[03.10.2012]India is a deeply divided country.
Recently, Prime Minister Manmohan singh made a televised speech, after his government took decision to allow 51% FDI in multi brand retail trade. He strongly advocated that foreign investment is very necessary for the economic growth of the country, which in turn will help to eradicate poverty from the country. It is already 21years since the Neo Liberal economic policies are implemented in this country. Manmohan Singh, as the then Finance Minister of the country, introduced these policies in the year 1991. Whether poverty has reduced due to the implementation of these policies? The answer is a very big NO. In fact, the gap between the rich and the poor has widened. This is not what we say, but what the Times of India has reported yesterday. Let us read what it has reported.<>
