All this misuse of public funds to host IFFI---is it worth it? Crores of rupees of the tax payer's money spent on this event could have been better utilized for improving the infrastructure like roads, water supply and power supply. The IFFI as well as the functions arranged by the Commissioner for NRIs and the foreign trips--appears to be just waste and misuse of public funds...Or are such events organised to keep the party workers and politicians happy at the cost of tax payer's money...?
