After economic reform, many or almost all left party politician, left academic, unions, etc blame the reform process because poor people have not got benefits from ‘economic prosperity’ that our country has seen last ten or fifteen years.
Here People's Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti says in an interview with BS.
“What are the issues you expect the political parties to address in the election campaign?
The economic issues will certainly dominate the election campaign across the country. The fact is that the economic prosperity that we have achieved in the last decade is not evenly distributed across the society and regions. People and smaller parties like ours are looking forward to the major players to spell out policies that would translate this prosperity into visible results on the ground”.
Let me ask are the ‘economic prosperity’ was achieved evenly and distributed well before the economic reform, which was started in 90s?
It is not surprise, if any of these group answers with odd or muddled narratives.
