Modi at 100 days: First milestone



A period of 100 days in power is too short to judge any Prime Minister, more so when the man in question, Narendra Modi, had sought five years to show results, and in some sectors such as infrastructure, ten years. But this is certainly long enough a period to judge the direction of the man and his government.
