The Indian national elections are underway. One of the biggest Problem of India is the high poverty ratio. Will this election brings any change to the poverty ratio in India. As India like many other countries too, lays down a poverty line as a benchmark for the government’s social welfare schemes. As long as a poverty line set so abysmally low serves as the benchmark for establishing who is entitled to the benefits of public welfare schemes, the government will have to face the demands of the critics. Their concern is a definition of poverty that takes into account the ground reality and grants citizens at least a basic quality of life.
