100 Days of Pushing Pulling and Shunting in NDA-II
September02, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com

Unlike UPA – I & II which had one Power Center in Sonia Gandhi and
everything revolved around her, there are Three Power Centers plus 280
in NDA – II, Capitalists Supporters and Pro Farmers pulling government
in opposite direction and Shunting of RSS as third power center and in
addition there are 280 small power centers who create small mischief
but create big nuisance. NDA-II Flight is not yet in Right Direction.

Principal of the Government Prime Minister of India takes Class of all
his Ministers, every weak who have to give Power Point Presentations
on the programs to be implemented and PM then Fine Tunes programs to
be implemented. Yesterday he was in a Japanese taking Class of
Japanese School and College students.

His ministers enjoyed Extra Long Weekend when they are not required to
get up early in the morning and wait by the side of land line phone to
answer early morning update.

It was impossible to remove Entire Planning Commission staff so he
decided to Shunt Out Planning Commission and replace it with new
institutions to be headed by hand picked loyalists. Sam Pitroda,
Montek UPA Governors had be Shunted out.

FM wanted PSU banks hand them their equity to private companies but PM
wants PSU Banks to expand to serve all the households who have no bank
account.

Energy Minister wants to promote polluting Coal based power but PM
assured Nepal to buy all the surplus power produced in Nepal but EM is
only interested in Coal based – even if 200 million tones is to be
imported. Solar power too is located in deserts and cost over Rs.25/-
unit delivered when long term cost of Solar Power Rooftops is barely
Rs.1 per unit. Energy Efficiency too is not supported by Corporate and
not GOI priority.

Water Minister was busiest of all – Cleaning Ganga River at Varanasi
is her sole passion but was told Ganga Basin has 100,000 MW Hydro,
around 200 BCM of water storage, and 25 million hectare flood
protection potential.

But after 100 busy days Map of Varanasi is delivered to Kyoto Mayor
for Cleaning Varanasi City and Water Minister shall no longer lead
Clean Ganga Mission.

Telecom Minister has proposed 5 times Larger Spending Program than UPA-II.

Broadband services are likely to be delayed as most of it is based on
Wireless Technology and Wireless Technology needs SPECTRUM which is
under Supreme Court monitoring.

DIPP is not RECLAIMING Shut Downed Factories that may avoid waste of
Investing in New Green Field projects. Patent Office has been Crippled
so High Skilled Engineers and Inventors can’t get IPR protection and
research & Developed is crippled.

Agriculture is in crisis – large part of India is experiencing Drought
this monsoon season but there is Drought Relief dispersed so far.

Price Rise has hit records – 5-6 Commodities retailed above Rs.100 per
kg in Ahmadabad. Some states have Farmers Market but ruling party
looks other side.

Unemployed MPs are researching Interfaith Marriage Records & Boys &
Girls in love.

Narendra Modi’s 100 days in office Hits misses promises to be kept
What we now know (and what we don’t) about Prime Minister Narendra
Modi and his NDA government – Livemint

New Delhi: Far-right economists, some of whom appear on Mint’s opinion
pages, had one view. Subsidies would go. State-owned firms would be
sold to the highest bidder. Labour and tax laws would be reformed.
Growth would return.

Left-leaning liberals, who too find a place in Mint, had another.
History would be rewritten. Forests would be despoiled. The media
would be muzzled. 2014 would become 1984—George Orwell’s version of
it.

That was during the elections, once it became clear the Bharatiya
Janata Party (BJP) would form India’s next government.

Three months and a bit later, neither scenario has panned out
entirely, although bits of both have; it is entirely possible that
with time, one or the other may indeed come true.
Tuesday marks the 100th day since Narendra Damodardas Modi was sworn
in as India’s 14th Prime Minister. There have been a rash of analyses
to commemorate the event. Sure, the BJP-led National Democratic
Alliance (NDA) ruled India for 13 days, and then 13 months, both
starting in 1998, and then again, for five years between 1999 and
2004, but the Modi government is India’s first, true BJP government.

The performance of a government and a man, both just getting
started—many say, perhaps rightly, that Modi is the NDA and the NDA is
Modi—can’t really be assessed in 100 days.

Still, 100 days is enough time to try and understand both man and
machine. The NDA took charge on 26 May, India’s strongest government
in nearly three decades. Its dominant constituent, the BJP itself, won
282 seats, well over the 272 needed for a simple majority in the Lok
Sabha.

The new government inherited considerable problems, mostly to do with
governance or the lack of it, in the second half of the United
Progressive Alliance’s (UPA) 10-year tenure. The sense of drift was
most palpable in the economic arena, where there were issues related
to structure, sentiment and administration. Through an acronym- and
platitude-rich campaign that resonated with the masses, Modi may have
given off the impression that he could wave a wand and sort out the
fiscal mess, stare inflation into submission, and put his shoulder
(sitting atop a 56” chest) to the economy to get it moving again, but
everyone, including the man, knew that was not going to be the case.

