Austerity.. Ya right..Rahul Gandhi’s flying visit to Tamil Nadu cost over Rs.1 crore

It seems the Crown Princes austerity starts and ends in front of TV cameras.  His recent travel bill during his three-day visit down south ran to seven figures, not exactly a sum the word “austerity” conjures up. At about Rs.1.5 lakh an hour for a helicopter, and Rs. 1.1 lakh an hour for the Beechcraft aircraft that Mr. Gandhi used for most of the long haul, his Tamil Nadu darshan would have cost the Indian National Youth Congress over Rs. 1 crore in helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft hire charges
