Reforming and Restructuring Indian Political Process

Two days have passed and there have been no postings ,so I am taking the liberty in giving a start to the discussions.

The answer to your first question:-

Since adoption of our Constitution in 1950, India has been a welfare state. Every year, huge resources have been allocated to ensure that the poorest of the poor gets a better life. In the process, those higher up in the social ladder were also to benefit automatically. During the successive 5 year plans , this has been the main objective of our policy makers. So during the last six decades, a number of schemes have been lunched to ensure social and economic development of the most vulnerable section of the society. If one goes through the voluminous detailed documents available on the various measures that have been taken to reach these noble objectives, we find that no aspect has been left out. The schemes covered food, health, education , employment etc.

Now when we look back and take stock of the situation , what do we find?

There is widespread hunger and poverty, affecting over 200 million of our citizens. A large number of them have no roof over their head, continue to be illiterate and somehow manages to remain alive. The infant mortality rate in India is same as that of sub Saharan Africa. India continues to be the home for the largest number of poor people in the world.

What has gone wrong? Is it our vast increase in population, or is it corruption and faulty planning that has resulted in this poor performance.Do we lack the expertise and trained manpower to bring in the required socio economic development of the poorest of the poor.

Other members may kindly respond to carry forward the discussion.....
