India can’t be micromanaged: Omar to Modi
New Delhi: It is impossible to micro-manage India or run it as a “one man show”, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah commented on Sunday as the Modi Government completes one year in office.
Omar recalled Modi’s stewardship of Gujarat and said, “Running a state and running a country are two very different things. It’s tough enough to micro-manage a state, even a state like Gujarat. It’s impossible to micro-manage a country and a country the size of India you can’t do it.
“And therefore if every decision has to be sort of looked at a micro level right up to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), it’s not going to happen,” Omar told PTI here.
On the performance of the Modi government, he said “…
The Prime Minister and his ministers are victims of their own campaign. They raised expectations to a place where delivery was always going to be difficult and impossible.”
Omar said a year was enough time for them to realise that it doesn’t work.
On the internal front as far as J&K is concerned, he expressed clear disappointment saying, “For me the biggest test of this Prime Minister was helping the people of J&K affected by the floods of last year. And in that this government has single-handedly failed the people of the state.”
