Parrikar questions Jesuit priest addressing Goans

He said that the minorities will not fall prey to false propaganda.

Panaji: 

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday took on Gujarat- based Jesuit priest Father Cedric Prakash, questioning his address to Goans on Modi and the BJP.

“Fr Cedric Prakash was in Goa recently. He has been operating from Gujarat for the last 12 years,” Parrikar said adding that the Jesuit priest is safe in Ahmedabad for the last 12 years.

He also said it was the Congress that brought the anti- conversion law in Madhya Pradesh during the tenure of S C Shukla. He wanted to know why accusing fingers are only pointed out at Modi and the BJP for enacting a similar law in Gujarat.

While the Jesuit is safe in the Modi-ruled Gujarat “he is telling us so many things about Gujarat”, Parrikar said, while addressing a meeting of party candidate Narendra Sawaikar.

He said that the minorities will not fall prey to false propaganda saying he has received clear signals from minority Salcete that the people will this time vote for the BJP.

Taking a dig at the Congress, he said the party has no workers even to work as polling agents on the polling day.

He said Narendra Modi will become the country’s prime minister saying the BJP will cross the magic figure with ease.

“Victory of the two seats in Goa will be like icing on the cake for the BJP”, he said.

    Don’t Ask ” How ” ?

    At the bottom of the 42 page Election Manifesto of BJP , released yesterday , I tried to search , if in very small print somewhere , there was a footnote which read ,

    ” Please , don’t ask how we plan to implement these promises ;
    From where we plan to find all the money to execute these projects ”

    Here are my back-of-the-envelope estimates of what some of the MAJOR projects might cost :
    ————————————————————————————
    PROJECT ……………………………… Approx Cost ( Rs Lakh * Crores )
    ————————————————————————————-
    > 100 Mega Cities…………………… 90
    > Interlinking of Rivers……………… 60
    > Sagar Mala of Ports……………….. 30
    > Highways ( 25,000 Km )………….. 50
    > Housing ( 100 mill units )………… 100
    > Rivers Cleaning…………………….. 10
    > Other Infra Projects……………….. 100
    * Freight Corridors
    * Gas Grids
    * OFC Network
    * Quadrilateral Bullet Trains
    ————————————————————————————
    Total ……………………………………Rs 430 Lakh Crores
    ————————————————————————————
    Admittedly , not all of these money will be required in the very first budget that NaMo government ( – of course , only if voted to power ! ) , would present by end June 2014

    But a problem does not go away by postponement !

    There is only ONE viable solution to the FUNDING problem , viz:,

    > Union Government must NOT even try to fund these projects !
    There is NO WAY , it can find these kind of money thro taxation !
    There will be a revolt !

    ANSWER

    > Make it possible for the PUBLIC to invest into these projects by ” owning ”
    these projects – and earn a reasonable ” tax-free ” return on investments
    ( Bonds ? ) in these projects

    > Towards this end , create various INFRASTRUCTURE SPVs

    > Immediately modify PERSONAL INCOME TAX regime as follows :

    > Up to Rs 5 lakhs………………… NIL
    > 5.1 – 10 lakhs………………….. 8 %
    > 10.1 – 20 lakhs…………………. 6 %
    > 20.1 – 50 lakhs………………… 5 %
    > 50.1 – 100 lakhs………………… 3 %
    > Above 100 lakhs…………………. 1 %

    What is likely to happen with such ” INVERSE TAXATION ” regime ?

    Following few things :

    > Total personal tax payer base will go up dramatically from current 4
    crores tax-payers

    > with this ” INVERSE TAX REGIME ” , there will be no incentive to evade
    taxes and to generate ” BLACK MONEY ”

    There will be no resistance to accept ALL payments by cheque / electronic
    clearance

    The more you disclose as your income , the less you pay by way of taxes

    ( Of course , incrementally )

    > For a change , we will learn to reward honesty / efficiency / productivity !

    No need to bribe those Income Tax officers !

    > Suddenly , lakhs of crores of BLACK MONEY will become WHITE MONEY

    > There will be a huge surge in bank deposits ( – even with , the inevitable
    lower interest rates )

    > Banks will be awash with funds to finance businesses / infrastructure
    projects etc , encouraging entrepreneurs / self-employed to set up new
    businesses ( at 2 % interest rates of loans ) and generate millions of jobs

    In any case , BJP manifesto promises :

    > Rationalization and simplification of the tax regime – which is currently
    repulsive for honest tax payers

    > The process of bringing black money to India , what belongs to India , will
    be put in motion on priority

    > Minimize scope for Corruption

    Narendrabhai ,

    Here is your chance to ditch the ” Historical Baggage ” into the Indian Ocean
    and come up with an INNOVATION that will take India ahead of China !

    If President Kubitschek of Brazil ( 1956-61 ) – son of a poor salesman – could construct Capital city BRASILIA and a 1500 Km highway , in 41 months , surely , you can do better , 57 years later !
