Time has come when we Indians have to come to terms with the living style of our modern Maharajas, of course at our cost. As usual, we look the other side.
After having been sworn in as the external affairs minister and minister for state for external affairs,S M Krishna and Shashi Tharoor,respectively, very conveniently moved into Five star hotels in Delhi. They both have been allotted official accommodation, but for Vaastu reasons, Krishna moves into Mauraya Shereton and Tharoor into TajMansingh.
Krishna‘s presidential Suite tariff is said to be Rs 1.75 lakhs per day. Till date the bill amount would add up to over Rs two Crores.
Tharoor’s hotel room tariff is said to be about Rs 50000/per day.
Between both of them they are spending more than Rs two laks per day as room tariff.
It takes a Pranab Mukherjee to remind them that they should be staying in Andhra Bhawan and Kerala Bhavan respectively. But these modern day Maharajas cannot do without five star stay and five star foods.
Till date, the hotel bills for these two modern Maharajas is said to be more than Rs 2 crores.
