Can't we do something about this stinking corruption?It is not without reason that Tamil Nadu is now being compared with Bihar. At least Bihar had only one Lallu.
In Tamil Nadu, we have too many Lallus in the ruling party, the AIADMK.
For example, one corrupt politician, now a key minster, who was in the news for his ridiculous suggestion of saving water at Madurai in the Vaigai Dam, through use of thermocol, is known to have amassed at least three hundred acres of land in Kerala in his wife 's name. This is known to even a person on the street, and the Income Tax department knows it. Yet, this guy fools around, talking absolute nonsense and his contribution to his own department is a big zero. Only some honest officers of his department are doing something.
Another Minister, whose name is well documented with the use of the banned Gutkha ( a dangerous drug) and with having accepted crores from dealers of this drug, shamelessly hangs on to his post.
It is not that Jayalalitha. in her lifetime did not know about all this atrocities. She knew each and every bit of every corruption. The fact is that her benami, called Sasikala, the mother of all corruption, who cools her heals in the prison at Bangalore, was actively involved in taking a cut in each and every case.
An estimated 60,000 crores of money, all in hard cash, is supposed to be hidden somewhere by the members of the ruling party. No one does anything about all this.
Why have we become so insensitive? The local media does highlight something and there is some support for action against corruption. However, whatever little is being done, is sought to be destroyed with the help of the police.
We need a Marina kind of protest against all atrocities. We need to understand that the once peaceful State of Tamil Nadu is one of the worst in terms of corruption, crime and lawlessness, and can be safely compared to Bihar or some other corrupted State, including UP.
What can we, as Tamilians and as Indian citizens do? How can we mobilize support and even file cases of corruption against the known corrupt people in power?
Members may throw some light on these vital questions please.
