Modi government following UPA’s worst policies: Activists

New Delhi,  (IANS) Activists and academics on Sunday came out strongly against the Narendra Modi government, accusing it of following the worst policies of the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government.

“The media has been giving a view that everything is fine and the economy is looking up which is not true,” Jayati Ghosh, academic and professor of economics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, said at an event here.

“There has been significant improvement in inflation, but it is the decline in prices of global crude prices which has done it and not the government,” Ghosh said.

“This government is following the worst policies of the previous government.”

Ghosh accused the government of functioning without a human face.

“They have reduced spending in all social sector schemes and there is going to be massive chaos in this sector soon,” she said.

Noted lawyer and human rights activist Vrinda Grover said terms of citizenship were being altered very fast.

“In the last government, there was a rights-based approach which has now been done away with and something else is occupying centre-stage,” she said.

“People who have served in Gujarat and owe individual loyalty are being brought in the central government,” she claimed.

Activist and former journalist John Dayal said that though communalism had existed in India since long, in this regime, there was “arrogance” which was dangerous for the country.
