Land ear­marked for the home­less given to favourites!

- Homelessness · Social Issues · Society

Awhite-col­lar high-up, a po­lit­i­cal ap­pointee, is said to have given a plot of State land to his own driver, and a clerk de­spite it had al­ready been ear­marked for al­lo­ca­tion to two other fam­i­lies ren­dered home­less due to an earth slide.

This high-up, known to be highly cor­rupt, clings on to the present post with a cov­etous eye on kick­backs though he could, given his se­nior­ity, eas­ily get a pro­mo­tion to a higher po­si­tion at the district level, they say.

There had been sev­eral protests made against this il­le­gal land trans­fer but to no avail.
