Import of pulses jumped from $2.3 billion in 2013-14 to $4 billion—an increase of 74%. Out of 5.4 million tonnes (mt) of pulses shipped to India, 50% or about 2.7 mt are peas/yellow peas from Canada/USA.
From exporter of wheat of about 14 million tonnes (approx $4 billion in 2012-13 to 2014-15), India has turned into a structural importer of $1.5 billion of grain in the last three years.
In 2014-15, basmati/ non-basmati rice exports were $7.8 billion, this has slipped to $5.8 billion in 2016-17, but still, India remains world’s largest exporter of rice at 10 mt. Poor demand in Africa, especially in Nigeria, of non-basmati rice, and slow down of basmati shipments to Iran and Saudi Arabia could be possible reasons. Iran shipments declined over 50% from 1.44 million tonnes in 2013-14 to 0.7 million tonnes in 2016-17.
Cotton exports tapered down from $3.8 billion to $1.4 billion during 2013-14 and 2016-17—lower by 63%. Exports to China and Pakistan suffered, while Bangladesh remained a consistent market.
There has been a drastic fall (86%) in soy meal exports from $2.8 billion to $0.38 billion; likewise, guargum exports have been 75% lower and beef and fish have witnessed a 48% decline in 2016-17 from their peak performance of $10 billion in 2014-15.

Mere sloganeering or globe-trekking won't kick-start economy nor will bring Acche din.

The Parliament’s Standing Committee on Commerce has questioned the country’s low manufacturing growth despite initiatives such as Make In India, Startup India and FDI reforms that are now more than two years old.

The committee, led by BJP MP Bhupender Yadav, had expressed concerns about manufacturing growth averaging just 1.6% in the five years till 2015-16 and a 0.5% contraction in the sector in the first 9 months of FY17, in a report tabled in Parliament this March.

BJP folks themselves are doubting their administration's policies.
