Am really surprised that my thread has elicited so many responses. Mohan Sir and other Modi fans need to understand facts before talking about anything. We have had eight disastrous years of economic ruin. As KVRR Sir has pointed out, the great PM and his deputy, the Home Minister, who has successfully toppled so many state governments with massive black money given by the cronies of the Government, did not even react when millions walked thousands of kilometers after the disastrous demonetization. The special trains were arranged only after the Supreme Court directed the Government to do it and after the Indian National Congress offered to buy tickets for the migrants.
Well, even today no one knows what happened to PM cares. So much for transparency from a PM who has not addressed a single press meet in eight odd years.
Forget all that. The disastrous Finance Minister keeps on increasing the price of petrol and allied products. This has ruined the economy. The rich have positively become very rich and the poor have become so poor, with the middle class suffering the most. And ridiculous schemes like Agnipath are now being talked about as solutions.
The followers have to answer this question: what were the big concessions given to the Adani group? For example, thousands of fertile acres of land were acquired when the BJP was in power, by the use of force from the Tribals in Jharkhand. There are at least five YouTube videos. This happened, Mohan Sir please note, after 2014. The great lady, who will become the President of India in a few days' time, was the then Governor. And she is a tribal.
The loot of the Ambanis and the Adanis have been made possible, only because the Government has gone all out of the way to bend every law to their benefit. Yes, the UPA regime had its pitfalls, but even the World Bank has recorded that 40 million Indians were lifted above the poverty line, only because of the fabulous economic policies of the professional Prime Minister, Dr. ManMohan Singh, one of the best economists in the world. The trickle-down theory does not work at all. Only when State support is assured, in the fields of education, health, and transport, like in Tamil Nadu, can the poor survive and grow? The concessions and the State's help in this regard are their rights. It is not an expense. It is an investment.
Mohan Sir and others, what is the record of economic management in each of the BJP states, gentlemen? Do you know that in the State of UP, public health and education are in shambles? One is not saying that Congress is all milk and honey.
But as one member has wrongly pointed out, Hindutva is the most communal agenda of the worst communal party in the world. We have a duty to defeat it, lock, stock and barrel.
