The office of Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi on Sunday night, hours before he takes over as Indias 15th prime minister, indicated a smaller size of the next government and clubbing of ministries for smarter governance.
A note from Modis secretariat said the PM-designate had made a dent in ministry formation by adopting, for the first time, a guiding principle of Minimum Government and Maximum Governance.
It is a good beginning in transforming entity of assembled ministries to organic ministries. It will bring more coordination between different departments, will be more effective and bring a speed in process, the note stated.
The focus is on convergence in the activities of various ministries where one cabinet minister will be heading a cluster of ministries working in complimentary sectors.

Club? Like baby seals?
I thought it meant that he liked to hang out as Studio 54.
Thanks BenLurkin. The BJP grew out of the Janata People’s party, which had a shaky grasp of governance in the late 1970s, then reconsolidated after time the Ayatoilet took over Iran, and the Iran-Iraq war broke out.

I hear ‘Night Moves’, by Bob Seeger, but not that kind of clubbing.
That's a dictatorship
Correct. Size of government is but one thing that defines “big government”; overreach of government irrespective to size in terms of departments/manpower is the other.
That's great, tumbler
Can we clone him?
This is Indian English. Club would mean unify. As in joining them into a club, not hitting them over the head with a club.
I used to see ads in an Indian publication in California where men were looking for a “homely” wife. To them, it meant “home-loving,” in other words, not an ugly woman, but somebody who wanted to stay home and keep house for them.
That’s why translators talk about the “Englishes.”
As chief minister of Gujerat state, Modi made all other states in India green with jealousy. More industries grew in Gujerat because Modi cleared regulatory and bureaucratic impediments. Mr. Tata created auto manufacturing plant in Gujerat in record time.
Yes, so? China and Germany have also had economic miracles without embracing the US-style free market. Doesn’t mean that they aren’t distorted, but they are what they are.
China has quasi free market...
Over 1 million new millionaires created in the last decade or so. IOW China is allowing entrepreneurs to get rich.
All a means to an end. Quasi-free is not free.
Are you saying India should have stuck with the congress party? Is the rise of BJP a mistake? Will Indian economy get worse or better?
Is the goal to improve the economy at all costs, even to create a bubble-laden socialistic economy that will explode later?
Bad enough the liberals abandoned the free market in the USA to try that here, with disastrous results.
Congress = more socialist. Believes in more central government power.
BJP = more capitalist. Believes in less central government power, privatization.
Our ideal is to provide extensive facilities for education from the lowest grade to the highest; to mold our educational purpose and to draw out the best qualities that be hidden in our youth, and to train them intellectually physically for service in all spheres of national activity in towns, villages, cities. Our ideal is to make the widest provision for sound liberal education Our ideal is to make our universities and educational institutions the home of liberty, sane progressive thought.Then again, you probably dont think that Red China is communist either. What they have done to the USA (with the help of the liberal politicians in DC) is inexcusable.
I am going by what Mody accomplished in Gujerat state. It is more prosperous than other states. Probably the main reason he won. Other states want him to do the same thing for the whole country what he accomplished in Gujerat, the state where I grew up. I have seen the progress first hand.
Also, I do not give much weight to what somebody said in 1936. This is year 2014.
So leopards really change their spots? That’s what John Kerry and his ilk think.
If any state or country does not follow free market principles but instead keeps socialism alive, then there is a devious element to whatever economic success they achieveand inherent weakness. Like I said, the liberals in the USA discovered that with their property and tech bubbles, and that aside from the much borrowing and spending. People like Modi are going down the same path.
