Marching with a Billion
Analysing Narendra Modi’s Government
In Marching with a Billion, Uday Mahurkar analyses the Modi government's first term in power against the backdrop of years of policy paralysis and corruption before he took office, leaving him with a tough task and high expectations. Focusing on key areas of governance like infrastructure, foreign affairs, power, the social sector, finance, digital technology and agriculture, the author showcases the work of the present government and the monumental changes the prime minister has brought about. This includes digital innovation and the elimination of the middleman, which has resulted in transparency and last-mile delivery. He also points out some of the shortfalls of Modi's government, subjecting it to critical evaluation. Will Modi become a great institution builder, a prerequisite to becoming a nation builder? What can we expect from the second term? This book has the answers.
