Ease of doing business in Tamilnadu

The Economist says, "MAHATMA GANDHI believed it was difficult to conduct business in a strictly honest way. In India it has become hard to conduct business any way at all."

Among the states in India, some states make it even more difficult to do business. According to a World Bank survey conducted recently, the state of Tamilnadu does not figure in the first ten states for ease of doing business. The opposition parties in the state do not use this information to criticise the government. Is this because making it easier to do business is considered as an indicator of corruption?

Are we reminded of George Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' ?
