Blog Past: A Manifesto for Middle India

This is from a year ago (during the election season) – and still very relevant now – on thetop anxieties of Middle India that need to be addressed:

  • More Economic Freedom: An assurance that liberalisation will continue, because that is what creates more jobs and opportunities. Over the past few years, liberalisation has come to a halt.
  • Less Government Interference: An assurance that people will have more control of their own lives, without the spectre of a government bearing down on them. This means decisions made on merit, and elimination of unnecessary rules and regulations which hobble us and our enterprise. Also, a government that works to eliminate corruption at all levels and introduce greater accountability in its functioning.
  • Best Education: If there is one thing that can make us more competitive in the global economy, it is education. India needs the education sector to be opened up.
  • Security: Over the past few years, the feeling of security has slowly ebbed away with multiple acts of terrorism coming to our doorstep. India needs to feel safe again.
