On a 'Good Friday' - PM Silences Critics!

Giving a clarion call of “Enough” to “Policy Paralysis”
The “Underachiever” unleashed a Reforms catharsis!
FDIs - 49% in Aviation and 51% in Retail;
Let’s wait and watch what all these entail.
Wal-Mart, Carrefour and Tesco are on the prowl;
Brit Airways and Virgin too there cheek by jowl!
While Indian retail marts may feel the heat,
Spirits of Kingfisher Mallya - quite upbeat!
FDI limit increased in the Broadcast Sector -
Will the weepy soaps get some x-factor..?!
Friday’s Sensex surged on Reforms galore -
Boosted investors’ wealth by one lac crore!
While Rupee showed an immediate ascend,
Interest Rates are soon likely to descend.
Inflation has taken an immediate jump;
Markets’ sinews are ready for a pump!
Flooded are our great news channels
With those so-called Experts’ Panels,
Matching each other in lung power;
Calling one another’s grapes sour!
Ailing economy has received an FDI dose
Government strikes a “No Rollbacks” pose!
Looks like at last it's election time folks!
Watch out for some ObaManmo jokes!
