ModiSarkar2 Critical Agenda - 1

The elections are over. The temple-tours are over. The swearing-in and coronation are over. In the second term of Narendra Modi, GOI has to act on some critical issues at top speed. The time for sloganeering is also over. LBS coined the famous slogan “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan”. After the Pokhran tests of 1998, ABV improvised it to “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan”. The latest is NM improvising his own slogan “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas”. Catchy slogans are great election tactics and sometimes can be guiding principles in work. But I hope ignominious slogans like “Ek haath Guran, Ek haath Phantom” don’t return.

The start of the first term of ModiSarkar was marked with inexperience, diffidence and sometimes with outright meekness and fear. The best example of such meekness is the instant setting up of a “Christian helpline” over the FRAUDULENT “Christians under attack” campaign by media, NGOs, Sickular political parties and some foreign goons. Such fraudulent campaigns will continue now that the Sickulars and Paki-doormats have been thrashed again. There is no need to bend to such fraudsters. At best, respond only when the full facts are out. Shedding public tears over Vemula or Akhlaq only emboldens them. In a country as vast as India, stray incidents of violence happen all over.

The failure to make a clear statement from PMO that these need to be handled by State Police and not the PM. A clear and stern message needs to be sent out so that delightful mud-slinging by Sickos know that it will not work. Here’s a small list of priority actions (other than the usual economic and developmental activity) that ModiSarkar 2.0 cannot ignore anymore.


One of the great things that separates democracies from dictators is the judiciary. India’s judiciary has become as lazy, as corrupt and as inconsistent as the Congress or the media. Medical student Payal Tadvi committed suicide in Mumbai a few days ago. Three doctors were immediately arrested for it. Obviously, the case would be harassment and abetting suicide though there may be surprises. For a similar case, a crook like Shashi Tharoor keeps on getting bails and has not been arrested even once though he was the husband of the victim and the marriage was under seven years. I still believe Sunanda is a murder case and not suicide.

And because PC manages to get such extensions with some favourite judge, he doesn’t cooperate with the investigators and waltzes around giving political and moral gyaan and writing opeds. This is a serious FLAW. Therefore, pass the NJAC again and end this private club called Collegium. If there is a confrontation, then get rid of judges too through Parliament processes. The manner in which the Ram Mandir case has been subjected to politics by the judiciary is deplorable. Make it clear that this political bent in judiciary is unacceptable anymore. Increasingly, judges appear to be protecting the corrupt rather than helping justice. A complete revamp of courts, including investigation into assets of many judges, is now a must.

Punish the Corrupt:

Modi promised to punish the corrupt in the 2014 campaign. I can quote many of his statements. One that stands out was “People not only want to vote out the corrupt, they want to see them punished”. In the first term, a flurry of actions against them started only in the last year. There was some political fear about this. Some BJP supporters also feared punishing Sonia & Co. will get them sympathy. Nothing of that sort. India is no more in the 1980s. Modi has yet again asserted this in 2019:
If it has to happen in this term, then action should start straightaway. Ignore all the “vendetta” screams. This is normal for political criminals. Set up a task force to monitor cases. Set up a separate court, if necessary, and mandate daily hearings. The GOI refused to touch the NatHerald case for a long time and used it only for political campaigns. Every Indian wants to see the corrupt punished. And corruption doesn’t start at the bottom, it always starts at the top. Political criminals should not be sermonizing society or writing opeds. This includes media houses and personalities. Their rants on “attack on freedom of press” belongs in the garbage can. In which country does a Fincriminal get interim-bail extensions 25 times? Only in India.

In all major democracies, like the US, the worst criminals sing like canaries after being in custody for a few months. I am absolutely sure, arrest PC, Karti and all others, they too will sing like Saigal after being in custody for a few months for interrogation.


School education is the foundation of a nation. In the last decade school drop out rate has dropped dramatically overall. However, in 2018, in states like Jharkhand, UP, MP, Assam, Manipur etc. the dropout rate is still very high. Manipur has a dropout rate of 18%. The national rate may be much lower than these laggard states. The more serious concern is the high level of girl-student dropouts which is as high as 57% even in Gujarat. Enrolments aside, the quality of education, instructions and learning being fun is completely destroyed by incompetent ministers for many years. Separate the School Education Ministry from HRD. Establish a Mission to research and implement curriculum in schools. The subjects being taught in schools still have content from 1970s and uninteresting text books. India doesn’t figure anywhere in the top educated countries:
There are critical subjects (like Math, Science and Language) and non-critical subjects like History and Civics. The proficiency level demanded at schools for all subjects is uniform. And even the fraudulent history concocted by Commies into school books needs to go. Such books predominantly portray Hindus badly, portray Chinese Gandhis as some kind of heroes. All this requires changes on a war-footing. Patriots and nationalists are not born in colleges, they are born in primary schools. This is a vast topic affecting the country and will need a greater exercise in another post.

