WE shall not compare Singapore with India. Singapore is a City State with a population of 2 lakh in 1970 and now having 53 lakh. India is a 127 crore country, population wise.
Singapore can be compared to some Indian city with similar population size not to India as a whole. Is writer of this news item (TOI) suggesting India to become a Singapore like Country ? India was a free Nation from 1950 to 1984. It enjoyed freedom.
Nehru was hailed as light of Asia by the World. Singapore is a continuing colony just like Australia or Canada.
And Singapore had and has no freedom. It was under the dictatorship of Lee in turn he was a puppet in the hands of the US. It is a Naval and Air force base for the US.
Perhaps India’s downfall started with the advent of Rajiv Gandhi. And BJP under Vajapayee finished the work of subjugation of India by the US. Rest is the story – Manmohan under Sonia congress. Why Nehru bashing for India’s present failings ? Nehru left this world in 1964. Indira’s era ended abruptly in 1984. After that Rajiv took charge that turned the tables in favour of capitalism. Rajiv ended the so called License Raj.
Rajiv centralized Indian administration by bringing in Panchayat raj act. His #AntiDefectionlaw made all MPs and MLAs puppets of rulers of Delhi. So, Indian polity was concentrated in the hands of Delhi rulers.
Later BJP under Vajapayee came in. He had 7 years with him to transform India to make India another Singapore on earth. What he did. He has detonated Nuclear bombs made by Indira and wanted to take credit for the Bomb. And he was responsible for subjugation of India by the US as a result. He was forced to initiated the process of Indo US nuclear deal.
Later Manmohan finished the job. Almost 30 years passed after passage of Indira and 50 year passed after Nehru. Why Nehru and Indira bashing for the failures of PMs since 1984 ? Who prevented any Ruler of Delhi to make India another Singapore after 1984 ? Economic reforms actually made a maiden beginning in 1985 during Rajiv. Reforms became hectic after 1991. Mute Manmohan ruled India for 10 year who studied his economics in Harvard.
Now meek Modi is ruling the country for almost a year. What India achieved after 1991 ? India is roaming around the world with a begging bowl. American military occupied India. Modi is touring Europe to prepare for India to Join NATO.
Indian Industrial growth rate has fallen into negative figures for the last few years after stagnating for 2 decades. Can anyone give an example of a country which neglected industrially make any progress or keep its identity among Nations of the world ? Nehru and Indira made India self sufficient in food grains, steel production, satellite making, satellite launching and so on.
What ails India after Indira ( 1984 ) is lack of Nationalism among rulers of India. Not isms.
The above comment was made by me in Times of India in response to a news item entitled,
" Singapore model can be replicated in India: Industry leaders ", dt. 21.11.2014 in Times of India. The Singapore development model can be successfully replicated in India if it do away with archaic rules like labour laws and learn to tap its existing strengths, industry leaders here believe.Times of India
