India is becoming a country of one party!

The Economist in his column ‘Briefing’ has written a serious article about the ‘weakening’ of Indian democracy. The essence is that Narendra Modi is seen making India a country of one political party or whether such a threat has arisen. This article also reviewed the arrest of Arnab Goswami, a renowned journalist in connection with the abetment of suicide, to get bail from the Supreme Court and then to call it ‘victory for the people of India’ by Arnab himself.

Arnab was among the examples of a large number of undertrials and a minority of more people, with more than 550 detention petitions pending, and postponing the petition for straw for Parkinson’s disease, Stan, for 20 days. The finger has been raised on the Supreme hearing of the case.

Quoting Vice Dean Tarunabha Khaitan at Oxford University, it has been said that the country is slowly and slowly moving towards majoritarianism – “Jackal is sitting in the skin of the sheep.” The article mentions the deaths of two-thirds of the Muslims in the Delhi riots, the lack of action against BJP leaders who made provocative speeches, linking the Trump tour with the Left and rioting political opponents during the COVID-19 epidemic. Attempts have been made to weaken the RTI Act, the competition for military officers to speak for the BJP and even strengthen the hold on organizations like the Election Commission.

India is changing?

Salil Tripathi writes in the foreign policy that the Supreme Court intervened for the release of Arnab Goswami on the basis that if the constitutional court does not protect individual freedom, who will? On this basis, talk should also be done for dozens of human rights activists, academics, writers and journalists who have been in jail for months.

Tripathi writes that Arnab Goswami gets bail in a non-journalistic case but justice is not done to those who do journalism. He cites the example of Kappan and Ahan Penkar, one of whom was arrested while covering the case after the alleged rape and murder of a Dalit woman, while the other was arrested because BJP workers did not like his reporting. Was doing. The author also remembers the incident of Bhima Koregaon during which dozens of anti-government people have been arrested for the violence that took place.

Hope is ending in India!

Andy Mukherjee has written in Bloomberg that he is losing what he expected from India. The pain of the epidemic has caused great damage to the economy. Instead of the dream to defeat the China, now the situation seems to be happening that even india cannot compete the Bangladesh. The totalitarian way of fighting the corona virus has made the situation worse. Attempts were made to deal with this thinking at all levels – economic, political and social. The last quarter was unprecedented when the economy collapsed to its lowest level.

Although Beijing was not ready for political reform, it was moving towards economic reform. Economic reforms in India remained incomplete compared to China. When Manmohan Singh became Prime Minister in 2004, the world fell into recession in 2008. Despite getting another term, this economic reform remained incomplete due to corruption and Anna movement. People saw hope in Narendra Modi in 2014. Gujarat was an example of a model. The talk that started with the end of tax terror started to end with demonetisation. In the time of epidemic, this hope now seems to be really over.

America will see Indian democracy through Biden’s glasses

Asim Ali has written in the Telegraph that the discussion on the US President’s policy on human rights is about which of the two paths Biden chooses. One is their idealism and the other is pragmatism. In fact, Joe Biden has many options on which he can diplomatically advocate democracy without taking risks. Joe Biden advocated strengthening global democracy. He has also promised to call a global conference in this regard. He is saying that the world’s democratic countries need to come together to strengthen constitutional institutions.

India has seen the biggest decline in the Freedom Index among 25 major democratic countries of the world. On the other hand, Narendra Modi’s domestic image has been a very strong leader in the world. He has also called Donald Trump and Barack Obama by name and called them friends. At the same time, Narendra Modi has been the target of the leaders of the West. Modi government has been criticized on issues like Kashmir, NRC, Rohingya crisis. Modi will also test the Biden government for the first year. It is not necessary for Biden to present himself as an activist. They can implement a diversified foreign policy.

Will there be discontent among farmers even after the agitation?

Pratap Bhanu Mehta writes in the Indian Express that even though the central government can overcome the farmers’ movement on the strength of power, this crisis will remain in the long run. The credibility of both the agitator and the government is at stake with the movement. Still there is little hope of any good result. Farmers are feeling that their political identity has reduced and economic complications have increased. This question is also interesting that how much has the grip of the farmer leaders on the movement.

There is also a lack of consensus within Punjab in the absence of dialogue. The Shiromani Akali Dal does not seem to get any credit. The future of the Aam Aadmi Party is uncertain. The point of political void in Punjab seems correct. The BJP, which has a hold in urban areas, feels that it will be able to keep its vote bank with them. The farmer movement will not have much impact on the BJP in Punjab, it seems
