Punjab has the lowest level of hunger in India.Less than one-fourth of children below the age of five are underweight, although Punjab "came off worse than countries like Gabon and Vietnam when measured on the index.
Union Minister Manish Tewari on Saturday said that Punjab's economy was on the verge of collapse because of the "mismanagement" by the state government and and demanded a white paper in this connection. Alleging that the state's economy has deteriorated in the last six years, he said, "The debt of Rs 1 lakh crore on Punjab is too difficult to explain. Punjab's economy was in doldrums for a long time and now it is on the verge of collapse." The Union Information and Broadcasting Minister said, "The situation clearly shows that the SAD-BJP government is incapable of managing the state's economy and they must issue a white paper as to what went wrong," he said.
