Mangaluru, Jan 29: At present, all over the country, only 15 paise is being used for actual developmental work out of Rs 100 sanctioned, alleged retired Lokayukta Justice Santhosh Hegde.
Justice Hegde was speaking at a district convention in city on Saturday in the city.
Hegde further said, “When Rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister of India in 1985, there was a saying that only 15 paise is used out of every Re 1 sanctioned for any developmental work. Today the situation has become worse. Only our greed has increased.
The state and union governments are looting crores of rupees from the treasury in the name of development. What kind of development are we seeing?"
“There is a competition now in India to become rich and affluent. This will create a crisis in society. The disease called gluttony is spreading like wildfire throughout the country. It is really scary to think where all this will end,” Justice Hegde expressed concern.
