Our beloved minister has given a call for “Pub Bharo“. And our media friends think its inspired by the “Jail Bharo” andolan.
I hope that our “friendly neighbourhood culture protection forces” dont protest against sale of drugs and narcotics anywhere. Nor should they protest against anybody operating brothels. Newspapers keep reporting about “services” being offered for people, especially the IT generation on Bangalore’s outskirts. I hope no-one protests against that as well. Given the fervour with which our minister is defending freedom and rights, we could end up receiving other calls 🙂
BTW, one minister is going hammer and tongs to bring about some policy to regulate alcohol. Another gives a call to swamp pubs. A public debate between the two would be interesting! Or maybe I am wrong – people could be going to/bharo-fying pubs just to socialize, you see, without consuming alcohol at all 🙂
