Priorities in a mess : what's new ?

Bhopal gas tragedy minister Babulal Gaur has sought Rs116 crore from the Centre to build " a memorial of international standard". Earlier relief, received from Union Carbide, meant for 1,05,000 people was distributed amongst 5,79,274, ensuring insufficient support to the sufferers. The government could not top up this aid with its own contribution.

Now, two austerity conscious ministries of the ruling UPA government are in a bind over whether to pay Rs 3600 crores or Rs 1400 crores for 12 helicopters , to be used to expressly ferry VIP's around.

Then reports indicate that Naxals are now procuring bullet proof jackets for their leaders, while the Mumbai police couldn't care less where late Hemant Karkare's so called bullet proof jacket was, one year after 26/11.

Do we have a huge talent in the Government for doing the wrong thing ?

The government has a huge talent for doing the right thing - for politicians and officials.

I agree with Mr.Sharma...Who are we? We don't exist in their grand scheme of things...

We are the subjects and they are the masters.
I just read a report which says that now the ministers are claiming medical reimbursement to the extent of Rs 10 lakhs in a year.How genuine is the claim is any one's guess.
This muck will stop some day.
