In a hard-hitting piece on NitiCentral.com, Kanchan Gupta responds to a hatchet job that someone called Lyla Bavadam did for Frontline, a sister publication of the misnamed “The Hindu” newspaper.
Kanchan notes that the world recognizes the ‘Gujarat Story’
. . . as one of remarkable economic achievement coupled with social development over the past decade. Hard-nosed investors and cynical industrialists acknowledge the rapid turnaround witnessed by this State on account of radical policy initiatives and their implementation by the Modi Government. Yesterday’s global economic power houses fallen upon bad times today are making a beeline for Gujarat to try and hitch their fortunes to those of this State in the hope that it would lead to a miraculous recovery for them.
All this and more is there for all to see but our blinkered Left-liberal media, controlled by an overweening commentariat dependent on crumbs from the high table of a status quoist and thoroughly corrupt New Delhi Establishment, will just not take note of facts as they exist. Instead, newspapers, journals and news channels continue to peddle fiction that is of a piece with their jaundiced perception of reality. It is a command performance – the morally bankrupt Pied Piper of New Delhi leads; the intellectually bankrupt intelligentsia which dominates the Left-liberal media follows.
Kanchan’s piece is an elegant response to a poorly written, illogically argued, blatantly partisan piece of trash. Not being a respected journalist like Kanchan Gupta, I am unconstrained by niceties and have the freedom to baldly state that Lyla Bavadam is a brain-dead retard. Evidence: her piece titled “Mirage of Development.”
Let me take just one out of numerous examples of idiocy. At one point she displays a table that lists states ordered with decreasing child mortality. Gujarat appears at the bottom of that short list. She’s so stupid as to not understand that the lower in that list that a state is, the better it is. She’s an innumerate.
The hatred for Modi has reached pathological proportions among the Congress chaprasis and they are clearly deranged. I think it is a good development because their insanity reveals their impotence.
There’s hope for India.
