PUBLIC FUNDS CAN’T BE FLUSHED DOWN THE DRAIN by Aires Rodrigues

PUBLIC FUNDS CAN’T BE FLUSHED DOWN THE DRAIN by Aires Rodrigues

The Rs 17.60 lakhs spent on Narendra Modi’s May 26th oath taking ceremony was an unnecessary waste of public funds. Similarly in Goa on March 9th 2012 Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar squandered Rs 11 lakhs of tax payer’s money. In the current bad economic times austerity and fiscal accountability has to be the key guiding factor. Every paisa spent from the State exchequer has to be meticulously accounted for.

A government is assessed and evaluated on its good governance and its socio economic steps to bolster the welfare of the people. It is not the glossy manifesto nor the cosmetic steps but the concrete measures taken that counts. The curb on Ministerial foreign jaunts is a step in the right direction taken by Narendra Modi but there has to be consistency and a close monitoring of all public spending. In all that it does the government must function within the framework of law and the laid down democratic principles of our Constitution
