Public Houses Become Private
There cannot be a better script than the Edit ‘A Suitable Residence for the Once-Mighty’ (Apr 18) to highlight the misdemeanour of the mighty for keeping government residences tucked away for their use almost forever. Almost all of them have had foreign junkets, but they never observed the civility in the civvy streets and the canons of propriety being maintained there. This is nothing but extortion with political clout. PM Modi should put an end to this unique largesse with a view to relieve the burden on the nation.
