No cajones...Mr. Minister?

A Bill seeking to provide for pictorial warning on tobacco products with the option of displaying skull and cross bones on their packets was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

In a mockery of "good intentions" Mr. Ramdoss makes it optional to display the dreaded 'skull n bones' which is a sign largely feared by the devil-in-disguise tobacco lobby.

To add insult to injury he says that the optional labeling is offered "taking into account the religious sentiments expressed by certain sections of society".

Come on Anbi have a heart or at least the balls to go all the way.

With your logic the "Danger" sign should also be made optional or allowed to be modified as per convenience. That will make the world a lot safer.

P.S. No offense to all you smokers out there. Just pointing out the obvious hypocrisy. I am sure none will be taken as it hardly matters. Right?
