THE Congress government in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday launched a scheme -- Amma Hastam ( mother's hand) -- to supply a basket of nine essential commodities every month to citizens below poverty line at a subsidised rate.
In keeping with this tradition, India's planning commission told the Supreme Court last week that anyone spending more than Rs965 a month in a town or Rs781 in a village will be deemed not to be poor and will no longer be eligible to draw benefits from government welfare programmes meant for people living below poverty line.
