  • In the intro, mention the recent debate on the welfare policies and thin line between such policies and freebies.
  • In the body mention the difference between freebies and the welfare policies. In the next part mention how freebies affect the state finances and divers resources away from where these are required. In the suggestions mention factors that should be considered such as sustainability and challenge of equality of access to basic facilities, use of technology, priorities of expenditure, and impact on the economy etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for nationwide debate on the issue of fiscally imprudent and unsustainable subsidies.
