Why I’ll vote for Shri Narendra Modi, this time?

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 10th April 2014

Today we have 3 choices for General Election 2014:

1. Shri Rahul Gandhi led Congress

Bloody Congressi dynastic leaders and sycophants lynched us for 6 decades. I’m deeply pained. Anguished. Helpless. They used all possible tricks to retain the power. They killed Gandhi. They allowed killing of Bhagat Singh. They destroyed Savarkar. They killed Netaji. They killed Shastriji, Patel. They killed all those opposed them. Congressi are no lesser than the early barbaric invaders. They are even worse than colonist British. MK Gandhi cheated us. He is father of Congress and not nation.

And corruption is other story. They destroyed all institutions. Institutionalized corruption. Allowed only sycophants. Meritorious are deprived of any space. Meritocracy is taken over by sycophancy.

You can count scams for each alphabet from A to Z.

2. Shri Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadami Party

He started with Baba Ramdev’s support. Used RSS cadre to get attention initially. Then used Anna Hazare to get national limelight. Media helped IAC campaign to achieve popularity. Then he ditched Anna too. Formed political party. Said I’ll not take support from any political party on oath of own children. Then took you-turn and formed Delhi govt with Congress support. After forming govt he offered free water to those who has water connection. Which doesn’t real needy poor inhabitants, who doesn’t even have water connection. He offered free electricity for 4 months, why because there are national elections in 4 months time. He said don’t pay any pending electricity bills, while doing injustice to who regularly pay their dues. He then resigned over so hypothetical problem.  He used to say Corruption is biggest problem, now he says Communalism is biggest problem. Today he is fighting against Modi because corruptions isn’t a challenge anymore. Hence Sonia and all bigwigs of Congress go unopposed. His founding members are questioning his autocratic behavior and he don’t want to answer.

This guy took more u-turns than any politician in the world. Worst than congress.

3. Shri Narendra Modi led Bharatiya Janata Party

Led Gujarat success story for over a decade. Came clean on charges of communalism. Proved that he can lead the country. He gives us hope. He doesn’t talk about religion, caste, region. He talks only about development. He is asking for 60 months. People said he won’t get allies. All allies are leaving him. Well all proved wrong. He attracted more allies than BJP had before him. He has consolidated and continues to consolidate all pro-development citizens. In whole campaign he did not invoke religion to seek votes. While Shmt Sonia Gandhi, principal opponent, is neck deep in seeking communal consolidation.

My verdict:

Shri Narendra Modi must be given a chance; as he has proven track record and vision for development.

Ab ki Baar Modi Sarkar!! Sadda Haq!!

Loksabha statistics: Electoral and MPs

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 22nd March 2014

The dipper I analyze the more I realize CONGRESS led by Shri Nehru, Shmt Indira, Shri Rajiv Gandhi, Shmt Sonia Gandhi as well as BJP led by Shri Vajpayee and Shri Advani are party to power centralization.


Does it not matter how many voters an MP represents? Has power decentralization stopped?

What is ideal MP to voter ratio? Is it worthless?

Jai Bharat!

Wah re wah democracy

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 15th February 2014

Muslim power brokers:

As per this report: The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is preparing advisory for muslims for defeating BJP and allies in all 543 Loksabha seats for General Election 2014.

The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is currently preparing an extensive advisory to guide Muslim voters across most of the Lok Sabha’s 543 constituencies. It will be released before the next elections to help Muslim voters decide the best way to utilise their vote in defeating the BJP and its allies. Jamaat volunteers and its affiliate outfits, such as its student, women and youth wings, would be pressed into disseminating the message among Muslims so that “secular” candidates may enter the Lok Sabha.

Are Muslims herds that they would forsake their freedom to choose by following such divisive and destructive guidelines?

Hindu Power Brokers:

And as per this reportSubramanian Swamy says Hindus must vote enmasse for BJP for General Election 2014.

