Q.

Everyday we read in the newspaper that the GDP is growing at a good perdentage or the economy is growing well or the industrial output is expected to register a record growth.The govt.feels very happy in highlighting all these figures but what impact does it have on a common man like you & me? I see that in spite of all these the prices of essential commodities continue to soar high and the problems of the common citizen are always growing.The poor people continue to struggle for their two square meals and proper shelter.Your comments please.

The Gross Domestic Product may be growing at a good percentage. But it does not take the entire population within it's purview.It is a relative comparison of figures from earlier times. These figures can be manipulated.As you mentioned, the general economic well being of the populace, is quietly set aside.

Government has finally admitted that they failed to control the prices. But typical blame games of politics is still ON. As far as Sugar prices are concerned, Sharad Babu has put the entire blame on UP Govt.
Let us hope some urgent measures are taken up. Delhi Govt. introduced yellow mattar dal equivalent to Tuvar Daal at reasonable rate of about Rs. 30/- a Kg. Those living below poverty line still enjoy the highly subsidised ration articles. It is middle income group who is struggling to make both ends meet. To worsen the sitation - salaried class have been imposed more perquisite taxes after abolishing FBT and that too to be paid for past nine months !

We can only pray for betterment of situation and perhaps eat a roti less !

Government has to go by academic principle of statistics so that common people can not argue.
What common man should do is increase their purchase power by selling what all they have, including soul.
Sir, common man's problems were never solved in the past in any country nor it will be solved in the future. Common man will remain common man.
Can we change the process of history ?
