New Delhi. In a major decision which is going to change the way people look at natural resources, Government of India has declared ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’ a natural resource and has created rules to regulate its usage like any other natural resources.
Government’s initiative is inspired from a report published by a leading investment bank which points out recent events where ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’ yielded huge profits for people involved.
Be it Chennai Express’ box office performance or AAP’s grand debut in Delhi elections, both have a ‘Aam Aadmi’ connection. While the former capitalized on famous dialogue ‘Dont Underestimate The Power Of A Common Man’, the latter’s whole agenda was around Aam Aadmi and even Salman’s coming movie ‘Jai Ho’ is using a ‘Aam Aadmi’ centric dialogue in its trailer, says the report explaining business potential of ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’.
“It’s a good opportunity for government to generate some extra revenue. We have already witnessed its power and can’t distribute it for free. And above all it’s a renewable source,” told Kapil Sibal while talking to media at a press conference.
“From now on, people using the term ‘Aam Aadmi’ for their personal benefit must pay accordingly,” Sibal added further.
Each year, central government will be issuing license to use ‘Aam Aadmi’ term to movie makers, political parties, news channels and other similar establishments depending on worth of their projects.
As per allocation rules, getting a license of using ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’ is lower in rural areas as they are not that close to internet and TV. While in urban areas, license cost is much higher.
Sources say that one of the triggers that compelled government to take this decision was a CAG report that said, Congress party suffered from a notional loss of around rupees 5000 crore by letting AAP use the ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’ free of cost.
“In Delhi, AAP used it in a monopolistic way. Had it been under government control, it wouldn’t have been possible for a new party like AAP to pay the huge license amount of ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’. This drove Congress MLAs out of power and it will result in a loss of around 5k crore to Congress over next next five years,” said an ex-MLA from Delhi.
Government is also looking to channelize ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’ in order to generate energy.
“Many times it happens that people are angry with government and they want to yell and abuse us which they do on Twitter and Facebook. So we will be creating ‘Anger Venting Hall’ in each city where people could come and simply yell and that sound energy will be converted into other forms of energy,” revealed a senior government official talking about future prospects of ‘Aam Aadmi Sentiment’.
