Is it only me or the government is actually acting like they’re rushing to complete their target of ‘Achhe Din’ towards the end of the year? Although we would’ve appreciated, the only technical glitch is, some of the steps they’ve taken are blatantly ridiculous.
In a rather surprising move, the union government bans the sale and production of e-cigarettes on Wednesday, September 18.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman: The Union Cabinet has given approval to ban e-cigarettes. It means the production, manufacturing, import/export, transport, sale, distribution, storage and advertising related to e-cigarettes are banned. pic.twitter.com/qayCrQHPZp

The production, manufacturing, import/export, transport, sale, distribution, storage and even advertisements related to e-cigarettes are now banned under this legislation.
Wait, let me get a hold of this! This is how Twitterati reacted over the fact that only E-Cigarette is banned. See for yourself:

The government have no basic research of the #ecigarettes . Here's a small basic comparison which might be useful. For those who say e-cigarettes are hazardous, they should have a research on the existing legal "cigarettes". It's an alternative used by people to quit smoking. pic.twitter.com/eh3i7v3tH8

We’re all for Modi but this very step doesn’t even deserve the benefit of the doubt!
