    In terms of development, UP better placed than Gujarat: Akhilesh Yadav
    Last Updated: Thursday, January 30, 2014, 22:00

    Firozabad: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that in terms of development, his state was in a better position than the Narendra Modi led Gujarat.

    Addressing Yuva Shakti Sammelan here Akhilesh said that Modi claimed development in Gujarat, but UP was placed in a better position than his state.

    He claimed that large number of welfare schemes being run in UP was not being done in any other state including Gujarat.

    The CM said that Modi got 15 years to develop Gujarat, but the present SP government has set an example within its two year rule.

    He said that there was no field where SP government was not working.

    Yadav said that several schemes like distribution of laptops, kanya vidyadhan, free treatment to poor and free water for irrigation have hugely benefited the people of the state.

    Yes I agree with you, welfare schemes are not the way forward. In A.P also there are lot of schemes like 1 kg rice for 1 rupee, etc..etc,.... ,

    But welfare schemes in Health sector and education are welcome.

    In A.P there is a scheme called 'Arogya Sri' which is providing free treatment for poor in corporate hospitals. All they have to do is call 108.

    In TN Also, lots of Populist schemes were introduced by DMK which was followed by ADMK(now it has been so for three years).. Guess what happened?

    With all the finances directed towards welfare shit and not on actual needs for development like Infrastructure- roads, power and such, the State GDP growth came crashing down to 4.3% which is less than the national average for the first time, in may be a decade!

    If only Tamilians were as smart as the Gujaratis:tsk:????

    And Ultimately, the Middle class tax money will be given indirectly to Rich corporates through the govt. How lovely?! This is how the Socialist govts usually work and this is how they create elitism!

    So you want the poor to die? Doesn't the state have some moral obligation to provide for the welfare of its poorest citizens?Keep in mind that you live in India (one of the poorest countries in the world) , not a developed country. Certain socialistic principles are required in India.

    Corruption exists every where and in large proportion. But at the same time one also has to look into the change "Arogya Sri" has brought to the poor. There are lakhs of people who were benefited by this scheme. It is a successful scheme.

    You understand/know neither politics nor economics. So learn both before you comment!

    Do you disagree on ethical principles? Should the poorest be left to fend for themselves? It would be more efficient to just gas them all, wouldn't it?

    @athiesthindu

    Listen Kid, Indian percapita income is 1/25th that of Canada. SO we dont have the luxury of static economic conditions offered by the welfare states! What we need is full blown growth in the economy at the rate of 10-12% GDP per annum, for atleast 20 years and a growth of 8-10% per annum for another twnety. Then we can talk about welfare and other such glorious ways of destroying the economy

    As I said, you understand neither economics nor politics.

    Its much more efficient to encourage Private sector(by investing in infrastructure) and employ them in that ,than gas them:rolleyes:

    India is a socialist state and not an avowed capitalist state.

    Indian Govt and even society has a moral obligation to not only the poor but also to the backward sections, sections which have been ostracized for many millenia.

    Certain social welfare schemes are required but not so much as to bankrupt the treasury.

    Why can't you do both simultaneously? You have simply created a false dichotomy. Social welfare policies should go hand in hand with economic liberalization but one cannot simply ignore the plight of the poor people.

    1. Corruption is a direct result of Socialism/welfare

    2. Enjoy the benefits while it lasts. But mark my words, GDP growth crash will occur sooner than later. I think AP is the first state to follow TN's foots steps on welfare. Now that TN has faced the music, AP cant be that far behind:thumb:

    If you were given an opportunity to implement new policies which would help poor people,

    What would be your take on Social Welfare policies and economic liberalization? what would be your actions?

    Yes both should be done simultaneously, the schemes for the poor should be there in health sector and education. It is the responsibility of the Govt. to uplift the poor and the oppressed.

    Regarding the schemes which offer freebies like tv's, etc....etc.. should be stopped. These schemes only make people lazy.

    A welfare schemes should be there to create an opportunity for the needy and poor so that they can thrive and work for the betterment of the society and country.
