In its first anniversary, the ruling National Democratic Alliance(NDA) has come under scanner for not performing on its promised expectations before the people. Between the hustle-bustle of 24×7 media voices marketing ‘Modi’, Political Mirror(PM) correspondent Mohammad Kamran spoke at length with Senior Comrade and National Secretary of CPI Communist (CPI), Amarjeet Kaur.
Eexcerpts from the interview
PM: Throw light on Narendra Modi’s one year in power?
Kaur : Shallow and false promises, his schemes like Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojna and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Beema Yojna has benefitted none. No sound economic planning has been undertaken to steer this country ahead by the current regime.
PM: What you think about ‘Make in India’ scheme? Is it beneficial for the country?
Kaur: Make in India programme under which Modi ji is touring countries on our expenditure, in the name of devotement is only establish a capitalist system across the country People were fed up with the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government and looked for an alternative, so the BJP came to power. ‘Ache Din Ane Wale Hai’
PM: What is your stand on Land acquisition bill?
Kaur : Modi government has been amending number of clauses in the bill which they have drafted in parliament. In the name of development government has grabbed the land of farmers, 63% of population of the country is still based on agriculture. If they ruined soil steadily, how we will survive in future. Reform land bill has many drawbacks
PM: Why the party lost in West Bengal?
Kaur : In West Bengal, while we were in power our 70% vote comes out from rural areas , party has asked soil/land from farmers to settle down industry at rural zone of West Bengal, but farmers could not agree to sign accord unfortunately the programme was called off. But our leaders have failed to convince them. Then opposition got successful to influence the population. It was the major cause of our failure in the last assembly election.
