१५ ऑगस्टला काय बोलू ?

Submitted by आयडी गोठस्कर on 2 August, 2018 - 22:28

हा प्रश्न विचारला आहे भारताचे प्रधानमंत्री मा. नरेंद्र मोद्दी यांनी. १५ ऑगस्टला जे भाषण प्रधानमंत्री करतात त्यामधे नागरिकांचे मुद्दे यावेत यासाठी हा उपक्रम आहे. त्यासाठी एक विशेष अ‍ॅप आहे. हे डाऊनलोड करून त्यावरून देखील प्रधानसेवकांशी संपर्क साधता येतात. आपले मुद्दे पोहोचवण्यासाठी थोडा अवधी उरला आहे.

आपल्याला काय मुद्दे पोहोचवायचे आहेत याची इथे उजळणी करावी का ? त्यामुळे युनिक आणि निसटलेले मुद्दे पीएम पर्यंत पाठवता येतील. ( आंजा वरच्या चर्चांचा धांडोळा घेण्याची एक यंत्रणा आहेच. त्यामुळे इथले मुद्दे मुद्दामून नाही पोहोचवले तरी दखल घेतली जाण्याची दाट शक्यता आहे).

Robust foreign Policy
PM Modi announced his arrival on the global diplomatic stage when he invited leaders in the Indian subcontinent to be part of his swearing-in ceremony. The world took notice, and four years down he has single-handedly created a respected space in the world order for India and himself. No mean achievement for someone who was shunned by the global community till he became India’s Prime Minister.

The most significant achievement in India’s foreign policy has been building a closer strategic relationship with the United States. For a country that has largely been hesitant in demonstrating and asserting its strategic interests in keeping with its rising power status, the re-naming of the United States’ Pacific Command to Indo-Pacific Command, has been a significant development.

India’s ‘Look East’ policy got a boost with the country strengthening its relationship with Japan, Vietnam and Australia, and in bringing them closer to align with India’s strategic goals.

Another significant achievement of India’s assertive diplomacy is in isolating Pakistan in the global community and shaming it for its role as a state sponsor of terrorism.

The Modi government has strengthened its relationship with Bangladesh, and is working hard to stave off economic assertion by China in the Indian subcontinent and the Indian Ocean region.

The Goods and Service Tax (GST) introduced from July 2017 has been one of the most significant reforms of the Modi government. The implementing of GST has created a single common market in India by subsuming several different taxes into a single tax and applicable pan-India. The move has helped in removing the cascading impact of different taxes.

With the introduction of GST, states can expect their revenues to increase, especially those that do not manufacture goods and rely on supply from other states. In other words, the disadvantage of certain states over others stands negated. For a country the size of a continent, its impact on the economy will be transformational.

GST was first proposed in 2000 by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government but differences cropped up with several states on revenue sharing formula. Several attempts were made to implement GST by the UPA I and II governments but failed.

At present, GST is a four-tier tax slab system and there are plans at reducing the number of slabs as the system stabilizes.

As India pursues 7 percent plus growth year on year over the next few years, GST will play a major role in achieving that goal.

Social Welfare Schemes at scale
The Modi government has demonstrated its penchant for undertaking ambitious social welfare schemes and delivering them at scale under tight timelines. The speed of implementation of the popular Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) stands out for what the government can achieve if there is a commitment.

PMJDY is the world’s largest financial inclusion program aimed to bring the weaker and marginalized sections of society into the banking system, and enable them to receive financial benefits from the government directly into their bank accounts.

PMJDY ensures the traditional leakages and corruption in the system is completely eliminated, thus ensuring full benefit reaches the beneficiary. As on May 2018, 31.60 crore beneficiaries have been covered under the scheme. The total deposit collected as a result of their opening of savings account is Rs 81,203.59 crores. 23.80 crore have received RuPay Debit Cards and can now access ATMs.

Other countries are now studying the model to possibly implement similar projects.

– the UIDAI project, is a 12-Digit Unique Identification Number given to Indian residents, based on their biometric and demographic data. It is the world’s largest ID system implemented. Started under the UPA II regime, the Modi government has significantly advanced its implementation. The Aadhaar Card allows the holder to use it as a Proof of Address though it does serve as proof of citizenship. As on November 2017, 1.19 billion Aadhaar cards had been issued, covering 99 percent of the population.

The National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS)
is a major initiative of the Modi government launched this year? NHPS aims at offer healthcare cover up to Rs 5 lakh per family for serious illnesses. With a budget of Rs 10,000 crore, the scheme aims to cover 10 crore families or 50 crore people belonging to economically weaker sections of society.

Besides providing a high quality of health care services to the poorest, the scheme will also have a transformational effect on the healthcare infrastructure in the country.

Swaach Bharat Abhiyan
is yet another initiative unmatched anywhere in the world? The program is a movement against open defecation and helps people build toilets in joint participation with the government. As of April 2018, 46,36,128 individual toilets and 306,064 community and public toilets, have been constructed across the country.

- १५ लाख कधी देणार ?
- काळा पैसा कधी येणार ?
- नोतबंदीत किती काळा पैसा उघड झाला ...

असे बरेच मुद्दे आहेत.

मग या मुद्द्यांवरून कुठे जाळपोळ करायची, कुठे दंगे करायचे, कुठल्या बिल्डिंगा पाडायच्या, पुतळे फोडायचे?
फक्त हिंदू लोकांचेच नुकसान करा बरं का. मुसलमान लोकांंच्या केसाला जरी धक्का लागला तरी ते त्याहून जास्त धमाल करतील नि मग हिंदूंना शेपूट घालून गप्प बसावे लागेल.

ही आजची भारतीय लोकशाही.

लोकशाहीची कल्पना होती की आपले प्रतिनिधी लोकसभेत पाठवावेत, त्यांनी हे प्रश्न विचारावेत. त्या ऐवजी आता डायरेक्ट जालपोळ, दंगे, रस्ता बंद, बिल्डिंगा पाडा! धम्माल करत जगतात राव भारतातले लोक! खरे तर त्यांना हे असले लोकशाही वगैरे ऐवजी पूर्वीसारखे राजेच बरे. राजा बरा निघाला तर सगळे लोक सुखी, नाहीतर थोडेच सुखी. पण तो दंगे तरी करू देणार नाही!
