Todays paper

Todays newspaper has a series of advertisements by the government. The National Rural Health Mission, Ministry of Rural development have full page ads. Then there is a half page from the Ministry of Social Justice and a smaller one from the Ministry of textiles. So, that you, the middle class which reads newspapers goes out and votes (for them)...

The Gujarat government also has a full page ad as does BSNL, LG...Whatever else is happening amidst the slowdown, the media is not complaining. They are raking in the moolah of the polls. Any guesses as to whose money is being spent here?

Bombay newspapers today are filled with such ads too. At least the newspaper industry is the one industry that will not need sops .

In Bombay the streets are littered with posters by individual politicians and parties claiming to have done work to benefit the public . Some of them are for such banal issues . It's embarrassing to even read such stuff.
