Arvind Kumar on India's voters: more nonsense

"We in India claim that we have a mature electorate when it is
>actually the opposite. The average indian voter is usually illiterate
>and   politically ignorant. "

More alienated NRI/elite nonsense it seems to me, and an insult to
Indian democracy.  You may care to read, for example, the chapter by
James Manor in Foundations of India's Political Economy: Towards an
Agenda for India, edited by myself
and William E. James, 1989, 1992.
