Lasika, so-called Shambhala2011-12-13 20:00
The parliamentary majority in Georgia is ready to make a show of their feelings to protect the right of Mikhail Saakashvili for the extravagance. The deputy Goka Gabashvili asked the opposition to stop scoff on Lasika - a new city, the president's whim. The fact is that the Christian Democrats (who are very mild critics, allowed to the paliament) have proposed a brilliant project - Shambhala, involving Indian investments.
Christian Democrats have made the discussion of Georgia's budget for 2012 livelier. Levan Vepkhvadze, having quickly read the document, has found an expense item for the city, recently conceived by President Mikheil Saakashvili. "What I could not find in the budget - it's Lasika. The new project was codenamed "Lasika". We were promised that it will be funded in amount of 200 million GEL. But where these 200 million will appear if they are not built into the budget?", one of the leaders of the opposition faction shrugged his shoulders.
It's really strange if you remember that Saakashvili had promised to begin the basic infrastructural work in 2012.
The MP of the majority Nugzar Tsiklauri reassured his colleague, saying that the trapdoors will give the money for Lasika. Moreover, not Georgian, but the Turkish, that is that part of the ethnographic group that once lived on the historical lands of Lasika, but now is abroad. The Turks have already bought half of Adjara, so why should not they pay for another fantasy of Mikhail Saakashvili?
"It is reasonable idea", Vepkhvadze praised the "national". "Though, as the Ostap Bender said, I offer you a congenial idea, let's build "Shambala" in the Caucasus Mountain and offer the Indians to invest in it.
Indeed, the provision of the necessary facilities in Shambhala would be much more attractive project. Crowds of pilgrims will arrive to Georgia. And they must not specialy build anything - there're enough good caves in the mountains, they must just populate them with Mahatmas. If someone asks what happened with 200 million GEL, which will be invested in a new project, you can safely answer: this is a great mystery and mysticism.
They are openly laughing at Saakashvili. Jondi Baghaturia compared him with Baron Munchausen who pulled himself out of the swamp by his hair.
Construction of a new city is the futile attempt to pull Georgia out of an abusive place where it got stuck under Saakashvili.
