Is it the right time to remove all the welfare schemes in India?In India most of the budget allocations are going towards unproductive sides like welfare schemes and making the people lazy. We can remove all the welfare schemes and retain just old age pension schemes. During the election time, competitions are going on between different political parties for increasing the pension amount and reducing the pension eligibility age. If we look at different states, they are introducing doles to different communities depending on the percentage of their population in the state for gaining votes. If we continue like this, India may not develop even after 1000 years.
During Covid-19 pandemic time, we realised that we don't have proper medical infrastructure to protect our citizens. Our Defence budgets and technologies are also not matching with our neighbours. Since different countries are trying to move out of China, it is the best time for India to stop all the welfare schemes and pump all the money towards development side. Members, what do say?
