was seen campaigning in the posh localities of west Ahmedabad In Satellite area which is one of the city’s poshest areas and comes under Gandhinagar constituency she is heard declaring: “Advaniji (L K Advani) is our dear leader He is our candidate” and adds in the same breath “This election is unique Our Narendrabhai is the prime ministerial candidate While Narendrabhai is from Ahmedabad it becomes our collective responsibility to win from the Gandhinagar constituency with a huge margin” On Friday afternoon Advani’s daughter Pratibha and state minister for revenue and urban development Anandi Patel launched the patriarch’s campaign through a bike rally that passed through residential areas of west Ahmedabad Even as Advani is expected to arrive on April 5 the BJP is preparing ground for his campaign because it wants to win all 26 seats Given that Advani reluctantly accepted to contest from here for the fifth time the party is taking no chance In the campaign led by local leaders therefore Advani’s victory is not as much a target as is winning of Gandhinagar for the sake of the Modi math Even the truck that led the bike rally from Manav Mandir in Ghatlodia Assembly constituency in Gandhiagar had a huge Modi poster that read “Aavo Aapna Narendrabhai ne vadapradhan banaviye Ab ki baar Modi sarkar’ (Let’s come together to make our Narendrabhai Prime Minister This time it is going to be a Modi government) Almost all workers wore saffron caps with “Modi For PM” slogans even as Pratibha and Anandi Patel led the rally in an open jeep waving the victory sign In the constituency represented by Advani since 1991 the mayor’s over 10-minute speech had only one mention of Advani Then on it was all about Modi the Modi government and `future PM Modi’ Justifying her pitch Patel says “Modiji has a charisma and popularity He is our PM candidate And people of Gujarat know his work and for the same reason people of Gujarat pin their hopes on him” The bike rally started from near Anandi Patel’s home Patel a close aide of Modi and number two in his government is also guardian of Gandhinagar seat Though the campaign is about Lok Sabha election Patel’s supporters put up her pictures in enthusiasm Pravin Patel senior BJP leader from Ahmedabad and in-charge of Gandhinagar constituency says “We are used to campaigning without candidates We have done it for Advani and Modi” But the campaign has not been smooth During the mayor’s late evening rounds residents of Kanak Kala-II an apartment on the 100 feet road where she held a meeting received her with

urbanIndian planning cannot address the challenges of urbanisation in our present stage of development This column typically presents case studies of urban transformation to show the good work that is going on in the cities and towns of India The column today breaks from the set formula to present some broad insights which I articulated on the occasion of the presentation to the prime minister of the updated edition of the bookIndias Economic Reforms and Development: Essays for Manmohan Singh (OUP 2012) Fourteen years ago I had co-edited this festschrift for Dr Manmohan Singh with Prof IMD LittleDr Singhs thesis adviser at Oxford University Our epilogue for the second edition highlights certain features of the change that has occurred in India since 1998 In the six years after the launch of the economic reforms in 1991the average growth rate of the Indian economy was 55 per cent per annum In the past six yearsthe growth rate has averaged over 8 per cent per annum Growth has been a good 25 percentage points higher even when we are facing an adverse external environment because of the global slowdown beginning with 2008-09 But the faster growth does not feel so much better partly because there has been a major slowdown in growth in 2011-12 to 69 per cent but mainly because aspirations have grown fasterand we need to make economic growth more inclusive One way to ensure inclusion is to expand opportunities for employment in high productivity jobs as the economy grows faster Indians born in 1991 are 21 years old in 2012 Half of Indias population today is below the age of 25 This half of our population started life in India when the economy was growing at 55 per cent; growth accelerated slowly and steadily to 8 per cent as they grew up They are restive for more No wondera 69 per cent growth is seen as a collapse The faster growth has been accompanied by a reduction in poverty During the period from 1993-94 to 2004-05the percentage of population in poverty declined at the rate of 075 percentage points per year In the subsequent period from 2004-05 to 2009-10the decline has been twice as fast This faster rate of decline in poverty is true no matter where we draw the poverty line Howevergiven the large magnitude of poverty which remains with usthis improvement should not lull us into complacency What is morewith faster growth and rising aspirationsthe acceptable level of poverty must be redefined At the same timewe must accept the fact that faster