Generally, people of Kerala are happy with Hartals.This time the Human Rights Commission has come out with the dictum that action will be initiated against those who are behind hartals. If anybody indulge in actions like preventing them from their duties will be taken into custody.
At the same time today's newspaper carries another report that there is a person who welcomed the diesel price hike. It is nobody other than the Vice Chairman of Planning Commission, Montek Singh Aluvaliah, who said the other day that all paddy fields in Kerala should be converted into other uses like industrial and residential purposes. We, the Kerala people though depend on rice need not produce it here !
