A taxing solution

Introduce breathing tax, walking tax, talking tax (on road sides), smoking tax (on public places) etc. Install ATD (Any Time Deposit) centres (similar to ATM centres) and `drop boxes' and invite the public to donate money towards State's coffers through cash and cheques liberally for which 100 per cent tax exemption will be given. Scrap the present election system. Instead give all parties a chance to rule the State thereby cutting unnecessary election expenditure.

Ask our MLAs and MPs to attend assembly sessions by means of bullock carts or rickshaws in order to cut undue fuel expenses. Ask every politician, MLA and Minister to contribute Rs. 100, Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 10,000 per month respectively towards State's exchequer.
