With much of the the funds granted have been siphoned off by the moneybags, we cannot expect any miracles to happen in India's Poverty Alleviation Front!
This apart government depriving the livelihoods of the farmers and fisherfolk in favour of mega projects which not only do not pay the fair market price but also short-change the affected people in implementing the promised 'Resettlement and Rehabilitation Packages'!!
These mega projects are further grabbing more land than actually required for the project and also do create far less industrial jobs (directly and indirectly, put together) than they take away from the farming sector!!!
