Austerity and Sacrifice Congress Style

For over three months now, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna is at ITC's Maurya on Sardar Patel Marg and his junior Shashi Tharoor at Hotel Taj Mahal on Man Singh Road. Krishna is checked in at the Maurya's Presidential suite on the 16th floor. There is no declared tariff for the four Presidential suites in the hotel which have had guests like US President George W Bush and Bill Clinton. Industry insiders say the room tariff is in the range of Rs 1 lakh plus per night. Tharoor has been staying in a Taj suite and the lowest tariff for suites in the Taj Man Singh is Rs 40,000 per night (executive balcony suite)

1.4 Crore for just 100 day stay… Who pays … God Knows
