KolkataDr Rina MukherjiDemonetisation has caused many small enterprises to fold up, and increased unemployment, particularly in the informal sector. No government should aim at that.But picking on any community is wrong; no criticism can be justified if it is founded on parochial lines. It is important to refrain from such statements. As a mature group of educated individuals, we ought to steer clear of such statements.

Under this, Modi is responsible for each and every consequence of his actions.Mr. Modi's secret actions, taken to benefit his cronies and himself, have shaken the faith and trust of common people in banking system, and India's currency itself. Instructions are being sent out to all the bhakts to lay the blame anywhere but at Modi's doorstep for his personal failure and "personal involvement in corruption" by this demonetisation.It is inevitable that this demonetisation will cause people to buy and hoard even more gold which will inevitably cause our balance of payments to reverse. Now with US Fed raising interest rates hot FDI money is sure to flow out of India and the rising oil prices by OPEC cartel will put pressure on acche din which will only take place through manipulated and shallow rises in stock market timed from Q1:April-June 2017 after BJP wins rigged UP elections after buying off BSP.RP DalviOn Thu, Dec 15, 2016 at 12:19 AM, Sangeeta Bhasin <email@example.com> wrote:
1) how is modi responsible if the bank managers and other indian citizens are corrupt?2) enough provision was nade to allow reasoable withdrawals by people in an austere scenario. if the entire operations were sabatoged by the bank and other people responsible for this, we should laud the response of the govt for having caught them redhanded the delay in catching the culprits was because they needed to be caught redhanded not giving the opposition any chance to again make noise.3) how deep the cancer of corruotion has spread makes it even more important that we support the efforts for our better future.Sangeetabhasin

I fail to understand why Modi is credited with the economic rise of Gujarat. It was booming before the BJP itself was created, in the time of Chimanbhai Patel, for instance. In British times Gujaratis moved out of their region and bought up extensive properties in Bombay and in Calcutta, the first Raj capital. In fact, we could go back over 3-4000 years to Harappan times to see how Gujarati businesses together with Chinese traders on the Silk Route and countries of the Near East established cities, ports, carnelian and silk factories (and, later, diamond polishing houses) as important international manufacturing and trading centres in South Asia.
Modi's contribution has been to bend legislation and mould political opinion to favour a certain class of business people with a particular religious affilliation, at the expense of its minority and ethnic tribal population.
And under him it has indeed become a police state, home to faked terrorist attacks, fake encounters, killing of innocent 'suspects' in police custody and a state-supported pogrom against Muslims, else why were his police chief and minister arrested and put into jail after 2002? There has been grievious dispossession of tribal, farming and minority communities and huge environmental degradation by irresponsible industrial houses. The Sabarmati river and Alang are among the most polluted places on earth. Gujarat's future generations will pay the price for these policies.

Re: [IAC#RG] Can nation be trusted in hands of Gujaratis ?
Dr Rina Mukheree,
I share your views .We should not be parochial and communal when opposing or supporting some policies as well as personalities.In a functional democracy like ours, we should not be forgetful that we belong to a multi cultural nation .
I hope the moderators of indiaresists will not not allow such mail to be circulated.
