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.
FinMin gives firm indications that NaMo Govt is firmly committed to be in Sell India mode. Now you get what they mean by "Covid is also an opportunity.” I can almost sense the glee.
Coal production to be boosted says FM. Just when energy consumption is declining? Coal India limited under the hammer.
FinMin mkaes important clarification: corporatisation is not privatisation. Hey, I didn't know that!
Now FinMin comes to the exciting area of civil aviation. And where there are planes, opaque PPPs have to be follow. Privatisation of airports.
FinMin starts the pipedream of India becoming an international maintenance hub for aircraft. If India isn't an aviation hub, why should it be a preferred maintenance hub? Well, dont ask too many questions.
Power "reforms"coming. Brace yourself for traffic surges. That it comes as part of #Covid relief package is the shocker.
Remember the scandal of Viability Gap Funding for road projects by which govt allowed companies to indulge in cost padding and then paid them? Well, that is being extended further.
Liberal geospatial data policy coming, says FinMin. I hope I heard it right, unless it's Jiospatial data!
FinMin brings the much-reviled PPP mode to atomic energy. That brings us to stumps on the 4th day of the Covid Test. Remember, play starts early on last day, at 1100 hrs.
