide – Are we
Secular Indian / Liberal Indian or / Communal Indian
Stakes are high, are we the people of India Vigilant.
