Our netas have never been shy of ego trips. But this is a 400 crore ego trip in Uttar Pradesh which will leave you stunned.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will soon be shifting to his new office which is not only the state of art but can boast of many ‘first-of-its-kind’ features. The new multi-storied building will house many ministers and senior officers and will cost you, the taxpayer a whopping 400 crores.
At a time when Uttar Pradesh is in the financial doldrums, with as many as 50 districts declared drought hit, is this lavish display of wealth really necessary? And more importantly, will this arrogance backfire less than a year before elections in the state?
