But he is still popular..!!

In the recent Kartanaka Election, public voted to BJP and the party was able to secure 104 seats and this was the single majority when compared to other parties.

Though there were set backs, he is proving that he is still popular.


Four years of PM Narendra Modi: What makes him popular despite setbacks


hindustan-srinagar-november-narendra-adresses-saturday-minister_9c73ced6-5a74-11e8-b87b-3dd7d8bd63e9.jpg

In the history of Indian politics, Modi enjoys a unique place and his personality has always sparked a debate. His political statements might have invited criticism from a certain section of society, but if you look at the politics of the last four years, he has managed to stay one step ahead (Waseem Andrabi.HT)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Despite not fulfilling his election promises, Narendra Modi continues to enjoy the trust of the ordinary Indian because of his work ethic and decorum. He has convinced the exploited and marginalised that he is making an honest effort to dispense what’s due to them

I would like to share an answer which I think is more appropriate here;

The answer was by one Ranjith
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[FONT=q_serif]Following are the reasons why Acche Din are not coming:[/FONT]

  • If you are an AAP supporter you will never see it. After all it will jeopardize your honest leader Kejriwal's chances to become PM.
  • If you are a Congress supporter you will never see it. After all Acche Din will only come when Rahul Gandhi becomes PM.
  • If you are Modi hater, Adarsh Liberal, Pseudo-Secular. You will not see it you are not concerned about India anyways.
[FONT=q_serif]On a separate note:
[/FONT]


  1. India is the fastest growing economy in the world
  2. India attracts the highest FDI in the world
  3. India has progress ahead on the corruption Index surpassing China for the first time.
  4. India's brand value has gone up.
  5. World MNC are investing in India and Make in India is happening.
  6. Road are being built faster
  7. Growth rate is around 7.5%
  8. Railway lines are being layed at faster speed
  9. Railways is under massive revamp. Along with free wifi in stations and trains too.
  10. We have been super proactive in reaching out to citizens specially by Ministry of External affairs and Railways.
  11. LPG is reaching people
  12. Bank accounts are being opened for poor. And India made world record in that.[FONT=q_serif]
    If the above few points don't highlight you about Acche Din, then my continuing with more points wont do it either. So you would know better which points do you fall into to not see Acche Din.[/FONT]

[h=1]Petrol, diesel rates: Narendra Modi govt can no longer ignore a problem it ignited, especially in an election year[/h]

FirstCutByManjul21052018.jpg

To lower or not lower the price of fuel, is the conundrum for this government. The price of petrol and diesel has reached its peak and what is surprising for the common man is that these prices are associated with crude oil prices at just above $80 a barrel. But this was not the case when the price was $140 a barrel? How is one to understand these dynamics?

In the past, under the UPA regime, the prices of both petrol and diesel were regulated by the government, which meant that subsides were given to ensure that prices were tolerable. Petrol was first to be fully deregulated while diesel was marked to market gradually and by the time the NDA took over, it was fully market-driven. This also coincided with the price of oil coming down. This helped all the parties concerned as the consumer too paid a slightly lower price.

In the last two-three years, the price of crude oil has remained fairly stable at around $60 a barrel or lower but the consumer still paid Rs 75-80 for petrol and the reason was that the government had increased its taxes on fuel to ensure it raked in higher revenues. As revenue increased, it helped to control the growth in subsidy, as well as the fiscal deficit. Kerosene and LPG are now the only regulated products.

However, in the last few months the international price of crude has increased sharply. And the reason is more in the realm of geo-politics, the latest one being the United States withdrawing from the treaty with Iran that also forces other nations to comply with or face consequences. This has added to the negative sentiment and pushed up prices. Iran accounts for between four to six percent of total supplies at its peak level, which can distort the oil dynamics. While shale production can increase, there is a time lag involved as capacities have not been ramped up adequately once the oil price had come down. Besides, shale is generally used for domestic consumption (though exports have been increasing of late). Further, as we are away from the peak demand season with the winter months passing, it is but natural that shale supplies will increase only if producers are convinced that prices are here to stay.

Now Sir leave alone the famous Modi Bhakt, VIP Modi Bhakt or Celebrity Modi Bhakt for not raising their voice against the alarming rise in the cost of petrol, perhaps they may want to be loyal to their leaders.

What is the duty of the watchdogs....? I mean the opposition parties.

