Read on GD Burning topic: Food Security Bill is turning out to be politics only
 
It is a sad fact that most of the policies and bills implemented in India do not benefit the people at large. The Indian National Food Security Bill was signed into a law on September 12, 2013, and the law aims to provide food grains to around two-thirds of India’s population at a subsidised rate. 
 
As per this law, eligible individuals will be able to purchase five kilograms of rice, wheat, and millet at subsidised rates – rice at Rs 3 per kilogram; wheat at Rs 2 per kilogram; and millet at Rs 1 per kilogram. In addition, pregnant women and certain categories of children are eligible for free daily meals.
 
Sadly, this is not happening on the ground – we still see millions of people go without food in both rural and urban towns and cities in India. 
 
So, it is obvious that the Food Security Bill was enacted to convey to the people of India that the government cares about their sustenance but this is not evident in the actions of the government. 
 
India’s current account deficit stands at Rs 1,341 billion (US$ 21.8 billion) and the Food Security Bill will cost the government over Rs 1,415 billion (US$ 23 billion). So, there is no way that the government can come up with billions of rupees when its current account deficit is widening with each passing day.
 
So, these promises made by the government seem empty because the government does not have the necessary resources to fulfil its promises. This bill was passed to gain votes of the public for the coming elections and to show the citizens that the government is concerned about the welfare of its citizens. 
 
Many critics claim that the government came up with the Food Security Bill in an attempt to divert the attention of the public from the level of corruption that the ministers are embroiled in.
 
If the Indian economy was doing well and if India’s current account deficit is not as wide as it is today, we might be able to give the government the benefit of the doubt.
 
However, given the circumstances and the condition of the Indian economy, we can safely say that the Food Security Bill is a political game being played the government.
