Peak Modi?

You may have missed it over the weekend, but I’m getting out in front and calling Peak Modi as of Saturday:


Mr. Modi appears to be a bit of a control freak:

He’s introduced a Biometric Attendance System to monitor the comings and goings of some of India’s despised Babus (bureaucrats). You can see it in action here:

He also has arranged to have “fitted the vehicles of party members campaigning for state legislative elections with GPS units, gathering real-time evidence that they are, in fact, on the trail and not lingering in hotel lounges.”

Too bad they didn’t have this kind of equipment in Gujarat in 2002!!
