Narendra Modi Needs to Press the Gas Pedal on Reforms

In this Livemint article,  Vivek Dehejia, Resident Senior Fellow at IDFC institute, hopes that the Modi government intends to stick to its resolve of reforming petrol prices even though it might be politically unpopular as well as paves the way for more such reforms. 


He writes "In my judgement, the government has a window of about a year, perhaps a little less, before all major political parties start gearing up for the 2019 general election and the reform window will once again close until after the election. With the major one-off policy shocks of demonetization and the goods and services tax (GST) having more or less worked their way through the economy, and with the thumping election victory in Uttar Pradesh having put wind in their sails, there is no reason at this point to delay unfinished reforms."
