Sky high expectations for Modi's second term
"Narendra Modi begins, his second term office this week after a landslide election win Justice sing discusses, what he must do to live up to the hopes of the armies of young people voted for him with Amy Kasmin. And Stephanie Finley we begin with the voice of one young supporter. The world should know that India has finally woken up. We are not sleeping anymore. And now we know what a right, who is the right person who is good for India. We don't think on communal basis anymore. We don't vote on the basis of costs on the basis of religion now, we would for the wlob India for development we vote for India and not a particular party who has always ruled India like congress, Amy, the sheer scale of his victory has surprised many. What is your assessment of Mr. Moody's triumph? Look, I think the scale of Modi's victory is down to really multiple factors. First of all the opposition was really an utter disarray. I don't think the congress party has really truly recovered from the battering that it received in two thousand fourteen I think, in terms of leadership. They didn't have a very clear electoral strategy. They were completely destroyed. Other parties were factionalized. So the opposition did not offer any kind of convincing alternative to Mr. moody, on the other hand, you had the BJP, Mr. Modi's party, and then crew ably well, organized, highly tuned, and deeply resourced political machine. They had a great product and Mr. Modi, he's a charismatic strong leader highly conscious of his image. And then behind him. He had this incredible machine with all its resources, Mr. Modi's government over the last five years had started a lot of social welfare, schemes they estimate that two hundred and twenty million people benefited from one Mody government scheme or another, this included things like distribution of gas, cylinders to people who had previously been cooking, highly polluting, cow, patties, or would door charcoal. They opened. Rnc accounts for millions of people they delivered toilets or funding for people to build toilets. There was funding for building low cost housing. Other governments have also had a lot of schemes in the past, but these were probably delivered more efficiently. But then the BJP party machinery was absolutely astute in maintaining contact with all of those who benefited from any kind of government program, and then the party with its machinery, reminding people who delivered these benefits to them and overall, Mr. Modi, just really projecting himself as the confidence strong decisive, and really one and only leader for India against a weak and fragmented. An unconvincing position led to essentially a massive landslide that we've seen really a historic verdict the first time in decades that any leader has. Two consecutive single party majorities on their own. Stephanie, you were at the BJP headquarters on the day election results came out. Did you get a sense that people's expectations from Mr. moody will be even higher this time? So the mood was just euphoric at the headquarters thousands of people had come they were dancing playing music, and they were thrilled to be part of what they saw as a historic moment for mister Mody. And also for India in there is Mr. moody, Ken deliver what the congress has failed to deliver in India for so many years, and many people repeated the line to me that it's only Mr. Mody that can take India from developing to developed country. Most young people were very confident that Mr. Modi could deliver on his promise to create jobs, and they said that Mr. moody gave them the motivation to get. Job, not necessarily that he would create government jobs for them. But they did expect that Mr. Mody would create a booming business environment that would take India into the future and them along with it. So Amy huge expectations. Tell us water the key challenges before him, the astonishing thing really about this election. What came as a surprise to many as the fact that in two thousand fourteen Mr. Mody had campaigned on a promise of reviving economic growth, creating millions of new jobs to absorb the young people in the workplace. In fact, Modi's track record on the economy is pretty patchy. And right now, there is actually a lot that needs to be dealt with India's economic growth is slowing down in the last quarter for which we have the data. It was six point six percent. There are some people who think the next quarter could be even slower that some growth may come in under six percent. So growth is really full touring and growth is critical because it's with growth that you get jobs, which are so badly needed. There's also serious issues in the financial sector these things called non banking financial companies. They're not really banks. But they provide a lot of consumer credit, which is driving demand and keeping growth