*THIS OFFER IS VALID FOR MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT ONLY. NOT FOR THE COMMON MAN, NOT ANYWHERE ELSE IN INDIA.
AN OPEN-LETTER TO EVERY COMMON MAN & TAX-PAYER
The Common Man, Tax-payer,
Go through these words by our Hon'ble Finance Minister: "No tax-breaks for the common man. We have no money."
Hon'ble Defence Minister: "There will be a delay in One-Rank One-Pension for war-veterans. We have no money."
Hon'ble Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi: "People who can afford please surrender your LPG subsidy. We have no money"
After Modi's call on LPG, more than 2.8 lakh people have surrendered their subsidies resulting in gross savings of upto INR 100 Crores. Where every common man who has the ability to afford LPG, surrendered their subsidies, why are the Members of Parliament getting such a huge subsidy of up to 950% on Food items in the Parliament Canteen. While the Government is saying it doesn't have money, then why is it giving subsidy for the MP's. Can't they afford buying food without subsidy.
Have a look at the Salaries and amenities of each MP:
Even after getting a 6-digit salary and amenities per month, can't they surrender their subsidy on the food they eat. YOU are paying their
food cheques. All the subsidies they avail, are fulfilled by the taxes YOU pay.
YOU give up the subsidy on LPG. You pay your taxes. So show me a place in India, where YOU get subsidy upto 900% on the food you eat or a menucard in a hotel with a single digit price.
You fight and argue with Customer Support when you lose Rs.10 in your mobile for some song activation. You ask bus conductors, auto-drivers for remaining amount while you pay the money and argue with them for even Rs.2. But why are you paying cheques for our hon'ble MPs who can afford it without subsidy.
Question our Hon'ble Prime Minister who asked affordable Indians give up their subsidies, but isn't planning or atleast thinking of quitting subsidy on the MPs Food Feast.
