Response to Sugata Marjit

We thank Sugata Marjit for his response to our article. He is right that voter perception is a complex issue and the process through which economic indicators get reflected in voting patterns cannot be reduced to any simple formula. We are, however, a bit baffled by some of the points he has raised.

Marjit says we are “rather quiet” on two questions. First, whether high growth under the UPA has translated into human development – improvements in health and education, for example. Second, whether in voters’ perception, UPA’s crime is not high inflation and corruption rather than sluggish growth.
