Do not use disagreeable language

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
After the death of Jayalalitha the party appears to have chosen Shashikala as their leader. It is their business whom they appoint as their leader. Having been elected leader of the legislature party the governor has no business to delay her swearing in as Chief Minister. The fact that the governor is a BJP appointee and holds office of Governor of Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, he is acting against the constitution by absenting himself from Chennai and deliberately delaying the ...

Government Talks Big & Acts Small

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
The union budget was announced yesterday. Let us analyze it. A strange phenomenon is occurring in this country. Normally the government in power or the Prime Minister’s policy understanding and vision is very stable, but there is instability in the government, because of the coalition partners not thinking likewise. The strange thing just now is that there is a total stability in the number of MPs – 282 of the ruling party itself and allies. But there is total instability ...

Too early to judge Donald Trump

Every week the political discourse is becoming poorer and poorer. Now they are saying Sharad Powar has got Padma Vibhushan because the BJP wants him to become soft that in case of Shiv Sena withdrawing support in Maharashtra NCP could help the BJP to remain in power. It is a saddest comment anybody can hear. Sharad Pawar has a long political record, Padma Vibhushan he deserves on merit, not because he needs to be placated to support the BJP. But ...

The UP elections have been announced with other four states. Political activities have warmed up and by 11 March the results will come as to which way the wind is blowing. We will analyze that later. First, the question is the demonetization problem has not settle down as yet. To begin with, there was not enough currency in the banks and to change the old notes into new. Then on some calculation the Prime Minister and the government announced that ...

Public Sector Should Generate More Employment

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
There is not much political activities as much as the high decibel of noises on various matters, some relevant and some irrelevant. The Finance Minister has been saying that the GST bill may go through this monsoon session, so far so good. There are two problems in it. One, the Indian GST as envisaged keeps petrol and alcohol, which means it’s only 60 percent or what it should it be. In my opinion as bad GST is worse than no ...

An Objective view on Two Years of Modi Government

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
Two years have passed since this government came to power. They are celebrating it on a grand scale as would be expected, but let us take an objective view. An objective view would suggest that as far as administration is concerned, it is average, five on ten. The problem with this government is that they had raised the expectations so high during the election process that people who supported them and put them in to power are a disappointed lot, ...

Elections results in five states : Some hold their forts, other succumb to anti-incumbency

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
The election results of five states are out today. The results are as per expected lines. In Kerala they always alternate between LDF and UDF there are no surprises. In Tamil Nadu they normally alternate between DMK and AIADMK, but this time AIADMK has been re-elected which is a departure from the past practice. Credit must go to Jayalalitha that she still commands the confidence of the people despite controversies and court cases, which she always beleaguered with. In Bengal people ...

Parliament is in session for the last lap of the budget session, and the finance bill is likely to be passed after which parliament will be adjourned. The effort of the Finance Minister is to get two more bills passed: Bankruptcy Bill and the GST bill for which cooperation of the congress will be required. Yesterday there was a debate on the Agusta Westland helicopter purchase irregularities. The then Finance Minister A.K. Antony has given a very thorough reply putting ...

NPA: Govt Needs to Relook the Whole Situation

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
Expectations were raised that the second part of the budget session will be productive. The Finance Minister said that he is bringing the Bankruptcy Law and he will also try to get the GST bill passed. However, political developments always create a new situation and it has happened again. Unless the Congress cooperates or unless of course they can muster up all the other parties and carry on without Congress, Rajya Sabha will be difficult a house for the BJP ...

Morality cannot be legislated

 Posted by Kamal Morarka under Blog
The Uttarakhand High Court is hearing the matter relating to confidence vote which was to be held in the assembly but President’s Rule was clamped one day before a floor test. There are two points in this. One is a sequence of events which is political in nature, and the court cannot do much. It is for the political executives of the different parties to set healthy norms. Unfortunately, the Anti-Defection Act, like many such acts, has not served the ...
