poor man's government

I wanted to write abt this for a very long time - i dont know why I dint actually go ahead and write the same.

The current Indian government and their claim being the poor man's government. How do you define poverty. If not having food and drink is being poor and rest all are rich, then the government is busy working towards converting all of us.
The petrol price in Bangalore is 42 Rs/litre. Thats roughly 97 cent a litre.. I am sure it is cheaper in the US, and remember guys, we get paid in rupees. A well paid Software guy would be getting roughly a $800 or less... what about the rest of the folks (they are still eating (rich) )

After the govt has come in, the petrol price has increase, the taxes have gone up by 2%, the provident fund interest has gone down, the "feel good" factor of the last govt. has evaporated... the markets are down... inflation at all time high and infrastructure, well do I need to talk about it.... Azim Premji, has said that they are not looking at Bangalore as a potential center of growth, as the govt with their nefarious games have stopped major steps by the last govt.. .

So tell me, what is it that the govt has promised that it will achieve and why is this a poor man's govt. Mr Prime Minister, it is the tax payers money that you use when you give out free electricity!!!

We never had 3 techno-crats at the driving seat of this nation (or probably any nation)... Imagine having 3 PhD's being the finance minister, the prime minister and the president !! May be they are right when they say that too many cooks spoil the broth.


just angry me.
