This is a crude joke. If PM is serious about austerity then he should reduce size of his cabinet, withdraw non cash perks currently paid to cabinet, military, bureaucracy, judiciary and parliamentarians including electricity, petrol, travel, security, house servants from the serving and the retired.

In all social & economic indexes, we are below 138 out of 145 countries? Ever government plays with poor public but they are very serious about their personal illegal gains
