Coincidence? I think not.

Intnl Crude prices fall, but fuel price rise in india. Blame it on rupee rate, greek crisis, air india strike… I mean the fin minister and his cohorts in RBI are using every flimsy reason that its beginning to sound like Ripleys ‘believe it or not’. The pompous gov’t servant (parasite) fattens on taxes while struggle to make ends meet. Indian cities will slowly descend into anarchy and organised gangs will replace corporates. Don’t laugh. You guys actually buy the silly reasoning of oil ministry and fin min on fuel pricing.

India being a diesel-driven economy ‘biting the diesel bullet’ would only flare up the cost at the exchequer.

Easy solution lies in; 1)Shut down all private-mode of transportation. 2)Fine those private drivers who drive a truck to work instead a car. 3)Switch to communal transport whereby people hire bigger vehicles and travel in groups.

Or simply walk or cycle to work. Because that was how man grew up when Middle East was just one large strip of desert land.

We are facing a situation of acute inflation today. Government hiking their staff DA more and more but for those who are working with private companies their salary is not hiked yet because appraisal is still going on. Request to all political leader to do something and find a solution.
