In my piece in forthcoming @frontline_india I focus on NaMo Govt's wrecking of the economy and livelihoods in the name of fighhting #Covid . Also on how it mounts an onslought on every democratic right under cover of lockdown. In this context what does #AatmanirbharBharat mean?
Aatmanirbhar Bharat in Modi's imagination means - India, fend for yourself. The English translation - self-reliance - is not an accurate one. Historically, self-reliance was meant and used for the country - that is India being self-reliant.
Of course, to the Swadeshi-mouthing Sanghi this may appear attractive, but it comes with its own bundle of cotrdictions. In particular, there is the obviously Nehruvian connotation, to which the Sangh is seriously allergic to. There is also the legacy issue from the freedom movt.

So this tweet generated quite an interesting discussion on my mentions earlier today.
Even though the circumstances regarding the WHO meet have changed by now, yet I will take some time to take this chain of thoughts forward.
Here goes ..
Let me share my thoughts on whether it is time for India to change her policy on Taiwan.
Firstly, why the current policy?
Well, this is due to the Paranoid Republic of China's insistence on the world recognizing Taiwan as their province, basically the 'One China Policy'
Never mind that the Taiwanese have been administering themselves for the past 71 years in a democratic republic that the Communist overlords of China can only find threatening to their very survival!
After all, how can a 'renegade' province of the Middle Kingdom be democratic!

Here is a thread on the 5th Day's Play. As it begins banish all thought of a stimulus via a fiscal deficit or public spending. Remember what Amit Shah said: ”Reform, Transform and Perform." #Aatmanirbhar means “India, fend for yourself.”
Funda about land, labour, liquidity and law to be leveraged for #AatmanirbharBharat repeated. Only a Sangh could have conjured such a bizarre package of these these four elements. "Pulses were also given” asserts the FinMin. That's a lie. In most places they have been given 1 kg
FinMin says workers in camps were given food. Pray, for how many workers? Does that match your allocation? Watching FinMin is like watching a Dean Elgar innings. After 5 days of batting she seems to be ready to settle down by Tea time!

My tweets on the Fourth Day’s play of the historic #Covid Test in which India is captained by the FinMin vice captain - no pun here). Sopmebasics: In chaste Sanghi lingo #AatmNirbhar means NO fiscal deficit. That's what the FinMin has been saying for 3 days.Why don't we get it?
Today the FinMin is taking a shot at the structure of the tottering Indian economy, in the name of "Structural Reforms". This is pure #AatmNirbhar territory.
The extreme focus on #AatmanirbharBharat on 4th day's play gives me the creeps that we are well and truly into the slog overs.

Y'day, FM announced measures under #AatmanirbharBharat mission. I call considering it a stimulus, A tale of travesty, because of the following. (1/n)
1. FM lowered TDS rates by 25% stating it as INR 50000 crore liquidity support. But the tax liability & tax rates haven't come down? In fact, due to sale & profitability being severely impacted, the TDS itself will have to be refunded very soon. This isn't any stimulus. (2/n)
2. The due date to file Income-tax return and assessment extended. Can some1 from finance ministry explain how it will benefit business. As soon as business will recover from this pandemic, tax inspector will be standing at your door with an IT notice in hand.Great stimulus (3/n)

With PM @narendramodi's call for #AatmanirbharBharat, there's been a lot of discussion and some early activism on swadeshi.

It is important to make the distinction between Made In India ie Made By Indians and Owned By Indians. Former should be the focus, not the latter. (1/n)
Made / Make In India is what the central and state governments are chasing. All the reforms taken up and planned are directed towards inviting firms to set up in India. While Indian firms will expand too, global firms are very much part of the Make In India initiative. (2/n)
Made By Indians in India is what is important. New manufacturing will create the dearly needed jobs and improve our standing as an industrial nation. Shifting the workforce from agriculture and allied activities to industry is the ultimate goal. (3/n)

Be vocal about local. Let's start with the possible goods and services available. Use #swadeshi wherever possible. We must ensure that #MakeInIndia should get new vigour. Quality product with apt pricing will do the needful.
#AatmaNirbharBharat does not imply isolationism or becoming exclusionist. We’ll build capacities, skill people and compete globally acquiring strengths. We’ll build the #Local. After all, every global brand began with their #Local strength. We shall integrate with GVCs.
5 Pillars of Self Reliant Bharat
1. Economy
2. Infrastructure
3. Technology driven system
4. Demography
5. Demand
For this we require Land /Labour/Law/Liquidity. #atmanirbharbharat

#PMModi announces a Rs 20 lakh crore #AatmanirbharBharat package to combat COVID19 focused on land, labour, liquidity and laws. Among other things, it factors in the liquidity support already announced by @RBI. (1/n)
Here's how much liquidity support @RBI has provided:
*Feb - March 27: Rs 2.8 lk cr
*March 27 announcement: Rs 3.74 lk cr (via MSF, CRR & TLTRO)
*April 17 announcement: Rs 25,000 cr via TLTRO 2.0 + Rs 50,000 cr refinance scheme
*April 27 announcement: Rs 50,000 cr SLF-MF

In summary, @RBI has already announced liquidity support of Rs 7.79 lakh crores at least. Yes, some of this has not actually come into the system, example TLTRO 2.0 not fully subscribed, SLF-MF window hardly used. That aside, the total still comes to Rs 7.79 lakh crores (3/n)

Hahahahaha I told people China would help Pakistan. Every1 was giving gyaan Are nahi aisa nahi hoga. Lauda.

China needs PoK2 survive so that CPEC survives. If CPEC dies China's OBOR project dies& with D death of OBOR China will basically lose all its might.
This blue line is CPEC. India has to hurry up once CPEC is completed. Or else We will easily lose Ladakh & J&K easily by 2030-2035. Pakistan will be Chinese colony after CPEC and thus with OBOR and Strings of Pearls. China will successfully surround India and do whatever it wants Image
This map outlines the current border issues of India. As you can clearly see how easy it is for China to cut-off India's head once CPEC is completed. And people don't worry about cost of construction or coronavirus induced RECESSION. Image
