Among the more prominent initiative taken in governance reforms is that of forging public-private partnership both at policy as well as at administrative level. This chapter critically examines its rationale for delivering public goods and services. While accepting its promotion in physical infrastructure sector, where high levels of capital and technology are demanded, the author questions its relevance in the social sector, where distributive policies are an important part of implementation agenda. However, these partnerships are a continuation of the perspective of de-politicization, technical proficiency for increasing performance efficiency.

Keywords:   pragmatic turn, need of private funds and technology, de-politicization, democratic accountability
