In politics giving sops to electorates and launching populist schemes at the cost of public exchequer, particularly before the elections is a common feature but the government of Aam Admi Party in Delhi under the chief ministership of confrontationist Arvind Kejrival is steadily but gradually trying to launch such populist schemes for the benefit of the backward and down trodden sections of the society, despite the fact that elections of Delhi Assembly are still twenty eight months ahead, even later than the national elections of 2019.

As per the latest news, a policy have been prepared by the Delhi government giving high economic concessions/ facilities to the students of the SC and ST catagory of NCT of Delhi for private coaching in prestigious instititions or coaching centre for future career making in various fields. To start with this policy will be applicable for the first batch of 1000 students of the SC, ST catagory, hailing from the lowest ebb of the society.

As per the guideines the SC/ST students whose parents’ income would be below 2 lakhs annually, the government will bear the full fee expendidure while these who will come under the slab of 2 to 6 lakhs will have to bear the 25% expenditure of the fee where as the government would bear the rest 75 percent.

These concessions to the students of the unprivileged and economically deprived students of the SC, ST catagory will definitely benefit AAP to gain the support base of the dalits of the lowest ebb of the society in Delhi. The AAP chief Arvind Kejrival has earlier too granted reliefs to the Delhites in water, electricity, health and educational sector thus regaining the faith of Delhi populace, particularly those belonging to the lower middle class living in unauthorised colonies, Jhuggi Jhopri clusters and low and medium traders and government servants.

The minorities of Delhi also seem to be happy with him due to its secularist policies and pro minority stand. This has put tremendos dent on the traditional Congress vote bank while BJP claims of its vote bank still being intact.

Through such sops and concessions including passing of a bill for the regularisation of the services of 1500 adhoc n contractual teachers Arvind Kejrival is gradually trying to succed in making solid and credible inroads in the actual vote bank of Delhi i.e the middle, lower middle class and those at the lower and lowest ebb of the society.

The high profile private public schools have cropped up in Delhi, NCR and various parts of the country like mushrooms charging exorbitant tution and capitation fees including transport charges compounded with building funds.

If anything has mushroomed in India to mint excessive money they are the private public schools and high profile hospitals, majority of them having procured lands from the government at extremely cheaper rates with the written promise and commitment that they will also admit the poor and the economically deprived children and patients in their respective schools and hospitals for free education and medical treatments including free surgeries in critical illnesses.

The governments, central as well as states have also issued them official instructions and directives under the apex court’s verdict to entertain the wards and patients of the poor and underpriviledged strata of the society under freeship but it’s hardly adhered to in toto except in selective cases and that to after tremendous harrasment and complex official formalities.

If anything is pursuing in terms of higly profitable busness in the country these days, they are in true sense the private public schools and high profile private hospitals under the garb of medical tourism. Similarly, private medical, engineering and MBA educational institutions having affiliations with distant universities of no significant relevance are luring the rich and middle class students charging excessively exorbitant capitation fees thus arbitrarily violating the established university norms and minting huge profits.

The doctors, engineers and other professionals after paying so much of excessive fees and capitation amount lateron either go abroad or open their own hospitals or nursing homes and mint excessive money as profits instead of serving in government sector or hospitals to serve the poor, underpriviledged or middle class patients thus being of no use for the nation.

The country’ s distant hospitals in the rural areas and hilly regions of the country are therefore today devoid of doctors and surgeons who prefer to serve in the cities, towns or metropolises either in govt hospitals, private clinics, hospitalsor nursing homes or open their own medical centres thus doing a disservice to the country. India produces best doctors, engineers and MBA professionels in the country but they seldom serve in the government either due to the dearth of jobs or their urge to earn handsomely because they have to recover what they had spend on their education and further multiply their income for their future comforts and economic prosperity.

There was a time when the profession of the doctors and teachers used to be considered as a noble one but after the flourishing and mushrooming of private hospital and educational mafia in the country, descipline, morality, ethics and service to the poor and needy has taken a back seat as those involved in these professionshave today become the huge money minting machines than actually serving the true and transparent purpose and objective of service to the society.

This is the main lacunae and the reason that shameful and obnoxious incidents of sodomy, rapes ,subsequent murders of adoloscents and flourishing trade of illegal and unlawful Kidney transplants against huge profits are taking place in various high profile schools and hospitals of the country which are beyond the reach of the have nots.

The ongoing cases of an eight year child of Ryan International, Gurugram and the arrest of a Kidney racket mastermind an ayurvedic doctor Amit Kumar having conducted 50 kidney replacement surgeries against heavy monetory gains in Dehradun are eye opener incidents that force us to hang our heads in same.The crux of the whole story is if you are poor, underprivileged, economically deprived or from the lower middle class, your children have no or negligible say to become the doctor, engineer, civil servant, MBA professional or a big man as it has solely become the privilege of the rich and affluent who later on after acknowledging high positions in the above fields involve themselves in huge profit orientation than to serve the real masses at the grass roots called the real India.

But the moot question is why are the concerned governmental agencies not applying serious checks on them? What do you say friends?
