All is not well in Modi's Gujarat
This is with reference to the editorial, "Gujarat v UPA: models of nongovernance?" (May 1-15, 2014). The development in Gujarat portrayed by Narendra Modi is mostly confined to industrialisation. Every time I read about the Gujarat model of development, I only get to read about the economic growth. But a state's success cannot be measured only by economic parameters. What about social indicators such as standard of living, employment, nutrition, education and welfare?
