Diesel Price Rise, Rationing LPG Cylinders and FDI in Retail


Government of India recently decided to raise price of Diesel by Rs. 5.00 per litre, placed restriction of 6 LPG cylinders for a family per annum at subsidised rates, and allowed FDI in retail area. All these decisions raised eyebrows in political field and citizens' groups. However, there is no increase price of kerosene. This has been welcomed by all. Restriction of 6 number of LPG cylinders may be increased to 9 by state government after bearing subsidy on additional cylinders. Central government has brought taxes on additional cylinders (more than 6 or 9, depending on the subsidy given by state government) to zero giving relief of approximately Rs. 97.00. However, this had been given to all LPG cylinders for domestic use. Dr. Man Mohan Singh, prime minister of India informed citizens the decision is harsh but there is no alternative solution under present circumstances. In general the decision is termed as bold but harmful to citizens because of expected price rise.

भाजप का बचपन कब तक चलेगा?

भारत में मान्यता है कि, "लालयेत् पञतवर्षाणि दशवर्षाणि ताडयेत। प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे पुत्रं मित्रवत् आचरेत।" याने कि, पुत्र याने बेटा 16 साल का होने पर पिता का मित्र हो जाता है। आज़ कल के ज़माने में यह पुत्री याने बेटी के बारे में भी सच है। मैंने सुना था कि, जब सिनेस्टार मेहमूद छोटे थे तब इन्हे पिताजी का बेटा ऐसे पहचानते थे। 15-20 साल की उमर में उन्होने अपनी पहचान बनाई। उस के बाद लोग उन के पिताजी को मेहमूद के पिताजी ऐशी पहचान प्राप्त हुई।

Is Decision of Anna Hazare Wrong?

Annaji takes a decision
After failure of protest against not adapting JanLokpal bill by the parliament (India) some colleagues of Honourable Shri Anna Hazare declared to establish a politicalparty. Many have criticised this decision and many have ridiculed it. Indian National Congress, major partner in ruling UPA government commented that that "This had been hidden agenda of Anna Hazare. We knew he wants to join politics and we welcome him" This appears to be a straight comment. However, members of Congress have ridiculed the statement saying "How can he contest elections without money", "How can Anna get elected?", "We shall see that not a single candidate would win election", "This shall show his proper place" These comments were unwarranted. If Anna decides to follow democratic way to fight against corruption, he should have been encouraged.
