Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a talent for coining slogans that go viral. While Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Swachh Bharat are meant for India, his Make in India call was meant for the world, and it has received global attention.
The cynical will say that it is yet another slogan that arouses expectations, but are not followed up with actions and soon forgotten. Like Garibi Hatao. Or Health for All by 2000, a slogan that was popular in the 90s, but few people remember today.
Will Make in India be different? Can Modi deliver? What is he lining up to make this happen? Is it too late to emulate China’s success story in manufacturing? Economists and analysts have been pouring on the subject in recent weeks.
