सर नमस्कार, सरकार आपदा न्यनीकरण के लिए गांव को आपदा प्रबंधन से जोड़ना चाहती है | पंचायत आपदा प्रबंधन समितियों का गठन ग्राम सभा में करने की व्यवस्था है लेकिन पंचायत बैठकों में ही इसका गठन सीबीओ के सदस्यों को सूचित किए बिना मनमर्जी से हो रहा है | सही जानकारी न होने के कारण ऐसी गतिविधियां हो रही हैं जिससे आपदाएं बढ़ ही रही हैं  और यह इकोनॉमी को भी प्रभावित करती है | इसमें पारदर्शिता कैसे बढ़ेगी ताकि आपदा नुकसान की भरपाई में कम से कम सरकारी खज़ाना लुटाना पड़े |

Sir, a debate in recent times is about who in family should go to work, husband or wife, and who should be home-maker. A better approach is for either of them to go to work, and the other, apart from being home maker, can be home-based, flexi-time entrepreneur, incl trade/ export. 70% of MSMEs are one-person run, some of which become big. This will unleash entrepreneurship, grow Indian economy, generate huge employment, and create wealth and happiness in family. Why not Govt promote this idea?

Sir, there has been considerable time spent on discussing MNREGS - the scheme, its viability, finance allocation & outcome. Is REGS an alternative to improving the agricultural climate? Should more effort not be made towards increasing agricultural output, would co-operative farming be of use. Is it also not time to re-orient the REGS to include food processing industry, handicrafts & handlooms and purposeful utilitarian construction activity to enhance the living standards of the community.

Sir, despite significant progress in the last two years, corruption continues to remain the bane of economic progress / development. Despite ease of doing business, several schemes promoting skill training, opportunities for self employment, financial inclusivity and an improved climate of openness due to digital India, DBT & the use of Adhar, there are still lacunae. People need to rise up against financial wrongs - your view.

Another Corridor to make proposition of Mekong Ganga Corridor can emerge as an Spur in Samstipur of Bihar from Eastern economic Corridor as mentioned in previous post. Samastipur-Saharsa-Siliguri-Silchar North East Economic Corridor extending to Maynamar-Thailand- Viyatnam- Laos- Kambodia-Singapore-Malysia can ride Buddhist Tourism, Trade and Commerce giving India tremendous Geo-strategic and Economic Advantage. Question is can we think Big and deliver on the same?
