Indian Blueprint - Inflated Claims?

Today we talk about the recent inflation numbers as well as the Malaysian Indian Blueprint. We ask if the Blueprint can make a major difference from policy perspective, if it is gender sensitive and if it constitutes the first step in recognising the contributions of the community. And on inflation we explore strategies to contain inflation which reached an all time hight recently - strengthen the Ringgit; cut corruption, reduce procurement costs and cut leakage; cut import taxes and excise duties; and finally enforce anti-profiteering laws and price control mechanisms.
