The Government as Shopkeeper: A Hint

As nobody has cracked the question about the government being a shopkeeper yet, I am providing a hint.

Quite some time after this person made this statement, he/ she became a member of parliament. However, while in parliament he/ she did not really bother about government being a part of all the stuff mentioned: cooperatives, corporations, airlines, et cetera. Instead, he/ she focused largely on the welfare of schoolgoing children, arguing that they were overburdened.

Try now.

    R K Narayan..

    Your hint made it too easy, though I should have guessed from the writing style. Without the hint I would have guessed Nani Palkhiwala.

    RK Narayan is in fact correct.

    I was almost hoping nobody would get this, and that I could use this at the Unmaad Open (suitably modified, of course).