going, but many of them are very, very shaky. One is already collapsed, if others collapsed, it will have an impact on the banking system because around five percent of all Bank lending is to these nonbank financial companies. The government's finances are also not in very great shape. The government wants to try to step up spending to try to revive growth. But in fact, they don't really have the fiscal space to do so tax collections of come in, well below expectations, and their plans for accelerated growth will be hard to meet given the level of tax collection. So there's a lot of stored up trouble. Meanwhile, private companies haven't really been investing in the Indian economy either throughout the whole term of the Modi government, and the banking system also has still weighed down with heavy non-performing loans. The question is really, what is the Modi government planning to do about these problems, because we haven't seen any clear indications of how they plan to tackle these issues how much they feel the urgency of the situation, Mr. Modi's foreign policy is considered one of the main achievements of his previous tenure, what are the issues confronting Mr. moody on foreign policy, and trade fronts, Mr. Modena's reached out to leaders across the globe. He's tried to avoid taking sides in some of the rifts that have arisen in the international system. Particularly rising tensions with the US and China. He's reached out to. Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's reached out to Trump. He's reached out to Japan's Shinzo obey. His tried to indicate India's willingness to be friends with everyone. I think I see a few challenges ahead, though, under Trump. America is really forcing countries into hard choices. For example, India has traditionally good relations with Iran, but the US has pressured India and other countries to stop all their energy purchases from Iran, because the US wants to put the squeeze in Iran. The US for longtime been rather tolerant of some of India's economic policies that make it tough for American companies to do business in India, and are seen as favoring Indian companies in the past, the US was willing to tolerate some of that from India because they thought India's a democracy. We want to encourage India to rise and grow strong economically so that it can serve. Some kind of regional counterweight to China, but under Trump, it seems like trade is everything and Trump will be more concerned about a twenty billion dollar trade imbalance with India than the long term, strategic interests of a stronger India. So the US is putting a lot of pressure on India. And this is a kind of a friction point, and generally, I think India is going to find the US is pressuring India to take sides and it's likely to get tough with India, Hindu nationalist vision of India has often clashed with secularism enshrined in India's constitution often during the campaigning heard that the election, this time was about the soul of India. Do you see any serious threat to India's diversity, this time around the idea that defined the first years of India in the decades after its independence, really as are related by Mahatma gone? Bundy and then his political heir job, Lal Nehru was that India was by its nature, a diverse pluralistic, multifaith society. The state was to be secular in the sense of not having a religious identity and not preferring. One community over another alongside that idea husband, another idea championed by the RSS formed in one thousand nine hundred five that India is primarily a Hindu country, it is clear that the BJP has been heavily influenced by this second ideology. In fact, the BJP was formed by the RSS to promote these ideas and carry this message into the political sphere. The election campaign, had a lot of costal anti-muslim overtones for many in the BJP one of the. Mandates for the BJP who's been elected to the parliament is someone who has actually been criminally charged with involvement of a bombing of a Muslim burial grounds where at least six people, including a young child were killed many were quite shocked that the BJP would put up such a person who still awaiting formal trial in connection with this case in the wake of his landslide reelection victory. Mr. moody did make a speech where he talked about. We want to win over the trust of minorities of this country. We want to govern for all, but I think given the divisiveness of the campaign while Mr. Modena's clearly made the right noise. You know, these conciliatory comments about winning Muslims trust, I think it will take more than one speech to reassure minorities, that they will be protected, and I think that it will be the actions. Finally that will speak louder. Than a few words. That was Justice. Sing took it to Amy Kasmin how South Asia bureau chief, Stephanie Finley, South Asia. Correspondent in Delhi?

