Democracy: The Modi Interpretation

Stalling parliament, blocking bills, preventing debates. Modi's version of democracy in Gujarat includes a Vidhan Sabha that only sits 29 days a year and the suspension of those who dare to raise questions. Mathrubhumi newspaper calls it the 'Modi'fication of democracy. The result: a Chief Minister whose budget, portfolios and ministers are above institutions and process, which have been relegated to mere ritual.
