Would Ambika Soni care to elaborate on what she means by social welfare and infrastructure? Given the recent nonsense being reported in the news, the government's idea of social welfare and infrastructure seems to include spending INR 7,000 Crores for giving away handsets to BPL families! I don't see how that can be categorised as social welfare. Do you?
If the government was actually interested in social welfare, they could (for instance) use the same INR 70 Billion to subsidise petrol / diesel / LPG prices. I am sure that would be considered a better use of the money as opposed to spending it on mobile phones. That is just one example.
And the typos continue:
- commmodities (extra m).
- tough decision hurt (should be decisions).