"mr. mody" Discussed on Knowledge@Wharton
"So there's some there's a lot of the biggest problem, he faces right now in terms of the total economy, is the slump in private investment, or at least a Nemec growth in private investment. And that's part large part to, to the very high debt loads of many Indian companies, they're in big process of deleveraging, the banks, a lot of the banks, particularly the public sector, banks are weak. So he would have to undertake a big recapitalization of the banks and we're really free up that capital and make private investment roar. Again, that also would be difficult for him. But it's also Marshall interesting that the fact. For the last couple of years, it has been reported in talked about about, how India is, is has this potential is such of this growth, economy moving forward. And I think part of that it links to Mr. Mody, maybe his reelection this belief that, that, that is where India is headed. So would we potentially have the opportunity to see some greater investment coming in from companies in the United States over the next few years? Yes. If, if research also uses this opportunity to make dramatic. India, more tractive place to invest. Moti credit for India having greatly improved its standing in the world. Bank's he's of doing business index over the last five years, you know, it's, it's gone from hundred plus two seventy seven's on on that list. But there are still talk to any business personal. It's still one of the most complicated difficult places to do business in. So there would have to be very substantial further liberalizing, the investment environment and the loss opportunity, there was particularly painful, when you consider that given what's happening in China, given the US China trae conflicts, the ways, which Mergen companies that have invested heavily in China over the last thirty years are now looking for other places to put their investment to put their supply chains. India could benefit enormously from that new. But it's going to need to move his break recipe to make that possible. I'm glad you brought it up Marshall the wondering in the little time. We have left to talk about. You know why what will the new moody administrations relationships be with the neat bits, neighbors, and Saudi especially Pakistan, and what will be some of the implications for security? Also, the relationship with China is very critical. What would you think with happen there? We'll let me let me respond first by by pointing out that, you know, the single most important thing. Prime minister motive can do to enable India's strong participation in the international system in particular a, a more more leverage and his relationships with India's neighbors would be to improve the economy and to get economic. Growth backup. In fact, it should be higher than the seven seven and a half percent. It's been less years. And although it's not at that point, now it should be eight or nine percent or ten percent even bracket. So India's relations with its all all of its neighbors, regional neighbors in South Asia, accepting Pucca, STAN, you know are passable there? Okay there, but there are constraints on in each of those relationships and they'll basically depend on the character of the regime in that country. Whether in Bangladesh, Lawrence lung on the mold dies or Nepal for that matter the big problem, of course, the big challenges of Bacchus Todd. And you note that practically at the same moment that prime minister Imran Khan of Pucca STAN publicly, congratulated, Mr. Mody on his victory the puck. Stan. Military launched a ballistic missile. Sending a very clear message. We, we see what's going on. Remember who we are? Pakistan has not admitted to India's preeminence, in the subcontinent when one cannot for see the day when they will you only way to Ulta really change that over time for India to have such a preponderance of power in the region. Number one, number two. The same time to make to make it clear to Pakistan is that they would benefit from from greater integration with a really dynamic economy. There have been the two parties have been on Willingham both sides, both ways to, to improve its relationship unable to so I foresee Pakistan continuing to be a real challenge for prime minister Modi. He may well reach out in the coming days Mondays coming months to some kind of olive branch to, to puck estan. But really only as a way to, to quiet things down for a while, and whatever. Relationship China, which, as you know, of course, also please Innova bigly, a role in shaping the relationship at Pakistan. Well, we've seen premise Mody over the last two years, kind of make nice with China right after the doklam incident in the high Himalayas where the two countries nearly came to blows in the summer of twenty seventeen I guess it is. So he realizes he needs to keep a balance which I used to keep things from getting to shaky, and I think the she appreciates and pink has had the same objective during the same this time period. But the rivalry is still very intensive will continue again. The best thing that prime minister Mody can do to improve the India's leverage vis-a-vis China is to improve in to improve India's economy. I think what I'm trying to say. In general, is that well, some people looked to prime minister me to be more sort of, on the international stage having gotten this enormous mandate. Ultimately, I think he will be stylistically. He's been that way is operated that way on international stage, ever since he came to power, but I think alternately the test is going to be what, what can you do to make India and is coming more vibrant and more successful, speaking, the