Tackling worst drought in Tamilnadu

29/03/2017

If I am in power, I will take the following steps to over come the impact of drought,

  1. Not only remove all restrictions on digging bore wells but will also encourage and assist people to dig bore wells. Ground water level will go down but this does not matter, as when it rains the water level will automatically come up. Government will also dig bore wells near water bodies like lakes, canals etc.
  2. Wherever and whenever it is possible, artificial rain(cloud seeding) will be tried.
  3. Water areas like wells, rivers, lakes, canals, water passages will be dredged which may lead to more ground water
  4. farmers will be advised to refrain from planting crops like paddy which require a lot of water and cultivate drought resistant crops like ragi
  5. Without any elaborate application from farmers, their lands will be provided with drip irrigation system and sprinkler irrigation system.
  6. Panchayat, municipal and corporation waste water will be treated and used for irrigation.
  7. As a long term measure, desalination plants will be established along the coast.

Why do we need to adopt capitalist economy?

19/03/2017

We need to adopt capitalist economy, as it releases the full potential of the individual. Socialism locks the potential of the individual. Socialism does not motivate people to put in their best efforts in their work. To take an example, the state government owned and run transport corporations run at loss whereas private bus transport organizations run at profits. It is common to see that a government bus goes empty,  while a  private bus running a few minutes earlier or a few minutes later goes fully packed. The govt. owed Steel Authority of India (SAIL) runs at huge loss while privately owned Tata Steel runs at huge profit. It is good for the country, to privatize government owned companies so that they start earning profits and the money realized for sales, can be utilized for the betterment of the weaker sections of the society.
