Letters: Create jobs, not freebies
With the Food Security Bill, the UPA seems to have decided to make Indian citizens more dependent on it instead of making them more independent.

Why doesn’t the government spend on productive schemes and projects that will generate regular employment, which will, in turn, benefit farmers and the consumers in the long run?
