Thumbs up Modi's vision

Now, finally, the BJP released its manifesto. it is a PDF of many pages. So, putting here Modi's vision with this Mango man's take. in Blue
  1. To build "brand India," Narendra Modi said, he would focus on 5-Ts - talent, tradition, tourism, trade and technology.4Ts are good. But what exactly is meant by tradition? If it is teaching Yoga, . If it is attacking pubs, then
  2. He said he would apply his "good governance" model which worked on a seven-point "rainbow" principle - focus on India's culture, agriculture, women, natural resources (water, land and forests and environment), youth power, democracy and knowledge.Sounds good. But the proof of a pudding is in its eating
  3. He envisaged a return to India's ancient traditions of "non-violence as the topmost dharma", "all spiritual paths being treated equally", "service to the poor" and "treating women like Goddesses".Agree with that. He better make the last piece happen in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, etc.
  4. He promised to fulfil the dreams of his seniors in the BJP: former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's favourite project of interlinking rivers. tough call. this is where his organizational skills will actually be tested. Also, party patriarch L K Advani's pet project of bringing back the country's black money stashed abroad. "If need be, we will amend the law and also set up a task force for bringing back the money," the Gujarat Chief Minister said, adding that the money would be used for the welfare of the poor.This has Baba Ramdev's stamp all over it. Good idea, but there are Swiss secrecy laws.
  5. He said he would strengthen the education sector and centres of excellence and focus on skill development to help empower the youth of the country. "Our dream is to have an IIM, an IIT and an AIIMS in all states," he said.. Why not have one in every district like an ITI. There are already too many engineers graduating every year. How about improving the quality of existing colleges than creating new ones (and having more Satya Nadellas and Sabir Bhatias). A better thing would be to undo all the damage that Kapil SIbal has done to IITs by diluting the JEE which set the IITs apart. It would of course be too high an expectation for the damage done by Arjun Singh to be undone (the reservation thing). Coming to AIIMS, again set up 100 medical colleges
  6. He said dignity of women should be a social responsibility and promised to launch a drive "Beti Bachao" against femicide. He said "if we view women not as a homemaker but as an equal partner and a nation builder, the country will progress in leaps and bounds".Good call But please do not forget this.
  7. He promised 100 smart cities across the country and said "urbanisation should not be seen as a challenge but as an opportunity". AgreeHe also suggested the idea of developing the twin-city concept like that in the developed world, calling for more satellite cities in the country.You already have twin cities in India. Hyderabad-Secunderabad, Ayodya-Faizabad and Dhanbad- Wasseypur.
  8. To fight inflation, Mr Modi suggested the setting up of a "Price Stabilisation Fund" to help the common man neutralise the effect of rising prices Encouraging freeloaders here Congress Style and said the BJP's priority would be to provide a real-time databank for agri produce with the use of modern technology.This shoud help He promised to set up a national agriculture market and said a BJP government would act against black marketeers by setting up special courts to deal with cases related to them and to provide time-bound punishment.Good intention but sounds like AAP
  9. Mr Modi promised to protect the federal structure, which the Congress-led UPA failed to do, he said. "The Prime Minister and all Chief Ministers will be a team which will take the nation forward," he said.good call
  10. The Gujarat Chief Minister promised "equal development" for the North-Eastern states to help strengthen the nation and said "regional aspirations should not be considered as politics, as seen in the last decade, but should be seen as harbingers of development". same here.
PS - I had put too many simelys. so had to remove some of them. for my pst to get through.

Re: Modi's vision

Request to Swamimm pai... can you move Sagur pai's post above to a separate thread by itself? I was going to create a similar thread, BJP's promises and how it keeps them. It was guaranteed to win a crown... and it will be unjust to get it for myself when Sugar pai has already so eloquently listed the manifesto and added his own comments. Please. (and when you move the thread, make sure my this post also gets added to that thread. More the posts better the chances of a crown.)

Would like to track all promises... and how they are kept. It will be a fun thing for the next few years. Will BJP become a permanent party for the next century... or will it be thrown aside in 5 years like another wayside rand that we Indians love to do all the time (except when it is congress)? All this assuming that BJP wins

Re: Modi's vision

Modi ne Nitish ki keh ke le li..

Quote:
Nitish Kumar in a dilemma

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar had been demanding special status for his state and had promised to support whichever party which comes to power at the Centre grants Bihar a special status.

BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has put him in a quandary after he announced in a rally in Bihar that if the NDA comes to power at the Centre he would consider giving Bihar either a special package or special status. Going by Nitish Kumar's words, he should then support the NDA if it grants special status.

Completing the sentence in red
Going by Nitish Kumar's words, he should then support the NDA if it grants special status and Sharad Yadav is made a Union minister or better Nitish Kimar himself.

They vary from old BJP agendas to aiming for the sky (like settling back Kashmiri pandits or the High speed rail network.)
I have actually put in green, the points which to me make the most sense and are not to difficult to achieve. Plus a couple of comments in blue.

Re: Modi's vision

I have some inside news that the manifesto document was readied by a 20 year old guy from Harvard. And that BJP intentionally delayed the release of manifesto to have the last word.

No of times these words appear in BJP Manifesto

I see quite a bit of Farming and agriculture too in there.

Previously communist and now Pro Cong (post N Ram) Hindu has this take
One statement that caught my boodhi aankhen is

"The opposition to caste-based reservations is now dressed up as a turning away from identity politics and tokenism"

Actually, i did not find this anywhere and Ages back (like in 2007), i was responding to Shakti Pai that "BJP is comitted to Social Justice" as per Prakash Jawdekar.
Now, this trining away from identity politics would be a welcome change.

Re: Modi's vision

What is absolutely amazing, and for this I denounce BJP as well .. is the complete absence of the issue of "population crisis" altogether from the agenda, manifesto, discussion ..

Sure enough, its not an easy issue to handle during polls, but somebody has got to think about it and bring it up.

Re: Modi's vision

Happy to see how the BJP has a sane and reasonable manifesto. If Modi manage to fulfill just a quarter of these promises, India will go a long way. To fulfill all of these promises, Modi and the BJP must be given repeated terms as PM. The fiasco that was 2004 and 2009 with Congress coming to power must never be repeated again.

Congress hatao aur Desh bachao.

Bharat karega haar mushkiloon ka paar.
Ab ki baar Modi ka Sarkar
