Uttarakhand CM imbibes Atithi Devo Bhava

In India, we not only respect guests, but we also worship them. We are used to giving the best treatment to our guests whenever they visit us.

We guess that’s what Uttarakhand Chief Minister was trying to do when he footed a bill of over Rs. 68 lakh on snacks and refreshment for his guests over the period of 10 months.

CM Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat took office on January 22. In the RTI query, RTI activists of Nainital asked: ‘How much money has Chief Minister Rawat spent on snacks and refreshment for guests in 10 months.’

To this the Government replied that the Chief Minister has spent exactly around Rs. 68,59,865 lakhs on snacks and refreshments. We can’t wrap our heads around that mammoth figure and wonder how many guests exactly visited the CM Office in the past 10 months.

In 2016, Uttar Pradesh was in the news for a similar reason as a RTI query revealed that the Govt. spent around Rs. 9 crore on tea and snacks on its ministers since the Samajwadi Party had assumed power in the state.

Is this a new scam in which lacs are invested over tea and biscuits? We would certainly love to hear your views on the same. Share your views in the comment section below.
