Crores of Rupees spent on flowers decoration.
In our country where more than sixty percent of population is poor and live in villages , thousands of people die each day because of improper health care and malnutrition, roads are not available to all and where available are full of serial potholes, drinking water is not available to all and if water supply is available it is packed with disease whether the expenditure of Lacs of rupees from Tax payer pocket on decoration by flowers in ministers Bungalow and offices , can be justified. . Indian oil ( Refinery Division ) spent Rs 4 lacs in a year on such flowers decorations.
Ministry of Textile came out with startling figure of Rs. 5 lacs. If we add up the figures of government offices , it will be in crores of rupees in a year. The information was collected through a RTI application .
Can this unproductive expenditure from poor pocket be justified. Should we not spend this money on health care and education of poor.
