Votes For Sale In Punjab: Insane Freebies To Some, At The Expense Of Working Class (Elections 2012)
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)SAD-BJP and Congress have announced unbelievable freebies like one kg of wheat at one rupee (0.02 US $) for certain sections of society. These sections have been handicapped by decades of perks and privileges, due to their enormous numbers and unity in voting.
Just because you decide to sell something at 1/20th the price doesn't mean that its production cost has magically reduced.
These artificially created losses will have to be compensated, and by whom? By the people who pay their utility bills, the people who too are enormous in number but lack the unity and form to "expect" fair governance and treatment.
Thankfully, in Punjab, this time there is a party which does not promise candies to kids. Dear Reader, this is our Punjab, and our vote. This time, good men have to do something.
