#VikasGayaBangladesh, really?

1/ fact number one.

GDP (nominal) - India is FIFTH largest in the world. It was at 10th position in 2014.

Bangladesh is at 39th.
2/ fact number two.

GDP (PPP) - India is THIRD largest. It has maintained this position since 2011.

Bangladesh is at 30th.
3/ fact number three.

GDP per capita - India was at 147th in 2014, now its at 139th, it had reached 126th in 2017.

our growth:

$998 (2008)
$1,487 (2013)
$1,876 (2019)
4/ now, our GDP per capita isn't pretty great as compared to the whole world.

we are second largest population with fifth largest economy. Per capita means, GDP per person!

But we have improved in past six years (both in actual terms and in position on the world table
5/ India's nominal GDP and PPP crushes Bangladesh by a HUGE margin but our per capita GDP, that has always been low, is now being compared with Bangaldesh, since they have improved it too.
6/ for this, an IMF report is being selectively quoted. It is being ignored that same report predicts that India will be fasted growing economy in 2021 with 8.8% growth, while Bangladesh will register 4.4% growth in same time.
7/ Therefore, this selective quoting of data to paint a picture that India is doing worse than Bangladesh economically, is nothing more than disgraceful misquoting of a data point!

[Thread] Line of Letters from Maharastra.
1/ Governor to CM | Key points:

👉 you declared re-opening in June and now putting lockdown

👉 its ironical to open bars and keeping religious places shut. Rest of the India opened it in June itself.

👉 you were strong hindutva-wadi, have you turned secular - a term you hated
2/ CM to governor | key points:

👉 Inviting people who call mumbai PoK with smiles doesn't fall into my hindutva

👉 secularism is key component of constitution, by which you swore

👉It is wrong to impose/lift it lockdowns suddenly

👉 I don't need certificate on my hindutva
