There's competition for I&B Ministry...
I&B Ministry headed by Priyaranjan Das Munshi has competition.. yes this comes from Women and Child Welfare Minnistry headed by Renuka Chowdhry.
This is competition about: staying in the news, shouting out silly short-sighted policies with regular frequency, primarily aimed at getting attention! A trick learned from Shree Arjun Singh perhaps...
Ms Renuka Chowdhry first:
- All women will be required to register their pregnancies, ostensibly to help them with pre-and-post natat care, etc. (Has she visited a govt. hospital in recent times - to see the conditions there?. Force of any kind is likely to only strengthen the hands of quacks!)
- Introduction of Domestic Violence Act ostensibly to help women. She surely knows rampant misuse of dowry act notwithstanding, populism pays!
Mr Priya Ranjan Das Munshi:
- A perfectly legal contract between 'Neo' and BCCI is thrown out of the window, by arm-twisting and introducing new laws, so that Neo's cricket feed can be fed to the sick DD. So much so for upholding laws of the land. Did we hear someone say - Populism pays!
- Plans to introduce tax on TV's so that Doordarshan can be kept running profitably, ostensibly for the greater-good! It did not occur to the minister that, nobody watches or cares about DD primarily because of its third-grade programming and complete disregard for the intelligence of the viewer.
Lage Raho Minister Bhai...