growth has been associated with faster decline in povertyand faster growth is necessary for winning our battle against poverty Faster growth has made it possible at long last to begin to address the challenges of inclusionsocial protectioneducation and healthas can be seen in the numerous initiatives of the government of India in the past seven years The danger today is that we seem to take faster growth for granted Growth is currently under threat from a deteriorating macroeconomic environment and a downturn in the investment climate If growth slows downwe will lose instruments that have enabled the government in recent years to bring about inclusionprovide social protectionand begin the task of eliminating hunger and malnutrition The growth process faces several challenges These include fiscal unsustainabilityincomplete financial sector reformsproblems in infrastructure reforms including those relating to regulatory frameworksmacroeconomic management in an uncertain international economic environmentand also challenges of overall governance All these must be addressedand addressed soon There are two new challenges which were not present in 1998 Urbanisation was not an issue then Our urban population has increased from 286 million in 2001 to 377 million in 2011 Even soonly 30 per cent of Indian population is urbanmuch less than in most other developing countries including China It is projected to increase to 600 million by 2031 Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) launched in 2005was a pioneering national mission for the urban sector While it has made some difference in improving urban service delivery in some selected cities in some sectorsfor exampledrinking water and solid waste managementprogress has been slower than expected Its lessons must be incorporated in the design of the new JNNURM which should begin soon and be implemented in the spirit of implementing the 74th Constitutional Amendment which has placed this responsibility for service delivery on the local governments More and more cities will have to become the engines of national development as the non-agricultural sectors increase further their contribution to GDP The share of agriculture in GDP has declined from 294 per cent in 1991-92 to 14 per cent in 2011-12 In order to foster the economies of agglomeration and minimise the diseconomies of congestion in Indian citieswe will have to bridge the deficit in urban infrastructure This will have to be financed through funding from the government of India via JNNURM type programsdevolution of funds from the state governments to local governments (with guaranteed and predictable transfers)and by making local governments financially stronger External finance whether through public private partnership (PPP) or through the municipal bond market would ultimately be contingent on an internal revenue model This requires improved governance at all levels of government so as to significantly improve the state of urban service delivery for all We need to plan our cities with focus on public transport and affordable housing so as to make them slum-free Building capacities in human resources and institutions is critical to bring about this huge structural transformation It is extremely important to bring about a fundamental shift in the mindset which separates rural from the urban in planning for development A synergy needs to be established not only between large cities and medium and small cities but also between small cities/towns and villages A second major new challenge is that of scarcity of skills No one was talking of any skill deficit in 1998 It took only 10-12 years of growth at 75 to 8 per cent per annum to show how unprepared we were with respect to the demand for skilled manpower The demographic opportunity of a growing proportion of working age population must be converted into a growth dividend by empowering our youth with the skills that are in demand Similarlywe need to expand the scope of higher education in the country and also significantly improve its quality if we wish to retain our lead in the world economy in the knowledge based sectorsfor eaxmplepharmaceuticalsauto components and IT sectors A significant achievement of the economic reforms launched by Dr Manmohan Singh in 1991 is that 20 years latermany apprehensions have been allayed as Indias transformation from a slow growing economy to one of the fastest growing economies in the world has been achieved While we argumentative Indians discuss and debate the means to attain and sustain high growthinclusion has emerged as a central concern Democratic forces are at work to ensure inclusion in the process of development When any society goes through structural transformation associated with rapid growth of the kind that the Indian economy has experienced in the last 20 yearsinstitutions take time to adjust The resulting turbulence is there for all to see in an open democratic society such as ours Some people see this as collapse of governance. “We are political
