mortality education or various health indicators Modi’s Gujarat has done quite well India is at the halfway stage of Election 2014 and if opinion polls and turnout increases are to be believed it looks increasingly likely that Narendra Modi will be our next prime minister Why Modi evokes such strong reactions from the Congress and the Left (could it be that they know that their days as the political elite are numbered with a challenger like Modi) is a subject for a later article The advantage with forecasting what might happen under Modi is much more than predicting the future of India if Rahul Gandhi was the leader or even if it were LK Advani Sushma Swaraj or Rajnath Singh The reason is simple — with Modi one has a performance record in Gujarat a record spanning over 12 years But and this is the first of many objections Gujarat is not India It has only a six crore population India is 20 times as large so what lessons can the Gujarat experience provide I have always found this “objection” to Modi the most forced and for lack of a better word most stupid Indeed in no election in India or elsewhere has stupidity sunk to such depths One of the best political leaders in the last century Bill Clinton was the governor of a state Arkansas whose population is three million Quite honestly the objection to Modi as PM on such nonsensical grounds is not worth any discussion So my apologies There are many reasonable objections to a candidate’s quest for the highest honour In the case of Modi the biggest negative is the fact that a large communal riot took place under his watch Godhra 2002 Enough has been written on this matter by scholars commentators pundits politicians and laypersons (including myself) that yet another discourse will have precious little value-add There are other possible objections to Modi as PM — that his leadership style borders on a personality cult and that he has a tendency to be authoritarian My own view as a liberal is that one should worry about such attributes but I am rather shocked that my good intellectual friends did not raise such objections for the last 50 years or even utter a word about the personality cult around the Gandhis (Indira Rajiv Sonia Rahul and Priyanka) And regarding authoritarianism and dictatorial leadership we now have formal evidence from Sanjaya Baru’s book The Accidental Prime Minister that Sonia Gandhi has been just as dictatorial as Indira Gandhi and perhaps even more so since she did not (does not) have the constitutional authority to be authoritarian So the political personality objections to Modi as PM do not carry much weight What is worth discussing and what does seem to carry weight with the new-age Indian voter is economic performance under different leaderships In my previous article (‘Gujarat’s inclusive growth’ IE April 12) I had discussed the pattern of growth in Gujarat since 1992 and how it had performed in the pre-Modi (1992-2001) and post-Modi (2002-present) phases relative to other comparable big states in India I had identified the following seven similar states (SSS) as being comparable to Gujarat in 2001 the year Modi became chief minister: Andhra Pradesh Himachal Pradesh Karnataka Kerala Rajasthan Tamil Nadu and West Bengal There were some objections online to the fact that I did not include Mizoram and Nagaland as comparators to Gujarat — simple reason comparable especially NSS data is not easily available for the small states Gujarat has performed very well on unemployment agriculture industrial and per capita GDP growth but how has it performed with respect to socio-economic indicators pertaining to health education inequality etc That is the question being answered in this article The results: One inequality: Gujarat performs marginally better than the SSS Real inequality in Gujarat as measured by the Gini coefficient increased by 23 percentage points (ppt) to 286 between 1999-2000 and 2011-12 (NSS data); in the SSS real inequality increased by 327 ppt to 324 So the level of inequality is less in Gujarat and the increase is less and the increase is small Two education: The increase in school enrolment in comparator states is higher than the increase in Gujarat but this result has largely to do with the fact that the variable being considered is subject to a ceiling value (100 per cent enrolment) So if a state starts with a higher initial level its growth rate or increment will by definition most likely be less (Think about Kerala — according to increase it is the worst performing state) In 2011-12 female enrolment of the disadvantaged (SCs STs and Muslims) in Gujarat was 901 per cent compared to 867 for the comparator states The corresponding levels in 1999-2000 were 867 and 572 per cent respectively Three access to water and sanitation: Very similar increases in both Gujarat and the SSS; however Gujarat ahead by about 4 to 8 percentage points with