Has the BJP become an ‘election winning machine’?

Sunday, 3 December 2017

While a hectic campaign is on for the Gujarat assembly election, the BJP has gained ground in the municipal corporation polls in Uttar Pradesh, which concluded last week.

UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had made it a big prestige issue, as this was the first electoral test after his victory in the last assembly elections. Even as the opposition drives the political agenda of GST implementation issues and demonetisation causing large scale unemployment, the BJP seems to be winning every small
election happening in the country.

Choking airports leading to more fuel wastes and delays

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Lack of planning over the last 20 years by the Indian government and no execution of new expansion projects at airports has badly affected airlines and passengers in the last few years and will hit even in a worse manner in the coming years. Most Indian airports in metro cities now see a capacity utilisation at almost 100 per cent level and some even experience it beyond that level.

Alliance partners left red-faced; media kept clueless as Modi takes bold steps

Sunday, 3 September 2017

The much awaited and anticipated expansion of the Union Cabinet was announced on Sunday just before Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for China. This is perhaps the last reshuffle of the Modi government Council of Ministers before the next big political test Modi faces in 2019. In that sense, all eyes were on the Cabinet expansion.

Beyond political debate, India needs measures to revive growth

As the overall figures for the last quarter’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) were released on Thursday, there was a clear indication that the BJP spokespersons that usually are out aggressively to defend the government every night on media, were not seen on national news TV at all. Instead, some bureaucrats were seen arguing how this slowdown had nothing to do with the demonetisation announced by the Prime Minister in last year’s November.

After me the deluge’ attitude has put the lively city of Mumbai on the brink

Wednesday, 30 August 2017

‘Après nous, le déluge’ or ‘After us, the flood’ is a French expression, attributed to Madame de Pompadour, the lover of King Louis XV of France. An alternative form, attributed to Louis himself, is ‘Après moi, le déluge’ which literally means ‘After me the floods’.

It refers to the king who creates such a situation that the socio-political environment would not exist unless he is in power. In a sense, the expression exhibits the callous, selfish and cunning approach of the king who does not care about what would happen to his subjects and the kingdom after he is gone!

Are global trade experts right in thinking India’s reforms are more tokenism

Monday, 10 July 2017

On the backdrop of the recently concluded G20 summit in Germany, some international trade specialists speaking about India’s economic reforms said that the process is more about tokenism than any actual change on the ground!

These comments may sound a bit harsh given the political will that the central government has started showing with changes in insurance sector, civil aviation sector and indirect taxation system, but criticism can also not be brushed aside because this is the perception international business community has about Modi and his government.
