Question: “People have conflicting developmental goals”. Support the statement with suitable example. (Board Term-I, (NLTM8TU), 2016-17)
Answer: Different persons could have different as well as conflicting notions of a country’s development. In fact; two persons or groups of persons may seek things which are conflicting. To get more electricity, industrialists may want more dams. But this may submerge the land and disrupt the lives of people who are displaced - such as tribes. They might resent this and may prefer small check dams or tanks to irrigate their land.
