Well first of all "Hi" to all the readers of this wonderful newspaper.
There is this saying which goes like"a true leader is one who believes and respects his decision".And looking at Rahul,he,sure looks like one.i think India is at it's most crucial phase right now. Developing cities doesn't mean a developed state. In fact it creates a sense of inequality ,which can lead to disastrous consequenes.(Andhra Pradesh is best example of that.)I feel NREGA is a great program to give self respect to poor of this wonderful country.If Rahul Gandhi lives upto even half of what he pledged to,he will go down in history as the man who "Actually Made India". Good luck Bro...

What an amazing way to enable the already existing schemes(NREGA) to the masses.I appreciate Rahul for taking things in his own hands.If he is able ensure 100% delivery of what is claimed.I am sure that this will go down in history as the most significant step in the upliftment of the downtroden.I also want to commend The Hindu for the truth must prevail kind of journalism. Keep up the good work. Let the schemes helping our fellow Indian be the part of page 1 of your esteemed newspaper.

I am happy about the naming of the scheme after the Father of the Nation, Gandhi. In Fact the DMK Govt should be requested to rename the medical insurance scheme after the Mahatma. I admire Rahul for his simple approach based on Mahatma's non-violence thinking.

'THE HINDU' is really contributing to enlighten the masses about NREGA making people to think on individual level that increase in efficiency of implementation can be brought about by step by step through reforms. It would be really good if we could also get information about implementation and percentage success of NREGA in each state.

Thanks to The Hindu for its consistent coverage on NREGA. What would be useful is to provide a statistical summary of the NREGA - perhaps using diagrams/graphs - and what it has done so far. Maybe a state-by-state picture could be provided.

Thank you,
Rohan Nair.

It is heartening to see 'The Hindu' give significant and consistent focus to NREGA which taps into our nation's rural potential and productivity.
