Please present a comparison in Price of Petrol in India vs Crude Oil Per Barrel, Rupee vs Dollar and Expenses of MP and Cabinet for a period between 2007 to 2012. Maybe this will enlighten the people of India to bring out another revolution like that of 1857. Maybe Nationalism and sense of Right will prevail.

Why is this such a big issue? President is head of the state- needs to make many more trips in India and around the globe - she is just doing her job- there is a department that sets her budget. Judges sit in the court mostly and don't need to travel around. Don't waste your mind and time debating over things that are not fruitful

@Lawyer, New Delhi - Media is not being irresponsible here, the President is. Agreed that she is the President of the country that doesn't give her the right to waste money which could well go to serve the more than 700million poor Indians who get ignored. You don't need to take your family and friends to foreign countries on state visits. Indian politicians need to learn from politicians of some of the western countries who don't only try to be as transparent as they can in their work and conduct but also speak to the general public and understand the problems. How many times have you seen any Indian politician speaking to the people of its constituency on a day to day basis?
