Roll Back Government has Rolled Back Again

The Government of India, which has earned a reputation for itself in rolling back its own decisions has done it once again.

This time the government has rolled back its decision to allow FDI investment in the retail sector. Although the government is saying that it has put the decision on hold "until a consensus is evolved" among its allies. So it is as good as a roll-back. The government is not going to implement another one of its announcements.

With the roll back of the FDI issue, the path has now been cleared to focus back to the topic of the Jan-Lokpal Bill.

Anna Hazare has already announced a symbolic one-day protest for 11-Dec-2011, and said he is ready for another hunger strike by the end of the month if the Jan-Lokpal Bill is not passed, in accordance the PMs letter to him and the sense-of-the-parliament conveyed to him during the previous Parliament Session.

It will be interesting to see what the government does this time to humiliate itself.
