SHOULD we be paying taxes for the president to announce $1million donation at the shrine of Ajmer Sharif during his private visit there?

Should we be paying tax for the so-called private visit of the previous prime minister to Ajmer on an air force jet along with a bunch of freeloaders?

Should we be paying taxes for a luxury lifestyle of legislators who while in chair hardly contributed to anything worthwhile for the masses but enhance their perks and privileges for a lifetime while moving out after their tenure?

Should we be paying taxes for the misuse of unauthorised perks and privileges of those in authority?

We have to pay dear Col saheb, otherwise we would be booked. We should not pay but have to pay as their is no escape for us - the masses - the common man. It is only the influential who can get away and be in the assemblies despite not having NTN.
