It amazes me that so many "educated" Indians who claim to promote liberty are constantly deluded about communist BJP.
I've had no delusions about BJP since I know many of these guys personally from a long time. They are often even more socialist than Nehru.
Even as Congress is moving away from Nehru's legacy, BJP has taken ownership of Nehru's red flag and taken it well into the communist camp.
All economic reforms to date have come from Congress (Rajiv Gandhi's IT and partial trade liberalisation, Narasimha Rao's licensing liberalisation, and Manmohan Singh's recent introduction of modern administrative mechanisms in India's public administration – and more open FDI).
Not one major economic reform has ever originated in BJP. Only obstacles to reform.
Victor Mallet reports the views of Indian communists:
“The tragedy is that our prime minister has begun to worship the US,” said Sitaram Yechury, leader of the opposition Communist Party of India – Marxist. “Congress wants Indians to be slaves and foreigners to be our masters. We will not accept FDI [foreign direct investment] in retail. We will protest this decision till our last breath.” [Source]
Given this ongoing pathetic performance of BJP (e.g. Modi's racist comments) and BJP's communist buddies (and Modi's bans on books, plus almost certain involvement in mass murder), it is shocking that "educated" Indians constantly hype up Modi and BJP.
I'm sick of these communists and racists. What idiots – to link free trade and consumer choice (liberty) with "slavery".
Turning the basics of logic up side down won't get India very far. Just shows that dunces tend to become "leaders" in this up-side-down country called India. Merit is shunned. Dunces like Modi and Yechury are promoted.
With such intellectual midgets and bigoted pygmies as its leaders, the dreams many of us have for India will never materialise. India will remain poor and stupid. And the best Indians will leave, never to return.
The best Indians would rather work as second class citizens in the lands of the "goras" (this is not mine but MODI's characterisation), than as first class citizens in a country that is ruled by GOLD MEDAL IDIOTS.
