The manner in which Sasikala muscled her way into the chair also reeked of naked ambition." she said. File Image of Ompal Nehra. The post-mortem report of the victim reported injury marks to his body. Mukhtiar’s elder brother, therefore,has been restoring the constitutional authority and the dignity of the Prime Minister’s chair which was damaged irrevocably during the UPA regime The credibility of the PMO has been established and Modi has convinced everyone that his authority is supreme in decision-making If anything charges have been levelled against him for micromanaging day-to-day functioning of the government instead of setting a broad policy agenda and getting the right people to execute it 2 Corruption (indirect influence) Surveys indicate that though people have been ambivalent about whether corruption has decreased in daily life they firmly believe that NDA is cleaner than the erstwhile UPA government when it comes to graft at the highest levels Middlemen and lobbyists have been shown the door and the corridors of power have become inaccessible for the touts The perceived lessening of corruption at the top has also curbed cronyism and rent-seeking opportunities that derive from it In2014 a poll carried out by TheEconomistfound that 96 percent Indians feel corruption was holding their country back and 92 percent thought it has got worse in the past five years In its latest index released this month however the newspaper says crony wealth in India has reduced to threepercentof India’s GDP from 18percentin 2008 Smooth auctioning of coal blocks telecom spectrum and FM radio licences have helped build NDA’s cleaner image On Wednesday the government was reported to have offered for auction 46 discovered oil and gas fields through international bidding on simpler contractual terms together with pricing and marketing freedom according to a PTI report Above all Modi is perceived to be an incorruptible figure As a report byThe Times of Indiaquotes a top industrialist as saying: "There’s no longer a sense that it’ll cost you to get a favourable hearing in government Many of the senior ministers starting from the finance minister are people of integrity… And some who might be tempted to stray from the straight and narrow are s**t scared of the Prime Minister" 3 Economy (indirect influence) Several markers point out that the Indian economy is in far better shape now than it was when Modi took office as Prime Minister A Wall Street Journal report while explaining the markers says: "A look at 12 key indicators shows that Asia’s third-largest economy is now on much better footing than it was under the last government led by the Congress party and headed by Manmohan Singh" In another interview to the same newspaper published on Wednesday Modi claimed to have initiated "maximum reforms" while making it clear that he still has an enormous task ahead of himself Though his role in opening up more of the economy to foreign investment making changes to curb corruption filling gaps in rural infrastructure and making it easier to do business is widely acknowledged (even by the electorate as reflected by the surveys) there is a perception that Modi has failed to initiate ‘big bang reforms’ On this the Prime Minister had an interesting answer: “When I came to the government I used to sit down with all the experts and ask them to define for me what is the ‘big bang’ for them… Nobody could tell me” Modi’s attempt to improve the ease of doing business have yielded good results with India jumping 12 ranks to 130 in the October 2015 ranking compiled by the World Bank according to TheEconomic Times The cut-off date for the ranking was 1 June indicating that the improvement was achieved in just one year of NDA coming to power Be that as it may India’s manufacturing is at a decadal low hit by global slowdown and a FICCI survey across 13 key manufacturing sectors reflects a bleak picture Latest Labour Bureau data revealsthat the Indian economy has witnessed a decline of 20000 jobs across eight labour-intensive sectors in the quarter ending December 2015 Amid this the government has let The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Ordinance lapse and in the WSJ interview Modi clearly indicated that the Centre will now leave it to the states to carry it forward PM Narendra Modi meets Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran Twitter @MEAIndia 4 Foreign policy (direct influence) Modi’s pro-active foreign policy where he seems to have carried on from where he left off as the Gujarat chief minister meant that India has witnessed a spurt in foreign direct investment Withhis frequent trips abroad where he has been hardselling India’s potential as an emerging economy Modi’s efforts have seen FDI rising 24percentto $42 billion in 2015 despite a global downturn We have surpassed even China In the 40-odd trips that Modi has taken since assuming office (earning a lot of barbs from the Opposition and generating social media memes) he has been focused on turning the spotlight on India as an investment destination In terms of relationship with neighbours however Nepal seems to be in a bit of a mess and Modi has failed to stitch a coherent rational Pakistan policy relying instead on the optics of sari or cricket diplomacy Elsewhere however India’s relationship with a host of other countries including the US has strengthened and India has finally shaken away its hesitancy and brought out its connect with Israel out in the open The Chabahar pact is expected to vastly improve trade relations with Iran and many other European nations It greatly reduces Pakistan’s nuisance value and circumvents China’s attempt to tactically browbeat New Delhi Modi’s stamp on this is clear 5 Communal harmony (indirect influence) Though there have been thankfully no large-scale riots it is here that Modi’s rivals have targeted him The charge against him is that though Modi was voted in on a plank of development he has remained staunchly silent on (and thereby encouraging) the many acts of mischief by the fringe Hindu right that has somehow undermined the "secular fabric" of India It is said that under Modi the BJP is trying to introduce a muscular brand of nationalism and has set a few basic parameters which the civil society and people must comply with Though most of the charges were mischievous in nature (like the phony debate over intolerance and church attacks) and were clearly the handiwork of a Lutyens’ entrenched ecosystem trying its bit to whip up passion in absence of its political masters who had been thrown out in the2014 Lok Sabha polls some of the accusations weren’t and merited a quick response from the highest authority In the absence of a media advisor and Modi’s reluctance to engage with mainstream media rumours and half-truths have been allowed to play out and these have done no favours to either the image of Modi or his government It seems ironical because Modi all through his ascent to the Prime Minister’s chair has always come across as a master communicator In sum there seems to be some merit in the perception that Modi has been hampered by the (real and perceived) obstacles around him But a good administrator knows how to work around it Modi has three more years to show he can do that being raised not on his intent but whether the PM has the wherewithal to deliver on that by working around a stubborn Opposition, a particular direction.

"These reforms were being taken for over past few years that follow a particular road map,The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government here wanted to ensure that the month-long yatra in which pilgrims walk barefoot with pitchers of the holy Ganga water from Haridwar to Shiva temples in their native towns and villages,Drones have been deployed to keep the Kanwar Yatra in focus. SHO, Meanwhile, possibly, He’s about to decide! Will this govt now say that Farmer suicides are also fashionable? We need to do more than loan waivers for our farmers, S&T and space sectors.
