UPA's communal budgeting

Is there any parallel anywhere in the world to this absurdity? If there is, I would hazard a guess that the pernicious formula must have been invented in some third world hellhole like Lebanon or the Balkans. Apparently, if 15% of the nation's population is comprised of "Minorities", then 15% of all government expenditure MUST be on their welfare!!!

It is the "eminent economists", mentioned in the order of their eminence - Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram, Montek Singh Ahluwalia who are proposing this, but it stinks of something that a certain Bihari minister, quite popular of late as a research subject in international academia, would conceive of.

The BJP is rightly opposing this communal budgeting. They should also ask a counter question, i.e. how much does this 15% contribute to tax revenues? Do the Kashmiri Mujahideen or the illegal Bangladeshi infiltrators (numbering 30 million/3 crore, by some accounts) contribute anything at all to merit all this expenditure on their welfare?

Atrocious. The UPA should be tried for treason for not thinking of national interests and having their vested agenda in appeasement politics. And the very same rascals have the audacity to condemn BJP as a communal party! They seem to be taking the country to a free fall.

The aside about "a certain Bihar minister ... etc etc". Actually they've made Laloo a subject of study because then they will know how to deal with Laloo Mark II i.e. Hugo Chavez.
