The central government has started working on a number of measures simultaneously to deal with the Corona-generated crisis. Withholding the increase in dearness allowance of central employees and pensioners till July 2021, the salary allowances of MPs have been reduced.
The Area Development Fund of MPs has also been suspended for two years. Similarly, many state governments have also started work on several measures. All these measures are part of their strategy to raise resources to deal with the Corona crisis. Politicians, industrialists, employees, businessmen and peasants and laborers all need to contribute to this Yajna. Nation-building is not only the responsibility of the individual, but the collective and cooperative duty of civil society.
Given the prevalence of the Corona crisis, a 'financial emergency' is necessary in the country. Working further in this direction, the government should also suspend expensive projects like smart city and bullet train. He should invest the money received from all such savings in realizing the project of Gram Swaraj.
Gandhiji used to say that India lives in villages. If you want to know India, you have to know the village. This point is relevant even after 73 years of independence. Therefore, to treat India, the treatment of incurable villages has to be given priority. Despite the wide expanse of the industry and service sector, the Indian economy is basically agrarian in its nature.
Two-thirds of the country's population is dependent on farming and related activities. Despite this, farmers, farmers and villages in India are neglected. The number of villagers migrating to cities in search of wages and small jobs is increasing due to the compulsion of farmers to become profit-making enterprises respectively.
To prevent this, extensive decisions have to be taken and a far-reaching strategy to make the villages habitable. The basic elements of village swaraj as propounded by Gandhi ji are equality, self-reliance, swadeshi, decentralization and all-religion equality.
In such a time, more important task than making 'smart city' is to make villages self-sufficient. The strength and development of rural economy is the future of India. By taking concrete steps in this direction, along with ‘Antyodaya’, inclusive and sustainable development can be ensured.
The migration of villagers to cities in search of livelihood can be stopped. It is also possible to treat various diseases like slums, pollution, crime, traffic jams of urban life. In a country like India, self-sufficiency of the village is a guarantee of human dignity. In India, on one side there are high mounds of prosperity and on the other side there are the great pits of lack. There is a need to make it flat and fertile by running the road on this bumpy and desolate land of the Indian social system.
Incidentally, a disaster like Corona has provided the opportunity that we should not only strive to eradicate this incurable inequality, but also be committed to a new social order.
In the economic sector, India needs to adopt a new model. This model will be indigenous and endemic in its nature. It is true that the Corona Crisis has provided a historic opportunity for the wider development and international expansion of its economy in front of India.
As a result of this crisis, there has been a tremendous decline in China's credibility in the world fraternity. India's credibility has increased from the US to European and African countries. This increased credibility is the culmination of India's unprecedented ability to deal with the Corona crisis and its initiative for international cooperation and coordination.
Today, villages in India have become the garbage of urban lifestyles and values. The village has lost self-reliance, communityism and human values. Modern industrial civilization has abducted these foundations of rural life. Today the villages are a hall of envy and misery.
They are budding continents of perversion, squid and individualism. Drug addiction and isolation is the new life practice there. Now there is a golden opportunity to return home to the oldest values identified in the rural culture. Balanced and sustainable development, limited production and moderate consumption is the way of the future.
India should stop scrutinizing Western countries while defining development. The problems of hunger, unemployment, and crime can be solved only by reviving the village-based cottage industries in India and strengthening the small and medium industries.
The strength of these industries is the gateway to prosperity. Antyodaya will also be possible with this. Only by worrying about the last person standing on the margins, the modern state can prove its significance.
