When Paid Media, Liberals & Commies are bought by opposition to defeat a successful leader Modi, it's time to sit back & see what Modi has done in this little time.Will this progress continue if we ignore him & let vultures come again? Pls read the thread below!👇
1. #Demonetisation
Without bothering that his popularity will decline & his Govt might fall, He took this bold step. We all had inconvenience but everyone knew it was for the betterment of India. Country united in ATM Queues but the Corrupt screamed from rooftops
2. #GST
We had been hearing about GST since years but it wasn't possible to bring every state, business, Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha agree on it! Jaitley & Modi made it possible. Businesses were down temporarily but now everyone is reaping benefits of 1 Country 1 Tax

RBI has come with an excellent paper on the benefits of #Demonetisation - with undeniable facts and data and not rhetoric that has been offered by newly minted economists or stale shayari from the Congress stable. Consider some facts in next few tweets.1/10
Currency in circulation (CIC): CIC was down by 8% Y-o-Y as against 17.2% rise in previous year. So as of 27th Oct 2017, CIC was around 91% of pre-demonetization levels and actually 81% if same growth rate had continued in absence of demonetization. 2/10
Currency in circulation as proportion of broad money (M3) fell to 12.3% on 13th Oct 2017 as compared to 14.4% on 11th Nov 2016. The conclusions in RBI paper are thus significant. 3/10

1/ This is voodoo economics. Lets start with high real estate prices being a problem. Are there not other ways of dealing with an asset price bubble here?Rraising Stamp Duty, a national register of real estate, gradually escalating property tax, are some measures...
2/ The trouble is that these steps call for better honest administration that is non-corruptible and fair. But that remains elusive in India. The fact is that while property prices may have come down, the venality has not. There's still a lot of under-the-table deals.
3/ with all the cash sloshing around Indian money has now become the largest source of deals for real estate in Dubai. So the rich guys have found a new place to park their wealth. Thank you for #DeMonetisation.

Let me show u how the CBI has been used as a puppet of the Modi govt in the #Ryan #PradyumnMurderCase only and only to divert the media from the debates of #DeMoDisaster . #thread :
1. The CBI has NO evidence that the 11th std boy went into the toilet before the murder of #Pradyumn. They base their case on the "fact" that the 11th grade boy saw the body & told the school staff about it . N
2. With no evidence to show the 11th grade boy was in the toilet before #Pradyumn came , the case by the CBI rests on the murder weapon. The CBI has still not determined where the boy got the weapon from ! N

This is a picture story/thread I compiled on #Demonetisation . My frustration from my own experience made me waste this much time. I was inspired by @jamewils @t_d_h_nair & countless others. I dedicate this 2 the author of this tragedy @PMOIndia wiping out 2% of USD2.264Trillion
We had certain rat problems in our home. So one of the self appointed Elders wisely thought of ways to handle the Rat issue which was his election Plank.
There were lot of ways to solve this issue.

1/ It was always clear to most non-bhakts that #demonetisation was a stupid (and I'm being polite here) move economically.
2/ Once you layered the human cost, the move was downright unconscionable. We are aware of the prominent folks who opposed it.
3/ They were very helpfully termed as black-marketers, cash hoarders, anti-national by the bhakt brigade.
