A newspaper carried a story about Sithal Prasad, who is employed as junior engineer in the Public Works Department owns few bungalows in Nimach, Indore, few farmhouses, luxury cars, fixed deposits and lockers with huge sums of cash. For all those people who were surprised at this news report, I want to tell them that it is not something new. We have examples where a peon in a government department possesses 4.5 crore rupees worth assets. If a peon can amass so much wealth why can’t a Junior engineer, much higher in rank and intellect? After all, he takes care of public works that include building roads, water supply schemes and drainage and everyone knows the money that is spent on these projects.
It is only a matter of time and chance that executive and superintending engineers haven’t been caught by the tainted police. Otherwise the whole system is rotten and neck deep in corruption.
