Comment: Quite fortuitously, my previous article on over-paid tax credit increasing the poor people’s poverty validates my argument that this Govt is quite successful in increasing the settled disadvantage amongst the poor.

    Poverty is a tough nut to crack and needs sustained application of inventive and intuitive solutions to stay ahead of the problem. Modi as a chief minister of Gujarat could have done a lot to prevent th eviolence there but since it helps polarize the votes and positively helps the BJP, he did not act as he should have. In UP, the law reponded quickly and the people responded admirably cutting across the social divide. It helped that instigators like Modi were not around to fan the fires.

    I may be harsh on Modi there but that’s what I can infer from the
    media coverage on the Gujarat violence.

    Thanks for that Vijay. Truth must come first even if it is harsh.
