Growth busts poverty - Times of India
Poverty estimates between 2004-05 and 2009-10 show a sharp reduction in the absolute number of the poor by 52.5 million to 354.7 million. This is encouraging for several reasons. While the new poverty line at lower than the earlier Rs 32 per day benchmark - Rs 22.43 per day for rural areas and Rs 28.65 per day for urban areas - may draw grumbles, the fact is the percen-tage of below poverty line people has declined at double the pace of that bet-ween 1993-94 and 2004-05.

Verbatim

Under the aegis of the highly-educated officials who ran the Planning Commission was created the worst social and physical infrastructure in the developing world. While they planned badly for the average Indian, they planned very well for themselves. Their children went to the best foreign universities while Indian students struggled to get into college even after getting 95 per cent marks. They went to the best foreign hospitals when they got sick, while the average Indian was forced to rely on private doctors because public healthcare was so abysmal. These are things that should have been analysed by us political pundits, but instead we have mostly heard the voices of those who mourn the end of Nehruvian socialism. Why? Could it be because the media continues to treat Narendra Modi as a pariah in Lutyens Delhi — an usurper who does not deserve to spend even 100 days in this exalted space?
