A business daily criticised the prime minister for referring to poverty 15 times and economic reforms only once in his Independence Day speech. It said that Atal Bihari Vajpayee had made a better speech in 2000 because he referred to economic reforms 13 times. India shines in the business press, but what about the people? The Vajpayee government paid the price for its hubris in 2004.
