United Progressive Alliance (UPA) have been making commitments and techniques on improved health care and enhancing rural development for quite some time, but no such progress is basically seen. The breakthrough of the well being care system is an try and help the poor folks of the nation.
Our country is a growing nation which still has below 70% rural protection and 77% living below the poverty line. As poverty covers a big section of the nation, so growth of the individuals is essential. Every government tries its finest to herald latest improvement initiatives that will help the poor individuals to put a step ahead towards good living. Congress has initiated many packages that assist in the advance of the situation of poor folks of the nation. One among that dependable program is Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA).
It’s a program that goals to ensure the right to work and likewise ensure the livelihood security in rural areas by allotting not less than 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial yr to every family whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work. This program was launched in February 2006 and is claimed to be a brainchild of Sonia Gandhi, president of Congress. This is also considered as the principle causes for UPA to be re-elected in the year 2009.
But this program is now delivering bother to the celebration and to those leaders who were involved in it. In keeping with a report submitted by the reputed English daily newspaper Economic Times, an analysis of data from the MGNREGA management information system in districts represented by top and promising Congress leaders reveals that there are delays in payments to about 50 percent of the beneficiaries.
