'Feel Good' as 'Feel Deceived'
'Hunger, Unemployment and corruption' have become bane of Indian economy under BJP led NDA alliance. Prior to assuming power, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee promised freedom from 'fear and want'. Guided by Sangh Parivar and its many 'avtaars', he delivered exactly the opposite i.e. 'poverty, unemployment and negative growth of core agricultural sector'.
Driven by advertisement oriented media hype, BJP is in a self congratulatory overdrive mode over 8% growth rate achieved in one quarter of current year (July to September 2003).
On the otherside, BJP’s brand of liberalization, privatization and globalization has abdicated the ‘real economy’ – 'employment, poverty alleviation and agriculture'.
We, at Youth Congress, have initiated a drive to expose the myth of BJP's feel good based on statistics available in economic survey, CSIO’s report and World Bank’s assessments.
Intellectuals and society’s leaders have responded on a positive note on our comparison of 'feel good' as 'feel deceived'.
