How India has retrograted under Modi’s rule

Published

on

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has set a record of not addressing a single press conference during his three and a half years tenure was seen giving interviews to channels before his departure to Davos and primarily because of the eight Assembly elections that are scheduled for this year.

But Modi was asked comfortable questions and no controversial matters were raised for which people seek answers.

Modi said he should not be judged merely on demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax. This shows his acceptance that he has been a failure in observing that his decisions will give a boost to Indian economy.

The type of questions that were asked shows that the mainstream media is completely supporting Modi. PM Modi must answer the 360 degree transformation of India and the crumbling of democratic institutions such as media, Parliament and the latest victim Judiciary under his rule.

The country has been transformed from an integrated nation to a divided society on the basis of caste and religion (going back to medieval period). Modi should be asked questions like why the community of cow vigilantes have suddenly cropped up under his rule and there have been many incidents of Dalits, Muslim men beaten up on suspicion for possessing beef. These Gau rakshaks groups have never been charged or arrested rather the vigilantes have been acting with impunity. The cow protection groups are linked to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Modi will give a go ahead to each and every move of RSS whether it divides the society or bring cracks in the nation.

There have been innumberable instances when BJP ministers were seen giving controversial or hate speeches.

Dalits are being lynched countrywide and when the elections loom, Modi and BJP leaders start talking praising BR Ambedkar. Modi should be asked about the use of polarisation during elections, the worsening situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the North East.

Domestically, India is suffering with high degree of polarisation, division, lawlessness, crime against women,increase in joblessness has increased the graph of crime, high inflation, deepening of poverty.

Modi’s financial reforms have drastically affected the country’s growth as small traders have been virtually wiped out,industries have been shut and agriculture is in dire straits.

Modi is completely focusing on FDI for economic growth which is again a faulty decision as the FDI involves return of interest. The foreign companies are not in favour of investment or forging any partnership under “Make in India program citing poor quality and missing the deadlines.

Besides rampant joblessness, Modi’s foreign policy has failed miserably in foreign policy as countries in India’s neighborhood have knit close ties with China, thus causing grave concerns for New Delhi.

Modi has attained a mastery in diverting from the main issues and misguiding the people of the country. Modi warned political parties to refrain from the Supreme Court crisis but eventually government was seen meddling in judiciary.

Earlier,the government had tried to influence the appointment and transfer of judges through the National Judicial Appointment Commission (NJAC) but a five-member constitution bench of the Supreme Court struck down the NJAC by a majority of 4:1 in 2015.

Therfore ,there is face off between the judiciary and the government. Finance minister Arun Jaitley had stated in the Rajya Sabha on May 11, 2016: “The manner in which encroachment of legislative and executive authority by India’s judiciary is taking place, probably financial power and budget making is the last power that you have left.”

PM Modi remained silent in all the issues and he is even tight-lipped on the corruption issues that were raised against BJP President AMit Shah’s son. Twenty Aam Aadmi Party legislators from the Delhi assembly were disqualified by President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday, January 21, following the Election Commission’s recommendation in the office of profit case.

The Aam Aadmi Party has described President Kovind’s decision as ‘unconstitutional’ and ‘dangerous for democracy’.

The Congress sought answer from Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he will dismiss senior cabinet ministers like Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu and two junior ministers Jayant Sinha of Civil Aviation Ministry and MJ Akbar of External Affairs Ministry for allegedly holding the posts of directors in India Foundation, a think-tank run by NSA Ajit Doval’s son Shaurya Doval.

Last but not the least, Prime Minister who poses to be a clean man, does not shy away to tarnish the image of India’s previous prime ministers. Just to win the elections, the BJP government can go to such low that Modi accused former PM Manmohan Singh of conspiring with former Pakistani foreign minister to wipe out BJP in Gujarat.

