Bt here the policies of government is according to people which are really appreciated by many other states. I think other state also follow these ground schemes which r good for their people.

    there has been a 34 per cent increase in the number of Indians having a net worth of Rs 1,000 crore or more. These individuals collectively own $719 billion, which is about a quarter of the nation's GDP.

    So true n BJP is just interested in looting the nation. Statues costin crores of rupees instead of feeding the poor. They will not go unpunished by the creator.

    It's a sad and shameful truth . He is 100% right. He is from Belgium, a beautiful country, where there is no poverty, where people's needs and education comes first. Just like him, there are several non Indians , who have left their country and come to India to help the poor and the animals. In India , if there's a road accident, people will gather around with their mobile phones to video shoot the dying person, rather than helping. Govt can spend millions on various other things, but not on the people's needs. Kids are being kidnapped and forced into begging, that ok by the police and govt. And then proudly we condemn these helping hands by saying ,it to convert them. People who leave India and settled overseas, giving up their Indian citizenship, why do they do it? Did they not convert from Indians to some other nationality.

    Today's deplorable conditions of the tribal folks is mainly attributed to the millennia old evil caste system and untouchability as its obvious outcome. A very little has so far been done for the development of these indigenous ancient people . If anyone makes an effort to do some good for them, the right wing fascist hndu extremist govt immediately tags them missionaries trying to forcibly convert them.
