Icon4 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?


Oil minister M Veerappa Moily said that the government planning to close all petrol pumps in India by 8 pm to 8am in order to save fuel and reduce our import bills. This in turn could help the battered rupee and current account deficit according to him.

I have a few thoughts on this but I would like to hear the thoughts of others before putting down my own. So please tell us what you think about this move and if it will help the economy in any way.

Re: 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?

Very good move. I support everything Congress does, they are the true savior of Indians. But I further propose a Ban on vehicles. Everybody should use Tongas, Bullock Carts and Bicycle. This should help with individual's health, environment and recover the battered rupee. Additionally we will be able to save on LPG, since Cow dung would be freely available on the road to pickup and use as fuel at home.

Re: 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?

This is a stupid idea !! thesee idiots are loosing their mental balance, if any was left.

they are not doing stuff for the economy but are using these ideas to instill more hate and fear from them.. ! in the minds of the people.. !

But this is an idea fortunately and I sure hope this does not see the day !!

Re: 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?

Best idea ever,i remember the Nirbhaya incident . Some moron minister or mp said that girls should not go outside their house after 7PM and that will prevent and decrease the cases of rape .

Re: 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?

Now the PMO has come out and said that such proposals would or should be shot down and the oil minister is now saying that he was just sharing the idea as it came from the people !!

That is the lame useless people we have in power !

Re: 8pm to 8am Petrol Pump Curfew ?

Preposterous! Why don't they just go ahead and import oil from Iran in rupees for a change.

It isn't uncommon knowledge that the $ rates are how US meddles with the economies of developing countries to keep them in check. Its high time the government stops sucking up to them. You have got FDI right? What good was it without better policies?

NDA didn't care about UN sanctions when they tested nukes yet their government fell when the onion prices soared.
Now we have plethora of corruption and scandals, with inflation at all time high along with rupee at its weakest and abysmal industrial output. Is that the legacy this government of leading economists will leave us with?

FFS start up a dialog with China or Russia and send US lobbies a message. Increase grain prices for exports and protect your farmers. This food security bill won't by itself help anyone. The US can eat all the subsidized corn they want if they want to have all the oil they need. Friggin wimps.

I don't care about jewelry, but Diesel and petrol prices hurt. You ought to be promoting services and industry, not starving it.

. . . . .
Some high-level officers in the Government of India suggested importing petroleum from Iran in exchange for gold, in January of 2012. A few days later, US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton came to visit the Foreign Minister of Goverment of India. She reminded him of similar attempts by Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi in their respective countries. I don't know why, but afterwards everyone forgot about this idea.

Same thoughts here. By these stupid bills they are trying to win the poor, the minorities. And who is/will be bearing all the pressure of it all, Middle Class, why? Because they/we are not the vote banks. This time around I have pledged as well that I will Vote.
