AMit Shah claimed that BJP has given India a prime minister who speaks but he failed to explain where he speaks and how he reacts on domestic problems and to what extent his high-octave diplomacy has seriously damaged India’s foreign policy.
Lack of clarity and absence of strategic planning are the hallmarks of his utterances and actions in foreign countries. Narendra Modi is often heard saying that he is a new prime minister but a PM is supposed to know the ins and outs of his profile within a span of one week. Moreover his reference to corruption in India while in foreign country lands looks absurd as Modi should shed his egoism of having won th general elections with a extraordinary mandate rather he should focus on how he has performed after winning the mandate.Sadly Modi government failed to create jobs that he lodly promised in every rally and is the need of the hour.
In Modi’s term as PM tere has been aggressive pursuit of neo liberal policies which are fact creating greater hardships for the people, sharpening of communal polarisation and increase in authorisation almost eroding all democratic norms and practices.
Modi who recently addressed US Congress spoke on issues ranging from climate change to terrorism, defence and security cooperation to trade and economic
relationship without pointing out the primary contribution of UPA government of making a Indo-US civil nuclear deal a success inspire of united opposition of BJP and left parties .
Moreover Modi floated various Ideas during his speech at US congress creating value for our societies while BJP is busy in demolishing the very democratic and secular structures in the country.
Than Modi said that his party is looking on long term benefits;but to the contrary Modi and BJP leaders are polarising the nation for achieving immediate results in every elections.
Modi quotation at US congress: Not just on building a bright future for our peoples, but in being a bridge to a more united, humane and prosperous world.
But the fact is he has snatched the very basic right of an Indian who is facing hardships even to earn two square meals and unemployed youth and debt ridden people are committing suicides unable to bear the expenses of a costly education.
Congress however cautioned Modi not to become a blind follower of United States.because so far wherever US intervenes there have been problems for the countries where it had meddled–Shah of Iran went in exile after following blindly uS policies of liberalism that ultimately gave way to Islamic Republic of Iran that afterwards even became a thorn in American eyes.
US always single mindedly pursuesits own interests unmindful of the interests of otherv countries to maintain its superpower status. It is this context that Khamenei has said that Iran cannot trust US and UK.
Modi who is always criticising the country’s opposition for creating hurdles in his path of governance ,should rather draw lessons from other countries like Libya, Iraq that have failed to come out of the mess created by US.
