‘Make in India’: the Foxconn way?

So, will ‘Make In India’ be successful? It could very well be if the central and state machineries combine to pass laws which takes away farmers’ land, leaving them landless and thus forcing them to become labourers; it could be successful if they weaken labour laws to the point that the Indian labour becomes sitting ducks for any company aided by FDI to walk in and exploit them to the hilt. Yes, it could be ‘successful’. But is that a win for us?
