A visit to a 'Below Poverty Line household'.




And then there are people who are 'above poverty line', but cannot afford three meals a day. Very few people have below poverty line cards and roughly 85% of them own land, a television , have an electricity connection and live in pucca houses.

cannot afford three meals a day = below poverty line. It changed already?

The problem is that families favoured by the panchayat head get BPL cards and their benefits.

People who are really poor, needless to say are left out.
