‘Promises & Reality’ Citizens’ Report on 4 years of NDA Governance



This  Citizen’s Report takes a comprehensive look at the four years of the government, makes an objective assessment of the direction that society and economy have taken and makes its statement. It reviews various electoral promises for all-round development, employment generation, improved health and education, strong economy, enabling environment and equal opportunities for marginalised communities, social justice and social harmony, protection of human rights, land rights and environment et al. The report reviews these very issues from the lens of the vulnerable populations and constitutional mandates. While much has been promised and popularised, the report finds many gaps and much more needs to be done.  There are many disturbing trends of continued exploitation and marginalization of these communities.
