What are those Exotic and Expensive Gifts received by Ministers and Govt Officials!
In continuation to our existing post, Costliest Mobile Phones gifted to Ministers and Govt Officials as promised, here we are with another report on similar lines. This time we have shared the details of really Exotic and Expensive Gifts received by Ministers and Govt Officials since the beginning of 2014. The list is quite long and indeed really interesting, too! So keep reading.
Let’s know what all Exotic and Expensive Gifts received by them?
Shri Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India on 26 May 2014. Since then, he and his Ministers met so many dignitaries of in India and Abroad. And, as a protocol, they have exchanged so many Exotic and Expensive Gifts, particularly on their first state visit, this is what people call Modi Effect!
Not just Prime Minister or his Cabinet Colleagues have the privilege but many Senior Level Bureaucrats, Diplomats, and also Advisors who haven’t cleared the herculin UPSC Civil Services exam also got such precious and expensive Gifts. And, our analysis shows they receive much more in comparison to their LBSNAA and FSI trained colleagues!
So what all they have pocketed or returned back, so far…?
Well, the list contains almost everything under the Sun and over the Earth which can be gifted and received by any human. And, we must appreciate our PM Shri Narendra Modi who received so many valuable things but in return didn’t gift any precious thing as such & saved Indian Tax-payers’ money. Through the “Gift Diplomacy” of our PM NaMo always tried to bring our rich culture and hereditary in the limelight.
