Default Re: Proposal to shut Fuel stations at Night!

Great now traffic jams can extend outside fuel pumps too. An average joe now has to go out of his way to get fuel filled in his car. How many people leave for work before 8 and how many come back after 8? So should there now be fuel breaks in office? Okay so you get a full tank in advance..it will run out soon. then what?

Secondly what in case of emergencies? You've got enough fuel to last you 50-70 kms but what if you need to rush to another town to tend to a sick relative? You'll wait till the next day?

We can cite enough examples of how stupid this move is. Austerity measures seem to apply to only the common man and there will no regulation and fuel will be black-marketed at night. Why don't our leaders lead by examples? Do they realize that not every vehicle owner has a driver designated 24/7 like they do?

How about taking a holistic view? Why do the govt and its chamachas come out with outrageous ideas and comments with alarming frequency? Simple, to divert the attention of the public from real issues.

Nobody is discussing the state of economy, depreciating Rupee, dangers of FSB, LAB, UIDAI, corruption, inflation, etc.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram have rejected the Oil Ministry's proposal of keeping petrol pumps open only from 8 am to 8 pm. Reacting to the proposal, Chidambaram said, "It's not a government suggestion but one which had come from the public as the Oil Minister has himself clarified.

These jokers surely know how to divert people's attention from the main issues. The petrol is still expensive, onions dearer, rupee on a free-fall and the economy still in a mess; still we feel a respite after something like this episode and finally relax. I won't say that these guys are dumbs; in fact pretty smart, much more smart than the common man which includes us.

... and they still have the guts to sing "Ho Raha Bharat Nirman"

I guess its high time that we overthrow this government and bring in someone responsible, because, its the same very people who would disown their own decisions when they back fire. These politicians should be made to cut down their motorcade rather than taxing public for their exhibit of pomp this way.
