Modi 3.0 Must Move Beyond Temple and Statues

‘Modi 3.0 Must Move Beyond Temple, Statues and Vistas’

Modi 3.0 Must Move Beyond Temple and Statues

Kashish, an aspiring journalist, says Ram Temple or new grand structures will not generate employment for the teeming jobless millions. Her views:

No matter how much our current government is speaking about its glorious work – that it has increased the respect and dignity of India abroad – only ‘us’ know the real condition of our country. In this ‘us’, I am including the people who are hustling for a good job, a good income and a good life. This includes the vast majority of the poor. Yes, I am talking about the youth who are unemployed, even after acquiring the best of educational qualification.

In a recent study, it is revealed that many highly qualified people are filling forms for government jobs like peons, helpers, cleaners, and other low-level posts. This tells us the state of mass unemployment in contemporary India.

Rising joblessness and inflation are the reasons behind this terrible state of affairs. And the main point of concern is that the Indian government is refusing to do anything!

People in India are stuck between the private and government sectors. In the private sector, there are long working hours, less payouts terrible working conditions, and no job-security. Government jobs are like lucky draw coupons – there are too many aspirants and very few jobs!

Hence, there is huge competition in the face of low vacancies. Youngsters like me are afraid and depressed due to this rise and rise of unemployment stalking the nation.

Inflation is on the rise making the survival of the middle class and poor difficult. The saddest part is that our government never wants to talk about unemployment, inflation and other crucial issues; its favourite subject seems to be solely religion, and nothing else.

Tell me, where are the ‘acche din’ as promised by the prime minister of India?

Kashish yearns for an equitable society shorn of differences and discord

Take the NEET paper leak case. The exam involved the emotions and mental health of thousands of students. The sleepless nights and early mornings, bereft of all joys of ordinary life and youth, merely to prepare for an exam on which their future depended. Most of these students come from humble backgrounds; some of them from below the poverty line. For them, it becomes well-nigh impossible to prepare again and again for the same exam, because they have to look for work to sustain their families.

One of my friends secured 670 marks in the exam. He is now in serious depression, because he will not get admission into a ‘dream college’. Who will help him now? When doctors or other professionals make a serious mistake, they are fired! Why should the officers of NTA be not held accountable?

As a journalism student, I can only hope for an honest investigation. The multi-million Ram temple at Ayodha, massive statues and cricket stadiums costing millions, don’t mean anything to us, or, the poor. As young citizens, we do not aspire for these things. We yearn for a peaceful, harmonious and developed society, with no income gap between the rich and poor; a society which supports the poorest of the poor.

Tragically, this seems much too difficult in the Modi era!

The PM’s sole purpose in life seems to promote Hindutva – is he not the prime minister of a secular and pluralist country? Is religion not a private affair? Is it not his duty to treat every religion equally?

He is only promoting temples, statues, stadiums and a new Parliament. How does this help the young? We need a development model which serves the poor and ordinary folks. Tell me, will the Ram Mandir provide jobs and security to the millions? The answer is: No!

Yes I truly agree with some of your views ma’am. But every issue has its own pros and cons , negatives and positives. Keeping that in mind we should try to analyse every aspect of the issue critically in order to be a rational citizen. I’m not a fan follower of any political party but being a rational citizen my only point is that it’s good to question about issues like unemployment but while addressing all these we shouldn’t avoid/neglect the positive works done in this good term.
Talking from the decreasing terrorist attacks to the infra. Development, poverty alleviation schemes, digitalization and first and the foremost the international relations. In this globalised world the most important aspect which I think you are forgetting the global image and connections of India which is only the result of the govt. efforts. The development we have seen in our defence area is the only result of this term.
Yes the NEET issue is really important but we should know that the govt. is taking action from form finding the culprits to resolving the issue.
Talking about the issue of the religion on which basis the govt. Is often criticized, yes the issue of Ram Mandir solved in their term. But now when the hindu narrative is prevailing in the society then everyone is getting hurt. But here I want to ask why??? Just because no one has talked about it earlier.
If we are addressing such a sensitive issue then we should keep in mind that it’s not the Modi or so called ‘Modi Sarkar’ who are promoting communalism but these are conservatives who are doing this and the powers who are trying to spread this narrative. Also, I don’t think that trying to repealing the practices like teen talaak is also a positive intervention which is embedded in India’s defination of secularism…..

Why this article sounds like a completely biased and a way to downgrade current india status. Ok so you mention all the things like govt is doing religion politics like promoting hindutv and all. This article completely sounds a one sided or you can say that a leftist way 🤣. Ok in this article there is no mention about
1. Economic Growth: India’s GDP growth rate increased from 6.4% in 2014 to 8.7% in 2022.

2. Demonetization
3. GST Reform
4. Ayushman Bharat
5. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan
6. Digital India
7. Infrastructure Development
8. Renewable Energy
9. Foreign Policy
10. Social Welfare Schemes: Programs like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana

11. Make in India
12. Startup India
13. Jan Dhan Yojana
14. PM Awas Yojana

Maybe these are the things that should be included in the article. In a country of 140 crore people unemployment will always a issue and everyone thinks government job is only right employment. Bullet train work was stopped by UPA wali maha gathbandhan in Maharashtra.

Why you didn’t include this in your article. I haven’t mention all the things which bjp done like 7 new IITS and 14 new medical (AIIMS) institutions.

I think you should mention all the things which bjp did in their last 10 year tenure and Although BJP did fail in few promises but overall satisfied with their performance especially shutting down west’s taunting of India.

Please do some good journalism, am also a student of JIMC (greater noida) this is completely a biased article targeting all the negatives of govt and hiding good works in the name of NAMO 3.0 , and now i know people like will comment andhbhakhts aur godi media but at same time its not wrong to call people like you a ganndian media 😗. Please do some good work get on grounds.

Thank you mam maybe my feedback will improve your knowledge and you will try to write a biased free article in the future and ya I haven’t mention all the work of bjp so maybe you should study on that

Such a Congress biased article the girl doesn’t even know how much employment was generated by Ram Mandir in Ayodhya for those many unemployed people. Please recheck your facts be neutral and as a journalist you should not take side of particular party.