“It is time Hindus unanimously cast their votes to save India and Hinduism. Muslims and Christians unitedly cast their votes to candidates fielded and approved by their respective clergies. Time has come for the Hindus to vote for candidates who openly declare that they would protect Sanatana Dharma and Indian nationalism,”

And these are the people who swear by constitution. Shame.

I, an free Hindu, do not need any sermon to chose my representative. If tomorrow APJ Kalam is candidate will I chose anyone else?

And now agree to the note by Sameer Panje
“the government is a natural magnet for all kinds of power brokers. And the power brokers of organised religion are the worst of the lot”

I will work my life to keep free men free.

Jai Bharat!

Arvind Kejrival is lying in case of Ugandan women urine test for drugs

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 21st January 2014

Arvind Kejriwal said that urine sample isn’t enough to testify for drugs there must have been a blood test. Watch the following video from 8:50 onward to hear the lie.

Law Minister Somnath Bharti forcefully acquired urine sample from Ugandan women to conduct drug test. I did a simple internet search to find more about drugs testing and found resources from drug foundation NZ.

Urine can detect drugs from further back in time than blood test.

Here is the time chart found on wiki.

Approx values of drug detection period

Approx values of drug detection period

I must say Rajdeep Sardesai was ill-prepared while interviewing AK and hence fooled the viewers.

Come on Arvind sir you are CM you have to be prepared to answer such questions. And most importantly your objective shouldn’t be to shield the culprits. You should work to protect citizen and their rights.

I do not support this unilateral action by a minister (though his motive was to resolve the issue) because tomorrow this might become a precedent and the evil would take advantage. Citizens would be persecuted. So let’s stick to some process where probity and accountability can be verified.

Also I don’t support inspector raj. Unless there is written complaint against someone police or govt should not enter private places.

Jai Bharat!

FTI’s Policy Competition: The Results (and seven prizes)

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 27th April 2013

Date of Announcement: 27 April 2013


The Freedom Team of India’s policy competition, announced on 15 November 2012, attracted over 400 registrants. A total of 20 entries were received. One competitor had applied to join FTI. Although he has since left, he is not an Indian citizen hence ineligible for a cash prize.

General comment on quality of entries received

The rules specified that “FTI may decide not to award prizes on policy topics in which no entry of a minimum acceptable standard is received”. This provision was not expected to be used since FTI was hoping for a very strong field. It turns out that many competitors did not use the mandatory competition template (which provides a systematic framework for analysis). Many of those who used the template didn’t demonstrate basic diligence and evidence-based policy thinking, hence failed to meet a minimum standard.

FTI doesn’t blame this unfortunate state of affairs on the participants, but on the lack of even a single good school of Governance and Public Policy in India. Policy makers in India are therefore left to their own devices, leading to extremely poor public policy. It is our hope that this deplorable state of affairs will be addressed through the ongoing efforts of the Freedom Team of India (which has also recently launched the Sone Ki Chidiya Federation to bring about total reforms). competition participants are encouraged to join the Federation to support good governance in India. They are also encouraged to understand the slides presented at the Governance Reforms Conference at Indian Institute of Public Administration recently.

Seven participants are being acknowledged and/or awarded prizes

Despite the low average standard of policy entries, three did meet a minimum standard (although much was still left to be desired – e.g. proof of assertions made).

One of these policies has been judged to be of sufficiently high standard (despite limitations) to act as a minimum benchmark for future policy design in India. This policy is being awarded the overall best prize of Rs.1 lakh.

The remaining two (out of the three that met the minimum standard) were in the same policy area (school education), so only will get the prize of Rs.20,000 and the second is being acknowledged through a consolation prize. (Although there was no provision for consolation prizes in the Rules, the Board of Directors of FTI has decided to acknowledge/ award five small additional prizes to encourage the participants.)

The Results

The policy entries

FTI has previously published the policy entries without disclosing participant names. The entires are now being published with participant names (without addresses and other private details) here.

