"Growth in Gujarat is not a point of debate," says Amita Shah, director of Gujarat Institute of Development Research. In the five years before Modi took charge, the state's average growth in GDP ( gross domestic product) was 2.8%. Under him, between 2002-03 and 2011-12, it was 10.3%. Only three small states—Sikkim, Uttarakhand and Delhi—have grown faster.
