BJP Upsets Over GDP Debate

By Anuj K Tiwari

Sources within the BJP have confirmed the differences within the members of BJP about the flex data of the GDP, which often crumbles the government, regardless of who’s in power whether BJP, Congress and Others. The latest report which highlights as how the insensitivities ruled over. Two BJP’s stalwarts have threatened to give a dissent notes against the observations made by Murli Manohar Joshi led panel on GDP growth rates and its computation logic.

Nishikant Dubey, a MP from Jharkhand and Ramesh Bidhuri have told the committee that [they] will not allow the reports neither to be tabled, nor adopted at any circumstances. And this is happening as the bosses of them must have given instructions to not let it be, as this could be quite embarrassing for the BJP, as it came into power an owing to the commitment Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has done in his rallies, and youths were keen to have it.

It is also witnessed that a large number of young voters voted for the BJP in 2014 general election with hope that all of them would get jobs easily which was neither in past, subsequently the data suggests to have that Congress, was also failed to delivered their talled promises which BJP tried to enchased it; but seems not at longer run. This time, the surpass voters have thought to turned their face from exiting range and it would cost the ruling party to a red face off.

research report, backed by RBI stated that during the first two years of the Modi administration, employment in 27 sectors fell by 0.2% and 0.1% respectively. This happened even though GDP growth was at a decent 7.4% and 8.2% in 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively which resulted in a loss of jobs, according to the research’s data. Other independent estimates of job losses and employment rates, such as by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), also have not painted a flattering picture of the ruling party.

While India has been struggling with sluggish growth of employment generation in the last decade, a large chunk of the jobs was severely affected after Modi decided to implement demonetization, and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Nonetheless, M.M. Joshi is a BJP heavyweight and closed to the Sangh so the Modi government cannot directly remove him but, sources say is now considering it specially after he asked former RBI chief Raghuram Rajan to depose before him on the NPA crisis. The Rajan list of fraud NPA’s and given to the PMO for “coordinated investigation” has also been demanded by the estimates committee. Joshi has asked the PMO to tell the committee what action they took on the fraud NPA’s.
