    The number of tax filers has fallen from 2 million in 2006 to only 850,000 in 2014. This fact alone tells a lot about failure of governance, as an indication of how deep the rot is, despite any claims to the contrary.

    When you heavily tax the population and people like those in JC gives a thumbs up to corruption it is kind of giving a green signal to lawlessness!

    Very well said.

    The principles of rate of return, economics of a project, financial viability, feeder routes for metro, traffic flow, etc aren't high on the priority list of a low income person. All he sees is the present, and at present he has a big project in front of him with all the bells and whistles...he doesn't look down the line 20 years later.
