@BloombergQuint Yet another superficial analysis on #JammuKashmir. Experts who make the glib argument that people are frustrated and therefore taking to violence have not bothered to study any data. Here are some numbers (incl RBI data!) - how #JammuKashmir compares with the rest of India.
@BloombergQuint 1) India has far higher social spending in #JammuKashmir than rest of the country. Here are the RBI data on per capita spending on #health #education and overall #Development spending.
@BloombergQuint 2) #JammuKashmir has far more health infrastructure than rest of the country. This also translates into significantly better health outcomes as measured by indicators such as infant mortality and life expectancy. #KnowIndia
@BloombergQuint 3) In education: #JammuKashmir has twice the number of schools per household than the rest of the country. This also translates into better education outcomes. #KnowIndia
@BloombergQuint 4) Households in #JammuKashmir have greater financial inclusion (availing banking services - urban and rural) and connectivity (cellphones) than average households in rest of India. #KnowIndia
@BloombergQuint So no - #JammuKashmir is not a "tragedy" and infiltration doesn't just "happen" - India is fighting a state sponsored/executed terror war there, with Pakistan. #KnowIndia
