India gets stuck in anti-corruption crossfire
India is at risk of getting stuck in anti-corruption crossfire. After chasing down errant tycoons, authorities this week arrested opposition veteran and former finance minister, P. Chidambaram. The dramatic move, months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s landslide win, will fuel fears of factionalism. With the economy cooling and plenty of trouble spots to tackle, it also raises concerns over the unwanted consequences of an aggressive cleanup.
