Would ‘liberals’ prefer to build a Rs 3356 crore ‘Statue of Corruption’?

Come on, liberal friends, the Statue of Corruption can be a national memorial to all our scams and the “honest” Prime Ministers who presided over them. What say?

Of late the figure of Rs 3000 crore has come to be much celebrated in the liberal circuit of Indian media. It comes up in every possible context involving people, money and government expenditure. For example :

The reason, of course, is the Statue of Unity inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Oct 31 as a tribute to Sardar Patel on his birth anniversary, a monument that cost somewhere around Rs 3000 crore.

For the liberal ecosystem, that must have stung. Especially because the liberal ecosystem is running numerous Break India projects at this moment. From spreading hatred against Bihari labourers in Gujarat to gorging on Tinsukia terror attack to create division between Bengalis and Assamese.

For the last few days, liberals have therefore been coming back to the figure of 3000 crores for everything. How many schools, hospitals, space programs, IITs, IIMs, etc… could have been made for that money? How many roads, railways, airports, etc?

Interestingly, to my knowledge, I am yet to see any liberal counting the cost of the Statue of Unity in terms of the number of social “science” PhD students that could have been funded at JNU to study Africology. It’s almost like liberals already know which forms of spending generate zero value for society at large.

And that is why I have a question for India’s liberals: would you prefer to build a 3356 crore Statue of Corruption?

Where did I get this number from? See here:

Where else would he have gone?

Just to remind people, Madhu Koda was an independent MLA who managed to become Jharkhand CM with the support of the Congress Party. And he did exactly what you would expect an independent MLA who leads an unstable government to do. He made as much hay as he could while the sun was still shining.

Of course, none of the blame for this attached to the “honest” government of “honest” Dr Manmohan Singh. I wonder whether Narendra Modi would have faced any questions today had piles of cash been recovered from one of the BJP’s sitting Chief Ministers. But then, you can’t compare Modi to the “honest” Manmohan Singh, can you?

So how much hay did Madhu Koda make?

Ah, 3356 crores!

Just one of the many “small expenses” that the nation was forced to incur during the secular rule of the UPA.

I mentioned earlier that I want to ask my liberal friends a question. Tell me, what could have the nation done with this Rs 3356 crore?

This should be easy for you. Only recently you have done the math for Rs 3000 crore in terms of everything from roads, schools, electricity, hospitals to IITs and IIMs. Just find a calculator and reel off the numbers corresponding to 3356 crores, will you?

Or would you prefer to build a Rs 3356 crore Statue of Corruption? As you can see, the dirty money was already being invested in real estate. So why not invest it into one single spectacular Statue of Corruption that will attract lakhs of tourists from across the world?

Come on, liberal friends, the Statue of Corruption can be a national memorial to all our scams and the “honest” Prime Ministers who presided over them. What say?
