Permit Raj in a brand new avatar - Jaithirth Rao, Tehelka
In the bad old days before Narasimha Rao liberated us from the Licence Permit Raj, it took a minimum of three years (the average was closer to seven years) to obtain an industrial licence.

Verbatim

Taslima said something that was truly horrifying and I really think the Bengalis who missed the program on CNN/IBN should know about it. She said that Mamata is close to Islamic fanatics and that is the reason that Taslima is not welcomed in the state. She has five fatwas against her by these fanatics in West Bengal and three against her in Bangladesh. Talk about vote bank politics – it seems Mamata will sell her state for votes. We do know that she is totally insecure about her position as the chief minister so much so that if there is a rape of a woman she will deny it and try and hide it as a conspiracy; or if there is a bomb blast she will try and say it was a local problem when it is actually terrorists from Bangladesh and her police is so compromised that they don’t have the guts to stand up to her.
