Aren’t the members of the Opposition the luckiest people in the parliament ? All that they have to do is to find fault with the government’s policies. What makes their job even more simpler is that, their criticisms needn’t be funny (like that of a Jon Stewart or a Vir Das).
The simplicity of their job became even more evident in the way they responded to the finance budget. All that they had to say about the loan waiver was that, it had come too late. What kind of a retort is that ?%#^#*
All that the leader of the opposition had to say was, “the budget has communal overtones”. Come on man, you seriously need to hire a person to help you sound smarter. Just having the Left party as a member of the ruling coalition doesn’t mean that everything has to be oriented towards the left !!
The announcement of the waiver also led to the plunging of all bank stocks which was kinda surprising because such schemes will make the farmers borrow money from the banks instead of the money lenders and this only means more profit for banks (unless the government steps in, of course). Looks like the stock markets are as narrow-minded as the opposition party members.
