From rowdyism to revdism
Ever wonder how your state's handling its money? In today's story, our friend Banu has a chat with us about the current state budgets across India.
Let's start with Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and West Bengal. They've got some big debts - kind of like owing a lot on your credit card. We're not just throwing out scary numbers — we'll also explain how this impacts essentials like schools and hospitals.
Now, let's consider the entire country's debt. India owes about 56% of its annual income. It may sound complex, but our piece breaks it down in a super easy way. We even compare it with other major countries, giving you the full picture.
We also talk about places like Kerala, where they're facing challenges in funding essential things like school lunches, and Tamil Nadu, dealing with a significant electricity bill. Then there's Delhi, the capital city, with its unique story involving government spending and promises.
But hey, it's not all tough news.
We also discuss how some smart moves today can pave the way for a better future: https://swarajyamag.com/economy/revdism-has-replaced-rowdyism-as-the-new-menace-in-indian-politics-part-ii-the-economics
