It is said that history will judge P.V. Narasimha Rao more kindly than his contemporaries. More than his comment about how a decision can mean not taking a decision, or sleeping through the afternoon when the Babri masjid was demolished, what he will be remembered for is as an initiator of the epoch-making economic reforms although the nitty-gritty were handled by his finance minister, Manmohan Singh between 1991 and 1996.

Demonetisation which the prime minister had claimed would help root out black money and curb corruption has become a demon which has already started devouring the popularity of the Modi government and BJP. This is indicated by what happened during the Parliament’s just concluded winter session. The faulty implementation of demonetisation has united, at least for the present, the otherwise divided opposition which took on the Modi government.

The Centre has decided to exempt the bank deposits and property of the political parties from the purview of income-tax. Also, anyone can deposit any amount of money in demonetized 500 and 1000-rupee notes in bank accounts of the parties, with no questions asked. In view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s jihad against black money (which prodded him to demonetize high denomination currency notes), his government’s discrimination between the common people and the political parties is inexplicable.
