  • Descrição: Indian democracy is being globally acclaimed for its ‘twin successes’, namely achieving an impressive market reforms-driven economic growth in recent years notwithstanding ongoing global recession, accompanied with a consistent practice of democracy. Against the grain of such celebration of the ‘widening’ and ‘deepening’ of democracy in India under the shadow of globalization, the article argues that even though competitive politics is being understood as an essential ‘democratic minimum’ that cannot be dispensed with at the same time the concurrent depoliticization of policy process also ensures that it need not intervene in the substantive issue of economic policy. The article makes this point by visiting India’s electoral politics since the initiation of neo-liberal economic reforms and taking note of the marked disconnect between the two.
