Let the Opposition have a common minimum programEven when most critics literally wrote off Rahul Gandhi, he has, of late being the Central focal point around which the entire Opposition is now trying to do something.
The country needs a change. This particular ruling dispensation is for massive industrialization at the cost of agriculture. It has never been able to explain why jobs have not even increased. Even in organizations that are traditionally known for a very good welfare-oriented approach, we see the most atrocious NEEM scheme of the Central Government in place. This scheme allows some sort of on-the-job training of even tenth standard pass candidates. Why can't the Govt make it compulsory for the employers to give PF? Even this is not given. ESI is not given either. This sort of blatant exploitation goes on.
The Congress and other opposition parties should evolve a common minimum program that takes away all the subsidies from the upper middle class and the rich and then come up with schemes to revive the small and medium industries closed after the disastrous demonetization.
The country can be run by a Congress-led dispensation. . What is important is that one leader should emerge and he should have a clear Vision. The inequalities now apparent should go. The last-minute goodies given by the ruling dispensation have to continue but the new emphasis has to be given to training needs to boost real-time service sector employment. The PDS should be totally revamped to give benefits to the poor and the disadvantaged.
Development should reach everyone. It should not be confined to the rich and super-rich.
