Anjali Bohlken, an assistant professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and Jonathan Darsey, a PhD candidate in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, wrote "Electoral cycles and incomplete public works projects: An analysis of the MPLAD scheme" in Ideas for India.

Read and excerpt:

The second – which we term the ‘incumbent turnover’ channel – posits that the failure to complete projects is driven by the fact that elections frequently produce a change in the identity of the MP representing a given constituency. A newly elected MP may not be able to take credit for projects proposed by her predecessor and may therefore be reluctant to exert much effort to ensure the completion of such projects.
