After immense pressure put by NewsX on the political parties who abetted in the decision to send netas for an expensive junket to the Andaman Islands, they finally admitted that the trip was no study tour but a jaunt. But the admission also raised a question.
The expenditure of the study tour will be Rs 14 lakh which will cover the ministers’ availing lodging facilities in five-star hotels. The ministers have also planned a trip to Cochi which might, according to sources, extend up towards Sikkim.
If this is indeed a jaunt dressed up as a study tour then should these netas be made to pay back the immense money drawn from the public exchequer?
