Although India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, a large population of the country lives in poverty. The Congress' NYAY scheme has promised to change this situation.

From where would this money come? And how will the poor be ascertained? These are two questions that immediately come in mind when one thinks about the Congress' poll promise.
