Economist warns of turmoil, change in India’s map if Modi wins third term

NEW DELHI: Dr. Parakala Prabhakar, a noted political economist and author, has warned that re-electing Narendra Modi as Prime Minister could lead to nationwide turmoil and a drastic change in India’s map.

The writings of Dr. Prabhakar, husband of Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, including “The Crooked Timber of New India: Essays on a Republic in Crisis,” and an upcoming book about Modi, highlight his concerns over the current state of Indian democracy.

Dr. Prabhakar expressed his deep concerns about the potential outcome of the upcoming Lok Sabha election, stating that a third term for Modi would lead to nationwide turmoil and a drastic change in India’s map.

Dr. Prabhakar, who is also the husband of Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, was scathing in his criticism of Modi’s leadership, labeling him “crazily incompetent” and a “dictator.” He argued that the past ten years under Modi’s rule have been marked by incompetence, divisiveness, and a widening wealth gap, with India’s unemployment rate comparable to war-torn countries like Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen.

The economist also highlighted the controversial Electoral Bond Scheme, which he described as “not just India’s but also the largest scam globally.” He pointed out that the BJP has been the primary beneficiary of these bonds, with data from the Election Commission of India’s official website revealing a clear bias towards the ruling party.

Dr. Prabhakar predicted that the BJP will not win more than 230 seats in the upcoming election, contradicting Modi’s claims of winning over 400 seats. He believes that the party’s true agenda is to establish a Hindu rashtra, which was concealed from the public during the 2014 election.

He urged citizens to oppose the BJP’s Hindutva agenda and protect India’s democratic ideals. The warnings from Dr. Prabhakar, a respected voice in Indian politics and economics, have sparked intense debate and concern among citizens, political analysts, and opposition parties. As India prepares for the crucial Lok Sabha election, his words serve as a stark reminder of the high stakes involved and the need for vigilance in protecting the country’s democratic fabric.

Guha told Karan Thapar that the intention of Prime Minister Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah “is to suppress all free speech and hold the entire spectrum of the media landscape captive to their interests.” Guha also came down heavily on the avowed stance of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). “The ideology of the RSS can be summed up in six words: ‘We shall show Muslims their place.’ Nothing more, nothing less. They live here in India, they eat here, they cohabit here, they work here, fully on terms we the Hindus set for them,” he said.
