Niti Ayog to replace Planning Commission. One joke to replace another joke.
What can this poor government do except operate by stunts ? It has realized it cannot do any real vikas. Manufacturing growth is stagnant, GDP growth has dropped from 5.7% to 5.3%. The youth who voted en masse for the great man who promised to solve all their problems have realized they have been taken for a ride. Far from millions of jobs being created ( as the slogan 'vikas ' seemed to promise ), there is going to be more unemployment as 1 crore new youth pour into rhe job market annually, but there are only 5 lac new jobs in the organized sector of the economy.
So the only thing it can do is shout slogans and do stunts---make in India, swatchata, ghar wapasi, good governance day, and now Niti Ayog.
Many years ago, a party in U.P. had promised to abolish sales tax if voted to power. It was voted to power, and promptly changed the name sales tax to trade tax, and said it had abolished sales tax.
