This is factually not correct. This  misperception is due to the inability to appreciate that while power has  constitutionally been devolved from the center to the periphery, how these  powers work in practice depends on the structural context in which they operate.  This inability to separate the constitutionally legal from the operational has  led to the distorted perception that power has not been devolved.

While the voting across all the 26 constituencies of the state remained peaceful on April 30, it did not turn out to be a good day for BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. On directions of the Election Commission of India (ECI) the Ahmedabad crime branch on Wednesday filed an FIR against Modi for poll code violation. The action was initiated against Modi as he had held a press meet near the polling booth in Ranip area of Ahmedabad after casting his vote. All through out the interaction he kept brandishing his party symbol ‘lotus’ along with his inked finger. The Ahmedabad crime branch in investigating the case.
