Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

Govrnment privatizing railways by stealth, claims Congress

NEW DELHI, Dec 30, 2014: Congress has termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion that railways would not be privatized as bluff, saying that it is already headed for it in view of the Union Cabinet's green signal to 100% FDI in railways.

"The government is privatizing Indian Railways by stealth, by no transparency. Without calling it privatization, it is privatizing every aspect of the railways. Only the driver that runs the engine will remain a government servant. But rest is all privatized," said Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

Singhvi termed the move as yet another "somersault" by BJP, arguing that Modi government's actions at present are not in sync with the promises its leaders made on the campaign trail in the run-up to the general elections and soon after taking over at Centre.

Congress leader said Modi's strong pitch for privatization in railways in March 2013 contradicts his statement made in Varanasi this month that ruled out its privatization.

"The government's stand on Indian Railways is another addition to its list of U-turns as there is contradiction between what Modi said in his campaign, what he said after coming into power, and what he is saying at present," he said.

Accusing Modi of "trying to pull wool over the eyes of people" and making "casual and irresponsible" statements on the issues of privatization in railways, Singhvi said the time has come that Congress releases another booklet on "U-turns" of the government.
