Except there isn't one in the BJP. And it also doesn't matter as much as you think who's at the helm. A 'strongman' or whatever will do even if he's uneducated. Modi zi is exactly that. What makes the difference is the administration and it's structure.
Xi has dramatically restructured the Party-state apparatus, giving the Party a greater say in running the country, and breaking down the walls between the Party set-up and the state machinery that had, in the past, given China’s bureaucrats a veneer of insulation in running government and policy. This has reversed a two-decade-long shift that saw a somewhat diminished role for Party bodies. Xi has centralised power by setting up a number of Leading Small Groups (LSGs) that now decide policy on everything from national security to economic reforms. Xi heads the LSG for comprehensively deepening reform, which is now the most important body in setting policy, as well as LSGs for national defence and internet security.
This wall of bureaucracy or 'babucracy' as we call it is the de facto obstacle of this country. Someone should curb and Modi zi did, to an extent. The ruling party should have the last word in deciding and directing key policies. This will mean taking away the "principles of democracy " to this country so it will never happen.
On the flip side, The consequence of centralization is that all responsibilities fall on you too. And since Modi zi shot himself in the foot with demonetization, there is no away he'll be able to gain traction if BJP was to make a transition into even more authoritarian. So yeah in short the 'democractic principles' and hence the delaying and lagging of projects will forever be present in this country
