News Item. Restaurant Business needs 15 licenses for operations.

Author says that Arvind Kejriwal should not be hated but his good work should be appreciated.
In this news item read about Anna Hazare's movement hijack attempt, the odd-even scheme, building construction sites being the biggest particulate matter polluters for the environment and/but this is already on the Delhi Govt.'s agenda, done away with management quota in private schools, very quickly made flyover, easy on the pocket water billing system, uniforms, books given by Govt., mohalla clinics, and the licensing of restaurants in Delhi.
"... I am a food writer and my work brings me in contact with the top honchos of the restaurant industry. It is the most licensed sector of our economy (you need 14-16 licences, to be renewed annually, to open one restaurant in Delhi) and therefore bribes keep it lubricated (in restaurant accounts, bribes are generally put under the head of "flower decorations!"). Now, when the chief of the National Restaurant Association of India, Riyaaz Amlani, informed me how Team Kejriwal had made the system transparent and made the licensing process, especially for big-ticket events, as seamless as possible by making it online, I knew we had a Chief Minister who was quietly making a difference, even as his critics kept snapping at his heals and he had to contend with a Lieutenant Governor hell-bent on not allowing him to function. Riyaaz Amlani is not a political animal; he's a young entrepreneur who's delighted that there's one city in the country where you can open a restaurant without spending all your time in government offices. ..."
"... Kejriwal has re-defined the meaning of people in our public discourse. Finally, People Like Them are getting precedence over People Like Us. "
