    Left is certainly not right

    When, o when, will the government call the Left parties' bluff and tell them to fall in line or stop supporting? I'm fairly sure that given the chaos within the NDA (read BJP), it'll be tough to bring down this government. But the problem is that when it comes to the economy, the only party whose agenda resembles the Congress is the BJP!

    These commie comrades have created lots of problems for the government. Just as the elections got over and it seemed obvious that the Congress and its allies would form the government, a few irresponsible statements from those buggers caused the BSE Sensex to go into freefall, thereby wiping out crores of rupees from the market. Who lost? Those very same lower & middle class people that the Left claims to represent.

    Then they put pressure on Chidambaram to hike the EPF rate, stop FDI in telecom & airports etc.. Thankfully Chidambaram didnt listen too much to their demands on the budget and did some thinking of his own.

    Now their stand on the EPF rate has been exposed with the fact that only the high income earners among India's working population stand to gain through this rate hike to 9.5%.
