India still trying and failing to beat poverty
The planning commission has accepted the Tendulkar committee report which suggests that 37 per cent of Indian population still under below poverty line.
IT HAS been more than 60 years since independence but still many of our people are living below the poverty line. The Planning Commission has accepted the Tendulkar committee report which suggests that  37 per cent of Indian population still under below poverty line. Who is to blame? According to Arjun Sengupta report  77 per cent of India’s population live in less than Rs 20 per day.

 
The Nehru- Gandhi family has ruled India for the most part since independence and the result is in front of us. I want to ask this UPA government and pro-congress media who show only the achievements of congress led Government but not their failure, why they don’t reflect on this serious issue of poverty.

 
India is developing, GDP is increasing, lots of foreign investors are investing their money in India, people are moving to urban areas for jobs and better lives. But when we think about the villages where most of our population resides, the situation is exactly opposite.
 
People are still struggling for daily meals. Isn’t this shocking? I agree that our Government makes good decisions but we don’t need decisions, we need implementation wherein every issue gets addressed. After the horrific incident, where 76 security men lost their lives, our Home Minister said ‘I take all responsibility for this massacre and I am ready to step down’.
 
Was it a time to step down or take some strong action? After that massacre a media team visited the place and upon questioning one local villager, came to know that there have been no visits by any government official in this region and the basic necessities are not available. So Chidambaram the ground reality is even worse.

 
India is first in milk production, second in rice and wheat production, and one of the fastest growing economies in the world but still 40 per cent of our people are below the poverty line. Is it not shameful?
