Indian Economy: A journey of last 65 years  

Abolish Poverty/Garibi Hatao
Abolish Poverty or the Garibi Hatao slogan carried out by Indira Gandhi`s 1971 election bid was designed to give Gandhi an independent national support—based on rural and urban poor. The Congress Party in New Delhi funded and developed the programs through garibi hatao agenda and was carried out locally across the country.

The Garibi hatao program however reached very little to the three main anti-poverty programs that combined only about 4% of all funds allocated for economic development. The agenda however helped secure Gandhi`s election.
