India: decline of the left, success of the nationalist right

In India, elections were held in several states and won by Prime Minister Modi’s BJP. What do these victories augur for next spring’s legislative elections? What are the underlying reasons for the decline of the social democratic left and the political success of the Indian nationalist right? Mohan Gopal, a renowned jurist who has taught and worked at Harvard and the World Bank, former Secretary General of the Rajiv Ghandi Foundation and advocate at the Supreme Court of India, offers his analysis.

He is interviewed by Thierry Aube, Director of the Asia-Pacific Observatory of the Fondation Jean-Jaurès, and Philippe Humbert, a member of the Observatory and a specialist on India.