Disclaimer: Awarding a prize to a policy does not bind FTI in any way to its recommendations. FTI continues to develop world-best policies for India through its own extensive analysis and wide discussions with the community.

1) First (and overall best) prize: Rs.1 lakh

The first prize goes to Supratim Guha and Amudavalli Kannan (C17: Policy No. 17: Water (including rivers policy and potable water supplies).

Title of competition entry: River-Basin Management

Affiliation: Undergraduate Law Students at Gujarat National Law University

FTI believes that this policy is good enough to act as a minimum benchmark for all policies made in India. Much better policies can be designed with due diligence and effort. However, currently no actual public policy in India even meets this minimum benchmark. The Planning Commission spends HUNDREDS of crores of rupees on consultants, only to make truly bad policies. If India were to follow the diligence and effort put in by Supratim Guha and Amudavalli Kannan in such a short time, it could achieve wonders with the resources currently spent (wasted) on policy making.

Download a PDF version of the Guha-Kannan First Prize winning policy below (Word version here). Please also pass on this link as widely as you can. Well done, Guha and Kannan.

2) Prize for best policy on school education: Rs.20,000

The only other policy area in which a minimum standard was met was school education. The prize in this policy area goes to Poorvaja Prakash and Radhika Maloo. (C13: Policy area no. 12: School education (including early childhood education)). Download this prize winning entry here (Word | PDF).

Title of competition entry: Education For Learning

Affiliation: Poorvaja works in Teach For India, Radhika works in IPE Global Consulting

3) Two consolation prizes of Rs. 3,000 each

The following competitors are being awarded Rs. 3,000 each as a consolation prize for their effort.

Padma Karri (C12/ 11_Padma_karri.doc – download from zip file here)

Avi Aggarwal (C09/ 2_aviaggarwal.doc – download from zip file here)

4) Three encouragement prizes

The following two are being awarded Rs. 1,000 each as encouragement prize.

Akriti Bhatia: C19/ 16_Akriti Bhatia.doc – download from zip file here)

Rahul Gupta (C20/ 2_rahulgupta.doc – download from zip file here)

FTI also wishes to encourage the following competitor. He is not a citizen of India, so will not receive any cash prize. But well done:

Sandeep Datir (C04/ health policy.doc – download from zip file here)

Congratulations to everyone!

The Freedom Team of India congratulates not just the prize winners but all contestants – for putting in the time and effort to think about public policy. This is a highly neglected area of thought and study in India, and the results of such neglect are self-evident to anyone who lives in India. Even “reform” movements are led by people who have not the slightest clue about good public policy.

Through the efforts of Freedom Team of India, its supporters, and competition participants we hope that India will finally arrive at good policies. We hope that all competitors learnt something useful from the competition – regardless of whether they won a prize. We wish them the very best in their future plans in the field of public policy.

We invite you to work together with us to ensure better public policy in India through world-best governance and policy frameworks.

Now it is your turn to support this effort

FTI is a fledgling effort that is trying to reform India’s deplorable governance. We need every Indian’s support. If you think that FTI is on the right track, please support FTI actively through cash contributions and voluntary work. Those who wish to lead India should join the Freedom Team. Those who wish to India to achieve genuine reforms should participate in the Sone Ki Chidiya Total Reform Movement by joining the Sone Ki Chidiya Federation – which has been created by FTI as a platform for all reformers and reform organisations in India to come together.

FTI wishes to thank those who contributed prize money for this competition. We will soon be in touch with them with proposals to best use the remaining contributed prize money for preparing good public policy documents for India.

Note: Cheques to prize winners

Cheques to prize winners will be mailed out to the addresses they have provided, in the next 30 days. Should you not receive your prize by then, please contact Supratim Basu at xsupratim@gmail.com and Ajay Anand at ajayanand7@gmail.com.

Board of Directors, Freedom Team of India

जय भारत!
