Will it be a great idea to provide free or very low cost food grain to a large section of population?
The National Advisory Council headed by the real political boss Sonia Gandhi has recommended free(or very low cost) food grain supply to the abjectly impoverished population of India. This is estimated to be above 50 million tonnes costing about $20 billion. The government spends $80 billion every year on its employees' salaries most of whom are corrupt, do not provide any service and try their best to sabotage any incipient attempt at freeing up the economy.
Wouldn't it be a brilliant idea to sack 25% of government employees and spend the money saved on providing food grains to the starving undernourished millions....time for Sonia Gandhi to bite the bullet?
If this is done, significant road blocks would vanish, the economy would grow sufficiently faster to not need so much free grains in a few short years.
