Will performance in States decide electoral verdict in 2014?  


American business magnate Harvey Samuel Firestone once ascribed the growth and development of a nation as “the highest calling of any leadership.” Since our Independence in 1947, it has been the effort of every successive Government to accelerate the process of development. State Governments play a significant role in this process as their development schemes ultimately constitute the cohesive growth of the country. With the 2014 Lok Sabha elections approaching, the political corridors are full of whispers that the next mandate will probably be in favour of a party which proves its mettle through significant development in States where it holds power. With States holding the key to changing the electoral discourse in our country, we at Bureaucracy Today decided to study the performance of ten major States which are ruled by different political parties and analyse their development. In this issue of Bureaucracy Today, we present a comparative study of development in Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. These States represent a significant part of India’s population. Bureaucracy Today finds that Haryana where Bhupinder Singh Hooda has encouraged rapid industrialization, Gujarat with Narendra Modi at the helm working on an aggressive economic policy and Bihar with Nitish Kumar’s consistency, deserve a special mention as their Chief Ministers seem to be on the right track of development.   Our State Watch section this month features Uttar Pradesh where surprisingly over 200 bureaucrats were transferred in a single day in February 2013 by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. With a string of minor and major reshuffles across the IAS, IPS and PCS cadres, Akhilesh it seems has decided to follow a “carrot and stick policy” as he realizes that the only way to survive in the political battlefield is to ensure UP’s development. BT’s brand new segment, Minister’s forum, features an interview with Water Resources Minister Harish Rawat who speaks about his work and vision for the Ministry. In this column we hope to quiz Ministers about the work done by them during their tenures and be a source for the people’s voice to reach them. We invite all Bureaucracy Today readers to send us any queries/grievances they might have with their elected representatives and we promise to make sure that they are addressed on the right platform.
