Other than disinvestment, I didn't see any concrete ideas by you in the article. I think changing the nature of social welfare programs (cash transfers and more funds to states) is a radical idea. I can make similar arguments about getting rid of planning commission, making economics a key part of foreign policy etc. You can't see results in a year but it definitely hasn't been an incremental year.
