Ah, what gems of human rights right there. The leading lights, nein, Effigies of rights and freedom, sometimes..most times.. on fire!

The pie of telco revenues is big, brown, and juicy. Are they in losses? So it would probably be a "gain share" between them and the powers that be?
I just love the sheer shameless relentlessness of the in-favor people who are trying to push this, both corporate, and government!

@Samurai; Yes as per the current Trump mindset. However, remember he is a newbie in politics so more likely to both try new things, and make mistakes. He is definitely no the media's darling. This is the first time I am hearing talk of an impeachment even before a President has assumed office!

The moot point will be how and when does he undo his mistakes.

Is this of any significance? Experts may please comment and shed light on what might be in store for India.
