Good Point, How can someone stop them from doing so, they are also human beings and have right to maintain good health and enjoy entertainment. Just to take a dip at them let us not try to read between the lines, If their purpose is something else it will definately end in the same way as Hosni Mubarak is suffering for all his wrong doings. I always believe for some sins we get punishment in this world only.

The politicians generally take advantage of their positions and take the people for a ride - atleast for medical check up is good, but what about all the other reasons ?

This type of official visits are not unique only to the ministers but we see this at every level of administration which is unethical and a type corruption.They don't have minimum consciousness for the public money that is spent lavishly for their health check-ups abroad.Why don't they have the required health facilities here in this country?If the answer is 'no' what is that the people in power for the past 64 years have done to meet the basic needs including health facilities for 1.25 crore people of this country?Don't they feel ashamed of to make use of their official visit for their personal health check-ups?
All this is happening in our country because of the silence of the silent majorities.I think Anna's fast and the support that the people will show to it will tell to what extent the common people of this country have concerns for the public cause.We have to wait and see 'quit corruption from politics and power' will become a mass movement or otherwise.

Official purpose is to meet IMF and World Bank to get money and unofficial purpose is to go to Las Vegas and spend the money got from IMF/WB.