Konami does really interesting? Essay recently published in the New York Times, which suggested that mister Moody's economic policies are less like those of Ronald Reagan, and more. Like those Bernie Sanders. Really? Exactly. The expect that Mr. Moody's, two point two government will continue with the populist largest of will that go in other directions are over. Well, that's the sixty four million rupee question. I mean it's. We all expected him to be a consistent of powerful reformer back in twenty fourteen. It didn't pan out and guess what he turned in a more populous direction because in Indiana, which is point. And yeah, if you if you wanna get reelected, that's the expectation voters have of you, you have to meet that expectation of populace programs. And of course, he did that having criticized the, the previous Congress-led government for handing out pushing money into airplanes, dropping over the farm sector. He's, he's done exactly the same in the last year to try to quiet the agrarian distress before the election. So this is the trick for Indian any Indian prime minister who wants to be truly transformative. How do you bring about the reforms that will power the Indian Konami into? Into a first world economy, eventually, certainly into a middle income substantial middle income economy, while at the same time for political reasons, having Indians feel confidence about confident about what the government is doing for them. It's a very delicate and difficult transition that has to be made and one can only hope that down with this so empowered that prime minister Mody will feel able to, to try that. So then does part of that scenario that you lay out Marshall does does part of that play out with building future relations with the United States. Well, absolutely. And in this score, I think what we'll see is with the I I'm sure Mody will come to Washington again. You know, he was last in Washington for a summit with president in June of twenty seventeen. He will come. And the hug, and, and shake, well, at least for motorcycle even warmer, they will see the President Trump and prime minister, you'll see each other, you know, like minded or at least like in, in empowered people, but although there big differences, as well. I think that Mody has been absolutely convinced that India's relationship with the United States is critically important for India. President Trump has clearly put a lot of stock in the relationship and has moved at a number of directions to, to ensure a continues to develop, although not so much on the economic front. I think prime minister me will be pushing for feeling to deal with some of those economic issues, particularly on trade, but on the security front. The relationship continues to go closer. I think there's been some nervousness on the inside about whether President Trump would be consistent in his hitherto positive approach to India. Hopefully they can now feel more confident about that. Marshall, what would be your advice to investors who are considering investing, India, what opportunities should explore? And what are the biggest risks that they should watch out for? Well, you know, the easiest of these. The least challenging path for investment in again, that was to is to respond to this burgeoning middle-class, which as is very aspirational. And that's basically this aspiring near middle class or middle class. It is voting for from Odeon many, many areas country because that the consumer sector is a sector that is least affected by government regulation of intrusion. And those you've seen in the last two or three years, the big US investments in India, Europe by US companies in India have all been in the consumer sector. That's, that's the surest way to get a piece of the Indian economy and of its growth trajectory without getting hobbled by regulation. And I think given that the motive government turned and more protectionist directions over. It's the last two years, we can hope that the prime minister will pull back from some of that and begin to open up the rest of them. He wanted people to come and make an companies to come and make an India if he really wants to do that. He's got to reverse course and again, liberalize that the investment environment in which case, then it becomes possible for some of American and other companies that are making in China and Vietnam. And they'll swear to come and make an Indio Marshall, great to have your insight on the show today. Thank you, sir. My pleasure. Thank you both. Thank marshall. Bouton McColl, great to see you again.

Repeat performance: Indias election
"India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi looks at for a commanding victory in the country's election. Results are confirmed his ruling party looks likely to once again have enough seats to form a government on its own. The election was a massive undertaking supporters of Mr. Modise RTA, junior party, were among campaigners of all stripes. Trying to capture India's nine hundred million registered voters. After six weeks of staggered voting across the country. Mr. moody himself went on a meditation retreat apparently with lots of supporters in tow. He posted pictures and videos on social media from temple in the Himalayas. Now, he looks at to rejoin the noisy fray of Indian politics with a renewed mandate. Will the results are clear enough that Narendra Modi and his BJP the party have won an enormous victory today a victory to match his victory of five years ago. Alex Ravelli is India correspondent for the economist based in Delhi with uncanny similarity in terms of the net numbers, the actual results are different. He lost support in some