The problem of rural poverty is old and massive. The earlier hope of its improvement through the percolation of the fruits of general economic growth, failed. More land resources could not be made available to the poor. The IRDP experience of giving cattle and other assets has, as we have reviewed, come to little. Subsidy appears to be its centre of attraction. As we have argued, it could not be otherwise. Eradication of poverty needs a multi pronged strategy. But as things stand, the most important, indeed the central one, has to be the creation of massive wage employment opportunities, both on private and public account, in rural areas. Then the other programmes will provide opportunities for the able and the enterprising. It is time resources, organisation and skill are directed to this end, if poverty is to be tackled in the decade to come.
