As voting begins in India's elections, opponents of Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been attacking his record on the economy. They've zeroed in on two policies - "demonetization" and the "goods and services tax," which they claim have put hundreds of thousands of small companies out of business. But the prime minister's supporters argue these moves are important structural reforms. Political parties are lighting up social media with last-minute campaigning - including on issues like national security and interfaith tensions. Voting in the elections is due to be held through May 19th.

Many western media people are not really connected to Indian politics. They seem to listen to few English speaking journalists in the cities of India ; who have leftist ideology and no connection with villagers of India. Or , these western media is occupied in anti-Modi rhetoric. (1) unemployment (2) Hindu Nationalism (3) Note- Bandhi keeps on popping up in comments by them. Just like NDTV

Of course, taxes take money from the citizen pockets. Root cause of resentment towards TAXES in almost all countries. The Indian Primary education system's failure to include sufficient curriculum content regarding Indian citizenship responsibilities and who really pays for the services provided by the Indian government explains to some extent the reluctance to pay taxes.
