railway fares, only to chicken out partially. Sops were extended to the auto and sugar industries just like old times. The import stable door was bolted so that voters in the sugar belt of Maharashtra – up in a few months for elections – would not look at the political gift-horse in the mouth. Yesterday

You double the railway fares and then bring them down and say we increased by only 14%.No honeymoon 100 days required for that.

The only work visible is Railway fare hike, Diesel fare hike, Sugar price hike ... We are waiting to see the real work first in the Union budget, when we can really see if there is any seriousness in tackling inflation. Upto now, we have seen only lip service, but price hikes in everything

on proving themselves that they can not think beyond votes. See their knee-jerk actions on Railway fares vis-a-vis to the opposition from urban consumers, particularly the Mumbaikars! And a loser/winner like Mr Jaitley accepts/endorses that the decisions were made by UPA!

prices being adjusted, railways fares being rationalised, sugar partly decontrolled. Takes pride in dumping "oppressive, colonial" land acquisition laws in 2013, passage of Food Bill, opening up of multi-brand retail, blah-blah. If Chidu is exciting the faithfuls in the party with his loud defence

This is a result of the apathy of our Central Govt which has resulted in the loss of so many innocent and precious human lives by way of these needless accidents which could have been highly prevented if Mr Dinesh Trivedi was not forced to resign, when he decided to increase railway fares to raise

It is true the government inaction is brining pain to the markets and inturn to the public. But Mamata has no moral authority to say so. What she has done in the last few years as the chief minister of WB? What is anti-people policies as per Mamatha? Increasing the railway fares and oil
