The core part of a new strategy to ramp up economic progress of India
involves aggressive promotion of industrial and infrastructure growth,
without bottlenecks, backed by a resurgent national security agenda.

Can these objectives be sustained while neglecting their repercussions
to environment, human rights and food sovereignty?

Leo Saldanha and Bhargavi Rao of Environment Support Group in
Bangalore India deliberate whether the new Government's reform agenda
is inchoate, incoherent, or if it is the right way forward for India?
