Extremely good points. One could also include lack of incentive to recover the billions of dollars illegally deposited in banks abroad.
The prediction of someone is coming true, "Lion of Gujarat is turning out to be the Mouse of "Italy & Islam"."
The Hindu is still afraid, over cautious and mentally timid. We all must help him stand up on his own feet in Hindusthan.

In the recent bye-elections held for State Assemblies in Uttarakhand, Bihar, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, BJP has been defeated in a number of seats which were held by it. The reasons for BJP’s poor performance in the said bye-elections are as follows:
1. Though since its victory in 2014 Parliamentary elections, presentation of Budget in July, 2014 was the ideal opportunity for drastic reduction of massive wasteful government expenditure and reduction of taxes, BJP’s Budget continued UPA’s high tax regime and wasteful and anti-growth policies including the Aadhaar Card scheme; and earned the tag of UPA – 3 government.
2. Besides, BJP’s budget continued UPA’s divisive policy of ‘communal budgeting’ since thousands of crores of rupees have been allocated to the Ministry of Minority Affairs.
3. Apart from ignoring the core issues of uniform civil code, abolition of Article 370, and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Hindus in Kashmir, BJP is silent about crores of Bangladeshi infiltrators grabbing India. The slogan ‘Sabka saath sabka vikaas’ (participation of all, development for all) cannot include crores of Bangladeshi and Pakistani infiltrators.
4. Nationalists like Arun Shourie and Subramanian Swamy who would have helped the implementation of nationalist agenda have been kept out of union cabinet.
5. Despite the questions raised about the discrepancy in her affidavits filed before the Election Commission regarding her educational qualification, Smriti Irani continues to be HRD Minister.
6. Though the country’s defence is a crucial matter, BJP-led government has got only a part-time Defence Minister since the present Defence Minister is also the country’s Finance Minister. Keeping the two most important ministries of Defence and Finance with one individual defies all logic since both the Defence and Finance ministries must be manned by full time Ministers.
7. In order to retain its popular appeal, BJP must not become arrogant and self-righteous. Rather, it must remain faithful to its nationalist agenda.
