This is again like bringing in caste reservation without evaluation and for Government’s shortcomings. If one looks at the higher education cess the govt has been collecting past 2-3 years, and yet haven’t made any significant improvement in the government schools, its again passing the buck to the private schools and bringing in the reservation there without stopping the collection of the cess money.

But the globalisation did very little for the BPL section of the population. The ever increasing threat from naxalites popping up every where is standing proof. Rather than speculating over the RTE act, it would be safe to say efforts should be directed towards montioring the flow of these funds. Diverting large amounts of cash to poor sections of society have always been accompanied by rampant corruption and inaccountability, fodder scam is just one example. The target population is extremely unorganized and deprived of basic amenities and security. The congress have had a poor track record when it comes to executing rural plans effectively. Towns like Rae Bareli and Bellary are the quintessential regions that are in desperate need of reform, both ironically have been safe houses for the Gandhi family.

Parents have children and rest is government’s responsibility !! ? Is that your attitude !. For what purpose they are alive (Parents), You don’t have money to live, to feed your children and your self and the story goes on….., but they never realize that they need to limit the number of children they can have and afford based on their economic status.
Remember if you keep apart the Dynastic rule in Congress, It’s because and only because of Our PM Manmohan Singh that what we are today, If he was not there and reforms were not implemented in early 1990’s all of us may have ended up in the streets with begging bowls.
This reform as I understand gives 25 % seat reservation for poorer class children, no capitation fee, 1 teacher for every 30 students ( which I hope will drastically increase teachers numbers in entire country).some of the positive changes which gonna happen because of the this reform….
Don’t be so pessimistic and hopeless.
Pessimism is another form of laziness and laxity…

Bijli Sadak Pani? It is the same Congress govt which raised these slogans. Now they are resorting to Right to Education, Health, etc etc. There is no way to measure the effectiveness of these programs in the real world. These “Rights” are framed in such a way that they declare a sense of “accomplishment” when they are conceived itself. Sonia Gandhi has declared the right to…….., hence it is no longer an issue. Now write it in the record books. Everyone remembers the slogan Garibi Hatao and laud Indira for that, but few really acknowledge that it was just a slogan and 40 years and 8 five-year plans later, we are still one of the poorest countries on the face of this planet.
