#Parlimentarians #Subsidy #IndianEconomy

#IndianParliamentarians are highly equipped with multiple perks and privileges to such an extent that they all seem to be below the poverty line in India.

Haven't we heard umpteen news, cover stories, dialogue, debates over subsidy culture of india and how it is undermining the health of Indian economy. PM Narendra Modi & his Central Ministers have addressed this grave issue on several occasions especially asking rich people. The Indians would be surprised to know what kind of subsidized benefits they are enjoying in this country. 

Broadly speaking, 
MPs literally do not have to spend any money on anything. Even the meals inside the parliament are heavily subsidized. There are a series of perks and privileges they are entitled to like salaries, classified allowances (constituency, daily, office expense, travel allowances etc.), Air & Rail traveling facilities, medical facilities, accommodation, land lines, mobiles, facilities to ex-members of parliament, pensionary benefits and so on.

It reminds me of our former PM, Manmohan Singh who had spent extravagantly Rs.7k per person when he had thrown dinner party for all the political parties of India which was catered to Indians by print & electronic media. 

Virtually, (MPs) they live life kind size in India !

For an example, the Govt is pretty comfortable to part with huge chunk of loan of 7200 Cr. to Sugar Barons of this country without interests and hardly shows willingness to help to pay reasonably to our farmers for their crops.

And with regard to farmers and poor people of india there seems to be always shortage of funds in govt. treasury. Around 3 Lakhs farmers committed suicide in past 20 years and we still hear every dayhow farmers are committing suicide in penury every hr in India that shows amply they have been deprived of such benefits all these years post independence. What is more, yesterday, in so-called developed Gujarat, a farmer, Haresh Rabadia, committed suicide by hanging from ceiling due to the crop loss and subsequently her distressed wife, Bhavisha, who was aggrieved to such an extent after his death that she self-immolated over his dead body. 


The message that inspired me to write this post is as follows:

मोदी जी सारी योजना बंद कर दो।  सिर्फ संसद  जैसी कैंटीन हर दस किलोमीटर पर खुलवा दो।  सारे लफ़ड़े खत्म। 29 रुपये में भरपेट खाना मिलेगा। 80 % लोगों को घर चलाने का लफड़ा खत्म। न सिलिंडर लाना न राशन और घरवाली भी ख़ुश।  चारों तरफ खुशियां ही रहेंगी। फिर हम कहेंगे सबका साथ सबका विकास ! =सबसे बड़ा फायदा १ र किलो गेहूं नहीं देना पड़ेगा और अरुण जेटली जी को ये भी नहीं कहना पड़ेगा कि मिडिल क्लास लोग अपने हिसाब से घर चलायें।
