Sarkar Hatao,Daam Ghatao Ke Slogan Se Voters Ko Patao
The picture alongside shows Shri LK Advani and other BJP leaders protesting against rising prices.Economic measures can regulate rising prices.I am not aware of any known emperical evidence to suggest that dharnas and demonstrations have a similar effect.Is this a responsible way of protesting? Messers Manmohan Singh,P.Chidambaram and Montek Singh Ahluwalia are well qualified and capable of tackling this problem - which is not really their making.There are a host of global factors at play which may be beyond the control of any single government. The United States of America diverting resources for producing bio-fuel is one of them. Rising food consumption in India, according to the United States, is another factor.
If the BJP has some solutions,other than those which are being tried out now, they must give the government their suggestions, in writing.Standing outside the parliament wearing sandwich boards will not help.
A hunger strike may help, marginally.
