One year of Modi Govt

With Modi’s arrival, the list of genuinely non-aligned powers has grown from two to four: US, Russia, China and India.

 

A lack of coherence marks the Modi government’s foreign policy, especially in strategic relations with China and Pakistan. Nothing that has been said or done during the past year has reduced differences between India and them

 

Modi government has damaged the rights-based legislative framework without spelling out what will replace it.

 

There is significant behind-the-scenes activity to improve ease of doing business.

 

Modi is a tall leader. Then why does his government sometimes act in petty, vengeful ways?

 

Without shared political commitment, we cannot save farmers from the era of agrarian distress. Time has come to pay serious attention to problems arising from monsoon and market.

 

It is hard to take his measure. All the contradictions of India play out in his persona.

 

The Modi government is determined to dismantle the two-pronged welfare paradigm.

 

Surprisingly for a nationalist party-led government, national security and defence have occupied scant space while showcasing its achievements.

 

One of the major contributions of the Bharatiya Janata Party led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in the past one year has been dynamism it has injected to the foreign policy decision making apparatus to further domestic economic agenda and to provide India both the visibility and stature in the global geo-political landscape. The policy paralysis that plagued the Congress led United Progressive Alliance government can be attributed to the political compulsion of a coalition regime and also political dynamics within the Congress party.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that China is experiencing a sort of superiority obsession, imagining it can dominate and conquer the world.
