There are some who claim that the poor are reeling under the onslaught of demonetization. I have the following suggestion which would alleviate their pains.
Christian church in India is the largest landowner (besides the government). Much of this land was ill-gotten because the predatory colonial regimes handed them over to the church. In addition, the church has been in cahoots with corrupt politicians and has grabbed more prime estate.
Just nationalize every church and Christian educational institution and NGO. That would free up large tracts of lands which the government can use for genuine infrastructure development and society building. Besides, the church also sits on colossal cash reserves which ere received from foreign agencies and hence ill-gotten. The government can use all of that for poverty alleviation.
The best way to approach this is to have local proportional representation to disburse church property and funds. Representatives from local castes should be proportionately nominated by the government to take care of this progressive measure. This would elicit enthusiastic local participation. There is already a precedent for doing this. Hindu temples and their property are nationalized and disbursed away by the government. So, let us extend this progressive model to the Christian churches and institutions.
