Illiteracy is another big challenge for India. About one-third of its population is still illiterate. They do not know how to read and write. This puts our head in shame. In addition, the standard of living of the common masses is very low.
Moreover, illiteracy and poverty provides a breeding ground for the growth of many social evils. Illiteracy makes people an easy prey to various evils. If I become the Prime Minister I would work hard for the promotion of education.
I would make education mandatory for all. India is mainly an agricultural country. More than fifty per cent of its population still depends on agriculture. Agriculture in India is backward and dependent on rains. Rain here is uncertain and untimely. This is also a major factor causing to the overall backwardness and low standard of living of the people. As a Prime Minister I would promote industrialisation to minimise the dependence of people on agriculture. Above all, I would ensure the equitable distribution of wealth to people.
I would work hard to bring social justice. I would promote good friendly relations with the neighboring countries. I would eradicate terrorism from the Indian soil. I would turn it into a country to which people would feel proud to be the Indians.
