Modi’s clout in the BJP is undoubted, his leadership has brought BJP to the forefront after a long gap of ten years. Ministers are leaving no stone unturned in communicating the achievements of the government on every platform possible. Every minster is seen tweeting or posting blogs about PM Modi. Sometimes it is also seen that the ministers tweet first and then PM Modi speaks on that issue.
Cabinet ministers like Ravi Shankar Prasad, Prakash Javdekar and Piyush Goyal are always the first ones to ride on the bandwagon. They have been exhausting their internet packages very soon, sometimes even in a single day and this has increased their expenses on the internet bills. According to them, they should be paid special allowances to cover for their net expenses so that they can talk about the PM at any given point of time.
Congress MPs have objected the demand as that would put extra burden on the taxpayer and would increase the government budget.
