in India faces a severe threat from the penchant for
centralization and uniformity that the Hindutva forces
have and which Modi articulated in the Central Hall
on July 1 through his misleading analogy between the
GST and the integration of princely states by Vallabhbhai
Patel during Independence. Such comparison puts a tax
reform and democratic revolution on the same platform,
confusing biased centralization with unity of the country.
