In a scathing criticism of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Union Minister of State for External Affairs, V. Muraleedharan, accused him of extorting the people and recklessly spending money on luxuries for the privileged.
The Union Minister’s comments came in response to the government’s decision to grant an honorarium of one lakh rupees per month to KV Thomas instead of regular salary and allowances.
V. Muraleedharan expressed his disapproval of this extravagant expenditure, stating that it places an undue burden on the people who are already burdened with taxes on essential services such as electricity and water.
He further emphasized that on May 28, the Prime Minister would unveil the Central Vista, a proud symbol of Indian democracy and an embodiment of justice beyond authority.
The Union Minister’s remarks shed light on the perceived mismanagement of public funds and the questionable allocation of resources by the Kerala government.
The decision to provide a hefty honorarium to an individual instead of regular salary and allowances has raised eyebrows and sparked a broader debate on responsible governance and fiscal discipline.
