Certain scribes, who blindly oppose ruling, purposefully neglect ground reality

Seriously, it is not the way a responsible critic should function. Actually, it only helps to boost the image of those against whom these irresponsible critics shoot their ire.

It is a well known reality that a good number of scribes are not happy with the present regime of India dominated by the Hindu nationalist faction. Having a different view than that of the regime is definitely not a crime. Actually, scribes must always look governments with critical eyes, not with admiration.

At the same time, it is not advisable to shoot false stories or incomplete stories to project the image of critic. A story, published in a renowned national daily, titled ‘about 85 per cent of Ujjwala beneficiaries in four states still use earthen stoves’, demonstrates how the aforesaid advise made to ensure the existence of the practice of fair journalism is violated due to the existence of blind hatred against the ruling among a section of scribes in the country.

It is important to analyse what a normal person understands from the title, to get a clear picture on what has gone wrong here. Definitely, no person may think that the heading is based entirely an incomplete assumption reached with the help of a sample survey conducted in less than two thousand random people live in those states. Undoubtedly, that survey cannot say conclusively that what is conveyed by the heading developed with the backing of the survey deserves to be treated as a truth and to be projected as the failure of the government.

No sensible will believe that the present government’s Ujjwala scheme has not benefited the rural women. In fact, the story, published under the title, also, though indirectly, admits that a large section of women has benefited from the scheme. However, that portion is positioned in a way that it invites no serious attention.

Seriously, it is not the way a responsible critic should function. Actually, it only helps to boost the image of those against whom these irresponsible critics shoot their ire.

Do you really think that the Ujjwala scheme, aimed to empower the rural women with LPG, has only made little impact in the rural India? It is a fact that like many other popular scheme ever introduced in the country it also has some minor flaws. But, those flaws are not unsolvable. It is learned that the centre continues to perform sincere follow-ups to turn the scheme more beneficial. In that sense, the scheme is actually improving day by day.
