    Now Sonia's NAC is challenging team Manmohan. Does anybody else have the guts to give such a threat to the Montek Singh, who is at pr with a Cabinet Minister

    Best way is give Montek 320 Rs . and send him in any metro city . Make sure his pockets are empty , he can not contact any body .
    Just keep him alone for ten days . 320 Rs should be enough for him .
    If not - give him 3200 Rs . , ( he is big fish ) , 3200 Rs in his pocket and that is for 10 days in Indian metro . See what happens after that .

    Rs 32 to exist in India!

    Indeed, in Mickey Montek's , Mickey Manmohan's and Silky Sonia's.

    This govt only believes in fudging everything in statistics!

    First these leeches of NAC should be asked to live on Rs 32 and then ask others to do. The NAC wants to make this country as inefficient and throwback into 70's-80's socialist era. Their NREGA has been an utter failure and is the cause of high inflation all over India. This NAC is a very dangerous entity.

    Ideal way to make us a nation on dole and lazy!!

    Reservation, NREGA and what not.

    Give me a womb to tomb and then why should anyone do a honest spot of work?

    And then you want high GDP and superpower status!!

    DD, completely agree with you. NREGA is almost single handedly responsible for the jobless growth that we have witnessed in the last 5 years of high GDP growth. Millions of people have been put on dole and experience with western countries show that once people come under Govt. Dole then they stop working or looking for productive work. It is a very addictive to be under Govt dole and woe to the Govt. who tries to phase it out or reduce the ambit of the dole.
    Is any reasonably intelligent person surprised that the economy is in a tailspin with high inflation coupled with high fiscal deficit.

    Its Rs 32 per person, so for a family of 6 it translates into 192, which is close to what most poor people earn in this country.

    sob,

    How is NREGA a dole? Its employment scheme and not led to joblessness. Recent report says there are not enough jobs under NREGA.

    The govt of India's poverty alleviation programmes are like the Mythical Ouroboros,the serpent that eats its own tail.The govt on one hand extends a sumptuously unscientific minimum support price for the food grains which usually over and above the actual cost of production,which by the time it hits the markets and ration stores has probably tripled, and then wonders why it has to spend more to help the poor afford their daily meal.This is clear case of robbing peter to pay Paul.There must be a more rational approach.
