Businesses wary of criticising Modi govt

BJP IT chief’s response to Rahul Bajaj proves the party’s inability to handle dissent Amit Malviya Twitter| Rahul Bajaj IANS

She was replying to a tweet by Sitharaman who shared a video of The Economic Times' ET Awards event in Mumbai on Saturday where Bajaj, chairman of Bajaj Group, had told Sitharaman, Home Minister Amit Shah and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on dais that people were afraid of criticising the BJP government's policies and added that no one in the business community would speak about this issue.

Ms Sitharaman mentioned the industrialist was capable of ask the essential query to the Dwelling Minister exclusively as a result of "freedom of expression" is "alive" in India. "Let me say this clearly, no one needs to fear". None of our industrialist friends will talk. I could suppose that openly. His remark drew applause from the crowd. He said that it was important for a systemic change, "under UPA 2 we could abuse anyone that is another point". The Narendra Modi government has been criticised continuously in media. "We strongly condemn it", Mr Shah mentioned, mirroring comments made by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. "Mr Bajaj, who prefaced his remarks by announcing "you are doing real work", counseled the Home Minister "...if we criticise you there's no such thing as a self belief that you may possibly enjoy that". "I need to no longer suppose this...". Everyone says everything in their affidavit as well as Parliament. No one wants to scare... and we have done nothing to be concerned about any criticism...

Bajaj said, "Nobody will say".

"[Mohan] Bhagwat says that lynching is a foreign word - that lynching used to take place in the West".

"It creates an environment of intolerance and we are scared".

Contrarily, Bajaj said, "Without conviction, people are in jail for 100 days", hinting at Congress leader P Chidambaram, adding, "I'm not supporting anybody".

Responding, Shah said lynchings used to happen earlier too and the number was probably higher as he also denied the assertion that there have been no convictions. The Home Minister also claimed that several cases of lynchings have been concluded and "strict action has been taken against accused but media does not publish them'".

Pragya Thakur again invited controversy on Wednesday with her remarks in the Lok Sabha during DMK member A Raja's narration of a statement by Nathuram Godse before a court on why he killed Mahatma Gandhi. And that she had been brought into the consultative committee despite the PM earlier saying he would find it hard to forgive her.
