Why so much of hue and cry? Why can't people see the bigger picture?
In a state crippled with un-employment, if she is building monuments, she is creating job opportunities. If she is recruiting security personals, she is giving those guys an option to live a life of their own as serving state government employees. If those personals will take care of area surrounding the monuments, including the public facilities, what's wrong in that. Don't you remember the pathetic situation of those facilities at other places, smile, you will get a cleaner and properly maintained public facilities next time you will visit any place like that. Which chief minister of UP in past has thought something innovative like this for the people of their state
So the benefits you have are
- Employment for people
- Better maintained parks
- Hence income for the state from tourism
- Wastage of tax payer's money
- Why not security for general people?
Till the time you get better options, why don't take what you are getting as of now. So smile, this is the best government available which you can buy :)
