A fair assessment of NaMo Government by a US Think Tank

Here is a reproduction of an article from TOI website based on the report of Hudson Institute, a Washington based Think Tank. It also administers caution to the government, so that NDA government does not continue to sit on its laurels and squander a wonderful opportunity to change India:

QUOTE:

WASHINGTON: Observing that the Modi government which came to power last year on a plank of change has been bogged down by bureaucracy and politics, a top US think-tank has said "caution" and not enthusiasm is evident in every arena.

Washington-based Hudson Institute in a report 'Modi One Year On' said the BJP-led government was voted into power by a new generation of Indians.

The new Indian electorate is aspirational and demands instant gratification and immediate results, it said.

The report lays out how a government that came in on a plank of change and reform has been bogged down by bureaucracy and politics.

"Caution and not enthusiasm is evident in every arena, whether economy, defence, healthcare, trade and investment, energy, education and labour," the report said.

"Yet there are tremendous opportunities before the Modi government: there is still tremendous popular support for Mr (Narendra) Modi personally, the corporate sector is still hopeful of change, the global environment has been helpful and India's demographic dividend is in India's favour," it said, adding that Modi backers are also impatient for positive results.

"Markets run on sentiments and until now the upswing in Indian economic growth has been primarily because the markets remain hopeful of change for the better. Prime Minister Modi must act fast before this hopefulness dissipates," said the report.

The report argues that India's economy is growing but not because of government policies and actions. The pace of growth has increased because of global economic factors, such as lower oil prices and the fact that the market still 'hopes' that things will change.

"Some government actions, such as 'tax terrorism' -- imposition of retroactive taxes on multinational corporations -- and the lack of implementation of tax and labor reforms, have hurt India's economic outlook," the report said.

India in the defence industry faces numerous challenges, foremost amongst them being India lacks necessary technology and investment to be self-sufficient in the defence sector.

To modernise its armed forces, India will need to diversify its arms acquisitions and streamline licensing processes, it said.

Future of India's defence lies in being pragmatic about purchasing what it requires in order to build its military and yet boosting its domestic industry with investment and technology, the report said.

"Given the international interest in the performance of the Modi government and the expectations about India's economic potential being unleashed, it was important to methodically examine the facts," former Pakistan ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani, who is now part of the Hudson Institute, said.

THE REPORT HAS BEEN PREPARED WITH AMERICAN INTEREST. THEY HAVE BEEN EYING INDIA AS BIG MARKET FOR THEIR ARMS. THEY NEVER DO ANY CHARITY WORK. ALL ARMED CONFLITS, DONE UNDER THEIR LEADERSHIP ARE WITH COMMERCIAL INTEREST. THEY EITHER CLEAR THEIR STOCKS OF OBSOLETE ARMS OR USE THE OCCASIONS TO TEST THE NEW DEVELOPED ARMS IN THE REAL CONDITIONS. THEY GET PAID FOR THIS OUT OF THE FUNDS COLLECTED FROM ALLIES. INDIA SHOULD DEVELOP OUR OWN ARMS AND AMMUNITION WITH MORE STRESS IN THE WEAKER SECTORS. RUSSIAN SUPPORT IN THE FEILD IS VERY IMPORTANT. DRDO SHOULD WORK HARDER. WE CAN WORK WONDERS WITH OUR BRAIN POWER. LET US HAVE MORE GREAT SONS OF SOIL LIKE OUR DEAR LATE KLAM SAHIB. more  
The western agencies have their own agenda in saying what they say. We should not give any importance to it. more  
It is definite that the expectations of the people from the govt. have not been met with. There is no doubt people want results not bothered to know the obstacles one has to face. But don't you think we should still give some time to the new Government. One can say that one year was enough to do something solid but nothing has been done worth mentioning. Yes, people in power should do something which benefits the commeon man instantly.Do they have a magic wand? I don't think they have any. They also know they better act fast otherwise---. Lets hope for the best and something comes up very soon. more  
I think Modi's team is letting him down and handing brownie points scoring opportunities to Opposition parties particularly the Congress party. Why could they not settle OROP issue? Start and deal with problems as they arise. Take the Military brass into confidence. Lock up a team of babus from finance and defence ministry and represents of the retired personnel in a room till they come up with a solution. We have inherited the them and us policy from the British and are continuing with it. No one is happy with developments. We need administration and not legal or political debates. The government is wasting the mandate people gave them. more
