Controversy surrounds an order issued to print diaries at the expense of the Tourism Promotion Bureau. The bureau has been told by the Minister of Tourism Achala Jagoda to foot the bill for 20,000 diaries at a cost of approximately Rs 82 Lakhs.
 

However Tourism Ministry secretary Goerge Micheal told Daily Mirror online he had refused to sign the relevant documents to print the diaries. He insisted that there was no need to implement the order despite it being issued by Tourism Minister.

    82 lakhs is nothing, when compared with corruption, amounting to billions!

    Why should the taxpayer be burdened by the ego of one official?

    Maybe the ruling party members think that whatever they plunder from the sinking ship, is lawful?

    A Presidential election is close-by, but the ministers don't seem to mind pressuring the incumbent, by their misuse of public finances - like this.

    Bravo! It is quite refreshing to see at least a few public sector employees, willing to stand up to the skulduggery of the politicos - who are intent on robbing us left, right and center!

    Congratulations, Mr. George Michael! Do not worry, you won't have to leave, because things will be on the correct path, after 27th January!

    I can still remember how this Achala fellow boasted about honesty, as his political ideology, during a TV debate. (I think it was 'Kinihira,' about 7 years ago!)
