Will Modi 3.0 Eclipse Nehru 3.0?

On June 4, Narendra Modi became the India's first Prime Minister since Jawaharlal Nehru to win three consecutive terms. Unfortunately, Nehru’s third term was a short-lived one. He died 25 months into his third term. While Nehru championed socialism and creation of public sector enterprises, Modi believes in maximum governance and minimum government. Today, India enjoys far greater economic and military clout. There is a strong possibility, Modi's third term will eclipse Nehru's third term.
