The recent drama by the Congress is Austerity Drama.That is by enforcing( have to use this word as even SM.Krishna and Sharad Pawar will agree with this word!!!)ministers to travel by economy class in Planes they are going to save crores and crores which inturn will be used to procure food materials and distribute them to poor in ration!!What a joke!!
The reason Congress states as the reason for the need for austerity is Drought and recession..!!
Rahul went onto performing an Oscar winning act by travelling in train to Ludhiana..
As Sarojini Naidu commented in Gandhi's austerity as "Much of the taxpayer's money is being spent to keep Gandhi in poverty!!"..That is Gandhiji used to travel in 3rd class in trains such that the whole compartment will be reserved for him!!!wow what an austerity!!That should be the first limelight drama staged by the Congress i think.
There was also a truth that came out that only 500/- bucks were saved by Rahul's travel in train..because that much amount of money had to be spent to carry along with him security assistants etc..etc..!!!
So why such an unwanted drama?Whats the need?will the prices of essential commodities going to come down by such dramas?
Why not Congress stress Ministers to accept a salary cut and other useless provisions for so called "poor" MP's such as free 1lakh phone calls free travel free electricity?
Because Congress isnt actually interested to bear the burden of recession by doing all these..instead they just want to show off..mere tokenism isnt going to do anything like Mayawati erecting statues of Dalit leaders calling it as act to imporve the livelihood of Dalits isnt anyway different from waht Congress is doing.
-Instead they should cut off the unwanted 100 cars going in front and back as convoys and they should also cut the concession of Minsters in telephone bills electricity bills ,Bungalows and they should cut off unwanted flying to foreign countries.
-Cut off the unwanted lights glowing 5 kms around the circumference of the stage where Minster's are taking part..
-Take actions to ensure proper food commodities are procured by the Govt and ensure a price check..
That'll be thee true austerity..mere tokenism wont fetch any fruit for the nation
