    Yes. Democracy and Development both can go together and it’s the need of the our for a country like India. If we observe India since independence, first FYP to Bengal famine followed by Hindu rate of GDP growth and very low Per capita income are the only economic history we can note a few. Today India as a largest and oldest surviving democracy must adhere to it’s development theme and policies like Make in India, AMRUT mahotsav 2022 etc. The new India our prime minister talking today is only possible if it is having back bone support of development.