the highest lead in urban areas (97 per cent in Gujarat vs 89 per cent in SSS) Four health: Female infant mortality in Gujarat was 60 deaths per 1000 births in 2001 and declined to 42 in 2011; for the SSS the decline was slightly larger to 36 from 565 in 2001 But female life expectancy increased by more in Gujarat: from 646 in 2001 to 71 in 2008 versus a smaller increase (659 to 708) for the comparator states Note also that in 2001 female life expectancy in Gujarat was 13 ppt lower than SSS; in 2008 it was marginally higher Five sex ratio at birth (SRB): It is quite unlikely that a chief minister can have any influence over trends in the sex ratio especially the sex ratio at birth The only reason this statistic is being documented is because it was much talked about when Modi became the PM nominee of the BJP in September 2013 That was the stick used to beat up the Gujarat model but without presentation of evidence of course For whatever its worth the SRB statistics suggest that the lot of the girl child has improved considerably in Gujarat between 2001 and 2011 The increase is of 72 points (from 844 to 916) second only to the increase observed in Himachal Pradesh (from 826 to 935) The national increase was considerably less at only 16 points (from 892 to 908) (Note that the biological ratio of girl births to 1000 boy births is 950) Several bits of data presented in this and in my earlier article reveal a consistent story a story independent of the type of data (micro-household or state level) used The reality is not data dependent or dependent on the choice of states used to compare Gujarat with One can make the absurd choice of choosing the best performing state for each separate variable and then seeing where Gujarat stands or make the equally absurd claim that “look Himachal is better on sex ratio so shouldn’t one be talking of the Himachal model” Alternatively the research and policy community can accept the fact that the socio-economic performance of Gujarat has been the best or certainly among the best of all the states in India for the post-2000 time-period Maybe the policies that Gujarat pursued in this time-period had something to do with its exceptional performance The writer is chairman of Oxus

Top NewsAfter several years brand Rahul Gandhi is in demand again Every morning these days we wake up to find Gandhieither trending on Twitter (read Pidi) or dominating headlines on Google both considered indicators of popular interest Who would have thought to rephrase Lady Macbeth the young man would one day generate so much interest His one-liners are finding traction Images of his extra-curricular activities are going viral His election rallies are drawing crowds and applause And young girls are clicking selfies with him As the inimitable Richie Benaud would have said it is all happening here in our lifetimes What is the reason behind this sudden surge of interest in the Congress vice-president Why is a politician branded as the Bahadur Shah Zafar of his dynasty derided as Pappu subjected to cruel memes and jokes getting both applause and attention Every event we know from experience is because of the confluence of three things – time place and effort Or as they say cometh the hour cometh the man And this is exactly what is driving interest in the Congress leader We will talk about the time and place later Butfirst let us deconstruct the effort Gandhihas made to resell himself to the Indian audience Gandhi’s biggest success – and we are not talking about electoral gains they are still in the realm of future – has been his ability to ‘humanise’ himself Slowly and steadily he has given us a glimpse of Gandhias a person a walking breathing entity instead of the abstract concept he once was Just a few years before it was easier to lampoon Gandhi because we knew very little about him In his previous avatar he was merely a symbol of the dynastic politics of the Congress a lucky recipient of its culture of entitlement When he talked he seemed tutored When he acted it appeared staged That Gandhi frankly reminded many of PG Wodehouse’s famous quip: "He had just about enough intelligence to open his mouth when he wanted to eat but certainly no more" And because he seemed to act out a script nothing about him seemed genuine Because he seemed born for faux-pas eating crows and putting his foot in the mouth nothing about him seemed serious It was thus easy to disrespect and despise this concept the mask the facade the manufactured novice he appeared to be But suddenly Gandhi has begun to impress upon us that like all of us he is a human being too with his own character and personality weaknesses and strengths He has opened up in public with earnestness honesty packaged not in faux anger but self-deprecating humour shy revelations and witty one-liners in the process giving us glimpses into his soul And in my opinion in spite