Good Governance: Never on India's Radar

Madhav Godbole (Author)

The book argues that over the decades since India’s independence, good governance has never been a salient feature of political life. It makes an attempt to examine diverse areas and aspects of public life such as corruption, crony capitalism, the rule of law, secularism, institutional integrity and freedom of expression and points out that changes in policies can bring about a marked difference in the manner of governance. A thought-provoking work, it delves into the problems plaguing Indian politics and showcases the sharp deterioration in governance in various fields. It takes up aspects like illegal migrations, terrorist violence, the functioning of the judiciary, the governance deficit and democratic institutions. It examines the provisions of the Constitution, bills and reports of committees, and comments on the actions of the government at the Centre and in the states.
