AUSTERITY TAMASHA BY UPA GOVERNMENT
Mrs.Sonia Gandhi, Shri Rahul Gandhi, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Shri Pranab Mukherjee and other leaders of UPA have now-a-days occupied the captions of TV Channels and the print media for taking recourse to journey by “Economy Class” in air flights as a part of their ‘so-called’ austerity drive. But they are silent as to whether they have cut down the expenditure incurred on their accommodations, security, attendants and other facilities, amenities & perquisites to keep pace with the present hard days of existence. Besides, nothing is said about Mamata Banerjee and six other Central Ministers belonging to TMC. Most of the days they are in West Bengal engaged in provincial politics. She has skipped 7 out of 12 Cabinet meetings. The entire Railway Ministry has been shifted to Kolkata from New Delhi. Expenditure is made extravagantly to fulfil her whims and caprices. She has become the most costly Minister of India. Moreover, instead of performing their constitutionally allotted duties as Central Ministers of the entire nation, she and her colleagues are hell bent on inciting violence in different parts of the state every now and then using their portfolios forgetting that huge expenditure is incurred on them from the exchequer for serving the entire nation. Their activities trigger the impression to gain ground that they are Ministers for Bengal only. Dr. Manmohan Singh should place before the nation immediately the performance record of Mamata Banerjee and her Central Ministers from West Bengal.
