Everyone is aware that the Indian Prime Minister has been traveling a lot lately meeting delegates of various countries, getting a lot of investments and of course taking ‘Selfies’ we all know he’s a crazy selfie fan ! In a RTI Query filed in May, had sought information on his foreign visits, out of which I got the reply for one of the ‘sub-query’. I had asked how many people accompanied the Prime Minister on all his foreign Trips ?
Well, exactly after 4 months, got a reply from the Ministry of External Affairs. And according to the reply, there were more than 700+ delegates who accompanied the Prime Minister on all his foreign trips !
So as per the reply, the most number of delegates who accompanied the prime minister were on his Australian tour DownUnder (you know now, I’m a cricket fan :P) 69 people accompanied him on that particular tour. And to be precise the Prime Minister has taken 717 people on the world tour. Well, we understand that he’s the prime minister and can very well take as many people as he wants, and I’m not denying that all of the 700 odd people were irrelevant for the trip, but just that its a bit too much.
Further awaiting details of the expenditure on his trips, let’s see how much that turns out to be !
