How Congress Govt changed my Village

My grand mother and relatives came to attend a cerimony here at hyderabad when i asked them whome will they vote? They were not happy with the existing government. They said "Previously when wanted some work to be done there were always somebody at the corner of the street waiting for work. Now also there are people but they are not willing to work !!!"

My God! what kind of a statement is this! They are still free, but dont want to work??? "Yes!" the answer came. The present govt had given loans as much as 3Lakhs to each farmer at 25 pise interest (i.e. 0.25%) and in the loan amount farmers are given 50% subsidie (i.e. need not pay) in the remaining amount the farmer can pay at their will.

At first it sounds good! atleast the farmers are finally improving their lives, but wait! are they really improving?? It sounded like, previously they ate nukalu (cheap rice) and now Basumathy rice. Sowhat, did things improve?? Are they in a position to sustin themselves if the crop fail again/ famine rules the village? i dont think so. I dont even think the government is looking at this point.

For me one rupee is one unit of work. If you are giving some body(x) 3L it means u are giving somebody(Y) elses 3L units of work fruits to him. Now the qn: what is the farmer doing with it? I have not heard any farmer saying that this loan is really improving their lives, nor does the govt shows some development in them.
