Sub: The evil of economic inequality
Through the esteemed columns of your newspaper, I wish to draw the kind attention of the general public towards the evil of rising economic inequality in our country. Economic inequality means the difference in money/finances owned by different classes.
For the past few decades, their difference in income between rich and poor is growing and giving rise to a lot of related issues. Crime rates have hit the roof and money is the primary motive. There is a lot of dissatisfaction and anger in poor people who feel neglected by the government and society. Living in poverty while slogging day and night results in even depression and many other clinical disorders.
While there are measures to ensure that all children get a fair chance right from schools, colleges and jobs, the clutches of poverty are hard to escape. This growing divide between the rich and the poor is detrimental for society and the nation. Urgent steps need to be taken to address this issue.
