Helping Transform India’s Future – Part 11

February 1st, 2011 · 3 Comments

The last few months have been a disappointing chapter in India’s history. Just when we should have been powering ahead on the development front, we have stumbled. Corruption scandals have shown how, besides the politicians being venal, many of our institutions too have been compromised. The biggest disappointment has been that the person with the greatest power to act (our Prime Minister) has been transfixed as if in a game of “Statue, Statue.”

We cannot expect those who are part of the system to bring about any change. They are the biggest beneficiaries. India is, after all, still under “British Raj 2.0” – the very same systems set up to extract and exploit India pre-1947 continue to be in place, and serve the masters very well.

What we need in India is a revolution via the ballot-box that achieves multiple objectives: elect a government that makes implementation of pro-development policies as its objective, create a centre-right movement in India, and get 50 good people in Parliament.

How can we, the people, make this happen?

Continued tomorrow.

    What we need is a change in guard on our PM front. If PM is going to act on Madam’s behalf….he might as well get replaced by Madam

    Important ministries are in shatters. Railways is on the verge of bankruptcy. The cost of operating is close to 94% for every Rupee invested and this is only harming us. Telecom ministry suffered the biggest scandal in many decades….Food inflation is on a all time high.

    Even if the congress ministry might get a tick in the box for its own performance, its dependency on its allies has set the nation stumbling in the roadblock to development….

    The PM needs to be held accountable for his allies and not the other way round….

    Great idea of transforming india…

    but can i humbly request you” billionaire intellegent people… “to list fifteen good things in 6yrs of bjp rule… fifteen things that bjp did different from previous congress government policies and just 5legislations that have helped India to tranform (like the RTI brought byUPA 1)

    it will help “middle india “to know the facts and make a choice , rather then thinking to tranforming india sitting in south mumbai.

    “sitting in South Mumbai …” is a canard.
    In fact its the intellectuals who can start this movement. Provide thought leadership and make people understand the need of a center right (small government) option. This can be done sitting anywhere.
