I don’t know why people are coy about saying it aloud and proud. I don’t know why someone who has said it during a speech, not once but twice, quite clearly, should then attempt to retract and deny and do all this criss-crossing of legs: ‘I said it’, ‘I didn’t say it’, ‘I said it, but what I meant was’, ‘I half said it, but what I half meant was’, ‘I never actually said that, that’s not what I said’, ‘mischievous people are misrepresenting’ then on then forth.

Here, let me just say it for you: In India, we’ve an excessive amount of democracy and this government, from Day One, has been dedicated to the task of reducing this blight on our nation with the single-minded aim of eradicating it completely! Also: No government has done the maximum amount towards removing democracy, towards uprooting it completely, as this government has!

Previous governments may have tried, but they were ultimately lily-livered, they only half did, or part did then fell into the trap of trying to please the people! So, as Niti Aayog’s Amitabh Kant makes it clear, unlike previous governments this government is decided to push five companies to become Global Champions! Because we’d like them to be Global Champions without letting what the people of India want to urge within the way! For too long people’s needs have sabotaged India’s grand ambitions!

Clear chronology

High appointees of this regime can add: the main target shown by the ruling combination is an idea to all or any who work under them! From the start the chronology has been clear: use this too-much democracy to capture power, doesn’t matter if you’ve got only 31% of vote share for your party and 38.5% for your alliance; if that permits you to urge into the driver’s seat you’re allowed to drive the bus off the cliff. within the next four years you’re to pay no heed to the overwhelming majority of the population who didn’t vote for you (if you really believed in democracy you would); till the time subsequent elections come around, you maintain the facade of democracy while hollowing out its political institutions. While shouting about the evils of corruption you usher in the mother of corruption-encouraging legislation with electoral bonds; and since the checks and balances are crippled nobody can effectively challenge the law legally.

So, with ten times extra money than your rival parties, you’ll are available with a good bigger majority within the next elections. And albeit with all of your machinations you can’t manage quite 37.4% vote share for yourself and 45% for your larger syndicate, you’ll proceed to say that each one 1.3 billion Indians are behind you whenever you are doing something outrageous. within the meantime that pesky import from the West, that damned democracy, is degrading nicely and rapidly. even as money pulls in additional money, disaster attracts more disaster, delusion-fuelled self-destruction fuels more delusion resulting in deeper self-destruction — ek dhakka aur doh.

Strata of complicity

The thing is, the regime is buoyed by a creamy layer of self-serving hypocrites and delusional Trickle-Down addicts in various positions of power and wealth. Actually, you’ll say the rulers and their various Gauleiters are within the position they’re , doing what they’re , due to this thick strata of complicit, unquestioning upper and middle-class people. For them, the protests against the CAA-NRC were ‘purely obstructionist’, regardless of that massive discrimination against Muslims was being made into law.

For them, the JNU, Jamia and AMU students were ‘asking for trouble’ then deserved to possess thugs walking in under police auspices to beat up the scholars . For them, ‘some of the farmers’ demands have merit but how dare the farmers threaten to dam all roads to Delhi? gather their leaders!’ one among them even says, “Believe you me, I hate the Modi government for its specialise in Hindutva, which actually goes against the grain of Hindu philosophy, but I can’t fault them for trying in usher in some good change.”

What this last commentator of the WhatsApp world doesn’t understand is that there’s no ‘good change’ within the pipeline. Everything stems from the ‘focus on Hindutva’, the allergy to ‘too much democracy’, and therefore the one-point agenda of achieving a janatantra-mukt Bharat.
