    ...The latest figures released by the Reserve Bank of India clearly show that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic and bold decision — demonetisation — was in the national interest and in the interest of the common man. The decision, which was aimed at checking black money and strengthening our economy, has already started bearing fruit. Unfortunately, Opposition parties have conveniently ignored these positive outcomes and have criticised the move which is being seen as an economic revolution the world over. Demonetisation was painted as a problem for the common man and an immature decision by the government. A former finance minister was crying foul over the move when, at the same time, his son was appearing before the CBI in a fraud case. RBI figures show that lakhs of fraud transactions are already under scrutiny. Over three lakh shell companies have been unearthed and 2.1 lakh companies have been deregistered due to irregularities. ...

    ...The BJP used to be referred to as the party that engaged only in “baithak”, “bhojan” and “vishram”. Amit Shah changed this mindset. In the last three years, the BJP has been on a remarkable journey. While the party romped home in the Lok Sabha polls in 2014 with an unprecedented mandate, particularly in the tough electoral arena of Uttar Pradesh, it now has governments in 10 states out of the 16 that went to the polls since Amit Shah took over the reins of the party. At the three year mark of his party presidentship, and as he steps into the House of Elders, his greatest achievement is in ensuring that the BJP’s grassroots leaders occupy the top three posts — president, vice president and prime minister. When Shah was asked to lead the party, many had questioned his political experience and declared him a novice having no connect with Delhi politics. What his critics forgot was the way in which he had transformed the party in UP which resulted in the BJP emerging as the unchallenged victor in 2014. This success was repeated in 2017. ...

    ...PM Narendra Modi’s speech to mark the roll-out of the GST was no exception. At midnight on July 1, when India saw the birth of an economic revolution, PM Modi was the statesman par excellence. Seated between President Pranab Mukherjee and Vice-President Hamid Ansari (both elected when the UPA held office and who had close links with the Congress before that) as well as H.D. Deve Gowda (his becoming PM in 1996 prevented the BJP from forming the government at the Centre), Modi listed how the GST will usher in a new economic order that will benefit every Indian. Minutes after he spoke, there were comparisons with speeches by other prime ministers. But the comparison with Jawaharlal Nehru’s speech on August15, 1947 was the most obvious. How did the two prime ministers compare in their addresses at the temple of democracy at midnight, 70 years apart? The central premise of Nehru’s speech — tryst with destiny — differs greatly from Modi’s central idea — a pledge of determination. ...

    ...Three years ago, under the leadership of Narendra Modi, the BJP was given the responsibility of increasing the respect of the country, and working for its all-round development. This mandate wasn’t just for changing the prime minister or government, it was for changing the country. This has been visible in the past three years. PM Modi has touched the minds of 125 crore Indians. He has injected new hope and energy into a broken morale, scattered systems and altered old mindsets that India was grappling with. Through his addresses and campaigns, Modi has brought the common man closer to his social responsibilities. The fact that Modi talks about the challenges of daily life in his speeches makes him the only hope for a solution to the common man’s problems. Has any PM ever raised the issue of Clean India from the ramparts of Red Fort? ...

    ...Virender Singh Negi Over the last 15 years, the electoral history of Uttarakhand provides testimony to the fact that the state’s people never made any one party victorious by blindly trusting it. It was only in the first assembly elections, in 2002, that one political party, the Congress, got a majority — 36 seats, only one seat more than the number needed in the 70-member assembly. Otherwise, in 2007 and 2012, the Congress and BJP got almost equal seats — ultimately, the party that managed to lure independents and smaller groups came to power. Perhaps this is why proper development evaded Uttarakhand, because no government was stable enough to focus on work. Political pundits were predicting the same fate this time too. Till last year, it was being said that Harish Rawat would win the next election, so much so that even until the last phase of these polls, no one was able to see that there was not just a “wave” in Uttarakhand, but a storm. ...

    ...Did anyone even dream of this scenario? These once-in-a-generation results in the just concluded assembly elections for five states, and more specifically, UP, have established what can be described as a new normal in Indian politics. That new normal is this: The BJP under the historic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the organisational master class of Amit Shah has established itself as the pre-eminent political party of India — the party that caters to the aspirations of every section of Indians. While each state election is of equal importance, the results in UP have a special importance, if for no other reason than the sheer legislative numbers the state brings to the national polity — 80 seats in the Lok Sabha, 31 seats in the Rajya Sabha and an important say in determining the presidential elections. But what is it that the BJP did in UP that has coloured the state so completely saffron? After all, remember that even at the peak of the Ram Mandir movement, the state did not vote this decisively and with this consistency for the BJP. ...

    ...It has been a month since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the cancellation of legal tender to Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. Since then, a lot of water has flown in the Ganga, and a lot of notes too! India has also seen an exponential rise in the number of economists since November 8. Our opposition today seems to have more economists in their fold than the total number of their MPs in Parliament. After the initial days inertia, the opposition has been very active in coming up with the parameters for the success of the currency ban. Unfortunately for them, their allegations, criticism and propaganda are becoming blunt quickly. While they are clearly aware of their lack of goal scoring abilities, the opposition has been pretty creative with creating new goal posts every passing day to try and portray this step as a failure. The opposition’s allegations against the government have ranged from hollow to humorous. ...
