The Jewellers must disclose the terms of this "setting".Well, for the present as Sonia is smiling so the whole jeweller community is celebrating. Otherwise, the jewellers could have served the nation by disclosing the heavy investments of the black money owners, who have invested heavily in gold, silver, gems & jewellery. Where do the ordinary folks come in here?One person can not persuade the whole nation, but if we decide not to exchange jewellery in marriage, we can finish all black money generation, investing and destruction of rule of law.Has this excise business cropped up because of the influence of Ramdev/Anna, who are out to destroy black money and some prominent jewellers showing the spine to expose big fish with tonnes of black money in their belly and reporting the details to IT/ED?
Outlook India : Jewellers May End Strike After Meeting With FM, Sonia
PTI | New Delhi | Apr 06, 2012
Decision to hike the import duty on gold and impose excise on unbranded jewellery caused huge loss of revenue to GOI.Will FM take responsibility for this? Will he comply with the roll back orders of Congress high command ? If he does it,he is not worth his salt.Playing with the tax payers' money for political motives,is criminal.
Sonia Gandhi is now trying to steal the limelight by "appealing" to MOF to repeal its orders. Are decisions taken on political considerations alone? Was the jewellers' strike pre-planned by the Congress to revamp the sagging image of Sonia Gandhi,the de facto CEO of the country.
