Modi is committed to his team, not to the country

After the results of the Lok Sabha elections were announced on June 4, Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India for the third time on Sunday, June 9. Newspapers started comparing Modi with India’s great progressive first Prime Minister Pandit Nehru. Perhaps this comparison was of numbers and not of personalities. Technically, this comparison based on numbers is also meaningless. Nehru first became the interim Prime Minister in 1946, then remained Prime Minister till the constitution was made in 1947, after which he remained Prime Minister continuously after the implementation of the Constitution of India in 1950 till his last breath in 1964.
If a leader takes oath as Prime Minister for the third time, then this mere qualification does not make him comparable to Nehru, such a comparison is also ‘injustice’. Nehru’s only identity was not to be the Prime Minister of India, he was a global leader, all the newly emerging and independent countries of the world were taking inspiration from him. Nehru had become the universally accepted leader of such a world which did not mean much to America and the then Soviet Union. Nehru became the leader of the ‘Third World’. He led the Non-Aligned Movement. Nehru was an international figure who was constantly providing his moral and intellectual support to the liberal movements in Asia, Africa and the American continent.

Modi was confident that the public would vote for him after seeing his face. The public understood his so-called work and voted for him, but this vote was not for Narendra Modi, it was against Narendra Modi. Under the leadership of Narendra Modi, BJP fell short of majority by 31 seats. The public made it clear that they did not want Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister. But still Modi ji formed the government with the help of allies and came back to power.

The opposition fought this election against Modi on the issues of inflation, unemployment and the plan to change the constitution. In such a situation, Modi’s getting the majority should be considered as the will of the people. But after forming the government, Narendra Modi gave all the important ministries to the old ministers. Modi Ji gave the Home Ministry to Amit Shah, whereas if we look at Manipur, Shah was a failed Home Minister. The people snatched both the Lok Sabha seats of Manipur from BJP, even after this PM Modi did not understand. Even after one year, Manipur is not only burning, but areas like Jiribam, which were peaceful, are also witnessing widespread violence.

Amit Shah and PM Modi kept speaking, the people of the country kept listening, kept believing, the people of Jammu and Kashmir endured months of curfew, leaders were put under house arrest, the internet was shut down for a historic time, yet nothing changed. At least the Home Minister should have been changed. The Home Minister was unable to stop the Delhi riots that took place right under his nose, India was defamed all over the world.

The common man is not able to understand but retired army officers are asking questions that only 7 thousand are to be recruited every year through Agniveer whereas the number of soldiers retiring every year is 70 thousand, then how will the compensation be made? Is this not a threat to national security? Even after bringing such a poorly planned scheme for the soldiers, for the security of the country, Rajnath Singh remains the Defense Minister. The same is the condition of Nirmala Sitharaman’s Finance Ministry. The country is boiling with inflation and unemployment, people also voted against it but still her position was retained. Economic analysts are saying that India is currently standing on the brink of a global economy.

In 2011, the number of credit cards in India was 2 crores which has increased to 10 crores today whereas the card holders are not in a position to pay their bills. Reserve Bank of India has also admitted that credit cards are being given to such people who are not able to pay them and take loan from any other financial institution to pay the card bill, due to which they are continuously getting burdened with debt. Due to this, the pressure on India’s financial network is continuously increasing. The prices of food items are continuously increasing, essential items like pulses, flour are becoming out of pocket, the country’s wheat reserve is at the lowest level in 16 years. The situation has reached such a point that the government will have to import wheat to fulfill its statutory responsibility of the Parliament of Food Security Act.
The person and the government who are responsible for these policies are not being changed, meaning the same policies are going to continue, in such a situation Indians should keep themselves ready for a huge economic crisis like 2008. It seems that Modi ji has formed a team and he is more committed to his team than India and the people of India. Otherwise, what other reason could there be to reinstate the National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval, who is 80 years old?
