The Congress had started a number of programmes on health, old-age pension, rural employment, roads and housing. However, it was not implemented properly. There were health centres but no doctors or medicines. Most of the poor did not get 100 days of work, and many were not paid in time. Old people had to pay a bribe to get pension. These were the result of collusion between the politicians and bureaucrats.
THE HALL MARKS OF THAT GOVERNMENT WERE NEPOTISM, ONE DYNASTY IN POWER THUS MOCKERY OF DEMOCRACY, CORRUPTION, COMMISSIONS AND BRIBES, HINDU BASHING AND SIKH BATTERING AND TAMIL MASSACRES BUT APPEASEMENT OF MUSLIMS AND ACCEPTING THE BREAKAWAY TREACHEROUS PAKISTAN AS A LEGITIMATE STATE.
