Yesterday, there was a news item about people jostling with each other for obtaining forms for cheap housing in Gujarat . ‘Ghar nu Ghar’ scheme (by current opposition party in state ) of providing cheap housing to BPL families across the state has generated overwhelming response in the state.
Giving 'freebies' to middle / poor class has become a norm for winning elections .Political parties are not the one to be blamed, public who have a never ending thirst for ' Free' items are the ones to be blamed.
This give me everything for ' Free! Free! Free!' hunger is definitely going to take our country a long way in her development path!
PS:- When everyone was collecting the freebies , none was worried about the lack of electricity (TN) for almost 10 hours a day without which the freebies would be of no use. Long live democracy.
Also, Please don't ask me , " What were you doing there at the distribution center ??" :-)
