Current affairs-Hypocricy

I am yet to come across a bigger hypocrite than Anil Ambani. According to Anil, oil ministry is partial to Mukesh ( Ambani ) and that the RIL is firing from petroleum ministry’s shoulders. (Hindustan Times – 29-7-09). Whatever Anil’s differences with Mukesh, he has just conveniently chosen to forget his own immediate past.

Ever since he took over from BSES Ltd., he has fleeced more then twenty lacs electricity consumers right from the start by way of fixed charges and reliability charges and what not which were unheard of in the times of BSES. The charges of electricity per unit have doubled since he took over. Didn’t Anil fire from the shoulders of MERC? It is only after much opposition from political parties and huge public outcry that the recent hike was put off.

I am not in favour of Mukesh and I certainly do not want to judge who is right and who is wrong. But if, as Anil says Mukesh is trying to fleece him ( If at all ),Mukesh is fleecing a person who deserved to be fleeced. Anil himself is guilty of the same crime.

Lastly, it is heartening to know that Tatas are coming to the rescue of common consumers.
