Cash Transfers: Raman Singh is Right, Centre Wrong.
- Friends,Following is an instance of BJP government of Chhattisgarh doing the right thing.QuoteInstead of joining this cynical bandwagon, the Chhattisgarh Government led by Raman Singh it seems has chosen to stick to the existing public distribution system, which has reportedly steadily improved during his time at the helms. He has appealed to Centre to allow the state government to stay away from Cash Transfers and stick to PDS. This is certainly a commendable development and an example for other states to follow. Raman Singh has argued his decision cogently based on known facts, which academics and activists have tried again and again to drill into Central Government's head. Raman Singh is doubly correct because in his state with larger proportion of tribals and other poor, the cash transfers would prove a greater menace.
