Inflation is a major issue facing the common man today. With the kind of (in) actions this Govt is taking are most repulsive.
Govt seems to be warning us that we have made a mistake by voting them into power second/third time over. Sure, in such case we deserve the punishment we are being given.
We have Dr Manmohan Singh as the PM, a distinguished economist.
We have Montek Singh Ahluwalia, an economist, as the Chairman of planning commission.
We have Chawla as the finance Secy,
We have Dr Rangarajan, a financial genius, as an advisor besides various other economists in and around the PMs office and Finance ministry and in each state.
We have sent some of the best economists to IMF.
We have sent some of the best economists to the World Bank.
So, why is controlling inflation not on Govt’s agenda?
The biggest shocker came on Sat the 5 th.
Govt has increased the VAT (value added tax) on 170 items under different “heads” resulting into increase in prices of over 400 food items which include edible oil, pulses and other food items. Common man is already under stress due to 17% inflation on food items including daily vegetables.
There are very pressing issues for the Govt including, security, global warming, terror and also inflation. If the Govt is able to find time to attend to other problems---why is it avoiding priority on inflation?
Are some elements in the Govt in connivance with hoarders and black marketers?
Is the Govt taking us for granted as we have no alternative?
Is it a challenge to the electorate?
Should the P M get involved personally in handling this problem?
I am unable to find an answer to my own questions----can you help?
WE DESERVE THIS GOVERNMENT??
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
