Modi-Shah duo leaves mainstream media aghast yet again!

The Modi-Shah duo has yet again foxed not only its opponents but also the mainstream media whose lifeline is reporting political events. People wake up to read that the Maharashtra government may be formed anytime after November 24 with Shiv Sena chief Udhdhav Thackrey to lead the government as chief minister for full five year term but even before tea was served to many an old proverb proved to be correct that there is many a slip between the cup and the lip.

Indian mass media thrive on the very dictum of eat politics, drink politics and sleep politics but it miserably failed to foresee the most crucial political development of the country despite 60-70 per cent content offered in any mainstream media being political in nature. They even failed to make out of 45-minutes long meeting between the PM and NCP chief Sharad Pawar when the media witnessed many surprises of the BJP in the past.

It is understood that media failed to get any inkling about abrogation of Article 370, surgical strike and Balakote attack and even the nomination of President but it was really amusing that the formation of Maharashtra government broke just before the swearing in of Devendra Fadnavis which is an out and out political development. The PM tweeted a congratulatory message at 8.14 AM to Maharashtra CM and deputy putting the curtain down on over a fortnight long drama leaving everyone dumbstruck.

Is there any match for full-time politics of BJP to part time engagement of Opposition?

What has happened in Maharashtra, no one would have even imagined. This makes the point very clear that it is really impossible to read minds of the duo – PM Narendra Modi and HM Amit Shah – not only in terms of turn of events in the recent past but from the very time the Bharatiya Janata Party had formed the government for the first time at the Centre in 2014 under Modi. Both the leaders are scrupulously involved in full time politics unlike their opponent and they do everything with élan. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that they eat, drink and sleep politics.

To understand the kind of politics they do, having a look at the recent developments is very pertinent when BJP’s own ally Shiv Sena was busy ranting against the party over the issue of its claim over chief minister’s post in Maharashtra. Looking at the hindsight, it appears that the BJP was working on its plans however it looked as if the BJP was intimidated by the SS and got confined to its cells. But it kept silent and had told its leaders to keep patience and they continued with their plans where no one would have imagined.

The full time politics of the BJP leaders had caught the opposition napping many a times. The BJP has brought election narrative to nationalism from various other issues with its full time strategy with one after another move. There is a genre of politicians involved in making money and is involved in many other such things like being lawyers, builders, businessman, corporate lobbyists and what not but Modi-Shah are fully focused on politics of the country from issues Brue refugees to formation of Maharashtra government. They always keep multiple options as if one does not work the other is ready.

The Modi-Shah duo work 24X7 in tandem with each other for politics in India as abrogating Article 370, Balakot strike, surgical strike, demonatisation, GST implementation, NRC, Citizenship Bill, Law against Triple Talaq and the latest being withdrawal of SPG from Gandhis cannot not be done with half baked measures. Do they have any match in the country at least for now?

SC writes history with Ayodhya verdict but NaMo Govt incredible too!

By IndianMandarins 10 Nov 2019

With the pronouncement of judgment on title suit on Ramjanmabhoomi and Babri mosque, a long standing dispute between Hindu and Muslims seems to be over with all credit goes to the judiciary but no less acclaim could be given to the NaMo administration as the matter has been resolved during the time Narendra Modi at the helm.

What is more interesting is that the country responded very well to the decision except a few aberrations. Unlike phrase used by wordsmiths in such a situation that ‘eerie silence prevails’, now people are of the view that the Supreme Court has decided the matter in most judicious manner and most importantly unanimously. So let’s bury the hatchet and move on.

Despite the provocation made by the opposition that Ram Temple will be made an election issue by the BJP to polarize Hindu votes in view of Sangh Pariwar demanding day-to-day hearing in the court and VHP putting pressure on the government to bring a legislation in Parliament in this regard. They were also planning to start a movement similar to their movement in 1990s. But suddenly the VHP went into shells and postponed the matter for post election scenario but for obvious reasons.

The PM was very categorical when he had made it clear in election rallies that the matter is in the court and let the court take a call on it. He was so cautious about his constitutional obligation that despite visiting Faizabad for an election rally around 30 kilometres away from Ayodhya, he avoided temptation of paying his obeisance to Ram Lalla.

The day of decision on one of the most vexed issue of the modern times passed normally and the morning is even better with history being made not only in Ayodhya but also at Kartarpur. The Ayodhya issue that has an around 500-year old history soaked with blood of innocent people and if this was none of our business kind of attitude of British that made the matter remain indecisive. A particular blend of politics kept it alive post-independent and later on the issue turning into vote-bank politics without any exception in terms of beneficiaries.

But for the apt handling of the issue by the present dispensation has not only saved many innocent lives but country as such has come to the term to put a lid on political Djin of Ayodhya. The government has done a Jammu and Kashmir in Uttar Pradesh with taking all possible measures supported by intelligence inputs. But this was not enough, the Sangh Pariwar has entrusted senior functionaries like Krishna Gopal and Ram Lal to establish dialogue with Muslim community and Hindus to accept the judgment whatever it could be.

