‘Achche Din’ never to come?

Friday, February 09, 2018

Prime Minister Modi's popularity is clearly on the wane though returning to power next year would not be a problem due to the divided opposition, which is in disarray and leadership vacuum to give real fight to the Party in power. However, 'aache din' as promised by the Prime Minister is nowhere in sight as most citizens struggle to make both ends meet with rising inflation, unemployment and corruption being the real issues witnessed by the nation today. PM Modi undoubtedly is a capable leader who puts in a lot of hard work but he now needs to deliver on his promises by taking tough decisions for the betterment of the nation. Corruption should be fought on a war footing and money generated or saved by targeting illegal activities, should be utilised for public welfare programmes that directly support the poor. Policies should be employment generating and self-employment should be encouraged. Inflation can come down if hoarding of commodities are targeted. Next term for Prime Minister would be challenging and he needs to work in right earnest by delivering on his promises to regain public faith and improving his declining popularity!

The 90-minute speech of PM Narendra Modi on the floor of the parliament was most disappointing and directionless by attacking the Congress rule of the past and present without realising that he is the PM of India, and not an opposition leader which proves that he was in election mood and was trying to give a campaigning speech and ducking the key questions like joblessness among the youth, farm crisis, threat to security to the nation from Pakistan-China and corruption in the Rafale fighter deal to divert the attention of the people of India without penning down any action to take the country forward. I strongly feel that the speech of the PM was of a low standard and did not suit his image and neither had credibility.

The urgent need of the hour is that he must stop attacking the Congress Party and do something for the country which under his rule, has been in a total mess for last four years in all sectors and has become backward. Instead of barking with a big voice, he must implement the promises that he made in 2014. He is just a big talker without any action, and it is only boosting his own bogus image.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
