“Mediocre” Rahul Gandhi clueless on FTII’s unruly History

“Mediocre” Rahul Gandhi clueless on FTII’s unruly History.It was a funny spectacle earlier today at the FTII when “mediocre” Rahul Gandhi delivered a sermon on mediocrity. It was a rare moment to see someone with zero political acumen and someone who owes his entire political existence to the Nehru-Gandhi chromosome attempt to speak about mediocrity in public life.

Was he reflecting on his own lack of merit or talent or was he out of his depths speaking to someone else’s script ?

Either way Rahul Gandhi it seems is utterly clueless about the long history of unruly and disruptive student behaviour at FTII that has rendered the Institute dysfunctional over the years.

INDIA IS MOVING

India is the third largest producer of agricultural output in the World. Nearly two thirds

of India’s population still derives their livelihoods from agricultural sector

directly and indirectly. Thus, agriculture development is always a priority in the

development policy in India. Most of the agricultural policies in India during the pre-

1990s era were centred on production-oriented strategies. These policies were highly

relevant until mid-eighties-as increase of food production was a primary development

goal of the India’s policy to reduce the dependency on other countries for food

imports. The First to Fifth Five Years Plans (1951 to 1975) mainly focused on

irrigation expansion, introduction of so-called ‘green revolution’ technologies

especially modern crop varieties/hybrids, government’s policy support for both input

and output marketing, setting of big fertiliser plants for increasing domestic supplies

of chemical fertilisers, nationalisation of commercial banks in order to increase the

rural credit flow, setting up of Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices, and

setting up of Food Corporation of India, etc. mainly aimed at achieving rapid growth

in food grain production in India. As a result of all these efforts, India’s food

economy has been transformed from a ‘chronic deficit’ stage to the ‘self-reliance’

stage by the mid-eighties, and reached the record of food surplus stage by the end of
