I was appalled to read this news. The Planning Commission of India has spent Rs 35 lakh renovating two toilets at its headquarters Yojana Bhawan – Rs. 5 lakh to install a smart card controlled entry to the loo and Rs. 30 lakh on the renovation.
In a country where the definition of the poverty line in urban areas is Rs. 32 a day, could we not find a better use for this money?
