Most of the Indians are almost dying under the pressure of food inflation. Vegetables, Pulses and other commodities of daily consumption are out of reach for those who put in honest 8hrs of work daily to earn whatever they can to keep the family fed.
But, the case with our Legislatures is not exactly so.Prices of some of the items in the Parliament House canteen are given below. Please don’t get angry,don’t allow your blood to boil, don’t curse any one as we the 100 crore spineless people with our defective vocal chords and weak eyesight deserve exactly what we have –This Government

Tea,Rs1—Soup-Rs.5.50-Dal one Katori,Rs.1.50--Veg Thali (dal, subzi,4 chapatis, rice/pulao, curd and salad)Rs.12.50--Non-veg Thali,Rs.22--Curd rice,Rs.11--Veg pulao,Rs.8--Chicken Biryani,Rs.34--Fish curry and rice,Rs.13--Rajma rice,Rs.7--Tomato rice,Rs.7--Fish fry,Rs.17--Chicken curry,Rs.20.50--Chicken Masala,Rs.24.50--Butter chicken,Rs.27—Chapati,Rs.1a piece--One plate rice,Rs.2—Dosa,Rs.4—Kheer,oneKatori,Rs.5.50--Fruitcake,Rs.9.50—Fruitsalad,Rs.7.

A committee on food management was constituted in 2005 to consider revision of the rates and the service.
"The committee didn't give any report and the rates were not revised,”
"Over Rs.5.3 crore has been allocated during the current financial year for the canteens. The Lok Sabha pays some Rs.3.55 crore and the Rajya Sabha shares the amount to over Rs.1.77 crore," .
The food prices in the Parliament canteen are obviously subsidised. 
Who subsidises it? You do, I do.
These are the same set of selfish,corrupt politicians who object to a poor man getting subsidy on LPG and Diesel, but show no concern about the subsidies they enjoy. 
We subsidise their housing.
We subsidise their electricity bills.
We subsidise their telephone bills.
We subsidise their petrol bills.
We subsidise their and their family air travel.
BUT, they wont allow subsidy on Diesel and LPG.

They have all the subsidies on this earth. And the fondly related Aam Aadmi bears the brunt by paying their taxes.
Time to make our voices be heard...still many many more have to join in this crusade to make our voices louder for these Deaf Ears who are parasites in our lives.

You know Mr. Chowla, earlier in the morning today, my Dad and I were discussing about this inflation...

Despite the major price hike in almost everything, the government keeps claiming inflation is under control or has decreased. And yet, the government employees get a hike in their D.A. Some paradox, isn't it? A hike in the D.A. without a hike in the Dearness! AND on top of everything, they are anyways getting everything subsidized or free as you mentioned!

"In the land of the blind,the one-eyed man is king."
For todays scenario,it should be "In the land of the honest,the corrupt is king."

Unfortunately we have high levels of we go on and on accepting everything,while the rich and the corrupt can enjoy at our expense.

The last line sums it up- The Rot!

Alka Gurha said...

The govt is busy with everything other than governance...Well said.

BK Chowla, said...

Those in their 90s do confirm that we were better off in the British India.

BK Chowla, said...

Just for your information--reportedly for VIPs in Delhi alone, we spend over Rs 200 crores per year as the direct cost

BK Chowla, said...

Inflation is a serious matter where as PM is more concerned about GDP and the Sensex. Our priorities have gone wrong under pressure from the Western world.
In the process, the common man has taken a back seat and no one in the govt cares for us.

BK Chowla, said...

Anu, we all see corruption around us all the time. But, are so reluctant to get and speak.

BK Chowla, said...

Sushant jain,
Congress Ka Hatth amm aadmi Ki Jeb main.

BK Chowla, said...

Unless, there is a peoples movement ,situation will not change. We are surrounded by the corrupt.

BK Chowla, said...

Computer Junkie,
MP salary is an old joke.

BK Chowla, said...

Rot is from top to bottom.

BK Chowla, said...

Alka Gruha,
Governance is of importance to the Govt. They are busy collecting funds via major deals.
