    More powers, more money? How long have you been in politics?Jumping from one position to another makes people get fed up of you.Are you not satisfied with the "MAHA AMATHI" post?Is your dream to be the Prime minister?Then you can sit down and start to do some work for the country, because there will be no other post more powerful than PM, once we get rid of secretarial presidency.
