It’s the right time for BJP to win back people’s confidence by taking an aggressive stand in the fight against corruption and honor Hindutva commitment
One Man Army Dr Swamy makes it very clear that elections are won on a combination of factors. In the case for 2019 general elections it, can be won with the fight against Corruption, honor Hindutva commitment and good Governance / Development.
On the similar groundwork of the above combination, it was possible for Modi-led BJP to win in 2014 elections.
Good Governance/Development alone is not sufficient to win the elections.
Tripod Combination of – fight against Corruption, Hindutva agenda, Governance/Development will help gain a total majority in 2019 General elections.
Past track record of Govt which had development as its agenda has performed well but has always received debacle in the election.
On the Economy front, everything appears to be going smoothly. The actual story is quite different, it requires top priority in terms of course correction.
Starting from PM PV Narasimha Rao in 1991-96 (who successfully introduced major economic reforms), PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee – 1999-2004 (during whose tenure India saw substantial economic growth), AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, to Karnataka CM SM Krishna, in spite of giving good performance all of them had to bow out of power.
Another message from Dr. Swamy which is loud and clear is that there is someone within the present BJP Govt who is safeguarding ex FM P Chidambaram in all corruption cases.
Similarly, many other past regime corruption cases are also brushed under the carpet. Someone at the top level from the ministry is involved in this dubious crime to hush-up matters.
Dr.Swamy with his tweet has indicated that there is a secret brotherhood between BJP/UPA/Politicians/bureaucrats/lawyers to protect each other. This has delayed BJP’s Anti-Corruption Campaign.
Some of the past regimes stooges in Bureaucracy, Investigating Agencies and Senior Officials are rewarded by the present Govt because of the dubious nexus, which is a matter of concern, as things are getting manipulated for the benefit of the corrupt.
The investigations are getting blotched up, the pieces of evidence are destroyed, honest investigating officers are harassed/transferred, law officers are prevented from functioning or forced to present weak cases during prosecution in court. In the end, the accused walks scot-free. The 2G scam is an example in which all the accused walked free. The commitment to fight corruption and justice should prevail.
The commitment to Hindus should be honored considering the sentiment of the masses. The faith and aspirations of millions of Hindus to see magnificent Shri Ram Mandir at Ayodhya is still a distant dream. There seems to be no initiative from the Govt to resolve the matter. Few within the party are more concerned to delay the case and want to avoid crediting a certain individual, who is spearheading the legal process for speedy disposal of the verdict. The Hindus in Jammu region are totally alienated from BJP, due to its partnership with Pro-Pakistan PDP. Uniform Civil Code and abrogating Article 370 is not even discussed.
On the economy front, everything appears to be going smoothly. the actual story is quite different, it requires top priority in terms of course correction.
Return of black money from foreign banks has become a non-issue. DeMo was a good initiative but the unpreparedness and shoddy ground implementation took the shine out of it. GST started on a wrong foot and every now and then, we are seeing changes on trial & error basis. The banking sector considered as the backbone of Indian Economy is in turmoil. The rising fuel prices with higher inflation and unemployment is adding to the woes of the people. This is not what was expected from Modi Sarkar!!!
To summarize the above:
- The commitment to fight corruption and justice should prevail.
- The commitment to Hindus should be honored considering the sentiment of the masses.
- Our economy requires out of box futuristic measures and implementation.
