While the nation mourns the death of its favorite President, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, we have another of our former president, Pratibha Patil making headlines for her benefits.

Pratibha Patil is demanding both car and fuel allowance, for which the government will need to bend rules.

Patil’s office wants clearance from the Center for using her personal car in her hometown, which is situated in Pune. Instead, the government foots the fuel bill and if someone wants to go out of town, the government provides an official vehicle for the same.

The dual facility, that she seeks, is not permissible.

How did all of this begin?

1. Pratibha Patil didn’t like the official vehicle that was given to her. She demanded a bigger vehicle which could not be given. So, as a result, she was given a fuel allowance.

2. While traveling outside her hometown (Pune), she used her personal vehicle (which is against the rule).

President’s emoluments clearly state that an ex- President should be provided with an official car or a fuel allowance. Not both.

Pratibha Patil’s demands and activities have been in the news since the time she has served India.

1. Her son and also her brother were allegedly involved in a murder.

2. She has also been accused of taking away all the gifts given during her tenure.

3. She had also demanded an Army land for herself.

So, is this feasible? That is for Government to decide.
But, if we have a look at one more former president, our beloved Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, he never asked for such gifts. He was happy with his old ambassador.

Seems like Pratibha Patil is keen to avail the benefits!