Jamiat Ulama e Hind chief Maulana Arshad Madani meeting RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Mehmood Madani meeting Krishna Gopal was something unimaginable. Two important seats of Nizamuddin Aulia and Ajmer Sharief appealing to accept the SC judgment the way it is has worked among the Muslim community.

Besides the judiciary and the Modi government, the department of justice will also be remembered whenever this issue is talked about. They were not just bystanders but played their bit in the making of the history and witnessing it with sense of achievement but silently. But they will enjoy the glory looking at it hindsight for sure.

will-a-unified-transport-ministry-be-a-reality-in-namo-2.0-

Will a unified transport ministry be a reality in NaMo 2.0?

By IndianMandarins 18 Sep 2019

The Modi govt has once again started gauging prospects of merging rail, roads, aviation and shipping into one unified transport ministry as practiced in countries like China, Japan and a few others. Reportedly, a panel of secretaries was constituted by the PM to recommend transformative ideas about transport and infrastructure sectors to provide integrated multi-modal mobility solutions. Cities like London and New York have a single body to govern public transport.

 

Cabinet Secretary has already had a meeting with the panel of secretaries which may make a presentation of the proposal to the PM soon. The NaMo administration had conceived the idea of an omnibus transport ministry in its first term only which appears to continue in NaMo 2.0 as well.

Modi, the great leveler: Some old tactics don’t work in NaMo regime

By IndianMandarins 16 Sep 2019

Just keep matching dots ever since NaMo administration took over the command over the system and you would find a pattern. Modi has been a great leveler.

 

For Modi dispensation, everyone is made to realise that they are equal be it a commoner or a cabinet minister. No one can force any decision whatsoever their past had been as important decisions will have to be approved by the PMO and there is no guarantee that senior minister’s wish is always honored.

 

In the cases of appointment of bureaucrats, a senior union minister was denied officers of his choice during NaMo 1.0 but a minister close to Nagpur establishment was also very politely communicated recently that he would have to work with the same officers he was wanting to be removed despite the minister going to the extent of threatening.

Another achievement of IWAI: PM to inaugurate second MMT on Ganga

By IndianMandarins 10 Sep 2019

PM Modi will dedicate to the nation India’s second riverine Multi Modal terminal built under Jal Marg Vikas Project at Sahibganj in Jharkhand on 12 September, 2019. The PM will also inaugurate state-of-the-art terminal through a two-way digital communication system in Ranchi. Built at a cost of Rs 290 crore in about two years the project was implemented by Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI). it will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways route.

 

PM himself had laid the foundation stone of Sahibganj MMT in April, 2017. This is the second of the three MMT being constructed on river Ganga under Jal Marg Vikas Project (JMVP).  Earlier, in November, 2018 the Prime Minister had inaugurated the MMT at Varanasi.

 

This will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways. It will play an important role in transportation of domestic coal from the local mines in Rajmahal area to various thermal power plants located along NW-1. Other than coal, stone chips, fertilisers, cement and sugar are other commodities expected to be transported through the terminal.  This will help creating direct employment of about 600 people and indirect employment of about 3000 people in the region.

Modi’s mission and Shah’s action earn brand equity

By IndianMandarins 07 Sep 2019

After the abrogation of Article 370 & 35A, J&K is returning to normalcy. Connectivity is retrieved and restrictions are lifted. The Govt has claimed that not a single casualty has taken place over a period of 30 days.

 

The flawless execution of ‘Mission Kashmir’ has apparently become the brand equity of Union Home Minister Amit Shah -- the most trusted lieutenant of the PM Modi. The government sorted out several tough tasks be it demonetisation, triple talaq, surgical strike and smashing the special status of Kashmir.

 

Amid oppositions from within and outside, Modi-Shah has not only nullified its attack but alienated Pakistan with its exhaustive home work before executing its plan. They did not allow the matter to get leaked to anyone at the home front.

 

There has been a general practice that all party meeting is convened before taking such big decisions but whenever the matter is discussed at all party meeting it is mostly recommended to Parliamentary Standing Committee and always remains in Limbo forever of which women reservation bill is a testimony.

 

The government played emotional card, divided opposition on the issue of Nationalism, put security arrangements well in place, Valley was cleansed from terrorists. But the government appeared resolute even if it had to evacuate Amarnath pilgrims and tourists in Kashmir facing their ire.

 

It is not that things remained hunky dory for the duo. The issue of demonetisation is still debatable, GDP has gone down to 5 per cent, cleanliness mission of Ganga proved to be a damp squib, unemployment still haunts the country but Modi-Shah duo take everything to a logical conclusion come what may.


The government neither succumbed to the pressure of political parties nor civil society on any of the issues as mentioned above. Moreover, they are rather preparing road map for J&K to ensure smooth elections in the state. BJP’s organizational structure is working day in and day out to ensure a win. De-radicalisation is another plan on which the government is very serious about in its K plan.
