Operation Flood A Realistic View

Operation Flood: A Realistic View K T Achaya Vinod K Huria THE discussion note entitled 'Operation Flood; A Different View' by B S Baviskar and Shanti George (EPW, November 1-8) purports to be a discussion of the study entitled 'Rural Poverty and Operation Flood* by K T Achaya and Vinod K Huria (EPW, September 13). Baviskar and George begin by making a comparison between the recent study and an earlier one entitled 'Dairy Development in India: Some Critical Issues' published by the same authors (EPW, November 8, 1980) and claim that "Achaya and Huria seem to have considerably altered their stand in the period between the writing of the two articles". They hail the earlier article as a "sounder and a more balanced assessment' and the recent one as having a bias towards Operation Flood by saying "perhaps Achaya and Huria are insufficiently critical of the claims and arguments put forward by the authorities implementing Operation Flood".
