The parliament food subsidy row: Should it really be scrapped?

The uproar over the parliament subsidy where our esteemed Members of Parliament is growing day by day. The citizens of this country wants it to be removed. They are questioning why the members are allowed to have such food at an abysmal price.

Is the austerity of such things really needed?
If we go through the food subsidies, many central government employees also get such things at very low prices. And what about the other facilities provided to these members like discounted travel, phones, and others. Are they really have to be taken off? Why are we behind such symbolic austerity measures? Why do not we vouch for the accountability for their performance? Let them have all these facilities and rather give a clean and transparent administration. Is it not the need of the hour?
