BJP Govt’s ‘laxity in Securing India’s Borders
Since May 26, 2014, during Modi Government- In the last 44 months, nearly 348 Jawans have been martyred and 201 civilians have died in Jammu and Kashmir alone. During last 44 months of Congress Govt 134 Jawans martyred & 76 Civilians killed.
2555 Ceasefire Violations’ by Pakistan at LoC & IB, 543 Ceasefire Violations duriung last 44 months of Congress Govt. January 2018 recorded most violations of ceasefire on the LoC since 2003.
India’s Defence Preparedness Compromised IAF’s Fighter Fleet has fallen to a record low of 32 Squadrons against the Air Force demand of 45 Squadrons., i.e lowest in last 10 years. After cancelling, UPA’s purchase of 126 Rafale Aircrafts ,BJP announced ‘off the shelf’ purchase of 36 Rafales in 2016. Till date, not a single Aircraft delivered or price decided, thus, compromising fire power of our Air Force.
Army has a shortage of 7679 officers, Navy has a gap of 1,434 officers while Air Force has a shortage of 15,5357 airmen*
Congress Govt approved raising of ‘Mountain Strike Corps’ along the China border with 90,274 additional soldiers at a cost of Rs 64,678 Crore .Under BJP Govt, it lies in the lurch. *Defence Minister’s Statement in Lok Sabha /27 Dec,2017 .
Armed Forces Demand for Defence Capital Budget drastically reduced, Defence Budget reduced & allocated amount unspent.
|Year||Armed Forces Demand (in Cr.)||Budgeted Amount (in Cr.)||Actual Utilization (In Cr.)||Unspent Amount (In Cr)|
In Budget 2018-19, Defence got just 1.58% of GDP, lowest allocation since 1962.
In March 2018, Army told Parliamentary panel that, only 8% of our equipment is state-of-the-art, 68% is vintage; that it cannot pay for emergency weapons purschase made post surgical strikes/Doklam standoff, that there not enough resources to undertake the construction of strategic roads on China border and ‘Make in India’ has failed to take off.
J&K IS IN TURMOIL!
Jawans are humiliated & martyred, civilians are killed, ISIS & Pakistani flags flown, schools burnt & democracy assaulted –‘Power’ blinds BJP-PDP Govt.
Democracy Under Siege as PDP-BJP Govt. Stumbles !
Srinagar Lok Sabha by-poll witnessed lowest ever voter turnout of 7%
First time ever, EC canceled a LokSabha by-poll (Anantnag) as Gol refused to deploy 30,000 troops.
BJP underplays Article 370, AFSPA, ‘Jammu CM’ & reservation for Kashmiri Pundits at the altar of power sharing.
Duplicity of BJP Exposed!
First time ever, Duplicity of BJP in engaging with Hurriyat, dealing with separatists like Masarat Alam & Asiya Andrabi (which is on ‘Beti Bachao’ poster; compensating Burhan Wani’s family has and invitation to the 151 to investigate Pathankot attack exposed the HYPOCRISY OF BJP!
In 4 years, 348 jawans martyred, 201 civilians killed. 15,000 civilians, 4,000 security personnel injured & 36 schools burnt by extremists. Yet, peace eludes.
Naxals Mutilate Bodies, CRPF Personnel Martyred!
295 security personnel martyred
447 civilians killed by naxals
4158 incidents of naxal violence
in last 4years
All Dressed up and nowhere to go.
If ‘Flip-Flop’ is a Policy, then BJP Govt. has a `FOREIGN POLICY’
BJP Govt’s failed “NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICY” is proving to be a security threat for India
Modi Govt’s Doublespeak on Doklam
Media reports & latest Satellite Imagery suggest that the Chinese Army has not only build Full-Fledged Chinese Military Complex in Doklam; but also has already occupied the entire Doklam plateau right upto 10m from Indian Army post.
The new images show concrete posts, seven helipads, new trenches and several dozen armoured vehicles close to the point where the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops were locked in a 72-day confrontation last year. Has Modi Govt taken note of this incursion? How will Modi Govt settle the issue of Tri-junction at Doklam? Is it only about empty rhetoric and no diplomatic action?
India Encircled: Neighbourhood Policy in Tatter?
China has exponentially expanded strategic, economic & defense partnerships with Nepal, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
China — Pakista, Corridor (CPEC worth $54 billion built through PoK/Balochistan connecting Gwadar Port in Arabian Sea to China with base for Chinese submarines. Does it not compromise India’s Sovereign right over P0K? & affects our strategic interests in the Arabian Sea with Chinese Naval Base.
Inconsistency, Unpredictability & U-Turns define the Pak Policy
THE FALSE BRAVADO
ALL THIS HAS MARKED THE LACK OF POLITICAL WILL, DIRECTION AND INACTION
India – China – Pakistan
China blocks India’s membership of ‘Nuclear Suppliers Group’ asking for parity with rogue Pakistan.
China opposes India’s membership of UN Security Council.
China vetoes declaration of Masood Azhar as an ‘international terrorist’ under Pak’s pressure.
Media Reports indicate that China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is helping the Pakistan Army to fortify its bunkers along the Rajasthan border.
India – China
Yet, BJP Govt. continues to massively import
‘MADE IN CHINA’
i.e. an increase in value of more than Rs. 60,000 Crores.
Imports from China (In USD Million)

Overseas Jobs in Peril… BJP Flounders
New American H1B Visa Bills impose severe restrictions incl. doubling eligible minimum wage from $60,000 to $1,30,000.
Indian techies, who receive 85% of US H1BVisa, are worst affected.
New policy led to erosion of 9% (Rs. 33,000 Cr) value of stocks of top 5 Indian IT companies.
As PM Modi feted Australian PM Turnbull from 9-14th April, 2017; he announced abolition of Aus. 457Visa on 18th April jeopardizing the future of nearly 73,000 Indian 457Visa holders.
YET, BJP GOVT VACILLATES!
