    Lord Meghnad Desai says UPA-I reaped the benefits of the good work done by NDA and UPA-II is reaping the bad effects of their bungling and corruption of UPA-I

    That is what I heard and saw on the TV.

    But could someone analyse the issue in detail?

    If NDA was so good at reforms & development, then why it got thrown out of power?

    If that is the conclusion, then how NDA won elections prior to 2004? I don't need an answer.

    In any case NDA was incompetent, so got thrown out & consecutively lost race to Delhi.

    Skeptics believe that elections can not be won on development, performance, reforms.

    I am certainly not among them.

    I agree with the assessment. NDA lost because of the tough economic reforms that it has implemented - PSU divestment, Telecom reforms, regularizing petrol/diesel subsidies and prices. The benefits of these reforms has been reaped by UPA in the form of high GDP growth. The dismal performance of UPA I got masked due to high GDP growth but it got unmasked in UPA-II. The UPA won again not due to better policies but due to doling out sops at the cost of exchequer like waiving off farm loans, MNREGA etc. Now they want to come back again as UPA III by using Food security Bill. But unfortunately, the economy is not giving the fillip to carry out this dole. But I assume that they will do it (Food security bill) in 2012-2014 when it will be fresh in the minds of the people and elect them again.

    At least NDA initiated the Golden Quadrilateral and the East West, North South corridor projects, and without naming it Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sadak Navnirman Yozana.

    I remember one example how these govt take credit of others work.....Delhi-Gurgaon expressway which gave a new life to connectivity was initiated by NDA and massive development was underway... it was half way and UPA won... the posters along highway which had NDA leaders(Vajpayee) changed overnight with UPA (Sonia/MMS)

    Remember, NDA regime tested the nuke weapons in 98 and the world placed sanctions on it. Despite these sanctions, NDA did well economically and got much of sanctions removed with some deft foreign policy and much of the bridges were built during this time.

    Because people don't vote on policies. Hindus vote for caste and minorities vote for religion. This is "fair-enough" generalization of Indian politics.

    You dont know that ?
