Good days have arrived

Yes, finally “acche din aagaye hain”. After garnering massive majority, Narendra Modi has a very good opportunity to put the vehicle of development in motion as early as possible. The article written by Chetan Bhagat published in a popular daily is well articulated and I tend to mostly agree with what has been mentioned by him. There are advantages of a gaining clear mandate but there are disadvantages too. Let us be positive and trust Modi to harvest the advantages by carefully avoiding the disadvantage of falling in any possible RSS trap like “mandir banana sarkar ka kaam hai”. The RSS must strictly focus on citizen development and work as a support team in developmental endeavours.

Modi is allowed a week or fortnight of expressing his happiness in which ever way he likes but soon thereafter he has to put the governmental machinery to work for fulfilling the promises made in the agenda. The number of elected MPs will mostly concentrate on housing and numerous other perks. Work will have to be done at the ground level so the workers at this level will have to be mobilized and they should be supervised by senior officers. It should commence from the gram sabha level or through the level of anganwadi workers.

For working, you need skills. Skills will have to be imparted to our youth through programmes charted out with industrialists like TATA, Reliance, Adani , L&T etc. He says that the pre-requisite is to be strong and the same applies to our work force also which is strong and skilled. It is here that the organizations like the RSS should contribute. We should build more such organizations of skilled experts for offering training to youngsters. Muslims, by and large, are very skilled and they should be encouraged to impart “hunar” in our youth. Youth power is our asset and we have to channelise their energy towards constructive work. They should not be considered as mere wage earners but working for the progress of India.

Amit Shah has done a good job so far. He must remain close to Modi and assist him and also keep him away from the bad elements. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is qualified and young leader and his services must be utilized for bigger tasks. Murli Manohar Joshi had served as the Human Resources Development minister under the government formed under Atal Behari Vajpayee’s reign. Joshi did not do justice to his job so why should he be offered the same ministry once again. Why can’t the post be offered to some other leader who has a proven track record?
