Forward Bloc protesting against its own govt.

Price rise: Forward Bloc plans protest

The All-India Forward Bloc — one of the four Left parties supporting the UPA at the Centre — on Saturday said it would launch a nationwide people's movement against price rice as the Government had ``miserably failed'' to keep the prices of essential commodities under check.

Reality check: Forward Block has 3 seats out of the 543 seats in the parliament. It contested in 10 seats and had to forfiet deposit in the remaining 7. A nationwide movement.

A protest against its own govermnet policies?

I think, Chindu, my good buddy, fuddyduddy-buddy, you are missing the point. Are you that Hindu bigot, they talk about so much? Democracy, my buddy-boy, is what I see in the actions taken by the Forward Bloc. Are you, Chindu-Hindu-Gundu-Gandu, Gungadin, a Hindu bigot? Or are you a silly-hill-billy-goat?
