    Whatever happened to Modi's scam free India?

    So, Modi gave his speech, and famously said, “Have to change our image as 'Scam India' to 'Skilled India.'”

    Now, we are hearing that, well, just read the quote:
    So, where is the skill? India did not qualify for the World Cup. Yet, these MLAs qualified for a trip to Brazil.

    Of course, British Brainwashing Corporation (BBC) is continuing its anti-Modi tirade, as is their job (sitting in their cosy London office, pontificating, and character assassination of anyone they don't like), but should that absolve Modi from his responsibility to curb this type of largesse?

    They were BJP MLAs from Goa, not MPs (news article seems to be a bit confused) . I think the tour itself has been cancelled.

    Goa Government Cancels MLAs' World Cup 'Study Tour' to Brazil - NDTV

    Strange story though, they decided to include the Goa fisheries ministry, and a few others while the sports minister, and an ex football captain, were not allowed to travel (they said it was a study tour as Goa s hosting the u-17 worldcup), but it seemed like appeasement to me :p. Anyway good that they decided to listen and cancel the whole thing.

    News article is not confused. It clearly says "Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) from Goa state."

    Please read the opening post again.

    Edit: I was wrong. You are correct, the news article uses both MP and MLA. It is indeed a bit confused.

    It's good that, tour itself has been cancelled.

    However, it was utterly a foolish decision by Mr. Manohar Parikar in the place who thought of sending MLAs on a joyride using public money :tsk:

    I believe, Goan govt has received stinkers BJP top brass hence, they had to cancel the Study Tour.

    The West has to tarnish the image of India and so they will give their spin and make old news appear hot from the Press.

    Indians are wise and they did not allow the MLAs to have their junket.

    And so the MLAs are going on their own steam.

    The Indian people have changed their mindset and are forcing politicians to abide by the rules; at least the politicians with some conscience.

    Hope that same happens to the mindset of the UP politicians and they become human.

    Actually, the trip was cancelled after Modi stepped in and vetoed it. He has set strict guidelines for foreign visits for Union Ministers and have requested all BJP state governments to follow the same.

    However now that Brazil President has invited all BRICS HoS to watch FIFA WC Final, including Modi, Indian & foreign media is salivating at this Catch 22 situation:

    If Modi doesn't go: Modi snubs Brazil; BRICS is not in Modi's agenda; Bad diplomatic decision; etc. etc.

    If Modi goes: Modi is not doing work, only going on tours; Modi having fun at tax-payer's expense; How can he go when he didn't allow others to go?; For Modi WC Final is more important than Law & Order/inflation/blah/blah; etc. etc.

    Some of Modi Govt. steps taken for scam free India.. All these in less than a month.

    * Environmental clearance requests to be on e-platform only [No more Jayanti tax kind, as accused by opposition parties in last govt.]
    * Defence procurements above 10 Lakh Rs. to be on e-platform only
    * All required steps taken to resolve issues in Defence forces readiness (where in corruption impacts important defence procurement )
    * Ministry and Bureaucrats are brought in line to work hard and not letting to run their own interest or vendetta.
    * Removed many useless and non sense procedures in Govt. for quick resolution of issues and to bring accountability (abolished GOMs and EGOMs)
    * More power to Bureaucrats to take decisions as per process and not to budge for political causes

    Dilma Rousseff is wise enough, and the things you said, which I agree with, if explained to her, I am certain she will understand.

    It's the job of British since they never like India ruled by nationalists.

    Since BBC can't report how British women are getting screwed and groomed by past slaves aka Pakistan/Bangladesh etc and how their British soldiers gets beheaded by Negros they got something to bash upon. :lol:

    I don't understand how BBC came into the picture. But India will not be scam free under NDA.

    Agreed. India can only be scam free if her people want it to be. We are all part of this dirty game.
