    Oh. Shoot! I just lost Rs.105/-. I'll have to starve to recover it.

    Hike has no effect on politicians because we pay for them and ourselves also.

    George Harry Wednesday, 13 March 2019 01:08 AM

    Contradictory statement, earlier announcement came with "no increase or decrease."

    Ravi Wednesday, 13 March 2019 05:06 AM

    MP's get free fuel allocated to them.

    Now it becomes more clear of a one sided game during elections. Private sector which contributes immensley towards the coffers have been overlooked. Salary increase, Vehicle permits and other benefits for Government sector, step motherly treatment for Private sector. If the entire Private sector closes down for one day as a protest, government will lose billions. Mangala will face the consequences during election time!

    indeed (pvt) sector should show its strength and send shock waves to this govt. Then only, these idiots will realize.
