Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
4/n @narendramodi begins his speech by recalling the sacrifice of the great personalities of #Medinipur. (Earlier @DilipGhoshBJP referred to #SyamaPrasadMukherjee's role in the district getting Jan Sangh 6 seats in the first elections #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
5/n PM #Modi lists the development projects in the pipeline for #WestBengal and allocations in the #Budget2021. He then refers to economic decline of #Bengal in the last six decades - across sectors education, industry et al. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
6/n Now, #Modi turns to the "international conspiracy" against India - in addition to Tea (which he mentioned in 3Assam) now adds #Yoga referring to the contribution of #SriAurobindo and #SwamiVivekananda - saying #MamataBanerjee has been silent on these. #ModiInBengal #Haldia
7/n PM #Modi recalls #Marichjhanpi and links it with #Nandigram - a double swipe at one stroke on #Trinamool and #CPIM. Messaging - one must learn from @narendramodi. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections
8/n #PMModi underscores - whatever benefits of Corona relief have reached people of #WestBengal is through DBT schemes of GOI. But, farmers have been deprived of central schemes because of #WestBengal government not coming on board. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections
9/n #Modi's speech in #Haldia replete with references of #BJP government's schemes for farmers. This indirectly indicates his position remians firm on the #FarmLaws. #WestBengalElections #ModiInBengal
10/n Big announcement by #NarendraModi in #Haldia - says if BJP comes to power in #WestBengal it will pay arrears of PM Kisan Schemes to #Bengal farmers that they were deprived of. Talks of "Ashol (Asli) Poriborton". Draws parallel with #Tripura. #ModiInBengal
11/n #Modi makes repeated mention of #WestBengal government's non-participation in central schemes like #AyushmanBharat and One-nation-one-ration-card. Draws a football analogy of "fouls" and "red card". #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections
12/n #NarendraModi pays homage to #AkhtarAli and conveys his condolences to his bereaved family. Wonderful attention to details. Links it with not letting guard down on #Covid19 and #vaccination campaign. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections
13/n Bengali TV Channels carried verbatim translation of #PMModi's speech. Would have great impact and raise many questions in the minds of people. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections
14/n The take aways of #PMModi's speeches in #Assam and #WestBengal have equal relevance at the national level as for the states he visited - especially regarding #FarmLaws and #Farmers. 14/14 #ModiInBengal #ModiInAssam
13/n2 Bengali TV Channels carried verbatim translation of #PMModi's speech. Would have great impact and raise many questions in the minds of people. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElections

Problem is the blind polarisation among the upper-crust - who refuse to see anything good in #Modi. Many had forwarded to me the clip of an MP criticising #PMCaresFund hailing her as the new start in parliamentarian. Same people not interested in #NirmalaSitharaman’s rebuttal.
2/n Similarly, not a word of condemnation for the pandemonium caused in #RajyaSabha (despite televised footage) by the opposition but all sympathies with suspended MPs protesting in the laws of Parliament House and lamenting the “death of democracy”. 3/n
3/n Same set of businessmen and industrialists who have been crying hoarse about labour reforms suddenly start talking like Trade Union leaders. Would love to see their reaction if the government withdraws the amendments in #LabourCodes 4/n

Among other things, #PranabMukherjee was said to have the memory of an elephant. Remembered the minutest detail from years ago.
Remember an interview of Arun Shourie by @ShekharGupta in #WalkTheTalk when UPA2 was floundering. He told SG that - had it not been for #PranabMukherjee who was the only person who had credibility within the Congress and with the Opposition the government would have collapsed.
Perhaps, the unkindest cut was - when Manmohan Singh went for his coronary bypass surgery #SoniaGandhi refused to name #PranabMukherjee the interim No 2 despite his being the senior most in the cabinet (she formed a joint committee with AK Antony. Such insecurity.

Right now DR @APanagariya speaking at @BenCham1833 Leadership Series on the impact of the pandemic #ArvindPanagariya #BengalChamber
2/n Dr #ArvindPanagariya endorses the government's decision not to front-end the "demand stimulus" - because with labour not being there and enterprises shut - Supply Curve being vertical - it wouldn't have worked. #COVID19India #BengalChamber
3/n Dr #ArvindPanagariya thinks it was the right decision to focus first on food security and controlling infection spread. Next, the interventions by RBI on liquidity and credit lines was the logical second step #COVID19India #BengalChamber

In an atmosphere of doom and gloom, refreshing to hear industry leaders and bankers at the launch of Akhil Gupta's "Some Sizes Fit All" sound more optimistic than our economists and commentariat @bhanshireen @rajivmemani @Kalpnamorparia @kakunakhate #books #economy #IndianEconomy Image
Talking of a SWOT #KakuNakhate of @BankofAmerica thinks India is far better geo-politically today - though she sounded a word of caution on the situation at the borders. #KalpanaMorparia of @jpmorgan appeared to be bullish on banking reforms and RBI interventions. @CNBCTV18Live
The best came from @rajivmemani of @EY_India, who highlighted the "talent pool" from India providing critical services around the globe at this time of the pandemic. That combined with the technology progress can be a differentiator in the postcovid world. #SomeSizesFitAll #books

Interesting to hear @PereraJehanpc in @iicdelhi’s Neighbourhood First - on #SriLanka’s recent election and return of the Rajapaksas. He appeared to be optimistic about the new government with 2/3 majority - for the very same reasons Indian liberals are unhappy with #Modi 2.0 Image
2/n On #SriLanka-India relationship, @SultanaGulbin i
expects a more pragmatic approach from both the #mahindarajapaksa government and #Modi-2.0 on all fronts - political, military, tourism and cultural but not, perhaps, economic - notwithstanding the “blow hot, blow cold” past.
3/n Jehan Perera states very plainly, #SriLanka sees #Pakistan as a “balancing power” against India. Listening to people like Perera it becomes clear how we screwed up our relations with SL by the #IPKF misadventure.

PM #NarendraModi remembers #SriAurobindo - whose birth anniversary is also celebrate 15th August - at the start of his #IndependenceDay speech.
#PMModiOnIndependenceDay As expectedly - PM Modi begins in his speech the #CoronaWarriors but also expresses his sympathies for families who have lost relatives to #Covid19
#PMIndependenceDaySpeech PM #Modi speaks of the need to renew our resolve as we approach the 75th anniversary of Independence. 4/n
