PM Modi’s Last-Minute ‘Reforms’ Unlikely to Work: Ruchir Sharma
Video Editor: Abhishek Sharma
Ruchir Sharma, global investor and bestselling author, has chased at least one election in India every year for the past 25 years. He has traversed across the country meeting voters and politicians in an attempt to understand the juggernaut that is Indian democracy. A culmination of these travels and conversations is his latest book ‘Democracy on the Road: A 25-Year Journey through India’.
In this interview with The Quint, Sharma explains how national media, just like national politics, tends to overlook the state-specific factors playing out in any election. India’s parliamentary democracy tends to resist the presidential style.
