Here we go again. Now that India’s 2019 general elections are just a few months away, Mr Modi wants you to help him “transform India.”
Here’s an opportunity for India’s best brains to work for PM Modi’s campaign in 2019.
Take a sabbatical from your current job and work with Nation with NaMo till May 2019.
Dedicate your 8 months to transform India in the next 5 years.
“… work with Nation with NaMo …” Seriously? Couldn’t find a decent copy editor even?
It’s déjà vu all over again, as the great sage Yogi Berra said.
Dedicate your time to transform India? Been there, done that. I even wrote a book titled “Transforming India“. (The black and yellow of the book cover goes well with the flyer above, does it not?)
In any case, you don’t need “India’s best brains” to transform India. What you need is the will to bring about the needed change. Give Indians economic freedom. Stop increasing taxes to feed a bloated, interfering bureaucracy. Free the education system from government control. Reform labor laws. Stop caste and religion-based discrimination among citizens. Get the government out of business.
Shri Modi did talk the good talk but unfortunately did not walk that talk. Going by what he did in the past four years, it is unlikely that he’d do anything much in the next five years either. I am afraid that it will just be more of the three-Ts: “Talk, travel and tamasha“.