Article 370, 35A and UCC:

When the SC ruled Triple Talaq to be unlawful, ModiSarkar quickly jumped on it and passed a law banning it with some punishment. When the Bill failed in Parliament the GOI brought in an Ordinance. The SC has recommended UCC long back. The same energy needs to be shown in implementing UCC, either by a law or Ordinance. There would not a better mandate to do this in the future. When Muslims were allowed to stay in India at Partition, UCC should have been immediately implemented. There CANNOT be multiple laws for citizens of a country. Ban and outlaw the AIMPLB. This is an illegal organization that behaves like they are custodians of Muslim lives. They are not. Get rid of them.

The same goes for Article 370, 35A. Kashmir is not the property of some Abdullahs or Muftis who vehemently protest this. It’s a part of India and people should have the same Rights all over the country. Abolishing such foolishness of Nehru will bring about dramatic change in JK with investments, industries and job opportunities. The best way to keep youth away from radicalization and terrorism is gainful employment. If the moronic clan of Abdullahs and Muftis treat Kashmir as their “private fiefdom”, come down heavily on such anti-nationals who want to keep Kashmir as a hostage to national integration.

Most of the above actions are tough challenges without a doubt. But ModiSarkar has promised to act on these and have been given the mandate again. The toughest decisions are best taken in the first six months to one year of a new govt. The opposers and agitators can dance all they want and will dissipate in a few months. Shed the meekness and diffidence of ModiSarkar-1 on these issues. Social and national integration cannot be a political or vote-bank issue in the future.

Arrival - 2

Destiny doesn’t appear to be a matter of chance for Narendra Modi, it appears to be the choices that he made. All those who were born in this century and voted would have contributed to creating history. All Indians are also witness to an important historic turn the country has taken – It is the first time that a non-Congress party and PM will have been voted back to power after completing a full term. Although the results are yet to be declared, there is little doubt that BJP-NDA and PM Modi are returning to power. What final numbers they get, whether BJP alone gets a clear majority are all matters of academic interest. Five years ago, in 2014, I wrote the post “Arrival” just before the results started coming in. The BJP victory at that time came when Indians were in a gloom, the country was in shambles due to the corruption and misrule of Congress and a huge challenge lay in store for Modi. There was no leadership worth the name. It was natural that the nation invested its trust in a courageous man. And I am reminded of a famous quote:

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better” – Harry Truman

The 2014 campaign by Modi was hectic, innovative, filled with hope and in a six-month period he had held around 400 rallies. In 2019 the campaign lasted just under two months starting from March 28. Still, none of the energy, passion and determination was missing. Modi has held around 142 rallies and road-shows in all states of India. He averaged over 2 rallies a day in the 51-day campaign. The only difference being that in 2014 Modi was the challenger and in 2019 he was the defending champion. There is no question that ModiSarkar had achieved in 5 years what no previous govt had ever achieved in one term on multiple fronts. From economy to poverty-alleviation to infrastructure and international diplomacy – there is lot he can claim and a lot more needs to be done.

The most important accomplishment is that ModiSarkar is a govt free of corruption. This was so unthinkable in the past that people were even willing to condone a certain level of corruption if a govt was performing on all other fronts. The Opposition really didn’t have much to challenge Modi with. The common man will always have some niggling problems but this is one rare election where nobody talked of inflation or prices of essential items. All the Opposition had was abuses, abuses and more abuses that they showered on Modi. A challenger to the throne or a title has to be humble, not denigrate the strengths of the defending champion and must seek to earn the sympathy and support that an underdog usually gets. You can’t beat Muhammad Ali by abusing him in public. You need to have a record of past performance and demonstrate skills, tactics and humility to challenge him. Instead, the entire Opposition went on a rampage against Modi with nothing but abuses. And for a natural-born ignoramus to talk about “Karma” is the most laughable thing in the whole episode:
Karma will indeed visit the Gandhi family and all their crimes against this country. I am absolutely sure of that. It will also visit those who have brazenly looted this country and still walk around as if they are above the law. They are simply a disgrace to this great nation. The term “Karma” is a profound Hindu principle. It’s the natural law of retribution. It works like a boomerang. The good one does returns to him, the evil one does, also returns to him. In 2014 neither Sonia nor Rahul had the grace or decency to congratulate Modi. I wonder if they will find the decency and grace this time though I am not so sure.

