AUGUSTIN today forwarded me this article.
now won’t it be much simpler and effective to just list the 1-2 places where there is going to be power this weekend. Also if the IT capital.. which runs solely on electrons is in such a bad shape, then just think what happens in the rest of the state.
A man wants to earn his bread by doing a legitimate trade. He is helping the poor farmers (by giving them a better price for their produce), the common man (by providing better services at cheaper rates) and the government (by paying VAT/ TAXes since all his transactions are billed). In doing so, he is antagonizing a lot of people who have vested interests in screwing the common man, the poor farmers and the government.. just to line their pockets… So they just team up and go ahead and ransack his guy’s shop.
What should the government do?
Should it not help this guy, and prevent people from terrorizing people into submission? Instead our educated and learned Mayawati is siding with the mobsters by ordering all big retail outlets to shut shop. Not only this, she created a committee (atleast 6 months delay) to decide when and how to reopen it.
What kind of justice is this? Are we some sort of anarchy where any Tom, Dick and Harry can pelt a few stones and get what they want…. whether its stop screening of a movie, or just getting rid of competitors.
