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.

Judiciary:

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.

Education:

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.

To be continued

  3. Two additions to list
    1 Temples be made free from the government control.
    2 Provision must be made to punish those who initiate fake news, in particular if the initiator happens to be a journalist. Case in point is the Gurugram episode.

    2. I think that temple control should be same. It will do more harm than good, to take temples out. Instead, the rightful leverage Hindus should have in this country should increase.
      For temples, we just need the right administrators and right funds for work.

  6. This should definitely be our Government's Top Priority. Don't simply assume that liberal will oppose these. Maybe your past experience wasn't good. I am identified as a liberal myself and I don't see anything wrong with what you have written? I, for one, do not act like opposition who think their job is to oppose anything and everything government does regardless of what it is. Good initiatives like education should have support of everyone. Why not? We have high hopes from this government.
    Good one. Keep it coming.

    1. The problem is the mangled definition of "liberal" in today's world. The "liberals" being referred to in the article are most definitely not suited for that label. In fact, I'd say that most people with a genuine liberal outlook, and not just displaying the title for political purposes, would more likely support the government since their initiatives are genuine.

    2. Nowhere in the entire article the term "Liberal" is used. Those who know Ravinar he never calls them Liberals. He calls them Commies or Fiberals. So you guys are on your trip discussing something non-existent in the post.

    3. Pedantry aside, it doesn't matter what specific words are being used, in this article or elsewhere. There's a more general point being made, and it still stands.

  7. Biggest hidden speedbreaker in governance is the elite babudom, legacy of Brits per Macaulayan doctrine, sheer glorified clerk cadre. Be dismantled replaced with lateral contractors per project from Need analysis to handing over keys, selected from eminent corporate, academia et al. Need of hour, priority.

    1. #2 is a dangerous demand which will wreak havoc on our country. Instead, private sector should be given a free hand in commercial education from nursery to PhD.

  10. Due credit to Modiji for HIS achievements that did NOT INCLUDE BRINGING CRIMINALS AND NATION LOOTERS to justice. BJP abd Modiji benefitted from the efforts of the ONE MAN ARMY called Dr. Subramanian @Swamy39 who they shamelessly never give credit for. The credit for Hindu vote consolidation also goes hugely to @Swamy39 who travelled very extensively all over India and abroad uniting Hindus. His efforts in #2G #nationalherald and #RamMandir cases too were never acknowledged. Modiji did not show any courage in declaring the #RamSetu as a national monument. Showing ingratitude to @Swamy39 will backfire someday. More can be said, maybe some other time.

    1. Although I am a fan of Swamy for his unashamedly pro-Hindu stance and his efforts to get these criminals behind bars (and I always hoped to see him as finance minister), that appreciation would vanish if he ever put his own ambitions / ego in front of national interest. I feel Modi / Shah have shown enough over the last five years to convince me that they must have very good reason for keeping Swamy out. I am, of course, hoping they are not personal reasons - Swamy has never spoken ill of Modi (or Shah as far as I know) so I can't imagine they are. Let's see what happens.

    2. But Sammy had written a lot about ABV personnel habits, in his book.

      This is the only reason Samy is always kept out. And Sammy knows the reason for it.

    4. Dr. Swamy39 will have and has had his glory irrespective of what Modiji does. Including or excluding Swamyji from the cabinet is the prerogative of the PM. ABV was NO SAINT but then Indians glorify the pedo MKG and put ABV on a pedestal... undeservedly so. I am sure Swamyji will continue withhis anti corruption and pro Ram Mandir crusades and the culmination will embed his name in history for his karma .... we need not judge why! Thanks.

  11. PM has to put the horse before the cart, drastic purging of the ecosystem left behind by congress commies, and with the devine intervention, path is clear from person who seemed was hurdle, pick persons from society who can be margadarshaks to revamp basic sectors, food, water, power, transport, shelter, education and health.The first six months should be breaking big bang schemes, while implementing the UCC, scrapping Articles of Constitution which are regressive, with progressive ones.

  12. Agree things need to start moving quickly and definitively as early as possible. Am also hoping that Shah's ministry award doesn't completely extricate him from responsibility on the election campaign strategy front; his talent could be sorely missed for 2024.

  13. well thought out points in the article. Now speed is the key and we are expecting NaMo to act swiftly. They must be getting into majority in RS also soon which will pass all bills easily.. Lets hope for the best 5 years but to begin with next 6- 12 months are crucial to kick start reforms in every critical area mentioned above.

  14. All the crooks like Vedra,Karti & dad,Tharoor and those in UK must be properly investigated to a final conclusion. Nothing concrete was done in the last tenure. Also start in real earnest to bring up the Economy by creating jobs and incentives to the farmers. We are the largest producer of Agriculture goods but half rots away due to lack of proper storage. Govt. has to look into these straight away.

  15. That stupid and hate filled Rahul Gandhi is already screaming that all the 55 Congis and supporters will attack Modi govt from day one.

  16. Happy read Gurudev . The curb on 04 marriages of the muslims and population control is imp for us to survive. The population of muslims are exploding day by day , there is no comparison to their bahaviour with a Hindu child including education and the dharmic prospects .

    they always nourish damaging attitude when in large numbers. They never gather to help the System like Admin police , calamity survivors except to help their Umra.

    Really sad on them.

  17. Right Ravi.These are all doable.This govt must take these up without delays.As you say it should not worry about "Noise"at national or international levels.BJP should remember the type of "Noise" national and international media and other forums raised during election campaigns.Idea was that voter will "listen" to this "noise" .What happened? There is a lesson in this for those who want to ACT.
