Unemployment allowance, do you support it?The State government of Andhra Pradesh recently approved NTR nirudyoga bruthi (Unemployment allowance ) of Rs.1000/- a month to people who are not having any employment. It was estimated that around 12,00,000 people will be benefitted with this scheme. Today the CM distributed the cheques to 50 people in a meeting. Some other states may follow this now.
But my question is it a good practice to pay money free of cost to some eligible people without providing them any means of earning. I feel by giving money like this the government may encourage laziness in the youth. My Opinion in this respect is a good government should show ways and means to the people of the state or the country to earn their livelihood rather than offering them some small amount as an allowance. A person working otherwise will also try to get this money and the real person may not get the benefit. I consider this as prepoll gimmick. I like to know the opinions of the members.
