GDP growth of fiscal year 2017 and fiscal year 2016 former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s prediction that demonetisation will shave off 2 percentage points of India’s GDP has come true In the January-March quarter of FY16 GDP grew by 9 percent which has come down to 61 percent in the corresponding quarter this year— a near 3 percentage point difference Even the full year GDP growth has come down to 71 percent in FY17 from 8 percent in the preceding year On 25 November last year some two weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched demonetisation of Rs 500 Rs 1000 notes Singh also a former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor had said in his Parliament speech that demonetisation will cause the GDP growth to fall by 2 percent The former PM called the move as a ‘monumental mismanagement’ ‘organized loot’ and ‘legalized plunder’ Singh who is also a globally reputed economist tore into Modi’s currency ban alleging that it will cause massive job losses and economic slowdown His predictions have seemingly come true Manmohan Singh (L) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi In his UP election rally in March this year PM Modi had mocked Singh and ‘Harvard economists’ such as Amartya Sen who criticised demonetisation decision saying it takes ‘hard work’ more than ’Harvard’ to build the economy “Kya kya bole Parliament me bola gaon galliyon me jaakar chillaya Bharat barbaad ho jayega GDP 2 percent kam ho jayega koi kehta kisan barbaad fasal barbaad berozgaari aajayegiDaily ek jhoot” (What all they said: In Parliament they said; they shouted in the villages and streets that India will be ruined GDP will reduce by 2 percent [points]; they said farmers and crops will be ruined and unemployment will increase Daily one lie” – Modi at the Deoria rally (read a News18 report here) In hindsight Manmohan Singh proves to be right In the fourth quarter GDP fell to 61 percent from 8 percent from the year-ago quarter with notable slowdown in construction financing/real estate sectors which were directly impacted with the cash crunch The fall in GVA was even sharper to 56 percent in the fourth quarter from 87 percent in the Q4 period of previous year The manufacturing sector has taken a major beating with the growth slowing from 127 percent in Q4 of last year to 53 percent in the January-March period now Trade hotels and transport sector growth is down to 65 percent from 128 percent in the comparable period of last year construction sector growth down from 6 percent to a negative 37 percent and financing/insurance/real estate sector down to 22 percent from 9 percent in year-ago period What saves the day for economy is growth in agriculture which improved to 52 percent in Q4 from 15 percent in fourth quarter of last year Also government consumption expenditures at constant prices has shot up to 32 percent from mere 24 percent while private consumption growth figure has declined to 73 percent from 118 percent The gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) figures which reflect the investment activity on ground fell to a negative 21 percent in the fourth quarter from 39 percent in the comparable quarter of last year causing big concern to the economy-watchers In a presser yesterday to list Modi government’s 3-year achievements union finance minister Arun Jaitley defended the demonetisation move saying it is ‘erroneous’ to link note ban to economic slowdown But there may not be too many takers for Jaitley’s argument since the sectors which have posted sharp decline such as construction tourism and services were directly hit by the demonetisation-induced cash crunch In a note on Thursday rating agency Crisil said that Q4 GDP data confirms an economic slowdown and demonetisation is partly blamed for this “Contrary to the consensus expectation of a rise in real GDP growth – both on account of higher IIP and lower WPI in the new series – the real GDP growth for fiscal 2017 clocked 71 percent unchanged from its earlier estimate That’s due to the impact of demonetisation and the fact that the deflator in Q4 had risen sharply” said Crisil in the note There are other noted economists too who have attributed the poor show in GDP growth to the note ban The Modi government had gone to a celebratory mode when Q3 GDP numbers came in at 7 percent “Kal GDP ke aankde aagaye aur aankdon ne phir ek baar keh diya ki saari duniya me badi deshon me tez gati se badhne waala Hindustan hai Jaise aankde aaye unki jhoot ka pol khul gaya” (The GDP figures were released yesterday and according to them India is still the fastest growing major economy in the world Their lies have been exposed” said Modi in the UP rally after the release of Q3 numbers But the Q4 numbers indeed show a different picture and prove some of those “lies” to be true in hindsight In the war of words with PM Modi on demonetisation impact on GDP growth Manmohan Singh has the last laugh By: Lifestyle Desk | New Delhi | Updated: June 15 2017 7:15 pm

be on the rise Incidents of hate crime seem to be on rise particularly in the US after Donald Trump assumed presidency if the country And with orders like the Muslim travel ban people from the religious community are under constant stress and fear So to make American-Muslims welcomed and ensure that they are not alone thousands are sending hand-made cards to various mosques in the US Keeping in mind that is the holy month of Ramadan where Muslims across the world spend in fasting an NGO has started this beautiful initiative called “Sincerely Us” The heartwarming measure started by DoSomethingorg has collected over 40000 hand-made cards and letters and now they are ready to be shipped “Hate crimes against Muslim Americans have reached frightening levels We stand for religious freedom and believe Muslim Americans deserve the same respect as any other American That’s why we’re sending handmade Happy Ramadan cards to every mosque in the country as a sign of support for our Muslim American neighbors” their website reads According to the website 41287 letters of support have been made by 41003 participants and they are not accepting any more cards now However Campaign Lead Adam Garner still urges people to continue the initiative on their own to spread love and compassion Elaborating what lead to this amazing idea Garner told A Plus “When it’s Christmas you give your Christian neighbors a Merry Christmas card When it’s Hanukkah you give your Jewish neighbors a Happy Hanukkah card We thought it just made sense that when an important holiday like Ramadan happens we should do the same thing for our Muslim neighbors” He said that he is moved by the enormous response the initiative had got But what really made him feel special are the thank you mails from members of the Muslim community for doing this “We stand for religious freedom and believe Muslim Americans deserve the same respect as any other American No one should fear for their safety

Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsThe sheer audacity of the concept the lack of global precedents of outlawing in onefell swoop practically the entire circulating currency of a booming economy of this scale and size and the shock and awe it has generated have prompted many commentators to call demonetisation a breathtaking gamble And yet Prime Minister Narendra Modi isn’t a gambler To take a decision that so deeply overwhelmingly and adversely (at least in the short term) affects 125 billion people at the same time requires nerves of steel massive self-confidence and an unshakable conviction in one’s actions This isn’t the faux bravado of a punter walking into the betting zone hoping for a favourable roll of the dice Modi’s confidence the bedrock behind his insanely risky manouvre stems from a deep connect with the masses The courage to venture where lesser politicians fear to tread comes from a belief that he has the plebeian pulse This belief in turn is based on his shtick as a people’s leader Two and a half years into his tenure as prime minister Modi has avoided the trappings of India’s most powerful office and has gone out of his way to nurture this umbilical cord This not only gives him a perspective few politicians can match it also keeps him rooted Prime Minister Narendra Modi File photo PTI If he was catapulted to power in 2014 in a wave of support Modi has also worked assiduously towards maintaining this bond He has attended more public rallies in two and a half years as prime minister than many former officeholders have done in their entire tenure While to a certain degree it reflects the paucity of leaders in BJP who can match his stature it also indicates Modi’s willingness to remain in constant touch with the electorate Between now and next year’s Assembly elections in five states for instance Modi will attend a slew of public rallies and yatras He will attend one rally per week in UP alone Apart from these direct outreaches the prime minister maintains a close relationship with his social media followers reaches out to the youth and takes feedback through a variety of mobile phone apps and uses the radio to address people every fortnight through his Mann ki Baatprogramme which is translated in 30 different languages This breathless non-stop conversation with people allows Modi to gain insights that enable him to not only take decisions that may seem political suicide to many and befuddle rivals but also to stay the course even under extreme pressure He has refused to buckle under Opposition demands to roll back demonetisation and has appeared unwilling to engage with them on their terms firm in a credence that people still trust him That this isn’t a misplaced trust has been made clear by recent events If recent bypoll results are any indication demonetisation has not been able to dent Modi’s popularity in fact has even enhanced it In the first phase of Maharashtra municipal council elections results of which came in on Monday BJP managed to make significant inroads and is heading towards getting 50 mayors elected winning in places where it never had any footprint The party won 851 seats in the polls conducted in 165 civic bodies As a report in The Telegraph points out "How big the BJP leap is can be gauged from its winning a clear majority in 31 municipalities bagging 52 president’s posts and pocketing about 900 municipal councillors’ seats In 2011 the BJP had no ward member in 80 of the 147 councils; in the remaining 67 it had some 200 councillors Its ally the Shiv Sena had about 250 councillors in all" In 2011 adds the report "The NCP and the Congress were no 1 and 2 with 950 and 771 seats respectively This time the two have won about 900 wards" Municipal polls are fought on local issues This time however poll pundits had predicted a backlash against BJP with demonetisation woes and ban on corporate banking expected to weigh down the party A report in The Indian Express just ahead of the polling day claimed that a polarisation had taken place against the BJP with even ally Shiv Sena joining the Congress and NCP corner in targeting the prime minister over currency woes "In a clear departure from the past the local body elections in Maharashtra are veering around demonetisation instead of local issues The bijli sadak panislogan has given way to a currency debate across districts gearing for local polls In the last 72 hours it has become evident that the BJP is facing isolation even as Congress NCP and Shiv Sena are making currency replacement a weapon to target Modi and the BJP" So if the referendum was sought on demonetisation BJP’s overwhelming success would indicate that people not only are staying strong behind Modi the note ban has actually brought political dividends for BJP The Maharashtra municipal polls results are in sync with the recent bypoll results where BJP either retained their seats where they are the incumbent power or registered a handsome increase in vote share In the North East it replaced Congress as the dominant force and emerged as the main Opposition force to Trinamool Congress in West Bengal In Tamil Nadu bypolls where it’s usually a two-party fight between the AIADMK and DMK a Livemint report points out that while AIADMK retaining the top spot followed by DMK is not a surprise what is definitely astonishing is that Vijayakanth-led Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) has been pushed to fourth place by the BJP And in results which came in on Tuesday the BJP followed up its success in Maharashtra civic polls with another thumping win in Gujarat According to a NDTV report of the 126 municipal and district panchayat seats in 16 districts which went to polls the BJP won 109 gaining 40 seats from the Congress The Congress added the report managed to win only 17 seats The mandate comes as an adrenaline boost for BJP with less than year to go for Assembly elections in a state which seemed to have slipped out of BJP’s grasp under former chief minister Anandiben Patel The win therefore is an unquestioned backing for Modi’s note ban policy that transcended local discontent Modi’s detractors and political rivals who were until very recently projecting the bypolls as a dipstick for Modi’s demonetisation have since been found busy trying to explain why these results should not be taken as indicative of public support for currency ban The rhetorical gymnastics shall continue Truth is if Modi is getting away with such a large-scale disruption and is even benefiting from it it is a testimony to his intense and reciprocal relationship with the masses New Delhi: An 18-year-old man was apprehended on Sundayfor allegedly carrying three live bullets in his bag while entering a
