EC unhappy with NITI Aayog VC’s remark against Congress’ NYAY scheme
The Election Commission of Indian has expressed unhappiness in the way the Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog recently reacted to the NYAY scheme proposed by the Congress party in its latest manifesto as a main poll promise.
The EC has remained the Vice Chairman that the government servants should be impartial in their conduct and their public utterances.
Though the VC has tried to defend his position by saying that he responded as a economist not as a government servant, the EC has declined to accept his argument as satisfactory.
The VC has observed that the VC has violated the Model Code of Conduct. The VC has been asked to refrain from the repetition of such violations.
The Nyuntam Aay Yojna is the most impressive scheme which was proposed by the Congress party through its manifesto this time. It is a welfare scheme which is expected to help the bottom 20 per cent of the population. It assures a guaranteed minimum income of Rs 72,000 each annually for those families come in the bottom 20 per cent of the population.
The main allegation is that the country has no adequate resources at present to run such an expensive scheme.
