India’s poor

Suriya Qureshi

Is it true that India is a rising economic power? Consider this: there are 195 million people living in absolute poverty, about one-fifth of all humanity.

Nearly 195 million people are undernourished in India accounting for one-quarter of the world’s total of 795 million poor people, according to a report in the Time of India last month. With a Hindu Nazi government in power that wants to give more incentives to business, the number of poor in India is likely to rise. There is an alarming increase in the number of farmers committing suicide; this fact is conveniently glossed over as Hindu Nazis project an image of modernity. India’s economic progress is a massive fraud.
