Right, the competition must be fair,the choices should be available,and the consumer should not be compelled by limiting his choice.I feel there is no harm as long as no consumer feels forced.Let the companies compete on a healthy ground, and let jobs be created.

Re: The Red Menace

This process is long drawn, will just not solve the maoist dissent in years to come, but perhaps is the only alternative left with the government to exercise.I wonder why talks have failed so much to a point that this has to be done. Gill would have done this efficiently, but the man has retired.
