    As Narendra Modi government completes three years at the Centre today, it was expected that the BJP-led regime would indulge in grand display of its successes and successes only. The opposition leaders were also expecting the same from the government. But it seems, the opposition would have to be disappointed for now as Modi government has itself outlined all its most talked about failures and negatives in the last three years. In a report card of the three years of Modi government released by the President’s Secretariat, the government has taken self-criticism to a new level by pointing out the failures as well.

    Here are highlights of the report card of Three Years of Modi Government:

    The report card says that the record of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in power has been “impressive, judging by macroeconomic parameters, especially inflation.” “Politically too, the BJP has seen unprecedented ascendancy by wresting back power in Uttar Pradesh in March after a gap of 15 years and expanding its electoral footprint to the North-East. This in part explains why Prime Minister Narendra Modi remains India’s most popular political leader.”

    Talking about Modi Government’s chances in 2019 general elections, the report card says, “Still, controversies associated with the actions of fringe saffron groups have left the BJP vulnerable to criticism. The next general election is due in 2019 and, to a large extent, the outcome will depend on Modi’s management of the optics and his government’s ability to generate jobs to meet the growing aspirations of voters.”

    All the failures and successes of Modi government in three years:

    Connectivity:
    Positive

    1. New integrated transportation initiative for roads, railways, waterways and civil aviation.

    2. Sagarmala and Bharatmala programmes for the construction of new ports and expressways.

    3. UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) regional connectivity scheme with fares starting at about Rs2,500.

    Negative

    1. Increasing number of railway accidents.

    2. 23km per day of highway construction achieved vis-a-vis a target of 41km.

    3. Air India’s finances are still precarious. The national carrier is still grappling with legacy issues.

    Terror, defence and foreign policy
    Positive

    1. Carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, resumed cordon and search operations in more than 20 villages in Shopian.

    2. Combing operations launched against Maoists in Chhattisgarh.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “neighbourhood diplomacy” falling in place as relations with Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka look up.

    Negative

    1. No strategy to pre-empt rebel attacks on security personnel in districts where Maoists are active.

    2. Ties with Pakistan and China are icy despite Prime Minister Modi making trips to both countries (a December 2015 stopover in the former).

    3. Relations with Russia—India’s once time-tested friend—too seem to be in the doldrums.

    Farmers:
    Positive

    1. New crop insurance scheme and higher funding for irrigation to counter weather risks.

    2. Set an ambitious goal to double farm incomes in real terms by 2022, moving away from the historical focus on increasing production.

    3. Initiated a range of marketing reforms to create a “one nation, one market” in agriculture.

    Negative

    1. Decline in wholesale prices of vegetables and pulses has dented farm incomes.

    2. A loan waiver in Uttar Pradesh led to a moral hazard problem and delay in repayment of loans in other states.

    2. Rs42,000 crore unlocked for afforestation with Parliament passing The Compensatory Afforestation Fund Bill, 2016.

    3. Clean and renewable energy generation gets a boost.

    Negative

    1. Neglect of the forest and wildlife sectors. Decisions pending on a national forest policy, definition of forests, inviolate forest areas and a national wildlife action plan.

    2. Activists allege that the government is favouring industries and indiscriminately giving green clearances, ignoring the toll taken on the environment.

    3. Ganga clean-up is yet to gather momentum.

    Fiscal situation
    Positive

    1. Got states on board to introduce the goods and services tax (GST), the biggest tax reform since independence.

    2. Crackdown on black money leads to a surge in 2016-17 tax receipts, number of return filers.

    Negative

    1. Demonetisation drive led to short-term cash crunch, hit small and medium enterprises.

    2. Pending cases of retrospective taxation on past transactions still unresolved.

    3. Inability to bring back black money stashed away abroad by citizens.

    Politics
    Positive

    1. Getting unanimity on the economic reforms agenda with high parliamentary productivity.

    2. Series of electoral gains puts the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on the political forefront.

    3. Expanding voter base of the BJP to Dalits and other backward classes, focus on expansion in the North-East.

    Negative

    1. Failure to get consensus on reform policies like a proposed land bill.

    2. Allegations of toppling elected state governments.

    3. Problems within the NDA: the Peoples Democratic Party (Jammu and Kashmir), Shiv Sena (Maharashtra) and Telugu Desam Party (Andhra Pradesh) are annoyed with the BJP leadership.

    That is why congress is reduced to 6 seats out of 425 inspite of alliance with samajwadi party. They are irreverent forces struggling hard not just to regain power but just stay relevant like you.

    Earlier people used to mock them but now people has started taking any notice of them. It is a circus of monkeys doing circus to get noticed. People shall forcefully retire them in 2019.

    Rahul baba was a funny character of Indian polity but now people find comedy else where and stopped taking notice of Rahul baba as even comedian.

    Your picture do not prove anything. I can post 10 for your 1. Since you have nothing substential against Modi, people like you tries to make issues out of Non issues. He is not corrupt like your master who think that they got a vote to loot the country. In next few years pappu shall be selling tea in Delhi. Pappu tea.

    Fire cracker bombs.
