Where our tax money gets swallowed

Once my Professor said in class, " "Any begger in the country can hold your collar & ask you what the hell you are doing here" . He has every right to question you. You may be feeling that your parents are bearing the expense of your study. No, what fees u pay is just mere amount.Each individual in the country is responsible for the facility you get here. These labs, these equiptment in the labs are bought by the tax payers money. Even a begger who buys a 2 RS soap pays a tax for that. So you are liable to whole country."

But there are some people who drink,eat, sleep make merry on tax payers money without any guilt, which begger dares to hold thier collar & ask them, "What the hell you are doing Here, you shameless creatures"

For 534 MPs, the expense for 5 years : 8,54,40,00,000 (nearly 855 cores) And they are elected by THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, by the largest democratic process in the world, not intruded into the parliament on their own or by any qualification. This is how all our tax money is been swallowed and price hike on our regular commodities....... Think of the great democracy we have.............
Recently Sonia Gandhi Hired the flight from Jet airways, for her personal Visit to Russia. Who will bear the expense. Government? From where do government get money from. These so called leaders, with thier low self confidence with the lust of power, contenst in two constituency. Bellary & Ameti. Then again waste crores to conduct re-election.
I really wonder sometime, why do we need this type of leaders. Who wants Useless leaders, Corrupt bearaucrats. It is high time now, putting up with this sorts of people.

That’s fantastic statistics...
Actually no one wants such leaders... bt unless the youth takes charge nothing can be done... and its sounds so simple when its put on paper but I’m sure it requires an effort similar to freedom struggle.

Your post reminds me of the movie “YUVA”… there is a whole chain of these hopeless leaders supported by local gundas… and the “who cares (ye to chalta hain)” attitude of aam public…
and as rightly said we all are paying for their luxuries

Good post ;-)

Puneet:- Kya Kare Politics is hell.

Gogoi :- Thanks for hopping to my space. Ya, In many situation in life one can do least, many times even in personal life too. People may fool us, it is just saying “u have fooled me, but don’t think I am an idiot, I know what u did, & doing” Helplessness is different then being a Real fool in life.

I do have a corrupt mind & very wild thought 

thanks for reminding that "Human beings are essentially corrupt"... though not aware in what context it was said, am sure politicians of our country sanctify it. .....To add one of my wild thoughts, I feel, it is more dangerous and contagious when common people think and act like a crooked politician.
