Authors: Harsha Sharma
Mahatma Gandhi once said:
“Poverty is the worst form of violence.”
The ideology of Mahatma Gandhi for poor must have been in the minds of the planners of MGNREGA program when they renamed it after him on 2 October, 2009. It is remarkable by the policy planners that the essential part of economic and social development should reach the poor and needy. Special care should be provided to the Dalits (SCs) of India. The largest democracy of the world has the largest underprivileged population. According to census of India 2011, the population of the nation is nearly 1.21 billion. Uttar Pradesh is the most populated Indian state. Dalits constitute 16.64% of total Indian population and once again Uttar Pradesh has the biggest number of scheduled castes population1.
