• Wages
The wage rates of casual and regular workers of both men and women workers in rural and urban areas are very low compared to other States. As per the latest National Sample Survey Office statistics, the daily wage rates of casual men and women workers in rural areas are lower than the corresponding rates in India, with the State ranking 14th (Rs.69) and ninth (Rs.56) in men’s and women’s wage rates respectively among the major 20 States. In the case of urban casual workers’ daily wages, the State ranked seventh (Rs.109) and 14th (Rs.56) for male and female wage rates. In the case of regular rural workers also the State ranked 17th (Rs.152) and ninth (Rs.108) in the male and female wage rates respectively. The corresponding ranks for urban areas are 18th (Rs.205) and 13th (Rs.182) respectively among the major 20 States in India. According to NSSO 2011 figures about 98 per cent of the women workers and about 89 per cent of the male workers in the State are engaged in informal work .

• Nutrition
The NFHS-3 tells us that 47 per cent of children below the age of three in the State were underweight. That figure was 45 per cent in NFHS-2. That’s about twice the average for sub-Saharan Africa. It is also marginally higher than the nationwide average of 46 per cent. The percentage of Gujarat’s children who are ‘wasted’ also went up from 16 to 17 per cent between the two NFHS surveys
According to statistics from a report of the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, “Children in India, 2012—A Statistical Appraisal”, between 40 and 50 per cent of children in Gujarat are underweight, which bursts one more myth in Gujarat’s story of growth. Other States in this low weight category are Meghalaya, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Odisha. Human Development Report 2011 said around half of Gujarat’s children were malnourished.

• Gujarat is the 7th worst state in adult men having a body mass index of less than 18.5.

Infant mortality :
Infant mortality is high in Gujarat, which ranks 11th countrywide in the rate of decline of infant mortality. According to “Children in India, 2012”, the infant mortality rate in Gujarat was still high, with 44 fatalities of infants per 1,000 live births.
In its 2012 State-wise report, the United Nation’s Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said, “Almost every second child in Gujarat under the age of five years is undernourished and three out of four are anaemic. Infant and maternal mortality rates have reduced very slowly in the last decade…. One mother in three in Gujarat struggles with acute under-nutrition….”

Gujarat ranks fourth in reported cases of child marriage.

Statistics of the NSSO show that the percentage of reduction of poverty between 2004 and 2010 was the lowest in Gujarat, at 8.6 per cent.

• Water:
According to Census 2011, 43 per cent of the rural households in Gujarat get water supply on their premises and 16.7 per cent get treated water from a common tap

• Toilets:
The data show that 67 per cent of rural households in the State have no access to toilets and members of more than 65 per cent of the households defecate in the open, very often polluting common water sources. Waste collection and disposal are matters practically unheard of. The State ranks 10th in the use of latrines

• Comprehensive Environmental Pollution Index (CEPI):
Anything over 70 on this index is considered to have crossed critical levels, that is, the pollution exceeds the capacity of the environment to handle it and it becomes a dangerous health hazard. According to statistics from the Central Pollution Control Board, Ankleshwar and Vapi in Gujarat top the list of 88 severely polluted industrial areas in India. Ankleshwar has a CEPI rating of 88.50 while Vapi’s is 88.09. Of the 88 areas, eight are in Gujarat

• Employment growth:
NSSO data show that in Gujarat , growth in employment has dropped to almost zero in the past 12 years

Human Development Index :
Gujarat (0.519) stands 11th in Human Development Index among the states in India. Where Kerala(0.790) stands first.

    1) CAG blam
    es Modi Ji for favouring Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani, causing loss of 5000 crore. Why Modi Ji is so generous towards Ambani and Adani? Why he is using our money for Ambani and Adani?
    ( )

    2) Modi Ji misused 9000 crore in Petroleum Gas Adventure, and moreover he hided this Scam when asked by Media. We want to ask Modi Ji, is 9000 crore a small amount for you? Why you ate our money? ( )

    3) Gujraat gets highest share of gas, then too Modi Government levies highest VAT in comparison to other states,to its citizens and supplies Industrialist houses in cheap cost. Again why Modi Ji is favouring Indusrtialists instead of common people? Why VAT is
    highest in Gujraat.(

    4)Rajeeka Kacheeria, head of BJP IT cell,responsible for Modi’s promotion as BJP’s PM in waiting, has admitted in an interview that, ” Everything in social media is done under strict guidance of Modi himself”. According to her Modi decides whom to promote and whom to defame in Social Media.He has created 33 social media IT cells for his promotion, BJP is ahead in manipulating online surveys by creating fake profiles in social media. According to the recent EXPOSE of COBRAPOST, Operation-Blue Virus, BJP is far ahead in hiring IT companies to defame the personalities. We can see it in our recent days, the way BJP IT cell is attacking Arvind by spreading Morphed and edited pics.( )

    5) Till now 24 RTI activists are murdered and harrased in Modi Government. If Modi Ji is non-corrupt then whats the reason behind these murders and agony. Who is responsible for thier deaths and sufferings? Our question is why Modi is afraid of RTI s?
    ( )

    6)CAG slams Modi government for water pollution on water bodies. Is Modi only thinking about industries in his state ? Has he any concern for its environment and detrimental effects of water pollution on Gujraat.(

    7)”Modi Ji creates fake Google Hangout to fool the people, all the questions asked during the Google Hangout were pre-scripted and submitted by great loyalist of Modi. No anti-Modi supporter can submit their questions before Modi. This shows his Hitler asscent” (

    Modi claims that Gujraat is the fastest growing state in India,which is a pure false,according to recent survey its Bihar is the fastest growing state in India, Bihar has highest GDP growth rate. And Haryana, Maharashtra, Orissa,Chhattisgarh is ahead of Gujraat in Growth rate. So Gujraat is in sixth rank for developing state, then too our Modi ji boast about Gujraat for most developing state.
    Shame on him…

    9) MODI has formed a toothless Lokayukt system, Is this how he is going to behave and rule India after coming into power??? Why he is afraid of anti-corruption agencies? He take Anna’s name inorder to attack Arvind and Aam Aadmi, while the irony is Gujraat itself has no strong JanLokpal. (

    10) Half of the followers of Narendra Modi in twitter is fake claims social firm. why he is trying to fool us in hi-tech way? shame on him.(

    11) Modi Ji’s one of the minister is arrested on account of murdering an RTI activist, Amit Jethwa. Is this how Modi’s cabinet will behave if they get the central power in their hand? Will they murder all the whistle blowers? ( )

    HAHAHA as per these cooked-up, selectively presented, de-contextualized, motivated stats Kerala is the best state in India. Are you serious? I’d take Gujarat any day over that backwater road to nowhere.