places, but he gained it back in equal measure and other places. It means that he's just won a re election, a single party re election of a kind that no one has one in India before there's a tremendous amount of political power. It is disposable now. And if those results are confirmed, is should we view that as a sort of stamp of approval on, on Mr. Modi's first term, you know, you could take this as a as a stamp of approval on Mr. Mody as a leader? There's no doubt about that. It's harder to sit to call it a judgment on the first term since what? Campaigned on in the run-up to the voting was quite radically different than what he campaigned on in two thousand fourteen and indeed than what he delivered during his five years in office. But whatever the content of the statement, you can say, a great many Indian voters are happy to trust the future of the government to Mr. Mody. So what do you mean by that? What did he campaign on what to the instead deliver? Well, it's interesting, the first time round, if you look at all the slogans in two thousand fourteen it was mainly about development. There is an undertone of Hindu pride, but for the most part, it was about cleaning up government removing corruption of the kind that had plagued the previous government's last two years in office and building building building. There was a sort of unspoken idea that India could grow like China has grown and the slogan that was heard most often in the day of that victory was good times are coming at meant economic good times. Now the past five years, have brought far less. Good happy, economic news than Indians, would one in particular in areas like manufacturing jobs, the motive really staked earlier campaign on, so this time round in two thousand nineteen there was almost no discussion of that. There were vague bromides about development, but for the most part, Mr. Mody and his surrogates chose not to talk about what the economy might do or has done instead to talk about who they are, and who their enemies are and very, very pure red meat so to speak. Nationalism seems to have been the winning ticket for this campaign. You mentioned nationalism Hindu nationalism has played a huge part in this election rights. I mean, how much do you see that playing into into the government with this new mandate? It's an interesting question there's still some space between the concepts of nationalism and Hindu nationalism. Let's suppose nationalism means flag-waving identifying the leader with the armed forces being proud to be an Indian Hindu, nationalism means asserting this. Specific sectarian character overall the offices of government. It's a more controversial approach, and Mr. Modi is used it sparingly usually putting it to his deputies to insist that India is more Hindu than Muslim or the belonging to any other minority and it's played very well in some quarters, whereas for the national press and his own personal, prestige, Mr. Mody prefers to stick to India first nationalism. Well, what about more widely in the region? How will Bangladesh and Pakistan to predominantly Muslim countries respond to this victim if no doubt that the leaders of these countries will phone in their congratulations to Mr. Mody? It's hard to know what they might have wished as an outcome for this election. But there's some comfort and doing business with the same government in New Delhi. But it's notable where relations in particular with both Pakistan and Bangladesh concern that a lot of the Hindu, nationalist themes that Mr. moody is rates on the. Campaign trail, nationalist, Hindu, nationalist end up taking quite sharp pointy aimed at those neighbors on the one hand using series of aerial skirmishes with Pakistan, as a as a calling card for his strongman credentials and on the other hand is a very, very major citizenship issue unfurling in the eastern part of India where the idea that Bangaladeshi infiltrators government calls them are screwing up the demographics, making them less Hindu in particular has has become a sticking point in a lot of those precincts. And that's something that, that is actually quite difficult for the Indian government to talk to the bungalow. She government about. And what about India's opposition parties will everyone feel chasing? What will they do? Now, the congress party if you measured against it's two thousand fourteen results which were incredibly dismal as done a little bit less badly. Still done terribly BJP. It's done. Almost exactly the same which is to say. Efficiently. Well, and some third parties, fared better, others, fared worse. One question people are asking is, how does the congress react to this? Does it collapse in shame, does its leadership change various problems imagining any of those outcomes. But at this point, it's, it's really anybody's guess how the congress in particular react. And what about the markets and investors? How how will they take this JP victory, will the markets are uniformly happy about this, and they have been since Sunday nights exit polls were made public. They were pretty cheerful before that even and today, the, the most watched market index hit a new record the sex now of forty thousand points for the first time. And in one by where the trader said, it's, it's happy not, not so much at this point, because people expect real structural reforms from a Modi government, very unclear whether they're even interested in delivering those, but because there's an assurance that we know what the government is like going. Forward. It won't be fractured. It won't be surprising. The worst it can be as what we just had for the past five years. Alex, thank you very much for joining us.