Is it not their right to raise their voice, make the Government accountable for this.?

Are they not suppose to question the Government for inaction ..?

What are they doing..? What are they waiting for...?

Why they too coil their tail and keeping mum when they are supposed to work like a current wire.

Are they not supposed to challenge the Ruling Government that they will go to the general public and expose that the Government's policies are detrimental the general public and their welfare.

If the opposition maintain silence and sleep like Kumbakarna...... that may lead a layman to think that it is obvious these opposition parties are also hand-in-glove.

Opposition parties should prove they are against the action of ruling Government which affects the interest of general public.

They have already lost number of States.

It is high time, they will have to wake up and swing into action. Will they...???

Yes they have already swung into action starting from Karnataka and that was a good wake up call for all the opposition before the 2019 Parliament elections .

Sir,

I beg to disagree with you.

The undeniable fact is that in 2013 BJP was able secure only 40 seats but now it was blessed with 104 seats by the public of Karnataka.

In 2014 BJP was in power only in five States, but now it is in power in 20 States out of the country's 29 States and enjoys majority of its own in 16 States.

Its dominance is growing with public support.

In the recent Karnataka Election, initially there was no major alliance between any National or Regional Party. Each Party was confident of gaining power and contested independently in the Election. But, the outcome was a fractured mandate.


The fact remains, that the general public of Karnataka voted for BJP as a single party with more number of seats. Of course, this party was unable to secure the magic figure of 113 for various reasons and was not able to form Government, though it secured more seats than the other two.

As you may be aware, the rivals in some of the constituencies, I mean the INC and JD(S) hastily entered into an alliance after the poll results with the sole idea of grabbing power and thus proved opportunist.

And from now on, we are going to see an edge of the seat thriller, with more twists and turns, cracks, differences, contradictions, etc between these two parties in running the Government at Karnataka(not to mention the egoism, internal rifts, factional rivalry, hidden players, rebellions attempts, etc, etc)

Now, my question is as to why the INC which was in power during the last five years, was unable to retain the State....?
What was its performance during the last five years...?

Why the public rejected this Party.....?

Why Seetharamaiah last from one of the seats he contested..?

Why number of his erstwhile colleagues failed to get re-elected?


It is pathetic to note that a National Party has now reduced to playing second fiddling to a Regional Party which was able to secure only 38 seats (and lost deposit in nearly one hundred constituencies). LOL

These hastily married parties are poised to break any time now or later.

BJP was able to make a dent and both the INC as well as JD(S) have no choices of forming the Government independently. Now each trying to have upper hand over the other taking advantage of situation. Each one depending on other's mercy with a Damocles sword hanging above the head.

BJP's hopes of forming a Government at Karnataka may have been dashed temporarily, but it has not given up its dreams. It may be something like BJP would have lost the battle but may hope to win the war.

And we are missing a STRONG opposition.

Let us wait till 2019 Parliament Elections. :)

Hope this issue will be resolved shortly..

Fuel price hike issue to be resolved in next couple of days: Amit Shah


Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah on Tuesday assured that the government will come up with a solution in three-four days to keep a check on increasing fuel prices in the country.

"We are taking increase in fuel prices very seriously... oil prices have increased according to a set formula. We are working on the situation at the highest level. Our people in the government will come up with a solution in three-four days," Shah told reporters here.

"Tomorrow (Wednesday), Union Petroleum Minister (Dharmendra Pradhan) will meet officials of the oil companies on the matter," he added.

The Minister had told reporters on Monday that the issue is under consideration of the government.

"Various alternatives are being looked into," Pradhan said, adding that he would "work out something soon".

P.S: Perhaps the Opposition will be seriously going for a signature campaign against the skyrocketing of petrol prices.

From the Government of Mr Nehru, always the three items are targeted in the Annual Budgets, they are Liquor, Tobacco and Petroleum products.
The reasons given to this also not changed. Surprising no Political party has come forward in their manifesto to change this attitude.
The current BJP government is bold enough to enhance the rates of Petroleum products on daily basis. They refuse to bring the Petroleum products under GST !
I am sorry the Party doesn't seem to understand this will cost them sizable vote in the Parliament elections.

Transport cost is one of the main causes to change the price of commodities.

Hope good sense will prevail on the ruling parties in Centre and States and take immediate action to tackle this economic problem.

