[ Poverty can be considered as one of the most serious problems in the present less developed countries. To fight this problem a government can choose between several strategies. One option is growth strategy. An other strategy is direct intervention through the implementation of Poverty Alleviation Programmes to reduce the prevalence of poverty. This thesis will be confined to the latter. Only rural programmes are discussed. With a case study of Anantapur. ]

[ Peasant activism in Western Uttar Pradesh was identified with Muzaffarnagar district, and with the seats of power of two important concentrations of Jats, Sisauli and Bhopa. The peasant activism has been superimposed on the existing panchayat structure, and a study of the panchayats in this area may give some idea of the impact of the peasant movement on the social and political structures. This paper focuses on the contrast between the deficiency of democratic structure and the great number of divergent views. ]