Modis operandi: Indias enormous election
"The biggest democratic exercise on earth, India's general election, the scale of it is staggering some nine hundred million people began voting last week at a million polling stations the process will continue until the twenty third of may. The election is the first since Rendra Mody, the leader of the Barth the junk party was sworn in as prime minister of India. He switched to power in two thousand fourteen with an inclusive. Message promising jobs and progress. His focus on Hindu unity majority faith in India. Put an end to seven decades of secularist politics since then though his popularity has waned somewhat economic growth is disappointing unemployment is relatively high. But the recent boiling over of long standing tensions with neighboring Pakistan has revitalized Mr. Modi's bid for reelection. So the election is as -ticipant it'd the biggest in the world ever, Alex trolley, India correspondent with the economist based in Delhi, India's largest means the world's largest you hear that an estimated nine hundred million Indians are eligible to vote and Indians ten devoted relatively high rates between sixty and eighty percent host states more than one in nine humans is eligible to vote and then the rigmarole of actually conducting elections in country as sprawling and in some ways challenges this one means that pulling takes a long time. So tell us about the render Mody so Narendra Modi has changed Indian politics indelibly, and that's something that we could have said even before the two thousand fourteen general election, India's last one of the most striking ways, formerly as that. He presents himself as something like a presidential candidate the party that he leads party John party or J P, really. Rides on his coattails Audie m accord, but he speaks forcefully up got got a bit the head. But was our up. What he what he projects the image of a strong, man, perhaps very virtuous, man. Also, a man with a hopeful attitude about the future about India's greatness, and it's claiming its rightful role in the world now. Notably the campaign. He ran in two thousand fourteen was much more focused on India's booming economy or Connie that everyone felt should be booming harder. This time round. He's voting rather. He's asking voters to choose him much more in the basis of his nationalist credentials is ability to protect India, from enemies, foreign enemies, internal enemies. It's in many ways a darker campaign. No less contentious. So on that note that how big a part will Pakistan play as an election issue. We'll. Custodian is playing a very large role say an outsized role in this election because of something that began in February and the middle of February. There was a terrorist bombing Indian-administered Kashmir that was horribly successful killed forty Indian soldiers paramilitary forces and came as a real blow to the sense of the nation. No thirteen days later, Mr. moody, ordered airstrikes and it's unclear what damage they did. But Pakistan responded with airstrikes of its own. And there was a dog fight. And India was able to walk away from this kind of mixed military exchange saying that Mr. moti had sought and found vengeance for the loss of those forty soldiers. And that this proves that his is the government that will defend against Pakistan. So every day since then on the campaign trail from not only his BJP, but from the other parties as well, you're hearing boxed on Pakistan. Pakistan, as if as if India box on relationships were the most important of all matters facing the Indian voter strange in part because the India-Pakistan relationship has been frozen solid for the past four years and has nothing apparent to do with any of the bread and butter issues that tend to determine elections in India. Well, what are the the real bread and butter issues? What do the the Indian voters really care about? Well, right now, it's different at different times. But right now, it seems like farmer distress is one of the very big things. And then from the more urban even middle class side of the electorate, it's kind of jobs crisis. What you have is not so much mass on employment of the western kind. Although the figure is record breaking for India. It's still only six point seven per cent. I believe and that may look low by western stand. Words, but what it reflects is huge disappointment on the part of the Indian workforce. It means that a lot of Indians would rather get no work at all than take up the sort of crummy jobs that are available to them. This isn't part of product of greater education and greater ambitions. And it's one of the things Mr. moody campaigned on most centrally in two thousand fourteen the number of jobs in India is barely greater now than it was then. So there seems to be plenty to challenge Mr. Mody on who are the other contenders his political threats. So the chief contender standing against Mr. Mody in the national level is Rahul Gandhi. He's the Siahaan of the Gandhi family that the narrow Gandhi family is great grandfather was the first prime minister of independent India, and he leads a party that has been badly battered in recent years, especially since Mr. moody reached prominence on the national stage. They command pathetically small number of seats in the lower house. And yet the head of that party. A young gash seeming middle aged man is the best hope in the form of personality. The opposition has against Mr. Mody, that's the congress party. And what makes them powerful would make them worth our attention at this point. Are the fact that every other party in Indy every other big party a couple of exceptions has come to see Mr. Modi's government as as an existential threat, and so they've all banded together. And what you have right now is this coalition led informally