Really i appreciate this government. first thing our Congress government made lot of mistakes, we need lot of time and money and administration power to resolve all those things, more over we need to improve our GDP. we need to provide employment to many young stars. This won't happen in one month or 1 year. minimum it takes 2 years of time to set all those things in proper structure. In this one month MODI government has taken lot of decisions on FDI and employment and they have given very good budget to our nation within this short span of time. more over they are concentrating more on manufacturing sector to develop our country and they really trying to put our country in 1st place in entire Asia region. Really this is we want. They have given 49% fdi in defense. By this we can understand what they are going to do in this 5 years. Of course they have increased railway fares. But we need to bare all those things. we are not looking for short term development, we are looking for long term development, so we need bare such decisions, then only we will become very powerful country in this world..

One Month of New Government

#2 Postby urvashi11 » Mon Jul 07, 2014 12:43 pm

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government completed its first month in office on Thursday. In the past one month, the government has been praised for measures like forming a SIT on black money and abolition of groups of ministers (GoMs) and empowered groups of ministers (EGoMs) but it has also been criticized for a steep hike in railway fare ahead of budget. Although it’s very early to give a verdict, but there are clear signals of a marked shift from the previous UPA regime in terms of style of functioning.
The first month saw decisions on the domestic front to change the official work culture and style of governance- the PMO becoming the centre of governance, the "group of ministers" mechanism abolished to quicken the decision- making and various austerity measures to control government expenditure. The government also took some steps to revive the sluggish economy: it has announced a single-window clearance system for capital-intensive steel, coal and power projects, a new urban renewal mission, a smoother labour compliance reporting system, and also articulated its commitment to a national employment policy. The fruits and vegetables were finally delisted from the draconian Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) act. Delisting fruits and vegetables from APMC will allow farmers to sell their produce in open market. This shall bring down prices and farmers will no longer be at the mercy of the middleman. Although the government had taken decisive decisions, it failed to contain inflation.
The sharp increase in railway fare by 14.2 per cent and rail freight charges by over 6 per cent before the budget also bought flak from all sides. Although, the decision taken by railway minister D.S. Sadananda Gowda, is a challenging one. The railways has been running on losses for past few years. It is estimated that for Indian Railways to break even on its passenger operations, it needs to increase fares by almost 50%, inclusive of fuel surcharge. A loss making railway will provide below-par services like deterioration in food quality, safety and will eventually not even have the resources to pay its’ bill. However, the government has taken the populist path of partially rolling back the fares, which is similar to actions of previous governments.
On the international front, Modi made a calculated move by inviting Pakistan Prime minister Nawaz Sharif and other heads of state of India’s South Asian neighbours and members of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) to his inaugural ceremony. He also made Bhutan the destination of his first foreign visit as prime minister where he emphasized on strengthening the bilateral relations between the two countries.
The government had its own share of controversies, whether it was the row over Smriti Irani's educational qualifications or the rape allegations on another minister Nihal Chand in 2011 case. Home Ministry circulars seeking to promote official language Hindi in the social media also sparked a controversy with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, two of BJP's allies and DMK opposing it strongly.
Although it’s very early to comment how the government will fare in near future, it will be interesting to see how it handles the stiff challenges in term of a weak monsoon, Iraq crisis that may spur oil prices and continuing public outcry in the wake of tough decisions to revive economy.
