According to a notification issued by the Department of Personnel and Administration (protocol) on July 11, government will reimburse the amount he paid for treatment at Mount Elizabeth hospital.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who also heads the Finance Department, told reporters that “In special cases we can give. It is the discretion of the government.”

As per the Medical Attendance Rule of 1958, the maximum reimbursement normally is Rs 5 lakh, provided ministers avail treatment within the country if facilities are available.

Why Politicians can do this?
Reason is simple they got the unlimited powers without any accountability

India needs a law which will take away all the discretionary powers of elected politicians.
