Answer: By poverty, we mean a situation in which man can not meet the basic needs of life. Most of the people of our country are very poor. They live below the poverty line. They can hardly keep body and soul together.

However, this poverty can be alleviated to some extent. Our lands should be cultivated scientifically. Scientific methods and modern farming should be introduced. The high birth rate should be controlled. More employment opportunities should be created. Animal husbandry, crop diversification, fisheries, poultry, horticulture, agriculture, dairy farming should be introduced and all these things will go a long way to alleviate poverty.
