In his speech yesterday, PM Modi made several claims about the relief programmes of the government over the last three months. There is no denying that whatever assistance reached the people during these trying times would have brought some relief. However, true to his image, the Prime Minister vastly overstated what the government has done to bring relief to the people and the scale of assistance provided during the last three months.

What scares the Modi government is that even if they clamour for or accept higher levels of expenditure today, international finance and the domestic big business interests will neither spare it for long if the fiscal deficit increases and nor will they want to pay the taxes tomorrow to reduce it. Its refusal to spend today is therefore its declaration of its undying love for them and its unwillingness to take them on in the interests of the Indian people.
