"It is only possible in a democracy like India that a newly-formed party has won 28 seats in the elections," Sinha told reporters on the sidelines of Jaipur Literature Festival.
    
However, any specific state's development or success model cannot be applied to the entire nation, he said.
    
"There are many areas which are not to be dealt by the state government. However efficient the state government will be it will not deal with those issues, they are to be dealt by the Central government.
    
"For example, state might contribute to foreign trade but the policy would be decided by the Centre," he said.    

However, when he was asked whether his statement also meant that Modi will not be able to transport Gujarat's model to India if he comes to power, Sinha chose not to comment.
