Highway treat: Sonia and Manmohan

Get ready to be greeted by Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh every 25 kms when you travel on national highways.

1500 billboards are being put up with photos of the duo in UP, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa, Delhi, MP, Chhatisgarh, West Bengal, Orissa, Karnataka, Kerala, Punjab, J&K, Himachal, Assam and other NE states.

As per the Times of India, each billboard will cost Rs 10 lakhs while the Economic Times puts the figure at Rs 4 lakhs. That means anything between Rs 60 crores to Rs 150 crores is going to spent on them.

When the BJP was in power, the Congress had criticised it for putting up similar billboards with photos of Vajpayee and Khanduri. Now the BJP is returning the favour.

As always, the tax payer has no say.

The tax payer pays a part of his/her hard earned money to the govt. - the govt. spends free money on itself...That's the reality of life - sigh!

We as silent spectators have lost moral authority to ask questions.
Whoever forms the Govt in the centre,will continue to take PAPPU for granted. Be it BJP or Congress.
Ultimately, we are the ones who will pay for the hoardings
