    India most disappointing among BRIC nations: Goldman's O'Neill - The Economic Times

    India most disappointing among BRIC nations: Goldman's O'Neill

    Why is that on the greatest courageous deals for the country do we see BJP always opposing it for cheap political gain?

    On what was heralded the biggest foreign policy win for any country ALA US-India nuke deal , BJP were against it. And now, with india feeling the pain from the euro crisis- the FDI retail deal being opposed by the BJP. This is resulting in people calling in the creditability of india in question. This FDI deal is almost doubling india current monthly investment and we have anti free market , anti competition Hindu rate protectionist politicians killing india's growth....

    BJP stands for baniya janta party. anways opposition job is to oppose, so they are doing thier job.
    it's the job of the government to keep it's allies close. so GOI has to do a better job of handling it.

    Make no mistake if bjp were in govt they would be pushing through the fdi bill and congress would be opposing it. They are political parties and for them politics is always a priority over national interest. But some people are deluded and will continue to parrot the party line for no logical reason.

    spot on,
    the urge to get into power far outweights party principles and morals. it is what it is. politics is not for the faint hearted.
    no wonder people like us are only good for writing in the fourms, that's why none of us are in politics. it's a tough job to be a
    politician. anyways opposition is keeping the govt on its toes, which is a good thing. they system is working as it was designed. push and pull are part of it. I liked BJP when they put liability clauses in the nuclear deal. uncle sam thought that he had the whole indian nuclear industry in it's pocket, until it was hit with big liability slap.

    I don't think so.

    BJP never in their political history supported a 100% FDI in retail.

    So there is no argument as such of their opposition to this move being mere political point scoring exercise.

    from what i have read, the bjp is the best with the economy. their results speak for themselves.

    just because it is a globalized economy, does not mean you need to invite mega-retailers to take over your market shares.

    there is no obligation to send your money overseas if there is a viable domestic option. though healthy amounts of competition are always welcome,

    Not blaming bjp alone. It's there job to oppose, and hence they are opposing. Heck they look more left then the left parties.
    It's the pure compulsion of being popular that is forcing their stand. But at least now everybody what stand is on FDI.

    Lies. They tried to introduce it in 2002. That has been their economic policy.

    I hate all BJP lovers and Congress lovers. Somehow, even the educated blogging class is so deeply political here, it is shocking. The hordes of BJP fanboys are squirming all over the internet because of this issue.

    We blame politicians all the while, but the truth is that most Indians, even educated ones, cannot think about issues - they think only of their favoured party. Look at the way all discussions are converted into a BJP-Congress thing!

    Mehh. It was Late.Murasoli Maran who tried to introduce it as his ministerial reform and the proposal never went beyond the GoM stage.

    Try better.

    p.s:- Just introducing fancy words like "BJP Horde" as if they are indian version of Genghis Khan's ruthless Mongol Horde does not prove anything:tsk:.

    Education doesn't make anybody less bias. Many educated pakistani's support taliban point of view.
    Also Varuna Gandhi is also very educated, once has to hear his CD , before 2009 elections.
    bjp supporters keep blaming congress for vote bank politics. They Don't talk about their baniya vote bank.
    muslim's are considered vote bank, even though they don't get any reservation.
    But you see the baniya EDIT wants reservation, he doesn't want competition in FDI.
    This is called soft tyranny.

    Let me ask everybody on this forum, why the he'll muslims are not included in backward quota.
    Only Hindus and sikhs are included in quotas. The reason given is that cast system is supported in Hinduism , therefore quota
    Is needed for upliftment . None of the Hindu scriptures supported castes, neither did the Sikh gurus supported it. But they are the one's only
    Benifiting it.

    No govt of the day congress/bjp will survive without quota. The manias will the first one is arms.

    Mod Note: Sukhish, be careful in you choice of wards. Take this as a friendly warning.

    Go check your facts..certain Muslim and Christian groups ARE included in list of those entitled to affirmative action benefits..and many who claim to represent those communities are now demanding quotas for Dali muslims and Dalit christians..ironic isn't it..

    To Mods: I thought that it was DFI policy not to condone attacks based on caste, community, political affinity and religion. The member posting under the name sukhish has openly abused certain social/entrepreneurial groups by calling them "baniya thugs". Are the mods going to permit such depravity on these fora?

    The truth is that the BJP is playing political opportunist here. Just like they did in the nuke deal. We are not idiots here not to notice such an obvious thing.

    I really wish these hordes of BJP fanboys begin supporting/opposing on the basis of issues, rather than blind adulation towards their party. End of the day, no matter how much we moan about politicians, the reality is that even our educated blogging class is the same category. No care for the nation, just worried about electoral gains.

    I have noticed this blind behaviour on enough blogs and forums in cyberspace. I think we should coin and popularize a term, "pseudo nationalists" for these BJP fanboys, just like they go around screaming "pseudo secular" at every other person they interact with.

    You have not answered / skirted the question and just repeating your words - again & again and just because you say it's the truth, it doesn't become one.It's just your opinion till you prove it.

    When has BJP as a party supported 100% FDI in retail that it's opposition now is being branded opportunistic ?

    The truth is it has never supported that and saying it does not make one a member of any 'horde'. I'm afraid that riding an intellectual high horse isn't exactly helping anyone.

    I was planning on writing an article on that same topic.

    People with excessive loyalty to party, caste, religion, etc. are anything but nationalists. It goes against the very definition of 'nationalism'.

    And Jay,

    Get some new words for your OP's. For a man with supposed 10,000 IQ these words are getting rather boring.

    Earlier i thought, There is some news with title name but then i realised that a Congress supporter has started the thread and few of his comrades has processed this ridiculous thread with individual thought which has nothing to do with facts and reality. :pound:
