“The UPA government has insured its political future with a Rs 60,000-crore cheque. The UPA will not pay for it but you, me and every taxpayer of the country will. If not today, tomorrow or three years down the line we have to pay this. The country’s taxpayers will pay to ensure the existing political combine returns to power. In short, the UPA is shamelessly trying to loot the country’s precious resources to further its own political ambitions…. Are we going to be mute spectators to this?
“The immediate questioning has centered around the source of funding for this largesse. But this is a secondary question. The primary one being: who has given political parties the right to appropriate funds? Will Parliament approve this mega ‘loan’ mela?“

The election that takes place every five years can be considered as a war & winners are always politicians. Once they win, they start plundering the country.
Unfortunately you have no options.
Every political party in India today resort to to the same gimmic and hence those sitting in the opposition remains tongue tied. The electorates clap when their party (sic) comes to power, not realising that their pocket is being picked.
It’s time taxpayers went out, voted and made their presence felt. That’s when these rougues will start thinking of them
The Middle class Tax payers are all fools! They like fast food. Mr. FM is a smart Tamilian. He gives relief to the Middle class in Tax by about 10 to 20000 and collects double of it in a different form. Who is bothered about the future? See the Rail budget. The same story.
All this happens, because we allow these people to play with the public funds for their own benefit.
No vote for Congress or their cronies. It is a good thing that a section of farmers are benefited. Read today that farmers who have not defaulted in their repayment will not get the waiver! I’m sure every local polititian would have a farmer loan. Give the farmers a fishing rod. How long will the Govt use tax payers money to buy them fish? give subsidies, 0% loans to repay the older loans. extend the tenure. Revise support price of crops. most of the farmers have already sold or mortgaged their lands to Reliance et al.
