When the press persons enquired on his recent China visit, he said that China has achieved remarkable progress. One does not feel the population explosion in that country. Their life style is quite different while the nation has been well developed. When compared to our nation with China, they have authoritarian rule whereas we have democracy. In our democratic system of governance, the decisions are to be approved by various authorities. I would advise all our politicians to visit China, thereby make an attempt to follow their life style. This would certainly bring about changes in the governance which deserves to be followed. Moreover the rural life in China seems to be horrible except the urban residents are better off than their counter parts residing in rural areas. Poor are scooping down to below the poverty line while rich are shining at all fronts.
