The latest reform initiative by the government is being pitched as potentially the biggest overhaul of industrial policy in about three decades and will come just ahead of the coming national election. However, it is not clear why it could not come much earlier. Recently, the government had also set up a task force on imports.

As the ruling BJP gears up for the three State elections followed by the general election, the Government’s propaganda machinery has gone into an overdrive tell the people the supposed ‘successes’ of the Government. Optimistic GDP growth rate figures are being flaunted, without telling the people that the basis for calculation has been quietly changed so as to present a picture far from the truth.
