NGOs seen as only answer to social reformDNIS News Network -- Economic administrators in the latest Economic Survey recommend that NGOs should be more involved in implementing the government’s social sector schemes.
The Economic Survey says social allocations have not been well spent and delivery mechanisms need evolution. The only concrete suggestion the survey offers for improving this condition is greater participation of NGOs.
The survey is apolitical in nature but this statement is still a jibe at the government as the National Advisory Council is headed by Sonia Gandhi and therefore, is funded by the government. The NAC boasts of half a dozen big names from the NGO circuit!
This creates an uncomfortable scenario in carrying out social sector reforms. The Congress-favoured NGOs would have significant say in deciding how thousands of crores of social sector allocation is spent. This would not be welcomed by most of the ruling politicians and bureaucrats, as they like to have a say over public money!
