Karnataka spends Rs.35 crores for 10days

It was not one crore or two crores but a multi-crore effort without any palpable results due to a large number of legislators missing in the assembly. The winter session of the legislature which concluded here on Friday cost the exchequer a huge amount of Rs. 35 crores for just ten days.
This year winter session, started on an embarrassing note with the assembly having to be adjourned, for some time due to lack of minimum number of legislators on day one on Nov.13, which reflected disinterest of ministers and legislators. A large number of legislators presented themselves occasionally or not seen at all.
The winter session in Karnataka state assembly was to be held from November 13, for 10 days at Suvarna Vidhan Soudha near Halga to pass many key bills. According to reports, it is worthy to note the point, all hotel lodging reservations made for the required staff, MLA’s, MLC’s and their secretariat staff etc., not only caused annoyance to the common public but also incurred huge losses to the government as absentees are high in this session.
For VIPs, Fairfield by Marriot is booked every year and the same system is followed this year too. It is estimated that roughly 100 plus rooms must have been booked to accommodate the legislators. Looks like no one has an inkling at whose expense the money is getting wasted and also no work getting accomplished.
