    All surveyors are same everywhere .Noone does the work for umme.Best keep an eye next time when a surveyor comes to do his job.findout how much is ones work worth.Mistake is also sometime people support such people who wants to get their work fast or sometime when want to encroach the land from others.

    Well Done ACB, please interrogate him, there might higher officials are involved in this bribe as he has to share the amount with his higher officers.

    In doing so, there will be many more 'Gangadhars' in the reckoning. All should be sent to the dungeon.

    Let him be accountable to all his belongings n wealth. All to be distributed amongst his victims with kick to his rotten ass. Need of the hour is: investigate all the public department offices n officials in all, Taluk, panchayats n town levels, not forgetting the police stations. All those who are found guilty to be killed at gun point.

    In Government offices including police department corruption is there. The staff in Government staff take home more than their salary. Should check the above mentioned staff and family's assets will be more than his salary over the years. Problem is people give a bribe for a job to be done, to get your ticket confirmed if your on waiting list or RAC during a train journey people bribe the TTE or TC.

    This is why people want Govt jobs. Especially those who come from backgrounds where thier language and mannerisms wont get them higher paying private jobs. Education that teaches culture and acceptance in all strata of society is the solution to this nature of this class

    Thanks to all ACB Members for helping the Citizens to get their work done without harrassment. When Your work is delayed with fake excuses, tell those who give hard time that you will visit ACB Office in MUDA Building to get work done. I have done it and my work was done fast after 20 days of delay with 20 trips to Office. Done in one day after ACB word was annouced. I kindly request ACB Officials to go Undercover Visiting all Panchayat Offices and act as common Citizen and observe all political Party Members hanging around and using Party Influence to get things done with corruption. Employees get scared of loosing job or transfer if they do ot oblidge. Again Thanks to All ACB Staff at MuDA Building.
