    interesting angle of viewpoint.

    I'd rather interpret it as people are well fed as they managed to demonstrate walking on street. how's that one?

    Or that it was largely peaceful without any civilians blowing each other up, destroying shops and looting public property.

    Indian govt does not set oil prices just ridiculous subsidies added to it. The govt is absolutely correct in hiking prices by removing subsidies. Your economy earns taxes from only 6% ,is it, of the base? That is ridiculous and you want more subsidies?

    Just politics and nothing more!

    BJP is leading this nation wide bandh and KA (a BJP rules state) has levied 40% taxes on petrol and diesel. :bad:

    What nonsense is this? Who is BJP cheating? Afterall, do they think common man cannot think?

    First clean up your own states and then lets us talk about bandh and strikes!!!

    What a lame politics by BJP... We are again returning to 80's and 90's brand of politics...

    We are living in sad times. Both national parties suck at leadership. I had high hope from BJP but when the party president is decided by negotiations, I very much doubt that BJP will show any improvement over their 2009 tally...

    They should all go out to the field at the same time as a form of protest.
