ABSTRACT
The article reports on Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's decision to temporarily stop the privatization of industries accumulated by the government. The decision was made after leftist parties opposed his privatization acts. Singh tried to buy them off with a massive new program of guaranteed rural income through public works, even though many saw it as a repetition of some of the worst mistakes of the old economy. Nevertheless, the left has been eroding Singh's efforts at liberalization legislation.
