Thread on some #KeyTakeaways from #LokSabhaElections2019 results:
1. There was always a #Modi wave but the #LeLi Commentariat insisted it was an undercurrent against Modi and #BJP.
2. Losses in Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh in 2018 were an aberration and not a trend. 1/n
3. Vote transfers do not happen between historically hostile parties. Anticipated vote transfer did not happen in #UP. SP-BSP #MahaGathBandhan was nonstarter.
4. Never mind the bunk peddled by pop political analysts. #India would prefers Government with single-party majority. 2/n
5. Mamata Banerjee underestimated Hindu backlash to her brazen Muslim appeasement and pandering to illegal Bangladeshi immigrants.
6. She overestimated the ability of party goons to strike fear among voters. It took 34 years for LF to unravel; TMC less than 10 years. 3/n

Know an army of 2004 fans out there. They are hoping for a resurrection like 2004. Tough life being a faithful.

2004 was easy picking. 2019 seems to be a Royal pickling.
2004 had no counter narratives from the people. It was fought between politicians. 1/5 #Elections2019
Social media did not exist. No counter narratives. BJP ran history’s most boastful campaign. Two men, Advani&Mahajan thought they had won before it began. And, most importantly, media like NDTV were puppies. To them, PM was Pramod Mahajan. Barkha & Rajdeep were at PM’s feet. 2/5
The congress fought with its back to the wall. It was a spirited battle. The leader knew her weaknesses. She underplayed herself. Her political Hand was placed on he people’s conscience. She did not indulge in hyperbole. Spoke from a script with facts. Think of Rahul now. 3/5

व्हेनेझुएला,लोकसंख्या हा गंभीर प्रश्न नसलेला देश.
उपजाऊ जमीन,भरपूर पाऊस,शेकडो नद्या हजारो मैलांचा समुद्र किनारा.
सऊदी अरेबियापेक्षा मोठी,जगात सर्वात मोठी क्रूड ऑइल आरक्षित आहे.
तरीही आज हा देशामध्ये अन्नाचा भयंकर तुटडवा,प्रचंड महागाई,डबघाईला आला आहे.

असे का झाल?


२० वर्षांपूर्वी व्हेनेझुएला एक विकसित व समृद्ध राष्ट्र होते.
पण आज भारतीय रुपयाच्या बदल्यात ३६०० व्हेनेझुएला बोलिव्हर्स मिळतील,परिस्थिती इतकी वाईट आहे की बर्याच महिला केवळ जेवणासाठी वाममार्गाचा पर्याय निवडतात.
शहरात कुठेही लुटालुट होते.

काय चुकल या देशाचे-नेत्यांचे?


दुसऱ्या महायुद्धात जगात तेलाला प्रचंड मागणी होती मग किंमती ही वाढल्या.
राजकारण,चुकीचे धोरण,अमाप पैसा यामुळे देशाने नागरिकांना मोफत अन्नधान्य, फळे, भाज्या, औषधे, यंत्रसामग्री आणि वस्त्रे व सेवा देण्यास सुरवात केली.

त्यामुळे कष्ट करण्याची इच्छाच मेली,देश परावलंबी झाला.

Some trivia on Congress's #NYAY:

1) Cash transfer of ₹6,000/month or ₹72K/yr (Survival Income – which is nothing more, or less, than poverty line income) to the bottom 20% households (“poorest 20%”) proposed to be transferred directly into bank accounts of women head of family
-According to publicly available info, this cash transfer is not a top-up scheme
-In 2014, Rangarajan Committee defined people as poor whose monthly per capita expenditure is below ₹1407 in urban & below ₹972 in rural areas. Per capita transfer proposed is avg of these figures?
#NYAY is expected to cost ₹3.6 trillion or 1.7% of forecasted GDP for 2019-20

Chidambaram said: “Our calculation shows that it will not cross 2% of GDP, it will be 1.8% of the GDP"?

Per public sources, Thomas Piketty Abhijit Banerjee & Raghuram Rajan been consulted on this?

Thread on #NYAY Things to mull over: Proposal is to fill income gap of individual households up to Rs 72,000 per annum and NOT give each 'poor family' Rs 72,000 per annum
2. So the total outlay will be much below a simple maths of Rs 72,000 x 5crore households.
3. The only income survey i know of is SECC. That only asks which household has highest earner earning below Rs 5,000 per moth
