Narendra Modi is pulling India back to the 1970s

Narendra Modi is pulling India back to the 1970s.




“Our problem is that there is too much democracy in India — that’s why difficult decisions never get taken,” declared Sunil Alagh, marketing consultant and supporter of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The bon vivant was responding to the uproar over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s shock decision to invalidate 86 percent of India’s currency. Alagh’s lament betrayed a longing oft expressed by the country’s affluent and well heeled — a craving for the precision and order of authoritarian leadership. “You know, we need someone like Lee Kuan Yew in Singapore,” can be heard in many swish Delhi drawing rooms, whose attendants are in any case inoculated by wealth against the vagaries of India’s economy.

On the same day as Donald Trump’s election in the United States, India faced its own disruption — when Modi declared that 500- and 1,000-rupee notes — virtually all the cash in one of the world’s fastest growing economies — would now be worthless. In a country where 90 percent of all transactions are cash-based, the decision came with only four hours of public notice. The stated aim of the move was to shut down the parallel economy run by tax-evaders. But what followed was chaos — amateur execution and shabby planning contributed to mile-long queues, ATM machines that had not been recalibrated for the new 2,000-rupee notes, banks that ran dry before mid-day, panic-induced hoarding and broken supply chains. In rural India especially, daily-wage workers could not be paid their cash salaries, sometimes for days on end.

Re: Narendra Modi is pulling India back to the 1970s

All the perceived wrong will be right if the results are seen on the ground. Not sure what the Govt is doing after the note ban, they are perhaps busy with elections. Let's see what they do after elections. There needs to be continuous follow through.

Burkha Dutt is soon starting a news channel of her own as NDTV is on it's last legs.

Lol. All the lady anchors at NDTV are like 'I want to be the next BD'
In trying that, one was founding a low volume version of Rnab goswami.

Re: Narendra Modi is pulling India back to the 1970s

NDTV is retarded channel. All they print is, masala news, cine news, Foreign media thinks this, foreign media thinks that. Now they have started printing massive US news, take straight from the Washington post and paste it. The other thing it does is, print opinion columns. They themselves do very little investigative journalism.

The article is against demonetization. it is playing the same old broken record.

You could have written a better article than her criticizing demonetization- better language and some new points.

Some of her stuff like comparing Modi to Indira Gandhi seems to be lifted from EC discussions

BTW, how would her fellow sickular presstitute Sagarika Ghosh react to criticism of Indira Gandhi??

Looks like Ram Vilas Paswan has put hold on this now. This would have led to inspector raj anyway.

What is there however is the note from Paswan's ministry that Service charge is no longer mandatory. The media is doing a very good job of mixing up service tax and service charge. So, one can expect a lot of discussions and disputes in restaurants when some diners will say that Service tax is not compulsory.

Re: Narendra Modi is pulling India back to the 1970s

this news was twisted by liberal media.. actually all it meant was specifying better details in the menu. A plate of egg curry has 2 eggs or 4 .. stuff like this. It was not about fixing quantity of food.. bloody NDTV and their pigs will take anything and attach to freedoms.
