PM’s Penchant to Capitalist Policies

Readers Pulse

Aruna Roy’s decision to quit the National Advisory Council is the unfortunate corollary to the UPA government’s denial to pay minimum wages to MGNREGA workers.  The Prime Minister’s defiance to pay heed to his party chief Sonia Gandhi’s letter asking him to honour the promise made to the aam admi before elections, and his audacity to disregard the interjection over the issue by two High Courts, speak volumes about his penchant to the capitalist policies. The neoliberal economic reforms have indeed transformed the rich into super-rich and also helped many techno-savvy middle class people. But his promise that the benefits would ‘trickle-down’ to the poor had been a complete disaster.  At least at the eleventh hour of his tenure, Dr. Singh must try to bring a cheer to the faces of millions of the poor in the country by giving their due minimum wage.
