HOW govt calculates the depth of poverty, i hope it is very easy if you are watching TV because TV shows high rises buildings, 5 stars hotels, best roads, best living and stylish livings so we heel happy and think we are developed. i agree that in our country is developed in many ways . no doubt our income raised and our living standard  improved. on the other hand the ugly face of the poverty is beyond our imagination. there are maximum are BPL and have no residents, no basic amenities.govt is thinking that we have eradicated poverty , true poor are deadly residing. we have many challenges  and we have achieved less % of progress.