Every political-criminal has continuously abused PM Modi for no particular reason or rhyme. Modi has not “hounded” any of them but allowed the law to slowly proceed against them. Modi has not hounded or jailed anyone who abused him, criticized him and never stopped anyone from saying what they want. He didn’t stop even abusive rebels from his own party who joined the Sickular gang. No election loss is a dishonor or a disgrace. The disgrace is in the poor character of these abusers. And these abusers abound in Indian politics, media and even from foreign media. There is a simple principle that Modi has worked with – give these enemies of India and the abusers enough space to keep their hatred pouring and sure enough, they will hang themselves sooner or later. There are many interviews that Modi gave during this election season. But one of the most poignant moments was from his chat with Sudhir Chaudhary of Zee TV (Edited video: 1.54 mins):
Sudhir asks Modi if all the abuses hurt him. Modi responds by stating that he is human and it does hurt him often. But he also says that he keeps this hurt aside because he has a “Daiyitva” (Responsibility). Meaning that he cannot allow such hurt to interfere with his responsibilities towards the country and her people. This may seem like a mild statement but this is the hallmark of a true professional in any domain. He does not let his personal feelings, hurt or anger interfere with his sworn duties towards his people and his office that demands such commitment. It takes extraordinary character and a purpose-driven life to stay focused like that in the face of nonstop abuses. And that’s a man who richly deserves that responsibility as long as he can serve.

I have cautioned RaGa and the Sickulars about a natural psychological response of people to abusing one person when they cannot combat him on performance, being uncorrupt and bringing in dramatic changes. The more you abuse a person, the more repulsive it becomes. It has an opposite effect. The person ends up getting more sympathy from everyone. And all this abuse for what? For NOTHING. Modi has not harmed these people in anyway. He has not silenced any critic or abuser in anyway. He has not taken away their freedoms and nor has he stopped them from going to courts with PIL after PIL to tar him. 
With all the counsel and advisors at their disposal, the Sickulars did not learn this simple lesson. These abusers are also backed by foreign crooks who wait on the grassy knoll to strike when they think they are losing or to help the Sickular foreigners in India. One such filth is TIME magazine:
I am absolutely sure Paki Aatish Taseer would have written this article weeks ago. It is only after five phases of voting that TIME released this garbage from someone who knows zilch about Modi and zilch about India. Nevertheless, it once again thrilled the Sickular filth in our country who danced around this trash. How TIME misleads is by shoving the more experienced political observer Ian Bremmer’s piece titled “Modi the reformer” under its BIG, deceptive headline. It’s a typical practice by scoundrels of media everywhere. Peddle a lie in BIG headlines, while a fact-filled attempt is buried in small letters. These scoundrels refuse to learn that Indians have moved past their stupid deceptions, whether it comes from Indian media or from foreign trash-cans.

There are many things that people will demand from ModiSarkar 2.0. There is a lot of unfinished business that Modi must attend to. All that can wait for another day, another post. But there is ONE thing that Modi must not falter on. He has repeatedly stated in his campaign that “I have brought the corrupt to the gates of the jail, give me five more years and I will put them inside”. The bottleneck is always at the top – literally. Corruption and destruction of a country doesn’t start at the bottom, it always starts at the top. Therefore, Modi MUST ensure faster courts, faster proceedings to ensure that the following are in jail in his second term:
There are many other crooks involved in corruption that are being prosecuted or should be. But those in the images above form the “Fountainhead” of corruption, support to terrorism and destruction of India. They must be prosecuted fast while others can follow the usual legal process. There cannot be any dithering on this. The message must be clear – India will not spare its enemies, no matter how big they are.

That said, this is not a time for the anti-nationals. This is not a time for the abusers. This is a time for celebration. A country’s health, economy and future hangs heavily on the aspirations of its people. Sometime back I wrote about the “Lost Indian Dream”. Modi has helped Indians regain their self-esteem and their aspirations. Narendra Modi is the very symbol of living and realizing that Indian dream. He has risen to the highest executive office in the country from the lowest rung of society. His story is the living example for everyone who wishes to serve the country and the opportunities are limitless. Modi will unfurl that flag of pride and hope many times more:
I have stated in a previous post that Modi has no other purpose in life other than to serve India and Indians. He has no motive to steal or stash loot for family or make corrupt deals. He should continue his good work with some major changes and greater aggression against corrupt politicians and public figures. In 2014, people of India made a dramatic change by voting a party with full majority for the first time in three decades. In 2019, though the results are yet to be declared, I am absolutely sure they have altered the course of politics and the course of the country itself forever. Arrival 2.0 is the final victory of Good over Evil. But evil doesn’t entirely disappear, it will lurk in the cracks for another strike, people must just keep it under their thumb and under their foot. For now, CELEBRATE!