Only 7% plan on going out to movie theatres in the next 60 days

Results of July, August and October survey by LocalCircles indicate that people continue to stay reluctant in going to theatres and multiplexes due to the Covid-19 scare.

Even though movie theatres are now open, only 7 per cent people are willing to go to watch a film there in the next 60 days, as per a survey.

Results of July, August and October survey by LocalCircles indicate that people continue to stay reluctant in going to theatres and multiplexes due to the Covid-19 scare.

Cinema halls across the states were allowed to reopen after seven months of the ongoing pandemic induced by the novel coronavirus.

Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka are some of the states where theatres and multiplexes have started to function. Cinema halls remain closed in states like Maharashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Chhattisgarh and many northeastern states.

LocalCircles conducted a survey to know if citizens if plan on visiting movie theatres in the next 2 months. The survey received 8,274 responses from across the country.

In the survey, citizens were asked, “now that the multiplexes and theatres are open in many states and the remaining states will also open them soon, will they be going to watch a movie in the next 60 days?”

However, only 4 per cent said they would go to watch if any new releases come and 3 per cent said they will go regardless of new or old movie. 74 per cent said they will not go while 2 per cent were unsure and 17 per cent said they don’t watch movies in theatre.

LocalCircles had conducted similar surveys during past few months to know how people plan to go out to watch movies when the theatres and multiplexes reopen. In the July survey, 72 per cent consumers had said that they will not go to theatres or multiplexes when they open, keeping the Covid-19 scenario in mind.

This number increased to 77 per cent in August and stands at 74 per cent in October.

Cinema halls claim to have taken various measures to ensure safety, such as sanitisation of their premises and other Covid-19 safety protocols. Among others, some of them have started the movie shows with 50 per cent of the total occupancy, staggered show timings, social distancing, thermal screening, adequate protection gear for the staff, etc.

But all said and done, it looks like people continue to be reluctant in going to a theatre or multiplex in the next 60 days, the survey said.

States that are considering opening multiplexes and cinema halls in the coming weeks may want to consider this consumer feedback and accordingly make their decision.

2020 lockdowns to drive new forms of automation: Report

Document extraction, robotic process automation (RPA) from anywhere, drones and various employee robots will proliferate.

The ‘great lockdown of 2020 will make the drive for automation in 2021 both inevitable and irreversible and remote work, new digital muscles and pandemic constraints will create millions of pragmatic automations, according to a new report.

Document extraction, robotic process automation (RPA) from anywhere, drones and various employee robots will proliferate.

“In 2021, up to 30 per cent of organisations will ramp up their focus on quality by better planning and testing automation before deploying it to production or exposing it to employees,” said the Forrester report on automation.

Three times as many information workers will work from home all or most of the time, while many companies will institute hybrid models in which workers come to the office less often.

“As a result of the pandemic, new forms of automation will support one in four remote workers either directly or indirectly by 2022”.

Direct support in the form of giving a bot to individual workers to support their daily journey will be rare.

However, indirect support will blossom, as intelligent automation handles employee benefits questions and supports document, customer service, and line-of-business tasks that are often invisible to the home worker, the findings showed.

Recent rapid growth in the consumer drones industry has sparked momentum in the commercial drone market.

While social distancing is a factor in drone usage, two forces will accelerate adoption in 2021.

“First, governments are crafting better regulations to facilitate drone adoption and commercialization, with Amazon Prime Air gaining FAA approval for drone deliveries and India driving drone pilot training with new policies,” according to the report.

Second, the rapid evolution of computer vision and 5G will enable real-time drone intelligence over ultra-reliable, low-latency communications.

Like machine learning, RPA will become an embedded feature of many platforms by the end of 2021.

“But rushed and haphazard automation exposes systems and the business to serious risk, so the lack of focus on automation quality is alarming, the report warned.

It can lead to monumental failures that not only damage a company’s reputation and customer trust but also limit broader public trust in automation (specifically AI) as a result of media scrutiny, it added.
