    The thesis advanced was - economic prosperity will be guarantee to Security .

    My answer - Economic factors is one of the foundations of Security but not a guarantee to security. To guarantee security many more things besides the economics are needed.

    That is all.

    If I add to this discussion on what is more important and how things are interdependent; there are a few Issues I would like to mention.

    Most important is Economy but I will start on Infrastructure.

    Modi 1.0 was all about public spending and IPO on infrastructure. Now that spending has to gradually reduce with more private money coming in.

    Private players are benefiting from a growing market but their profits are marginal. Lack of innovation and dependence on the technology bought from outside is hurting their margins. On top of that high-interest rates and credit-crunch is not giving them enough confidence.

    India may sustain this GDP rate for the short term but we need long term planning. Lack of innovation must be addressed by investing heavily in HR and R&D. Private player will only participate when margins of profits are better and that will only happen when the technology is available in-house.

    Disinvestment will give both short and long term boost but eventually, we will have nothing much to privatize.

    Addressing agrarian stress with handouts, value addition, storage and irrigation; are multipronged approaches that must be unleashed. Irrigation has been the most overlooked reform and possibly the most corruption infested. Not only that it is going to be the biggest money guzzler as many audacious projects like connecting the rivers are still in their infancy.

    India is moving steadily from traditional exports like garments to manufactured products; and finding new markets in South America, Africa, Asia etc. As incomes increase, India will lose competitiveness in some sectors to cheaper labour elsewhere. India's project exports and manufactures are rising while leather and garment exports are stagnating or shrinking.

    Wait for some time. I shall post composition of India's exports and imports and comparison to 10 years back.

    Right approach would have been to start from grass roots and start recruiting local Tamils who are religious. Then send them to North in places like vrindawan, badrinath, haridwar etc. Then let these tamilians return and recruit more on religious lines. Let them loose on social media and propagate how tamilians are forced to toe Abhramic religions lines rather than dharmic.

    Basically, and unfortunately, let there be a division between Hindus and atheists, Christians, Muslims. Checkmate opposition to corner that they are forced to do vote bank politics and alienate Hindus.

    Saam, daam, dand, bhed....whatever it takes, crack TN like West Bengal. We want whole integration of India and for that we shall resort to congis type vote bank politics, albeit temporarily.

    That need not be a replacement, it could be an addition. Garments are a huge business employing millions, best not to write it off.

    It is a natural process driven by market forces. Garment business is not dead, its output is absorbed by domestic market. As incomes rise, people buy more clothes, build better houses, buy more automobiles etc. Economy is not only about exports.

    I hv pinned high hopes on Amit shah as a home minister. He is adamant on annulling article 370.. bjp will have majority in rajya Sabha by 2020, no wonder why librandus nd anti nationals bigots are shitting bricks as he is appointed home minister.

    Earlier attempt to divide hindus on caste lines has failed at the hustings of general elections. Now the Plan B to cause chaos in name of language and religion has been initiated. I would not be surprised if the puppeteer is in western world or Arab.

    The first challenge of the Modi govt. will be to negotiate this minefield to restrict the space to take decision on issues of National interest like Article 370A, Sri Ram Janmbhoomi, Education reforms, Uniform Civil Code. All these issues have Hindu and Muslim faultlines which ia going to be exploited for spreading chaos and has potential of causing pain.

    Amit Shah and Modi will need all guile and wickedness to push through these changes . These decisions will improve National well being and force anti-india forces to reveal themselves. At that moment we neutralise those forces covertly or overtly. I feel this term is going to be ruthless and eventful. I have my seat belts firmly locked. The purge of anti-nationals is about to begin and it is going to be brutal, ugly and no holds barred match... We might find unexpected allies in this fight. West and OIC will be defeated soundly.

    Trying to exploit fault lines is an old Cold War tactic, there is going to be no end to it and neither any country is able to control the “attacks” coming from outside.

    Only solution is making Indian citizens more alert and aware of these things, so that they reject these ideas themselves. Basically we have to make indian citizens more invested in India’s future.

    Bangladeshi muslim intruders are committing murders in northern States. This problem is now very serious. We cannot go by what Momota begum thinks. The country's security will not be run according to whims of Momota begum.

    Is it really? So then how should we view the 2019 LS results in TN? And what do you think will happen in the next state polls?

    Also, from the looks of it, most common Tamils seem to be pretty anti BJP and anti Modi due to severe disinformation by DMK types/lack of understanding of BJP & Modi. Am I mistaken in this assessment?

    There is anti-incumbency and infight of stupid proportions in AIADMK. After Jailalita they have no face. There is nothing much there to read on these results.

    Probably preparing to avert a tax evasion notice, otherwise snakes never change their spots.

    What do you see in the near future in TN? Results of next state polls? Can/will AIADMK infighting be solved by a unifying figure (Rajinikanth?) ? Will the current NDA alliance continue and how will BJP itself perform/grow?