Modi and the BJP would have also known that it was not really going to
be possible to push through all the radical reforms they wanted to.
Despite its majority in the Lok Sabha, the NDA is in the minority in
the Rajya Sabha.

There have been enough points of data in these 100 days to help
understand what Modi the Prime Minister, and his new government,
stands for. The piece that follows may merit revision after another
100 days because in the days and weeks that come, with the first
session of Parliament over, Modi is certain to induct more ministers,
shuffle portfolios, create the new Planning Commission alternative he
has spoken of, and get a little more radical and imaginative. There
may be yet another revision called for after coming state elections
that the BJP wants to win, especially in Maharashtra and Haryana, that
will necessarily entail populist measures but for now, this is what we
know (and what we don’t).

In keeping with the spirit of the times, with a nod to both Modi and
Buzzfeed, let’s look at 11 things we now understand about India’s new
government and its leader.

1) The new NDA government is as flat an organization as it gets. There
is one leader and that’s it. This is a significant change from the UPA
where Congress president Sonia Gandhi was the political leader of the
alliance that governed India; Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was the
administrative head of the government; and most senior ministers saw
themselves as leaders in their own right.

2) Modi believes more in hard work and administrative efficiency than
big ideas. This is actually a good thing because, as Mint’s Anil
Padmanabhan pointed out in a recent article for Mint Asia, the need of
the hour is to fix governance and that is all about operational
effectiveness (or OE as it is called in management lingo), not
strategy.

3) Modi will tolerate cantankerous fringe elements, although he may
not really subscribe to their extreme views. Will he act on their
wishes and views? We don’t know.

4) The new government lacks bench strength and governance experience.
It can’t really be faulted for either—both are built by being in
power, and the party hasn’t been in power for a decade. Still, it
won’t do to have one minister handle several important portfolios. The
lack of governance experience also means some ministers are working on
the basis of their understanding of what will please the boss—not
exactly the best way to go about nation-building.

5) The environment and environmental issues are secondary to growth,
at least for now.

6) Modi doesn’t forget; nor does he forgive. He runs a tight ship and
appears to be keeping a close eye on what each of his ministers is up
to.

7) Like many governments that came before it, the NDA doesn’t really
believe there is any pressing need to communicate (which has surprised
people who were swayed by Modi’s campaign into believing the man would
over-communicate once in power). If anything, the only change has been
the attempt to hide the lack of real communication through an overdose
of banal news releases.

8) We do not know if Modi trusts external advisers (he did, during the
campaign that brought him to power, but it isn’t clear if he does so
now).

9) Modi is truly business-friendly, but he also wants to send out a
strong message that his government doesn’t indulge in crony
capitalism. That fits in well with the emphasis on OE and the intent
to move more government processes online—where things work on the
basis of rules, not exceptions.

10) The NDA’s values are those of Middle India. This is not a liberal
government.

11) As the whole WTO (World Trade Organization) issue showed, Modi’s
belief in free markets doesn’t necessarily mean he leans to the right
on issues such as subsidies—the bugbear of all right-leaning
economists. The NDA government is a centrist one that leans marginally
to the right.

It was always clear, even before he came to power, that Modi would not
be a prime minister in the Nehruvian mould. Many analysts, including
several who supported him, believed he would be more like Margaret
Thatcher (and then expressed disappointment when he didn’t go down
that road). Based on the 11 points above, it is clear that India’s new
Prime Minister believes more in the Lee Kuan Yew school of managing a
country, as astutely pointed out by economist Sanjeev Sanyal in a
column last month. That kind of micro-management, attention to detail,
and emphasis on execution will not work in India, we’ve always been
told. Can Modi prove that wrong?

ABOUT THE EVENT

The 2014 Lok Sabha elections witnessed the emergence of BJP with a historic mandate under the effective leadership of  Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His election campaign was replete with promises of taking India to the path of inclusive growth and development. On assuming office, Mr Modi reiterated his commitment to script a glorious future for India while seeking people’s active participation towards this end.

The new government’s first 100 days in office have been marked by a period of high expectations and huge challenges both in foreign and domestic policy. In this backdrop, Ananta Aspen Centre is organising a session on ‘100 Days of the New Indian Government’ with a panel of outstanding experts across diverse fields. The panel would assess the government’s performance during this period and reflect upon its future policy discourse matching the aspirations and hopes of a billion-strong India; especially in light of its campaign slogan of “Achhe Din Aane Waley Hain”.
