It seems politicians are the busiest people in certain countries and there is no dearth of issues that can keep them active and noisy. Ruling parties can set in motion several “welfare” measures that will have to undergo objections or unsatisfactory response from opposition parties. One of the issues that could trigger protests from opposition parties with the support of people who are supposed to be the beneficiaries is freebies. The next result is the indefinite postponement of the so-called welfare measures much to the satisfaction of the opposition and the ruling parties. Of course, the welfare measures will get the green signal from both parties. Frankly speaking, many states have become land of freebies.
