    Is it not hilarious that, in a country steeped in corruption from top to bottom, only 66 persons have been identified as corrupt? Any way, most of the accused are certainly going to be finally acquitted to the pecuniary benefit of some while many others will, in case they are punished, enjoy the loot after their punishment is over, as has been the practice in the country. Our anti-corruption machinery has no teeth, except to harass the honest people and protect the corrupt. Until there is a law to confiscate the entire assets/properties of the corrupt and this law is ruthlessly administered, this hide-and-seek game will go on to the loss of the exchequer. In a country where transfers and postings are saleable and constitute the most profitable venture, and that too absolutely openly, what is the relevance of a miniscule figure of 66 corrupt people? Has anyone the courage of declaring that no bribe is required to be paid in the police, municipalities, govt. hospitals, CGHS, DDA-like organisations, universities/colleges (for admission or for getting jobs), etc.?
