"It looks that Government is working only for 2014 elections"
 
Just before the elections, the government makes many promises, sometimes false promises, to entice people into voting for it. It happens in every country, not just in India. Before the 2014 elections, many government bodies made their budget plans and their vision for India very clear. Although their optimism is commendable, their unawareness of reality isn’t. Recently, Finance Minister P Chidambaram announced in this budget speech that India will set up its first public sector women’s bank with an investment of Rs 1,000 crore. This revelation comes months after a huge protest in New Delhi on women’s rights and their safety. How will a women’s bank benefit the economy? Many experts are clueless as to how gender-specific banks can fuel the economy. 
 
There are benefits of having a women’s bank – more employment opportunities can be created, and more women-run businesses may emerge. However, this move is seen by many as a way to appease the women in India so that the current government can be re-elected.
 
Similarly, Indian Railways released the Railway Budget 2013 – 2014, claiming that it will enhance customer experience by having Wi-Fi in trains, improving amenities in train stations and trains, and by ensuring women’s travel safety. Indian Railways has been making false promises for many years and this year is no different. In 2009, Mamata Banerjee had announced that Indian Railways will transform 50 train stations in India and provide world class facilities to the citizens. Do any of our train stations have state-of-the-art facilities or exude a world class image? Hardly.
 
Politicians are known for making false promises before elections. And once elections are over, they return to their nonchalant attitude. The government needs to solve pressing issues such as lack of cleanliness and security in train stations before jumping onto the ‘3G’ bandwagon.
 
Every year, we pin hope on the government. This year, Indian Railways made a claim that it will increase its employment by 1.5 lakhs. And the agency has shown to us that it is not a false promise. In fact, the government has started recruitment process in 60 cities. Let us hope that the government continues with its plan and not abandon it mid-way.
 
So, although the Indian government has a record of not living up to the expectations of the citizens, let us hope that this year, it is different. Although most of the evidence shows that the government is only working for 2014 elections, there is a ray of hope that the government may be interested in the welfare of the citizens. In fact, the government is planning to increase the expenditure on the poor by imposing higher taxes on the rich. Only time will reveal the government’s true face.
