FM asks Shashi Tharoor, Krishna to vacate 5-star suites
Completely taken aback by the decision of the Finance Minister, Shashi Tharoor defended his decision to stay in five star hotel and said 'It's a non story. I wasn't spending taxpayer money or using any government privilege. I'd much rather be in my offici
FINANCE MINISTER Pranab Mukherjee has asked minister of state for external affairs Shashi Tharoor to vacate the luxury accommodation, he is occupying since the last few weeks.

Shashi Tharoor, according to reports has been living in a luxury Five Star Hotel of the capital as his official residence is not ready yet. This attracted the ire of many senior party leaders-according to them, it is sending a wrong signal across the country. At a time when common man is combating a wide range of issues in the current year namely drought and price hike in daily use commodity, some of the members of the cabinet of Dr Manmohan Singh are enjoying luxurious life in the city’s five star hotels. Another minister, external minister SM Krishna has also been facing flak for his staying in luxurious five star hotel.  

There are questions on why is he not using the services of Kerala house? As Shashi Tharoor is a fitness aficionado, he says Kerala house doesn’t offer any gym facility.      

Completely taken aback by the decision of the Finance Minister, Shashi Tharoor defended his decision to stay in five star hotel and said, “It’s a non story. I wasn’t spending taxpayer money or using any government privilege. I’d much rather be in my official house.”   

Given Shashi’s credibility, no body can cast doubt on his intentions but his decision to stay in five star hotel has given rise to a  new debate. Well just think how our honorable leaders are setting examples for the common man:

• UP Chief Minister Mayawati using exchequer’s money to build her own statues
• Gaziabad don DP Yadav and leader allegendly involved in many unlawful activities
• BJP MP Babubhai in human trafficking case
• Lalu Yadav in fodder scam
• Mulayam Singh asking UP voters to ward off English and computer education
• Tamilnadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi attacks lord Rama and says he was a drunkard
• Former deputy Chief Minister of Haryana Chander Mohan dillydallying with his girl friend Anuradha Bali who herself was senior government officer
