Why Gujarat is Different

October 28th, 2011 · 39 Comments

En route to Ahmedabad, Atanu and I got talking to the person next to us. He was from one of the world’s largest multinationals. He narrated a story that is worth repeating.

His company wanted to invest $1 billion into setting up various manufacturing facilities in Karnataka. It took them many months to get the land. Even after the land was acquired, the politicians did not stop interfering and demanding bribes. Given that the company does not compromise on integrity, there was no way it could do the pay-offs. Their CEO then met with the Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi. Within four days, the land had been allotted. Even as the factories are coming up, the rail head has been built, the road has been constructed, and the link to the port will be established soon. He said this story was not unique — many other companies had faced similar challenges in other states, and then come to Gujarat to find a different world.

Leadership matters, and what India needs at this stage of our evolution is strong and decisive leadership. We need to keep this in mind when we vote next.

    I heard the same about China. Same mantra for development working in Gujrat too! Great!

    gujarat has been a hub for minorities as well. it is the epicenter for bphra muslims in surat, mosques and dargahs in ahmedabad, ijtemas and madrasas in baroda, memons, kutchi muslims are in large numbers in gujarat. they have major biz and various dealers in markets. But is Modi proud to have them? Or does he want to remove the thorn?

    Because Gujrat has it’s own beauty and culture that make it different.

    I totally have same experience with business in Gujarat.

    It feels like heaven compared to any state in India. And almost all government officials in Gujarat are easily accessible (even at late evening).

    I still wonder whether India will be able to elect Modi as PM due to one big blot on otherwise clean sheet.

    An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers.
