Two Years of Modi Government

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his NDA 2 government completed two years in office on 26 May 2016. Modi came to power on the back of raging anti-incumbency. The Indian electorate was palpably disenchanted with the sagging economy, scam-ridden UPA government and dwindling employment opportunities for the ever growing young population. In times such as those, Narendra Modi promised Indians the moon. He campaigned in different nooks and corners of the country. Growth, development, employment [...]

Possible Impact of Bihar Debacle on Modi

Despite inevitable attempts by BJP leaders to isolate Narendra Modi from the outcome of the Bihar assembly elections, there is little doubt that the results represent a personal setback for the Prime Minister. Not only was Modi the face of the BJP campaign, he addressed dozens of rallies, deep in the Bihar heartland, going further than perhaps any other Prime Minister has ever gone in canvassing votes in the state. It is possible to argue [...]

FIPIC Summit 2015

In November 19 last year, Narendra Modi’s day long stopover at Fiji while returning home from Australia after attending the G20 summit was not just the first ever visit to the tiny Asia-Pacific island nation by any Indian Prime Minister in 33 years, but had also preceded a three-day visit of the tiny island country by the Chinese President Xi Jingping. Modi had then signed 15 bilateral agreements with Fiji on a wide range of [...]

Modi's UAE Tour

A warm hug with the Crown Prince of United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi, selfie with the UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and finally his no-nonsense message to Pakistan from Arab soil, “We have raised our voice against terrorism in unison from this soil. This is significant…” In no uncertain terms he asserted that the theory of “good Taliban and bad Taliban formulation will not work [...]

Modi's Independence Day speech

If Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s maiden Independence Day speech last year was meant to break the monotony of convention – to give an unambiguous message of change to the countrymen from the nation’s biggest stage. However, his second address to the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort this year was a mix of stock-taking exercise and the roadmap ahead. Just at a time when much is at stake for the Bharatiya Janata Party [...]

Modi’s silence on scams

Modi’s silence on scams

At least two arguments are in circulation to explain Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cryptic silence over the scams and controversies that dog his government. First, that his silence is premeditated and born out of calculations so as to prevent the trap laid for him by the Congress-led Opposition; second, that he has been tightlipped so as to nail his detractors within his own Bharatiya Janata Party. Let’s discuss the second argument first. The prominent names [...]

Disruptions in Parliament

The impasse over ‘Lalitgate’ and ‘Vyapam’ scam threatens to washout the ongoing Monsoon session of Parliament. After an all-party meeting convened by the Lok Sabha Speaker on 30 July failed to break the Parliamentary deadlock, the government convened an all-party meeting to save the session on 3 August, but without any success. Instead, things came to a flashpoint the very same day when Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspended 25 Congress MPs for five days [...]

Chances of BJP success in upcoming Bihar Elections

Much before the Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh made the state a dreaded place because of the numbers of unnatural deaths of persons involved in the scandal, and the links of political bigwigs in the case, it was actually Bihar that was dubiously referred to as an aberration because of the numerous scandals, political murders and dubious and often criminal track records of the politicians in the state. Recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his [...]

Narendra Modi’s Central Asia Tour

We have been tracking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign tours. In these columns we mentioned that business diplomacy, terror concerns and hard selling India as the best destination for foreign investment to give fillip to his “Make In India” campaign seem the core of Modi’s foreign policy. (http://www.elections.in/blog/narendra-modis-three-nation-visit/) “My visit to all five countries in the region demonstrates the importance that we attach to a new level of relationship with Central Asia,” Modi said in [...]
