My trip to the various countries has been getting extensive coverage in the desi media. The media in the countries I have visited also have given me fair coverage. If you are in a G20 meet you have to compete with Obama and Jaco Zuma for media space, back home you have to compete with Salaman bhai’s sister. I hope you are impressed with the competition I handle to stay on top on the news. I am worried as a old RSS hand and a big nationalist at heart….is the political competition so weak that I have to compete with Salman bhai in media space? At this rate I can skip the reforms for 2-3 years more and still stay in the headlines. I just have to keep track whose sister is getting married next…
We are planning to end the inspector Raj. This is one saheb whom we all dread. He pays surprise visits and takes un-budgeted bribes. This type of un-budgeted bribes deprive the nation of entrepreneurs!
As the first step, we are attacking un-budgeted bribes. Better cash planning is critical for the industry. So these ayaram-gyaram type of inspectors are the first bunch we are attacking as a part of our big ticket reforms in tiny steps. Industrialist and entrepreneurs…no more un-budgeted bribes from now!
Due to the elections in Maharashtra and Haryan where I am likely to be reelected as the Prime Minister of India you folks will be busy watching TV and so I thought I will post in on my unofficial blog. Economic Times is covering it...here
My guidelines to him are clear for the diplomatic design
- It should not be like the Nehru jacket for the obvious reasons
- It should not be a Kurta. It is too flexible and simple which we do not want to be.
- It should not be a sherwani – it looks more inflexible with a predetermined agenda