by Rahul Gandhi. But supported by every other big political party in the country. Now if that coalition can hold together, Mr. moody will really have to worry about keeping control of the government. I mean, democracy seems to be kind of always under threat, and and more. So all the time as the world's largest democracy. Do you think in the provides lessons for the rest of the world will India's examples should be inspiring? And that it's managed to maintain a democracy against extremely adverse circumstances, what was terribly impoverished nations still as mainly poor one extremely heterogenous and yet people keep voting in and especially the keep voting out leaders. They don't like so India's democracy that's worked even when it shouldn't. However, that's not to say that there isn't fragility in the Indian system and a lot of people have been concerned in the past five years that Mr. Modi's extremely effective control over all the institutions of the state might threaten democracy. Should he win power fairly one more time? So that's not to say that this current election, isn't lively and fully contested in democratic terms. But some people are afraid that this prime minister. Won't be capable of seeing the next one through so
"mr. mody" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"Street Journal and the American Enterprise Institute observing India, the largest and most successful democracy on planet earth, but they're in a democracy there always surprises. Sudden on a very good evening to you. If I follow the reporting, Mr. Mody who was a rockstar when I elected as head of the BJP, otherwise known as the Hindu nationalist party has run into voters who either disaffected or are again enticed by the congress party the other large entity in India to try another way has Modi's stumble meant that he is in trouble for his own power. Or is this the managing of a party and all the different states in India. Good evening to you. Very good evening, John. Well, I would say two quick things. The first is that Modi is still the frontrunner in elections that are due by this spring. However, he has taken a beating, and he is not as much of a frontrunner as he was when we spoke say six months ago or a year ago. Right. And this is not about the states that are ordinarily congress. This is about state said are Hindi, or at least Ben identified with the the Hindu, the nationalist party that BJP represents. So are there are there local issues that are driving this? The failure of Mr. Mody to follow through on some of the what you'd have to say utopian promises of several years pass just sorta combination of things let's just for your for your listeners. I mean, we're talking about recent state elections, and these are kind of being spoken off as the semi-final ahead of national elections right now state elections as in the United States State elections are fought party on local issues, and so it's not entirely a referendum on. Modi's government at the centre. It's not entirely a referendum on the federal government. But it does show that Modi's economic policies that have been quite populist. He who's trying to go out there and open Bank accounts will flow people installed toilets in their homes provide subsidized housing that kind of thing, you know, classic economic populism. It is not working with voters because he hasn't created job. And that is something that must be concerning him 'electricity. I want to seize on that because I've learned over the years that that is an unsolved part of India's growth, the electricity rates are capped in a modest fashion. And yet the demand is always growing, and there are blackouts or brownouts routinely has been judged because of the infrastructure, something he inherited. Well, he has not been able to solve the biggest problems. So he has been good on things. Like he has made. Sure that villages where there was no electricity earlier. Now having electricity connection. This doesn't mean that every house in the village has one. But it means that Ella Christie has reached these villages. However, the economics of Chrissy in India as you pointed out are broken and they're broken because the politicians will not allow electric companies to set rates that made select selling electricity profitable. And this is an old problem if you know dates back many years before moldy, but there was a hope when he was elected in two thousand fourteen that these are the kinds of problems that other governments had not been able to fake, but mostly would be able to fix and you know, nearly at the end of his term after four and a half years. We're finding that. While turns out, Molly wasn't able to fix them. Either. I've taken to reading the economist. This is a confession. So the economist covers India from the point of view of that was our empire. And how's it doing? I learned from the economist that there is serious damaging pollution throughout India. But in the capital Delhi the Aaron deli is damaging to lungs. They compared to how many cigarettes you'd have to smoke to absorb the air and Delhi on a bad day. And then they compared it to Beijing, which we know is a nightmare is Mody held responsible for that air. And specific to the fact that there's not been a any solution offered. John part of the problem is the politicians are not being responsible for that air. You know, I grew up in Delhi. And when I go back there now, I just I find it impossible to breed. And and part of the problem really is that over the years as India has become more prosperous, obviously, the more cars more industry, and so on similar to what we saw at Beijing at one point. There are also other environmental factors because of the Himalayas a lot of the is just trapped. But the fact is that this is a problem that the politicians are not solving in