Jacinda Ardern Newzealand’s current primi minister is the most popular PM in a Century

According to a poll, the current PM of New Zealand is the most popular PM in a century. This comes after the lock down restrictions were lifted nearly after a month but still some social measures are being implemented.

The credit goes to the PM because the country was able to control the pandemic better than almost any country. New Zealand was witnessing a significant decrease in number of new cases.

She is now the role model for many people out there and no doubt many countries people would want a PM of such calibre in tackling disasters like she did.

Liquor during crisis time/ lock-down? Here is why states are opting for Liquor despite it is unhealthy

Many states have started the sale of liquor in the lock-down 3.0, that’s when many thought it was not a good decision during the pandemic. So let us have a look at why the states have started this.

Firstly due to lock-down all states revenue has fallen to almost nothing. So where do they get revenue from. There is an images from Times of India that breakdowns the various sources of income that a state gets.

So we can see in the above image state own tax revenue is about 46%. That 46% comprises of State GST, VAT(fuel), Excise(liquor), Property, Vehicles etc. So we all know that during lock-down many automobiles reported zero sales which means there is no vehicle tax. Also people are staying in home which means very less fuel taxes. No sales of property also.

So a government will think to boost its economy will go for liquor since all the others are more risky than this one and they get good revenues. Also many governments have already increased taxes on liquor so that less people buy it. Also governments like Telangana warned people that if the physical distancing norms are not followed then no liquor would be on sale with immediate effect.

So actually governments must try to boost their economies. Some ways include increasing tax on petrol/diesel since these prices went into negative due to no demand. Also salary cuts for government employees is another option. Cost cutting wherever possible which can be either delayed or cancelled for time being so that we can go further when the economy is good.

If you are reading this article, please suggest in comment section the ways government can increase their revenues.

Vocal for Local does not mean ban on foreign products.

It was on May 12 that our PM announced to public the slogan “Vocal for local”. Soon it went viral on social media and people misread(or rather misunderstood as ban of foreign products).

What it meant was support for local products to make our country indigenous. That is what “Athma Nirbhar” meant meaning self reliant. But people misunderstood it to something like ban foreign products. Why is this not a good way to analyse? Because a sudden ban on foreign products is almost impossible.

We are using many things that are foregin products. For example take Maggi its not made in India. Most of us like it very much. Now a sudden ban on that product means there should be a well known brand and people should like it immediately no matter what it tastes like forcing customers to switch habits. This sometimes works but many times it fails because switching is hard and if there is no proper replacement the replaced product that was made in India will incur a huge loss eventually leading to its closure. This change will be gradual and cannot be reflected immediately like switching off or on a fan switch.

There is another side effect of banning foreign product. If we ban foreign products even foreign countries will ban our products. That is a huge loss to our economy. We don’t want that to happen. So dear social media users don’t spread false meanings extracted from such news like some Media does it.

Government today already announced that going local does not mean we are getting isolated from the world. It means we are being more self reliant so that in a situation like now we are in will help our economy to not fall completely apart.

Self Reliant and Vocal for Local are the key takeaways from Modi’s address to people on May 12

  • This package would cover almost entirely all sectors in the country to boost the economy and help poor and middle class that is hard hit by the lock-down.
  • Lock-down 4.0 after May 17 will be implemented with new rules.
  • All the new rules and norms will be announced before May 18th.
  • The decision to extend the lock-down was taken after the virtual meeting with all Chief Ministers of the states.
