India: NCP publishes 2022 report card of unfulfilled promises of centre

The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) created a report card detailing "unfulfilled promises" made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government. The report card emphasised the Modi government's successes and shortcomings on a number of fronts, including the economy, foreign policy, racial harmony, and inflation.

Mahesh Tapase, the chief spokesperson for the NCP, stated that it was time for the country to review the promises made by the BJP government and how they had not been kept, particularly the promise of a $5 trillion economy.

According to Tapase, neither the farmers' income nor the PM's stated 100 percent irrigation aim have been met, and the country's GDP is currently at 6.5 percent rather than the expected 10 percent by 2022. Tapase enquired, "What about the declaration that "homes for everyone in 2022"? What about the claims that all people will be digitally literate, there will be electricity available 24 hours a day, all village panchayats will have 100% broadband connectivity, and other things?"

He claimed that while the BJP government had written off bank loans totaling Rs 10 lakh crore from large borrowers or con artists, this benefit had not been extended to poor farmers and small business owners, and SME programmes for non-collateral credit have remained on paper because banks won't consider them.

In contrast to the rupee's depreciation and extension beyond Rs 82 against the US dollar, according to Tapase, the central government's borrowings over the eight years of BJP control had reached Rs 80 lakh crore. Tapase enquired, "Nearly 2,000 Indian individuals left their country and surrendered their citizenship in 2022 alone.

Does the BJP government have a plan for development, debt repayment, and other necessary policies, or can we only anticipate new "jumlas" in 2023?" A leader of the NCP stated that the end of the year should serve as a reminder to the populace of how the Modi government has abjectly failed to execute on all fronts and continues to just be interested in "event management" at the expense of the taxpayers.

Following his address to the nation on the 76th Independence Day, PM Modi was criticised by the Indian Congress, who claimed that he had let the people down by failing to mention the promises he had made during the previous eight years and by failing to provide an accounting of his administration.

The Prime Minister has made promises for the past eight years and is now suffering from his own words. He also sounds very worn out at this point.

His lack of enthusiasm and emotion makes him sound drained, and he is currently troubled by his own comments regarding commitments he has made.
