Where Is Modi The Economic Modernizer
So what, precisely, has been Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s response to the fact that his mismanagement of the economy has caused growth to slow to alarming proportions? He’s announced a push towards rural electrification, as well as a new economic policy council. What does this reaction say about his politics going forward? Both in the 2014 election campaign and in the years since, Modi has had to balance two narratives. First as an economic modernizer and reformer and second is that he is a man of the people, and will provide benefits like 50 percent returns for farmers. Now, in 2017, people are still looking for that Modi who is nowhere in the picture.
