The only thing he has going for him is his (kind of) libertarian platform. We'll have to watch out for AAP to see the kind of government they form in Delhi, because as of now- its AAP vs BJP.

AAP is accountable, transparent, trustworthy but socialist.

Modi is libertarian. If a little authoritarian.

Aren't those antonyms?

Yeah, Modi is an extensive debate in itself. His policies are libertarian- no income tax, sales tax, excise tax- for one. Spurring investment in the country by loosening the restrictions on industries. Same in agriculture. One of his election cry is , "Less government, more governance."

But he, as a person, is pretty authoritarian. There was one incident where he sent some workers to the house of all the top businessmen evading income taxes and told them to play clarinet outside their houses to shame them into paying up (because court cases against all of them would have taken up a lot of time.) If he wants a particular project to succeed, he'll do everything he can to invest in that, even at the cost of other projects. Plus, apparently in the state he's governing in- there are a lot of restrictions on the media.

I agree with most of that, except while the government exists I do believe subsidizing agricultural products has its uses.

But he, as a person, is pretty authoritarian. There was one incident where he sent some workers to the house of all the top businessmen evading income taxes and told them to play clarinet outside their houses to shame them into paying up (because court cases against all of them would have taken up a lot of time.)

That is pretty original and amusing, although I can see why it might be unethical to some, haha.

I am only moderately interested in the topic, but if you can give evidence for this it would be appreciated, just to verify what you are saying. Although if it's true, it seems to me he'd be more a conservative, as in being economically liberal and restrictive on civil liberties.

I'll drop in links when I get on a PC, basically the election commission found that there had been huge paid media circles during the Gujarat elections( Gujarat being the state where he's the chief minister). You can google it too, I guess.

And being a conservative/ liberal is a pretty comparative term- its meaning is geograpy specific. India was initially a socialist country, so being a conservative government in India means being economically socialist. Modi is technically is liberal, but the terms aren't that pravalent in India.
