    Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar has called for political parties to discuss the practice of states offering free goods or services. He believes that the distribution of benefits can have negative consequences for economies and individuals’ finances. Dhankhar emphasized the need to create an environment that empowers individuals to use their skills and potential for development.

    Dhankhar made these remarks at the 9th Commonwealth Parliamentary Association – India Region Conference in Udaipur. He pointed out the decline in capital expenditure, which hampers genuine development efforts.
