shadow finance minister, whether he would scrap some of the flagship welfare programmes of the UPA Jaitley smiled and said he wouldn’t oblige by answering such a question just two months before the general elections He however did say that the BJP would probably redesign MNREGA in such a way that it is linked to some key asset creation across India such as building of toilets in villages At present MNREGA is open ended and in some states creative district collectors and Panchayats are using the funds for afforestation and to revive village water bodies etc The faces of the competing economic visions – Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi PTI The point one is trying to make is in India one has never seen a social welfare scheme being scrapped or withdrawn by any new political formation which comes to power Whether it is a Congress or BJP led government social welfare schemes once launched continue in one form or the other The nomenclature may change What does this tell us about the ideology of political parties in India Their natural instinct is to be socialist in orientation This instinct has particularly sharpened after coalition politics got entrenched since 1996 Some of the truly welfarist ideas such as highly subsidized food grains for the poor came from regional political leaders such as NTR and Karunanidhi The Centre adopted these schemes later Subsequently regional parties have got even more creative with Jayalalithaa offering mixers/grinders pressure cookers TV sets to the aspirational lower middle classes Akhilesh Yadav offered lap tops to students Nitish Kumar gave cycles to girl students as a symbol of empowerment There is an emerging lower middle class about 600 million people above the official poverty line which aspires to basic health care low cost housing education and social security No political party can escape addressing the needs of this section which is politically asserting itself They have clearly expressed their anger and frustration through the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi and possibly in other states For instance all mainstream political formations whether NDA or UPA have so far failed to create a policy framework for low cost housing You don’t have to be a socialist to understand thisfundamental need of some 600 million people Similarly they need basic healthcare and social security Perhaps recognizing the past failure in the delivery of various services by the State apparatus(which AAP exploits to the hilt) the Congress has crafted a manifesto which promises to bring rights based entitlement schemes While releasing the manifesto Prime Minister Manmohan Singh admitted in no uncertain terms that growth alone has not provided the trickle down effect Manmohan did believe in 1992 as finance minister that growth would create adequate trickle down effect The discourse has now changed The BJP too will not be able to escape the pressure of being welfarist in its orientation if it wants to sustain itself in power The India Shining campaign in 2004 election was an object lesson for the BJP Therefore on the ground the BJP governments in the states such as Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh follow competitive socialism Chattisgarh government says it is doing even better than the central food security legislation as it covers 90 % of population which gets highly subsidized food grains It has added other items such as salt and edible oil too The Congress manifesto also promises to add pulses to the food security basket Modi has written to Prime Minsiter Manmohan Singh that the food quota per household must be increased under the Act So given the spirit of the times all political parties whether national or regional will end up practicing some form of socialism or the other The BJP is not likely to be any different One has heard this lament for a long time that India does not have a truly right wing liberal political formation somewhat like the Republicans in the US or the Conservatives of Britain The 600 million lower middle classes aspiring to enter the middle class want both capitalist development and simultaneous welfarism It is not one or the other This message is becoming increasingly clear By: Reuters | Updated: October 13 2017 10:39 pm Pochettino said on Friday that Guardiola struggles to “be a gentleman” after a victory (Source: File) Top News Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is unimpressed by Pep Guardiola’s suggestion that Spurs are over-reliant on Harry Kane saying he was never disrespectful to the Manchester City manager by calling Barcelona a “Lionel Messi team” when he was in Spain Guardiola referred to Tottenham as the “Harry Kane team” when assessing City’s title rivals in the wake of his side’s victory over Chelsea before

Doordarshan invention which delighted the powers that be there — so what if some of us thought it was an irritating fly that ought to be swatted off the grandest show on Rajpath But why pick on such small fleeting issues on January 26 ‘Twas the day to be jolly and jolly forgiving To overlook nay enjoy the poetic heights Doordarshan anchors scaled in their descriptions including the “quietude of our souls”; to admire their ability to read the PM’s mind while he signed the ceremonial book at India Gate: “He is penning his thoughts his gratitude… this is a poignant time for the PM… as he expresses his heartfelt feelings…” To praise their saccharine sweet patriotism — “this for those who died but continue to live in our hearts forever” To accept their exaggerations for what they are exaggerations — “It’s cold out there but (nobody cares)… they are all smiles… they can’t wait for the parade to begin…” At the sight of the PM “they are filled with enthusiasm and zeal” To accept their description of the French regiment “marching smartly” when they appeared to be slouching towards Paris as an example of India’s “atithi devo bhava” For once ignore “Breaking News” that announced “PM about to alight any moment now” Or the ABP anchor who referred to “Champs Elesees” and “Sacosy” Watch in wonder the unusual sponsors who wanted to identify with the parade on the day India became
