Its the Badla Time BJP Boys
Put reforms on fast track: India needs to be shot with steroids
The time for sloganeering is over.
Rocketing into the very centre of the political lexicon are two words – economic reforms.
Unpalatable for many, but direly needed for the nation to get a move on.
The good news for the new government is that it enjoys a handsome majority in the Lok Sabha but is hobbled due to paltry numbers in the Rajya Sabha
In the 19th century, Manifest Destiny was the widely held belief in the US that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent.
India needs to be shot with steroids to carve its place at the world’s high table.
It can do that only if it shows the stomach for painful reform.
The proof of concept is here and now. The Winter Session of Parliament starting next week has much to look forward to.
That is if it manages to transact business and the Opposition doesn’t end up bushwhacking the ruling party’s agenda.
And believe me the likelihood of disruptions are very high.
Such is the nature of Indian polity now – manufactured anger to stymie and stall – create a din and drown out everything.
