So far, the BJP did go forward with the unpopular move of raising railway fares to make Indian Railways financially solvent, and Modi himself has went about instilling a new work culture in the bureaucracy. 12 hour work days and regular progress briefings (accountability) are the new norm for bureaucrats. Modi has also made headway in improving relations with Pakisan, and he is considered a dynamic and decisive leader by his international peers.

It'll take 2-3 years before one can give the BJP parliament an objective report card. Their first budget wasn't as bold as some had wished, and it'll take a couple of years to see if Modi and the BJP parliament can effectively implement their vision. It looks like the BJP has opted for incremental change rather than upturning everything overnight.
I would imagine raising railway fares would do a lot in making him unpopular with the masses. How is that?

I'm fairly certain that anyone who uses rail transportation doesn't like fare hikes.

Default Modiís Nepal Visit: Indiaís Initiative to Cultivate Better Relations in Its Neighborho

India and Nepal have always been good friends though relations between the two soured over a last decade or so. However, Modi govt is keen to improve the situation and is willing to go the extra mile to get Nepal on board.

I think Modi is doing a great job considering the mess left by the previous gov't. He is engaging India's immediate neighbors first and foremost with great priority due to security issues. As for FDI in multi brand retail, there are pro's and con's associated with that. The bulk of store owners are small shopkeepers. Bringing in such corporations may do great harm to their livelihood. I think Modi is taking his time and considering all options. Some areas need to be rushed more than others. As for security, he placed an experienced guy to manage their NSA.


Everyone talks about food prices, economics, etc which are all very important but without security, it won't go anywhere. You will always be held hostage by outside forces unless you nip it asap.


Don't forget the previous ruling party had almost 13 yrs to do what it wanted.

India to Become Single Market for First Time on Modi Tax U-Turn - Bloomberg

More reforms like this are needed to get India's economy rolling again. Granted, Modi and the rest of the BJP likely opposed tax reform in the past for the sake of politicking. The BJP has an opportunity here, and they don't seem keen on squandering it. The myriad of tax laws make it hard to conduct business across state lines for small and mid-sized firms.

The problem with India's laws is that they inherited the law system from British, then did barely anything to carry that progress forward. There is so much red tape and burecracy, it makes doing business a nightmare. However, I feel this was done on purpose to aid corrupt burecrats!

His ideas and visions are great, but implementing them isn't an easy task. Voting someone else than Modi won't change that.
