Modi government revives communal tensions to accelerate economic growth


NEW DELHI—Rejecting criticism that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had done little to distinguish its economic policies from those of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), Finance Minister Arun Jaitley stated today that communal tensions sparked by emboldened Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bajrang Dal cadres would ultimately stoke demand in housing, cement and infrastructure.

The diminishing of communal tensions during UPA rule caused grave damage to India’s growth prospects, said former banker and newly appointed BJP President Amit Shah, pointing out that there is a stock of poorly-maintained minority housing and decrepit public transport in grave need of replacement: “The Guru Golwalkar National Urban Renewal Mission is well and truly underway.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi affirmed that his government was singularly focused on reviving economic growth: “I was elected to expand the Gujarat model to the rest of India and, by God, that’s exactly what I will do.”
