The challenge for the next government will be to implement Congress party's rights-based welfare laws in a better way
From the Right to Information and the Right to Work to the Right to Education and the Right to Food, the Congress-led government’s 10 years in power are bound to find a place in history books for planting the seeds of a rights-based welfare state. If Parliamentary conduct is any indicator, this welfare state is here to stay. The few occasions the party was able to build a consensus in Parliament in the last 10 years was in passing these rights laws. But even as the Congress successfully scripted the path to a welfare state through its rights laws, it floundered in implementation. The challenge for the new government is in making good the wrongs of these “rights" by ensuring their effective implementation.