You are right Sir,

To some extent the State Governments also are responsible as they are also collecting tax VAT

The government has also blamed various States for increasing VAT (Value Added Tax). It has put up examples of states like Kerala where VAT has gone up from 26 per cent to 34 per cent and Delhi where it has gone from 20 per cent to 27 per cent on petrol

Government has claimed that 42 per cent of excise collections from petro products are transferred to State governments for infrastructure and welfare programmes.

So, it also depends on the co-operation of State Governments ruled by other regional political parties each following different policy and ideology.

BJP's hopes for 2019 hinges on a single person - Mayawati :)
The caste based decisions she can make or unmake will decide whether BJP will get 150 seats or 200 seats in 2019...

Oil prices have gone up worldwide. Governments of any countries cannot do anything about this other than give the taxes they take back. That will reduce a key revenue source.

People have to know that oil price can only be brought down by finding new source of oil or to migrate slowly to using other forms of energy.

Governments cannot do anything. It is all just politics at play

That may be your opinion.:)

When BJP lost in Bihar Assembly in 2015 questions were raised. However, in 2017 UP Assembly results showed that the Party was under perfect control.

The million dollar question is whether all these Opposition Parties come together ironing out their differences/inherent contradictions and form the 'Third Front' as has been floated every now and then..?

But, the BJP 2019 is going to be entirely different from BJP 2014. Now it is strong with mass support and has already spread its wings into North East.

Besides, there may be multiple changes everyday in politics especially between now and summer 2019.

Petrol price is not a political issue, it is a global economic issue. Even Saudi Arabia cannot fully control the price of crude.

But I agree that the prices should not have been frozen before the Karnataka election. That was a political ploy.

That's based on facts. In 2014 and 2017, the SP and BSP fought separately. If you club their votes in each constituency and compare with votes BJP got in each one of these seats in 2014/2017, you will see that had they fought as a coalition, they might have won with an overwhelming majority. Of course politics is not as simple as counting the votes of disparate parties. But in 2014/17 BJP had the Modi effect, which is most likely to wane. And in the Gorakhpur/Phulpur elections, BSP + SP showed a good working combination and excellent transfer of votes on the ground. That is big warning signs for BJP. Gorakhpur was a 'sure seat' for BJP and a defeat there is unacceptable. Akhilesh showed political maturity by talking to Mayawati and keeping her in good humor till now. Mayawati has already been smarting for some time after getting '0' seats in 2014 and negligible seats in 2017. It just remains to see whether she will keep her ego under control and be ready to make sacrifices for a SP-BSP coalition. That decision will reflect on 80 seats in UP + 5 in Uttarakhand - that's 20% of the overall India which is 545 parliamentary seats. Last time BJP got 78 out of these 85 seats. That is a huge dependency. As of now, Akhilesh and Maya have one full year to test the viability of a coalition, in each constituency. If they come together, then down comes BJP tally, to just 20-25 seats at best. That makes a difference of 50 seats from 2014.


BJP's Bihar loss in 2015 cannot be compared to 2017 UP win. In Bihar they fought against Lalu + Nitish. In 2017 they fought against Maya and Akhilesh separately.
The million dollar question is whether all these Opposition Parties come together ironing out their differences/inherent contradictions and form the 'Third Front' as has been floated every now and then..?

But, the BJP 2019 is going to be entirely different from BJP 2014. Now it is strong with mass support and has already spread its wings into North East.
A lot of BJP's success had to do with effective booth/seat management. In the Karnataka elections, BJP got 37% votes while Congress got slightly more. Still, BJP got a lot more seats because they concentrated on the winnable assembly seats and did booth management there. Their winning margins in these seats over their rivals was quite less but due to the first-past-the post system, they got a big tally. In Mysuru, BJP is still far behind Cong or JDS. These aspects cannot be ironed out in Parliamentary elections and will be reflected there. Now the other parties are also catching up with BJP in booth management.

Similarly BJP has had some success in northeast with defections but that's just 24 seats in all. Last time, in Assam, the perfume party fought without an alliance with Congress. in 2019 if they join together, as seems likely then that's swaha for BJP there :)

Bengal is one place where BJP will definitely improve but am unsure of anywhere else in India, as in 2014 they had reached saturation in many north indian states. In Karnataka, Cong-JDS combine (if it holds on till 2019) will take more seats than BJP.
