Right on! The incompetent politicians and bureaucrats who run the Indian government just don't seem to get it. They keep coming up with "schemes" which purport to solve an existing problem. However, they always put a kicker in there which effectively negates the point of the whole scheme in the first place.
These people are also control freaks. I don't think they particularly want "foreigners" like us, who are used to the free expression of ideas, gaining political power and polluting the local citizenry with our thoughts. I suspect one of their biggest unspoken fears is that we may jeopardise their carefully crafted mutual welfare society.
