New Austerity Measures of the UPA government
After the austerity measures announced with so much of fanfare by the government, here comes another measure which is right in tune with the "austere" ways of the UPA government. One is at a loss when one asks the question as to why MPs/Ministers need to take with them:
the spouse or legitimate children or step-children, as also the Minister's companions or relatives, to travel on their own or with the Minister.
Why not extend this "austerity" measure to their "illegitimate" children too!!! Specially because this bill was passed without as much as a whimper.