part because voters are not demanding that it'd be solved. You reported when Mody was first elected that the success of the BJP was because of the failure of congress to continue to hold its its voters to continue to hold its promises has congress improved in these last four years while we've been talking about Modi's a lack of success is is congress a new entity. No. And that's you know, in some way that has improved on the margins. For example, the congress leader Rahul Gandhi used to kind of live in this bubble of entitlement surrounded by courtiers, not ever not ever engaging with journalists, and they figured out the dock was not sustainable, so now he does press conferences regularly. So they've changed a little bit on the margins. They have not change their policies. And so essentially, you have congress that is delivering the same the same tired policies and really backing me into a corner where Mosey is also adopting some of the same populist rhetoric, but as a political entity the congress is stronger now compared to a few years ago simply because movie hasn't delivered. And so some of the tunnels. The bloom is off his rose and odd story in the economist, and it just caught my attention before I came to speak to you about Modi's challenges in the spring is. The wedding of the daughter of the rich the man who said to be the richest men in India. I hope I said correctly cash, I'm Bonnie, the headline says it he spent one hundred million dollars on his Stanford graduate daughter's wedding is this a celebration in India or is this held as a way of judging Mody as being unsuccessful to stop the plutocrats. I think for most people it's just a celebration. Incredibly wealthy, man. I think his neck was it's forty eight billion dollars. He had he flew into performed for for performance, the wedding, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry were there all kinds of everyone from Indian Bollywood. And I think most people just see this as here's a really wealthy, man. Traditionally these peop-, you know, the the wedding of a daughter is a very big occasion. No one garages him this big wedding. I mean, the only people who are making noises about this kind of, you know, own school socialist, right? That's the economist economist Maggie. Right now, last twenty seconds Mody is in momentum to be reelected or are there? Bumps ahead..

"Tons of bronze and life Patel known as the iron man of India was a unifier. The man who convinced some five hundred and fifty princely states to join the new Indian government after independence a government that enshrined multicultural vision of India. But what kind of unity does this statue represent today? Many analysts say Mr. Mody and Hindu, nationalist, supporters are recruiting Patel's legacy to claim his as one of their own Modi's party desperately needs to seize upon Patel because it has no other reverential figures from the freedom. Movement says Sumatran golly, a professor at Indiana University since Modi's election in two thousand fourteen his critics argue Hindu nationalists have used increasingly bold tactics to put Hindu, faith and culture at the core of India's identity, a trend many fear will leave minorities second class citizens. This story was reported by Jason over door and Cavada India for the monitor. Live readings of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley's gothic classic around the world are offering treat and a fresh sense of community for many of the books fans this Halloween. To celebrate the two hundred anniversary of Frankenstein more than six hundred Franken reads have been planned in forty three countries ranging from film screenings museum, exhibits and marathon, readings of the monstrous classic that is inspired everything from more than fifty movies to breakfast cereal. It goes beyond popular culture and into the book itself. And the fact that it is something to tell us about ourselves something to tell us about the ways that we engage with technology engaged with humanity and engage with each other says Mark ripple a senior program officer for the National Endowment for the humanities, which partner with the Keats. Shelley association of America to create Franken rates at the library of Congress's free Halloween event, Wednesday designated readers, including horror Meister RL Stein, award winning author Louis buyer, an actor Jon sina read ten minutes of Mary Shelley's classic. As a very complicated fable, but it's deeply embedded in all sorts of cultural professional scientific technological anxieties about progress which comes with promise and doesn't always think through the perils says Dr Susan Wolfson professor of English at Princeton University who organized a Franken read on campus.

From the monitors at a to'real board in recent weeks, the tiny Arab state of Oman has hosted Israel's prime minister Iran's foreign minister for special political affairs, the Palestinian President and a United Nations on voi- each visit was held in secret, which befits Oman's historic role as trusted go-between yet three possible outcomes. Now seem to be in the open won an Omani official said maybe it is time for Israel to be treated the same as other states in the Middle East. Two calls have emerged for a swift ceasefire in Yemen, three the Israeli sports minister Miri Regev was able to visit Abu Dhabi and sing her country's national anthem at a sports event in the heart of the world. What gives Oman its influence as a mediator? It's diplomacy. Focuses on understanding the interests of other countries rather than trying to maximize its own gains. This allows Oman to keep an open invitation to countries seeking to negotiate away out of a difficult situation. And Amman's, honest listening and genuine concern for others may be helping produce results. That's for the news.
