Three years have passed since the BJP Government lead by Sh.
Narender Modi was elected with a clear majority. The people voted the BJP to
power on the assurance of “Acche Din” for the populace of the country and the
people have been waiting expectantly for it to happen. When the question is
raised of the BJP leadership specially its National President when the Acche
Din will come the answer is that as Modi ji is PM haven’t they already come?
May be the Acche Din were intended only for Modi ji since the people at all
levels keep on remembering the Acche Din of the UPA and wonder when they would
come back! Truly, if one was to hear the tall claims of the BJP on News
Channels, India has never seen so much growth and prosperity. But if one was to
study the doubtable figures of growth enunciated by the government they don’t
coincide with a rise in employment that is in the range of 1 %.
The BJP for coming to power made tall claims of how they
would carry out task of protection of women. The number of cases of atrocities against
women has continued to rise and the government is unable to do anything.
During the days of UPA, Modi ji used to say with a somber
and determined voice that if BJP were in power the killings at the border would
stop and he would make sure that a befitting reply is given to Pakistan for
killing of our Jawans. Since the BJP has come to power at the center and their
coalition has been established at Srinagar the acts of atrocities against the
forces and Kashmiri people have multiplied by the dozen and the separatists are
carrying out atrocities with impudence. In fact even in the case of China the
threat he held out of teaching a lesson was forgotten on a swing that he shared
with the Chinese leader.
The BJP committed once in government they would bring about
policies which would ensure that two crore jobs would be generated every year.
The ground reality is that they haven’t been able to generate that many jobs
even in three years. The future is bleak and there is no visible plan except
rhetoric as to how the unemployed youth will be gainfully employed.
The lies spoken about the farm sector have hit the farmers
in the worst way. The promised Minimum Support Price of fifty per cent above
input cost was only a Jumla. The Crop Insurance Scheme has only brought about a
Ten thousand crore benefit to private insurance companies and has not given
relief to farmers. 35 farmers commit suicide every day. The Government coolly
looks the other way.
The much tom tommed
scheme of Make in India has failed, as the basic requirements for its success
have not been addressed. So who is benefitting the most? China, of course, that
is producing goods for our consumption at affordable price. The Skill India
Program that was going to provide skills to young entrepreneurs to set up their
own enterprise to generate income and employment continues to be a paper scheme
and has nothing to show for its success.
he commitment to bring back black money of Indian nationals
illegally stashed in other countries in the first 100 days was of course a
never intended plan. But along with it came a promise that fooled the poor of
the country into believing that they would all benefit by Rupees 15 lacs as a
result. The promise of 15 lacs as admitted by no less than the BJP National
president was only an election Jumla. Another lie told by Modi ji to fool the
The promise of providing housing to all and provide 2 crore
houses has not even taken off. In three years only 1 lac houses have been made which
is a far cry from the commitment in their manifesto.
The price of Petrol and Diesel have been kept high despite
the cost of crude having become 33 % from UPA time.During UPA rule even a few
rupee increase would lead to blocking of work. The price of petrol and diesel
now is even higher than the UPA time. Why has this benefit not been passed on
to the people of this country since it would have reduced transportation cost
and would have lowered cost of consumables is atotal mystery?
The Lok Pal promise
has not been fulfilled at the end of three years since the BJP does not want
another body to look at its shortcomings. There is no plausible explanation
except lack of will.The atrocities on Dalits have continued to multiply by
leaps and bounds. The promises made to provide them better life are forgotten.
Whenever an incident happens the top brass of the BJP comes out to condemn them
but it is only lip service since no action is taken against those who
perpetrate these atrocities.
President of the BJP claims that schemes are of the Government and not of any
ruling party. Well Said! But if it was so why are all the UPA schemes being
re-introduced with a new name to make them look as if they are new and launched
by NDA. In fact all schemes announced by the Modi Government are re named UPA
schemes. The bitter critics of MGNREGA are now its strongest votaries. Not
withstanding that, they make fun of poor and downtrodden in their speeches.
The Goods and Service Tax (GST), that faced the strongest
opposition from BJP led by Modi ji as CM Gujarat, is today being touted as the biggest
fiscal reform since independence. The Demonetization that was expected to bring
back all black money and stop hawala to terrorists from overseas as also stop
counterfeiting has proved to be an unmitigated failure. The Government refuses
to share the cost to the nation and how much money came back. It was followed
up by a thrust to digital economy. The nation had been promised that 2 lacs 20
thousand villages would be connected with Internet. The truth is that all that
has happened is that 16 thousand villages have been linked.
For how long would the Modi Government keep on living with
Jumlas and befool people.
The Nation pays its homage on the 53rd Death anniversary on
27th May, to its first Prime Minister Pt, Jawaharlal Nehru. With his passing away
ended an era, which had seen the growth of stalwarts who laid the foundation to
the stability and growth of the country. Nehru ji was recognized the world over
as a stalwart, great statesman and a tall leader.
We also pay homage to our beloved leader Sh. Rajiv Gandhi
who was snatched away in the prime of his youth by the cruel hands of an assassin
on 21st May, 1991. The nation pays its tribute to the great leader on his 27th
