If you watch television these days, you get to see shit load of ads focused on Aadhaar and food security bill and other scams. Every ad would be costing the government a couple of lakhs. So well, shit has been going on for a while now.

Congress is bringing loads of bills, including the feriwala bill as well. I don't think anything will be left for 2019 elections. Nothing will be delivered by congress, though.
It is just an investment. They'll break even in just months. And, the profit, will be manifold....

For instance, while the ad film in Marathi may have had door hangings, the Bengali ones didn’t have any. The ad shot in Kannada had a rangoli on the floor made of colourful powders, while the one in Bengali had a rangoli made out of rice flour paste. In another ad on the train, the cups for the tea changed with each station. In the Marathi ad it was the cutting chai glass, in Bengal it was kulhads (little cups made of clay). Even the street food vendors in the background had to change with each ad, as “Bengal mein coconut nahin dikhna chaheye (you should not see a coconut in Bengal)… aur Dosa wala nahin, Poochka wala dikhna chahiye (not a dosa vendor but a poochka vendor should be seen in the background of a Bengali ad) Thank god the animals were the same!” exclaimed Sarkar.The casting, as the crew maintains was the mother of all projects. At one point, there were five casting teams on the project. They looked for fresh faces with theatre background. Priya is played by Mumbai model Anupriya, according to Agarwal and has appeared in other ads as well.
The 23rd advertising film is in the works.

Congress just passed a law with Parliament out of session gutting the anti-corruption tools we all fought for, allowing criminals to stay in office through their appeals -- all to save one powerful MP convicted of fraud. It’s insane, and it’s a stain on the history of this country.This is the same party that marched with Gandhi and Nehru -- that India’s poor, election after election, vote for with hope. This is the party that is supposed to offer a future for India as a united country, without religious divisions, without internal violence.
But a few crooked MPs don’t own Congress. We do. This is our party, and whether we vote for them or for the BJP, they represent all of India and are only as powerful as we make them. It’s time to take Congress back.Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will ask Sonia Gandhi and her ministers whether they support fast track courts for MPs, making sure that long appeals don’t mean Indians are stuck with criminal politicians for years. This smart move can fix the damage their new law does, and save the party from their corruption stained reputation so close to the election. But it’s going to take all of us, coming together, to take Congress back and make it see sense. Send a message to stand up for our future together.

What's going on....what was that a stunt from rahul gandhi to gain some media and public attention or just showing his power with familism by insulting PM and whole cabinet ...I finally welcome the move by which that ordinance is thrown away ...But it all was too dramatic example of existence of autocracy in our country ....

http://profit.ndtv.com/news/economy/article-bjp-favours-abolition-of-income-sales-excise-tax-374631?ch=34434
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) favours abolition of income, sales and excise tax and the party may include it in its vision document to be unveiled ahead of general elections next year.
...
Former BJP president Nitin Gadkari, who is in charge of preparing the party's vision document, 'India Vision 2025', said that the party is deliberating the matter.
...
"We were talking about tax and although we have not decided as yet...there is a suggestion of complete abolition of income, sales and excise tax," he said at a function on political agenda of political parties.
...
Mr Gadkari said that the total revenue of the country is Rs. 14 lakh crore and 1.5 lakh bank branches are operating in the country presently. "If we abolish these taxes and if we apply around 1 or 1.5 per cent of expenditure or transaction tax, then we will get revenue to the tune of around Rs. 40,000 lakh crore. So those 3.5 lakh people who are using beacons of various colours now, they will not be required anymore as no tribunals or commissioners will be required," he said.
"So I think along with transparency, there should be time-bound result-oriented administration coupled with right way of economic reforms and if it so happens, then the 1.5 lakh banks operating now will become 10 lakhs. There is another suggestion of doing away with Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes...we are deliberating on these proposals as we want transparency..." Gadkari said.
...
Echoing Mr Gadkari's thoughts, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said that there was no shortage of resources in the country and "if one had auctioned the natural resources properly, one did not have to have income tax at all".
...
Giving details, he said if the government had auctioned 2G spectrum, it would have got at least Rs. 1.76 lakh crore as extra which went to private hands.
He maintained if the government had auctioned the coal blocks, it would have got Rs. 11 lakh crore and by auctioning the oil sites, Rs. 24 lakh crore could have been realised.
What a good thought :)

500 and 1000 notes part is good. Can stop black money.I guess if big notes are stopped and only tax will be on bank transactions then it may be possible.No income tax will be a boon :)