of differences with his politics we seem to like what we see in Gandhi primarily because this is the first time we are seeing him as a person not as a dynastic bot Take for instance Wednesday’s incident of a girl climbing up his van to get a selfie with Gandhi during his roadshow at Bharuch If you watch the video closely it would actually make you feel good because of the array of happy emotions it projects – a young enthusiastic girl’s innocence Gandhi’s embarrassed and shy smile and his genuine concern for the girl as she climbers down the vehicle manifest in his holding of her hand till she is back on the ground This one incident says a million things about Gandhi the kind of man he is In my opinion he is one politician you would like to bring home not for a selfie but a quiet meal with the family Toon by @MANJULtoons We now know that Gandhi is like many of us – a lover of pets an aficionado of sports a shy sensitive person who believes in the Indian adage of not publicising his good deeds manifest in his help to Nirbhaya’s family In essence he now seems like many of us Naturally it makes his dynastic privileged background little more bearable for us Of course this rebranding repackaging – by experts or self – of Gandhi the display of his human side would have had no impact if time and place had not favoured him Though the process has just begun it can be argued that there is something really changing on the ground The atmosphere and environment that led to the rise of Narendra Modi and demise of the Congress is slowly changing Gandhi’s road shows in Gujarat his election rallies suggest people are willing to listen to alternate voices They are willing to pay attention to themann ki baatof people other than the prime minister There is something inside every voter now that needs to be articulated with clarity without fear And Gandhi seems to be doing that By showing us his human face Gandhi is turning into the voice of many fellow humans Time place and efforts – his own and that of the BJP’s – have all conspired to surprise Lady Macbeth and all of us India on Monday signed four agreements including one to step up cooperation in the defence sector after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held talks with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte in Manila to boost bilateral ties The prime minister had a very warm and cordial meeting with president Duterte Secretary (East) Ministry of External Affairs Preeti Saran said She said that the two nations signed an agreement to boost bilateral cooperation in defence and logistics The countries also signed an agreement on enhancing cooperation in agriculture small and medium enterprises and Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) and the Philippines Foreign Service Institute Saran said File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte Twitter @narendramodi Duterte expressed interest in acquiring fast offshore patrol vessels and welcomed Indian pharmaceutical companies to invest in his country to make good quality and cheaper drugs He also said Indian infrastructure companies could explore opportunities in the Philippines Modi on his part expressed interest in expanding cooperation with the Philippines in the renewable energy sector and welcomed the country to join the Solar Alliance He also invited Duterte to visit India to take part in the 25th anniversary of India-ASEAN relations which will be celebrated next year The meeting’s relevance stems from the fact that Modi is the first Indian prime minister to visit the Philippines in over 36 years This meeting between the two leaders comes in the backdrop of cordial relations between the two nations One of Modi’s foreign policy priorities has been better relations with itsSoutheast Asian neighbours with his assertion of turning the erstwhile "Look East" policy into an "Act East" This combined withstrengthened ASEAN-India relations have had a positive impact on bilateral relations with an impetus on trade and investment This has especially been the case since the initiation of ASEAN-India Summit-level partnership and establishment of East Asia Summit of which India is a founding member As Modi said in hisspeech at the ASEAN Summit India and the Philippineshave a lot in common;they are both pluralistic societies and a strong democratic polity The two nations have witnessed strong service sector growth and have flourishingeconomies as well Hence trade and commerce come to the forefront of avenues that can be explored by the nations Trade between India and the Philippines currently stands at $1981 billion in 2016-17 India’s exports to the Philippines amount to $1487 million and imports worth $494 million The fact that India formally signed the Trade in Services & Trade in Investments Agreement with ASEAN in 2014 is anticipated to further boost these figures According to the Bureau
