canada goose black friday sale Question: Which of the Indian prime ministers do you think Narendra Modi has modelled himself after? canada goose black friday sale

canada goose coats Answer: canada goose outlet store uk Definitely not his party predecessor Atal Behari Vajpayee. canada goose coats

cheap Canada Goose The jury is still out on which past prime minister Modi resembles a third of the way into his term. But uncanny similarities were being noticed between him and Indira Gandhi in the run up to the Union Budget, and after it was tabled in Parliament on February 29. It is not just their way of functioning (both are regarded as autocratic) or their charisma (both led their parties to famous victories on their personal popularity) but increasingly in how they define their common enemies and priorities once the canada goose outlet toronto factory odds stack up against them. If Indira spoke of the “foreign hand” that constantly plotted to destabilise her regime, a week before the canada goose outlet 2015 Budget Modi lashed out at foreign funded NGOs whose “aim has canada goose outlet michigan been to finish Modi”. cheap Canada Goose

canadian goose jacket In the face of the challenge to her leadership after the Great Congress Split of 1969, Indira Gandhi announced ‘Garibi Hatao’ the single largest anti poverty programme since Independence. It helped her appeal directly to the canada goose outlet in toronto rural and urban poor and saw canada goose outlet legit her win the 1971 general elections by a landslide. Her 20 point programme included a massive rural employment guarantee scheme, drinking water for all villages and rural electrification. canadian goose jacket

canada goose Modi, increasingly vulnerable after his party’s recent electoral defeats in the state assembly elections, and confronted with an economic slowdown, rural distress, a steep fall in exports, rising criticism of his government for being pro rich and growing civil unrest in the country, has in some ways outdone Indira Gandhi. He utilised Budget 2016 to announce one of the largest ever funding of farm and poverty alleviation programmes that he hopes will put the Indian economy on an even higher growth path and win him a second term (see accompanying report). canada goose

buy canada goose Canada Goose Outlet jacket In doing so, Modi has sought to remove the suit boot sarkar tag that Rahul Gandhi had given him and replace it with a dhoti kurta image, projecting himself as the new messiah of the poor and oppressed. The prime minister has also re established himself as a “development wallah” but is yet to get the Sangh parivar to rein in its divisive agenda, which it has been pursuing with renewed vigour of late. Unlike Indira Gandhi, who ran both the government and the Congress pretty much the way she wanted, Modi has to contend with the growing influence of the RSS in government decisions. buy canada goose jacket

Canada Goose online To be fair, there are other differences with Indira Gandhi’s style that work to Modi’s advantage. While she canada goose outlet washington dc went far down the road of socialism by nationalising key sectors, including banking, Modi has been careful to tread the middle path. So even as the prime minister pumped funds into poverty alleviation, he ensured massive investments in building infrastructure, particularly in the transport and housing sectors. He also signalled that he would carry on with the liberalisation process by permitting 100 per cent FDI in the agro processing sector, incentivising private gas production and freeing the road transport sector of constraints and restrictions.

buy canada goose jacket cheap On the tax front, while no relief has been provided to the corporate sector, the Budget has put an end to “tax terrorism” by simplifying tax procedures and dispute resolution, and by removing all doubts about retrospective taxation. More importantly, even while the Modi government injected massive doses of funds across several programmes and sectors, it has stayed committed to maintaining fiscal discipline by keeping to its deficit targets. Says a senior finance ministry official, “That decision made the difference from the Budget initiatives being termed popular instead of populist.” buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose sale This fiscal prudence was apparently arrived at after a heated debate in government circles. Some of the prime minister’s key advisors asked him to dump the fiscal restraints as an unwanted legacy of the past and to spend on programmes regardless. Others cautioned him, and as one official put it, “likened it to India suddenly deciding that all cars should have left hand drive without proper preparation”. Modi tilted in favour of prudence and struck a fine balance. That decision reassured global investors and saw the stock canada goose outlet usa market bounce back after the Budget was presented. A senior MEA official says, “My heart sank initially with the focus on poverty alleviation programmes, but once infrastructure investments, taxation measures and fiscal restraint were read out, I knew foreign investors would be relieved canada goose outlet jackets and rally behind India. Of course, they would have wanted better but they can’t complain.”That the Budget canada goose parka uk had the prime minister’s imprint all over it was apparent. He held around 10 meetings with all the key departments, and personally went over the plans for each of the key thrust areas, be it agriculture, the rural sector, education, health, energy, transport or taxation. Senior officials present said that Modi was acutely aware that the global environment was unusually volatile, the world economy was shaky and the Indian economy had to be fortified against future fallouts. Also that while low oil prices canada goose sale uk had helped line his government coffers, the situation may not be permanent. Modi told officials, “Let us not wait for the global crisis to impact us, instead we should be proactive and take measures to minimise it.” Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Parka The PM also expressed deep concern over rural distress caused by two successive crop failures in key states across the country and stressed on the need to provide relief. During the discussions on the Budget, he canada goose outlet belgium made it clear that the focus should be heavily on agriculture and rural development, apart from massive public investments in infrastructure to boost growth. He was aware that the manufacturing sector was floundering, exports canada goose stockists uk were dipping and domestic private investment was down. So he decided to bet on a massive infusion of government funds to drive economic growth faster and higher. Says a senior official, “The prime minister is banking on a demand and consumption led canada goose outlet germany growth while maintaining fiscal restraint to provide the necessary stimulus for the economy. But he was also clear that the funds should go towards asset creation, such as roads, that would have a multiplier effect.” His government is also banking on the fact that there have rarely been three consecutive years of agriculture failure. So Modi’s team expects a good canada goose outlet real monsoon this year, thereby improving canada goose outlet black friday the chances of the economy growing faster. Canada Goose Parka

canada goose store Post the Budget, there has canada goose outlet locations in toronto been much debate over whether the prime minister, who had come to power promising reforms and proclaiming that “the government should not be in the business of business” has strayed away from the path. His critics charge him with adopting a policy of economic gradualism, slowing up on disinvestment and relying too much on heavy public investment to fuel growth. canada goose store

canada goose clearance sale Modi is apparently not one for conventional ideological classifications of being Right or Left wing, telling aides, “I will create wealth and distribute it.” About his economic policy, the PM made it clear last year when he said canada goose jacket outlet at an event, “There are no contradictions between doing big ticket items and doing small things. One approach is to have new policies, programmes, large projects and path breaking changes. Another is to focus on the small things that matter, create a people’s movement and generate mass momentum, which then drives development. https://www.canadagoosejacketsaleca.com We need to follow both paths.” In Budget 2016, he struck a fine balance between these paths. And he did not shy away from embracing the previous government’s policies and improving them, as he has done with Aadhar and MGNREGA. As he told one of his aides, “My economic vision is growth, and I won’t be satisfied till we attain double digit growth in GDP in the coming years.” canada goose clearance sale

canada goose coats on sale Hours after the Union Budget was tabled in Parliament, Modi summoned senior officials to the PMO and told them, “The Budget is done, start implementing it.” The prime minister is acutely conscious that much of the success of the Budget will depend on the speedy implementation of the maze of schemes he has announced. Talking about India’s red tape, he had famously said, “In life, people go on a canada goose outlet winnipeg address chaar dham yatra (pilgrimage to four sacred abodes) to get moksha. In government, a file has to go to chhattis (36) dhams and still not get canada goose outlet ottawa moksha.” Now that canada goose outlet new york he is in the driver’s seat, the prime minister must pull out all stops for India to attain economic moksha canada goose coats on sale.
