ANALYZING POST POLITICAL DEVELOPMENT IN MAHARASHTRA
Keywords:Political development, Employment Guarantee Scheme, political economy.
The article examines the evolving character of the Maharashtra state – an important sub-national state in India. State politics changed in 1978 and then again in the 1990s. The current moment (2014) may be viewed as the third shift that pushes the state out of control of Congress. This growth has led to a restless condition of the major governing community, the Marathas. The Maharashtra Employment Guarantee scheme is characterized by the scale, duration, generosité of its financing arrangements and the political complexity of its design among rural public works projects. Its goal is extremely ambitious: to provide jobs flexibly and quickly via public works opening and shutting in response to local, unpredictable weather changes in a weak agriculture economy.
