Corruption against Development: Corruption had become unattachable things in Indian politics and the system. During UPA rule, corruption had increased so much that people got frustrated and started a camapign of “Bhrashtachar Mitav Desh Bachao” under Anna Hazare. But, as usual there was any firm actions had taken from UPA government.
Under UPA government(2004-2014), there were lots of scams that happened. Below I have mentioned politicians and their involvement in scams:
Sharad Pawar: Sharad Pawar, the king of Corruption!! He invlc=ved in most of the scams that happened in India. Though he has a good political brain he used it only for his personal gain, not for the country.
The common saying about Sharad Pawar among his enemies and his closest friends is – “When a thousand evil dies, Mr Pawar was born”.
- Stamp paper scam ( Telgi Scam)
Abdul Karim Telgi, convicted Indian criminal, during Narco test, filmed by various Indian news channels, wherein he also mentioned Chhagan Bhujbal as well as Sharad Pawar. Shocking next day, there was no news regarding this!! After a few days, the news was being flashed as Telgi was found dead”.
8. Nira Radia’s allegations
In 2011, under investigation of the 2G spectrum scam Nira Radia told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) that agriculture minister Pawar control the DB realty and he spoke with the A raja (Telecom Minister) about the allocation of spectrum.
Lavasa was built by acquiring land of farmers. It got the necessary clearance( from congress-NCP goverment) . Pawar’s daughter and son-in-law had more than 20% ownership between 2002 and 2004, and they later sold their stakes.A nephew of his was chairman of Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation (MKVDC)
Saradha, Narada, Rose Valley scams :
Saradha chit fund scam that duped millions of depositors spread across states spanning from Odisha and Jharkhand to Assam and Tripura. Another scam was the West Bengal-based hospitality-to-real estate group Rose Valley cheated investors of Rs 17,000 crore
The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) signed a contract to purchase 12 AgustaWestland AW101 helicopters in February 2010 for the Communication Squadron of Indian Air Force to carry the president, PM and other VVIPs. Controversy over the contract came to light on 12 February 2013 with the arrest of Giuseppe Orsi, the CEO of Finmeccanica, AgustaWestland’s parent company by Italian authorities over corruption and bribery charges. The middleman Micheal chirtain got arrested by Indian government in February 2019. During interrogation, he himself said that the Italian lady and his son got some percentage this deal.
Sonia also has been accused in most of the scams. As she is the controlling one, without her knowing no one can do anything even a scam because in every scam she got her percentage.
Rahul Gandhi was famously known as Pappu. He was once arrested in a USA airport by FBI, for carrying drugs with him. Later, due to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, US has released from custody.
Another major incident happened when Rahul had been accused of gang rape by congress part women. Later, there was no any news on even a single news channel.
He was also got shared in Augusta Westland scam.
Other mahagathabandhan members such as fodder Scam( Lalu Yadav), Adarsh Scam( Akosh Chavan-Congress), Commonwealth scams ( Congress-Suresh Kalmadi), Coal scams, 2G scams( Congress- A Raja& P Chidambaram, Sharad Pawar),and many more. There is a long list of scams , even I cant mention all of scams in one article!! This is the only list of scams that happened under 2009-2014 tenure.
People wanted change. People of India voted Naredndra Modi as they saw the firm action taker and strong leader in him.
Questioning Armed Force:
No strong Foreign policy: UPA’s foreign policies was incompetent as compared to this government’s foreign policies. During UPA tenure, every one of the neighboring countries was against India and China made a friendly relationship with them. Maldives, Srilanka and also Nepal government was having China-backed governments.
In 2014, When Prime mister Narendra Modi got elected, the first thing he did, he invited all SARC members even Pakistan prime minister to be part in oath ceremony. It was the first step towards
He introduced the “Look East India Policy”. China has disputes with all of its neighbors. China claims territories of 23 countries even though it only has borders with 14 countries. China was growing its presence in the Indian subcontinent. So, it was high time to act immediately against this aggressive China policy. So, he chose these countries
Weakened Intelligent agencies:
India has two prime intelligent agencies one is IB( Intelligent bureau) and other one is “RAW( Research Analysis Wing). There was a need to create a different agency for foreign intelligence. In 1962, RAW was created during Indira Gandhi’s tenure. RAW played a vital role during 1971 INDO-Pak war.
Moraraji Desai called Pakistan’s prime minister and said ” we know what are you planning. We have intelligence and our agents have strong evidence.” Due to this information, our RAW agent’s cover was blown up and over 50 agents got killed. This was a setback for our agencies and it took around 20-30 years to be back on track. Intelligent agencies didn’t like congress because they didn’t give the desired freedom for covert operations p and they don’t have the decision-making capability. They think their personal agenda is far more important than country’s. If you remember, during UPA tenure, there were more than 5 major terrorist attacks that happened, the Mumbai bomb blast, Pune german bakery bomb blast, Bangalore, 26/11 Mumbai, etc. All of these attacks happened not because of our intelligence agencies didn’t have the intelligence report but it happened because agencies didn’t give the details to the state department.
