From Dole to De­vel­op­ment

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos ‘But Do These Num­bers Add Up?’ (Feb 6), Mythili Bhus­nur­math rightly said that sta­tis­ti­cal es­ti­mates have been ma­noeu­vred in the Eco­nomic Sur­vey and the Bud­get. This is not new as other po­lit­i­cal parties in power played with the num­bers favourable to their agenda. The pa­ram­e­ters of poverty es­ti­mates by the ear­lier gov­ern­ment dif­fered quite a bit. The ques­tion is not the num­bers game but the spirit be­hind the Bud­get that is directed to­wards a par­a­digm shift from dole to de­vel­op­ment and from al­lo­ca­tion to per­for­mance.
