Quality Council of India (QCI) over six months carried out a massive survey of rural sanitation--Swacchh Survekshan Gramin research covered 140,000 households across 700 districts. Each household was personally visited. Every household was geo-tagged. The positive results are staggering: Nine out of 10 households now have toilets and they use it--they are not turned into stores as propagandists claim. So are the results of 53 out of 74 cities surveyed. The draining cost on health due to open defecation, faeces in groundwater, encephalitis, diarrhea is being tackled head on.

That's Swacchh Bharat for you.

Modi government has come a long way in providing a basic safety net to every Indian, be it food, electricity, housing, toilets, gas-based cooking, insurance coverage, micro-loans, all-weather road or some employment.

The financial inclusion drive through Jan Dhan-Aadhar-Mobile (JAM) trinity has removed leakages, ghost accounts and fake beneficiaries from Direct Benefit Transfers (DBT),

Massive infrastructure build-up is being reflected in railways, national highways, rural roads, housing, air connectivity and rural electrification.

National Investment and Infrastructure Fund is providing equity-risk capital with global investors.

Atal Innovation Mission scheme is rarely written about. And same about Mudra Programme and India Aspiration Fund. The success of StartUpIndia could be measured if one visits IIT campuses. The strides in renewable energy, electrical vehicles and financial services are not mentioned.

Bankruptcy Code and an Alternative Assets Industry is now finally in place.

And we haven't come to talking about Surgical Strikes, Doklam and mass cleansing of terrorists from Jammu & Kashmir!

Jumla_Man Branding: Very few believe it!!!

I looked up at hashtags such as Jumla, Pheku, Jumlanomics, JumlaMan, Jumla Diwas, JumlaMaharaj, etc, on twitter and was surprised at the low traction it has managed in three years. The #JumlaMaharaj, for example, initiated by Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha, has only 85 tweets so far. JumlaJayanti has been there for over two years. The others too don't have the traction.

Every trick--and more--have been tried in the last three years. From doubting surgical strikes to EVM; to dragging Modi's mother and wife with fake news; to running down country itself by hobnobbing with the Chinese and in US.

What more proof do you want of this insidious industry as it can't find even one good thing in the Modi government, which is massively backed by people of this country, sweeping one state after another with record margins???

And what do you call them?

"Feku."
