To understand Modi phenomenon, we must understand the global economic recession or economic slowdown. Yes, India is a part of this event and more so after 1992 when the so called economic reforms started. 1992 was part of neo liberalism, which advocated business without intervention of government, which in reality meant open corruption by the business class. Not that, earlier, these exploiters were doing the business honestly but it was a means to break the national barriers of developing nations, where some governments and opposition made hue and cry on FDIs and MNCs and created hindrance to own businessmen letting open loot of national wealth and market! Bureaucracy was another hindrance, which wanted share in loot and this neo liberalism wanted to break that hurdle to maximise the profit. Workers, on the other hand, were desperate due extreme exploitation which resulted from unemployment, lowering of direct wages and indirectly due rising inflammation, bureaucratic and even state coercion, humiliation, corruption and were revolting world over against state and corporates’ tyranny. This led to neo-liberalism, a well-planned move by Imperialists and ensured its extension in other countries through their puppet governments, corporates and opposition. Here starts story of Narendra Modi in India! 2008 started economic slowdown but unlike 2000 and earlier in 1992, boom did not follow till now according to the economic cycle or norms since 200 years.
GDP showed decline and Corporates’ lovers MMS and others were restless. BJP saw a chance to rise as an alternate to Congress but they did not have any alternate to Congress’ philosophy. Readers may remember Shatrughan Sinha and Arun Shourie’s statement who declared both the parties same and their economic and foreign policies similar! Religiosity and national chauvinism had been their pet slogan to attract masses. Something more was needed and that was personality cult and LK Advani had run out of the charisma, with which he had ensured earlier, a BJP led central government. Modi fitted in this framework and BJP happily granted more than 400 Crore for his propaganda which also included change of his personality so that people do find this 2002 blood stained man bit presentable! So there comes Modi on national level with branded and foreign level goggles, watch, Corporates’ aided aeroplanes, helicopters, prepared lectures, yet with blunders which BJP tries to cover with hired goons and hired social media trolls who not only keep chanting NAMO but join together in abusing the critics with lowest level possible and physically assault (Slightly different than what Congressmen do when Rahul Gandhi talks rubbish and is criticised)! As far as Corporates, MNCs and FDI agencies are concerned, they sensed pretty well that the Congress will not be able to form government this time and as far as 3rd front is concerned, may not be good news for their drooping profit(Call it GDP?).
