Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi never had a high opinion of the Planning Commission, an institutional vestige of the country’s attempts to mimic the Soviet command economy during the infancy of its independence more than half a century ago. As leader of the industrial powerhouse state of Gujarat, he stunned buttoned-down members of the commission last year by turning up at a meeting with a video that accused them of high-handedness and hobbling states with one-size-fits-all policies. Now, as prime minister of the country, he looks set to clip the central agency’s wings, or perhaps abandon it altogether.
