Quell a strike to win votes

Its one in a million times that an incumbent government gets the opportunity to please everyone. And that opportunity came and went.

It came in the form of the PSU executives of Oil majors in India going on a strike. Lack of oil supplies can bring an economy to a grinding halt sending prices of almost everything spiralling. That's what happened all across India. The result? Widespread anger all across the country. Now that's a moment to be seized. Quelling the strike and getting everything back to normal, especially prices (note that inflation has dropped to its lowest level in 10 months), surely will only result in countrywide admiration for the government. Sadly that's come a little late in the day, though am glad the strike's off.

It was an opportunity that went abegging, an opportunity to score big time, with voters.
