The lacklustre delivery on developmental promises from the Modi govt is becoming more apparent
As the page turns on 2018 and a new year is born, anti-establishment politicians in power around the world have themselves become part of the establishment. Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary, in power for three successive terms now; Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, first Prime Minister, then President of Turkey, over the last 15 years; and Donald Trump, President of the US, now in the third year of his presidency, cannot claim to be outsiders crusading against the political elite anymore. The anti-establishment movement can broadly be termed to be about 10 years old, dating back to the global financial crisis.
