Some important statistics about Third World India to highlight at the Horasis conference
Lok has suggested a few statistics to highlight (I’ve incorporated his statistics in this post). Independently I have also been keeping tab on a number of indicators. I will use as many of these indicators as possible during the QA session to highlight the utter bankruptcy of the Modi government (or any other government, such as UPA, etc.).
FDI – one eighth of what China has got to date
GDP – Questionable statistics, but very poor performance compared with China’s
Governance – the most corrupt in Asian pacific region.
Funding for core functions is a joke. The budget for justice delivery and administration is 1000 crores. The entire budget for law enforcement is 75,000 crores. But the budget for National Rural Employment Guarantee is 48,000 Cr. That is just one of hundreds of welfare schemes. Recently they mindlessly waived off farmer loans worth over 10 billion dollars.
India ranks on bottom on every socio-economic-political measure of human prosperity such as education, health, freedom of speech, ease of doing business.
Less than 2% of the country pays incomes taxes. As compared to 55% in Switzerland and 48% in United States.
Government of India throws out freebies to their vote banks: free power, free loans, free this, free that. Freebies have made Indians dishonest, lazy and immoral.
