Public relations?

Mid Day reports:
After depriving bar girls of their livelihood, the government has taken its moral policing to the international level. The ministry of overseas Indian affairs has called for an urgent inquiry into the exodus of bar girls to the Gulf, to ‘protect the country’s image’.
That's right. First you take away their jobs, even though there is nothing wrong about the manner in which they earn their livelihood. Then you stop them from going elsewhere to look for work. That does a lot of good for the "country’s image," doesn't it?
