150 Rf for a pickup trip what the ...?

its been reported that some taxi drivers are taking 150rf for a trip on the night market. what is wrong with people i understasnd that the petrol is expensive and all. but just like that taking high fees from people is unacceptable atleast they should publicly announce that they would do it. i wonder what the transport ministry will do about it. the rich gets richer and the poorer gets more poorer what has this country gone to http://www.jazeera.com.mv/posts/view/2990

the contined quorum sickeness

guess majlis is infected with quorum sickness. the last was yesterday at the start of the sittings there seems to be more than 80 members present and it is stated that 62 voted for the motion od presidential member saleem but after the interval it seems only 56 members were present and the sitings was cancelled. guess DRP members came to just vote and go. its probably their playground

palimentary gets more support

the poll i posted on my blog suggest that most people wants parlimentary system. i post another poll lets see how it turns out

police can vote????

Police hq has indicated that they can vote in the referendum. hmm funnny thing afte all these days they suddenly said that this time they can vote. they argue that its not stated in law that they cant vote so what about the armed forces. if they are to vote then the credibility of the result of the vote is in question. its hard to beleive that they would vote against the government say even if they want http://www.haveeru.com.mv/?page=details&id=55799

29 member issue

they are saying tomorrow they will retake a vote on the 29 member issue. the sad thing is if it happens we wont be able to see it live on webcast or anything. we would see the sittings on 11 o clock on majlis miadhu on tvm. atleast they could webstream it on the web when tvm sends it. after all tvm 8pm news is also webcasted. maybe with the new broadcasters now in action we may be able to hear it live atleast thats a wish i hope will come true.

we suffered 17 years of portugese rule due to male' people

just read an article in haveeru that the independence was due to the crisis in addu at that time maybe true but we never say that we suffered 17 years of portugeese rule due to male' people. even now the "raajetherey people" are classed as people who are not very educated but it took a "raajetherey" "ganbulhi katheeb" to rid us from the portugeese which had its base in male' and the people there were too afraid to do abything. coming to the near future it was a person from the island who is responsible for the saviour of this nation from the tamils in 1988. if it wasnt for the brave hussain adam's quick response and immediate resistance to the tamils we would have been in tamils rule now. we got to stop blaming the people of atolls for every bad thing that happen.

Reservation on 95.2

i was excited when i heard that a private broadcaster was going to begin operations. but i had questions about their independance when i heard that the president inaugrated it. not that it is a problem but i though it was privately owned and...... anyway i managed to listen to the programs of it around 9:30 last night and what i heard was a segement of australian radeo. i though it would be dhivehi broadcasting but maybe they reserved that time for english broadcasting . i managed to hear what they were broadcasting today and at that time around 7:00 they were broadcasting hindi songs with now and then channel identification. maybe they are not fully ready but why then did they start broadcasting is it to get the name of the first private broadcaster or they wanted to broadcast before asnaa which said they will start service on july 26th well lets wait and see what they have in line ....

MDP against all others wants a parliamentary

MDP is against all other political party wants a parliamentary system. and the campaign of parliamentary or presidential has turned personnel and people are not getting the good information they need as to what the best system is. the vote will shape up how the future of our country would be and it is very important that the people be given the right information. point to be noted is although all other political party wants a presidential system each has their own interpretation of a presidential system or rather each party has its own customised version of the system which confuses the people more. hope somone independent if there is any in the country to educate the people about the two sytem rather than turning it to a political game . its the fututure of the country and nobody has the right to play games.
