Debate on Solution to Problem of Misery in the Urban Slums

Migration from villages to cities has led to the spread of urban slums. People living in these slums lead a miserable life. Economic disparity leads to the problems of law and order. Write a debate in 150 – 200 words on ‘Solution to the problem of misery in the urban slums lies in creating jobs in the villages’. You are Navtej/ Navita.

Honourable members of the Jury, respected Principal, Teachers, dear audience and my worthy opponents. Good morning to you all.

Today I, Navita, stand before you to speak for the motion ‘solution to the problem of misery in the urban slums lies in creating jobs in the villages’.

Migration is a major issue faced by cities. In search of a better and brighter future and to fulfil their dreams, people from small towns and villages move to cities. Unfortunately, their dreams shatter. Migration from villages to cities has led to the spread of urban slums, they gradually get entangled in the deplorable conditions. People living in these slums lead a miserable life. They have to survive in unhygienic living conditions, are deprived of proper meals and they lack money and jobs. They can’t even afford to fall ill because they don’t have enough funds for treatment.

Besides, the economic disparity that they face in the cities lead them to the problems of law and order. They get caught in vicious circle of police, money lenders, bureaucrats, etc. all of whom demand bribe in some way or the other. But what is the root cause of migration and the problems attached to it? The answer is simple. It is the dearth of jobs in their native place. There is a huge scope for expansion in villages and small towns, but people refuse to see it. The more jobs, medical and other basic facilities, we create in villages and small towns, the less people will migrate to the cities, thereby leading to an economically and medically stronger India.

Thank you
