So, Narendra Modi has won another election. But the question that whether he will be nationally acceptable still exists.
Interestingly, the chief minister who supposedly fought the elections on the plank of development, has lost Sanand (the auto hub made famous by Retiring Tata's Nano plant after the company left West Bengal) and Hansalpur (Maruti's plant was supposed to have come there). Both these areas have been prime beneficiaries of development -- land prices have shot up benefiting thousands.
But Modi's loss in those areas begs a question -- can Indian elections be won on the 'development' agenda? -- Remember BJP's India Shinning fiasco???
