The congress government has cleared a Rs.1.25 trillion food security plan, promising food to almost everyone who need it..to make it into immediate effect the Govt. has passed an ordinance.This urgent move to pass the plan is an indicator that the Govt. want to get some significant benefit in 2014 general elections.
So what the bill is all about - The bill proposes to supply 5 kg of rice, wheat and coarse grains at Rs 3, Rs 2, Rs 1 per kg, respectively, every month to three-fourths of rural population and half the urban population in the country.This programme would require more than 61 million tonnes of foodgrain and is expected to cost the government about Rs 1,25,000 crore.But some analysts are worried that it could lead a rise in consumption as it will more disposable income in the hand of beneficiaries, as the same happened with the rural job programme passed in 2005.
While the opposition parties are ready to oppose the ordinance..they would question about the wisdom of passing an ordinance just weeks before the Parliament is scheduled to meet.The BJP has already said that a bill which could cost a lot, must be scrutinized by Parliament first.Other allies are also putting alligations on Congress party to be undemocratic.
So, lets see if in the parliament in-between the shouts..just like other bills it will just be discussed or will be implemented..Whats your opinion about this..
